We find good all that serves man in some way, serving his needs, happiness, freedom, and the progression of his life, and we find evil everything that hampers it.
Simone de Beauvoir, in (translated) response to the question, “What do the words ‘good’ and ‘evil’ mean for you?” (1959)
Never pump yourself dry. Leave a little for the next day. The main thing is to know when to stop. Don’t wait till you’ve written yourself out. When you’re still going good and you come to an interesting place and you know what’s going to happen next, that’s the time to stop. Then leave it alone and don’t think about it; let your subconscious mind do the work.
