Labor Day 2022 Quotes

Quote!LABOR DAY 2022

There have been a LOT of things said about the “labor” in Labor Day.

Which is why there are a LOT of Labor (Day) quotes.

Well, so there are NOT many quotes SPECIFICALLY about the holiday of LABOR DAY–BUT, there are a LOT of quotes about what LABOR DAY is supposedly about: work and labor.

So, to mark the occasion of LABOR DAY 2022, here are TEN quotes about labor and work.

“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”
Aristotle

“Without labor nothing prospers.”
Sophocles

“There is joy in work. There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.”
Henry Ford

“The highest compliment that you can pay me is to say that I work hard every day, that I never dog it.
Wayne Gretzky

“No person who is enthusiastic about his work has anything to fear from life.”
Samuel Goldwyn

“All wealth is the product of labor.”
John Locke

“To find joy in work is to find the fountain of youth.”
Pearl Buck

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
Thomas Edison

“Nothing ever comes to one that is worth having except as a result of hard work.”
Booker T. Washington

“I learned the value of hard work by working hard.”
Margaret Mead

TEN quotes for Labor Day 2022…

Very little on Labor Day itself BUT a LOT on work and labor.

Guess that’s the way of this world…

DOES the reader celebrate LABOR DAY for all of its values–OR, does the reader celebrate LABOR DAY because it’s a day off work and a holiday?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Like Most Modern Media, Movie Quotes Are A Commentary on a Life Not Lived

LIFE

EVERYONE who has lived has watched AT LEAST one movie.

And practically EVERY movie has AT LEAST one quotable line in it.

So, it was that it was, while perusing UNUSUAL or MEMORABLE movie quotes, that one DISCOVERED the fake, manufactured quality of both 1) movie quotes; and, 2) modern life.

Like most modern lives, movie quotes are little commentaries on a life not lived ANYWHERE but on the screen.

And so, after wading through DOZENS of lists of odd movie quotes, the following were selected because they are–IN SOME WAY–as phony as modern life.

There are several duties the reader may be expected to perform while reading such lists.

1) How many quotes was the reader familiar with that made this list?

2) How many–does the reader agree–reflect the utter falseness of modern life?

3) How many appropriate quotes does the reader feel were NOT MENTIONED?

THE TOP TEN QUOTES

1 “Ogres are like onions.”
Shrek

2 “You’ve got red on you.”
Shaun of the Dead

3 “I am Groot.
Guardians of the Galaxy

4 “This is Sparta!
300

5 “I am gonna kill Bill.
Kill Bill Volume 2

6 “You gonna eat your tots?
Napoleon Dynamite

7 “Do you know what happens to a toad when its struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else.
X-men

8 “With great power come great responsibility.”
Spider-Man

9 “The wrong kid died.”
Walk Hard: the Dewey Cox Story

10 “Honey? Where’s my super-suit?
The Incredibles

OTHER QUOTES WHICH ALMOST MADE THE LIST

“Rock stars have kidnapped my son!”
Almost Famous

Is this your king?
Black Panther

You shall not pass!
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Are you not entertained?
Gladiator

I’m finished.
There will be Blood

As per the title, each one of these quotes highlights the falseness of the life portrayed in the movie it came from; the story which the movie struggles to present to the movie-goer as part of REAL–not manufactured or contrived–life.

(What does the reader think of the ALMOST-title which was the ‘working’ title of this piece for a LONG TIME: Memorable but Obscure?)

[The title of this piece reflected the ORIGINAL intent of the piece: as a comment on the way movies present their stories AS IF they were true; i.e., part of someone’s REAL LIFE.  Instead, we got sidetracked by some quotes from those movies.]

DOES the reader watch a lot of movies?

WHY?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Twenty Quotes About Liars

lie Pinocchio

IF one studied what was said about liars and the stories they tell, one would come to the conclusion that 1- MANY, MANY, MANY men and women who lie for a living (acting or work on another public stage) claim they are poor liars; 2- to be a successful liar, one must possess a good memory; and, 3- most people don’t seem to like liars much.

Therefore, we present–for the reader’s amusement and/or edification–20 quotes by those who are FAMOUS (or INFAMOUS) about liars and lying.

Since most of the quoted words come from the worldly, these thoughts might be characterized as being what the WORLD says about liars.

Some of the following quotes DO provide less-promoted insights into the practice of lying.

[Included is ONE bonus Quote for a total of 21 quotes.]

“A liar should have a good memory.”

“I’m an algebra liar. I figure two good lies make a positive.”
Tim Allen

“A liar begins with making falsehood appear like truth, and ends with making truth itself appear like falsehood.”
William Shenstone

“When I was a little boy, they called me a liar, but now that I am grown up, they call me a writer.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer

“The only person who is a worse liar than a faith healer is his patient.”
— Abraham Lincoln

“Do not consider it proof just because it is written in books, for a liar who will deceive with his tongue will not hesitate to do the same with his pen.”
Maimonides

Lewis Black

“The liar’s punishment is not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe anyone else.”

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Ten Common Sayings Which the World Borrowed from the Bible

Bible

Once upon a time, a young high school English Literature student surveyed the many commons phrases which passed into English from the WRITINGS of WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.

He was shocked and SURPRISED at how many there were.

A few years later, a young college student studied the MANY common phrases which originated in God’s Word (King James Version of the Bible).

He was even more amazed at how many there were–actually, at how many MORE there were.

And so, here are a few of the MANY commons sayings the world has borrowed from the Bible.

1- A WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
–Matthew 7:15

2- THE POWERS THAT BE

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.”
–Romans 13:1

3- AT WIT’S END

“They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end.”
–Psalm 107:27

4- EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY

“And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.”
–Luke 12:19

5- BY THE SKIN OF MY TEETH

“My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth. “
–Job 19:20

6- FALL BY THE WAYSIDE

“A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.”
–Luke 8:5

7- A LAND OF MILK AND HONEY

And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
–Exodus 3:8

8- THE WRITING ON THE WALL

“They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone. In the same hour came forth fingers of a man’s hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king’s palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king’s countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another. “
–Daniel 5:4-6

9- A FLY IN THE OINTMENT

“Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.”
–Ecclesiastes 10:1

10- THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND

“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
–Matthew 15:14

There are TEN listed here.

There are many more–which means that–God willing–another article will be needed to include them all (or at least, MOST of them).

Odd that a book which the vast majority of the world does NOT believe would supply so many commonly-used phrases?

WAS the reader aware of the number of commonly-used phrases which started out as phrases in the Bible?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

The Way of the World QUOTES

The World

So many lazy authors, songwriters and media spinmeisters try to pass off their latest offering as nothing more than the happenstance of life.

OR, “the way of the world.

For the reader, these little scribblings often mean that an insight–no matter how large or how small–has been offered into how the world REALLY works.

As opposed to how the world works, according to the stories which those who believe they control the world offer the great unwashed.

And so, we offer the reader 30 quotes about the ‘way of the world’ according to the world’s favorites.

These are divided into TWO separate groups: the first group contains 15 little insights into how the world REALLY functions; the second group contains 15 little pieces of worldly advice.

(A BONUS QUOTE is also included: for a grand total of 16 in EACH section.)

—–

“The way to make money is to buy when blood is running in the streets.”
John D. Rockefeller

“You cannot spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt.”
Daniel Hannan

“It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”
Joseph Stalin

“This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper.”
T. S. Eliot

“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
Arundhati Roy

“There is no public opinion. There is only published opinion.”
Winston Churchill

“More history is made by secret handshakes than by battles, bills and proclamations.”
John Barth

“It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”
Thomas Sowell

“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

“When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn’t work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.”
Emo Philips

(How many nonbelievers have gambled their entire eternity on this one?)

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”
Alan Kay

“Capitalism is an organized system to guarantee that greed becomes the primary force of our economic system and allows the few at the top to get very wealthy and has the rest of us riding around thinking we can be that way, too – if we just work hard enough, sell enough Tupperware and Amway products, we can get a pink Cadillac.”
Michael Moore

“Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today.”
Robert McAfee Brown

“The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.”
Vladimir Lenin

“The only way to predict the future is to have power to shape the future.”
Eric Hoffer

BONUS QUOTE

“The best way to keep a prisoner from escaping is to make sure he never knows he’s in prison.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky

The second grouping of quotes is a section of worldly men and women who offer advice on how to succeed in this world.

Just because these people are firmly in this world does NOT mean that their advice is often correct: it isn’t.

Therefore, much of what follows are also little snippets of propaganda, offered to assist in misleading any who fall for it.

“Suicide is man’s way of telling God, ‘You can’t fire me – I quit.’”
Bill Maher

(Only a committed nonbeliever would erroneously believe that God ‘fires’ man.)

“There’s a natural law of karma that vindictive people, who go out of their way to hurt others, will end up broke and alone.”
Sylvester Stallone

“You have to believe in yourself, challenge yourself, and push yourself until the very end; that’s the only way you’ll succeed.”
G-Dragon

“The way we experience the world around us is a direct reflection of the world within us.”
Gabrielle Bernstein

“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.”
Walter Hagen

“God made me the way I am, and I accept myself. I am who I am, and I’m proud of myself.
Caster Semenya

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
Albert Camus

“You can look in the mirror and find a million things wrong with yourself. Or you can look in the mirror and think, ‘I feel good, I have my health, and I’m so blessed.’ That’s the way I choose to look at it.”
Isla Fisher

“Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that’s precise, predictive and reliable – a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional.”
Brian Greene

“Coronavirus can happen to anyone, so, it’s really important to maintain good health overall. That way, when it hits you, you have an immune system that is strong enough to fight the virus.”
Sara Khan

“Beer makes you feel the way you ought to feel without beer.”
Henry Lawson

“The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but that’s the way to bet.”
Damon Runyon

“Hypocrisy is the ultimate power move. It is a way of demonstrating that one plays by a different set of rules from the ones adhered to by common people.”
Michael Shellenberger

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

 “I think the healthy way to live is to make friends with the beast inside oneself, and that means not the beast but the shadow. The dark side of one’s nature. Have fun with it and you know, is to accept everything about ourselves.”
Anthony Hopkins

BONUS QUOTE

“If you’re healthy, if you don’t get sick much, if you don’t go to the doctor much or use your health insurance much, you are a genetic lottery winner. It has nothing to do with the way you live, nothing to do with doing the right things. It’s just sheer luck, and you are gonna pay for that.”
Rush Limbaugh

DOES the reader believe the world works the way he is told it work?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

Words Have Meaning

words

A phrase which is popular with a certain group of people these days goes something like this.

“Words have meaning.”

IN FACT, ex-Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said, “Words have meaning. And their meaning doesn’t change.”

Which is a useful thing to say for someone who is a Supreme Court Justice.

BUT, which does NOT make what has been said TRUE.

11 Words With Meanings That Have Changed Drastically Over Time

[The author of the linked piece would have readers believe that Number Seven on the list–“Naughty“–once meant something quite different than what the word means today.  YET, God’s Word employs “naughty” in a manner which is CLEARLY understood like today’s word.

“A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.”
–Proverbs 6:12

Are there OTHER words on the list which also have bogus or dubious stories attached to them?]

A more USEFUL quote might be, “Words mean whatever we say they mean.”

And this quote has most likely been used by EVERY person who exercises ANY amount of power over his fellows, great or small.

This last phrase is ALSO useful for all of those who write the wonderfully entertaining  stories which so many of deceived men believe.

And, it is suspected, it is to this last (largely unspoken) quote which the “Words have meaning” proponents are directing their arguments toward.

Which brings to mind another quote: this final one by American humorist, Mark Twain.  It is certainly a appropriate quote for the deception-filled end times.

“What gets us into trouble is not what we don’t know. It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.”
Mark Twain

DOES the reader believe all of the marvelous stories he has been told his whole life?

WHAT does the reader believe?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
