Everybody Needs A Career Manager

“Very well then! I’ll write, write write. He let the words soak into his mind and displace all else.

A man had a choice, after all. He devoted his life to his work or to his wife and children and home. It could not be combined; not in this day and age. In this insane world where God was second to income and goodness to wealth.”
― Richard Matheson, Collected Stories, Vol. 1

 

“I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”
― Jessie B. Rittenhouse

 

“Everybody needs a career manager.”- Lady Macbeth”

“I never said it was easy to find your place in this world, but I’m coming to the conclusion that if you seek to please others, you will forever be changing because you will never be yourself, only fragments of someone you could be. You need to belong to yourself, and let others belong to themselves too. You need to be free and detached from things and your surroundings. You need to build your home in your own simple existence, not in friends, lovers, your career or material belongings, because these are things you will lose one day. That’s the natural order of this world. This is called the practice of detachment.”
― Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps

 

“Out of the current confusion of ideals and and confounding of career hopes, a calm recognition may yet emerge that productive labor is the foundation of all prosperity.”
― Matthew B. Crawford

 

“If you’re male, and you’re Christian and living in America, your father is your model for God. And sometimes you find your father in your career.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
