“You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.”
Beverly Sills

“All you have to do [to win a Pulitzer Prize] is spend your life running from one awful place to another, write about every horrible thing you see. The civilized world reads about it, then forgets it, but pats you on the head for doing it and gives you a reward as appreciation for changing nothing.”
David Baldacci, The Christmas Train
