QOD

The Patriot Post
Founders' Quote Daily

"This gave me occasion to observe, that when Men are employ'd
they are best contented. For on the Days they work'd they were
good-natur'd and chearful; and with the consciousness of having
done a good Days work they spent the Evenings jollily; but on the
idle Days they were mutinous and quarrelsome, finding fault with
their Pork, the Bread, and in continual ill-humour."

-- Benjamin Franklin (Autobiography, 1771)

(1447)

Russ,
I would I have to disagree with this statement. You always seem so happy when you're on the blogosphere.

Dax,

LOL. That is because I am working! Yea, sometimes I disagree also, but after all, we have objective truth that tells us work is good. I think the problem is with our hearts, not the work itself. (Except maybe for that show about Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel. Whoa!)
