If I had my way books would not be written in English, but in an exceedingly difficult secret language that only skilled professional readers and story-tellers could interpret. Then people like you would have to go to public halls and pay good prices to hear the professionals decode and read the books aloud for you. This plan would have the advantage of scaring off all amateur authors, retired politicians, country doctors and I-Married-a-Midget writers who would not have the patience to learn the secret language.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Nick: Are you upset with me for some reason?
Jack: I just feel really let down by you. I happen to know that you betrayed your wife dozens of times.
Nick: [pauses to think] Okay, if I did, that's what I did to her. What did I do to you?
Jack: You didn't tell either of us.
Nick: What, every time I have an affair with a hat-check girl, I have to run and tell you?
Jack: That's who you were having affairs with? Hat-check girls?
Nick: No! They were all top professionals in their fields. I can't tell you all their names, but two of them were Margaret Thatcher and Indira Gandhi.
Jack: When you're ready to talk intelligently, then we'll talk. Until then, forget it.More [11/24/2007 12:11:00]

Peter Penrose:
I'm afraid I'm strictly amateur.

Flight Lt. David Archdale:

Jake Taylor:
Hey! This isn't the California Penal League, Vaughn, we're professionals here! We don't tank plays for personal reasons, so cut the cry baby shit! Now, you've pitched a hell of a game, you want to finish it, don't you?

Rick Vaughn:

You are, all of you, amateurs. And international affairs should never be run by gentlemen amateurs. Do you have any idea of what sort of place the world is becoming all around you? The days when you could just act out of your noble instincts, are over. Europe has become the arena of realpolitik, the politics of reality. If you like: real politics. What you need is not gentlemen politicians, but real ones. You need professionals to run your affairs, or you're headed for disaster!

Your resume is quite impressive. 16 years of miltary experience, extensive counter-terrorism work. I'm surprised anyone could afford you, what's the catch?

I drink.

How does that affect you?

Coordination, reaction time. Top professionals try to kidnap your daughter I'll do the best I can but the service will be on par with the pay.

The inertia of the human mind and its resistance to innovation are most clearly demonstrated not, as one might expect, by the ignorant mass- which is easily swayed once its imagination is caught- but by professionals with a vested interest in tradition and in the monopoly of learning. Innovation is a twofold threat to academic mediocrities: it endangers their oracular authority, and it evokes the deeper fear that their whole, laboriously constructed intellectual edifice might collapse. The academic backwoodsmen have More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
