Write while the heat is in you. The writer who postpones the recording of his thoughts uses an iron which has cooled to burn a hole with. He cannot inflame the minds of his audience. Henry David Thoreau
Write your own masterpiece! Use the room where Henry David Thoreau was born - "the birthplace of ideas" - as a writing studio.
