My poetry professor loved to trick us into paying attention by randomly sharing some of his favorite quotes by writers of every ilk. One day, in the middle of a lengthy and arduous lecture, he very quietly interrupted his lesson to share with the few who managed to stay awake that Isaac Asimov once said, “If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.” My professor then paused, and a smile slowly turned up his mustache. That quote now hangs on the wall of my home office.
