Scribbled Notes

  • No tears for the writer, no tears for the reader
  • Write every day without hope and without despair
  • Each age must write its own book
  • You should show rather than tell your readers
  • An educated man is one who is never bored under any circumstances
  • Follow your bliss, follow your pain
  • Dive down, but come back up. Dive, dont fall.
  • Write your guts out.

Eastern wise man said, "Seven times fall down, eight times stand up".

The fourth item is important in more than just teaching. A good leader goes forward in such a manner as to entice others to follow whether it be in teaching or other rhealms of life. Enjoy the journey.

What wonderful advice, duly noted.

Heh. I remember jotting down a few similar ideals for my own online writing. But after they started numbering in the several dozen I decided I was neurotic and dropped the habit.
