When did we begin to lose faith in our ability to effect change?
To be a nemesis, you have to actively try to destroy something, don't you? Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect.
I think the fact that I grew up in show business had a real effect on my personality. If you were born in New York during the golden age of television, and you grew up on Broadway, that marks you.
Artists should never think of themselves as an idol. Fame is a side effect of one's work.

James Earl Jones
The 'army camp' that coordinates the agencies of our brain is vulnerable, both in itself and from within. In effect, he who can know and master its functioning and psychology from outside can become twice its master.

Nature herself has never attempted to effect great changes rapidly.
'CSI' has not only remained a top-rated show through seven seasons; it has had real-world consequences.

I hurt my knee, and that messed up my running, and boy did that ever just have a cascade effect. I've gained about thirty pounds that my doctors have screamed at me about. I've got to get that off, and I know that.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
