work hard play hard

A quote from L. P. Jacks in his book Education through Recreation (1932), has been an inspiration for me in my quest to find the "balance."

"A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both."

At last. I knew someone was home. I discovered though, that playing too hard can catch up to you. But as the young adolescent said to the penguin, "I'll quit when I need glasses".
