Words of Advice

Never listen to anything anyone
tells you, unless you specifically asked them, or have no idea how to do
what you want, or even worse, not the slightest idea what you want to
do. In all these cases, you should probably go and study in further
education or higher education, and if you can't be bothered to do this,
perhaps you're doing the wrong thing. But don't take my word for it.

– Mick Grierson, Goldsmith's, University of London
