The most important thing for poets to do is to write as little as possible.
T. S. Eliot
Then hate me when thou wilt; if ever, now;
Now, while the world is bent my deeds to cross,
Join with the spite of fortune, make me bow,
And do not drop in for an after-loss:
Ah! do not, when my heart hath \'scap\'d this sorrow,
Come in the rearward of a conquer\'d woe;
Give not a windy night a rainy morrow,
To linger out a purpos\'d overthrow.
If thou wilt leave me, do not leave me last,
When other petty griefs have done their spite,
But in the onset come: so shall I taste
At first the very worst of fortune\'s might;
And other strains of woe, which now seem woe,
Compar\'d with loss of thee, will not seem so.
It may affront the military-minded person to suggest a reqime that does
not maintain any military secrets. -- Albert Einstein
Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.
