Serenity, courage, and wisdom.

"Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to

Jane Carnall,
striving to be a Klingon Technical Writer because: What is this talk of
"drafts"? Klingons do not make document "drafts". Our documents escape,
leaving a bloody trail of Subject Matter Experts in their wake!
