Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them - work, family, health, friends and spirit - and you're keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls - family, health, friends and spirit - are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.

One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one’s work is terribly important.
Bertrand Russell (The Conquest of Happiness)
Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.

Work, love and play are the great balance wheels of man’s being.
