No one likes doing chores. In happiness surveys, housework is ranked down there with commuting as activities that people enjoy the least. Maybe that’s why figuring out who does which chores usually prompts, at best, tense discussion in a household and, at worst, outright fighting  (Chores Quotes) Doing your chores like a ninja while your parents pull up the driveway  (Chores Quotes) The taming and domestication of religion is one of the unceasing chores of civilization  (Chores Quotes) One thing I think kids need to do is more chores, and take care of their own rooms. Responsibilities are really important to start them with. If they have animals, they have to feed them and care for them. That’s the only way I think I could do it.  (Chores Quotes) In many developing countries, girls don’t go to school. They stay home. They are at the water wells, bringing water back and forth to the village. Or they are doing chores, preparing meals, farming. Some cultures think girls and women shouldn’t be educated, and those are very often the places where the treatment of women and girls is the worst  (Chores Quotes) It is the woman - nearly always - in spite of all the advances of modern feminism, who still takes responsibility for the bulk of the chores, as well as doing her paid job. This is true even in households where men try to be unselfish and to do their share  (Chores Quotes) Except for the usual house chores, doing income tax, etc., I am free to write whenever I want  (Chores Quotes) I always felt that a marriage works best at a farm... where you’re together and everybody has clear-cut roles; they have chores, ‘you take care of this’ and you know. But it’s hard  (Chores Quotes) Really, I don’t like to do any household chores. There was a time when I loved to cook, but that was when I wasn’t writing books  (Chores Quotes) Southern people are raised with a work ethic. My son is 5 years old and does chores. My mom was a dance teacher, and the training and discipline it takes to be a dancer I’ve carried with me in Hollywood.  (Chores Quotes) I think women - relative to men - tend to feel that they have to do the household chores on top of everything else. This becomes even worse once you have kids. It’s enough to have a full time job; a full time job plus a family is even more.  (Chores Quotes) There are as many attitudes to cooking as there are people cooking, of course, but I do think that cooking guys tend - I am a guilty party here - to take, or get, undue credit for domestic virtue, when in truth cooking is the most painless and, in its ways, ostentatious of the domestic chores.  (Chores Quotes) If everyone is good at something different, assigning chores is easy. If your partner is great at grocery shopping and you are great at the laundry, you’re set. But this isn’t always - or even usually - the case.  (Chores Quotes) Repetition and ritual and their good results come in many forms: changing the oil filter, wiping noses, going to meetings, picking up around the house, washing dishes, checking the dipstick . . . such a round of chores is not a set of difficulties we hope to escape from so that we may do our practice, which will put us on the path. It is our path.  (Chores Quotes) The weakest living creature, by concentrating his powers on a single object, can accomplish good results while the strongest, by dispersing his effort over many chores, may fail to accomplish anything.  (Chores Quotes) I was very academically inclined. But my inner life was in such turmoil. I’d go home and my home life was so miserable that it just felt like I was doing everything that I was supposed to do. I did all my chores, made really good grades, and I was excelling at school, but I wasn’t happy.  (Chores Quotes) My favorite way of getting out of doing chores is by acting like I’m asleep. But it never works.  (Chores Quotes) If a cow walked into this room, I’d probably walk out. I could milk it, but my dad never forced me to do a lot of chores like that, mostly because he loved doing it himself.  (Chores Quotes) When I was a kid, I’d wake up extraordinarily early every morning and turn on the television, scanning for episodes of ‘The Jetsons.’ For some reason, I loved the notion of a future where there would be flying cars, supercomputers, and most of all, robot maids to take care of the chores.  (Chores Quotes) I long for the bulbs to arrive, for the early autumn chores are melancholy, but the planting of bulbs is the work of hope and is always thrilling  (Chores Quotes) Mystery bores me. It chores me. I know what happens and so do you. It’s the machinations that wheel us there that aggravate, perplex, interest, and astound me  (Chores Quotes) If a cow walked into this room, I’d probably walk out. I could milk it, but my dad never forced me to do a lot of chores like that, mostly because he loved doing it himself  (Chores Quotes) More fundamentally, it is a dream that does not die with the onset of manhood: the dream is to play endlessly, past the time when you are called home for dinner, past the time of doing chores, past the time when your body betrays you past time itself  (Chores Quotes) I do chores around the house, but I don’t get an allowance for them. I wash the dishes and sweep the floor... I’m sweeping the floor quite a lot, and my mum always expects me to get a broom and swagger it across the floor all the time  (Chores Quotes) One thing I think kids need to do is more chores, and take care of their own rooms. Responsibilities are really important to start them with. If they have animals, they have to feed them and care for them. That’s the only way I think I could do it  (Chores Quotes) It may be that, while we plodding realists go on, for ever preoccupied with our daily chores, abstracting a microscopic pleasure from each microscopic duty, your true romantic has the truer vision, and beholds, afar off, in all its lurid splendour and terrible proportions, the piquant adventure we call life  (Chores Quotes) What I could really use is an older man. A mentor. One who could tell me how things fit together. He would have asked me to do chores that I felt were meaningless. I would have been impatient and protested, but done them nonetheless. And eventually, after several months of hard labour, I would have realised that there was a deeper meaning behind it all, and that the master had a cunning plan all the time  (Chores Quotes) My mother used to pitch to me and my father would shag balls. If I hit one up the middle close to my mother, I’d have some extra chores to do. My mother was instrumental in making me a pull hitter  (Chores Quotes) One of my chores was to milk the cows, which meant getting up before dawn and going out to that cold dark barn. I didn’t expect to make it all the way to the big leagues; I just had to get way from them damn cows  (Chores Quotes)
