Sacred Work

"I have a great future before me. My forebodings cannot deceive me. If I can but succeed in fulfilling only a small part of that which swells my breast, I do not want anything more. I do not want happiness, I do not think of happiness; I want work, stern work, sacred work. There is a wide field before me, and my lot will not be a small one."
Bakunin in a letter to his family, 1842, quoted in Max Nomad, Apostles of the Revolution, 1939
