I hope you’re enjoying your day off today and spending time with family and friends (or just relaxing by yourself.) Labor Day is usually a day where we have a little fun and then also make a point to enjoy the down time. Life is so busy today and it’s nice to get a collective pause and just enjoy our blessings.
The power of work is one of those blessings. Work gives us purpose, allows us to raise families and live, and provides a way to take care of each other. Whether you work inside the home or out, here are some Labor Day quotes to inspire you.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”
“There is no substitute for hard work.”
John D. Rockefeller
“I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.”
“It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.”
