Success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.
For myself, I would much prefer to be stuck with Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament, than stuck with George Bush in the White House. It is the difference between losing your wallet at a cock fight and losing all your credit cards forever, along with your job and your house and your ability to earn enough money to pay off your sports-gambling debts or even a six-pack on game day. . .hunter s. thompson
Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it.Albert Einstein
Nature gives you the face you have whenyouaretwenty. Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But it is up to you to earn the face you have at fifty. See Orwell 630:7, Cartland198:55.
When you look at other sports, like golf, the players earn a lot more money without running around.thierry henry
I've gone bankrupt about four times now. Every dollar I earn goes on the show.lady gaga
What I got as result was my work for two periods as mayor. She came as if she owned the place, but she has to earn respect first. I just met her when she presented as candidate; before, we never saw her.jorge vargas gonzález

"It's coming soon and soon, mother, it's nearer every day,When only men who work and sweat will have a word to say;When all who earn their honest bread in every land and soilWill claim the Brotherhood of Man, the Comradeship of Toil;When we, the Workers, all demand: `What are we fighting for?' . . .Then, then we'll end that stupid crime, that devil's madness -- War."robert service
We want rights. The flour merchant, the house-builder, and the postman charge us no less on account of our sex; but when we endeavor to earn money to pay all these, then, indeed, we find the interest.lucy stone
Our future rates of gain will fall far short of those achieved in the past. Berkshire's capital base is now simply too large to allow us to earn truly outsized returns. If you believe otherwise, you should consider a career in sales but avoid one in mathematics (bearing in mind that there are really only three kinds of people in the world: those who can count and those who can't).warren buffett
There are lessons to life That the lovers got to learn There are corners out there You know they're waitin' somewhere And you've got to be prepared to turn There are callouses that come That the lovers got to earn In the years of your youth You can't be fire proof You know you've got to get burned.harry chapin
Your pictures would have been finished a long time ago if I were not forced every day to do something to earn money.edgar degas
When we look at the pay of men and women who do work equal hours, two discoveries are quite astonishing: --When women and men work less than 40 hours a week, the women earn more than the men; --When men and women work more than 40, the men earn more than the women.warren farrell
The deeper purpose of a more positive attitude toward men is a better life for the children who are parented by the men who are their dads and stepdads; less shame for our sons who will become men; and, for our daughters, a deeper understanding of men's desire to please that leaves them feeling their willingness to please is not unrequited but returned--allowing our daughters to feel less lonely and more loved. If we earn more and love less, we pay for a home in which we do not live.warren farrell
Both sexes allow men dentists inside our mouths, but, well, have you ever let a man who is a dental hygienist inside your mouth? The man must earn his way to our private places in a way not required of a woman--he must become the doctor or the dentist, or forget it.warren farrell
I believe that the root of almost every schism and heresy from which the Christian church has ever suffered, has been the effort of men to earn, rather than to receive, their salvation.john ruskin
It is clear that thought is not free if the profession of certain opinions makes it impossible to earn a living.bertrand russell
The great German poet, Goethe, who also lived through a crisis of freedom, said to his generation: "What you have inherited from your fathers, earn over again for yourselves or it will not be yours." We inherited freedom. We seem unaware that freedom has to be remade and re-earned in each generation of man.
Then bless thy secret growth, nor catch At noise, but thrive unseen and dumb; Keep clean, be as fruit, earn life, and watch Till the white-wing'd reapers come.Henry Vaughan
When the Imam says: Ghair-il-Maghdubi 'Alaihim Walad-Dallin [i.e. not the path of those who earn Your anger, not the path of those who went astray ' (1:7)], then you must say, 'Amin', for if one's utterance of 'Amin' coincides with that of the angels then his past sins will be forgiven .
The greatest problem before engineers and managers today is the economical utilization of labor . The limiting of output by the workman, and the limiting by the employer of the amount a workman is allowed to earn, are both factors which militate against that harmonious co-operation of employer and employee which is essential to their highest common good.
Then those whose balance (of good deeds ) is heavy, - they will attain salvation: But those whose balance is light, will be those Who have lost their souls ; In Hell will they abide (23:102-3). The Quran also talks about those who give their lives “to earn the pleasure of God ”(2:207) and that “God will deliver those who fear Him, for they have earned Heaven . (39:61)"
Listen to that song, and learn it! Half my kingdom would I give, As I live, If by such songs you would earn it!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
O you who believe, make not your charity worthless by reproach and injury, like him who spends his wealth to be seen of men and believes not in God and the Last Day. So His parable is as the parable of a smooth rock with earth upon it, then heavy rain falls upon it, so it leaves it bare They are not able to gain anything of that which they earn. And God guides not the disbelieving people.
And avoid open sins and secret ones. Surely they who earn sin will be rewarded for what they have earned.
