This book is so nuts! I kind of love it, but I'm pretty sure that's because I have absolutely no intention of actually trying to slavishly adhere to its advice.

“Because as any writer will tell you, an IDEA for a book is like falling in love, it’s all wild emotion and headlong rush, but the ACTUAL ACT of writing a book is like building a relationship: it is joyous, slow, fragile, frustrating, exhilarating, painstaking, exhausting, worth it.”
Ben H. Winters, The Last Policeman

Stephen Hawking
“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”
Stephen Hawking

“This is my religion—we’re all animals, perfect animals created in the infinite image and imagination of nature. It’s a life not without pain and competition and suffering, but it can be a life of dignity and mutual respect.”
David Duchovny, Holy Cow

Barry  Deutsch
“My mother once told me, when you have to make a decision, imagine the person you want to become someday. Ask yourself, what would that person do?”
Barry Deutsch, How Mirka Met a Meteorite
