in the heart of clover bloom





Work is like other good things in that it should not be indulged in to excess, but a reasonable amount that is of value to one's self and to the world, as is any honest, well-directed labor, never need descend into drudgery.
 
It is a tonic and an inspiration and a reward unto itself. For the sweetness of life lies in usefulness like honey deep in the heart of clover bloom.

-Laura Ingalls Wilder, Farm Journalist
