The Art of Leaving Off

IT is extraordinary how few people there are who know when to stop work, and how many break-downs are due to the fact that they cannot leave their business behind them at the office.

There is a limit to the human faculties, as there is to human endurance, and when that is reached it is well to stop.

How many have lost all they had acquired by a life of energy and toil, by just holding on too long, and persisting in business after they were disqualified for it. How many more wear themselves out prematurely, by not knowing how or when to leave off, in the active transactions of every-day life, carrying their burden with them everywhere and at all seasons.

When you have come in from the field, or locked your shop-door, to go home to your wife and children, leave your work behind you, and do not talk or even think about it any more. Let your Sundays be indeed days of rest and gladness. Take a little comfort as you go along, and let your household also get something out of you in the way of enjoyment—something more than food and clothing.
