Labor raises honest sweat;
Leisure puts you into debt.
Labor gives you rye and wheat;
Leisure gives you naught to eat.
Labor makes your riches last;
Leisure gets you nowhere fast.
Labor makes you swell with pride;
Leisure makes you shrink inside.
Labor keeps you fit and prime;
But give me leisure every time.
- Robert Bersohn (1890 - ?): "The Dignity of Labor"
