Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before. He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way.
      - Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Cat's Cradle

Too long, that some may rest,
  Tired millions toil unblest.
      - Sir William Watson (2),
        New National Anthem

But when dread Sloth, the Mother of Doom, steals in,
  And reigns where Labour's glory was to serve,
    Then is the day of crumbling not far off.
      - Sir William Watson (2), The Mother of Doom

In books, or work, or healthful play,
  Let my first years be past,
    That I may give for every day
      Some good account at last.
      - Isaac Watts,
        Divine and Moral Songs for Children--Against Idleness and Mischief
         (song XX)

There will be little drudgery in this better ordered world. Natural power harnessed in machines will be the general drudge. What drudgery is inevitable will be done as a service and duty for a few years or months out of each life; it will not consume nor degrade the whole life of anyone.
      - H.G. Wells (Herbert George Wells),
        Outline of History (ch. XLI, par. 4)

Thine to work as well as pray,
  Clearing thorny wrongs away;
    Plucking up the weeds of sin,
      Letting heaven's warm sunshine in.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier,
        The Curse of the Charter-Breakers

Work is the curse of the drinking class.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

The better work men do is always done under stress and at great personal cost.
      - William Carlos Williams

The world is all title-page without contents.
      - Edward Young

What is this world? thy school, O Misery!
      - Edward Young
