  • Taking too long to finish your PhD thesis? This may be your ticket out. (For a second and third opinion.) (Don't misunderstand, I mean this as a joke not an endorsement. Stop looking for a “thesis formula”; talk more to your advisor and work harder.)
  • Can't bear the thought of leaving graduate school? Change your thesis topic. (This is also a joke.)
  • — Charles Kettering. (This is not a joke.)
