Posted by admin on Friday, February 22, 2019

William Morris Money Quote saying that regardless of the actual value of work, it is presumed to be gainful employment and the act of work by itself is seen as valuable, even if it is pointless. William Morris said:
 
It is assumed by most people nowadays that all work is useful, and by most well-to-do people that all work is desirable. Most people, well-to-do or not, believe that, even when a man is doing work which appears to be useless, he is earning his livelihood by it - he is 'employed' Quote
