"They used to say that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and it is just so.  Rest is all right in its place, no doubt, and there is a time to rest as well as a time to work.  To make this a happy new year, we must find the true place for each and look out and not fall into the ruts.  No need to keep the mind all the time on the stretch, but when the time comes to work, let us throw life and spirit into it, and do with our might what the hands find to do.  Set about the right thing, do it well, and keep at it.  Some folks go through the world with eyes wide open, and some as if they were half asleep.  Let us learn how to live, how to think, how to act, learn to use the eye and the ear, and to keep every sense awake." ~Farmer’s Calendar January 1883~
