The Master in The Art of Living makes little distinction between their work and play, their labor and leisure, their mind and body, their education and recreation, their love and religion. They hardly know which is which. They simply pursue the vision of excellence in whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing. To them they are always doing both. – Zen Buddhist text
