"I think nothing is more sure to drive an office editor crazy than to have some young enthusiast say, 'I threw this off last night,' or, 'I send you fresh from the pen' this or that. People who print magazines for a million readers do not want to give them that which has been thrown off. It is much better to send them something which has seasoned in the back of your table drawer for one, two, or three years." — Edward Everett Hale, in his book "Memories of a Hundred Years" (1902). Hale, who was both a magazine editor and writer in his day, is best remembered as the author of "The Man Without a Country."
