The value of labor


"There is a great level in supporting one’s self with the work of one’s hands, and this was the trait of the early pious ones, and through this one merits all honor and goodness in this world and the next, as it is written, 'When you eat the labor of your hands, you are fortunate and it is good for you.' You are fortunate in this world, and it is good for you in the next world, which is entirely good."

(Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Talmud Torah 3:11)

Have a great day,
