“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”
I read this at a visit to The Quotations Page. Ellen Goodman, American Journalist and a Pulitzer Prize winner, on normal life. I do not agree with this rather pessimistic view–you should love what you do and be passionate about it. But I like the irony of the quotation, and it does stress the point that if you do not like what you do, then irony catches up on you.
