One of the saddest things is that the only thing that a man can do for eight hours a day, day after day, is work. You can't eat eight hours a day nor drink for eight hours a day nor make love for eight hours --all you can do for eight hours is work. Which is the reason why man makes himself and everybody else so miserable and unhappy.


William Faulkner

United States novelist (originally Falkner) who wrote about people in the southern United States (1897-1962)

    yksi surullisimmista on, että ainoa asia, jonka mies voi tehdä kahdeksan tuntia päivässä päivästä toiseen, on työ. et voi syödä kahdeksan tuntia päivässä äläkä juo kahdeksan tuntia päivässä äläkä rakastele kahdeksan tuntia - kaikki, mitä voit tehdä kahdeksan tuntia, on työtä. minkä vuoksi ihminen tekee itsestään ja kaikista muista niin kurja ja onnettomia.

    सबसे दु: खद बात यह है कि एक आदमी एक दिन में आठ घंटे, दिन के बाद काम कर सकता है। आप दिन में आठ घंटे नहीं खा सकते हैं और न ही आठ घंटे पी सकते हैं और न ही आठ घंटे प्यार कर सकते हैं - और आप आठ घंटे काम कर सकते हैं। यही कारण है कि आदमी खुद को और बाकी सभी को इतना दुखी और दुखी करता है।

    una delle cose più tristi è che l'unica cosa che un uomo può fare per otto ore al giorno, giorno dopo giorno, è il lavoro. non puoi mangiare otto ore al giorno né bere per otto ore al giorno né fare l'amore per otto ore - tutto ciò che puoi fare per otto ore è lavoro. che è la ragione per cui l'uomo rende se stesso e tutti gli altri così infelici e infelici.
