Splash du Jour: Friday

It ought to be made possible for everyone to earn his living by doing work that is of intrinsic value and that is felt to be such by the worker himself. At present, most people do their work in order to earn the maximum remuneration and not for the sake of the value of the work itself. The profit motive ought no longer to be given top priority. But this most desirable change of motivation can be brought about only by a change of heart.
-- Arnold J Toynbee (1889-1975)

Have a great Friday!

"Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy. . ."
-- Kahlil Gibran

Very applicable quotation. Thank you.
Sadly, I work with much "distaste" every single day!
