Jobs You Didn’t Choose

Category: Work :: Link :: Print

C. S. Lewis, writing to Arthur Greeves:

How thankful you should be that you never have tasks which are not chosen by yourself.  And yet I don’t know.  So many things have now become interesting to me because at first I had to do them whether I liked them or not, and thus one is kicked into conquering new countries where one is afterwards at home. — Collected Letters 1.831.
