A Quote by W. E. B. Du Bois on boredom, heaven, hell, life, needs, satisfaction, work, and world

The return from your work must be the satisfaction which that work brings you and the world's need of that work. With this, life is heaven, or as near heaven as you can get. Without this - with work which you despise, which bores you, and which the world does not need - this life is hell.

W. E. B. Du Bois (1868 - 1963)
