Charles M. Schulz
Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears.
People talk about games and loneliness - it's a lonely activity. I didn't understand that. 'Gears of War' was the first multiplayer game for me that I enjoyed. But I wasn't sad. I liked being alone. I liked playing games by myself. I had lots of companionship at the house.
I like switching gears. I'm kind of a chameleon.
I'm able to switch gears at any moment.

Sometimes you have to put a wrench in the gears to get people to listen.

The stereoscopic panoramic videos that we're showing on Samsung VR are getting a lot of positive traction. It's exciting when you see creative types - whether from the music, film, or video industries - look at this stuff. The gears are turning in their head almost immediately about how they can use it as a new medium.
You hit a wall at some stage when you don't want it so bad, but you don't know when that's going to be - as far as competition or as far as health is concerned. Sometimes it's just natural. You just taste it, and you want it so bad that you find other gears.

Sometimes it takes me a little longer to kick into my gears.
In the 1880s, women were decades away from earning the right to vote. Few owned property - if they were even permitted to do so.
