Get your point across. Stop wasting. Start speaking. These are lessons I learned from Hemingway.
Robert M. Pirsig:
Articulating philosophies. That’s what I want to talk about in today’s application Chautauqua. There is a certain romantic Quality in using prose to convey a technically sound argument.
Dr. Seuss has taught me a ton.
Live life, make rhymes, and just have fun!
In writing, you should never be coy,

It is not the presence, but the application that determines the quality of innovation. Farming, for example, is a technological innovation that has improved life for many.

Further, I’ve consolidated the body text to make it an easier read. Washington’s cutest cat is still at the forefront, but now there aren’t too many distractions from appreciating the fine work of the Humane Rescue Alliance.
