A Quote by Kenyon Cox on body, goal, money, soul, work, paint, sing, carve, starve, and glory

Work thou for pleasure, paint or sing or carve.
The thing  thou lovest, though the body starve!

Who works for glory misses oft the goal;
 Who works for money coins his very soul
 Work for the work's sake, then, and it may be,
That this thing shall be added unto thee.
