Jobs Should be Interesting, Not Death-Inspiring

One thing that always bothers me, is that people read this quote to say that you should go have an “exotic” or “expensive” job. I often have people say that sometimes you just have to do the boring or depressing job because you need money. My answer is this–if the job isn’t something cool, then make it more fun. Be a happy person, play jokes, ask interesting questions, change the environment to be more fun. Just because the work itself is dull, doesn’t mean the job has to be. **DB

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

– Dale Carnegie

The Blade of Grass in a Field

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. . . I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

**Elliott Erwin

Best Question Ever

“I never ask a man what his business is, for it never interests me. What I ask him about are his thoughts and dreams.”

**H.P. Lovecraft

Keep Dreaming!

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” 

**Paulo Coelho

The Fun Kind of Knowledge

“There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.”

**Bertrand Russell

 

(i.e. Did you know that people in ancient days ate balls of mercury because it was supposed to make you immortal?–Cool huh?!?)

Deliberately Bored

“Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know, that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom?”
