Somebody asked me - you know, how come it took you so long to win a national championship? And I said, 'I'm a slow learner; but you notice when I learn something, I have it down pretty good.'
It is important from time to time to slow down, to go away by yourself, and simply be.

Now in its third year in office, the Obama Administration has never championed the cause of human rights.
