Against About

Holiday Inn comes in at the bottom of the market, but they can't go upmarket except if they emulate the Four Seasons.

- Dan Glickman

Through Some

Think Play

I think that players play, and they compete, and it's not about incentives.

Teach Give

Instead of getting hard ourselves and trying to compete, women should try and give their best qualities to men - bring them softness, teach them how to cry.

- John Ensign

Other Use

- John Key

Week Other

Starting my own business was kind of a wakeup call in a number of different ways.

Avoid demonizing television, computer games, and new technologies. Electronic media may compete for kids' attention, but we're not going to get kids reading by badmouthing other entertainment. Admit that TV and games can do things books can't.

- Jon Scieszka

Fiction Subject

It's such a rich experience when you enter into a subject from a documentary point of view. It's hard for fiction to compete with that.
