Extraordinary Discourse 143

The Cult Of Working For A Living

To make the simplest gesture with the hand can convey the utmost sense of life… Activity in itself means nothing: it is often a sign of death. By simple external pressure, by force of surroundings and example, by the very climate which activity engenders, one can become part of a monstrous death machine, such as America, for example.
Henry Miller, Tropic Of Capricorn
