“Who, being loved, is poor? Oh, no one”
Excerpt From A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde
“Every day, your body requires energy to survive, to think, to do well, to be happy. You don’t get infinite energy. One way to replenish energy is to sleep. The other way is to eat well and exercise. But another way to replenish energy is to live a gentle life. As gently as possible. Which means all negotiation need to be smooth else they result in anxiety and fear and guessing…future depletion of energy. And then you die faster than the one who lived gently. Try this. Next time you are in a negotiation, don’t forget to relax your face”
– James Altucher, The Choose Yourself Guide To Wealth
“I am not justified in causing myself pain, for I have never deliberately caused pain to another”
– Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
“A tenet of journalism is that “the reader knows nothing”. As tenets go, it’s not flattering, but a technical writer can never forget it. You can’t assume that your readers know what you assume everybody knows, or that they still remember what was once explained to them.
The principle of scientific and technical writing applies to all nonfiction writing. It’s the principle of leading readers who know nothing, step by step, to a grasp of subjects they didn’t think they had an aptitude for or were afraid they were too dumb to understand.”
– William Zinsser
If people don’t love or hate your work, you just haven’t done all that much – Tinker Hatfield
