Prizes are an incentive to the work done. But they should not be the main aim of doing the job. Prizes are offered to encourage people to do more of similar things but some people get addicted to prizes and recognition that they do the job only with the sole objective of getting prizes. To be more philosophical, “Of lives two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in laborers hand’ said Kahlil Gibran. If we do our hard work and dedicate it to the welfare of self or the society, we will not expect prizes for our work. Getting our due salary, income, remuneration or recognition are all part of the hard work’s result. But prize is something different and will not come under this category. “Far and away, the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard are work worth doing ‘said Theodore Roosevelt. Read these quotes on prizes; they are interesting.
