Favorite Labor Day Weekend Quotes

1. "He sees no need for setting apart one day in seven as a holy day, since to him all days are God's."
Author: Charles Eastman
2. "When I have my interview with my God, our conversation will focus on the individuals whose self-esteem I was able to strengthen, whose faith I was able to reinforce, and whose discomfort I was able to assuage—a doer of good, regardless of what assignment I had. These are the metrics of that matter in measuring my life. This realization, which occurred nearly fifteen years ago, guided me every day to seek opportunities to help people in ways tailored to their individual circumstances. My happiness and my sense of worth has been immeasurably improved as a result."
Author: Clayton Christensen
3. "So, it was done, the break was made, in words at least: on July 2, 1776, in Philadelphia, the American colonies declared independence. If not all thirteen clocks had struck as one, twelve had, and with the other silent, the effect was the same.It was John Adams, more than anyone, who had made it happen. Further, he seems to have understood more clearly than any what a momentous day it was and in the privacy of two long letters to Abigail, he poured out his feelings as did no one else:The second day of July 1776 will be the most memorable epocha in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the Day of Deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forever more."
Author: David McCullough
4. "If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day Weekend."

5. "My generation grew up with an imposed myth: the myth of happily ever after -- (and makes you do the same). Whether we wrote this myth or its opposite -- there is no prince, and ever if there is, he never comes, and even if he comes, he never makes you come -- we were still seeing our lives in terms of this myth. Pro-prince or anti-prince, the terms of the debate were defined -- and not by us. We tried to write other myths -- some day my princess will come or I am my own princess so there --but they were all derivative. The armature of plot was the same. We were reacting, not creating. We had not expanded the terms in which we saw our lives."
Author: Erica Jong
6. "This is the ending. Now not day only shall be beloved, but night too shall be beautiful and blessed and all its fear pass away."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
7. "As Ted sat, feeling the evolution of the afternoon, he found himself thinking of Susan. Not the slightly different version of Susan, but Susan herself — his wife — on a day many years ago, before Ted had begun folding up his desire into the tiny shape it had become. On a trip to New York, riding the Staten Island Ferry for fun, because neither one of them had ever done it, Susan turned to him suddenly and said, "Let's make sure it's always like this." And so entwined were their thoughts at that point that Ted knew exactly why she'd said it: not because they'd made love that morning or drunk a bottle of Pouilly-Fuisse at lunch — because she'd felt the passage of time. And then Ted felt it, too, in the leaping brown water, the scudding boats and wind — motion, chaos everywhere — and he'd held Susan's hand and said, "Always. It will always be like this."
Author: Jennifer Egan
8. "Every breath a blessing... Every day a gift!"
Author: Jo Ann V. Glim
9. "He met failure as one day he would probably meet death, with cynical resentment and the courage of a solitary."

Author: Julie Kagawa
11. "I became what I am today at the age of twelve, on a frigid overcast day in the winter of 1975. I remember the precise moment, crouching behind a crumbling mud wall, peeking into the alley near the frozen creek. That was a long time ago, but it's wrong what they say about the past, I've learned, about how you can bury it. Because the past claws its way out. Looking back now, I realize I have been peeking into that deserted alley for the last twenty-six years."
Author: Khaled Hosseini
12. "The Jewish sages also tell us that God dances when His children defeat Him in argument, when they stand on their feet and use their minds. So questions like Anne's are worth asking. To ask them is a very fine kind of human behavior. If we keep demanding that God yield up His answers, perhaps some day we will understand them. And then we will be something more than clever apes, and we shall dance with God."
Author: Mary Doria Russell
13. "I started taking walkswith my children on trash day just to collect the extra proofs ofpurchase. We'd roam the alleys together, stopping at each diaperbox. I learned to swiftly tear the proof of purchase off in a stealthmaneuver I'd refined with practice: pushing the stroller up closeto the box, bending down as if tying my shoe, and ripping off thequalifier, all in less than thirty seconds."
Author: Mary Potter Kenyon

Author: Michel Foucault
15. "On the seventh day God rested in the darkness of the tomb;Having finished on the sixth day all his work of joy and doom.Now the Word had fallen silent, and the water had run dry,The bread had all been scattered, and the light had left the sky.The flock had lost its shepherd, and the seed was sadly sown,The courtiers had betrayed their king, and nailed him to his throne.O Sabbath rest by Calvary, O calm of tomb below,Where the grave-clothes and the spices cradle him we do not know!Rest you well, beloved Jesus, Caesar's Lord and Israel's King,In the brooding of the Spirit, in the darkness of the spring."
Author: N.T. Wright
16. "Winning at Monaco feels unbelievable, because it's such a special race and it's also my home race. My first memories were of watching Ayrton Senna here with his yellow helmet, and one day dreaming to win the Monaco GP."
Author: Nico Rosberg
17. "Here I came to the very edge where nothing at all needs saying, everything is absorbed through weather and the sea, and the moon swam back, its rays all silvered, and time and again the darkness would be broken by the crash of a wave, and every day on the balcony of the sea, wings open, fire is born, and everything is blue again like morning."
Author: Pablo Neruda

Author: Tahereh Mafi
22. "How many of these children would one day be queer? How many would be felled by the acronym? How many by something else? How many would forget the circus? How many would never see it at all? How many would join?"
