Signs of the Times

[Sir R. Baden-Powell, as quoted in Great Thoughts, London, England]

It is not merely rest to the body and brain which you gain on your Sunday that will reinvigorate you for work on Monday, but the moral stimulant that will have imbibed with your spiritual refreshment on that day. This will be yours if you have sought for it; and it will carry you through the week's work on a higher plane and with the widened outlook, which will make it a joyous game of self-expression instead of a dreary task imposed upon a self-pitying slave. So play up and play the game! Play in your place, not for yourself, but for your side, for your country, for your kind. Then will you look forward to your Monday morning, not with distaste, but with eager zest for the fresh adventure that it brings.
