Quotes about Work:
(The quote in the title of this post)~Vanna Bonta
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play…. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.
The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems, and often political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.
The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all that you encounter.
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations.
~George Bernard Shaw
Don’t help me or serve me, but let me see it once, because I need it. Don’t work for my happiness, my brothers (and sisters)-show me yours-show me that it is possible-show me your achievement-and the knowledge will give me the courage for mine. Mallory (the young artist) to Roark in “The Fountainhead”
I hope everyone is having a good work week.
I am swamped right at the moment, hence my not blogging this last few days.
The day, she beckons me to work…and I needed to get the old brain pan fired up with useful stuff before I set my shoulders and get through the day with love as my motivation and not resignation. Love is so much more fun, and profitable.
Don’t you think?
