Famous quotes containing the words labor and/or human:

    Nothing is hard for lovers, no labor is difficult for those who wish it.
    Jerome (c. 340–420)

    There is, however, this consolation to the most way-worn traveler, upon the dustiest road, that the path his feet describe is so perfectly symbolical of human life,—now climbing the hills, now descending into the vales. From the summits he beholds the heavens and the horizon, from the vales he looks up to the heights again. He is treading his old lessons still, and though he may be very weary and travel-worn, it is yet sincere experience.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
