Quotes on Work and Calling

“God has always led me of himself – The first idea I can recollect when I was a child was a desire to nurse the sick. My day dreams were all of hospitals and I visited them whenever I could. I never communicated it to anyone, it would have been laughed at; but I thought God had called me to serve Him in that way.” — Florence Nightingale, Curriculum Vitae, 1851

“I felt as though I was about to fill a space in the world that was meant for me and had long awaited me, a mold, as it were, made for me alone, but discerned by me only this very moment.” — Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Oak and the Calf.

“If a man love the labor of any trade, apart from any question of success or fame, then God has called him.” — Robert Louis Stevenson
