There is only one way... to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it.
There is work that is work and there is play that is play; there is play that is work and work that is play. And in only one of these lies happiness.
There's no substitute for hard work.
Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is the probable reason so few engage in it.
To finish first, you must first finish.
To love what you do and feel that it matters - how could anything be more fun?
Henry Van Dyke
Use what talents you possess; The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Anna Robertson Brown
Value work. But not any kind of work. Ask yourself, "Is the work vital, strengthening my own character, or inspiring others, or helping the world?"
We know where most of the creativity, the innovation, the stuff that drives productivity lies - in the minds of those closest to the work.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
