As long as I’m efficient, I’m just going to try to be the most efficient player I can be.

Bill Moyers
Loyal and efficient work in a great cause, even though it may not be immediately recognized, ultimately bears fruit.
Men and machines are good at different things. People form plans and make decisions in complicated situations. We are less good at making sense of enormous amounts of data.

People crave community, more efficient living, and easier access to the places they want to go.
