I was wondering how to use this properly if I want to connect it to a more descriptive verb:
"He made quick work of the thorn." doesn't really describe the specific action, "to remove" (or maybe something else was done with the thorn, like crushing it, or eating it, or whatever.)
Can you say, or is it better to say, "He made quick work of removing the thorn." or rather is it "He made quick work removing the thorn." without the "of"?
Does "quick work" have its own inherent meaning or can it be used to help another verb.
