TOIL
[ Also see Labor ]

He chooses best, whose labor entertains
  Hs vacant fancy most; the toil you hate
    Fatigues you soon, and scarce improves your limbs.
      - John Armstrong

The body * * *
  Much toil demands; the lean elastic less.
    While winter chills the blood and binds the veins,
      No labors are too hard; by those you 'scape
        The slow diseases of the torpid year,
          Endless to name.
      - John Armstrong

Toil, and be strong; by toil the flaccid nerves
  Grow firm, and gain a more compacted tone:
    The greener juices are by toil subdued,
      Mellow'd, and subtilis'd; the vapid old
        Expell'd, and all the rancor of the blood.
      - John Armstrong

Toil to some is happiness, and rest to others. This man can only breathe in crowds, and that man only in solitudes.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Toil says the proverb, is the sire of fame.
      - Euripides

Toil and pleasure, in their natures opposite, are yet linked together in a kind of necessary connection.
      - Titus Livy

And blessed are the horny hands of toil.
      - James Russell Lowell

Toil is man's allotment; toil of brain, or toil of hands, or a grief that's more than either, the grief and sin of idleness.
      - Herman Melville

To toil for a hard master is bitter, but to have no master to toil for is more bitter still.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)
