Well Said: Criticizing my taste

I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
I've gotten better at leaving the room instead of arguing to the death. That doesn't mean I don't still argue, but I try to stop when we're all still alive.

  1. I understand. I won't hear a word against my own dinosaurs; their feelings are easily hurt.

    I have a photograph of Ray Bradbury and me - he's looking at me as if I were a somewhat untrustworthy goof, and I look very much indeed like an untrustworthy goof.
