DILIGENCE
[ Also see Attention Efficiency Effort Employment Industry Labor Neglect Perseverance Sloth Work ]

Diligence is the mother of good fortune.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

Like clocks, one wheel another on must drive,
  Affairs by diligent labors only thrive.
      - George Chapman

Diligence which, as it avails in all things, is also of the utmost moment in pleading causes. Diligence is to be particularly cultivated by us; it is to be constantly exerted; it is capable of effecting almost everything.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

The expectations of life depend upon diligence; and the mechanic that would perfect his work, must first sharpen his tools.
      - Confucius

To be rich be diligent; move on
  Like heav'ns great movers that enrich the earth;
    Whose moment's sloth would show the world undone;
      And make the spring straight bury all her birth.
        Rich are the diligent who can command
          Time--nature's stock.
      - Sir William D'Avenant

Diligence is the mother of good luck, and God gives all things to industry. Then plough deep while sluggards sleep, and you shall have corn to sell and to keep.
      - Benjamin Franklin

As he that lives longest lives but a little while, every man may be certain that he has no time to waste. The duties of life are commensurate to its duration; and every day brings its task, which, if neglected, is doubled on the morrow.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Diligence in employments of less consequence is the most successful introduction to greater enterprises.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

What we hope ever to do with ease, we must learn first to do with diligence.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Who makes quick use of the moment, is a genius of prudence.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

It is want of diligence rather than want of means that causes most fail-ures.
      - Alfred Mercier

The more the marble wastes, the more the statue grows.
      - Michelangelo (Michelangelo Buonarrotti)

Patience and diligence, like faith, remove mountains.
      - William Penn

Prefer diligence before idleness, unless you esteem rust above brightness.
      - Plato (originally Aristocles}

Diligence is the basis of wealth, and thrift the source of riches.
      - Proverb, (Chinese)

That which ordinary men are fit for, I am qualified in; and the best of me is diligence.
      - William Shakespeare

All work done mindfully rounds us out, helps complete us as persons.
      - Marsha Sinetar

Diligence, above all, is the mother of good luck.
      - Samuel Smiles
