“Work! … work’s no more respectable than alcohol, and it serves exactly the same purpose: it just distracts the mind, makes a man forget himself. Work’s simply a drug, that’s all. It’s humiliating that men should’t be able to live without drugs, soberly; it’s so humiliating that they shouldn’t have the courage to see the world and themselves as they really are. They must intoxicate themselves with work.”

-Aldous Huxley, Point Counter Point
