We long for more connection between what we do for a living and what we genuinely care about… to be seen as who we feel ourselves to be rather than as the sum of abstract metrics and parameters. We long to be part of a world that makes sense rather than accept the accidental alienation imposed by market forces too large to grasp…

Much as everyone thinks they want financial security, the happiest people are not those who have it, but those who like what they do.
