A Master in the Art of Living

A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play;
his labor and his leisure;
his mind and his body;
his education and his recreation.
He hardly knows which is which.
He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing,
and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing.
To himself, he always appears to be doing both
— Yvon Chouinard

I LOVE this quote by legendary climber, surfer, businessman, environmentalist, and founder of Patagonia Inc. I read it in his amazing book Let my People go Surfing, which, half memoir, half a summary of the guiding philosophies of Patagonia, is a great, quick and inspiring read.
