Note: this was too good to not re-post. From someone's signature on a local urban interest message board.

Quote
If you went into a British classroom and asked how many children wanted to be a scientist, on average 2% would put their hands up. In India, about 30% would say yes. That's the difference between the west and the emerging economies; and that's why, ultimately, if we don't address this situation, it could be us staffing their call centres.
-- Colin Pillinger, British space scientist

Quote
A rat race is for rats. We're not rats. We're human beings. Reject the insidious pressures in society that would blunt your critical faculties to all that is happening around you, that would caution silence in the face of injustice lest you jeopardise your chances of promotion and self-advancement.

This is how it starts, and, before you know where you are, you're a fully paid-up member of the rat pack. The price is too high.
-- Jimmy Reid, Trade unionist and Rector, Glasgow University, 1972.

Quote from: Theodore Roosevelt
We here in America, hold in our hands the hope of the world, the fate of the coming years; and shame and disgrace will be ours if in our eyes the light of high resolve is dimmed, if we trail in the dust the golden hopes of men.

True, this is political commentary.  More importantly, it's an example of slogans not thought through.
