To become Christ-like is the only thing in the whole world worth caring for, the thing before which every ambition of man is folly and all lower achievement vain.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is probably not love that makes the world go around, but rather those mutually supportive alliances through which partners recognize their dependence on each other for the achievement of shared and private goals.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At no previous period has mankind been faced by a half-century which so paradoxically united violence and progress. Its greater and lesser wars and long series of major assassinations have been strangely combined with the liberation of more societies and individuals than ever before in history, and by the transformation of millions of second-class citizens -- women, workers and the members of subject races -- to a stage at which first-rate achievement is no longer inhibited even if opportunities are not yet complete.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The best current evidence is that media are mere vehicles that deliver instruction but do not influence student achievement any more than the truck that delivers groceries causes change in our nutrition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Chance can allow you to accomplish a goal every once in a while, but consistent achievement happens only if you love what you are doing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The mind must see visual achievement of the purpose before action is initiated.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are two kinds of people; those who are always well and those who are always sick. Most of the evils of the world come from the first sort and most of the achievement from the second.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others, as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken, a case among cases, a world among worlds, that the largeness of mind, without which objectivity is self-congratulation and tolerance a sham, comes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
War has been the most convenient pseudo-solution for the problems of twentieth-century capitalism. It provides the incentives to modernization and technological revolution which the market and the pursuit of profit do only fitfully and by accident, it makes the unthinkable (such as votes for women and the abolition of unemployment) not merely thinkable but practicable. What is equally important, it can re-create communities of men and give a temporary sense to their lives by uniting them against foreigners and outsiders. This is an achievement beyond the power of the private enterprise economy when left to itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind -- not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement -- but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Thoroughness characterizes all successful men. Genius is the art of taking infinite pains. All great achievement has been characterized by extreme care, infinite painstaking, even to the minutest detail.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no achievement without goals.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Freedom is an internal achievement rather than an external adjustment.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fascism is a European inquietude. It is a way of knowing everything -- history, the State, the achievement of the proletarianization of public life, a new way of knowing the phenomena of our epoch.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Unless one is taught what to do with success after getting it, achievement of it must inevitably leave him prey to boredom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Poetry is the achievement of the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Spectacular achievement is always preceded by spectacular preparation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One should never direct people towards happiness, because happiness too is an idol of the market-place. One should direct them towards mutual affection. A beast gnawing at its prey can be happy too, but only human beings can feel affection for each other, and this is the highest achievement they can aspire to.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not the literal past that rules us, save, possibly, in a biological sense. It is images of the past. Each new historical era mirrors itself in the picture and active mythology of its past or of a past borrowed from other cultures. It tests its sense of identity, of regress or new achievement against that past.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Human Dignity has gleamed only now and then and here and there, in lonely splendor, throughout the ages, a hope of the better men, never an achievement of the majority.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If the Revolution has the right to destroy bridges and art monuments whenever necessary, it will stop still less from laying its hand on any tendency in art which, no matter how great its achievement in form, threatens to disintegrate the revolutionary environment or to arouse the internal forces of the Revolution, that is, the proletariat, the peasantry and the intelligentsia, to a hostile opposition to one another. Our standard is, clearly, political, imperative and intolerant.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Surely a man has come to himself only when he has found the best that is in him, and has satisfied his heart with the highest achievement he is fit for.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
[Retirement could be tough for the self-admitted workaholic, who received a lifetime achievement award at the British Black Music Awards last year for her 40-year music career.] I never drink, and I have never done drugs, ... All I have ever done is work, work, work my entire life.More [03/18/2006 12:03:00]

Trautman: It's good to hear your voice Johnny, it's been a long time. Look John, you've done some damage here, they don't want anymore trouble. That's why I've come. I want to come in there and fly you the hell out. Just you and me. We'll work this thing out together. Is that fair enough?
Rambo: Where did you come from Sir?
Trautman: Bragg.
Rambo: I tried to get in touch with you, but the guy's in Bragg never knew where to find you.
Trautman: You know I haven't been spending much time there lately, they've got me down in D.C. I'm shining a seat with my ass.
Rambo: I wish I was back in Bragg now.
Trautman: We'll talk about that when you come in.
Rambo: I can't do that Sir.
Trautman: Look John, we can't have you running around out there killing friendly civilians.
Rambo: There are no friendly civilians!
Trautman: But I'm your friend Johnny! I was there with you knee-deep in all that blood and guts. I covered your ass more than once. Seems like baling you out of trouble's got to be a life-time achievement for me.
Rambo: There wouldn't be no trouble except for that king shit cop! All I wanted was something to eat. But the man kept pushing Sir.
Trautman: Well you did some pushing on your own John.
Rambo: They drew first blood, not me.
Trautman: Look Johnny, let me come in and get you the hell out of there!
Rambo: They drew first blood...
Trautman: Rambo, are you still reading me? Company leader to Raven! Rambo! Acknowledge!More [11/09/2007 12:11:00]
Edward R. Murrow: No one familiar with the history of his country, can deny that congressional committees are useful. It is necessary to investigate before legislating. But the line between investigating and persecuting is a very fine one, and the Junior Senator from Wisconsin has stepped over it repeatedly. His primary achievement has been confusing the public mind as between the internal and the external threats of communism. We must not confuse dissent from disloyalty. We must remember always, that accusation is not proof, and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another, we will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason. If we dig deep into our history and our doctrine, we will remember we are not descended from fearful men. Not from men who dared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were for the moment unpopular. This is no time for men who oppose Sen. McCarthy's methods to keep silent or for those who approve. We can deny our heritage and our history but we cannot escape responsibility for the result. There is no way for a citizen of the republic to abdicate his responsibilities. As a nation we have come into our full inheritance at a tender age. We proclaim ourselves as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom wherever it still exists in the world. But we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. The actions of the Junior Senator from Wisconsin have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his, he didn't create this situation of fear, he merely exploited it, and rather successfully. Cassius was right, the fault dear Brutus is not in our stars, but in ourselves. Good night, and good luck.More [12/30/2007 12:12:00]
Choozoo: Hey crotch rot! You gonna slurp my lifer's juice out of my own cup?
Highway: Yeah, I guess I should have gotten shots before hand.
Choozoo: If your brain was half as smart as your mouth, skunk stool, you'd be a frickin' twenty star general by now.
Choozoo: And if I were half as ugly as your, Sergeant Major, I'd be a poster boy for a profilactic.
Choozoo: Still a mean and nasty bastard! Goddamn! Good to see you, Tom. Back where you belong!
Highway: Easy now, or everyone's gonna thing I'm spoken for.
Choozoo: [seeing the major in the doorway] Ten-hut! Morning, sir!
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Sergeant Major.
Choozoo: Coffee, sir?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Negative.
Highway: Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Highway, reporting for duty, sir.
[Major Powers turns and walks away]
Choozoo: That operations officer's fart hole's sewed so tight he shits out of his mouth.
Highway: Academy?
Choozoo: Big time football hero.
Highway: When am I ever going to get a break?
Choozoo: Never.
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Sergeant Major!
Choozoo: Sir!
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Bring in Gunnery Sergeant Highway.
[looking at Highway's file]
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Been in a long time.
Highway: I've felt some heat, sir.
Choozoo: Korea. Dominican. Three tours in 'Nam. Hell, this old ass in the grass bulldog's carrying around so much shrapnel he can't pass through an airport metal detector.
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: I haven't as yet had the privelige of combat. I've recently come over from supply and logistics.
Choozoo: An unappreciated field of endevour, sir.
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Quite. My record of achievement thus far as been exemplary. I fully intend for that to continue.
Highway: Sir?More [02/19/2008 12:02:00]

The title 'Geshe' literally means spiritual friend, and is granted as recognition for high academic achievement in philosophy and metaphysics.
