Echoes of His Image - George Carlin, on the Desire for Satisfying Work

God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
Ge 1:31 
Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. . . And to Adam he said, 'Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it', cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground. . .
Ge 2:15 & 3:17-19

There is nothing better for a man than to eat and drink and tell himself that his labor is good. This also I have seen that it is from the hand of God. . .I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one’s lifetime;  moreover, that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor—it is the gift of God.
Ec 2:24 & 3:12-13
