“The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power...
Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing.”

"Don't run away from adversity; run toward it."

A sheister "career adviser" told me that years ago. Said his mom told him. It means to look for opportunities to take on tough tasks that others, particularly co-workers or other kinds of colleagues, won't. It's actually really good advice. Helps out personal/professional development and builds a lot of character.

just came across this last night reading

“I read in the papers here a while back some teachers came across a survey that was sent out back in the thirties to a number of schools around the country. Had this questionnaire about what was the problems with teachin in the schools. And they come across these forms, they'd been filled out and sent in from around the country answerin these questions. And the biggest problems they could name was things like talkin in class and runnin in the hallways. Chewin gum. Copyin homework. Things of that nature. So they got one of them forms that was blank and printed up a bunch of em and sent em back out to the same schools. Forty years later. Well, here come the answers back. Rape, arson, murder. Drugs. Suicide. So think about that. Because a lot of the time when I say anything about how the world is goin to hell in a handbasket people will just sort of smile and tell me I'm gettin old. That it's one of the symptoms. But my feelin about that is that anybody that cant tell the difference between rapin and murderin people and chewin gum has got a whole lot bigger of a problem than what I've got. Forty years is not a long time neither. Maybe the next forty of it will bring some of em out from under the ether. If it aint too late.”

Steve McQueen as Michael Delaney in Le Mans (1971):

"A lot of people go through life doing things badly. Racing’s important to men who do it well. When you’re racing, it... it’s life. Anything that happens before or after... is just waiting."

It's a bit of a trope in the racing world, but I was rewatching Le Mans on AMC last night while falling asleep and the delivery in context is so, so good. For those that aren't familiar with the movie, he's a racing driver talking to a widower who just saw her new fiance get in a similar wreck as her former husband. She can't grasp the value in risking lives for racing, and he drops that on her with perfect sympathy as he grabs his helmet and heads back out for the final stint. So, so good.
