The best verse hasn't been rhymed yet,
  The best house hasn't been planned,
    The highest peak hasn't been climbed yet,
      The mightiest rivers aren't spanned;
        Don't worry and fret, faint-hearted,
          The chances have just begun
            For the best jobs haven't been started,
              The best work hasn't been done.
      - Berton Braley, No Chance

Beloved, let us love so well,
  Our work shall still be better for our love,
    And still our love be sweeter for our work,
      And both, commended, for the sake of each,
        By all true workers and true lovers born.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Get work. Be sure it is better than what you work to get.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

God did anoint thee with His odorous oil, to wrestle not to reign.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

By the way,
  The works of women are symbolical.
    We sew, sew, prick our fingers, dull out sight,
      Producing what? A pair of slippers, sir,
        To put on when you're weary--or a stool
          To tumble over and vex you . . . curse that stool!
            Or else at best, a cushion where you lean
              And sleep, and dream of something we are not,
                But would be for your sake. Alas, alas!
                  This hurts most, this . . . that, after all, we are paid
                    The worth of our work, perhaps.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh
         (bk. I, l. 465)

Get leave to work
  In this world,--'tis the best you get at all.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh
         (bk. III, l. 164)

Let no one till his death
  Be called unhappy. Measure not the work
    Until the day's out and the labour done.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh
         (bk. V, l. 78)

Free men freely work:
  Whoever fears God, fears to sit at ease.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh
         (bk. VIII, l. 784)

In this bad, twisted, topsy-turvy world,
  Where all the heaviest wrongs get uppermost.(Browning, E.B.} The wide world is all before us--
    But a world without a friend.
      - Robert Burns

And still be doing, never done.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. I, canto I, l. 204)

Anyone who can walk to the welfare office can walk to work.
      - Al Capp

Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.
      - George Carlin

The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity.
      - George Carlin

All men, if they work not as in the great taskmaster's eye, will work wrong, and work unhappily for themselves and for you.

The modern majesty consists in work. What a man can do is his greatest ornament, and he always consults his dignity by doing it.

Work is alone noble.
      - Thomas Carlyle

It is the first of all problems for a man to find out what kind of work he is to do in this universe.

Genuine Work alone, what thou workest faithfully, that is eternal, as the Almighty Founder and World-Builder himself.
      - Thomas Carlyle, Past and Present
         (bk. II, ch. XVII)

All work, even cotton-spinning, is noble; work is alone noble.
      - Thomas Carlyle, Past and Present
         (bk. III, ch. IV)

With hand on the spade and heart in the sky
  Dress the ground and till it;
    Turn in the little seed, brown and dry,
      Turn out the golden millet.
        Work, and your house shall be duly fed:
          Work, and rest shall be won;
            I hold that a man had better be dead
              Than alive when his work is done.
      - Alice Cary, Work

Keep thyself unspotted from the world.
      - Richard Cecil

Each natural agent works but to this end,--
