Food for thought with Labor Day and the start of the school year upon us.

All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today. — Pope Paul VI

Winners embrace hard work. They love the discipline of it, the trade-off they’re making to win. Losers, on the other hand, see it as punishment. And that’s the difference. — Lou Holtz

The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work. — Thomas Edison

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. — Colin Powell

Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. — Stephen King

Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work — and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t. — Lucille Ball

Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.

— Peter Drucker

Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work. — Horace

What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose. — Margaret Thatcher

The only method by which people can be supported is out of the effort of those who are earning their own way. We must not create a deterrent to hard work. — Robert Taft
