“We are on strike, we, the men of the mind.

We are on strike against self-immolation. We are on strike against the creed of unearned rewards and unrewarded duties. We are on strike against the dogma that the pursuit of one's happiness is evil. We are on strike against the doctrine that life is guilt.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Alfie Kohn
“Some who support [more] coercive strategies assume that children will run wild if they are not controlled. However, the children for whom this is true typically turn out to be those accustomed to being controlled— those who are not trusted, given explanations, encouraged to think for themselves, helped to develop and internalize good values, and so on. Control breeds the need for more control, which is used to justify the use of control.”
Alfie Kohn, Punished by Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A's, Praise and Other Bribes

Leo Tolstoy

Alfie Kohn
“Like any other tool for facilitating the completion of a questionable task, rewards offer a "how" answer to what is really a "why" question.”
Alfie Kohn, Punished by Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A's, Praise and Other Bribes

“Christ taught that there was a difference between divine love and human love. Human love depends upon the one who is loved. If you meet my needs, if I find you attractive, and if our personalities are compatible, I will love you. Understandingly, human love changes...
In contrast, divine love depends upon the lover; divine love says I can go on loving you even if you have stopped loving me. Divine love is based on a decision that continues even if the one who is loved changes. Divine love says, "You cannot make me stop loving you."
In this context, read Christ's words: "But i say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you" (Luke 6:27-28). This kind of love even loves enemies. And if we want to know whether such tough love will really be worth the cost, Christ continues, "But love your enemies, and do good , and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and evil" (v.35). Your reward will be great!
So often we pray, "O God, make me godly." We want to be like God. Then God sends a difficult person into our life - perhaps a quarrelsome coworker - and we complain, insisting that He remove the "thorn" from us. But these trials are given to is that we might become "godly".
You have it from Christ Himself. "Your reward shall be great!"
- from "Your Eternal Reward" by Erwin Lutzer”
Erwin Lutzer

Prem Jagyasi
“Always look at all the award not so much as a symbol of your personal success, but as a reminder of the responsibility that you have towards the world, you live in.”
Dr Prem Jagyasi

“Choices are made by thoughtful action..results are either the rewards we give our self or the discomfort we share with others.”

Dennis Prager
“Regarding the afterlife, any belief in a just God must mean the good are rewarded and the evil are punished. It is axiomatic that if there is a God and if that God is just, there is ultimate justice. And since such justice rarely exists in this world—just think of young children murdered in terrorist attacks or mistreated by abusive parents—ultimate justice must take place in the next world. A Talmudic passage teaches, ‘There is no reward for the commandments [mitzvot] in this world,’ meaning God does not reward the faithful in this world.
That does not mean there aren’t rewards for leading a religious life in this world. There certainly are. But they differ from rewards in the next world in that they are not dispensed by God; they are intrinsic to leading a good religious life. The reward for keeping God’s laws is in the keeping of the laws.
If one wants additional, divine, rewards for keeping one, some, or all of God’s laws, it can only mean that individual finds little, or nothing, intrinsically rewarding in the keeping of the law(s).”
Dennis Prager, The Rational Bible: Exodus

“People who are here for rewards, fame and money will ultimately fail. People who are here for love, meaning and people will ultimately win.”
Maxime Lagacé

“Take that risky leap of faith and damn the consequences because there really are hardly any consequences, only great rewards!”

“Do it for love, not rewards.”
Maxime Lagacé

Virginia Woolf
“I have sometimes dreamt that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards- their crowns, their laurels , their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble-the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say , not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms, ' Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them here. They have loved reading.”
Virginia Woolf, How Should One Read a Book?

Tori Amos
“Certain relationships can just wear you down. So you mirror or reflect back- kind of like a pet, reflecting back what its master wants. This can seem easier in the moment: Whatever it takes to back this person's vibe down. The master does not have to be male. Sometimes he is, but not always. Whoever the master is, they know this, that people can be trained. Either with praise, shame, the fear of failure, or the fear of being gaslighted, the technique is a relationship of rewards and punishments. There is no unconditional love here. No, this kind of relationship is all about the master's conditions. Not joint respectful mutual conditions, but their conditions.”
Tori Amos, Resistance: A Songwriter's Story of Hope, Change, and Courage
