          After great pain, a formal feeling comes.

          --Emily Dickinson

          A man may write at any time, if he will set himself doggedly to it.

          -- Samuel Johnson

          Keep right on to the end of the road.

          --Harry Lauder

          The average Ph.D. thesis is nothing but the transference of bones from one graveyard to another.
