Dennis Muren
A company that cannot successfully implement the 5S’s cannot expect to effectively integrate JIT, re-engineering, or any other large-scale change. Good workplaces develop beginning with the 5S’s. Bad workplaces fall apart beginning with the 5S’s.

I mean, there’s only a few people that I have fanned out about before: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, pretty much anyone from ‘Star Wars.’ But I don’t usually fan out at all, just because they’re all people just doing their jobs. It’s exciting because they do very good work!

Frederick Buechner

I just want to do good work. That’s all I want to do. I don’t have big aspirations like being the President of the United States, I just want to do good work. That’s all.
Frank Oz
You learn how to do good work by being honest with yourself.
Rodney Crowell
When some say that good works are forbidden when we preach faith alone, it is as if I said to a sick man: “If you had health, you would have the use of all your limbs; but without health, the works of all your limbs are nothing”; and he wanted to infer that I had forbidden the works of all his limbs.
Martin Luther
It is a mistake to expect good work from expatriates for it is not what they do that matters but what they are not doing.
Cyril Connolly
There’s so much fakeness in the fashion world, but Mum and Dad have always given us a good work ethic and were quite worried at first about whether I could make a living from acting. They’ve been together for 29 years and share the same values. I really do want to have that kind of marriage myself.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen
There is always a bit of pressure to do a good album – to do good work, period. I really put a lot of pressure on myself, more so than other people. But I try not to let that overwhelm me to the point where I can’t even do good work. I just put it aside and do the best that I know that I can.
It takes a lot of weapons to do good works (as Richard the Lionhearted could have told us). And this is not just a Somali problem. We have poverty and deprivation in our own country. Try standing unarmed on a street corner in Compton handing out twenty-dollar bills and see how long you last.
P. J. O’Rourke
The best restriction I learned was getting into the habit of doing something, even if I didn’t feel like it, instead of running away from it. Sometimes good work needs to be earned, and when you can overcome yourself, the muse notices and celebrates.

Matt Hardy
My idea of a good work-out is two hours spent worrying about the bags under my eyes.

Jon Stewart
A lively faith will bear aloft the mind, and leave the luggage of good works behind.

There’s a world of difference . . . between that information to which we now presumably have access by way of computers, libraries, and the rest of it, great stockpiles of data, and the knowledge that people have in their bones by which they do good work and live good lives.
Wendell Berry
What is good work? You just know it when you see it. You just can’t explain it.

If you fail to make a mark, you might not get good work later. So, it is important for every actor to have a plan B to bank on. Here, nothing lasts forever. That’s why my husband pushes me to do different things in life.
Anita Hassanandani Reddy
I go where the good work is being done.
Sissy Spacek
The cast gets along pretty well, it’s a good work environment. I hang out a lot with Brett Claywell, he plays Tim Smith on the show. We play plenty of basketball.

Louis Garrel
Plenty of men can do good work for a spurt and with immediate promotion in mind, but for promotion you want a man in whom good work has become a habit.
Henry Latham Doherty
The name of our proper connection to the earth is ‘good work,’ for good work involves much giving of honor. It honors the source of its materials; it honors the place where it is done; it honors the art by which it is done; it honors the thing that it makes and the user of the made thing.
Wendell Berry
The whole Bible is the story of men and women trying to get back to God, to overcome that sin with sacrifices, good works, sermons, prophesy, witnessing, giving all kinds of things. It never worked

Dan Fogelberg
Morality is a neat cover for foul venom, but it does not alter the fact that the heart is vile, and the man himself is under damnation. Men will be damned with good works as well as without them, if they make them their confidence (rather than Jesus Christ).
Charles Spurgeon
I am not an insecure person. Thanks to my training in martial arts, I have it in me to appreciate good work, say ‘Wow,’ and say ‘You deserve it.’
Ritika Singh
The World Development Movement, to take just one example, is doing good work. Some political parties are, too.
Susan George

Iain Dowie
We had training camp for a week, and we used the actual military drills of that period. We didn’t have to work out much after hours, because going up and down hills all day was a good workout in itself.
Tom Berenger
No matter where my travels take me, my day starts with a good work out, preferably kitesurfing or tennis. Exercise puts me in the right state of mind for the day. Dedicating time in the morning to exercise your body will make a big difference when you have to focus your mind on the day’s work.
Richard Branson
The group will not prosper if the leader grabs the lion’s share of the credit for the good work that has been done.
There are no shortcuts. If you feel good, you’ll look good, you’ll play good. Work hard every day. No matter what your strengths and weaknesses, there’s no substitute for hard work.
Hope Solo
My parents instilled a really good work ethic from when I was little – if you want to have money to spend on holidays, you earn it. So I’ve always been someone who wanted to be able to survive by myself, but I think you have to let down the barriers a little bit – let other people in.
Emilia Fox
If it were given to a man to see virtue’s reward in the next world, he would occupy his intellect, memory and will in nothing but good works, careless of danger or fatigue.

Dev Anand
John Kricfalusi is very talented; he used to really piss me off. But I did good work, you know? The Ren & Stimpy show without me was totally unsuccessful. So if there’s anybody listening out there with any doubts about what I can do for a show: Try me. The thing is, I wasn’t about to stop doing a job.
Billy West
Randy said I could call him for anything, Paula said that she loved me and said how much of a star I was. Simon was like, keep up the good work and I’ll have nothing to worry about.
LaToya London
I stay subjective because that’s what I do. That’s one of my abilities. I don’t need to watch it because I’ve had the adventure. I don’t do low-budget acting. I do the same acting, whether I’m in a Jim Cameron or not. I always try to do good work. There’s no snobbery in there
Lance Henriksen
I want to do good work. I want the opportunity to work with good people, and the only way I’m gonna do that is to commit 110% – you get out what you put in.

Denise Di Novi
Nothing that’s good works by itself, you’ve got to make the damn thing work.
Thomas A. Edison
Do your best with what you have where you are.
Lucy Punch
I never wanted to be well-rounded. I do not admire well-rounded people nor their work. So far as I can see, nothing good in the world has ever been done by well-rounded people. The good work is done by people with jagged, broken edges, because those edges cut things and leave an imprint, a design.
Harry Crews

Mark Harmon
It’s time that we move from good words to good works, from sound bites to sound solutions.
Hillary Clinton
‘Macbeth’ is one of the best operas ever, and doing it was a great experience. I added some things to the opera based from my experience on the movie – such as some of the special effects and bits of film – to make it new and interesting. It was a very good work and a very good experience.
Dario Argento
But I want to do good work, after this series.
Jackie Cooper
I don’t want to do anything and everything. I want to be a brand that, every time I leverage my name, I want people to feel sure that it’s going to be something good – so whether it be my movies, my perfume, my restaurant, my musical, it’ll be good work, good food and good everything.
Shilpa Shetty

John Landgraf
I don’t have a good work ethic. I have a real casual relationship with hours.

Luke Harper
Good wine makes good blood, good blood causeth good humors, good humors cause good thoughts, good thoughts bring forth good works, good works carry a man to heaven, ergo, good wine carrieth a man to heaven.
James Howell
Good work and joyous play go hand in hand. When play stops, old age begins. Play keeps you from taking life too seriously.
Lord Byron
My good works, however wretched and imperfect, have been made better and perfected by Him Who is my Lord: He has rendered them meritorious. As to my evil deeds and my sins, He hid them at once. The eyes of those who saw them, He made even blind; and He has blotted them out of their memory.
Teresa of Avila
The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work
Steve Jobs
I think when you’re doing good work, you don’t necessarily need to be validated.
Katee Sackhoff
It’s not my style to either wear minimum clothes, to strip, or to even be comfortable with a sex-symbol label. I just want to do good work instead of sporting such meaningless tags. Sex sells, but to a small extent, not always. And this is what filmmakers have to accept.
Katrina Kaif
Fame is something I think happens as a result of trying to do good work. If you’re trying to be famous, your work usually suffers.
Justin Theroux
The Bible applied to the heart by the Holy Ghost is the chief means by which men are built up and established in the faith, after their conversion. It is able to cleanse them, to sanctify them, to instruct them in righteousness, and to furnish them thoroughly for all good works.
J. C. Ryle
Faith has a saving connection with Christ. Christ is on the shore, so to speak, holding the rope, and as we lay hold of it with the hand of our confidence, He pulls us to shore; but all good works having no connection with Christ are drifted along down the gulf of fell despair.
Charles Spurgeon
The cast gets along pretty well, it’s a good work environment. I hang out a lot with Brett Claywell, he plays Tim Smith on the show. We play plenty of basketball
James Lafferty
Honestly, I spend very little time thinking about past events, and I certainly don’t have them ranked in any way. I look back and think that I have done a lot of good work over the years, but I am much more excited about what the future holds.
John Carmack
If you love something – and there are things that I love – you do want more and more and more of it, but that’s not the way to produce good work.
J. K. Rowling
It was good work, the kind of work that let you sleep soundly at night and, when you awoke, look forward to the day.
Jeannette Walls
I don’t even know what a traditional producer is or does. I feel like the job is like being a coach, building good work habits and building trust. You want to get to a point where you can say anything and talk about anything. There needs to be a real connection.
Rick Rubin
I think I have a really good work ethic.
Ashlyn Harris
It’s amazing, the quality of good work that happened in the fifties when a series would have to turn out 30-some episodes a season – it’s amazing that ‘I Love Lucy’ was as good as it was!
Vince Gilligan
Most people work at keeping their job, rather than doing a good job. If you’re the former, you’re leading a meaningless life. If you’re the latter, keep up the good work.
George Lois
If you could work your way to heaven, you would said look what I did, I got myself here by my good works. The only way you are going to make it is to come to that Cross.
Billy Graham
On many days my primary artistic struggle is, in fact, photography because it is harder to do good work with that. I see myself as an observer of the world who has a strong drive to testify, which I can do because I have the privilege of living in New York with enough food to eat and shelter.
Teju Cole
Whatever final judgment awaits ‘Bush v. Gore’ in the annals of history, I am certain that the good work and good faith of the U.S. federal judiciary as a whole will continue to sustain public confidence at a level never beyond repair.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Memory of our good works makes us negligent and leads to arrogance. Do not think of your good deeds, so that God may remember them.
Saint John Chrysostom
Not much ever really comes of commissions, really. The last one that really came up with something truly concrete was the Warren Commission, and for all its good work, most Americans persist in believing that Oswald was working in tandem with the CIA, FBI, Lyndon Johnson, and the John Birch Society.
Christopher Buckley
That is how His Majesty [the Lord] rewards our good works—I mean, by predisposing us to perform better ones.

I think I am very mainstream – I’m committed to good works in my life.
Peter Jennings
As the flower is before the fruit, so is faith before good works.
Richard Whately
When I am getting to do good work on TV, why not concentrate on that? Why think about what films I can do?
Sanjeeda Sheikh
Nothing is more false and more indiscreet than always to want to choose what mortifies us in everything. By this rule a person would soon ruin his health, his business, his reputation, his relations with his relatives and friends, in fact every good work which Providence gives him.
Francois Fenelon
We must each prepare ourselves for every good work that might come to us and then accept the principle that revelation, not aspiration, is the basis for our respective callings.

Mel Brooks
I just know that if your work is good, good work follow.
Huma Qureshi
Everyone works hard in this industry. However, it takes time to get good work. Some get it quite late. It is a frustrating and confusing journey, but I feel I have been patient.
Sana Khan
If I have a chance to try in Hollywood I will grab it. What is important is that the work is good – if it’s a good role I will grab it. I simply want to do good work and I don’t mind where it is.
Tang Wei
I really like doing good work and working with good people – that’s the thing that drives me.
Giles Deacon
Competitive feeling means you want do do good work. You can’t lie about wanting to be on top. There is no reason for me to be insecure at this time. I would be insecure if I was sitting at home doing nothing, but I am in films now, and that’s where I always wanted to be.
Alia Bhatt
My first movie was ‘Diner.’ My second movie was ‘Tender Mercies.’ I did really good work.
Ellen Barkin
I’d rather see the United States as a beacon of good work and good citizenship, rather than as #1 on some international educational measurement.
Howard Gardner
You have to care. You can’t do good work if you don’t care. That’s not necessarily a strength, but it gives you strength.
William Albert Allard
Secrets can actually be quite important. A work of art that reveals its meaning or its power too quickly is uninteresting. It might not even be a good work of art.
Thomas Koerfer
Nobody has a guaranteed position in computer technologies business. We’ve done some good work, but all of these products become obsolete so fast and the structure of the business as it broadens out is going to be so different.
Bill Gates
As an old man who remembers the intellectual exhilaration and the pleasure of having done good work that characterized the CIA when it was young, I wonder if it might not be better to speak and think in terms of restoring its culture.
Charles McCarry
Every good work should have at least ten meanings.
Walter De Maria
It’s the artist’s duty to have an artist’s life, somehow to obtain time and freedom and then to muster the desire and discipline to make good work out of the life, whether that goodness is in the world’s aesthetics, its radicalism, its candor, its singularity, or its universality.
Stephanie Mills
Me and Kyle O’Reilly have wrestled all around the world. We’ve done good work.
Matt Riddle
To me, it’s about good work, a good story, and tastefully done. There’s so many stigmas – oh, you’re on the small screen or you do films or you do reality. It’s about the project and not the medium on which it’s delivered. It’s the story you tell, period.
Keshia Knight Pulliam
I’ve seen the promised land, and there is good news. You can have it all.
Tim Ferriss
Good and productive labor is valuable, and it doesn’t mean you have to have a fancy job description. You don’t have to become rich. You can be ordinary. Happiness lies there. Do good work, create good work for others.
Jay Parini
…stopping a piece of work just because it’s hard, either emotionally or imaginatively, is a bad idea. Sometimes you have to go on when you don’t feel like it, and sometimes you’re doing good work when if feels like all you’re managing is to shovel sh*t from a sitting position.
Stephen King
PC stuff just lowers the general acceptance of good work and replaces it with bogus poetry that celebrates values that in themselves are probably quite worthy.
Diane Wakoski
I don’t think crowdfunding is a good idea for journalism in general. Good work should be supported by news organizations, and publishers should pony up money to support investigative reporting. But we’re in hard times, so there are upsides and downsides to it.
Erin Siegal McIntyre
Television has filled the space for actors that really want to make good work and not just make a lot of money and be famous for making a lot of money and being famous.
Gaby Hoffmann
The thing I’m absolutely convinced of, no matter how crazy – technological the world is getting, is that people feel more connected through the good works. Entertainment, and the sort of soporific effect it has on people and their stress, is one thing.
Edward Norton
As an artist, one of the ingredients to doing good work is self-awareness, and that’s something I cultivate.
Rodney Crowell
All you can do is do good work, and do the good work for the sake of doing the good work and your evolution as an artist. That’s what’s most important to me.
Audra McDonald
So then you have to say to yourself: Do I want to be rich, or do I want to do good work?
Jackie Cooper
For me, it’s just eat whatever makes you feel good. Work out whenever you want to. Just take care of yourself.
Jessica Simpson
My work has never been about me, and I’ve never made a big deal about my race. I’ve actually tried hard to avoid ever making a big deal out of it and have, instead, simply tried to do good work that matters.
Shaun King
In 2014, Modi’s name was there in the minds of people due to the good work he had done in Gujarat as chief minister. He made Gujarat one of the most developed states in India.
Yogi Adityanath
On the last day, God will not acquit us because our good works were good enough, but he will look for evidence that our good confession was not phony. It’s in this sense that we must be holy.
Kevin DeYoung
Right now, I’d like to just continue on a series where I am doing good work with a balance of comedy and drama. That and do occasional features and movies.

Tyler Perry
Right now I’m doing four shows at a time, trying to read four outlines every week, four scripts every week, and watching four rough cuts; it’s a lot of good work. It’s fun to do it, but it does wear you out.
Aaron Spelling
God opposes the proud. The way you get up front is do really good work in the back. Humility is a by product of spending time with Jesus – it is not a reflection of yourself
Bradley Cooper
A man cannot be professor of zoölogy on one day and of chemistry on the next, and do good work in both. As in a concert all are musicians,-one plays one instrument, and one another, but none all in perfection.
Louis Agassiz
I always wanted to do good work, the best that I was able to, to really discover myself, getting better with each role, and find newer ways to do the same thing.
I did a lot of good work with my trainer and the physio in Barbados, and they were tremendous help to me during my comeback period.
Fidel Edwards
I became a victim of my own good work in ‘Buniyaad.’ It established my credentials as an actor but I became Babuji forever, the benevolent father figure with a perpetual smile, who has a discourse on sanskaar ready.
Alok Nath
The fact that people who create are good workers tends to be lost.
Abraham Maslow
I am planning the release of 2NE1’s new album for after CL finishes her solo activities. 2NE1 will surely show you good work until the expiration of their contracts.
Yang Hyun-suk
When someone gets a success, and we, too, have done good work and sometimes even better work than the person who has just triumphed, we wonder: Why did success pass me by?
Akhil Sharma
My career wasn’t planned, never had any targets. I just go by my instincts, and I think I am doing good work.
Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises. Don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned with doing good work and make the right choices and protect your work. And if you can build a good name, eventually, that name will be its own currency.
William S. Burroughs
Why does God bless us with abundance? So we can have enough to live on and then use the rest for all manner of good works that alleviate spiritual and physical misery. Enough for us; abundance for others.
John Piper
We’re getting the blues about having to walk away from this whole thing. We enjoyed it a lot and it all felt good. We had a good experience on it. We thought we could do good work together. And it is unusual to get the next one, straight off the bed. John is funny. When he gets moving, he moves pretty quickly.
Brendan Gleeson
Genesis 1 logs God’s commitment to excellence when it says, “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good” (v. 31). Christians should always do good work. Christians ought to be the best workers wherever they are. They ought to have the best attitude, the best integrity, and be the best in dependability.
R. Kent Hughes
Vicky Kaushal is a shining example of what happens when you do good work consistently. Rajkummar Rao, Radhika Apte are other examples.
Kubra Sait
I’m ready to do good work in good films.
Vishal Jethwa
Be all of you subject one to another having your conduct blameless among the Gentiles, that you may both receive praise for your good works, and the Lord may not be blasphemed through you. But woe to him by whom the name of the Lord is blasphemed! Teach, therefore, sobriety to all, and manifest it also in your own conduct
I was living in London and I thought, ‘There’s nothing here for me anymore.’ I don’t want to become this actor who’s going to be doing this occasional good work in the theater and then ever diminishing bad television. I thought I’d rather do bad movies than bad television because you get more money for it.
Brian Cox
I do good work in Pakistan. I am an A-lister actor. So, even in Bollywood I want to work with an A-lister.
Saba Qamar
Grace alone brings about every good work in us.
Saint Augustine
The truth be told, the World Trade Center was neither a very good work of architecture nor a very successful piece of urbanism. Its shortcomings were somewhat mitigated by the westward and southward expansion of the World Financial Center and Battery Park City during the 1980s.
Martin Filler
My father was a politician and I had no contacts in the music industry, but I could still do some good work because I was passionate enough and dedicated towards music.
Jubin Nautiyal
We should know that faith is a gift of God, and that it may not be given to men, except it be graciously. Thus, indeed, all the good which we have is of God; and accordingly, when God rewardeth a good work of man, he crowneth his own gift.
John Wycliffe
I am throwing all my good works overboard, and lashing myself to the plank of free grace; for I hope to swim to glory on it.
Charles Spurgeon
I’ve discovered that the standard all-American dream of fame and fortune is not success for me. Success for me is simply the joy of working – doing good work – and then bringing that joy home to my family. But if what I do in my work doesn’t enrich my life with my family, I’m doing the wrong thing.
Gary Burghoff
I suppose in the long run, it’s the good work that outlasts the shoddy work, but there’s enough room for all kinds of writing.
Ruskin Bond
Most people that take jobs as police officers are taking them because they’re good jobs. Many who go into these jobs are doing it because it’s good work.

Supriya Pathak
If your work is solid, it really doesn’t matter what people you know because good work starts to rise to the top.
Ava DuVernay
I had to work harder. I couldn’t do the social thing, and play the game the others were playing. I had to work that much harder and handle the ‘evils’ by doing good work.
Charles Walters
Happy will be those who give ear to the words of the dead: – The reading of good works and the observing of their precepts.
Leonardo da Vinci
I don’t see myself in competition with anyone, I am in my own space; I don’t follow anyone, though I appreciate good work always.
Guru Randhawa
I think what we need to do is we need to seek some other way in which to do what is potentially good work by Google. Google has made the world a better place in some ways.
Jonathon Keats

Rishi Kapoor
Good work in the building of my vessel stood me always in good stead.
Joshua Slocum
Although your father and mother are dead, if you propose to yourself any good work, only reflect how it will make their names illustrious, and your purpose will be fixed.
I want to do good work, but having kids and a life outside of that is important, too. If you don’t have anybody around who loves you, then what’s it all for? You’re just lonely in the end.
Josh Duhamel
Good food, good vibes. Keep up the good work.
Charles McPherson
While we do our good works let us not forget that the real solution lies in a world in which charity will have become unnecessary.

Ben Wallace
There’s never a surefire good career move except doing good work.
Seth Green
You may write twenty lines one day–or even three like Euripides in three days–and a hundred lines in one more day–and yet on the hundred, may have been expended as much good work, as on the twenty and the three.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Sometimes good work is done with passion, enthusiasm – presence can be as valuable as many millions of pounds.
Gianfranco Zola
I think I am against stereotype. Generally, Asian guys are more quiet – they study and have a good work ethic. Generally, I have none of those things.
Bobby Lee
If you’ve got a deadline and you’re an artist, you’ve just got to be on the case – nothing else can come in the way, or you won’t make good work… the people around you just have to understand.
Catherine Yass
I’ll lift up the good work that is happening and hold officers or departments that engage in unconstitutional policing accountable.
Hillary Clinton
People don’t do good work when they feel like losers and are second class citizens within their own company.
Jonah Peretti
Sounded to me like he had a pretty good idea what he was saying,” Van replied, with surprisingly little anger. “It’s a pity he had to overintellectualize like that. He did such good work, and then he had to go and intellectualize it.
Jonathan Franzen
Of course, one of the most disturbing features is the fact that while we have had roughly a ten year pause in the arms race where a lot of good work was done, this has now come to an end. For what we are seeing at the present time are new developments in anti-missile weaponry, drones, and so on.
Paul Virilio
I do not need any rest. I enjoy my work, and at work, I rest. I rest with my good work.
Kiran Bedi
For me, doing good work is important.
Anushka Shetty
I just wanna build momentum again. Keeping yourself in work is one thing, keeping yourself in good work’s another. But if it doesn’t work out, so be it. As the Taoists say, Learn to accept that which you cannot change.
Ian Hart
It’s not about the fame and the money because if you do good work all that stuff comes.
David Cassidy
The guy who shows up on time, who has a good work ethic, network executives and producers know that. It’s a very small industry we work in.
Rocky Carroll
If a man is unable to find the way to Jesus, he ought to be led. It is good work this bringing the blind to Him who alone can give them sight.
Henry Clay Trumbull
One beautiful diamond is worth more than a mountain of stones, and one virtuous act of acquiescence and submission is better than an abundance of good works done for others.
Vincent de Paul
No good work whatever can be perfect, and the demand for perfection is always a sign of a misunderstanding of the ends of art.
John Ruskin
I don’t want to be an actress. I want to be doing good work that is well written and has good people in it.
Claire Danes
The audience is expecting good work from me. They want me to do roles that are unique and important in the story. So, I am trying to focus on different characters to play. I am doing the kind of films which are completely different from each other.
I think I have a good rapport with the people I work with and that really helps. If you like working with people and you always have a good time and you always do good work, then they’re going to book you again. I like doing what I do.
Kate Moss
I try to keep in mind that it’s a long journey. It’s not a race. It’s about staying focused, continuing to do good work, make my family and community proud; that’s all I really want to do… and pay my bills.
Gina Rodriguez
It’s impossible to feel the creative juices flowing if you’re always worried about the end result. I think really, really good work comes out of people being quite open, not stressed, really exploring, trying to be imaginative, without worrying too much about the end result.
Marianne Elliott
We can’t allow science to undo its own good work.
Aldous Huxley
Creativity is a habit, and the best creativity is a result of good work habits.
Twyla Tharp

Joel Kinnaman
I definitely am open to South Indian films. There is a lot of good work coming from these states and I would like to be a part in some of them.

My passion is becoming involved in good work, whether that means as an actor or writer or director or producer or all – that is not as important to me.
Bryan Cranston
For good work to develop the technology needs to become as stable and functional as a typewriter.
Alec Soth
Generally, I am just myself, a crazy John Belushi type. But I’m not comparing myself to him. I think I am against stereotype. Generally Asian guys are more quiet – they study and have a good work ethic. Generally, I have none of those things.
Bobby Lee
When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.
Henry J. Kaiser
Our good works are like stones cast into the pool of time; though the stones themselves may disappear, their ripples extend to eternity.

Clint Mansell
You can’t control other people, and giving them the power to decide if you will continue to produce good work is foolish.

Sudha Kongara
The stuff that I got in trouble for, the casting for The Godfather or the flag scene in Patton, was the stuff that was remembered, and was considered the good work.
Francis Ford Coppola
The focus has to be about making good work. I don’t ever want to be hired for a job because I’m a woman. And I don’t ever want to be recognized for a job because I’m a woman.
Rachel Morrison
Circumcision stands for a religion of human achievement, of what man can do by his own good works; Christ stands for a religion of divine achievement, of what God has done through the finished work of Christ.
John Stott
No amount of pay ever made a good soldier, a good teacher, a good artist, or a good workman.
John Ruskin

Mahesh Babu

Neena Gupta

Dot Richardson

Angela Bassett
I just want to do good work.
Tracey Ullman
Do good work and let that speak for itself. Don’t waste time arguing with someone. Instead, show them in your work. That’s easier said than done, but it really is the best solution. No one can argue with good work.
Megan Alexander
I had to create some good work habits and attitude.
S. Truett Cathy
I am not the least bit religious, but at least I stick up for the good work of religion and the cascade of benefits that come from religion.

Theodore Roosevelt
I’ve done some good work and some not-good work.

Oscar de la Renta
There are many interactions that an actor like me has in public when he gets recognized. The best are ‘You’re a great actor, good work,’ and move on.

I don’t think I’m easy, but I think I’m quite a good worker.
Gael Monfils
I seek out good work.

I’m going to try to keep believing that if you do good work, people will keep calling. Whenever that fails, I’ll just start going nuts on Twitter.
Jesse Plemons
Ultimately the first, best step in getting your work noticed is to write good work. If people don’t engage in your writing, no amount of serialization or free downloads is going to matter. You have to write something worth reading, and often it takes time to get at that level.
John Scalzi
You have to free yourself from your mental conditioning through association with the holy, through doing good works, through meditating, through laughter, through love and through solitude.

George W. Bush
Good workemen are seldome rich.
George Herbert
More brands are waking up to their social responsibility and doing good work through cause marketing campaigns. Yet too many still go about it the wrong way. I mean ‘wrong’ in two senses. Firstly, they are marketing ineffectively, and secondly, as a consequence their positive social impact is not maximized.
Simon Mainwaring
I feel really grateful to be a part of a cast that is dedicated week in and week out to doing good work, and you don’t always come across that, but everybody on the call sheet is committed to doing good work, and a big part of that is having these firefighters on set and using our resources.
Miranda Rae Mayo
I think that when you are struggling as an actor, you imagine that if things were to pan out, everything in your life would change, But really, it’s not so different. You’re still pursuing good work. You still panic that you’re doing it all wrong.
Katherine Waterston
The people at the NSA aren’t trying to ruin your life. They’re not trying to put you in authoritarian dystopia. These are normal people trying to do good work in hard circumstances.
Edward Snowden
A lot of people think, ‘Oh, you made ‘SNL.’ You’re set. You’re good.’ No. All there is gigs, and you go from one gig to another. And hopefully you get a good gig, and it lasts for a while, and you get good work and people remember it, and you have good memories of it.
Rob Riggle
Planned Parenthood does some very good work. But I would defund as long as they’re doing abortions.
Donald Trump
The wearing of costly array is directly opposite to being adorned with good works. Nothing can be more evident than this; for the more you lay out on your own apparel, the less you have left to clothe the naked, to feed the hungry, to lodge the stranger, to relieve those that are sick and in prison.
John Wesley
What positive change? Why didn’t we hear a word about all of Hillary Clinton’s good works for the Clinton charitable foundation? I mean, you would think that’s where it would all be.But we didn’t hear about it.
Rush Limbaugh
When I am presented with good work, I accept it. Wherever it is.

Gunter Grass
There are many interactions that an actor like me has in public when he gets recognized. The best are ‘You’re a great actor, good work,’ and move on.

Gautama Buddha
Many have been deceived by outward appearances and have proceeded to write and teach about good works and how they justify without even mentioning faith…. Wearying themselves with many works, they never come to righteousness.
Martin Luther
Now, I’m simply working with people I want to work with. I just want to have good working experiences and let the dice fall where they may.
Dustin Hoffman
I think having healthy relationships makes me feel much more confident and available to do good work as an actor.
Rose McIver
In dreams the truth is learned that all good works are done in the absence of a caress.
Leonard Cohen
I think that anything that leads to creativity and good work is good.
Jon Favreau
I’ll walk around the city, and people will come up to me and say, ‘Hi,’ or ‘Keep up the good work,’ or whatever, and I’ll stop and talk to them.
Ryan Howard
I am ambitious to do good work and do it really well.
Parineeti Chopra
Hatred is gained as much by good works as by evil.
Niccolo Machiavelli
For me, this is a familiar image – people in the organization ready and willing to do good work, wanting to contribute their ideas, ready to take responsibility, and leaders holding them back, insisting that they wait for decisions or instructions
Margaret J. Wheatley
Free will does not enable any man to perform good works, unless he is assisted by grace; indeed, the special grace which the elect alone receive through regeneration. For I stay not to consider the extravagance of those who say that grace is offered equally and promiscuously to all
John Calvin
The RNC has made a concerted effort to work with their allies with a real focus on what we can do to equip candidates with the resources to win in 2014 and beyond. There isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t see someone from the RNC at our weekly coalition meeting. Keep up the good work.
Grover Norquist
I wanted to act and do good work with good people. I wanted to be a part of good content. That was my only ambition. So I made the most of the opportunities that came to me.
Mithila Palkar
Too little process and you can’t get good work done. Too much process and you can’t get any work done. Most companies never find the middle.
Aaron Levie
To say, ‘well done’ to any bit of good work is to take hold of the powers which have made the effort and strengthen them beyond our knowledge.
Phillips Brooks
In real estate, if you’re hustling and maintaining a good work ethic, you’ll get deals.
Matt Leinart
We admit no faith to be justifying, which is not itself and in its own nature a spiritually vital principle of obedience and good works.
John Owen
I’ve only been acting since 2009 and I learn more and more with each job. I think I prepare and I’m very focused and I have a good work ethic that I learned in school.
Jenny Slate
I love to drown myself in work. I pray to God to keep me busy and let me do good work.
Rithvik Dhanjani
The wise leader settles for good work and then lets others have the floor.
‘Black Mirror,’ I read that, and I had another offer for a movie at the same time that was a bigger movie, an actual film as opposed to TV, but I said, ‘No, it has to be Black Mirror.’ And it hadn’t been sold to Netflix, hadn’t gone abroad at that point – but it’s just good work – that’s all there is to it.
Domhnall Gleeson
I just want to continue to produce good work. I don’t want to do junk.
David Cassidy
I’m getting some really good work. And because I’m delivering what they want, more good work is coming my way.
Sanjay Dutt
Never forget that to forgive yourself is to release trapped energy that could be doing good work in the world.
D. Patrick Miller
For the devil may tempt the good, but he cannot find rest in them; for he is shaken violently, and upset, and driven out, now by their prayers, now by their tears of repentance, and now by their almsgiving and similar good works.
Bruno of Cologne
When you have such a good workout, it clears everything up mentally, physically, and you just have a better day.
Minka Kelly
The father of every good work is discontent, and its mother is diligence.
Lajos Kassak
A long and wicked life followed by five minutes of perfect grace gets you into Heaven. An equally long life of decent living and good works followed by one outburst of taking the name of the lord in vain- then have a heart attack at that moment and be damned for eternity. Is that the system?
Robert A. Heinlein
The child of God knows his good works do not make him acceptable to God, for he was acceptable to God by Jesus Christ long before he had any good works.
Charles Spurgeon
I just really want to do good work and work with some great people, people who challenge me.
Salli Richardson
I absolutely refuse the fame part of my business. I refuse even the money side of my business. I try to do as good work as I can do, I try to grow in my art and reach for truth. That’s what I want from my art, that’s what I aspire to.
Connie Nielsen
I remember a very important lesson that my father gave me when I was twelve or thirteen. He said, “You know, today I welded a perfect seam and I signed my name to it.” And I said, “But, Daddy, no one’s going to see it!” And he said, “Yeah, but I know it’s there.” So when I was working in kitchens, I did good work.
Toni Morrison
Tactics mean doing what you can with what you have.
Saul Alinsky
If the devil were to offer me a resurgence of what is commonly called virility, I’d decline. ”Just keep my liver and lungs in good working order,” I’d reply, ”so I can go on drinking and smoking!”
Luis Bunuel
He who receives a sacrament does not perform a good work; he receives a benefit. In the mass we give Christ nothing; we only receive from Him.
Martin Luther
Girded with faith and the performance of good works, let us follow in his [Jesus] paths by the guidance of the Gospel.
Benedict of Nursia
Part of doing good work is caring deeply about it, believing in what you’re doing, and getting incredibly attached to the characters that you’re playing, the stories you’re telling, and the people you’re working with.
Ari Graynor
That’s what is was to be young – to be enthusiastic rather than envious about the good work other people could do.
Kurt Vonnegut
Passive righteousness tells us that God does not need our good works. Active righteousness tells us that our neighbor does. The aim and direction of good works are horizontal, not vertical.
Tullian Tchividjian
All religions must be made child-proof. Our teachers’ unions have done good work in this field, K through 12. Delaying first communions and bar mitzvahs until age 21 would be another positive step.
P. J. O’Rourke
I think that they had afforded me many opportunities to do good work there, and I think I did. It was a wonderful four years. I really worked with some great people, terrific producers, terrific editors.
Connie Chung
My mantra is simple: work gets you work, and good work gets you good work.
Yami Gautam
True faith will no more fail to produce [good works] than the sun can cease to give light.
Martin Luther
If you do good work for good clients, it will lead to other good work for other good clients. If you do bad work for bad clients, it will lead to other bad work for other bad clients.
Michael Bierut
Perhaps you should say there should be mandatory retirement even of members of the court, members of the federal judiciary. I’m sure there can be questions about whether one does as good work when you get into your – you know, I’m 67.
William Rehnquist
I want to do good work and not take on any movie. I want to do a good movie where I have the most important or very good role.
Krystle D’Souza
I desire to leave to the men that come after me a remembrance of me in good works.
Alfred the Great
Good works is giving to the poor and the helpless, but divine works is showing them their worth to the One who matters.
Criss Jami
I think the most difficult part is being patient for good work to come. Sometimes, you feel like giving up if things don’t materialise in a short period of time.
Nora Fatehi
The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today.
Elbert Hubbard
Blythe Danner is somebody whose career I admire. She’s a great actress and does good work, but also has a life of her own. I love my job but, at the end of the day, I want to come home and watch a movie and drink a bottle of wine with my husband.
Anna Faris
Every film for every actor is a make-or-break film. I believe every film has the power to break you or make you. So, an actor will treat every film like his last film. That’s the way we need to work, and that’s the way you can drum up that passion needed to do good work.
Abhishek Bachchan
I support anything that we can do, including investigations or otherwise, to protect Americans from foreign interference in all of our good work that we need to do in the United States, whether it be our elections, whether it be our businesses, whether it be our electric grids.
Reince Priebus
The left wants you to believe that true morality is defined by how much money you give the government, how much money you pay the government, how much money the government gets from you, because only the government does good stuff, only the government does good works, only the government cares about people. It’s bogus.
Rush Limbaugh
We have to make it easier to be good workers, good parents and good caregivers all at the same time. That’s why I’ve set out a bold vision to make quality, affordable child care available to all Americans and limit the cost to 10 percent of family income.
Hillary Clinton
I want to do good work in cinemas and on OTT.
Dino Morea
It’s continuously humbling to work hard, you know? As long as you’ve got a good work ethic and a sense of humor, I don’t think anybody can become too much of an egoist under those circumstances.
Rachael Ray
There’s no problem with trying to be successful, but it’s all about just doing good work. It’s not about fame.
Brian Gleeson
Hanks is a good man, and he produced the “John Adams” series as well. He does good work. But I’m more worried about a Tom Hanks when we’re at war against radical Islam than I am against a caricature like Sean Penn. He’s a completely marginalized soul.
Bill O’Reilly
If a work of art or a new style disturbs you, then it is probably good work. If you hate it, it is probably great.
Leo Steinberg
In the active life all the vices are first of all to be removed by the practice of good works, so that in the contemplative life a man may, with now purified mental gaze, pass on to the contemplation of the Divine Light.
Isidore of Seville
I want longevity. I don’t want to be a flash in the pan. I want to continue to do good work and projects that inspire me, and if I can have fun while doing it, that’s the dream.
Skylar Astin
Those who relish the study of character may profit by the reading of good works of fiction, the product of well-established authors.
Richard Whately
Good work, like good talk or any other form of worthwhile human relationship, depends upon being able to assume an extended shared world.
Stefan Collini
As an actor, all you want to do is to work and do good work.
Michelle Fairley
Do good work. Don’t worry about expressing yourself. Figure out what you do well and make it better.
Thomas S. Buechner
As an actor, you think to yourself, ‘I want to do good work,’ but you also want the work that you do to make an impact in some way.
Jimmy Smits
Where people aren’t having any fun, they seldom produce good work.
David Ogilvy
Generally, there’s a correlation between good work and good reviews. In the very odd, very rare case that they say it’s terrible, but actually you’re a genius who is ahead of your time, you are going to just have to suffer.
Tim Minchin
If you love something – and there are things that I love – you do want more and more and more of it, but that’s not the way to produce good work. So as an author, I need to write what I need to write.
J. K. Rowling
When we say ‘hallowed be Your name’ to God what we are really saying is ‘Father, make us such as deserve knowledge and understanding of how holy You are, or at least let Your holiness shine forth in the spiritual lives we lead.’ And this surely happens as men see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.
John Cassian
Even if all we have is a little, the Lord desires us to be joyfully generous, so that He will have for His church an abundance for every good work. Let us not be selfish or deceived by money. In a real sense, money is not a blessing; it’s a test.
Francis Frangipane
Truly, if faith is there, the believer cannot hold back… he breaks out into good works.
Martin Luther
I was getting a lot of good work with my wrestling up in Iowa, but I needed a more all-around game, striking, jiu-jitsu at a high level. I had a lot of good coaches out at ATT to work with. They pushed me. Everything was smarter. Everything was precise.
Robbie Lawler
There are hardly half a dozen writers in England today who have not sold out to the enemy. Even when their good work has been a success, Mammon grips them and whispers: More money for more work.
Aleister Crowley
Money is just a low priority for me. I’m more interested in good work than a big bank account.
John Lithgow
The good works that really matter require the help of heaven. And the help of heaven requires working past the point of fatigue so far that only the meek and lowly will keep going long enough. The Lord doesn’t put us through this test just to give us a grade; he does it because the process will change us.
Henry B. Eyring
I appreciate good work no matter where it’s coming from.
Do good work and share it with people.
Austin Kleon
I realized that work doesnt beget work. Good work begets work. So I got a lot more patient and stopped worrying about working all the time.
Brady Corbet
I’ve done everything for the wrong reasons. All the good works people credit to me are nothing because I did them expecting God to repay me. I thought if I worked hard enough, God would have to give me what I wanted. The truth is I’ve never served the Lord at all. I was always serving myself.
Francine Rivers
We need art as much as we need good works. You need it like food. You need it for inspiration to keep going on the days that your low. We need each other in that way.
Meryl Streep
Three conditions are necessary for Penance: contrition, which is sorrow for sin, together with a purpose of amendment; confession of sins without any omission; and satisfaction by means of good works.
Thomas Aquinas
I just feel like if I do good work, then people should respect me for the work I do.
Scott Caan
My best film is always my next film. I couldn’t make Chungking Express now, because of the way I live and drink I’ve forgotten how I did it. I don’t believe in film school or film theory. Just try and get in there and make the bloody film, do good work and be with people you love.
Christopher Doyle
Yes, I have done a few things like always, worked immensely hard, always respected people, admired good work, and never let success blow my top off; probably this has worked in my favour.
Guru Randhawa
You have to make enough noise to be cast in the right films, and the best way to make that noise is to do lots of good work.
Randeep Hooda
Good work is not done by ‘humble’ men
G. H. Hardy
There is no prayer or good work so great, so pleasing to God, so useful to us as the Mass.
Lawrence Giustiniani
You can’t be a critic by simply being a griper. One has also to search out the examples of good work.
Wendell Berry
I suspect that these traits-desire, commitment, and good work habits-are important in all facets of our lives. . .
LaVell Edwards
They always threw their arms around and hugged me while crying our Yiddish endearments. Yet none of them believed in God. They believed in social justice, good works, Israel, and Bette Midler. I was nearly thirty before I met a religious Jew.
Anne Lamott
Good work has a snowball effect, it keeps leading to more good work.
Richa Chadha
I want to do more good work. That’s very much my parents’ influence in me.
Yvonne Orji
I know I do good work.
Neena Gupta
I think Christians should be leaders in art, science, philanthropy, charity, and all kinds of good works. We should be good examples for everyone. Unfortunately though, that’s not often the case.
Matt Smith
I always wanted to do good work, but not in order to buy big houses and big cars. I just wanted to be ‘alright’, to have enough money to be able to live on, to go to the cinema when I wanted to, and buy the books I wanted to read.
Douglas Henshall
Naked need is the occasion for God’s giving, not a need adorned with the clean, elegant robes of respectability and good works.
Miroslav Volf
Its only when you are a great actor and are recognised for your good work that you become famous. Unless you are in the news for the wrong reasons!
Christine Lahti
Bob Dylan wrote in his elliptical memoir, Chronicles: Volume One, he was washed up in the 1980s, no longer a commercial success, and no longer putting out good work.
Bob Dylan
Quite frankly, I didn’t become an actor to become a movie star. I have never dreamed about being the most famous person on the planet. I just want to do really good work.
Anne Hathaway
Immortality is a by-product of good work. Masterpieces are not for artists, they’re for critics. Critics can’t even make music by rubbing their back legs together. My message to the world is ‘Let’s swing, sing, shout, make noise! Let’s not mimic death before our time comes! Let’s be wet and noisy!’
Mel Brooks
The old and honorable idea of ‘vocation’ is simply that we each are called, by God, or by our gifts, or by our preference, to a kind of good work for which we are particularly fitted.
Wendell Berry
I think there is no mantra for success. One just has to be positive and keep doing good work. One must
keep moving forward and not think much.
Madhuri Dixit
In public life, differences should not deter us from acknowledging the good work done by others whom we may not agree with.
Amit Shah
When I was young, I liked to be acknowledged in class by little gestures such as a small red star for doing something good. Now that I’m older, I still want to be acknowledged for good work.
Chen Guangbiao
Even the good artisans fell into the same error as the poets; because they were good workmen they thought that they also knew all sorts of high matters, and this defect in them overshadowed their wisdom.
I’m just looking for good work. I just really love acting, and I’d like to jump on something that’s really exciting for me.
Noel Fisher
I just want to be remembered for good work.
Rakshit Shetty
As from a large heap of flowers many garlands and wreaths are made, so by a mortal in this life there is much good work to be done.
Gautama Buddha
The first part of a good work is the will, the second is vigorous effort in the doing of it. God is the author of both. It is, therefore, robbery from God to arrogate anything to ourselves, either in the will or the act.
John Calvin
I am a workaholic. I am very restless, and I am always looking for good work. I don’t act for the heck of it; I do it because I love it.
Disha Patani
When Earth’s last picture is painted and the tubes are twisted and dried, When the oldest colours have faded, and the youngest critic has died, We shall rest, and, faith, we shall need it lie down for an aeon or two, Till the Master of All Good Workmen shall put us to work anew!
Rudyard Kipling
My characters are much more famous than I am, so I don’t crave attention; I just crave working and doing good work. Having a feeling of self-worth.
Kayvan Novak
I personally feel that I should support people who are doing good work and people should also support such good work.
Aamir Khan
In America, we like everyone to know about the good work we’re doing anonymously.
Jay Leno
A relationship with Christ changes your heart. It’s not about your head. It changes your heart. Jesus comes to live in your heart, and even if a person does good works, but they do them without Christ, most of the time, their motives are wrong for why they do them.
Joyce Meyer
Anyone who has ever been able to sustain good work has had at least one person–and often many–who have believed in him or her. We just don’t get to be competent human beings without a lot of different investments from others.
Fred Rogers
What makes a good work of art is something that honors certain traditions and breaks with others.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Having a good director is very important. It’s crucial. When you do good work with a certain director, you want to work with them again, and hopefully vice versa.
Giles Matthey
There is not a point that needs to be dwelt upon more earnestly, repeated more frequently, or established more firmly in the minds of all than the impossibility of fallen man meriting anything by his own best good works. Salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
Ellen G. White
Because knowledge is not for showing off. If I do good work, people should notice me.
Chetan Bhagat
When I’m on the road, a lot of the times – even though people don’t really think it – we walk on heels and the runways are really long! My legs get a pretty good workout just from being on the runway.
Gigi Hadid
In the Old Testament, we are continually told that our good works are not enough, that God has made a provision. This provision is pointed to at every place in the Old Testament.
Tullian Tchividjian
We are not saved by good works; we are saved for good works. The Christian lifestyle is to be a lifestyle of goodness.
Rick Warren
If you do good work, it tends to stick around. People still come up to me and say, ‘The Ref’ is my favorite Christmas movie.’
Denis Leary
Gratitude & joy drove them to do good works before the thought that they had to do them even crossed their mind.
Herman Bavinck
The main thing between you and God is not so much your sins; it’s your damnable good works.
John Gerstner
Whatever good works ye send on before [death]… ye shall find with God.
Elijah Muhammad
Nobody should be allowed to tinker with democracy. We will not discontinue the good works of the past government.
Manmohan Singh
There’s really no reason for any musician, writer, actor to ever take themselves seriously. If you work in a needle exchange, take yourself seriously. You’re doing good work. If you’re involved in hostage negotiations and saving lives, you can have a sense of entitlement.
I think criticism of good work should stop somewhere.
Sharad Pawar
I credit my parents for instilling in me a good work ethic and the sensibility that God serves those best who serve themselves.
Ken Osmond
You can be playing a line some way and the director wants you to change that, or you can disagree. But I always think that the creative conversation between director and actor is what leads to good work.
Ewan McGregor
Though there is antipathy in the human heart to the gospel of Christ, yet when Christians make their good work shine, all admire them. It is when great disparity exists between profession and practice that we secure the scorn of mankind.
David Livingstone
I realized that work doesn’t beget work. Good work begets work. So I got a lot more patient and stopped worrying about working all the time.
Brady Corbet
I know what happiness is, for I have done good work.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Chiru is very supportive of my acting career and always pushes me to do good work. In fact, he expects me to continue my acting career even after the marriage.
Meghana Raj
Twitter vs Instagram is a left brain versus right brain kind of social media device. Twitter is for speaking, whereas Instagram is for your artistry. It’s how we communicate, via visual versus our words. So it’s a good workout, it’s a good brain workout.
Tamlyn Tomita
Man unquestionably has impressive powers… But after all our obedience and good works, we cannot be saved from the effects of our sins without the grace extended by the atonement of Jesus Christ… Man cannot earn his own salvation.
Dallin H. Oaks
I can do pretty good work in various short forms, but anything over 1400 words, I’d be of no use. I like to say I’m a river navigator. I need to see the shore behind the shore.
Peter Schjeldahl
