Work

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. (Margaret Atwood, Canadian poet)

Writing as a poet, Atwood uses picturesque language to make a point more clearly than a simple statement in prose might. Basically, she’s saying, you should always work hard so that at day’s end something of value may be the result. If you come to quitting time and don’t feel you’ve accomplished much, just be sure you’ve given it your best and wait for good results.

So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. People who work hard sleep well, whether they eat little or much (Ecclesiastes 2:24; 5:12).
