Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil.
J. Paul Getty

Ludwig van Beethoven
I think we judge talent wrong. What do we see as talent? I think I have made the same mistake myself. We judge talent by people's ability to strike a cricket ball. The sweetness, the timing.

Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.
William Butler Yeats

Ulysses S. Grant

Lawrence G. Lovasik
Animal abuse is rampant in the U.S., right under everyone's eyes, for the entertainment of the public. The brutal confinement and pain of training methods of wild animals in the circus, the aquatic and theatrical shows, leads to retaliation by the animals.

The affections are like lightning: you cannot tell where they will strike till they have fallen.
There shall be no solution to this race problem until you, yourselves, strike the blow for liberty.
Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.
I just think it's silly to be stingy with compliments. If you see someone and they strike you as beautiful in any way, why not let them know?
