    "The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life" - Frank Lloyd Wright "The best way to predict the future is to create it" - Peter Drucker "Don't ask me who's influenced me. A lion is made up of the lambs he's digested, and I've been reading all of my life" - Charles de Gaulle "Get the habit of analysis - analysis will in time enable synthesis to become your habit of mind" - Frank Lloyd Wright "Early in life I had to chose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose the former and have seen no reason to change" - Frank Lloyd Wright "I love deadlines. I like the whoosing sound they make as they go by" - Douglas Adams

    Very quoteable show. Two of my favorites:

    "Bet you wish you could pour that in a glass and drink it"

    "And now, a commercial break, brought to you by more liquor"

    "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution or that have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ``needed'' before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents "interests,'' I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can."
