grab that mop and get to work!

Some may object that chores are a burdensome means to an end, undertaken solely for the sake of domestic order and quality of life. But this misses the deeper significance – by dutifully upholding one's responsibilities, regardless of fleeting desires, one is affirming the supremacy of reason over impulse. One is behaving as a truly autonomous moral agent, motivated by the laws prescribed by pure practical reason itself.
