E. O. Wilson

I'm the most gregarious of men and love good company, but never less alone when alone.
When we love anyone with our whole hearts, life begins when we are with that person; it is only in their company that we are really and truly alive.

Where minds differ and opinions swerve there is scant a friend in that company.
Whether they run a record company or a grocery store, every boss will tell you you're in big trouble if you're borrowing more than you can ever afford to pay back. Delaying the pain for future generations is suicidal. We've got to start getting the deficit down right now, not next year.
