"Hard work spotlights the character of people; some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all."

- Sam Ewing

I've always loved this one. I'm fortunate that I was taught a strong work ethic as a kid. As such, I'm one to "turn up my sleeves." I am constantly amazed (and sometimes frustrated) by the number of people who fit the other two categories. Life is hard work and some people just don't want to do what it takes.

    I was raised with what was deemed a "Protestant Work Ethic."

    I was taught to ALWAYS show up and give at least 8 hours of work for 8 hours of pay.
