"Hard work never killed a man"

Ralph Waldo Emerson and Thomas Carlyle once went for a walk through the Scottish countryside. When Emerson saw the poor soil around Ecclefechan, he asked Carlyle, "What do you raise on land like this?"

Carlyle replied, "We raise Men."

David Ogilvy, in "Confessions of an Advertising Man"
