Re: Work and mental health in the UK

Work is the price and prize of life. As the price of life, work requires effort, dedication, perseverance, sacrifice, and results. As the prize of life, work rewards us with recognition, money, independence, maturity, and self-respect. In short, work is the price, prize, and pride of life.
