"Wherefore do ye toil,"

"Wherefore do ye toil; is it not that ye may live and be happy?
And if ye toil only that ye may toil more, when shall happiness find you?
Ye toil to live, but is not life made of beauty and song?
And if ye suffer no singers among you, where shall be the fruits of your toil?
Toil without song is like a weary journey without an end.
Were not death more pleasing?"

- HP Lovecraft
