Knowledge in the form of an informational commodity indispensable to productive power is already, and will continue to be, a major --perhaps the major --stake in the worldwide competition for power.

In sport, mental imagery is used primarily to help you get the best out of yourself in training and competition. The developing athletes who make the fastest progress and those who ultimately become their best make extensive use of mental imagery.

Ryan Flynn: [to Melanie] What's wrong?

Ryan Flynn: No! You just have to believe there's more to life than one long winter.

Tracy Flick: You might think it upset me that Paul Metzler had decided to run against me but nothing could be further from the truth. He was no competition for me; it was like apples and oranges. I had to work a little harder, that's all, see I believe in the voters; they understand that elections aren't just popularity contests, they know this country was built by people just like me who work very hard and don't have everything handed to them on a silver spoon. Not like some rich kids who everybody likes because their fathers owns Metzlers cement and give them trucks on their 16th birthday and throw them big parties all the time. No, they don't ever have to work for anything. They think they can just all of a sudden one day out of the blue waltz right in with no qualifications what's so ever and try to take away what other people have worked very, very hard for their entire lives. No, it didn't bother me at all.More [10/08/2007 12:10:00]

I tried to laugh, but I couldn't. It stuck in my throat... He's got goodness, Mabel. Do you know what that is?... No, of course you don't. We've forgotten. We're too busy being smart alecks.

Well all I have to say is too bad it wasn't a baldy contest.



Archie Bunker:
You hear that, he's always on the baldy thing over here. You're gonna lose an old friend that way, Barney.



Mike Stivic:
That's competition for you: two best friends ready to bust each other in the chops over who's got the most beautiful grandchild.



Barney Hefner:
Hey, you know what just occured to me about little Joey? I mean since he's got those long, beautiful eyelashes? You should've entered him as a baldy girl.



Mike Stivic:
Hey. Watch what you're saying, that's my son.

I wanna teach you what I do know. I will teach you how to have a runner's strength. The cunning of a handball player, and how, like a boxer to be fearless of pain. Are you interested?

I'm talking about a lot of work, total concentration, total committment, don't take up my time and then quit.
