Quote from Gertrude Stein

Don wanted to share this quote from Gertrude Stein.  What do you think?
From – Everybody’s Autobiography (1937)-Gertrude Stein
(rephrased by Don, so he could understand it!)
Before one is successful
that is
before any one is ready to pay money for anything you do
then
you are certain that every word you have written is an important word to have written and that
any word you have written is as important as any other word and
you keep everything you have written with great care.
