„I want to win the right way. I’m very competitive. I’ve got a strong will to win, but I want to win the right way. That’s my focus.“

—  Kenneth Chenault American business executive 1951
Context: After 9-11, I told our senior management team that this was a tremendous leadership challenge that each of us was facing and I wanted them to be courageous. I wanted them to be decisive, to not shirk away from taking tough actions. I also told them to be compassionate. If the organization believed that they were not compassionate, particularly in these times, they would lose their privilege to lead. I wouldn’t be the one to take away their leadership – the organization – the people — would. Compassion can be offered without sacrificing a sense of urgency or a strong will to win. That’s one of the values I believe in very strongly, and I talk about it in the organization. I want to win the right way. I’m very competitive. I’ve got a strong will to win, but I want to win the right way. That’s my focus.<!-- ** p. 17

„I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously.“

—  Christine O'Donnell American Tea Party politician and former Republican Party candidate 1969
Context: Eddie Izzard: What if someone comes to you in the middle of the Second World War and says, "Do you have any Jewish people in your house?" and you do have them. That would be a lie. That would be disrespectful to Hitler. Christine O'Donnell: I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that! Bill Maher: God is not there. Hitler's there and you're there. Christine O'Donnell: You never have to practice deception. God always provides a way out.
