Training - training is everything; training is all there is to a person.
We speak of nature; it is folly; there is no such thing as nature;
what we call by that misleading name is merely heredity and training.
We have no thoughts of our own, no opinions of our own;
they are transmitted to us, trained into us.
All that is original in us, and therefore fairly creditable
or discreditable to us, can be covered up and hidden
by the point of a cambric needle, all the rest being atoms
contributed by, and inherited from, a procession of ancestors
that stretches back a billion years to the Adam-clam
or grasshopper or monkey from whom our race has been
so tediously and ostentatiously and unprofitably developed.
And as for me, all that I think about in this plodding sad pilgrimage,
this pathetic drift between the eternities,
is to look out and humbly live a pure and high and blameless life,
and save that one microscopic atom in me that is truly me:
the rest may land in Sheol and welcome for all I care.
- Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

A multi-purpose stadium is an absolute must in order
to invigorate our downtown and,
simultaneously, let the rest of the country witness

The most important thing however is the money.
What use would it be to us, to have a a mighty stadium but a useless team,

San Francisco has always been my favorite booing city.

Music, that's what it is to me.
One time in Kezar Stadium they gave me a standing boo.
- George Halas

I've been to two stadium gigs in my life.
One was James Brown and the other was Pink Floyd.
They both sounded the same.

I don't pay attention to target audiences and therefore
I often hear that I am a ratings killer,
somebody who fundamentally doesn't care whether one
person is watching or an entire soccer stadium.

The two designs are completely different.
The first is totally futuristic, the second is more classical.

But each to his or her own taste.
