Not Big Enough for the Human Spirit

Like this quote. It's from Working by Studs Terkel.

"Most of us, like the assembly line worker, have jobs that are too small for our spirit," an editor says. "Jobs are not big enough for people."

Some might find that a bit depressing, but I actually read it as a little "pick me up". Rather than letting your boredom with work get you down, just remember that most of us have jobs too small for our spirits.

(Stumbled on this quote in NYT article. It's too old to get for free, but found same article reprinted in the Int'l Herald Tribune.)
