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

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."
