From Terry Pratchett’s The Wee Free Men:

terry-pratchett-advice

Miss Tick sniffed. “You could say this advice is priceless,” she said. “Are you listening?”
“Yes,” said Tiffany.
“Good. Now…if you trust in yourself…”
“Yes?”
“…and believe in your dreams…”
“Yes?”
“…and follow your star…” Miss Tick went on.
“Yes?”
“…you’ll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren’t so lazy. Good-bye.”Wee Free Men

(Some more good advice: Read as much of Terry Pratchett as you can get your hands on. You’ll thank me one day.)
