Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't play with it or eat it, just pee on it and walk away.

Re: Completely general

Interesting passage from Brute: The Life of Victor Krulak, U.S. Marine, by Robert Coram:

"Few things on earth are as useless as a newly commissioned second lieutenant. Although Congress considers him an officer and a gentleman, it would take an act of God to give him the knowledge and common sense possessed by the average gunnery sergeant. The Marine Corps, wisely unwilling to wait for God to get involved in such matters, attempts to short-circuit the process by sending young lieutenants to various schools and minor assignments, hoping they do not sink, break, or blow up something in the process."

If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.

A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwords to explain why it didn't happen.

For the Intelligence Characters(I figured it should go here):

"Spend a career in covert ops and you learn a lot about yourself.  Will you lie to someone to learn something important?  Yes.  Will you betray someone to serve a higher cause?  Maybe.  Will you trade another man's life for your freedom?  You don't really know the answer until you face the question."
-Burn Notice

Chance favors the prepared mind.
