I think I disagree with number one as writing poetry is now an important part of my life - writing has never been easy for me, particularly expressing personal or emotional things, and it was only after discovering haiku, and later limerick, writing that I became able to express some of my deepest thoughts on screen. As for number two, since July that isn't an option for me. Numbers three and four are truisms of life!
All of us learn to write in the second grade. Most of us go on to greater things.
Bobby Knight (1940 - )
When love is gone, there's always justice.
And when justice is gone, there's always force.
And when force is gone, there's always Mom.
Accomplishing the impossible means only that the boss will add it to your regular duties.
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992), Salvor Hardin in "Foundation"
