General discussion

Mark Twain ends chapter 2 of Tom Sawyer by noting that:

“If he (Tom) had been a great and wise philosopher, like the writer of this book, he would now have comprehended that work consists of whatever a body is obliged to do, and that play consists of whatever a body is not obliged to do.” He than continues and adds that There are wealthy gentleman in England who drive four- horse passenger-coaches twenty or thirty miles on a daily line in the summer, because the privilege cost them considerable money; but if they were offered wages for the service, that would turn it into work, and then they would resign.”
