Schulz on work
The other day we finished watching the PBS documentary, American Masters: Charles Schulz. Well worth hunting down, if you haven't seen it. Insightful, bittersweet, and moving. One thing in particular that Schulz said, though, really struck me. It was from an interview fairly late in life, I gather, and concerned his work ethic.
"I just have to draw from Monday to Tuesday to Wednesday to Thursday and it goes on and on and on. People say, 'Well, why can't you work real hard and get ahead and then you could take a month off?'Exactly.
"That's foolish. Mine is not the kind of job that I've worked all my life to get so that I don't have to do it."
