"There is only one means of ensuring you are not ground into paste by disappointment, futility, and disillusion. And that is always to ensure, to the utmost of your ability, that you are doing it solely for the money."
-Michael Chabon via George Deasy, Editor-in-Chief
in The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
