Burden quotes (11)

The terrible burden of having nothing to do.
Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux   Category: Burden

It has been well said that no man ever sank under the burden of the day. It is when tomorrow's burden is added to the burden of today that the weight is more than a man can bear. Never load yourselves so my friends. If you find yourselves so loaded at least remember this: it is your own doing not God's. He begs you to leave the future to Him and mind the present.
George Macdonald   Category: Burden

No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else.
Charles Dickens   Category: Burden

INJUSTICE n. A burden which of all those that we load upon others and carry ourselves is lightest in the hands and heaviest upon the back.
Ambrose Gwinett Bierce   Category: Burden

Whatever our personal burden or cross to bear might be we are here. We live! We Learn! The Grand Adventure is under way for us. Terrible as our trials might be we are blessed and not abandoned by God.
Elaine Cannon   Category: Burden

None knows the weight of anothers burden.
George Herbert   Category: Burden

A prosperous fool is a grievous burden.
Aeschylus   Category: Burden

Americans indeed all freemen remember that in the final choice a soldiers pack is not so heavy a burden as a prisoners chains.
General Dwight David Eisenhower   Category: Burden

Whether a man is burdened by power or enjoys power; whether he is trapped by responsibility or made free by it; whether he is moved by other people and outer forces or moves them this is of the essence of leadership.
Theodore H. White   Category: Burden

Let every nation know whether it wishes us well or ill that we shall pay any price bear any burden meet any hardship support any friend oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy   Category: Burden

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.
William Edgar Borah   Category: Burden
