Always you have been told that work is a curse and labour a misfortune.
But I say to you that when you work you fulfil a
part of earth’s furtherst dream, assigned to you when
that dream was born,
And in keeping yourself with labour you are
in truth loving life,
And so love life through labour is to be intimate
with life’s inmost secret.
Gibran Kahlil Gibran - The prophet
