Work is love made visible.
And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste,
it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the
gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a
bitter bread that feeds but half man's hunger.
And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your
grudge distils a poison in the wine.
And if you sing though as angels, and love not the
singing, you muffle man's ears to the voices of the day and
voices of the night.
-- Kahlil Gibran from 'The Prophet'
