„I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.“

— Jerome K. Jerome English humorist 1859 - 1927
Context: It always does seem to me that I am doing more work than I should do. It is not that I object to the work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me: the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart. Ch. 15.
