“Mumbo Jumbo is the most widely used language in the world.”

 Sadly you can suck up to the boss and get a pony for Christmas, but it you have to retrieve it under a 12 foot pile of horse manure.'

 'The most important question a young person can ask is 'Says who? '

 'Asking 'why' five times to answers any great leader gives will prove that our great leaders know very little or nothing.'

'Winston Churchill was a great leader so a rule was established that all babies would have to look like him.'

 'Growing up is the process of proving our parents were wrong about us.'

 'The problem with being a great poet is that you have to be dead first. That is a stiff requirement.'

'I have never heard a single person in my life say in a crowd, 'Ok, I am wrong.'

'There are no greater writers than friends and family who also want to edit.'

 'Good writers try for originality; great writers steal and get amnesia.'

'I was happy once. Didn't like it.'

'I'm right about most things; it's people I have trouble with.'

'If I am going to be staring at my casket lid for eternity would like it to be interesting reading.'

'Reality is whatever the mind says it is and then the world changes your mind.'

'Reality lives only in the instant and then is consigned to memory where true immortality lives.'

 'Healing Tip: In encountering others try to see/sense their soul. In doing so you and they will be transformed.'

'It takes courage to love because in opening up Love's Door all the bad things come right out as well and that scares us. Do it anyway.'

'The most dangerous situation in the world is that comfy feeling people get when they met people who share their prejudices.'

'They said I'd never grow up and I responded incredulously 'And you have a problem with that? '

'I like falling in love, just don't like the landing.'

 'I was happy once. Didn't like it.'

  'I need to practice more dog and learn to forgive in three seconds.'

  'You don't get smart by knowing, you get smart by realizing how much you don't know.'

  I realized that loving others was the only real positive reason I was on the planet so I might as well get on with it.'

'It takes courage to love because in opening up Love's Door all the bad things come right out as well and that scares us. Do it anyway.'

'Don't let yourself be intimidated by reality.'

Healing tip #2 'Love your parents even if they don't deserve it. Have to have some love to give some love to others.'

 Great people in history were regarded as crazy, or failures; to become great at anything you just have to not mind these opinions.'

 'Astronomer: The Earth is 13.7 billion years old. Astronomer's 13 year old daughter: 'And is still not allowed to date.'

'The most important phrase in the English language is 'I'm not sure let's you and I go find out.'

'To think success is an individual achievement is to harbor a bad memory excluding family, luck, mentors, and friends.'

Aging in 2011 gives us the illusion that we are smarter than our kids.'

'Technology ain't going to save us.'

'In life,
 under promise, over deliver, tell the other person's truth and never do victory laps and you'll last.'

Learn to tell your exact truth about all things, without guilt, shading or exaggerating, and you will prosper.'

'In business, life and love take time to find out what your friends, foes, and competitors want and offer it, but make them pay your reasonable price.'

'Note to music friends, find the music in the notes but just as importantly in the silence between the notes. There lies greatness.'

'In music and writing you don't have to have anything to say, but you do have to show who you be.'

'The problem with book editors is that they want to edit.'

'In sailing the seas of life remember others put the wind in your sails, not you alone.'

'The key to success is to empower the people around you.'

'The poor teach kids to survive, the middle class teach a good job & entrepreneurial, the rich teach living off the labor of others.'

'The thing is the poor and the middle classes each day take their money and give it to wall street banks who use that money against them.'

'Our purpose on this earth is to pour love into some thing or somebody, and then to step back and let it prosper.'

'Evil is the prism through which we view self.'

'Never leave your mind when thinking; never leave your body when feeling.'

In life, love and business, all these will prosper depending on how many times the word 'We' is used.'

'The definitional way of building a novel is ok but a great novel creates a new definition of, say love, not yet in the dictionary.'

'One easy way to outline a novel is to look at the 5 or 6 definitions of a word, say love, and build characters around those definitions.'

'I knew there was trouble this morning when I woke up and couldn't find my head.'

'We should declare everybody right about everything and everybody wrong about everything and then get on with it.'

'Beware of those who see issues as black and white; since they don't think, this gives them a chance to be right half the time, not'

'We have a lot of experts on problems but too few on solutions: Peanuts said: Problems cost 1c, solutions cost a whole dollar.'

'Music albums are done collaboratively. I have a publishing company model which seeks to the same thing with novels. Interested?

Started 15 novels. Looking for young writers who want to work with me on finishing them. See samples at

'It was 'dark as night' is poor writing (smile)  he was 'dark as night' is so-so. 'He was dark' is better because it has many levels to it.'

'In writing, I try to make every sentence of interest today, in my best moments I try to write sentences of interest 400 years from now.'

'Chapter three is the danger zone in most novels, scrutinize it carefully or else it is to the bedroom reading table for the book.'

'Every day in writing I have to resist the temptation to make myself the star of my own novel.'

'Every day I start writing chanting 'make characters real but remember metaphors and similes are not real.'

'If I were perfect I wouldn't be writing books and neither are you, or would you, so give your self a break, keep writing.'

'Writers often try to imitate the real world & write characters who see things as black & white. That isn't the real world, its a bad book.'

'So-so writers use description, good writers use metaphors, great writers remember metaphors are not real.'

'Recently successful writers follow Einstein's Theory of Relativity: They don't answer the phone when relatives call.'

'Because I say so' is the answer every parent, government and culture ultimately gives to every question.'

Naming tip: #2 Find out what names mean; Mine means 'Ready Warrior' and I am a four in numerology. Do the same for your characters?

Name tip: 'Don't name your hero character a name which reminds the reader of their childhood abuser.' Do some research first.

'I have failed so many times in completing novels that I am now an expert and am writing a novel about failing to write the big novel.'

'I always start another novel before I finish the first in order to avoid feeling lonely.'

'Dilemma: I feel guilty every time I pass a homeless person on the street. What to do? '

'Dilemma: I realized I was not smart enough to recognize answers right in front of me until it was too late.'

 'Don't become so engrossed in your characters that you are embarrassed to be seen with them on the street'

'Today I had to kiss my favorite chapter goodbye and bury it in the pile of 'The beautiful, the dead and the unappreciated.'

'Some days I write a piece which no one likes & think to myself, this one will be appreciated after I am dead, then I come back crowing.'

'They are all against me except thee and why are you not answering me? (smile) '

'If you can't write today draw pictures of not being able to write and write about the pictures you just drew.'

'Listen to the critiques, but keep to the dream and embed it in the writing.'

'Beware of the use of the line 'You think you are better than us' to trash what a striver is trying to accomplish.'

'Some times family and friends are the last to appreciate your writing, your talent and your dream. Keep it up anyway.'

'Ideology is a serious disease resulting from a prolonged exposure to Idiots'
