A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play, his labour and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself he always seems to be doing both. Enough for him that he does it well.

LP Jacks in his 1932 book “Education through Recreation” according to a site called QuoteInvestigator which I found after googling the source after browsing Mobocracy’s Tumblr Likes which listed Clays reblog of Bryce’s post which doesnt exist anymore but which had a similar quote and credited a one Wilfred A. Peterson

I look forward to the day when google digitizes LP Jacks’ book so I can actually see the source myself.


This quote eloquently describes my current life mantra.
