Believe it or not, someone actually asked me to post this, so blame them. This is a collection of notions that I use more or less frequently, some of these are my originals - many of them I have stolen shamelessly. I've tried to live my life according to the principles these sayings encapsulate. It's a looooonnnnggg list, and probably will get longer. If you wish to discuss any of these, contact me at For more extensive information about my advice to students, see here and here.
