Bob: I’m so discouraged. My writing teacher told me my novel is hopeless.
Jane: Don’t listen to her, Bob. Remember: those who can, do; those who can’t, teach. People who are able to do something well can do that thing for a living, while people who are not able to do anything that well make a living by teaching.
(Used to disparage teachers. From George Bernard Shaw’s Man and Superman.)
“He was a different person: the lover who never showed his face, the man who gave nothing and wanted everything, the man who did not allow anyone to leave a trace of her passion in his heart, the hunter lying in ambush.”—Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Love in the Time of Cholera (via honeyforthehomeless)
