"A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation.

To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” (Francoise Rene Auguste Chateaubriand) What’s your favorite part about being a CAREEREALISM-Approved Career Expert?
