A Quote by August Heckscher on assumptions, leisure, melancholy, time, and work

Work is . . . becoming suffused with leisure values. . . . Executives on an expense account hardly know whether they are at leisure or at work; they assume it must be the latter since they are getting paid for what they do. The same executives, pushed into some time-consuming civic activity, have only the somewhat melancholy reassurance of receiving no compensation to testify to this being leisure.
