In Praise of Leisure

Here's a whole set of quotes. This one is my idea of a good world.

"In a world where no one is compelled to work more than four hours a day, every person possessed of scientific curiosity will be able to indulge it, and every painter will be able to paint without starving, however excellent his pictures may be. Young writers will not be obliged to draw attention to themselves by sensational potboilers, with a view to acquiring the economic independence needed for monumental works, for which, when the time at last comes, they will have lost the taste and the capacity."
-- Bertrand Russell

Poem: "Always Carry Your Goodness"
