  • Some seem to believe that the more times they press an elevator’s button, the faster the elevator.


  • In defeating an opponent, few things are so cost efficient as paralyzing him with ambivalence. Likewise, nothing assures the opponent’s success as much as one’s own ambivalence.


  • Many claim that “Talk is cheap.” This is too general, because some talk is quite rare. While some other talk is quite costly if believed and acted on.
