"Maturity is the process of gradually learning that your genius has not been in charge but dumb luck has been there most of the time."

"Editing is death by a thousand nibbles."
"Some times it's the story or is the grammar; I always choose the story, and then I find I am tense-less and have to edit."
"All writers inexplicably subject themselves to the greatest torture which can be applied while sitting down: grammar."

"Money can destroy love but it cannot make love."
"You rise much higher in life if you take everyone around up with you."
"You are too much into your characters if you are embarrassed to be seen with them in the daylight on the city streets."

"The problem with being wrong is that people feel free to take advantage of you then."
The basic issue is who I am and who I want people to see me as."

This is a lot more about living than writing with a lot of sage advice, keen observation, and human truth. There is much density here. Consider splitting up some of these paragraphs as they stand alone quite well. Well Done. Patrick
