Famous quotes containing the word labour:

    Are we aware of our obligations to a mob? It is the mob that labour in your fields and serve in your houses—that man your navy, and recruit your army—that have enabled you to defy the world, and can also defy you when neglect and calamity have driven them to despair. You may call the people a mob; but do not forget that a mob too often speaks the sentiments of the people.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    A bad book is as much of a labour to write as a good one; it comes as sincerely from the author’s soul.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    He’ll fear not what men say,
    He’ll labour night and day
    To be a Pilgrim.
    John Bunyan (1628–1688)
