I have a photograph at home of Fred Astaire from the knees down with his feet crossed. It’s kind of inspiring because it reminds me his feet were bleeding at the end of rehearsals.

I hope there will be some good news and some good profits, and people will realize we have a lot of outstanding executives, and a lot of companies that are doing a good job, and those are good companies to invest in.
Don Nickles
For any young people looking for job opportunities, good grades and academic results are important, but what is more important may be showing you are someone who has the drive and capability and can fit in the company culture.
Leave your ego at the door every morning, and just do some truly great work. Few things will make you feel better than a job brilliantly done.
I remember the first job I ever had was working on ‘Firefly,’ and I was talking to Joss Whedon, and he was asking if I was going to Comic-Con. He called me a loser for not going that first year.
Michael McMillian
When we were starting off as kids, just the idea of maybe going to do this as a living instead of getting what we thought was going to be a boring job, was exciting.
The paparazzi do what they do, man. They have a job, too.
Social class has worked for years. Born into the right family, go to the right schools, even if you’re not super bright to start with, you’ll turn out bright. You go to the right university, you get the right job, you have the right connections, you’ll make it to the top. Job done, very efficient.
Understand, our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day. They’ve got a tough job to do to maintain public safety and hold accountable those who break the law.
God put us here to prepare this place for the next generation. That’s our job. Raising children and helping the community, that’s preparing for the next generation.
No matter what job or industry you’re in, life is hard, but we’re all going through a difficult time and the best thing we can do is pick each other up and move on together.
I love our daughters more than anything in the world – more than life itself. And while that may not be the first thing that some folks want to hear from an Ivy-league-educated lawyer, it is truly who I am. So for me, being Mom-in-Chief is, and always will be, job number one.
I think I did a pretty good job – particularly when I was racing with Hakkinen. It was maybe the first time that I have been challenging with the big boys, and I really enjoyed it.
Okay, fluoride in the water to help our teeth. Well, shouldn’t that be the job of your mom and dad? To teach you how to brush your teeth and use mouth wash? What do we need the government to do it for? Clearly, what a scam. Fluoride in the water.
It is easier to do a job right than to explain why you didn’t.
I realize I don’t do a very good job in keeping up to date, but I try to.
I think the older that I’m getting, the more I’m understand what a privileged job I have, and what an opportunity I have. Now I’m directing films and I’m getting my first movie in America off the ground, and you start to understand how the system really works.
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.
Ellen Goodman
The next day I was put on paid leave from my new job at Louisiana State University. This is very painful to me, though once again I understand the circumstances in which my employers find themselves in light of these actions taken against me.
To have a successful writing career, you must be willing to sacrifice a great deal. The book, the deadline come first before anything else. Writing is not a job; it is a lifestyle, and it is a roller-coaster ride of highs and lows. You need self-confidence and an iron carapace.
To me, job titles don’t matter. Everyone is in sales. It’s the only way we stay in business.
When it comes to space, I see it as my job, I’m building infrastructure the hard way. I’m using my resources to put in place heavy lifting infrastructure so the next generation of people can have a dynamic, entrepreneurial explosion into space.
Work takes on new meaning when you feel you are pointed in the right direction. Otherwise, it’s just a job, and life is too short for that.
I attack ideas. I don’t attack people. And some very good people have some very bad ideas. And if you can’t separate the two, you gotta get another day job. You don’t want to be a judge. At least not a judge on a multi-member panel.
There is one crucial rule that must be followed in all

There is one crucial rule that must be followed in all creative meetings. Never speak first. At least at the start, your job is to shut up.
William Goldman
I do my job like I breathe.
The most important job you’ll ever have is in the walls of your own home.
Jane Clayson
The purpose of satire has been rightly stated as to strip off the veneer of comforting illusion and cosy half truth, and our job, as I see it, is to put it back again!
Michael Flanders
The paradigm of competition is a race: by rewarding the winner, we encourage everyone to run faster. When capitalism really works this way, it does a good job; but its defenders are wrong in assuming it always works this way.
There is nothing to regret with a job well done.
In Japan, a company worker’s position is secure. He is retrained for another job if his present job is eliminated by productivity improvement.
If you do a good job for others, you heal yourself at the same time, because a dose of joy is a spiritual cure. It transcends all barriers.
Ed Sullivan
I think the person who takes a job in order to live – that is to say, for the money – has turned himself into a slave.
I must cut lots of weight. Isn’t nice, but it’s part of my job and I can make it very easy.
I can’t wait to front my band with these new songs and play for fans, but I’ve decided to keep my day job too.
I accidentally met Don Callis in Japan. I was at New Japan and I was with mutual friends, and I met Don on accident and started telling him some of my ideas. We started talking and he basically at dinner was saying, ‘Hey, we should give you a job.’
Scarlett Bordeaux
A leader’s job is not to do the work for others, it’s to help others figure out how to do it themselves, to get things done, and to succeed beyond what they thought possible.
Our job as gay people was to come out, to be visible – to live in the truth, as I say – to get out of the lie.
If something happened where I couldn’t write music anymore, it would kill me. It’s not just a job. It’s not just a hobby. It’s why I get up in the morning.
Hans Zimmer
If you’ve got an idea, start today. There’s no better time than now to get going. That doesn’t mean quit your job and jump into your idea 100% from day one, but there’s always small progress that can be made to start the movement.
The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
The first time I was homeless was when I went to Atlanta. I was in a homeless shelter, then when I got a job I used to miss the curfew for the shelter. So I ended up sleeping outside in the streets.
Jay Electronica
Any job very well done that has been carried out by a person who is fully dedicated is always a source of inspiration.
I tell you, ‘Firefly’? Best job I ever had. Heartbroken when it was canceled, but had it not been canceled, I never would have gotten ‘Serenity‘. I think ‘Serenity’ is the most incredible thing I’ve ever been able to actually get my hands on and do. I can’t even tell you how much love I have for that project.
Effective teaching may be the hardest job there is.
The game has a cleanness. If you do a good job, the numbers say so. You don’t have to ask anyone or play politics. You don’t have to wait for the reviews.
Sandy Koufax
I graduated from college with a 3.92 GPA with a degree in computer programming and a BFA in fine arts and animation. My first job was painting a mural in the Grimaldi’s in Queens.
JWoww
There’s a road that runs through our humanity and it traverses political and partisan lines, and my job as a U.S. senator is to do everything I can to point to that road that connects our collective humanity and to push forward legislation that’s good for everybody.
Believe me, if anybody has a job and starts at 9, there’s no reason why they can’t get up at 4:30 or five and write for a couple of hours, and give their employers their second-best effort of the day – which is what I did.
I have the Midas touch, in the way that when I hook up with a project, I feel, not speaking cocky or conceited, but there’s a confidence I have. I learned that from Muhammad Ali; I used to bodyguard him. He taught me about confidence. So when it comes to any job I work, I’m gonna do it good; I’m going to bring it over the top.
A very good leader is someone who has a great team, it’s all about the team. You only have 12 hours or 14 hours a day, if the people that are with you are doing a great job, you can have a great business. If not, it’s not going to work.
Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s job with yesterday‘s tools and yesterday’s concepts.
Outsourcing and globalization of manufacturing allows companies to reduce costs, benefits consumers with lower cost goods and services, causes economic expansion that reduces unemployment, and increases productivity and job creation.
I am amazed about how everyone wants to know about my love life. They whisper to me, ‘Tell me the truth? Is it true?’ Who cares? Because we have this job, we are to say to everybody what we do, or with whom we sleep? It’s a bit absurd, but that’s why everybody lies so much.
The government’s job is good governance for everybody. My government will make policies; if you fit into it, come on board, or stay where you are. My job is not to spoon-feed anyone.
There is a disconnect in education and work. And corpor

There is a disconnect in education and work. And corporates don’t do a great job of skilling. In future, corporates and educational institutions will work closely.
My day job may be exhausting, but cooking is my peace. My dream is to have a big family with lots of grandkids. And we’ll get together every Sunday for a hearty dinner at our house, and we’ll all live in flavorful bliss, happily ever after.
Actions speak louder than words, and the best way to set an example is to just go out and do a good job.
To put it simply, people who are strangers to me will come up and say, ‘Are you that guy from that show?’ I’ll be like, ‘Yeah,’ and they’ll say, ‘Oh, nice job.’ And really, for the most part, it’s people showing appreciation for the work you’ve done.
Computer science inverts the normal. In normal science, you’re given a world, and your job is to find out the rules. In computer science, you give the computer the rules, and it creates the world.
As an actor, you have to face the public all the time. It is a job that people fantasies, but it also creates prejudices; these prejudices are the scariest things. People judge a personal life or your image, and it can affect the characters I play. Therefore, I try not to showcase my personal life too much.
Gong Yoo
By nature, I’m a very positive person, and because I’m happy in myself, and in my life, and I’ve got a great husband, and beautiful children, and I have a job that I love that calls for a certain amount of emotional expression, I get to realise a lot of my dreams and aspirations.
The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.
If you were the only person left on the planet, I would have to attack you. That’s my job.
Mort Sahl
A society in which vocation and job are separated for most people gradually creates an economy that is often devoid of spirit, one that frequently fills our pocketbooks at the cost of emptying our souls.
Sam Keen
I act like I’m always in a good mood when I’m not, but it’s my job.
The team needs a leader to handle everything with rules and constant stability. Mourinho is the ideal man for that job, and we are delighted about it.
Acting is not an important job in the scheme of things. Plumbing is.
Spencer Tracy
Millennials grew up realizing that they can get the job done without having to go to the office.
Joe Biden was first elected to the Senate in 1972 at age 30. Somewhere around 1992, he should have had to go out and get a real job.
My dad’s a teacher and a football coach, and he found a job in New Jersey.
A classic man is a distinguished man. He cares about taste and his craft. He’s all about the simple model that I live by – eat, drink, be swanky, and have fun getting the job done. He makes sure that he’s excellent in all things and that he cares about his neighborhood immensely.
Every Bachelor and Bachelorette says, ‘I never would have dated a person like that or a person from this place.’ But if you’re on the ‘Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelorette,’ obviously your type isn’t working. So our job is to break that comfort barrier.
I’m the luckiest guy in the world. I never really had a job. I was a football player, then a football coach, then a football broadcaster. It’s been my life. Pro football has been my life since 1967. I’ve enjoyed every part of it. Never once did it ever feel like work.
The dull routine of our daily job takes on a new significance, assumes a beauty and importance undreamt of before, if we consider it from the angle of service to God.
Godfrey Winn
Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s job with yesterday‘s tools and yesterday’s concepts.
Money is a bonus of the job, but it doesn’t always make you happy.
I feel fine, I don’t care who the director is. All you have to do is know what your doing – all of us – everybody in the business – that’s all you ask anyone – you know your job, I know mine, let’s go do it.
There’s an examination for young people to go to university. I failed it three times. I failed a lot. So I applied to 30 different jobs and got rejected. I went for a job with the police; they said, ‘You’re no good.’ I even went to KFC when it came to my city. Twenty-four people went for the job. Twenty-three were accepted.
If you do every job like you’re going to do it for the rest of your life, that’s when you get noticed.
It is our job above all in politics to tackle the big issues and to explain them, and have the honesty to say to people, ‘There are no easy solutions here.’
I used to be a calligrapher for weddings and events – that was my side job while I was auditioning. I think handwritten notes are a lost art form. When I booked my first pilot, my dad wrote me a letter that I still have. The idea of someone taking the time to put pen to paper is really special.
I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young. And so… I’m waiting to find the right person, someone who’s willing to take on the job.
After two years at UCLA, I decided to leave. I was convinced that no amount of education would help a black man get a job.
When I was growing up, officers in uniform were very impressive to me. They were doing a job. They were protecting our country; they were heroes. When you wear an old military jacket, there’s some sort of connection to those qualities – to being strong, to being tough, to being a warrior.
People have tried to corner the market on being offended, corner the market on language and corner the market on opinion. Should I lose my job ’cause I offended somebody? No, of course not. Your life should never be affected by public opinion.
Patrice O’Neal
Do your job. Do it the best you can. Do it right, becau

Do your job. Do it the best you can. Do it right, because somebody, sometimes your best friend, is waiting for you to screw up so she can take your place.
The great thing about Watergate is, is that the system worked. The American system worked. The press did its job. We did what we were supposed to do.
Carl Bernstein
We will invest in our people, quality education, job opportunity, family, neighborhood, and yes, a thing we call America.
If you’re not willing to work hard, let someone else do it. I’d rather be with someone who does a horrible job, but gives 110% than with someone who does a good job and gives 60%.
You can judge a leader by the size of the problem he tackles. Other people can cope with the waves, it’s his job to watch the tide.
Antony Jay
My father used to have an expression. He’d say, ‘Joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect. It’s about your place in your community.’
I used to let my job define who I was. I like this version of me now, the one that values his job but doesn’t put it at the top of the heap.
I always say I write because I have questions, not because I have answers. It’s true that you begin the conversation – that’s the role of the artist. But it’s not my job to tell us what to do next. I wish I had those tools.
It’s time to get real, folks. Hope and change ain’t working. Hope and change is not a solution. Hope and change is not a job.
I remember when I got to 16, my mum was like, ‘No, now you’ve got to go and get a proper job. We’ve indulged you long enough.’ I don’t think they ever thought I was going to be successful in entertainment at all.
Growing up, my dad was ‘get a real job, don’t go pursuing your dreams, that’s how you become homeless.’ So, do I pick my family or do I pick my own happiness, and how much does my own happiness depend on my family?
Our job is to convince guys that our way is the best way to cross the road. The tactics and training and facilities are important, but I still have to convince you.
My father used to have an expression. He’d say, ‘Joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect. It’s about your place in your community.’
I was always interested – I mean, it’s kind of part of your job – I was always interested in the camera.
When I was in college my girl got me a job at the doctor’s office she was working at. I was a file clerk. No disrespect but I don’t think a man can do that job. It takes so much meticulous and precise file-keeping.
Whatever you may be thinking when you apply for a job today, you can be sure the employer is asking this: Can this person add value every hour, every day – more than a worker in India, a robot or a computer? Can he or she help my company adapt by not only doing the job today but also reinventing the job for tomorrow?
Marcel, no more painting; go get a job.
I was born Maurice Joseph Micklewhite. Imagine signing that autograph! You’d get a broken arm. So I changed my name to Michael Caine after Humphrey Bogart’s ‘The Caine Mutiny,’ which was playing in the theater across from the telephone booth where I learned that I’d gotten my first TV job.
Salman Khan did not help me get movie offers. What rubbish! Will any producer take a risk of millions of rupees at the instance of any person? Everyone knows that the film industry is highly competitive, and one gets a job on one’s talent only and not on any recommendation.
Under neoliberal governance, workers have seen their wages stagnate and their working conditions and job security become more precarious.
My advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want – and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge.
I am a completely self-made person. It’s been a tough journey – I learnt on the job, worked 48 hours without sleeping.
My mission is to make the world happy and cute and to love everyone. I think I’m doing a pretty good job.
People think that at the end of the day a man is the only answer. Actually, a fulfilling job is better for me.
When most people set out to change their lives, they often focus on all the external stuff, like a new job or a new location or new friends or a new romantic prospects and on and on. The reality is that changing your life starts with changing the way you see everything in your life.
I got into retailing because I wanted a real job.
I felt it absolutely essential that we plant the U.N. flag in Rwanda and plant it in a place of significance to show all the political entities, all the signees of the agreement and the Rwandans… that the international community were here and we’re here to stay and we’re going to be doing our job.
Romeo Dallaire
My grades put me in about 5,000th place in all of South Korea. If I kept going down that path, I would’ve become a successful man with a regular job. However, I was positive I’d be number one in the country as a rapper. So I asked my mother whether she wanted to have a son who was a first-place rapper, or a 5,000th-place student.
My first acting job happened by accident when I was really young. I was in fifth grade and my teacher saw an ad in the paper and took me to the audition after school and I got the part.
Modeling is a job. Even my mum doesn’t believe that I do work hard.
Will Generation X and the Millennials do a better job running the world than the boomers have? Let’s hope so.
My first job is big sister and I take that very serious

My first job is big sister and I take that very seriously.
Developing a good work ethic is key. Apply yourself at whatever you do, whether you’re a janitor or taking your first summer job, because that work ethic will be reflected in everything you do in life.
Strong managers who make tough decisions to cut jobs provide the only true job security in today’s world. Weak managers are the problem. Weak managers destroy jobs.
Where do we enroll in Life 101? Where are the classes dealing with the loss of a job, the death of a loved one, the failure of a relationship? Unfortunately, those lessons are mostly learned through trial by fire and the school of hard knocks.
To me, the job of a playwright is to explore and bring to light our lives. You can’t hold back; you have to give in to this. Sometimes, you say things people don’t want to hear.
Ted Lange
I got a job to do on the field.
Everybody who makes any kind of policy needs to substitute teach. But you’ve got to be a real teacher. You can’t just go to a couple of classes with the regular teacher there. It is an incredibly hard job.
You can go to work and actually make someone else’s job less miserable. Use your job to help others.
Our job is not to predict the future. Rather, it’s to suggest all the possible futures – so that society can make informed decisions about where we want to go.
I grew up in a working-class Catholic family in south Louisiana. I went to a state university. I taught literature, wrote a novel that was the novel I wanted to write, and got a couple of good reviews but no real traction. I had no idea how to get a job in TV.
Of all the tough decisions in life, choosing between the job you need and the family you love should not be one of them.
You make the right decision for the long run. You manage for the long run, and you continue to move to higher value. That’s what I think my job is.
My job is making money, helping other people make money. I am spending money, trying to make sure more people get rich, because you cannot spend a lot of money, right? So my job is spending money, helping others. This is a headache.
The thought of being President frightens me and I do not think I want the job.
The most important thing for me is the work, my job, and then to go to my house to be satisfied with my work.
There are times as a parent when you realize that your job is not to be the parent you always imagined you’d be, the parent you always wished you had. Your job is to be the parent your child needs, given the particulars of his or her own life and nature.
By the time I got into Juilliard, I was working at a Target distribution warehouse. It didn’t make anything, it just shipped things, and my job was just to stand there and look at the security codes on the back of trucks and see if they would lock, and check them in.
In Holland we have always viewed Villa as an important club with a tradition of being powerful in Europe when I was younger, so I would be very interested in managing them if the job was offered to me.
The job of the Central Bank is to worry.
Alice Rivlin
Never feel like you have to tick all of the boxes on everything to be able to feel like you can do a job. I have heard it said many times before, and it is so true.
My mom was a photographer and whenever they needed a baby for a modelling job, she’d stick me in front of the camera. That’s how it started.
If you don’t have the right culture, in the difficult moments, the tree is going to shake, so my job is to convince everybody that this is how we are going to live, and if you are going to be part of this organisation it has to be in these terms and in this way.
Mikel Arteta
We don’t go into journalism to be popular. It is our job to seek the truth and put constant pressure on our leaders until we get answers.
People assume actors are born liars, but I’d argue the actor’s job is to tell the truth. And I’ve realised I’m not a good liar.
There are so many talented young actors in the industry. I’m just happy to have a job!
Colton Haynes
I got family members that’s police officers. I don’t got no problem if you a cop, as long as y’all doing y’all job, and y’all not harassing.
I tried hard not to think about the scope or scale of making a record that would be heard by millions and millions of people. I did a pretty good job of tuning that out.
No matter what job you have, you’re in control of your attitude. That, to me, is my biggest focus every day – being on the energy bus.
A lot of people quit looking for work as soon as they find a job.
If you’re going to do a job, do it right. If you’re going to throw a birthday party, make it amazing. If you’re going to do anything, do it awesome.
Covid makes the job harder. But it is what it is and we have to get on with it.
You can't save the world with music. But I can try. I h

You can’t save the world with music. But I can try. I have the same job as Bruce Springsteen. I have to go as far as I can with it.
It’s been a very strange trajectory because I struggled for so many years. I mean, I was doing these videos, I was doing these live shows, I had a lot of fans in New York, the press would write about me, but I couldn’t get a paying job, and so my father and I were really like a team.
Through a long and painful process, I’ve learned that happiness is an inside job – not based on anything or anyone in the outer material world. I’ve become a different and better person – not perfect, but still a work in progress.
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day, but I wasn’t on that particular job.
I have never chosen my next job. I focus on what’s in front of me, and serendipity steps in.
Susan Brooks
The car provided Americans with an enviable standard of living. You could not get a steady job with high wages and health and retirement benefits working on the General Livestock Corporation assembly line putting udders on cows.
Every job I’ve taken, I like to bring in some new faces.
My first job was a McDonald‘s commercial. It made me want to wake up at 4 A.M. to do something I loved. I haven’t been the same since.
On this team, we’re all united in a common goal: to keep my job.
It’s my job as a reporter to not be about the business of making friends or enemies but just be in the tireless pursuit of truth.
I did a terrible job of composing myself. I was a spoiled brat from Long Island who benefitted from the energy of New York.
What we have to do is support business, but also support our workers with job training programs and with reasonable wages.
For us as a firm, not only from a risk mitigation standpoint but also as a point of differentiation, it is incredibly important to get consistency and the very best individuals with the capabilities to do the very best job.
I don’t want any yes-men around me. I want everybody to tell me the truth even if it costs them their job.
I like sports, and swimming is my favorite. Doing physical exercises keeps one fit and healthy and helps one work more efficiently. I think we all need to strike a balance between work and relaxation. This can keep us energetic and help us do our job better.
I saw Angus Young running around in a schoolboy uniform shredding on the guitar and just thought, ‘That looks like a cool job.’
My job isn’t to fix or rescue or to save. It’s to accompany, see people, listen to them.
If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.
Red Adair
I think I am a tough grader, because I feel like it’s my job to teach them to write well. I hope my students say I’m a fair teacher.
If you like to argue just for the sake of being contentious, you shouldn’t pick a job based on this unresolved emotional issue of yours, you should get counseling for it.
A true capitalist doesn’t have a job, because other people and other people’s money work for them.
No matter what job or industry you’re in, life is hard, but we’re all going through a difficult time and the best thing we can do is pick each other up and move on together.
Of course God will forgive me; that’s His job.
My favourite job hands down – and I think I can speak for everyone involved – was ‘Breaking Bad.’
We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It’s our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better.
Whatever your life’s work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.
College is something I’ve always said I wanted to do, but you’re going there to get a piece of paper that says you can get a job, but if I’m already working steadily and doing good work, it makes you question your priorities. Right now, I’m in my own film college: filming a TV show.
Gaten Matarazzo
Second, when comparing private school and public school test scores, it’s like apples and oranges. Public schools have to take everyone, but private schools can be selective. It’s not accurate or fair to compare the job they do.
Dennis Moore
I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: ‘try being rich first’. See if that doesn’t cover most of it. There’s not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job.
Someone taught me this really lovely thing, which is when you’re panicking or thinking, ‘I can’t do this, I can’t do this,’ you just say, ‘Right. Hi, negative thoughts. Stop bothering me. If you just wait there, I’m going to do this job, then I’ll come back and talk to you later.’
The biggest part of my job now is to quickly develop successors, and around the world I am working to develop new business leaders in the company.
In terms of intellectual property, so many of the job c

In terms of intellectual property, so many of the job creators I know are start-ups. In the IP setting, we can meaningfully improve on the status quo, and in so doing, we can help small businesses, large businesses, and those in between.
The woman who can create her own job is the woman who will win fame and fortune.
Amelia Earhart
I’m just an ordinary person who has an extraordinary job.
I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how seriously you approach your whole life.
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.
Ellen Goodman
Think about it: Every educated person is not rich, but almost every education person has a job and a way out of poverty. So education is a fundamental solution to poverty.
Kathleen Blanco
You have to think of a restaurant as a series of impressions. But what makes my job so great is there’s no one answer that’s right for every restaurant.
David Rockwell
I love argument, I love debate. I don’t expect anyone just to sit there and agree with me, that’s not their job.
The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing any.
Fred Astaire
A man’s indebtedness is not virtue; his repayment is. Virtue begins when he dedicates himself actively to the job of gratitude.

My first job at General Motors was as a quality inspector on the assembly line. I was checking fits between hoods and fenders. I had a little scale and clipboard.

On a film set, there are runners who are 19, it’s their first job, but to me they’re as important as anybody else because if they don’t do their job then nobody else can. So I don’t think anybody should be treated disrespectfully or as if they’re of a lower status.
Jim Carter
The first job I booked was on ‘True Blood.’ I played a blood siren.
I think every job I do, I sort of look for the challenge in. I mean, that’s why we do this job. It’s not, you know, obviously not for the money or for the fame, it’s for, I guess finding out more about yourself.

Challenge yourself, grow, blossom, and become who you were meant to be. Don’t ever stay at a job solely out of convenience or comfort. Aim higher, even if that means pursuing another job that’s just one step closer to your ultimate goal.
My dad was a longshoreman in the Port of Miami. Tough job. I worked down there in the summer once. One day. Never again. My dad was a no-nonsense guy. As a kid, I hated his rules, but as a man, I understand what he was teaching. He taught me you have to work hard for everything you get.

Natasha Bedingfield
I’m a mother myself, and sometimes mothers get a bad rap just because they’ve tried to do their job. Some people have more of a knack for it than others do, but almost all of it falls to, ‘My mother’s suffocating me.’ Whatever.
Annie Potts
‘Hard-working’ is what gets the job done. You just see that year after year. The students who thrive are not necessarily the ones who come in with the perfect scores. It’s the ones who love what they’re doing and go at it vigorously.
I hate politics. It’s slimy. Any job where people pander for votes, I don’t like. The country has gotten so partisan that if you’re not on my side, you’re the enemy. The only thing I ever try to support is a third party, like Unity08. We need more parties and more choice.
It’s the coach’s job to pick the system, we just try and implement it as best as we can.

On Friday, I would come back, and then on Sunday evening I would go back to the Residence Inn.

Everybody has a job to do. There are people in Iraq on

Everybody has a job to do. There are people in Iraq on both sides of this war who do what they do for religious reasons, and they feel with God on their side. Some people are good at annihilating people. Maybe that’s their gift.
The test for whether or not you can hold a job should not be the arrangement of your chromosomes.

I used to bodyguard for Muhammad Ali, Leon Spinks, Sugar Ray Leonard.

I did my job, and I was courteous – a no-nonsense guy.
The childhood games ended for me when I was 14 and I finished school. I had to find a job, not an easy thing in those days.

Happiness is an inside job.
William Arthur Ward

I think my grandmother saw my potential first. When I was young, I told her, ‘I think I should get a job.’ She said, ‘No, just keep boxing.’
I think there is no greater job anybody can have than having been a prosecutor.
Merrick Garland
Quite frankly, I think if a man or a woman likes their American job, wherever they were born, they should be able to keep that job. We need a clear path to citizenship for workers who are already here and a fair and efficient on-ramp for those who want to come here.

I’m just an ordinary person who has an extraordinary job.
Every black American is bilingual. All of them. We speak street vernacular and we speak ‘job interview.’
