work is love made visible

Hello forum,

I don't seem to be able to find the original of this Khalil Gibran quotation:

Work is love made visible. And if you can't work with love, but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of the people who work with joy

I only need the part in bold, please.

    العمل حب تجسم للعيون. فإذا كنت تعمل كارها وحليفك النفور لا الحب، فخير لك أن تهجر العمل، فتقعد على باب المعبد تتلقى الصدقات ممن يعملون مبتهجين
