A new and more glorious gift of power compensates for each worthy expenditure, so that it is by work that man carves his way to that measure of power which will fit him for his destiny, and leave him nearest God. 5963 J. G. Holland : Plain Talks on Familiar Subjects.
III. Work and Play. Man's record upon this wild world is the record of work, end of work alone. 5964 J. G. Holland : Plain Talks on Familiar Subjects.
III. Work and Play. No work that God sets a man to do - no work to which God has especially adapted a man's powers - can properly be called either menial or mean. 5965 J. G. Holland : Plain Talks on Familiar Subjects.
I. Self-Help. Patience, persistence, and power to do are only acquired by work. 5966 J. G. Holland : Plain Talks on Fainiliar Subjects.
III. Work and Play. Work is the means of living, but it is not living. 5967 J. G. Holland : Plain Talks on Familiar Subjects.
V. High Life and Low Life. Work was made for man, and not man for work. Work is man's servant, both in its results to the worker and the world. Man is not work's servant, save as an almost universal perversion has made him such. 5968 J. G. Holland : Plain Talks on Familiar Subjects.
III. Work and Play. Work, according to my feeling, is as necessary as eating and sleeping. Even those who do nothing which a reasonable man would call labor imagine themselves to be doing something, and there is no one who would willingly be thought quite an idler in the world. 5969

Friend. Vol. i. No. 73. (Catharine M. A.

Ch. 7, Sec. 9. We are not sent into this world to do anything into which we cannot put our hearts. We have certain work to do for our bread, and that is to be done strenuously; other work to do for our delight, and that is to be done heartily; neither is to be done by halves or shifts, but with a will; and what is not worth this effort is not to be done at all. 5971 Ruskin: The Seven Lamps of Architecture.
Ch. 5, Sec. 24.
Genius, without work, is certainly a dumb oracle; and it is unquestionably true that the men of the highest genius have invariably been found to be amongst the most plolding, hardworking, and intent men, their chief characteristic apparently consisting simply in their power of laboring more intensely and effectively than others. 5972
Samuel Smiles : Self-Help. Ch. 10. No man has a right to be idle, if he can get work to do, even if he be as rich as Crosus. 5973 Timothy Titcomb (J. G. Holland): Gold-Foil. XV.

Froude. Vol. ii. Ch. 13. Letter, July 2, 1832.
To John Carlyle. The world is not made for the prosperous alone, nor for the strong. 5980 George William Curtis : The Potiphar Papers.
VII. The Rev. Henry Dove to Mrs. Potiphar. Wise men sometimes avoid the world, that they may not be surfeited with it. 5981 La Bruyère : Characters. Of Society and Conver
sation. (Rowe, Translator.) The world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those who feel.
5982 Horace Walpole : Letter, 1770. To Sir Horace Mann.
It is not work that kills men; it is worry. Work is healthy: you can hardly put more upon a man than he can bear. Worry is rust upon the blade. 5983
Henry Ward Beecher : Life Thoughts;
WORSHIP – see Poetry.
It is a great thing to stand facing manward, and preach to men the everlasting gospel; it is a greater thing to face Godward, and with all humility and all hope to voice the petitions and the aspirations of those men and women who seek the divine fellowship and the heavenly rest. 5984 Joseph Anderson : MS. Worship. Sermon, Feb.
10, 1889. Man always worships something; always he sees the Infinite shadowed forih in something finite; and indeed can and must so see it in any finite thing, once tempt him well to fix his eyes thereon. 5985 Carlyle : Essays. Goethe's Works. (Foreign
Quarterly Review. No. 19, 1832.) 'Tis certain that worship stands in some commanding relation to the health of man, and to his highest powers, so as to be, in some manner, the source of intellect. 5986

5988 Hamerton : Modern Frenchmen. Henri Perreyve. Symbols will pass away;
temples of stones will pass away; but that which will endure forever is worship in spirit and in truth, perfect charity, and the rest of souls in Jesus. In the whole world there is neither temple nor tabernacle so dear to him as the soul of the just man.

YOUTH see Hope, Prudence, Resemblance, Years.
A man that is young in years may be old in hours, if he have lost no time; but that happeneth rarely. Generally, youth is like the first cogitations, not so wise as the second; for there is a youth in thoughts as well as in ages; and yet the invention of young inen is more lively than that of old, anu imaginations streain into their minds better, and, as it were, more divinely. 5990

ZEAL see Charity, Patriotism.
If our zeal were true and genuine we should be much more angry with a sinuer than a heretic. 6000
Addison : The Spectator. No. 185. I would have every zealous man examine his heart thoroughly, and I believe he will often find that what he calls a zeal for his religion is either pride, interest, or ill-repute. 6001
Addison : The Spectator. No. 185. There is nothing in which men more deceive themselves than in what they call zeal. 6002
Addison : The Spectator. No. 185. The hopes of zeal are not wholly groundless. 6003 Johnson : Works. IX. 409. (Oxford edition, 1825.)
An ardent desire of hallowing the name of God, together with an indignation against whatever tends to the violation or contempt of religion, is called zeal.
6004 Milton : The Christian Doctrine. Ch. vi. Of Zeal.
Religious zeal leads to cleanliness, cleanliness to purity, purity to godliness, godliness to humility, humility to the fear of sin. 6005 Rabhi Pinhas-Ben-Jair : Talmud de Jérusalem,
par Schwab, Paris, 1881. IV. 16. Sentences et Proverbes du Talmud et du Midrusch, par
Schul. This, in religion, is a pure enlightened attachment to the maintenance and progress of the worship which is due to the Divinity; but when this zeal is persecuting, blind, and false, it becomes the greatest scourge of humanity.
6006 Voltaire : A Philosophical Dictionary. Zeal.
Zeal is no further commendable than as it is attended with knowledge. 6007
