You're quoting ridiculous cliches lad, not to mention a degree of topic drift.
It's utter nonsense to state that unless you work you can't enjoy rest or unless you have felt pain you cannot appreciate pleasure. It's the sort of trite twattery that gets quoted to people in pain to make them feel better or to convince people they should work when they don't actually need to.
You said yourself you' pack in work if you were handed millions.
By the same token if your aspirations stetch only as far as being an accomplished finger painter then as long as you've covered a roof, food and finger paints... You're good to go. You don't need to spend six days a week not finger painting in order to appreciate your aspiration. and saying you do is foolish.
