Work was like a stick. It had two ends. When you worked for the knowing you gave them quality; when you worked for a fool you simply gave him eyewash.
Yes, you live with your feet in the mud and there's no time to be thinking about how you got in or how you're going to get out.
You should rejoice that you're in prison. Here you have time to think about your soul.
