Honest labour needs no memory...

    Honest labor bears a lovely face. peaceful till provoked, then plows become swords ! Honor is a value closely associated with moral integrity. A purse without a sword is soon lost !. Robert Edwards, your comment has roots of biblical context. Ecclesiastes 5:20, For he shall not much remember the days of his life; because God answereth him in the joy of his heart. Better is an handful with quietness, than both hands full with travail and vexation of spirit. Ecc 4:6 For a debt of 40 pounds Thomas Dekker spent 7 years in prison. The quote is a humble statement.
