The beer almost makes itself, we only guide it to make it better.

Relax, your worst beer will still be better (to you) than most beer sold.
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...

Just because the majority of brewers do something a certain way, that doesn't mean it's the best/easiest/right way to do it. Experiment for yourself.

Also, take any reference more than 10 years old or so with a grain of salt. Again, experiment for yourself.

Generally that is exactly what it means.

There are some very good books  more than 10 years old or so...   How to Brew, Designing Great Beers off the top of my head

Don't ask what your country can brew for you, ask what you can brew for your country.

That's pretty much the way I read it at first glance, too.

Drink every beer you can, brew often, learn from every batch, there are no rules.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Don't over water your hops. You can kill cascades. (Well I can at least.)
