I love this quote from the flick "Rear Window", Jeffries is talking to his girl friend about his lifestyle as a photojournalist.
"Did you ever eat fish heads and rice? Did you ever get shot at, run over or sand bagged in the middle of the night because someone got unfavorable publicity from your camera? Listen...in this Job you carry 1 suit case, your home is the available transportation, you don't sleep very much, you bathe less and sometimes the food that you eat is made from things you couldn't even look at when they were alive!"
