A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence. All things are difficult before they are easy. America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week. And to get real work experience, you need a job, and most jobs will require you to have had either real work experience or a graduate degree. Anyone who can walk to the welfare office can walk to work. As I understand it, sport is hard work for which you do not get paid. Be open to the amazing changes which are occurring in the field that interest you. Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work. Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing. By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day. Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for love of it. Every noble work is at first impossible. Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits. Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. Find a job you like and you add five days to every week. Going to work for a large company is like getting on a train. Are you going sixty miles an hour or is the train going sixty miles an hour and you're just sitting still? Great ideas originate in the muscles. Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all. I can't imagine anything more worthwhile than doing what I most love. And they pay me for it.
