Heart of darkness

I'm reading it the bus. It's by joseph conrad - I recommend him! Only 70 more pages. In the mean time, here's a great quote:
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.

that is inspiring! I like ideas that make work seem noble and attainable. lazing is fine, but yes, not quite ideal.
