Never underestimate or undervalue the satisfaction and importance of a hard day's work. Often time we all dream of not working, of just sitting on the beach drinking Mai Tais until the sun goes down. Rest and relaxation is an important part of life, but it can not be the only things that we do. We find happiness as we find progress and growth in life. Hard work and work worth doing, if a proven path of inner growth.
I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being.
