The Value of Rest

By and large, we don't value rest and relaxation.  We have made a virtue of unceasing labor; we brag about how busy we are.  It's as if the hectic pace of our lives is proof that we're important and significant.   We feel guilty when we're not working, and we're suspicious of anyone else who moves their nose from the grindstone for too long.
