The trouble with the rat race is that if you win, you’re still a rat.
Most of us have jobs that are too small for our spirit. Our real imaginations have not been challenged.
Nora Watson, Working
When people go to work, they shouldn’t have to leave their hearts at home.
The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation.
Hard work is as damn near overrated as monogamy.
There’s no end to what you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.
The secret of success is to offend the greatest number of people.
George Bernard Shaw

Here is my favorite quote of all time about work from Office Space:
Peter Gibbons: The thing is, Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care.
Bob Porter: Don't... don't care?
Peter Gibbons: It's a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my ass off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don't see another dime, so where's the motivation? And here's something else, Bob: I have eight different bosses right now.
Bob Slydell: I beg your pardon?
Peter Gibbons: Eight bosses.
Bob Slydell: Eight?
Peter Gibbons: Eight, Bob. So that means that when I make a mistake, I have eight different people coming by to tell me about it. That's my only real motivation is not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job. But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired.
