On occasion, the Writing Tip Lady not only utters sometimes incomprehensible bits of advice, she demands that I, the humble sub sub assistant, write them down.
I suppose they may be of some value to some other than myself.
|None sees the Pyramids who waits for them to arrive||Paris is never Paris||Do not let your presence interfere with your life||Only the sane knows madness||If you cannot kill with kindness, try indifference|
|Elegance is simplicity at work||An excuse defines one's ineptitude||Dear boy, if time travel was possible, it already would have happened.||It takes sense to make sense||Man invented both the plow and the hammock|
|Wondering leads to wandering when wondering is not enough.||Motivation and Destination: Can't have one without the other.||Art is a conversation, not a competition||Learning improves living||Charity begins and ends at your fingertips|
|Grief is anguish well dressed||He who hesitates gets good at it||Learning how to write well is no harder than, and only takes as long as, memorizing all of the streets of Calcutta||Write Talking, not talk Writing||The hardest task in writing a novel is starting after you started|
|Making something simple is not simple, but making something complicated is.||It's a lonely person who only speaks the truth||Things change slowly where change is not constant||Condemnation cuts twice||The only way to honor thy Father and thy Mother is to improve upon what they brought to the party|
|The only Witch Doctor without secrets is a dead Witch Doctor||One can live in the foothills of possibilities, but the king reigns on the mountain top||Failure is an assessment by those who made no attempt||Characters without character, good or bad, are dead upon arrival||If you don't know where you're going, you can't get there|
|A silent mouth frees an ambitious mind, but imprisons all others||Don't be a coward, but don't be a fool||Be full wary of a man who must dress a woman, and twice more wary of a woman who must dress a man.||Wherever you go, there you are||Should stupidity & arrogance fail you, there's always science|
|Learning improves living||During traumatic change we exist in first and third person||Know thyself to die laughing||Everyone believes himself more moral than his society||An excuse defines one's ineptitude|
