Industry Quotes

"There are but two ways of paying debt: Increase of industry in raising income, increase of thrift in laying out."
Thomas Carlyle

"A man who gives his children habits of industry provides for them better than by giving them a fortune."
Richard Whately

"People who have attained things worth having in this world have worked while others have idled, have persevered while others gave up in despair, and have practiced early in life the valuable habits of self-denial, industry, and singleness of purpose. As a result, they enjoy in later life the success often erroneously attributed to good luck."
Grenville Kleiser

"Industry, perseverance, and frugality make fortune yield."
Benjamin Franklin

"There is no genius in life like the genius of energy and industry."
Don G Mitchell

"The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few is to be found in their industry, application, and perseverance under the prompting of a brave, determined spirit."
Mark Twain

"Wisdom and understanding can only become the possession of individual men by travelling the old road of observation, attention, perseverance, and industry."
Mark Twain

"The Universe is one great kindergarten for man. Everything that exists has brought with it its own peculiar lesson. The mountain teaches stability and grandeur; the ocean immensity and change. Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes, -- every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man. Even the bee and ant have brought their little lessons of industry and economy."
Orison Swett Marden

"Want is the mother of industry."

Work Hard. Be Nice.: How Two Inspired Teachers Created the Most Promising Schools in America
by Jay MathewsSearch for Jay Mathews
$0.01 new/used

When Mike Feinberg and Dave Levin signed up for Teach for America right after college and found themselves utter failures in the classroom, they vowed to remake themselves into superior educators. They did that?and more. In their early twenties, by sheer force of talent and determination never to take no for an answer, they created a wildly successful fifth-grade experience that would grow into the Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP), which today includes sixty-six schools in nineteen states and the District of Columbia.

KIPP schools incorporate what Feinberg and Levin learned from America's best, most charismatic teachers: lessons need to be lively; school days need to be longer (the KIPP day is nine and a half hours); the completion of homework has to be sacrosanct (KIPP teachers are available by telephone day and night). Chants, songs, and slogans such as "Work hard, be nice" energize the program. Illuminating the ups and downs of the KIPP founders and their students, Mathews gives us something quite rare: a hopeful book about education.

The Hard Work Lie
by Drew JonesSearch for Drew Jones

You have been taught your whole life that hard work is the key to success?that you can achieve anything as long as you work hard. But what if it is a lie?what if hard work is not the key to success that you?ve been taught it is? What if hard work is sabotaging the very success you are seeking? Millions of people work hard every day, but only a very small percentage of these people are what one would consider successful. If hard work is indeed the key to success, why is this so? Why is it that most of the wealth and power in this world is concentrated in the hands of a few? Certainly, these individuals do not have the monopoly on hard work. And if hard work is not the key to success, what would motivate people to propagate this falsehood? ?The Hard Work Lie? examines these questions and seeks to expose what the author believes is the long-held myth that hard work is the ultimate key to success?the myth that keeps people running in the hard work hamster wheel even though they are going nowhere. The final chapters of the book also reveal truths?as opposed to mistruths?that the author has found to be fundamental to the achievement of success.

WORK HARD FOR THE KIMS! An introduction to North Korean history, ideology, and culture through the country's propaganda posters
by Scott FisherSearch for Scott Fisher

The goal of this brief book is to use North Korea?s unique, occasionally beautiful, often threatening propaganda posters to introduce and highlight the country?s history, ideology, and culture. This is not an art critique or an examination of color and painting - the goal is to provoke thought and conversation about one of the world?s most well-known but least understood countries.

As the book unfolds, we?ll see that Pyongyang?s near total control of its domestic information environment is built around four main propaganda themes: the Kim family leadership, the bounty and joy offered by life in the North, unification with the South, and a combination of anti-Americanism with military-focused ethno-nationalism. These four themes reveal what is most important to the North?s rulers, while the censorship of outside narratives competing against Pyongyang? official worldview reveals a vulnerability for outside policymakers anxious to find a new tool for affecting change in the North.

Hard Work: Remaking the American Labor Movement
by Rick Fantasia, Kim Voss
$2.32 new/used

This concise overview of the labor movement in the United States focuses on why American workers have failed to develop the powerful unions that exist in other industrialized countries. Packed with valuable analysis and information, Hard Work explores historical perspectives, examines social and political policies, and brings us inside today's unions, providing an excellent introduction to labor in America.

Hard Work begins with a comparison of the very different conditions that prevail for labor in the United States and in Europe. What emerges is a picture of an American labor movement forced to operate on terrain shaped by powerful corporations, a weak state, and an inhospitable judicial system. What also emerges is a picture of an American worker that has virtually disappeared from the American social imagination. Recently, however, the authors find that a new kind of unionism?one that more closely resembles a social movement?has begun to develop from the shell of the old labor movement. Looking at the cities of Los Angeles and Las Vegas they point to new practices that are being developed by innovative unions to fight corporate domination, practices that may well signal a revival of unionism and the emergence of a new social imagination in the United States.

Work Hard, Study...and Keep Out of Politics! Adventures and Lessons from an Unexpected Public Life
by James Baker IIISearch for James Baker III
$0.01 new/used

A revelatory memoir from one of the great political minds of our time.

The real inside story of why Gerald Ford did not ask Ronald Reagan to be his running mate in 1976-and why Reagan did not pick Ford in 1980; the battle over Florida 2000; the aborted White House job switch that inadvertently opened the door to the Iran-Contra scandal; the Bush campaign's wish that Dan Quayle would offer to resign from the ticket in 1992; the White House turmoil in the dark days following the Reagan assassination attempt; and a great deal more . . .

White House Chief of Staff (twice), Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, and campaign chairman for three different candidates in five successive presidential campaigns-few people have lived and breathed politics as deeply as James Baker. Now, with candor and Texas-style storytelling, and not a few surprises, he takes us into his thirty-five years behind the scenes.

None of it was planned. His grandfather, the "Captain," drilled this advice into him: "Work hard, study . . . and keep out of politics!" Then a personal tragedy changed the life of a forty-year-old Texas Democratic lawyer and he never looked back. From campaign horsetrading, which sometimes got rough ("Politics ain't beanbag," says Baker), to the inner councils of the Reagan and Bush administrations to the controversies of today, Baker offers frank talk and spellbinding narratives, along with personal appraisals of six presidents and a constellation of others. It was a long, unexpected journey from Houston, Texas, to Washington, D.C.-and you'll want to travel it with him.
