Labor Day gives us an opportunity to honor all the men and women who contribute to the nation’s growth and prosperity, and to take time to consider the value and dignity that our work provides — whether are are busy stay-at-home parents or out there in the paid work force.
Whether you love your job or not, these famous men and women who’ve had successful sporting, religious, political, or cultural lives, provide us with a timely reminder as to why we get up each morning and face the daily grind. When you may need a little motivation or some encouragement to spread your wings, these 18 quotes will inspire you to get out there and face your day with a little skip in your step.
