„We must believe in free will — we have no choice.“

—  Isaac Bashevis Singer Polish-born Jewish-American author 1902 - 1991
An ironic statement which Singer made in many interviews over many years; here quoted in "Isaac Singer’s Promised City" http://www.city-journal.org/html/7_3_urbanities-isaac.html City Journal (Summer 1997) Variants or variant translations: We must believe in free will — we have no other choice. You must believe in free will; there is no choice. We have to believe in free will. We’ve got no choice. This makes more sense if you consider the statement "we must believe in free will; we have no [other logical] choice"

„Free time is mostly devoted to getting ready for work, going to work, returning from work, and recovering from work.“

—  Bob Black, The Abolition of Work
The Abolition of Work (1985), Context: Socrates said that manual laborers make bad friends and bad citizens because they have no time to fulfill the responsibilities of friendship and citizenship. He was right. Because of work, no matter what we do we keep looking at our watches. The only thing "free" about so-called free time is that it doesn't cost the boss anything. Free time is mostly devoted to getting ready for work, going to work, returning from work, and recovering from work. Free time is a euphemism for the peculiar way labor as a factor of production not only transports itself at its own expense to and from the workplace but assumes primary responsibility for its own maintenance and repair. Coal and steel don't do that. Lathes and typewriters don't do that. But workers do.
