Some great quotes on the importance of play…
"Some relaxation is necessary to people of every degree; the head that thinks and the hand that labors must have some little time to recruit their diminished powers."
– Bernard Gilpin
"Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer, since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgment. Go some distance away, because then the work appears smaller, and more of it can be taken in at a glance, and lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen."
– Leonardo da Vinci
"People who cannot find time for recreation are obliged sooner or later to find time for illness."
– John Wanamaker
