A Quote by James A. Michener on work, play, excellence, personal-development, and mastery

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play....  He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leavaing others to decide whether he is working or playing.  To him he's always doing both.

A Quote by Loren Eiseley on poet, moth, alien universe, unknown, play, invisibility, and passing through

While I was sitting one night with a poet friend watching a great opera performed in a tent under arc lights, the poet took my arm and pointed silently. Far up, blundering out of the night, a huge Cecropia moth swept past from light to light over the posturings of the actors. “He doesn’t know,” my friend whispered excitedly. “He’s passing through an alien universe brightly lit but invisible to him. He’s in another play; he doesn’t see us. He doesn’t know. Maybe it’s happening right now to us.

Loren Eiseley (1907 - 1977)

A Quote by James Albert Michener on masters, living, art, work, play, love, and religion

The masters in the art of living make little distinction between their work and their play, their labor and their leisure, their minds and their bodies, their information, their recreation, their love and their religion. They hardly know which is which, they simply pursue their vision of excellence at whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing.

A Quote by Joao Magueijo on physics, work, cosmology, cosmologist, theoretical physics, clarity, mind, silence, yin, play, travel, explorer, and vision

Thinking can be lateral or "sweaty". For the latter you're better off in an office and following a routine but for the former you have to be "out of your mind", so to speak. So although I recognize the merits of hard work, I find that my work goes stale if I don't go off wandering around the world every few weeks. My friends think I'm a gipsy, but that's when I do "part 1" of my best work.

A Quote by George Orwell on work and play

in

But what is work and what is not work? Is it work to dig, to carpenter, to plant trees, to fell trees, to ride, to fish, to hunt, to feed chickens, to play the piano, to take photographs, to build a house, to cook, to sew, to trim hats, to mend motor bicycles? All of these things are work to somebody, and all of them are play to somebody. There are in fact very few activities which cannot be classed either as work or play according as you choose to regard them.

George Orwell (1903 - 1950)

A Quote by Joseph W. Meeker on play, comic, survival, animals, comedy, stories, and storytelling

All of the elements of the comic way tend to spread to others, insinuating joy where it was previously absent. Conversation has a way of leaping among persons, as it does at parties and celebratory gatherings. Storytelling always begets storytelling. It is difficult to watch others at play without wanting to join them. This is not only a human phenomenon, for researchers have consistently noted that animals at play are often imitated by other animals. So wherever it is possible to initiate a playful activity, it will have a good chance of replicating itself through other parts of the system.

A Quote by Anne Morriss on irony, commitment, liberation, work, play, and love

The irony of commitment is that it's deeply liberating ~ in work, in play, in love.

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
