“Work for a cause, not for applause”

A popular inspirational poster is:

Work for a cause, not for applause.
Live life to express, not to impress.
Don’t strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt.
-- Author unknown


“We should work for a cause not applause” was cited in October 2007. “Work for a cause & not for applause.Live life to Express & not to Impress.Don’t strive to make ur presence noticed,jus make ur absence Felt.” was cited on Twitter on February 9, 2009. “Michael Knight” is credited for the lines in a 2013 book, but this name is not credited anywhere else.

Dear Friends,
I would like to assert once again I do not aprove of washing dirty linen in Public, what I would like to clarify once again is that if anybody has any issues about the Communidade they can come to the Communidade office on every Friday of the month or last Sunday of the month and ask questions and inspect documents at will instead of making heroes or martyrs of themselves . We should work for a cause not applause............
