quote by Desmond Tutu

God places us in the world as his fellow workers-agents of transfiguration. We work with God so that injustice is transfigured into justice, so there will be more compassion and caring, that there will be more laughter and joy, that there will be more togetherness in God's world.

— Desmond Tutu

Unexpected Fellow Workers quotations

Fellow workers quote The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behavior as one of two things:

The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behavior as one of two things: either love, or a call for love.

Fellow workers and peasants, this is the socialist and democratic revolution of the working people, with the working people, and for the working people. And for this revolution of the working people, by the working people, and for the working people we are prepared to give our lives.

I am happy because I want nothing from anyone.

I do not care for money. Decorations, titles or distinctions mean nothing to me. I do not crave praise. The only thing that gives me pleasure, apart from my work, my violin and my sailboat, is the appreciation of my fellow workers.

Fellow workers quote Happiness is having a co-worker who becomes a friend.

Happiness is having a co-worker who becomes a friend.

People do not follow uncommitted leaders.

Commitment can be displayed in a full range of matters to include the work hours you choose to maintain, how you work to improve your abilities, or what you do for your fellow workers at personal sacrifice.

Executives owe it to the organization and to their fellow workers not to tolerate nonperforming individuals in important jobs.

You should accordingly exercise your mind to remember your friends, relatives, and fellow-workers to determine if they are in need. As you remember each one so shall you in turn intercede for them. If in interceding on their behalf your spirit remains cold and dry, then you know you are not to pray for them.

Fellow workers quote The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behavior as one of two things:

The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behavior as one of two things: either love, or a call for love.

I will never apologize for standing up for my fellow Teamsters and all American workers.

Prayer may seem at first like disengagement, a reflective time to consider God's point of view. But that vantage presses us back to accomplish God's will, the work of the kingdom. We are God's fellow workers, and as such we turn to prayer to equip us for the partnership.

I offered up a special prayer, a prayer which came with tears and anguish, that some way would open up for me to use what talents I possessed for my fellow workers, for the poor.

Fellow workers quote Governments don't want a population capable of critical thinkng. They want obedi

Governments don't want a population capable of critical thinkng. They want obedient workers, people just smart enough to run the machines and just dumb enough to passively accept their situation.

You and I are created for transcendence, laughter, caring.

God deliberately did not make the world perfect, for God is looking for you and me to be fellow workers with God.

It is much easier to do something than to trust in God.

I feel strongly about showing up and being prepared and not taking the opportunity for granted and being conscientious about my fellow co-workers.

Fellow workers quote There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is be

There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.

There is simply no dignified way for a woman to live alone.

Oh, she can get along financially perhaps (though not nearly as well as a man), but emotionally she is never left in peace. Her friends, her family, her fellow workers never let her forget that her husbandlessness, her childlessness -- her selfishness, in short -- is a reproach to the American way of life.

There's no need to be fearful when another person succeeds.

In fact, joining forces and supporting fellow teachers (or co-workers) you believe in is one of the most empowering moves you can make.

Mind is the great lever of all things;

human thought is the process by which human ends are ultimately answered; and the diffusion of knowledge, so astonishing in the last half-century, has rendered innumerable minds, variously gifted by nature, competent to be competitors or fellow-workers on the theatre of intellectual operation.

... a worker was seldom so much annoyed by what he got as by what he got in relation to his fellow workers.

the point of educating instead of blaming seems to me very important.

For nothing stultifies one more than being blamed. Moreover, if the question is, who is to blame?, perhaps each will want to place the blame on someone else, or on the other hand, someone may try to shield his fellow-worker. In either case the attempt is to hide the error and if this is done the error cannot be corrected.

Here's another way of putting it. Roosevelt wants recovery to start at the bottom. In other words, by a system of high taxes, he wants business to help the little fellow to get started and get some work, and then pay business back by buying things when he's at work. Business says, 'Let everybody alone. Let business alone, and quit monkeying with us, and we'll get everything going for you, and if we prosper, naturally the worker will prosper.'

Gay brothers and sisters... You must come out. Come out to your relatives... come out to your friends... Come out to your neighbors... to your fellow workers... to the people who work where you eat and shop... break down the myths, destroy the lies and distortions. For your sake. For their sake. For the sake of the youngsters who are becoming scared.

Today, I am wondering what would have happened to me by now, if, fifty years ago, some fluent talker had converted me to the theory of the eight-hour day and convinced me that it was not fair to my fellow-workers to put forth my best efforts in my work? I am glad that the eight-hour day had not been invented when I was a young man. If my life had been made up of eight-hour days, I don't believe I could have accomplished a great deal.

No matter what anyone may say about making the rich and the corporations pay the taxes, in the end they come out of the people who toil. It is your fellow workers who are ordered to work for the Government, every time an appropriation bill is passed. The people pay the expense of government, often many times over, in the increased cost of living. I want taxes to be less, that the people may have more.

In a community of human beings working together, the well-being of the community will be the greater, the less the individual claims for himself the proceeds of the work he has himself done; i.e., the more of these proceeds he makes over to his fellow workers, and the more his own requirements are satisfied, not out of his own work done, but out of work done by the others.
