Speaking of Robert Burns. He had this quote: “Suspense is worse than disappointment.” I think he is right, but it doesn’t make it feel any better.
Also on Nip/Tuck, this guy had a quote, I thought was particular incisive.
“You try making someone do something they don’t want to do. It’s like feeding them a shit sandwich. They may eat it, but they aint gonna like it and they aint gonna like you.”
Motivation is so difficult. This morning I tried explaining to Ethan about having a positive attitude. Is he moldable or am I feeding him a shit sandwich?
Sorry for the unpleasant visuals.
