Don’t fall into the trap of being an expert before you’re ready. We have enough of those.
(Sean Blanda, The Creative World’s Bullshit Industrial Complex)
As young as I look,
I am growing older faster than he,
Seven to one
is the ratio they tend to say.
Whatever the number,
I will pass him one day
and take the lead
the way I do on our walks in the woods.
And if this ever manages
to cross his mind,
it would be the sweetest
shadow I have ever cast on snow or grass.
by Billy Collins

I choose butter over margarine…
Cows just seem more trustworthy than chemists…
