Amy Poehler on careers:

“Ambivalence can help tame the beast. Remember, your career is a bad boyfriend.  It likes it when you don’t depend on it.  It will reward you every time you don’t act needy.  It will chase you if you act like other things (passion, friendship, family, longevity) are more important to you.  If your career is a bad boyfriend, it is healthy to remember you can always leave and go sleep with somebody else.”
