Art is long, life is short. The busiest man finds the most leisure.
Leisure should be refreshment; it should send a man out with fresh spirits to battle with the problems of life. Sometimes this freshness comes not from doing anything, but by filling ones mind with fresh springs of beauty. He should recreate his own source of inspiration and make his own mind a richer and fuller treasure house. This is the true use of leisure. Joyce Miller
