Work Quotes | Lowest Work

Your social status, class, finances, and education do not give you the right to judge or scorn various forms of work; especially the lowest forms. Swami Vivekananda emphasizes this point in his book on Karma Yoga.

Swami Vivekananda work quotes about lowest forms of work

Here is the quote in context:

Even the lowest forms of work are not to be despised. Let the man, who knows no better, work for selfish ends, for name and fame; but everyone should always try to get towards higher and higher motives and to understand them. "To work we have the right, but not to the fruits thereof" Leave the fruits alone. Why care for results? If you wish to help a man, never think what that man's attitude should be towards you. If you want to do a great or a good work, do not trouble to think what the result will be.
