Sunday Dinner: Back to Work


“Your purpose in life

is to find your purpose

and give your whole heart and soul to it”


Gautama Buddha



“Out of clutter,

find simplicity.”


Albert Einstein



“Without ambition one starts nothing.

Without work one finishes nothing.

The prize will not be sent to you.

You have to win it.”


Ralph Waldo Emerson



“A man is not idle

because he is absorbed in thought.

There is visible labor

and there is invisible labor.”


Victor Hugo



“Hide not your talents, they for use were made,
What’s a sundial in the shade?”


Benjamin Franklin



“This is the real secret of life –

– to be completely engaged

with what you are doing in the here and now.

And instead of calling it work,

realize it is play.”


Alan Watts



“There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony.

There is time for work.

And time for love.

That leaves no other time.”


Coco Chanel

but the gift is nothing without work.”
