Ancient Wisdom

An ancient Chinese Proverb:

'Even if you have to type two papers for an imminent conference, if you start to write like a monkey stoned to his eyeballs on crack jabbing at a keyboard, take is as a sign that one should stop typing and go to bed'

After my last few pathetic paragraphs on a paper I'll be presenting in a few weeks, I am inclined to agree. Well said, 我去和那要 of the 没作看 Dynasty. Mr Miyagi couldn't have put it any better.

Jonathan son, there is much Mr Miyagi could teach you.

Burning the candle from both ends doesn't work.

Keeping this in mind as I write my ThM thesis this fall.

Thanks for the wisdom...
