The Big D
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
Substituting "page" for "day" in the above would not make it less helpful where dissertators are concerned.
