I guess I am a rapper. It's weird to be called that, or tell someone that's your profession.
Politics is a game and a profession. It doesn't really serve the people the politicians are supposed to serve.

I have come across both inspiring teachers of history and deplorable ones over the years, so one cannot generalise, except perhaps to observe that the profession seems to encourage anti-militarist sentiments.

As a middle-aged woman who has had some luck as a writer, I'd like this profession of author to remain a possibility for young writers in the future - and not become an arena solely for the hobbyist or the well-heeled.

Being a painter is the only profession where you have to stand there with all your shortcomings on the wall.
Painting is such an individual profession. I'm not performing. There's no audience.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
