I once began a list of all of the contradictory notions I hold: Look before you leap — He who hesitates is lost. Two heads are better than one — If you want something done, do it yourself. Nothing ventured, nothing gained — Better safe than sorry. Out of sight, out of mind — Absence makes the heart grow fonder. You can't tell a book by its cover — Clothes make the man. Many hands make light work — Too many cooks spoil the broth. You can't teach an old dog new tricks — It's never too late to learn. Never sweat the small stuff — God is in the details. And so on... the list goes on forever. Once I got so caught up in this kind of thinking that I wore two buttons on my smock when I was teaching art. One said, "Trust me, I'm a teacher." The other replied, "Question Authority."
