Marcus Aurelius on the Sex/Cash Theory.
“If you had a step mother and a real mother, you would pay your respects to your stepmother, yes…but it’s your real mother you would go home to. The court…and philosophy: keep returning to it, to rest in its embrace. Its what makes the court–and you–endurable.”
I’m not sure I agree with either take, that you need to have your life’s passion and then a career that subsidizes it: the court/philosophy dichotomy. Then again, I’m way to young to have any idea what the fuck I’m talking about there. It’s worth a try though.
