I tell you this, and I tell you plain:
What you have done, you will do again;
You will bite your tongue, careful or not, Upon the already-bitten spot.
- Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
Mignon was an American journalist and author, and also worked on both Vogue and Glamour magazines. She wrote two volumes of the Neurotic's Notebook, and is often quoted from them. The first was written in 1960. That was a good year....I must read that book!
I found this under the category of "How True", and true it is. Over and over again until you'd rather risk starvation than put anything else in your mouth.
So, has anyone out there NOT done this?
