    Hello Njanja

    1. Work, eat, less than you can.

    Yes, that seems fine to me. Is it a slogan?

    'Work less than you can' is one of the Ten Montenegrin Commandments.They are very funny and somebody asked me to translate them.

    Re: Is it correct to say...

    <...work less than you can...>

    That sounds eminently sensible.

    I'd have a teeshirt printed with it on, if it wasn't too much like hard work.
