C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Toil
 
  Bodily labor alleviates the pain of the mind; whence arises the happiness of the poor.
La Rochefoucauld.    
  1
  Toil and pleasure, in their natures opposite, are yet linked together in a kind of necessary connection.
Livy.    
  2
        He chooses best, whose labor entertains
His vacant fancy most; the toil you hate
Fatigues you soon, and scarce improves your limbs.
Armstrong.    
  3
  Toil to some is happiness, and rest to others. This man can only breathe in crowds, and that man only in solitudes.
Bulwer-Lytton.    
  4
        Toil, and be strong; by toil the flaccid nerves
Grow firm, and gain a more compacted tone:
The greener juices are by toil subdued,
Mellow’d, and subtilis’d; the vapid old
Expell’d, and all the rancor of the blood.
Armstrong.    
  5
        The body  *  *  *
Much toil demands; the lean elastic less.
While winter chills the blood and binds the veins,
No labors are too hard; by those you ’scape
The slow diseases of the torpid year,
Endless to name.
Armstrong.
