He says, "The weak ones who are licked or partially licked will stall here. Will you listen to the little imps whispering in your ears that writing down the things you ought to do is merely piffle? Or will you put things down in black and white that need to be done and never quit until you can say, 'Done!'"
I say, don't dismiss Mr. Danforth's ideas as merely piffle. Over the years, they have proven to be true. More than 10
