Mass of Bad Work

First Edition, The Way of All Flesh (1903) by Samuel Butler (Grant Richards)

“Everyone has a mass of bad work in him which he will have to work off and get rid of before he can do better–and indeed, the more lasting a man’s ultimate good work is, the more sure he is to pass through a time, and perhaps a very long one, in which there seems very little hope for him at all.”

~ Samuel Butler, The Way of All Flesh (1903)
