A Quote by Rudyard Kipling on garden, glory, jobs, thankfulness, and work

Then seek your job with thankfulness and work till further orders, If it's only netting strawberries or killing slugs on borders; And when your back stops aching and your hands begin to harden, You will find yourself a partner in the Glory of the Garden.
