Habit is the daily battleground of character.” ~ Dan Coats

When you’re on a battleground, you don’t have the luxury of time to dwell on the various historical factors and sociopolitical influences that caused the war. You just keep your head down and try to survive it, to shove the pages back in the book, close the covers and pretend that nothing’s broken, nothing’s wrong.” ~ Jennifer Weiner
  32. “And do you know what a full-fledged war would look like, Percy?” “Bad?” I guessed. “Imagine the world in chaos. Nature at war with itself.

I don’t think he got it.” ~ Ilona Andrews
  37. “I’m friends with a lot of actresses, but my ‘SNL’ friends are my closest. The experience of working there is something of a battleground, a great one, but complicated. I think there’s a deep connection for having survived that workplace.” ~ Ana Gasteyer

  40. “Living as if the world out there were somehow separate from us opens the door to the belief system of judgement and the chemical expressions of that judgment in our bodies. Thus we tend to see our world in terms of good germs and bad germs, and use words such as toxins and waste to describe the by-products of the very functions that give us life. It is in such a world that our bodies may become a combat zone for forces at odds with one another, creating the biological battlegrounds that play out” ~ Gregg Braden

And you’ve gotta have targeted expenditures, great ads running against your opponent in those swing states.”” ~ Rush Limbaugh

  55. “The president is under 50 percent approval ratings in all the battleground states. So, you could say that President Obama is defying gravity by still being in a dead heat with Mitt Romney.
