One could easily argue that there was just too much left to do in this one episode.” ~ Hank Stuever

  58. “Yes no yes no yes no? Red blue? Yes red, no blue? No red, yes no? In out, up down? Do don’t, can can’t? Choices sit on the shelf life New shoes in a shoe shop. If the in crowd are squeezing into a must-have shoe And the one pair left are too tiny for you Don’t feel compelled into choosing them If you’re really a size 9, buy that size. While everyone else Hobbles round with sore feet Your choices should feel comfortable Or they aren’t your choices at all. Why limp when you can sprint” ~ Sir David Baird, 1st Baronet

What you see is what you get.” ~ Nia Long

Wallace Stegner, who was one of my teachers when I was at Stanford, preached that writing a novel is not something that can be done in a sprint. That it’s a marathon. You have to pace yourself. He himself wrote two pages every day and gave himself a day off at Christmas. His argument was at the end of a year, no matter what, you’d got 700 pages and that there’s got to be something worth keeping.” ~ Scott Turow
  64. “Any Scrum without working product at the end of a sprint is a failed Scrum.” ~ Jeff Sutherland
  65. “I’m looking forward to Phoenix. I ran well there last year in the Nationwide Series, and it was one of the tracks I made four Sprint Cup starts at last season. In the Cup race last year, I had a good run going for it being my first time there in a Cup car, and unfortunately got damage from an accident. It’s not a restrictor-plate race, so this will be the first time this season that I will run a lot of laps in practice. It’s also the first race for the new qualifying format, so it will be interesting to see how that works out. Overall, I just want to have a solid run in the BRANDT Chevy.” ~ Justin Allgaier
