I have some favourite quotes, aka words to live by, and one of my all time favourite quotes is:
Never try to teach a pig to sing ~ It wastes your time, and annoys the pig.
Tonight I was looking for a particular writing quote by Robert Heinlein, and discovered he’d originally coined that phrase in one of his books, The Notebooks of Lazarus Long. I’ve not read that one, but now I really want to go and revisit his Have Spacesuit, Will Travel. That was one of the first books that made me realise I really liked science fiction 🙂
