All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy

Posted by Black_Elk on March 17, 2004

The first plase I heard this phrase was in the movie "The Shining". At first I thougt it was a phrase made up for this movie, or the book. But When I saw "The Bridge On the River Kwai" the same phrase was used. Wher does it come from and what is the original meaning of thes phrase ?
