What is work?

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 can reward us with recognition, money, independence,
maturity, and self-respect. In short, work is the price, prize, and pride
of life.
