Two Proverbs

Considering the upcoming work week:

Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean
but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox (Pr. 14:4)

In all toil there is profit,
but mere talk tends only to poverty. (Pr. 14:23)

The first gives me consolation as I look at my desk littered with mail, books and to do lists. The second is a reminder to stop thinking about working, and just do it.
