SERVANTS
[ Also see Dependence Employment Masters Servility Slavery Stewardship ]

Be not served with kinsman, or friends, or men intreated to stay; for they expect much, and do little; nor with such as are amorous, for their heads are intoxicated; and keep rather too few, than one too many.
      - William Henry Burleigh

Expect not more from servants than is just;
  Reward them well, if they observe their trust,
    Nor with them cruelty or pride invade;
      Since God and nature them our brothers made.
      - Sir John Denham

If thou hast a loitering servant, send him of thy errand just before his dinner.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

Reward a good servant well; and rather get quit of a bad one than disquiet thyself with him.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

Sir, the servants, instead of doing what they are bid, stand round the table in idle clusters, gaping upon their guests; and seem as unfit to attend a company, as to steer a man of war.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

A faithful and good servant is a real godsend; but truly 't is a rare bird in the land.
      - Martin Luther

From the king
  To the beggar, by gradation, all are servants;
    And you must grant, the slavery is less
      To study to please one, than many.
      - Philip Massinger

Perfect servants would be the worst of all for certain masters, whose happiness consists in finding fault with them.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

Let thy servants be such as thou mayest command, and entertain none about thee but yeomen, to whom thou givest wages; for those that will serve thee without thy hire will cost thee treble as much as they that know thy fare.
      - Sir Walter Raleigh (1)
