I'll trade you two MS theses, mostly done, for a PhD dissertation.

Just finish the thing. Don't let the quest for the perfect get in the way of the good enough.

30 years too late. Finish it. It really can be finished as long as you don't mind sacrificing your sanity and coming to the brink of being a homicidal maniac when your advisors "suggest" "have you considered". I kissed so many arseholes you would have thought I was looking for love in all the wrong places. I finally had to accept finishing it was the objective, not changing the world with some new discovery. Plenty of time for that when you become a post doc. Plus you get seated quicker when you put in your reservation under "Dr." Other than that be humble.

One of my advisors said, "The essential quality of a dissertation is its doneness."

Priceless. Should be the mantra of every Ph.D. candidate.

it's the last 5% that kills ya. but without that last five percent, there's sort of no point.

I get a chuckle when I hear people say: "I have all the data, I just need to write it up!" That means they are hopelessly floundering. I remember, I was there, too. Managed to thrash and dangle to completion, though.

My office mate used to say "Yeah, I'm almost done with my dissertation. I just have to write it."


hehhahehaheheheaheh


ABD theoretically means "All But Dissertation". Actually it means "All But Done".
