„The only tired I was, was tired of giving in.“

—  Rosa Parks, Context: People always said that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't true. I was not tired physically, or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in. Rosa Parks: My Story, p. 116, Rosa Parks and James Haskins (1992)

„You get tired when you don’t work. When you clean your house, you don’t get tired, it gives you satisfaction.“

—  Narendra Modi Prime Minister of India 1950
Context: I had started the campaign from 15th September. So now it’s 6–7 months since I started the campaign. I am a laborer and my childhood was very tough and physically I am used to all this. I also do my [y]oga and [p]ranayam. But the important point is that I believe you never get tired by doing work. You get tired when you don’t work. When you clean your house, you don’t get tired, it gives you satisfaction.
