  • “A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation. He simply pursues his vision of excellence and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself he always appears to be doing both.” ~ L. P. Jacks
