"Your true traveller finds accountancy rather agreeable than painful. It is the symbol of his liberty - his excessive freedom. He accepts his accountant, when he comes, not merely philosophically, but almost with pleasure."
- Aldous HuxleyAnd a little more worryingly, this one from Danish American actor and poet, Viggo Mortensen:
"There's no excuse to be an accountant. Sad, yes. Angry, yes. Depressed, yes. Crazy, yes. But there's no excuse for accountants ever."And, in a similar vein, this one from Dustin Hoffman:
"There's a rebirth that goes on with us continuously as human beings. I don't understand, personally, how you can be an accountant. I can understand how you can be depressed, but I just don't understand accountants."Clearly the words are not synonymous.
Any more for any more?
