“Work is about daily meaning as well as daily bread. For recognition as well as cash; for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying … We have a right to ask of work that it include meaning, recognition, astonishment, and life.”

— Studs Turkel
