Fallon, W. (1993).  AMA Management Handbook.
"Scott and Hart indicate in Organizational America (Houghton Mifflin, 1979) that unfortunately the degree to which we deny our innate human nature may have already thrown open the door to domination of most Americans by organizational imperatives."
Fast, N. (2010).  The Blame Game.
"Our findings showed that blame was contagious, but not among those who felt psychologically secure. So try to foster a chronic sense of inner security in order to reduce the chances that you'll lash out at others."
Feinberg, M. (1995).  Why Smart People Do Dumb Things: Lessons from the New Science of Behavioral Economics.
"Mature people develop—and enjoy—what Thorstein Veblen called 'the instinct of workmanship'. Oliver Wendell Holmes talked about pride in one's work: 'To hammer out as compact and as solid a piece of work as one can, to try to make it first rate.'—this is the goal of all mature people." (p.228)
Ferriss, T. (2007).  The 4-Hour Workweek : Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich.
"The new mantra is this: Work wherever and whenever you want, but get your work done." (p. 209)
Field, T. (1996).  Bully in Sight: How to Predict, Resist, Challenge and Combat Workplace Bullying.
"Stress can be defined, albeit rather vaguely, as any form of physical, emotional, or psychological pressure, and its endemic presence in the modern workplace probably owes much to insecurity and coercion.
An alternative view of stress is a consequence of the degree to which people feel they lack control of themselves, their situation, and their life. If a person feels they cannot influence or control events in their life, they will feel anxious, and hence feel insecure and afraid." (p. 174)
Finley, G., Howard V., & Arnaz D. (2002).  The Secret of Letting Go.
"A man who doesn't know his true identity does not know that he really doesn't know. The fact that he is confused, frightened and still searching for himself remains almost totally unsuspected by him, because he has unknowingly assumed a false identity.

This temporary, false self feels real because it is animated and driven along by the man's reactions as he seeks himself. The fact that this lower nature is driven does not mean it is alive. A bulldozer rolls along too, but it cannot see or understand why it smashes into things. It is a machine. So, in many ways, is the false self." (p. 34)

Fishman, K. D. (1982).  The Computer Establishment.
"Computing is a technology with many paths to follow; at each fork there is vigorous dissension among the brightest practitioners. We need to preserve that dissension, to offer scientists and businessmen a reasonable chance to pursue whatever goal seems promising and customers the greatest possible opportunity to choose their supplier." (p. 408)
Fitter, F., & Gulas B. (2002).  Working in the Dark: Keeping Your Job While Dealing With Depression.
"People with depression can feel horribly isolated in the workplace simply because depression is barely spoken about—and when it is, it's usually as a liability or weakness rather than as an illness." (p. x)
Flory, C. D. (1967).  Managers for tomorrow.
"The motivations for work that stem from the desire to hang on and protect ourselves from real or imaginary attack have one common core—the direction of the motivational force is negative. The aim is to avoid or minimize trouble. Work under such conditions is at best burdensome and at its worst approaches the nightmare fringes of terror. Short-range output may be high, but the endurance of the worker is as yet undetermined." (p. 134)
