thoreau: most men, even in this comparatively free world, through mere ignorance and mistake, are so occupied with the factitious cares and superfluously coarse labors of life

divine postman: that its finer fruits cannot be plucked by them, henry

mbuso: their fingers, from excessive toil, are too clumsy and tremble too much for that

samantha: they stand tip-toe peeping over their lives never acknowledging the treasures before them

athi: actually, the labouring man has not leisure for a true integrity, day by day

okuhle: he cannot afford to sustain the manliest relations to men

thoreau: his labour would be depreciated in the market, his life is his work

divine postman: he sees no value in his soul but in the paycheck that he recieves

samantha: and the soul is subject to dollars, divine postman

mbuso: he has no time to be anything but a machine sam, convincing himself that he has a family when his family is his colleagues

athi: where we spend most of our time is where our hearts will be

okuhle: water takes the shape of all that it surrounds

thoreau: and thus, he comes back home from work all grumpy and exhibiting a current of moods expecting his kids to be obedient

divine postman: he must sort out his life first before he can tell me what to do; in this day and age where people idolize the dollar parents are not fit to raise children

okuhle: they take out all their misery from work on their children; when they never even spend valuable and meaningful time with the kids

samantha: everyone works to maintain the things that they have but the strange thing is that those who are employed can never even enjoy these possessions

mbuso: they go to work and end up mortgaging a home they do not live in

athi: their offices are their homes

thoreau: indeed, its like a dog chasing his tail, and in the end what you really lose is time, the great counsellor

athi: how can they well remember their ignorance

mbuso: which their growth requires

samantha: and when you begin to question them they begin to get all defensive, telling you they are working for their family when in truth they are working for themselves

thoreau: but lady and gentlemen we should feed and clothe him gratuitously sometimes

divine postman: and recruit him with our cordials

mbuso: before we judge him

athi: indeed mbuso because the finest qualities of our nature like the bloom on fruits

okuhle: can be only preserved with the most delicate handling

samantha: yet we do not treat ourselves nor one another thus tenderly
