A curse of being a writer is the compulsion to edit. Take the sign on my walking trail, for example. It reads, 'Watered by well water.' One of these days, no matter how hard I try to resist, I just know I'm going to paint it out to read, 'Irrigated by well water.' If you don't get this, it's because you're not a writer.Ron Brackin Irrigated Sayings By Ron Brackin: A curse of being a writer is the compulsion to edit. Take the sign on
Destiny is another name for humanity's half-hearted yet persistent search for death.

Just as Americans have discovered the hidden energy costs in a multitude of products-in refrigerating a steak, for example, on its way to the butcher-they are about to discover the hidden water costs. Beginning with the water that irrigated the corn that was fed to the steer, the steak may have accounted for 3,500 gallons. The water that goes into a 1,000-pound steer would float a destroyer. It takes 14,935 gallons of water to grow a bushel of wheat, 60,000 gallons to produce a ton of steel, 120 gallons to put a single egg on the breakfast table.Jerry Adler Irrigated Sayings By Jerry Adler: Just as Americans have discovered the hidden energy costs in a multitude of products-in refrigerating

I destroy because for me everything that proceeds from reason is untrustworthy. I believe only in the evidence of what stirs my marrow, not in the evidence of what addresses itself to my reason. I have found levels in the realm of the nerve. I now feel capable of evaluating the evidence. There is for me an evidence in the realm of pure flesh which has nothing to do with the evidence of reason. The eternal conflict between reason and the heart is decided in my very flesh, but in my flesh irrigated by nerves ...Antonin Artaud Irrigated Sayings By Antonin Artaud: I destroy because for me everything that proceeds from reason is untrustworthy. I believe only
They ravaged neither the rivers nor the forest, and if they irrigated, they took as little water as would serve their needs. The land and all that it bore they treated with consideration; not attempting to improve it, they never desecrated it.Willa Cather Irrigated Sayings By Willa Cather: They ravaged neither the rivers nor the forest, and if they irrigated, they took as
