"When in doubt take the high ground."
This is something I live by. It applies to everything in my life. Moral choices to video games (I actually came up with it while playing GOW2) to everything in between. Something else I tack on once in a while is "...and empty the clip." Which literally or not, These are my guidelines.
But my favorite quote is;
"The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~Sylvia Plath "
