Lucy Larcom Quote

“Labor, in itself, is neither elevating or otherwise. It is the laborer's privilege to ennoble his work by the aim with which he undertakes it, and by the enthusiasm and faithfulness he puts into it.”

Mike, Norwalk

Yes, excellent observation, I like it.!

Robert Edwards, Somewhere in Europe

A bit cumbersome, but intent is good....

E Archer, NYC

Well said, not cumbersome at all, logically and grammatically correct. But I suppose "You get out of it what you put into it" could also suffice. ;-)

Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown

The honest hardworking man always gives it his best effort to improve the world's circumstances.  It is his duty.
