Maybe we should consider this for a second. Maybe, instead of surrendering the fight because a Marine made a mistake, maybe we should train Santiago. What do you think, I'm just spit-balling, but maybe we, as officers, have a responsibility to this country to see that the men charged with its security are trained professionals. Maybe we have that responsibility to other members of the Corps. Yes, yes, I'm certain I once read something like that. See, and now I'm trying to think about how I'd feel if some Marine got hurt or killed because a Pfc. in my command didn't know what the fuck he was doing. And I'm trying to think about how the other members of his unit might feel, putting their lives in the hands of a man they can't count on ... and this brief meditation has brought me around to thinking that your suggestion of transferring Private Santiago off base, while expeditious, and certainly painless, might not be, in a manner of speaking, the "American Way".Aaron Sorkin Sorkin Sayings By Aaron Sorkin: Maybe we should consider this for a second.

My parents took me to see plays, starting from when I was very little. Oftentimes, I was too young to understand.

In truth, in the fairy-tale version of bailing out Lehman, the next domino, A.I.G., would have fallen even harder.

What if the slowdown in merger activity isn't cyclical, but secular?

Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a company is not allowed to provide a personal benefit to a decision maker in return for business.

The greater fool is actually an economic term. It's a patsy. For the rest of us to profit, we need a greater fool - someone who will buy long and sell short. Most people spend their life trying not to be the greater fool; we toss him the hot potato, we dive for his seat when the music stops. The greater fool is someone with the perfect blend of self-delusion and ego to think that he can succeed where others have failed. This whole country was made by greater fools.Aaron Sorkin Sorkin Sayings By Aaron Sorkin: The greater fool is actually an economic term. It's a patsy. For the rest of

Debt, we've learned, is the match that lights the fire of every crisis.

We lead the world in only 3 categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined, 25 of whom are allies. Now none of this is the fault of 20 year old college student, but you nonetheless are without a doubt a member of the worst period generation period ever period, so when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world I don't know what the f^&k you're talking about.Aaron Sorkin Sorkin Sayings By Aaron Sorkin: We lead the world in only 3 categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number
When a movie is being rolled out, the studio publicists and all our individual publicists get together and come up with bullet points and talking points - 'Make sure you stay away from this,' and 'Don't say that quite that way, because that quote can be taken out of context,' and that kind of thing.Aaron Sorkin Sorkin Sayings By Aaron Sorkin: When a movie is being rolled out, the studio publicists and all our individual publicists

One of the biggest challenges in the past for me in working on the networks was that audiences have grown accustomed to television being something that keeps you company-background music, something that you have on while you're flipping through a magazine, cooking dinner, talking on the phone, putting the kids to bed.Aaron Sorkin Sorkin Sayings By Aaron Sorkin: One of the biggest challenges in the past for me in working on the networks
