DEAR Work! Art thou the curse of God?
What must His blessing be?
Elizabeth B. Browning
BE not uneasy, discouraged, or out of humour, because practice falls short of precept in some particulars. If you happen to be beaten, come on again, and be glad if most of your acts are worthy of human nature. Love that to which you return, and do not go like a schoolboy to his master, with an ill will.
LOVE Labour: For if thou dost not want it for Food, thou mayest for Physick. It is wholesome for thy Body, and good for thy Mind. It prevents the Fruits of Idleness, which many times comes of nothing to do, and leads too many to do what is worse than nothing.
THE more we do, the more we can do; the more busy we are, the more leisure we have.
