"Sometimes it’s important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it’s essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow."

– Douglas Pagels, These Are the Gifts I’d Like to Give You

"Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop."

– Ovid

"The man who doesn’t relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on."

– Elbert Hubbard

"The end of labor is to gain leisure."

– Aristotle

"If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day Weekend."

– Doug Larson
