A description of the experience
Robert Louis Stevenson - Virginbus Puerisque 1881
Extreme business, whether at school or college, kirk or market is a symptom of deficient vitality.
There is a sort of dead-alive, hackneyed people about, who are scarcely conscious of living except in the exercise of some conventional occupation .... they cannot be idle, their nature is not generous enough.
And they pass those hours in a sort of coma, that are not dedicated to furious moiling in the gold mill.
