Something Thoreau wrote on April 29, 1852

“The art of life, of a poet’s life, is, not having anything to do, to do something.”

He could have aced “of a poet’s life” and the rule would still apply. Almost any activity, outside of that which is illegal, [grossly] immoral or fattening, can be wrung of some productive aspect.
