Finishing

Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.
Cavett Robert

Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.
Peter Marshall

Half finished work generally proves to be labor lost.
Abraham Lincoln

Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.
Margaret Thatcher

I always have good finishes. You go as hard as you can until the end. You can always rest when it’s over.
Janet Evans

The Power of Work

The successful person has the habit of doing the things unsuccessful people don’t like to do. They don’t like doing them either, but they subordinate their disliking by the strength of their purpose.
Albert Gray

Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them.
Joseph Joubert

I was once asked if there were such a thing as luck in trial law. “Yes,” I replied, “but it only comes in the library at three o’clock in the morning.”
Louis Nizer

I am only an average man, but I work harder at it than the average man.
Theodore Roosevelt

The greatest part about receiving the blessings is the process that you went through to gain it. The endurance, perseverance and hard work necessary for success prepare you to plant and receive multiple harvests.
T.D. Jakes

Work Ethic

The great lesson in work ethic is to push beyond the point of first fatigue.
Greg Quinn

My father was always a hard worker and he never settled for anything less than perfect. He instilled in me and my two brothers a work ethic to finish whatever we started. Dad said, “Don’t just finish it, do it well.”
Russell Maryland

I can do a lot of things now because of my dad. In a way, I owe my career to his regimented ways. I hated the hard work that I had to do back then, but I think it instilled in me the incredible work ethic that I still have today.
John Tesh

Despite the fact that my dad did not get paid a lot of money to do the jobs that he did, his work ethic was beyond reproach. His standard of ethics, honesty, accountability and responsibility was exemplary, and he instilled those values in me.
Howard Schultze

No one is born with the work ethic. Perseverance, self-discipline and frustration tolerance – the bases of a solid work ethic – are learned, not innate. It’s up to you, the parent, to instill the difference between wanting and getting, and to teach your child to postpone gratification in order to accomplish and succeed later as an adult.
Dr. Ruth Peters
