I have no Napoleonic dream. I'm just hard-working and pragmatic.
Abramovich - Passions
It is hope in this wider sense which enabled my father to build, from scratch,
one of India's largest modern enterprises. His was an undertaking powered by hard
work, initiative, self-belief but, above all else, the capacity, as he would often
say, "to dream with your eyes wide open".
Ambani - Ambition
Someone once told me: 'Luck is when opportunity meets preparation'. And that's
what I really feel with my music. I've worked really, really hard on it. It was
like, 'this is really what I want to do.. what do I have to do to make it work?'
Baxter - Luck
- Hard Work
The modelling was fun but I don't see it the same as music, because with
modelling, I was just kind of lucky, I just fell into it. I got discovered at
a train station when I'd just turned 15, I was working full-time by 16, moved
overseas and then just kept at it and made it a life. Whereas with my music, I've
really struggled through and worked hard, learnt how to write and I've kept developing

have never watched property programmes. I watch Property Ladder, because I feel
its very rude for a director to work very hard on a programme and you cant

on screen. Its quite unpleasant seeing myself up there.

I was slightly cynical of the American mentality
before I came over here, but now I preach
it. Here, no one's going to tear you down
if you buy yourself a $300,000 car. They're
likely to say: "Well, you probably
worked hard for it. Good luck to you."
Cowell - Cynical
Work - Luck
My life honestly isn't as weird as people
think it is. I work longer hours, maybe
I have a bit more money, but fundamentally,
I'm not really that different.
Cowell - Hard

almost any prejudice and open almost any door.
H. Johnson - Work
I would tell young people to start where they are with what they have and
that the secret of a big success is starting with a small success and dreaming
bigger and bigger dreams, I would tell them also that a young Black woman or a
young Black man can't dream too much today or dare too much if he or she works
hard, perseveres and dedicates themselves to excellence.
H. Johnson - Motivational
I really want people to know that Ive
worked hard, very hard, to get to where
I am today.. this didnt just happen
overnight. I started in business over 25
years ago and have found a way to build
on what Ive learned through every
partnership and opportunity.
Johnson - Hard
Work - Patience
The right to private property meant at the
same time the right and duty to be personally
concerned about your own well-being, to
be personally concerned about your family's
income, to be personally concerned about
your future. This is hard work.
Khodorkovsky - Money

home. I became very driven about work and
about my career.
Klein - Business
Work - Career
The key to longevity is to keep doing what
you do better than anyone else. We work
real hard at that. It's about getting your
message out to the consumer. It's about
getting their trust, but also getting them
excited, again and again. My clothes.. the
clothes we make for the runway.. aren't
concepts. They go into stores. Our stores.
Thankfully, we have lots of them.
Lauren - Products
Work - Trust

that whether we win or lose, we have applied
the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

Work - Success
I firmly believe that any man's finest hour,
the greatest fulfillment of all that he
holds dear, is the moment when he has worked
his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted
on the field of battle-victorious.
Lombardi - Hard
Work - Success
They talk about how hard coaches work. They work 18, 20 hours a day. They
sleep on a couch. They don't come home. You know, that's not the hard job. The
hard job is a coach's wife, believe me. The job of the coach's wife, she has to
be mother, father, driver, doctor, nurse, coach, everything, because the coach
is out there working.
Madden - Jobs

one day work a 40-hour week.

dedicate yourself to what you are doing
and setting out to achieve.

at whatever I did. I didn't want to be the
number one golfer in the world. I just wanted
to be as good as I could be. I work hard,
I push myself hard, and I probably even
expect too much of myself.
Norman - Work
When youre really trying to make serious
change, you dont want people to get
caught up in emotion because change isnt
emotion. Because change isn't emotion. Its
real work and organization and strategy..
thats just the truth of it. I mean,
you pull people in with inspiration, but
then you have to roll up your sleeves and
youve got to make sacrifices and you
have got to have structure.
Obama - Change
Work - Strategy
If the boss is a jerk, get over it. First
of all, dont you think theres
a good chance that your bosss boss
knows whats going on? If so, just
keep your head down and do the work. Usually,

excellent results, someone in the company
is going to take notice. Either you will
get promoted or your jerky boss will get
the heave-ho. It happens all the time.

didn't enjoy life.

on a day that I don't write.

insult around: I am proud to say that I work like a clerk.

sometimes come hard. The gold that has the greatest value lies deepest in the
earth, as do the diamonds.
Vincent Peale - Life
When I lose my marbles which is never, when
I lose my energy, I travel the world today
for Viacom, China, Turkey,
Dubai, Kuwait. When that happens, I'll know
enough to retire, but that's never gonna
happen. I'm here for forever.

- Hard Work

its very hard work with no weekends, but I would still do it.
Sabanci - Work
I made a resolve then that I was going to
amount to something if I could. And no hours,
nor amount of labor, nor amount of money
would deter me from giving the best that
there was in me. And I have done that ever
since, and I win by it. I know.
Work - Determination
The conditions of suffering that exist today
in our impoverished communities are not
acceptable. The reflection of those conditions
are less concerning to me. And I work everyday

to work harder.
Smith - Work
hire me, you hire a nut who is going to work 24 hours a day for you and never,
ever burn his audience.
Stern - Employee
The only way of making money is for effort. The only time I've ever lost money
is when I've purposely said, "I'm doing this to make money." And I've
actually on three occasions lost significant sums. I have made wealth when I've
actually made a contribution to something, when I've done something I thought
I could do better than somebody else or have done something better than somebody
else does it.
Stokes - Losing
The scientific man does not aim at an immediate
result. He does not expect that his advanced
ideas will be readily taken up. His work
is like that of the planter.. for the future.
His duty is to lay the foundation for those
who are to come, and point the way. He lives
and labors and hopes.
Tesla - Science
I am credited with being one of the hardest
workers and perhaps I am, if thought is
the equivalent of labour, for I have devoted
to it almost all of my waking hours. But
if work is interpreted to be a definite
performance in a specified time according
to a rigid rule, then I may be the worst
of idlers. Every effort under compulsion
demands a sacrifice of life-energy. I never
paid such a price. On the contrary, I have
thrived on my thoughts.
Tesla - Hard
Work - Thinking
My belief is firm in a law of compensation.
The true rewards are ever in proportion
to the labor and sacrifices made. This is
one of the reasons why I feel certain that
of all my inventions, the Magnifying Transmitter
will prove most important and valuable to
future generations. I am prompted to this
prediction not so much by thoughts of the
commercial and industrial revolution which
it will surely bring about, but of the humanitarian
consequences of the many achievements it
makes possible. Considerations of mere utility
weigh little in the balance against the
higher benefits of civilization.
Tesla - Hard
Work - Industry
I wish to suggest that a man may be very
industrious, and yet not spend his time
well. There is no more fatal blunderer than
he who consumes the greater part of his
life getting his living. All great enterprises
are self-supporting. The poet, for instance,
must sustain his body by his poetry, as
a steam planing-mill feeds its boilers with
the shavings it makes. You must get your
living by loving.
David Thoreau - Life
Work - Love
You have to put in many, many, many tiny
efforts that nobody sees or appreciates
before you achieve anything worthwhile.
Tracy - Goals
We are perfectionists. We are hungry to
work all the time. We are entertained by
every aspect of business and we never want
to stop working.
Welch - Hard
It's tough to say, exactly, what things
will look like in three to five years, but
there's a lot of work to do in just moving
along the path that we've already set out.
Zuckerberg - Facebook
Work - Growth
