My trainer don't tell me nothing between rounds. I don't allow him to. I fight the fight. All I want to know is did I win the round. It's too late for advice.
Did you know there's a difference between being busy and being fruitful? Did you ever stop to think that just being busy - running around in circles all day but not accomplishing anything - is the same as wasting your time? It's frustrating to expend so much energy and time and not have any fruit from your effort!
How well I have learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. There is a deep, wide gulf, a chasm, and in that chasm is no place for any man.
Like everything metaphysical the harmony between thought and reality is to be found in the grammar of the language.
The importance of money flows from it being a link between the present and the future.
John Maynard Keynes
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.
Cloning looks like a degrading of parenthood and a perversion of the right relation between parents and children.
In journalism, there has always been a tension between getting it first and getting it right.
I never make a distinction between private life and politics - that's a petit bourgeois thing. How can you make a stand against Nazi Germany, or in Rwanda, when you live life by making that distinction?
One of the most striking differences between a cat and a lie is that a cat has only nine lives.
To understand how any society functions you must understand the relationship between the men and the women.
I've always been fascinated by the difference between the jokes you can tell your friends but you can't tell to an audience. There's a fine line you have to tread because you don't know who is out there in the auditorium. A lot of people are too easily offended.
Well, I think that there's a very thin dividing line between success and failure. And I think if you start a business without financial backing, you're likely to go the wrong side of that dividing line.
Are you not moved to tears and bitter compassion, when you behold the only Son of God seized by the most impious, dragged away, mocked, scourged, buffeted, spit upon, crowned with thorns, hung upon the infamous cross between two thieves, finally in such a horrible and execrable manner suffering death, for your salvation and that of the world?
I've had long hair, I've had short hair, and I've had in between hair... and its all good.
The Olympics are a wonderful metaphor for world cooperation, the kind of international competition that's wholesome and healthy, an interplay between countries that represents the best in all of us.
What is the difference between unethical and ethical advertising? Unethical advertising uses falsehoods to deceive the public; ethical advertising uses truth to deceive the public.
Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.
It occurred to me that there was no difference between men, in intelligence or race, so profound as the difference between the sick and the well.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
What is a moderate interpretation of the text? Halfway between what it really means and what you'd like it to mean?
It doesn't matter whether you are pursuing success in business, sports, the arts, or life in general: The bridge between wishing and accomplishing is discipline.

Many conditions can lead to a false positive result, including flu shots, hepatitis, and pregnancy.
The distinction between children and adults, while probably useful for some purposes, is at bottom a specious one, I feel. There are only individual egos, crazy for love.
It is true that going out on to the street implies the risk of accidents happening, as they would to any ordinary man or woman. But if the church stays wrapped up in itself, it will age. And if I had to choose between a wounded church that goes out on to the streets and a sick, withdrawn church, I would definitely choose the first one.
It is not poverty so much as pretense that harasses a ruined man - the struggle between a proud mind and an empty purse - the keeping up of a hollow show that must soon come to an end.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
Leonardo da Vinci
