Quotes About Unusual Weather

"The media response to unusual weather is as ritualized and predictable as the stages of grief. First comes denial: "I cant believe theres so much snow." Then anger: "Why cant I drive my car, why are the trains not running?" Then blame: "Why havent the local authorities sanded the roads, where are the snowplows, and how come the Canadians can deal with this and we cant?" This last stage goes on the longest and tends to trail off into a mumbled grumbling moan, enlivened by occasional ILLEGALS ATE MY SNOWPLOW headlines from the *Daily Mail....*" - Author: Ben Aaronovitch

Quotes About Idiots Friends

"Thats the big mistake a lot of people make when they wonder how soldiers can put their lives on the line day after day or how they can fight for something they may not believe in. Not everyone does. Ive worked with soldiers on all sides of the political spectrum; Ive met some who hated the army and others who wanted to make it a career. Ive met geniuses and idiots, but when all is said and done,we do what we do for one another. For friendship. Not for country, not for patriotism, not because were programmed killing machines, but because of the guy next to you. You fight for your friend, to keep him alive, and he fights for you, and everything about the army is built on this simple premise." - Author: Nicholas Sparks

Quotes About Sambit

"Sambit Bal may be right that this is a scandal the IPL needed. It certainly brings fans face-to-face with the tangled reality of their amusement, based as it is on a self-seeking, self-perpetuating commercial oligarchy issued licenses to exploit cricket as they please. Whether the fans care is another matter: one of the reasons Indians have embraced economic liberalisation so fervently is a shoulder-shrugging resignation about the efficiency and integrity of their institutions. Given the choice between Lalit Modi, with his snappy suits and his soi-disant Indian Peoples League, and the BCCI, stuffed with grandstanding politicians and crony capitalists, where would your loyalties lie?" - Author: Gideon Haigh

Quotes About Sales Competition

"Is the competition really some mythical beast? No, not really. Knowing how to play your group of salespeople as a team, to overcome the group objective of winning the customers support, is the objective. The opposing team in proper viewpoint is not just the similar competing business to yours. Nor is it the competing franchises of your home office.No, in order to really be effective in the market place as a surviving business, you must go beyond that philosophy. You must be willing to expand your viewpoint to fully understand who the competition truly is. Your true competition is simply this: Anywhere that your customer would spend his or her dollars as opposed to spending them at your company or place of business." - Author: Michael Delaware

Quotes About Cheapen

"But nobody else ever romped with White Fang. He did not permit it. He stood on his dignity, and when they attempted it, his warning snarl and bristling mane were anything but playful. That he allowed the master these liberties was no reason that he should be a common dog, loving here and loving there, everybodys property for a romp and good time. He loved with single heart and refused to cheapen himself or his love." - Author: Jack London

Quotes About Village To Raise A Child

"Desperate times call for desperate measures" is an aphorism which here means "sometimes you need to change your facial expression in order to create a workable disguise." The quoting of an aphorism, such as "It takes a village to raise a child," "No news is good news," and "Love conquers all," rarely indicates that something helpful is about to happen, which is why we provide our volunteers with a disguise kit in addition to helpful phrases of advice." - Author: Lemony Snicket
