The Lunch Pail Manifesto
- We must find the work that brings our lives meaning.
- We must strive to make our work purposeful, truthful, and authentic, a pure offering to our Muse and fellow human beings.
- We must wage a lifelong war with Resistance and accept that instant gratification is an oxymoron.
- We must not speak of our work with false modesty or braggadocio.
- We must not debase our work for short term gain nor elevate it above its rightful station to inflate our ego.
- We must not covet the fruits of our work, or the fruits of others’ work.
- We must respect others’ work and offer aid to fellow professional laborers.
- We must accept that our work will never be perfect.
- We must accept that our work will never be without merit.
- We must accept that our work will never cease.
