The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behavior as one of two things: either love, or a call for love.
Even sleepers are workers and collaborators on what goes on in the universe.
Why do social workers use five-syllable words when dealing with juvenile delinquents?
Executives owe it to the organization and to their fellow workers not to tolerate nonperforming individuals in important jobs.
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.
The real people of genius were resolute workers not idle dreamers.
Out of labor's struggle in Arizona came better conditions for the workers, who must everywhere, at all times, under advantage and disadvantage work out their own salvation.
The worker of the world has nothing to lose, but their chains, workers of the world unite.
The more the division of labor and the application of machinery extend, the more does competition extend among the workers, the more do their wages shrink together.
At the current $5.15 an hour, the federal minimum wage has become a poverty wage. A full-time worker with one child lives below the official poverty line.
I see journalists as the manual workers, the laborers of the word.
Journalism can only be literature when it is passionate.
The judges of normality are present everywhere.
We are in the society of the teacher-judge, the doctor-judge, the educator-judge, the social worker -judge.
Some day the workers will take possession of your city hall, and when we do, no child will be sacrificed on the altar of profit!

I think what you're seeing is a profound recognition on the part of the American people that gays and lesbians and transgender persons are our brothers, our sisters, our children, our cousins, our friends, our co-workers, and that they've got to be treated like every other American.

I will never apologize for standing up for my fellow Teamsters and all American workers.
We need people who can actually do things. We have too many bosses and too few workers.
A laborer no longer makes whole articles.
He receives raw materials, puts his touch on them, and passes them to another worker in the series. When the articles are quite finished they are carried out of sight by currents of commercial exchange. These currents are untraceable.

We want only loyal workers who are grateful from the bottom of their hearts for the bread which we let them earn.
Workers insist that they are not disgruntled. They are very gruntled.
Doing for people what they can and ought to do for themselves is a dangerous experiment. In the last analysis the welfare of the workers depends upon their own initiative. Whatever is done under the guise of philanthropy or social morality which in any way lessens initiative is the greatest crime that can be committed against the toilers. Let social busy-bodies and professional public morals experts in their fads reflect upon the perils they rashly invite under this pretense of social welfare.
There may be here and there a worker who for certain reasons unexplainable to us does not join a union of labor. That is his right. It is his legal right, no matter how morally wrong he may be. It is his legal right, and no one can or dare question his exercise of that legal right.
I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
As soon as I suspect a fine effect is being achieved by accident I lose interest. I am not interested...in unskilled labor. ...The scientific actor is an even worker. Any one may achieve on some rare occasion an outburst of genuine feeling, a gesture of imperishable beauty, a ringing accent of truth; but your scientific actor knows how he did it. He can repeat it again and again and again. He can be depended on.
I'm an actor. And I guess I've done so many movies I've achieved some high visibility. But a star? I guess I still think of myself as kind of a worker ant.
