A Thought for Tuesday

I think there is definitely something to this line by the Italian chemist Primo Levi (1919-1987):

"The bond between a man and his profession is similar to that which ties him to his country; it is just as complex, often ambivalent, and in general it is understood completely only when it is broken: by exile or emigration in the case of one's country, by retirement in the case of a trade or profession."
