Friend Joe sends me this Haitian proverb from an anthology of travel writing:
“If work is such a good thing, how come the rich haven’t grabbed it for themselves?”
Wise words. Or rather they would be if it weren’t for the fact that the modern rich apparently do work quite hard.
We live in strange times. In a world of work worship, not even the rich are free.
If you’re rich, do yourself a favour and take the rest of your life off. Some Haitians might be a bit sarcastic about your decision, but it’ll be worth it.
