And it was back in the mid-1980s and as I point out in a piece that was when we are spending about eight percent of our gross domestic product on health care. And even then we had the impression that so much of the excessive aggressive medical treatment that took place at the end of life was not only unnecessary but it was cruel.
Windows are as essential to office prestige as Christmas is to retailing.
What I don't like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.
Most people treat the office manual the way they treat a software manual. They never look at it.
Anyone who can walk to the welfare office can walk to work.
Avon is a unique place to work we've got family-friendly policies. We have more senior women in high-level management than any other company 46 percent of our officers are women.
I want to be a cheerleader for women who have never even considered running for office or being involved in a campaign but who in the quietness of their hearts might think 'Why not me?'
Clinton is a big personality who has led a big life and for some of the media conventional wisdom to boil it down to a view that 'all people are really interested in' are a few moments of madness in the Oval Office gets him the importance of the presidency and the significance of his life all wrong.
The plan was criticized by some retired military officers embedded in TV studios. But with every advance by our coalition forces the wisdom of that plan becomes more apparent.
I had a 2-week courtship with a fellow student in the fiction workshop in Iowa and a 5-minute wedding in a lawyer's office above the coffee shop where we'd been having lunch that day. And so I sent a cable to my father saying 'By the time you get this Daddy I'll already be Mrs. Blaise!'
So instead of talking about theoretical ways of ending the war and violence I say that we have to get rid of the individual asholes in each office and situation.
We should invade their countries kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.
The British soldier can stand up to anything except the British War Office.
You can't trust a promise someone makes while they're drunk in love hungry or running for office.

Jackson went from the professor's chair to the officer's saddle. He carried with him the very elements of character which made him odious as a teacher but I never saw him in an arbitrary mood.
The office of the public teacher is an unenviable and thankless one.
The film is not a success until it makes money. It's only good when there's a dollar figure attached to the box office.
You do the work and you want people to see it but um while I'm doing the work the result doesn't matter at all to me. Ultimately I don't I don't care whether the film is - you know - some big giant box-office bonanza and I don't care if its a complete flop.
