“Work is the greatest thing in the world, so we should always save some of it for tomorrow”

"Work is the greatest thing in the world, so we should always save some of it for tomorrow” is a jocular work saying that has been printed on many images. American humorist Don Herold (1889-1966) included the line in his “Everyday Wisdom” newspaper column on April 3, 1916.


Wikipedia: Don Herold
Don Herold (July 9, 1889 – June 1, 1966) was an American humorist, writer, illustrator, and cartoonist who wrote and illustrated many books and was a contributor to national magazines. He was born in Bloomfield, Indiana to Otto F. Herold and Clara Dyer Herold. He graduated from high school in 1907 and went on to the Art Institute of Chicago until 1908 when he transferred to the Indiana University. He was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity and in 1913 he graduated with an AB degree. He married Katherine Porter Brown on August 12, 1916, and they had two children; one of whom was the writer Doris Herold Lund. He lived in Los Angeles in the 1920s and 1930s and New York City from 1940 to 1962. He died in Vero Beach, Florida.
