Came across this Judy Garland quote:
Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else.
Do you wish you were like someone else? Does it spur you on to do better, or make you miserable and insecure?
Working hard on Rainbird at the moment, and I have dragons on the brain. Not the cute cuddly kind, nor the telepathic loyal-forever-and-ever sort.
No, these dragons are big and scary. Beware of them.
It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.
~ J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
