Good Things Require Hard Work and Love…

Quotes and Notes # 309, September 9

It takes hard work and love for a lot of things.

It takes hard work and love for a lot of things.

“Gardens are not made
By singing ‘Oh, how beautiful!’
And sitting in the shade.”—Rudyard Kipling—

  • It takes hard work and love of the task to build a flower garden.
  • It takes the same thing for a relationship.
  • It takes the same thing for your personal happiness.

A story I heard fifty years ago was about an ancient king who gathered all of the wise men in the world and said to them, “Go out and find all of the wisdom in the world and bring it to me.”
Ten years later, the wise men returned with 100 volumes of writing.
“That’s too hard to read,” said the King, “You will have to reduce it.”

Ten years later, the wise men returned with ten volumes.
“That’s too long,” said the King, I want something short to read.”

Ten years later the wise men returned. Their spokesman said to the king, “Oh, Great One, we have reduced all of the wisdom of the world to one sentence. Will that be all right?”
The king was delighted and said, “Wonderful. And what is the sentence?”

The wise man smiled, looked at the king and said,
“There ain’t no free lunch.”

Today, it would be well to share a smile with a wise man or even a wizard.
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
