You must consider Work such as a humanly action not such as slavery and exploitation

When the boss gives you a work or orders you to do a work, You have to consider that you have power. Man is different from animal because of his job. Perhaps the boss has ordered you but for you, it's an occasion to show that you can create, that you can invent, that you can transform something & you act. Your work shows your capacities & your power. Work helps man to master events and to master himself ( Easy Philosophy - ATLAS Editions 1996 )

The experience of the race shows that you get your most important education not through books but through your work. You are developed by your daily task, or else demoralized by it, as by nothing else ( Anna Garlin Spencer )




Enjoy your life without comparing it with another
( Condorcet )




When you want to do something, do it now !
Perhaps tomorrow it will be too late

The only work that we can begin by the top
is to dig a hole

Commit to the Lord whatever you do
and your plans will succeed

Make your life a dream, and the dream a reality
( Antoine de Saint-Exupéry )




Don't ask what your country can do for you,
ask what you can do for your country
( John Fitzgerald Kennedy )




No one can feel responsible and despairing
( Antoine de Saint-Exupéry )




Make it your target to live a quiet life
to mind your own business,
and to work with your hands
( 1 Thessalonians 4 : 11 )

That means : God wants that
we are satisfied with our destiny and
He advises us to satisfy our needs only by our own work





From the beginning, man has already a lot of responsibilities ( Genesis ). He received the order to work the garden and to take care of it ( Genesis 2 : 15 ) = « The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it & take care of it ». So we must work !

Tiredness and sufferances came after ( Genesis 3 : 17b ) = « ... Cursed is the ground because of you, man, through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life ... ».


Success at Work, Job, Christian thought, Webmaster Ravo.Madagascar

X is a Personnel Manager for a big multinational company. He is 50 years old and people respect him and envy his position. He is clever at business and he knows his job, but he realizes that he has forgotten something very important to be really happy : he has forgotten his family & his spiritual value. He thinks that he has worked hard and he has done much works, but he has never been truly happy. How to have success and to be always carefree at the same time ? It's not to try to work hard, it's not to try to work with a strong will, it's just to receive the Grace of God.

" Meaningless ! Meaningless ! " Says the Teacher. " Completely meaningless ! Everything is meaningless ! " What does man gain from all his hard work at which he toils under the sun ? ( Solomon - Ecclesiastes 1 : 2, 3 ) - ( The Good Seed - 2003 )




Never work just for money or for power.
They won't save your soul or help you sleep at night
( Marian Wright Edelman )

« The heavens declare the glory of God ; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech ; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other ; nothing is hidden from its heat » Psalm 19 : 1 - 6

HUMOR SECTION - Let's talk about WORK


1- An assistant seller presented a vacuum cleaner to a lady.
Before doing his demonstration, he put a lot of dust on the moquette and said with enthusiasm :
- I will eat all dust that my vacuum cleaner doesn't suck up !
The lady went to the kitchen, took a spoon and gave it to the assistant seller.
- Enjoy your food ! We don't have electricity since 2 days !!!


2- A man who wants to have his own garden but who doesn't know about it went to a bookshop and asked a book which is full of advice. The seller gave him one and said :
- This is the best ! Read it so you will finish the half of your work !
- Ah ! Good ! Very good ! ... Give me two of it please !


3- A man who buys and sells old bottles and old clothes arrived at an old lady.
- Do you have old bottles of wine or old bottles of bier Maam ?
- Do I look like an alcoholic !? Answered the furious lady
- Oh ! I'm sorry Maam ! Perhaps do you have old bottles of vinegar ? ...


4- In the States, a lawyer (a barrister) put on his plate : two questions for 2000 USD.
A man was amazed, so he opened the barrister's door and asked him :
- 1000 USD for one question !!! Is it not too expensive ?
- No ! It isn't ! ... And what is your second question ? ...


5- A fat lady walked at the zoo, stopped near a hippopotamus and asked the zoo guard :
- This hippopotamus, is it male or female ?
- Madam, this question interests only hippopotamus !


6- I'm sorry told the surgeon to his patient after his operation. I have to operate on you again.
Why !!?? Answered the patient.
- Because I've forgotten my rubber glove in your stomach.
- It's not a reason ! I give you money to buy new rubber gloves ! Here and bye !!


7- Why are you here ? Asked the surgeon to another patient.
- Because I prefer cotton socks than wollen socks doctor.
- Stupid ! Me too, I prefer cotton socks than wollen socks !

8- A man couldn't sleep at night & went to a doctor.

You will see, it's very efficient !
- I've already tried it doctor, but I'm a boxer, so at nine I stand up !


9- It's a shame that the only thing a man can do for eight hours a day is work. He can't eat for eight hours ; he can't drink for eight hours ; he can't make love for eight hours. The only thing a man can do for eight hours is work ( William Faulkner )


10- We get what we search ! Listen to this story. Two men were sent in Africa to try to sell shoes.

The first one said in his telegram : « I go back immediately, there is no chance here because nobody wear shoes ! »
