1. Everything really does go better with bacon, but pancetta is an awfully good substitute. 2. You can't lead if no one is following. 3. A life that is not a romance isn't worth living. 4. Washington, DC never looks better than it does receding into a rear-view mirror. 5. "Did you exchange a walk-on role in a war for a lead role in a cage?" (with thanks to Pink Floyd). 6. The biggest impact you can have in the world is mentoring others. 7. The only real James Bond is Sean Connery, and the only real pizza comes from New Jersey and its suburbs. 8. No matter how hard one tries, markets cannot be thwarted. 9. Never leave a positive sentiment unspoken. 10. Who is John Galt?

-- Clint Bolick
