English writer Jerome K. Jerome.

Jerome K. Jerome

(1859 - 1927)

Jerome K. Jerome left school at the age of fourteen, working as a railway clerk and then as an actor, relying on his experiences as the latter for his first book, on the stage—and off. In the preface to his essay collection The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, he wrote, “What readers ask nowadays in a book is that it should improve, elevate, instruct. This book wouldn’t elevate a cow. I cannot conscientiously recommend it for any useful purposes whatsoever.” He published the satire The New Utopia in 1891.

I like work; it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
