The only person who can teach you how to write is you.

Re: Writers' biographies

The notion that one needs a college degree to write is laughable. As a matter of fact, I'd argue that too much formal education is actually harmful. It's one of the many reasons I chose to end my own formal education with a bachelor's degree.

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

~ Clark Ashton Smith, "The Devotee of Evil"
