Mondays with Marty

In this week's installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther explains what best animates him to work:
"2410b. I find nothing that promotes work better than angry fervor; for when I wish to compose, write, pray and preach well, I must be angry. It refreshes my entire system, my mind is sharpened, and all the unpleasant thoughts and depression fade away" (p. 110).

Maybe you should imagine your dissertation with a water-ring on it... I'm sure that would get my writing juices flowing. Or a day filled with working on jr. high math might also have the power to warm your blood. ;)

There is no doubt that both provoke anger in me!
