Academic Research is Like a Swimming Duck

Photograpy - Duck swimming

Academic Research is like a swimming duck. Appearing smooth and settled on the water, but paddling furiously under the water.

Nobody sees the numerous rejection letters, the sleepless nights, and times you almost quit the race… all that matters is how you finish… remember to keep smiling through it all.
