He who labours, prays.
  [Lat., Qui laborat, orat.]
      - attributed to Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

      - Henry Ward Beecher

There is always work, and tools to work withal, for those, who will.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
  Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
    Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
      - Bible, I Thessalonians (ch. I, v. 2-4)

For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
      - Bible, I Timothy (ch. V, v. 18)

Work is God's ordinance ad truly as prayer.
      - George Dana Boardman

Hard workers are usually honest. Industry lifts them above temptation.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Next to faith in God, is faith in labor.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

What men want is not talent, it is purpose; not the power to achieve, but the will to labor.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Such hath it been--shall be--beneath the sun
  The many still must labour for the one.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        The Corsair (canto I, st. 8)

Not all the labor of the earth
  Is done by hardened hands.
      - Will Carleton, A Working Woman

In labor news, longshoremen walked off the piers today; rescue operations are continuing.
      - George Carlin

All true work is sacred.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Labor is life: from the inmost heart of the worker rises his God-given force, the sacred celestial life-essence breathed into him by Almighty God!
      - Thomas Carlyle

Labor, wide as the earth, has its summit in heaven.
      - Thomas Carlyle

There is a perennial nobleness and even sacredness in work. Were he ever so benighted, forgetful of his high calling, there is always hope in a man that actually and earnestly works.
      - Thomas Carlyle

And yet without labour there were no ease, no rest, so much as conceivable.
      - Thomas Carlyle, Essays--Characteristics

They can expect nothing but their labor for their pains.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        Don Quixote--Author's Preface

Labor is discovered to be the grand conqueror, enriching and building up nations more surely than the proudest battles.
      - William Ellery Channing, War

There is no doubt of the essential nobility of that man who pours into life the honest vigor of his toil, over those who compose the feathery foam of fashion that sweeps along Broadway; who consider the insignia of honor to consist in wealth and indolence; and who, ignoring the family history, paint coats of arms to cover up the leather aprons of their grandfathers.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

What is there that is illustrious that is not also attended by labor?
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)
