    Yes -- now that you posted the complete quote. :-)

    Although Bobpursley's version is true for many, let's examine the original quote by Henry David Thoreau. He means that most men are so caught up in their routine -- work, chores, socializing, etc., that they don't really see and understand their own lives. They just plod along, doing their duty without really living the examined and true life.

    Here's another quote somewhat along the same lines as what Thoreau said:

    If you keep your nose to the grindstone, what do you get? A short nose!

    Better advice: "stop and smell the roses." That is why so many companies are stressing "balance" in life. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" so to speak.
