Eight hours of work, eight hours of play, eight hours of sleep - eight hours a day! (From the Haymarket era eight hour campaign)

 
Bill Haywood
 

It has been said that the modern world is divided between the hot and hasty pursuit of affairs in the hours of labor, and the no less eager chase of pleasure in the hours of leisure. But even our pleasures are calculated and business like. We measure our enjoyments by the sum expended. Our salons are often little better than bazaars of fashion.

 
Felix Adler
 

There were many things I could do for two or three days and earn enough money to live on for the rest of the month. By temperament Iím a vagabond and a tramp. I donít want money badly enough to work for it. In my opinion itís a shame that there is so much work in the world. One of the saddest things is that the only thing that a man can do for eight hours a day, day after day, is work. You canít eat eight hours a day nor drink for eight hours a day nor make love for eight hours ó all you can do for eight hours is work. Which is the reason why man makes himself and everybody else so miserable and unhappy.

 
William Faulkner
 

Now, on the contrary, when every one is to cultivate himself into man, condemning a man to machine-like labor amounts to the same thing as slavery. If a factory-worker must tire himself to death twelve hours and more, he is cut off from becoming man. Every labor is to have the intent that the man be satisfied. [...] His labor is nothing taken by itself, has no object in itself, is nothing complete in itself; he labors only into another's hands, and is used (exploited) by this other.

 
Max Stirner
 

Taxation of earnings from labor is on a par with forced labor. Seizing the results of someone's labor is equivalent to seizing hours from him and directing him to carry on various activities.
