Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.
Robert Heinlein

In the absence of clearly-defined goals we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.
Robert Heinlein

Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made my lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.

Heinlein was a very wise person. #3 is spot on.

Rats! You mean that by me getting up early I'm not prone to progress?

I am lazy though, I try to take a nap most afternoons!

I have to write this to counter the third quote. Heinlein, may be correct some of the time, but not all the time.

He's not lazy.
