I only discovered the 'Harry Potter' series in my tenth standard. I dived right into it, often reading non-stop through the day and night.

In order to stand well in the eyes of the community, it is necessary to come up to a certain, somewhat indefinite, conventional standard of wealth.
I work hard and I have a standard of excellence - and I expect everyone at the Interior Department to meet that same standard. I delegate a lot.

The standard library saves programmers from having to reinvent the wheel.
While there are many varieties of grills, each with their own virtues to be sure, I prefer the standard Weber kettle grill. Don't be fooled into thinking that you need any fancy gadgets in order to take advantage of cooking over a live fire. Just a good set of tongs and you're set.

Journalists ask me all the time, 'Akshay, do you believe in the numbers game?' My standard response: 'I can't count, that's why I have producers and accountants who calculate for me. As long as I have them in my life, I don't need to worry about numbers!'
Education, doing homework, is the way to lift up girls. Around the world, where girls are educated, the economy and the standard of living rise.
Crony capitalism is much easier than competing in an open market. But it erodes our overall standard of living and stifles entrepreneurs by rewarding the politically favored rather than those who provide what consumers want.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
