"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

Advice I advise you to take

Learn to love the lowered stare of the bull.
Shower in the pixie sounds of crashing China.
Empty your pockets just the one time -
the second will be a hoax,
wrought religiously in an opium den
owned by your second cousin.
(He never told you that secret?)
Squeak in time with your new sneakers.
This means, of course, that you must learn to keep time.
Wear the expensive watch your second cousin
very generously got for you last Christmas.
(Don't ask him where he got it.)
Try to leave Pamplona unharmed.
The insurance doesn't cover "aggravated goring."
