The Only Good Diss is a Done Diss

Over the past week, a number of people left sayings like "The only good dissertation is a done dissertation" on my main blog. I'd like to continue the fun over here. Below, I will list those sayings that I know or have heard about completing the dissertation. Some of them are funny, but they are all encouraging. Do you have others to add to the list?

  • The only good dissertation is a done dissertation.

  • Pass without Embarrassment

  • The dissertation is a rough draft for a book (if you want a book out of it).

  • The dissertation is a rough, rough, rough, rough draft of a book.

  • There are two kinds of dissertations: good ones and finished ones.

  • About the dissertation: don't get it right, get it written.

  • Go with a dissertation written not a dissertation planned.

  • When three chapters are completed, you know you can finish the diss.

  • What do they call a person who writes the year's worst dissertation that passes? Doctor.

I'd never heard the one about the planned vs. written dissertation. Thanks for putting these together...inspired me to open that dreaded file for chapter 5 and work on it...at least for today. Hope it's going well on your end.
