Robert Heinlein

So write after I wrote the previous entry, I found the quote I was looking for:

Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards. Robert A. Heinlein

What is funny about that, of course, is that Robert Heinlein is my favorite author, and certainly the one whose writing has most influenced my attitudes. The "Dum Vivimus, Vivamus" motto on this page, while usually attributed to Epicurus (341–270 B.C.) is the motto on the sword of a hero in Heinlein's "Glory Road".
