"It is the sweat of your brow that makes you proud of a days labor boy". "If you don't have a little sweat (equity) in what you do you don't have any pride in what you have done".

His voice was rough and deep and he spoke with a stern tone that let you know he meant what he said. I am looking forward to getting back into the darkroom after such a long hiatus and I will enjoy every minute of it because I will have sweat equity in the process no matter how long it takes.
