First of all, I need work, and a decent wage for my work :

First of all, I need work, and a decent wage for my work. Aristotle defined happiness, not as a sum of pleasures, but as unimpeded activity. I want work which is hard but interesting.I am exceptionally lucky because I can choose my own work to a large extent. If I want respite from science I can go and be a war correspondent, or write children’s stories, or make political speeches.


I require friendship. Panicularly I require friendship of my colleagues and comrades in scientific and political work. I want the society of equals who will criticize me, and whom  Ican criticize.
