Pro advice

Once an editor handed me a raw deal, and I went with a howl to my friend Bill for advice. He was a writer of twenty years’ experience, and a man of wisdom. He heard my howl, and then smiled.
“Remember one thing,” he said. “Before you do or say anything rash, just reflect that the editor is the man that sends out the checks.”
(H. Bedford-Jones, This Writing Business, 1929)
