On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs "the feeling that work is a moral value in itself, and that anyone not willing to submit themselves to some kind of intense work discipline for most of their waking hours deserves nothing, is extraordinarily convenient"

"A lot of websites run on a system of having to get a post up every half-hour, and a lot of those end up being filler posts because they don't actually have that much to say. Rookie is kind of my response to that because we have three posts a day, and we plan everything a month ahead of time. I think there's this scrambling — that for people to feel like they're a relevant or interesting person they have to be spouting out one-liners on Twitter every couple of hours."

Tavi Gevinson Launched Rookie magazine to offer honest content about fashion, feminism and life issues for girls. Did I mention she is 15 years old!!!
<3: Where do you see yourself in 10 years? In my basement on a bean bag chair, watching The Simpsons and eating pizza.
I'm not in T.G.'s target audience, but I appreciate her moxie. very much. (also, if I were a teen girl, I'd read Rookie every day...)

In Praise of Idleness by Bertrand Russell "Suppose that a certain number of people are engaged in the manufacture of pins. They make as many pins as the world needs, working eight hours a day. Someone makes an invention by which the same number of men can make twice as many pins. In a sensible world, everybody concerned in the manufacturing of pins would take to working four hours instead of eight. But in the actual world this would be thought demoralizing."
“I ought to call myself an agnostic; but, for all practical purposes, I am an atheist. I do not think the existence of the Christian God is any more probable than the existence of the Gods of Olympus or Valhalla. To take another illustration: nobody can prove that there is not between the Earth and Mars a china teapot revolving in an elliptical orbit, but nobody thinks this sufficiently likely to be taken into account in practice. I think the Christian God just as unlikely.” Bertrand Russell
The Medium Chill "There will always be a More and Better just beyond our reach, no matter how high we climb. We could always have a little more money and a few more choices. But as we see it, we don’t need to work harder to get more money to have more choices because we already made our choice. We chose our family and our friends and our place. Like any life ours comes with trade-offs, but on balance it’s a good life, we’ve already got it, and we’re damn well going to enjoy it."

Quitting the Paint Factory by Mark Slouka "Idleness is not just a psychological necessity, requisite to the construction of a complete human being; it constitutes as well a kind of political space, a space as necessary to the workings of an actual democracy as, say, a free press. How does it do this? By allowing us time to figure out who we are, and what we believe; by allowing us time to consider what is unjust, and what we might do about it."

I on the other hand did not take anything in advance from my retirement years, but squeeze in short bursts of 'time off' every quarter in each of my working year. But someday I'll be gone for a year, somewhere in this world, on an awesome adventure. (http://www.ted.com/talks/stefan_sagmeister_the_power_of_time_off.html)
