On Serving Well

"That's the way you young fellows are. You serve your employers so-so, and when you leave your jobs, you usually have muddled up the way back to them. You ought to serve your masters so that they will think a lot of you, and when you come again, they will not refuse you, but rather dismiss the man who has taken your place."
-from The Servant by S.T. Semyonov
