I was emailed recently with a request for a few of my teacher's maxims, sayings, anecdotes, by someone obviously without the stomach to trawl through the shite here for them, so here's a couple of my favourites:

"The worst form of laziness is to work very hard at the wrong thing"

which, he always claimed, was Thomas Aquinas, but I suspect he designated respectable provenance in the vain hope that we may give it more credence.

"I can't do the work for you, and if I could, I wouldn't."
