That title, is one of the things I fought for. A lot of people said 'But it's stupid, and it's the title of a comedy movie, and people won't take it seriously,' and I'm sure there are some people who still don't. But for the most part, people do see that we really have a quality show.
It's the first war we've ever fought on the television screen and the first war that our country ever fought where the media had full reign.

A. J. P. Taylor

We were forged by that first fight in Zaire, and our lives are indelibly linked by memories and photographs, as young men and old men.
Habit is necessary; it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
