A Quick Inspirational Quote

“We had no idea what we were doing, none whatsoever, and I think that’s an important lesson, because sometimes you just need to do things, and sometimes thinking too much and knowing too much can hurt more than it can help.”

-Ron Gilbert, in his postmortem of Maniac Mansion
