Three Days Three Quotes Challenge 3

chekhov_1898_by_osip_braz

Medicine is my lawful wife and literature my mistress; when I get tired of one, I spend the night with the other.

Anton Chekhov once wrote this, in reference to his profession as a physician and his passion for writing. I feel the exact same way.

Here is the entire passage from one of his letters.

“I feel more confident and more satisfied with myself when I reflect that I have two professions and not one. Medicine is my lawful wife and literature is my mistress. When I get tired of one I spend the night with the other. Though it’s disorderly, it’s not so dull, and besides neither of them loses anything from my infidelity. If I did not have my medical work I doubt if I could have given my leisure and my spare thoughts to literature. There is no discipline in me.”
