“There is no substitute under the heavens for productive labor….Most of us are inherently lazy. We would rather loaf than work….But it is work that spells the difference in the life of a man or woman.” (Ensign, Aug. 1992, p. 4 as taken from Latter-day Commentary on the Book of Mormon compiled by K. Douglas Bassett, p. 102)

F. David Stanley

“Cutting trees is more important than thinking about cutting trees or planning to cut trees. We are becoming the world experts in meeting, thinking, planning, and organizing about working the work, but we need to do it. We need to work. While many are sitting and saying and even shouting great swelling words of marginal effectiveness, hard-working Latter-day Saints will always be found diligently doing and delivering potatoes to their neighbors. Contrary to the belief of many, ‘Say’ and ‘Sit’ will never replace ’Diligently Do.’…My young friends of the Aaronic Priesthood, say less and do more. Get it done.” (Ensign, May 1993, p. 45 as taken from Latter-day Commentary on the Book of Mormon compiled by K. Douglas Bassett, p. 103)

Some insightful quotes on the dilemma faced by the individual who will not work are as follows:

“Doing nothing is one of the hardest of all jobs. When you get tired, you can’t rest! You are in bondage when you refuse to work.” Henry Taylor
“Dodging work is the hardest work of all and yields the poorest results.” Author Unknown (James H. Patterson Quote Book #20, p. 53)
