By Xenophon

(Greek historian, c.430 B.C.–c.355 B.C.)
IF you perfume a slave and a freeman, the difference of their birth produces none in the smell; and the scent is perceived as soon in the one as the other; but the odor of honorable toil, as it is acquired with great pains and application, is ever sweet and worthy of a brave man.  1
