All managers are losers, they are the most expendable pieces of furniture on the face of the Earth. -Ted Williams

No place is boring, if you've had a good night's sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film. -Robert Adams

I think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know. It takes no great powers or magic to reproduce somebody's face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways. -Duane Michals
