Socialism states that you owe me something simply because I exist.

Voluntary exchange is more moral than forced redistribution.

The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.

Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth.

Ludwig Borne
In our work and in our living, we must recognize that difference is a reason for celebration and growth, rather than a reason for destruction.

Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but less interesting than looking.

Man is not the creature of circumstances, circumstances are the creatures of men. We are free agents, and man is more powerful than matter.

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.

That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.

Rather be dead than cool.

To be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing.

Before the tribunal of nature, a man has no more right to life than a rattlesnake; he has no more right to liberty than any wild beast; his right to the pursuit of happiness is nothing but a license to maintain the struggle for existence, if he can find within himself the powers with which to do it.
