10. On Saturday Vs. Sunday
It’s a fine line between Saturday night and Sunday morning. ~ Jimmy Buffett

14. On Enjoying Every Moment
Why wait for the weekend to have fun. ~ Loesje

A Sunday well spent brings a week of content. ~ Proverb

25. On Working on Saturdays
On the Sixth Day, God created man, the sort of result you often get when you go in to work on a Saturday. ~ Robert Brault

I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. ~ Audrey Hepburn

Oldtimers, weekends, and airplane landings are alike. If you can walk away from them, they’re successful. ~ Casey Stengel
Many wild and crazy things can happen on a weekend. If we can walk to work on Monday morning and have a good, productive day, it does not matter what we did during the weekend. It is our freedom to decide how we want to spend our free time.
28. On Waiting for Freedom
Fridays are the hardest in some ways: you’re so close to freedom. ~ Lauren Oliver

29. On Relaxation and Fun
Weekends are sacred for me. They’re the perfect time to relax and spend time with family and friends. ~ Marcus Samuelsson
When our work goes through moments of pressure, we feel that it is easy to give up on a weekend to work since we don’t seem to do much on weekends anyway. This is a fallacious way to think. Our minds and our bodies need rest, otherwise, we cannot stay strong for a long time.
30. On Being Unavailable
Unless it’s an emergency, don’t bother me after 6:00 p.m. and on weekends. ~ Merv Griffin
It is allowed to be selfish on the weekends. It is our right not to be available for work calls, meetings, and other types of obligations. If we give our best for five days per week, keeping two days to spend as we please is not only reasonable but also necessary for our well-being.
31. On Choosing to Work
I still work weekends because I like it; I enjoy it. I just don’t care. ~ Edgardo Osorio
There are people for whom weekdays or weekends don’t bring much difference. They are the kind of people who love what they do and who strive for excellence. When our work is our passion, the line between spare time and working time is very blurry.
