Quote of the Day (Oscar Wilde, on Hard Work)

"Hard work is simply the refuge of people who have nothing whatever to do."--Oscar Wilde, "The Remarkable Rocket" from The Happy Prince and Other Tales (1888)

Except, perhaps, if you're a writer like Wilde who, at the height of his career, before his terrible fall, churned out plays, short stories, a novel, and poems, one right after another.
