efficiency

The trouble with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide. In this sense, truth, even if it does not prevail in public, possesses an ineradicable primacy over all falsehoods.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Sometimes I have a notion that what might improve the situation is to have women take over the occupations of government and trade and to give men their freedom. Let them do what they are best at. While we scrawl interoffice memos and direct national or extranational affairs, men could spend all their time inventing wheels, peering at stars, composing poems, carving statues, exploring continents -- discovering, reforming, or crying out in a sacramental wilderness. Efficiency would probably increase, and no one would have to worry so much about the Gaza Strip or an election.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We need a number of solutions - we need more efficiency and conservation. Efficiency is a big one. I think car companies need to do a lot better in producing more efficient cars. They have the technology, we just need to demand them as consumers.More [12/12/2006 12:12:00]
DuPont: The gun katas. Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire. By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increase to lethal proficiency makes the master of the gun katas an adversary not to be taken lightly.More [10/14/2007 12:10:00]
Colonel Nicholson:
We can teach these barbarians a lesson in Western methods and efficiency that will put them to shame. We'll show them what the British soldier is capable of doing.

[On the failure of their previous nanny]



Mrs. Banks:
I'm sorry, dear, but when I chose Katie Nana, I thought she would be firm with the children. She looked so solemn and cross.



George Banks:
My dear, never confuse efficiency with a liver complaint.

Hawkeye Pierce:
Frank Burns does not know his way around an operating theater, he does not know his way around a body. And if you will have observed anything, you will have observed that Major Frank Burns is an idiot. He has flipped his wig, that he's out of his head, that he's a lousy surgeon.



Hotlips O'Houlihan:
Oh on the contrary, I have observed. And Major Burns is not only a good technical surgeon, he is a good military surgeon. I have also noticed that nurses as well as enlisted men address you as "Hawkeye".



Hawkeye Pierce:
Yes because that's my name, Hawkeye Pierce.



Hotlips O'Houlihan:
Well that kind of informality is inconsistent with maximum efficiency in a military organization.



Hawkeye Pierce:
Oh come off it, MAJOR. You put me right off my fresh fried lobster, do you realize that? I'm now going to go back to my bed, I'm going to put away the best part of a bottle of scotch... And under normal circumstances, you being normally what I would call a very attractive woman, I would have invited you back to share my little bed with me you might possibly have come. But you really put me off. I mean you... You're what we call a regular army clown.

Commissare Woman:
Either you spend the rest of your life in an efficiency apartment with seven dissidents and one toilet, or you gather your aristocratic shit together and split.

Yes, master.



Count Dracula:
What is an efficiency apartment?



Renfield:
I don't know, master. What's a toilet?

Nagiko:
The smell of white paper is like the scent of skin of a new lover who has just paid a surprise visit out of a rainy garden. And the black ink is like lacquered hair. And the quill? Well, the quill is like that instrument of pleasure whose purpose is never in doubt but whose surprising efficiency one always, always forgets.

Commercial Announcer:
Do you have dry mouth?



Woman:
I sure do


[lisped]



Commercial Announcer:
It protects your teeth, fights infection, and lubricates your food. But what happens when you run out of saliva?



Woman:
Help me, I can't talk.



Commercial Announcer:
For personal dryness upstairs, it's Salivex.



Woman:
Wow, I can spit again!



Commercial Announcer:
Salivex is more than saliva in a can. Salivex improves consumption efficiency by 50%. No more halfway cures like coating your throat with cooking oil to have that extra piece of cake, or bowl of kitty litter.



Woman:
After a night out my tongue tasted like carpet. It was embarrassing. Now with Salivex I can eat a whole box of crackers, or lick my life partner's...



Man:
[dubs over] ... stamp collection...



Woman:
...all night.



Man:
It's like having a salivation army in my mouth! Now I can suck a...



Man:
[dubs over again] ... lollipop...



Man:
...for as long as I want!



Commercial Announcer:
Salivex tastes like your own saliva! That's because at Salvex's state-of-the-art production facilities, we use salivation philanthropists, who make Salivex all day! Salivex, when it comes to personal dryness upstairs, WE'RE DEADLY SERIOUS.

The underlying questions are always: What is the Church? What is the Church for? If that is not kept in mind, the lay ministry, about which so much is being said at present, remains on the level of a many-sided activity in which the self-assertion of the laity threatens to be more evident than a new manifestation of the Church in modern society. The responsible participation of the laity in the discharge of the Church's divine calling is not primarily a matter of idealism and enthusiasm or organizational efficiency, buMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
