Nothing is more useless to a pilot than air in the fuel tanks, runway behind you or a half a second ago.

Said another way, don’t run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas all at the same time. If you have airspeed, you can gain altitude, if you have altitude you have time to get ideas and energy to get airspeed.

The only time you have too much fuel is when you’re on fire.
