Your Work – Lew Coulton
Try to work for the joy of your work,
Whether you write, or you paint, or you carve,
Try to work in the thing you love doing
Though at first you may nearly starve.

Has coin in his very soul,
And he who works only for glory,
Aims at an empty Goal.

But he who works for the love of his work
And the satisfaction that it brings,
May find that fame and fortune comes
In the normal course of things
