„Be Nice. Contrary to the cliché, genuinely nice guys most often finish first or very near it.“

—  Malcolm Forbes, Context: Be Nice. Contrary to the cliché, genuinely nice guys most often finish first or very near it. I admit it's not easy when you've got a gripe. To be agreeable while disagreeing — that's an art. Be natural — write the way you talk. "How to Write a Business Letter" —an advertisement for International Paper Company (1979)

„No more Mister Nice Guy,
No more Mister Clean“

—  Alice Cooper American rock singer, songwriter and musician 1948
Context: I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing 'Til they got a hold of me. I opened doors for little old ladies, I helped the blind to see. I got no friends 'cause they read the papers. They can't be seen with me and I'm gettin' real shot down And I'm feeling mean. No more Mister Nice Guy, No more Mister Clean, No more Mister Nice Guy, They say he's sick, he's obscene. "No More Mr. Nice Guy" (co-written with Michael Owen Bruce) - Full lyrics online http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=3596 - YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZnhuOEUFXA.
