My argument is: keep the bloody bottom line at the bottom. That's where it should be.

Quoted in The Adventure Capitalists (1998)
Nobody's going to win all the time. On the highway of life you can't always be in the fast lane.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
You never gain something but that you lose something
An evil gain equals a loss
Living in a constant chase after gain compels people to expend their spirit to the point of exhaustion
And gain is gain, however small.


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
