A Quote by Herman Melville on books, dreams, facts, men, proof, and sales

If some books are deemed most baneful and their sale forbid, how then with deadlier facts, not dreams of doting men? Those whom books will hurt will not be proof against events. Events, not books should be forbid.

A Quote by Dan Brent Burt on fighting, justice, preparation, sales, style, and success

Every boxer fights differently, and every salesman has his unique style. But the results are the same- you are either a champion or just another fighter, you either get the sale or you don't. The real key to success is to do those things that will prepare you to be a champion.

A Quote by Clarence Thomas on argument, authority, certainty, congress, constitution, exercise, existence, freedom, government, limitations, nature, possessions, religion, sales, and speech

The Constitution, in addition to delegating certain enumerated powers to Congress, places whole areas outside the reach of Congress' regulatory authority. The First Amendment, for example, is fittingly celebrated for preventing Congress from "prohibiting the free exercise" of religion or "abridging the freedom of speech." The Second Amendment similarly appears to contain an express limitation on the government's authority....This Court has not had recent occasion to consider the nature of the substantive right safeguarded by the Second Amendment. If, however, the Second Amendment is read to confer a personal right to "keep and bear arms," a colorable argument exists that the Federal Government's regulatory scheme, at least as it pertains to the purely intrastate sale or possession of firearms, runs afoul of that Amendment's protections.
