“There are two approaches to choosing a profession. One is to study the statistics on the number of jobs that are going to be available in this or that category in the next ten years and base your life on that. That’s following the rim instead of the wheel. The other, is to ask yourself, “What do I want to do?” If you do that, then you are up against your decision. But if you say, “I am going to do what I want to do,” and if you stay with it, then something will happen. You may not have a job, but you will have a life, and it will be interesting.”
Joseph Campbell, in “Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion” by Diane K. Osbon
