“There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither.”
Virtues are behaviors that show high moral standards. Two virtues that author Alan Cohen mentions in today’s quote that we must always adhere to are those of work and rest. It is my hope that we work for something that we are passionate for, to stay healthy and to continually improve our own well being. We rest to recover. Recover both mentally and physically. Both are necessary and it is imperative to we ensure that they both are utilized and never overlooked. Both do indeed have their benefits but can also have it’s detriments if they are ignored. Let us all be mindful of this and the importance of finding that all important life balance in incorporating both.
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards defining/refining your own moral compass?
