Neil deGrasse Tyson
When you play professionally, you get accustomed to turnover. Players come and go - they get injured, they get transferred, they get cut from the team. Coaches are hired, and coaches are fired. It's just part of the world you live in.

I'm so accustomed to being alone.
In our so-called democracy we are accustomed to give the majority what they want rather than educate them to understand what is best for them.
