There is a similar passage (at least I think's it's a passage) with a Do Your Work theme, I like it better, but can't remember if it's from a letter or a poem, I'm sure everyone will have seen it, can't think where it's from though or the title to search?
Thanks Ponder, but it wasn't what I was thinking of, I'll stumble across it again somewhere.
It's like; You've ran out of butter when you've just made toast - Do Your Work!
Your trapped in the lift with the world's most boring person - Do Your Work!
Can't find a matching pair of socks? - Do Your Work!
That sort of thing, I'm joking but I do love it, someone else must know where it comes from, hopefully.
