If I wanted to become a tramp, I would seek information and advice from the most successful tramp I could find. If I wanted to become a failure, I would seek advice from men who have never succeeded. If I wanted to succeed in all things, I would look around me for those who are succeeding, and do as they have done.
- Joseph Marshall Wade
Clearly the most unfortunate people are those who must do the same thing over and over again, every minute, or perhaps twenty to the minute. They deserve the shortest hours and the highest pay.
- John Kenneth Galbraith

A tremendous number of people in America work very hard at something that bores them. Even a rich man thinks he has to go down to the office everyday. Not because he likes it but because he can't think of anything else to do.
- W. H. Auden
What work I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it. Who was it who said, "Blessed is the man who has found his work"? Whoever it was he had the right idea in his mind. Mark you, he says his work - not somebody else's work. The work that is really a man's own work is play and not work at all. Cursed is the man who has found some other man's work and cannot lose it. When we talk about the great workers of the world we really mean the great players of the world. The fellows who groan and sweat under the weary load of toil that they bear never can hope to do anything great. How can they when their souls are in a ferment of revolt against the employment of their hands and brains? The product of slavery, intellectual or physical, can never be great.
- Mark Twain

Work is not a curse, but drudgery is.
- Henry Ward Beecher
Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish.

I’m a copywriter for an ad agency. It involves being a total asshole. I do it for the money, it’s easy and horrible. I do nothing good for society.
- American worker Isabelle Kuprin talking about her job,
in a book The Great Divide by the legendary Studs Terkel 
If you believe it can't be done, at least don't get in the way of the person who is doing it.
- Unknown wise person
A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit.
- Richard Bach
You are what you do. If you do boring, stupid, monotonous work, chances are you'll end up boring, stupid, and monotonous.
- Bob Black

If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell
yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches.
- Rainer Maria Rilke

I had a boring office job. I cleaned the windows in the envelopes.
- Rita Rudner

The less of routine, the more of life.
- A. B. Alcott
Seek above all for a game worth playing. Such is the oracle to modern man. Having found the game, play it with intensity; play as if your life and sanity depend on it. (They do depend on it).
- D. S. Ropp
To know and not to do is not yet to know.
- Buddhist saying
When a true genius appears in the world, you will know him by this sign, that all the dunces are in confederacy against him.
- Jonathan Swift
It takes a strong fish to swim against the current. Even a dead one can float with it.
- John Crow

Being a well-dressed man is a career, and he who goes in for it has no time for anything else.

Quit now, you'll never make it. If you disregard this advice, you'll
be halfway there.
- David Zucker

The best careers advice to give to the young is "Find out what you like doing best and get someone to pay you for doing it."
