    Comment


    • A Great Example of the Teamwork of Cryptogrammers

              This quote has stayed with me for years. I think it's one her most profound observations. You rarely see a published writer acknowledge that their book is the best they could do; there is usually a little bit of "Well, I could have put more detail in this chapter but I had to attend to X instead" -- but no, the truth is that it was the best they could do, and that is just so hard to accept. Because the yearning to write is almost always so much grander and more beautiful than the finished product. And that's what grieves the writer. Oh damn, I left my book-editing job a few months ago, and I miss taking care of my authors.

              A writer once said that a poem is never completed, it is only abandoned. True for most any writing. You write, then rewrite, and if you are ever satisfied, you are deluded.

                                Kudos for pushing the envelope Madonna.

                                If I ever said, "Everyone probably thinks I'm a raving nymphomaniac," it would get quite a laugh.

                                Of course you realize, if they are still alive, anyone whose quote appears here may also be a member of this site. Will the real Madonna please step up? We have some important questions we need answered.

                                This is a Fred Rogers quote, not Madonna. Please change!
