Job Quotes

Four of the best book quotes from Job
  1. #1
    “Like a good servant, Job counted the will of his Lord his great possession, by obedience to which his soul was enriched; nor did it grieve him to lose, while yet living, those goods which he must shortly leave at his death.”
  2. #2
    “Your job isn’t to find these ideas but to recognize them when they show up.”
  3. #3

  4. #4
    “He was just a man doing a job. A job whose primary attribute was self-restraint and self-composure, not for his own sake, but for those whom he led by his example.”
