“This Writer's Equation: At best, recall most literary work begun is garbage. Of the remainder, beware much of that completed was not worth starting. And ever know this, what remains makes all of it worthwhile.”
T.F. Pruden, One Fate Befalls

“In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.”
Benjamin Brewster

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
