„When a man is asked if he is an esquire, and he answers that he is an esquire, the general understanding is that he is a person of no profession or occupation.“

„He's very arrogant, he's very aggressive when he fields, and when he bats as well. He's just a very aggressive person.“

—  Lendl Simmons West Indian cricketer 1985
Context: When he (Virat Kohli) fielded, he said something to me, and I said to myself, 'I'm going to show you you're not the only good batsman.' That's the way he is. He's very arrogant, he's very aggressive when he fields, and when he bats as well. He's just a very aggressive person. Those things motivate our players and it certainly motivated me. That really urged me to bat the way I did - to show him that he's not the only one who can do it. That played a big role. Lendl Simmons after winning the man of the match of West Indies' victory over India in the ICC World Twenty20 2016 semi-final, expressing on the arrogancy of Virat Kohli that motivated him to play a match-winning knock in Mumbai. He quoted it to Espncricinfo 'Very arrogant' Virat Kohli motivated me to knock India out of World T20: Lendl Simmons http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/16019444/lendl-simmons-talks-playing-t20-west-indies-franchises-world 7 June, 2016

„To understand Trump, you have to grasp the General Theory: He judges every action, every pronouncement, every person by a single criterion — whether or not it/he is “nice” to Trump.“

—  Charles Krauthammer American journalist 1950
Context: Donald Trump, the man who defied every political rule and prevailed to win his party’s nomination, last week took on perhaps the most sacred political rule of all: Never attack a Gold Star family. Not just because it alienates a vital constituency but because it reveals a shocking absence of elementary decency and of natural empathy for the most profound of human sorrows — parental grief. Why did Trump do it? It wasn’t a mistake. It was a revelation. It’s that he can’t help himself. His governing rule in life is to strike back when attacked, disrespected or even slighted. To understand Trump, you have to grasp the General Theory: He judges every action, every pronouncement, every person by a single criterion — whether or not it/he is “nice” to Trump.
