Its availability should never be turned into a livability whereby its periodic aberrations in turn formulate your judgements.
    — Warren Buffett

    I was a very senior minister in the Howard government and I sat around this particular table [in the prime ministerial office] in many discussions.

    As to sagacity, I should say that his judgement respecting the warmest place and the softest cushion in a room is infallible, his punctuality at meal times is admirable, and his pertinacity in jumping on people's shoulders till they give him some of the best of what is going, indicates great firmness.

    The good devout man first makes inner preparation for the actions he has later to perform.
