"A person's value lies in what they do during their leisure time, rather than in what they do during their working hours."

This is a citation from some book.
I've written two opinions, one for this idea and the other against it.
Would you mind correcting these?
I'd appreciate your help!

(A) I agree with this statement, because I think those who do nothing but work are not likely to think of any new idea, and such people can’t be valued. Enjoying leisure time often gives you chances to come across something you can’t if you work all the time, and it brings you inspiration.

(B) I disagree with this statement, because I think a person’s value can be measured only by what he achieves in his job. It is true enjoying leisure time can lead to higher performance, but it is only when you are motivated to devote yourself to work that you do perform better.
