1) William Allen White – Journalist/News Editor

“Substitute damn every time you’re inclined to write very; your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.”

Though often mistakenly referenced as a quote by Mark Twain, White knows that adverbs can be dangerous if used overbearingly (see what I did there?). Very and similar words can bog a sentence down, and are often used where they shouldn’t be.

And so we arrive at the conclusion of this triplet of posts themed on Genius to Insanity. A very liberal interpretation but having journeyed through Einstein and Poe we arrive at madness and a book by Lewis Carrol you might have heard of entitled Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

 As I sit in this huge mansion, so great it could take anyone’s breath away. Outside the windows a beautiful meadow, grass so green nothing could compare, a sky so blue you could mistake it for an ocean, so many beautiful flowers you could open up a flower shop. This would be such a great place to start a family and live out my life and grow old with the woman I love, surrounded by our grandchildren. I was so close to that life, so close to that happiness. Alexandria was, is the women I love and I’m going to get her back no matter how many people I have to kill to do it. – Foret

I introduced myself to Tim Ferriss last year when I randomly found a post on his blog in which he had interviewed Maria Popova.

My inaugural post as a ‘writer’ for The Millionaire’s Digest. For my part it is a revisit to a quote challenge from some months ago first thrown up on my own blog fiction is food.

Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future.
–Dale E. Turner

I’ve always heard people say that “public speaking” is one of the most common fear people face, and at such, they fear to fail at doing it. I was a victim of this.
