An inspirational work quote seemed to be an insurmountable challenge.  For most of us, work isn't very inspirational at all.  It's just work.  The worker who can find an inspiration in her daily life is truly blessed.

Then I thought of the millions of people who have come to America to work, to earn better lives for themselves and their children.  Many of them succeeded beyond their wildest imaginations. The notion of "inspirational work quote" began to take on meaning.

So how do we find that success?  Let's take a look at an inspirational work quote or two and see what the experts say.

Eddie Cantor
