“All work and no play will make you a manager”

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” is a proverb that dates to at least the 17th century. “All work and no play will make you a manager” is a popular anti-proverb.

“All work and no play will make you a manager” has been cited in print since at least 1992.


Wikipedia: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy is a proverb. It means that without time off from work, a person becomes both bored and boring.

History
Though the spirit of the proverb had been expressed previously, the modern saying appeared first in James Howell’s Proverbs in English, Italian, French and Spanish (1659), and was included in later collections of proverbs. It also appears in Howell’s Paroimiographia (1659), p. 12.
