Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.
Even if you have $20,000 to buy an item, you still try to get a good price at antique stores. I collect furniture, rugs, paintings, frames. It's my hobby to go around to shops and markets.
I feel Polish. More specifically, I feel like I'm from the tiny village in the Northeast of Poland where I have a house and where I love to spend time. But I don't work there. I cut wood.
A woman can be very beautiful and an ideal model and she will photograph incredibly well, but she'll appear in film and it won't work. What works is some fusion of physical beauty with some mental field or whatever you call it. I don't know.
By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day.
If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six hours sharpening my ax.
