Ernie Zelinski emailed me a copy of his free e-book “1001 best things ever said about work” and I gotta say that that’s quite the quote collection.
It includes nuggets like:
Guidelines for Bureaucrats:
1. When in charge, ponder.
2. When in trouble, delegate.
3. When in doubt, mumble.
— James H. Boren
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
— Thomas Edison
When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President: I’m beginning to believe it.
— Clarence Darrow
Thank you Ernie for sending me this! I am quite the quote-hound myself, as you can see here.
You can download Ernie’s ebook of quotes here (pdf) and you can find Ernie’s other books here, including his intriguingly titled book “The joy of not working”.

Nice quotes there. Thanks for sharing.
“A clever person solves a problem.
A wise person avoids it.”
One of the better quotes out there in regards to work (or anything else).
