FREE men freely work.
Whoever fears God, fears to sit at ease.
Elizabeth B. Browning
NOTHING is so unendurable to men as to be entirely at rest, without desires, without business, without amusement, without study. He then feels his nothingness, his loneliness, his insufficiency, his dependence, his powerlessness, his emptiness.
WE are not sent into this world to do anything into which we cannot put our hearts. We have certain work to do for our bread, and that is to be done strenuously, other work to do for our delight, and that is to be done heartily, neither is to be done by halves or shifts, but with a will, and what is not worth this effort is not to be done at all.
ALL men if they work not as in a Great Task master’s eye, will work wrong, work unhappily for themselves and you.
