Conrad on Work

No. I don’t like work. I had rather laze about and think of all the fine things that can be done. I don’t like work–no man does–but I like what is in the work–the chance to find yourself. Your own reality–for yourself–not for others–what no other man can ever know. They can only see the mere show, and never can tell what it really means.

— Joseph Conrad in Heart of Darkness
