: Who is the source of the following quote, "The full fruit of a labor of love lives in the harvest, and that always comes in it's right season."?

Certainly ascribed to Jimmy Kinnon (1911 - 1985), the founder of Narcotics Anonymous. See http://na12.org/index.php/history/86-jimmy-kinnon-founder/347-sayings-of-jimmy-k.html. Perhaps others can take it further back than that.
