Actually, the whole quote is this:

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, but all play and no work makes Jack a mere toy."

Here's a source: http://www.answers.com/topic/all-work-an The year 1659 is given for this proverb, although no author is cited.

Yes, there are many treadmills onto which we place ourselves. And although we also admonish ourselves to stop and smell the roses, we are told from day one to put our noses to the grindstone and work hard to be a success, i.e. have a large salary and buy lots of stuff.

Companies (some of them) talk about work-life balance. Yeah, as long as the balance is weighted towards the company.

I'm not arguing against diligence and hard work. But it can suck the soul right out of you if it's always for someone else.

Play leads to realise of endorphins and other chemicals in the brain which helps in memory retention,comprehension and other cognitive skills.

Because we are not like ants ..........they are mostly in all work , no play life .........only food oriented . Once I killed a mosquito and put it on front of an ant .. it tried to pull it number of times but could not succeed ....... quickly it vanished and then came back with a dozen ants and they carried it together . I agree their team work is excellent but otherwise there is not much emotions and enjoyments ...absolutely no play , no dream , no fantassy ..........if you have observed ,even they take away bigger dead ants for their food ........ no dear , I don't want to live their life :))
