Famous quotes containing the words work and/or life:

    Women are in bondage; their clothes are a great hindrance to their engaging in any business which will make them pecuniarily independent, and since the soul of womanhood never can be queenly and noble so long as it must beg bread for its body, is it not better, even at the expense of a vast deal of annoyance, that they whose lives deserve respect and are greater than their garments should give an example by which woman may more easily work out her own emancipation?
    Lucy Stone (1818–1893)

    O life unlike to ours!
    Who fluctuate idly without term or scope,
    Of whom each strives, nor knows for what he strives,
    And each half lives a hundred different lives;
    Who wait like thee, but not, like thee, in hope.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)
