PLAN YOUR LIFE

A famous British writer George Bernard Shaw once visited a sculptor Sir Jacob Epstein at his studio. The visitor noticed a huge block of stone standing in one corner and asked what it was for. "I don’t know yet. I’m still making plans."

Shaw was astounded. "You mean you plan your work. Why, I change my mind several times a day!" As a writer, he just starts writing whatever comes to him.

"That’s all very well with a four-ounce manuscript," replied the sculptor, "but not with a four-ton block of stone.”
