Labor

Famous quotes containing the word labor:

    Poetry is the only life got, the only work done, the only pure product and free labor of man, performed only when he has put all the world under his feet, and conquered the last of his foes.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The rights and interests of the laboring man will be protected and cared for, not by the labor agitators, but by the Christian men to whom God in His infinite wisdom has given control of the property interests of the country.
    George Baer (1842–1914)

    I know my state, both full of shame and scorn,
    Conceived in sin, and unto labor born,
    Standing with fear, and must with horror fall,
    And destined unto judgment, after all.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
