First Paycheck Quotes By William J. Clinton

I want our nation to take responsibility to make sure that every single child can look out the window in the morning and see a whole community getting up and going to work.

First Paycheck Quotes By Timothy Keller

[Look at] the chair you are lounging in. . . . Could you have made it for yourself? . . . How [would you] get, say, the wood? Go and fell a tree? But only after first making the tools for that, and putting together some kind of vehicle to haul the wood, and constructing a mill to do the lumber and roads to drive on from place to place? In short, a lifetime or two to make one chair! . . . If we . . . worked not forty but one-hundred-forty hours per week we couldn't make ourselves from scratch even a fraction of all the goods and services that we call our own. [Our] paycheck turns out to buy us the use of far more than we could possibly make for ourselves in the time it takes us to earn the check. . . . Work . . . yields far more in return upon our efforts than our particular jobs put in. . . . — Timothy Keller

First Paycheck Quotes By Oprah Winfrey

By the time I was 17, I was working in radio, making $100 a week. And that's when I made my peace with money.

Then do it! — Oprah Winfrey

First Paycheck Quotes By Robert T. Kiyosaki

Most people have a price. And they have a price because of human emotions named fear and greed. First, the fear of being without money motivates us to work hard, and then once we get that paycheck, greed or desire starts us thinking about all the wonderful things money can buy. A pattern is then set: get up, go to work, pay bills, get up, go to work, pay bills ... Their lives are then run forever by two emotions, fear and greed. Offer them more money, and they continue the cycle by also increasing their spending. This is what I call the Rat Race. — Robert T. Kiyosaki
