The average Ph.D. thesis is nothing but a transference of bones from one graveyard to another.
– J. Frank Dobie

Ah! Someone who happened to have the same thoughts— in fact, it almost mirrors! Finally— found something that tells me that I’m not too alone on this (not specifically a Ph.D thesis but more like thesis writing in general). I’m just quite excited about this for little reasons. This appeared on my Quote of the Day subscription— which often generates awesome quotes like the one by Hugo found on my sidebar.

I have previously blogged about this:
