Work is life; idleness is death.
With a few
exceptions, nearly everyone has to work in order to make a living. The most obvious reason
to work is the sheer necessity for survival. For those who wish to live a more affluent
life, they work harder and longer to get extra income or overtime remuneration. Work,
then, is equivalent to a higher standard of living.
People do not necessarily enjoy work but they all enjoy the
reward of their work, and the reward is so tangible and immediate that no one can fail to
appreciate it. Therefore, it can be said that the primary objective of the multitude
to work is for survival and for tangible material reward.
