Write while the heat is in you. The writer who postpones the recording of his thoughts uses an iron which has cooled to burn a hole with. He cannot inflame the minds of his audience. HENRY DAVID THOREAU 1817-1864 AMERICAN POET, AUTHOR, PHILOSOPHER, AND NATURALIST. KNOWN FOR “WALDEN POND” ABOUT SIMPLE LIVING IN NATURAL SURROUNDINGS.

Cross Out As Many Adjectives and Adverbs As You Can

Cross out as many adjectives and adverbs as you can. It is comprehensible when I write: “The man sat on the grass,” because it is clear and does not detain one’s attention. On the other hand, it is difficult to figure out and hard on the brain if I write: “The tall, narrow-chested man of medium height and with a red beard sat down on the green grass that had already been trampled down by the pedestrians, sat down silently, looking around timidly and fearfully.” The brain can’t grasp all that at once, and art must be grasped at once, instantaneously.

If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel ill I will double my labor.  If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. Today I will be the master of my emotions. OG MANDINO 1923-1996 AMERICAN AUTHOR, BEST KNOW FOR HIS BEST SELLER “THE GREATEST SALESMAN IN THE WORLD.”
