I would rather have one article a day of this sort; and these ten or twenty lines might readily represent a whole day's hard work in the way of concentrated, intense thinking and revision, polish of style, weighing of words.

  • The real opportunity is to harness the inventive power of the world to locally design and produce solutions to local problems.

You know, it's one thing if [ a celebrity ] has an incredible character and you're really going to be able to delve into their personality – that's great.

Resolve that neither the state nor nation, nor both combined, shall support institutions of learning other than those sufficient to afford every child growing up in the land of opportunity of a good common school education, unmixed with sectarian, pagan, or atheistical dogmas. Leave the matter of religion to the family altar, the church and the private school supported entirely by private contributions. Keep the church and state forever separate.

But we also need to depend on our own insights and imagination to cultivate, from our own experience, a way to move forward.

  • In our business, the windows of opportunity open and close with dazzling rapidity...I constantly have to remind people to seize the moment.

  • I recommend allowing others the opportunity to fully express themselves before turning our attention to solutions or requests for relief. When we proceed too quickly to what people might be requesting, we may not convey our genuine interest in their feelings and needs; instead, they may get the impression that we're in a hurry to either be free of them or to fix their problem.
