The moment a man sets his thoughts down on paper, however secretly, he is in a sense writing for publication.

Ric Flair is one of the most entertaining guys to sit down with and by entertaining I don't mean he has catchy phrases, but that he's been through so much and his experiences are so genuine I could listen to him talk all day.
The simplest schoolboy is now familiar with truths for which Archimedes would have sacrificed his life.
