There is no such thing as great talent without great will-power.
In matters of style, swim with the current;
In matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Never make concessions.

We shall not be diverted from our course. To those waiting with bated breath for that favourite media catch-phrase, the U-turn, I have only this to say.You turn if you want; the lady's not for turning.
The mark of a moderate man is freedom from his own ideas. Tolerant like the sky, all-pervading like sunlight, firm like a mountain, supple like a tree in the wind, he has no destination in view and makes use of anything life happens to bring his way.
