Like being the captain of a mine-sweeper, if you do your job well, nobody notices. If you don't, there's a hell of an explosion.Henry Catto
How scientists go about their job: and it's a process, it's a question of asking questions, respecting observation, respecting experiment, having tentative explanations and then testing them.... There is a problem sometimes with how we teach science at schools. Because we sometimes teach it as if it has been chiseled in stone.paul nurse
The thing that really breeds career longevity in this profession is doing good work. You can make $20 million a movie, but does that mean you'll still have a job when you're 60? It's a profession that eats people up and wants constant turnaround, so you have to dedicate yourself to learning and making the most of whatever gift you may have.ethan hawke
Look at that hand of mine Many and many a job that hand has done, with a neatness and dexterity never known afore. When I look at that hand, said Mr. Dennis, shaking it in the air .
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
You know, I am mainstream America, and it really doesn't matter what party you're in. When you call your children and you say 'How are you?' - and what you are really asking is, 'Do you still have your job? And are you able to make the mortgage payment?', That resonates across the state, not across party lines.sharron angle
One of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq with the war on terror.george w. bush
Brasília is a weird place but I like being here. I can focus on the job here, there's no city madness and I don't need urban stimulation.gilberto gil
...it's not my job to preach a sermon. Art is anyhow a homily. My job is to speak in living images, not in arguments. I must exhibit life full-face, not discuss life.nikolai vasilievich gogol
Secretive power loathes journalists who do their job: who push back screens, peer behind façades, lift rocks. Opprobrium from on high is their badge of honour.john pilger
The Roman Catholic Church is headed by a mediocre Bavarian bureaucrat once tasked with the concealment of the foulest iniquity, whose ineptitude in that job now shows him to us as a man personally and professionally responsible for enabling a filthy wave of crime. Ratzinger himself may be banal, but his whole career has the stench of evil a clinging and systematic evil that is beyond the power of exorcism to dispel. What is needed is not medieval incantation but the application of justice and speedily at that.christopher hitchens
If you wanted a safe job, go sell shoes. This is a tough business.chuck hagel
I suppose not many people dress up with insults to go out. We, the homosexuals, have no other choice. Insults are for us almost an epistemological variable: we have learned to know our fellow beings -for, as much as it surprises us, they are our fellow beings- through their insults, and they, on the other hand, have learned to know us in spite of the exhausting job -a hard duty impossed by society- of insulting us.miss shangay lily
It’s amazing that I sit at my job all day and no one sees me clearly enough to say What is that boy doing behind a desk?james richardson
Whatever job they give me, I'll try to be useful to the country. That's what I intend. But if they frustrate me with their manoeuvres we know them, those smart operators: no need to say more here if they frustrate me, it's not my fault.constantine p. cavafy
Your job is being a professor and researcher: That's one hell of a good excuse for some of the brain-damages of Minix .linus torvalds
Management of an industrial company must be giving targets to the engineers constantly; that may be the most important job management has in dealing with its engineers .
Functional people often think that, since project management is primarily an administrative job, loss of a highly technical man to that organization is a loss of resources to the company.
I pray the gods will give me some relief And end this weary job. One long full year I've been lying here, on this rooftop, The palace of the sons of Atreus, Resting on my arms, just like a dog . I've come to know the night sky, every star , The powers we see glittering in the sky, Bringing winter and summer to us all, As the constellations rise and sink.
