Advice From The Bulletin Board

“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.”

Mason Cooley

According to Wikipedia Mason Cooley (1927 – July 25, 2002) was an American aphorist known for his witty aphorisms. One of these such aphorisms Cooley developed was “The time I kill is killing me.” He was professor emeritus of French, speech and world literature at the College of Staten Island. He was also an assistant professor of English at Columbia University from 1959 to 1967 and an adjunct professor from 1980 to 1988.

A few more great quotes from Mr. Cooley

“If you call failures experiments, you can put them in your resume and claim them as achievements.”

“Every day begins with an act of courage and hope: getting out of bed.”

“We are prepared for insults, but compliments leave us baffled.”

Have a great day!
