Finding the Divine in the Details

Stronger than friction



“It is not work that kills men, it is worry.

Work is healthy; you can hardly put more on a man than he can bear.

But worry is rust upon the blade.

It is not movement that destroys the machinery, but friction.”

                                                                                                  ~ Henry Ward Beecher

What helps work feel healthy?

What is the rust upon my blade?

How does real movement take me beyond friction?
