    "Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.”  Arthur Schopenhauer

 

 

 

 

 

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Monday, December 22, 2014 - Arthur Schopenhauer

 

 

“A man can be himself only so long as he is alone.”

And

“A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.”

And

“A man’s face as a rule says more, and more interesting things, than his mouth, for it is a compendium of everything his mouth will ever say, in that it is the monogram of all this man’s thoughts and aspirations.”

And

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

And

“Boredom is just the reverse side of fascination: both depend on being outside rather

than inside a situation, and one leads to the other.”

And

“Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death.”

And

“Honor means that a man is not exceptional; fame, that he is. Fame is something which must be won; honor, only something which must not be lost.”

And

“If you want to know your true opinion of someone, watch the effect produced in you by the first sight of a letter from him.”

And

"It is with trifles, and when he is off guard, that a man best reveals his character."

And

“Men are by nature merely indifferent to one another; but women are by nature

enemies.”

And

“Money is human happiness in the abstract; he, then, who is no longer capable of

enjoying human happiness in the concrete devotes himself utterly to money.”

And

“The longer a man’s fame is likely to last, the longer it will be in coming.”

And

“The man never feels the want of what it never occurs to him to ask for.”

And

“The wise have always said the same things, and fools, who are the majority have always done just the opposite.”

And

“We can come to look upon the deaths of our enemies with as much regret as we feel for those of our friends, namely, when we miss their existence as witnesses to our success.”

And

“Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.”

The 49ers collapse last night against the San Diego Chargers…

into the simplest terms, getting back to first principles.”

And

And

“A free America, democratic in the sense that our forefathers intended it to be, means

just this: individual freedom for all, rich or poor, or else this system of government we call ‘democracy’ is only an expedient to enslave man to the machine and make him like it.”

A Few Words on Head Coaching Changes and….Cuba – Bo Pelini Goes Off On “Leaders” at University of Nebraska – Jim Harbaugh to Michigan for $48 Million over SIX years?

 

 

First a few words on the Obama Administration “normalizing relations” with the Fascist Castro Brothers in Cuba that have been terrorizing and tormenting the good Cuban People for over FIVE decades now.

It is has always been the opinion of the Members of Coaches Hot Seat that US Policy of an embargo of Cuba was…

BEYOND INSANE

….because if there is one thing that will drive-out Fascism it is the Principles of the American Republic which are hated in places like Beijing, Moscow, Tehran and Havana and those Principles of OUR country are:

Freedom

Free Speech

Free Market Capitalism

The Rule of Law

Freedom to Do Whatever the Hell YOU Want To Do Within the Law

In the end it was the Principles of the American Republic that brought down the Berlin Wall in Eastern Europe and Communism in the USSR and it will be the same in Cuba in the not.....

And

“If we win here we will win everywhere. The world is a fine place and worth the fighting for and I hate very much to leave it.” For Whom the Bell Tolls

And

“Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be. But what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today. It’s been that way all this year. It’s been that way so many times. All of war is that way.” For Whom the Bell Tolls

And

And

And

“There are some things which cannot be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring.

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Wednesday, December 17, 2014 - Leonardo da Vinci

 

 

“Necessity is the mistress and guide of nature.”

And

“Every action needs to be prompted by a motive. To know and to will are two operations

of the human mind. Discerning, judging, deliberating are acts of the human mind.”

And

“Experience, the interpreter between formative nature and the human race, teaches how that nature acts among mortals; and being constrained by necessity cannot act otherwise than as reason, which is its helm, requires her to act.”

And

“The acquisition of any knowledge is always of use to the intellect, because it may thus drive out useless things and retain the good. For nothing can be loved or hated unless it

is first known.”

And

“That is not riches, which may be lost; virtue is our true good and the true reward of its possessor. That cannot be lost; that never deserts us, but when life leaves us. As to property and external riches, hold them with trembling; they often leave their possessor in contempt, and mocked at for having lost them.”

And

“It is easier to contend with evil at the first than at the last.”

And

“He who walks straight rarely falls.”

And

“Men will seem to see new destructions in the sky. The flames that fall from it will seem

to rise in it and to fly from it with terror. They will hear every kind of animals speak in human language. They will instantaneously run in person in various parts of the world, without motion. They will see the greatest splendour in the midst of darkness. O! marvel of the human race! What madness has led you thus! You will speak with animals of every species and they with you in human speech. You will see yourself fall from great heights without any harm and torrents will accompany you, and will mingle with their rapid course.”

And

“Men standing in opposite hemispheres will converse and deride each other and

embrace each other, and understand each other’s language.”

And

“It vexes me greatly that having to earn my living has forced me to interrupt the work

and to attend to small matters.”

And

“He who does not value life does not deserve it.”

And

“As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.”

And

“Beyond a doubt truth bears the same relation to falsehood as light to darkness.”

And

“He who loves practice without theory is like the sailor who boards ship without a

rudder and compass and never knows where he may cast.”

And

“He who wishes to be rich in a day will be hanged in a year.”

Post Week 15 NFL Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – It’s Getting HOT For These Hot Seat Coaches BUT Keep Giving Them Hell Johnny Cash!

 

 

1. Mike Smith, Atlanta Falcons – In a game that Mike Smith and the Atlanta Falcons had to win somehow Smith and the Falcons found a way to lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers and now it is going to be very hard for Mike Smith to find a way to return as head coach of the Falcons in 2015.

Now at 5 – 9 on the season with these games left on the schedule…

At New Orleans Saints
Carolina Panthers

….we guess it is possible that the Falcons could win out and make it into the Playoffs then win a Playoff game BUT would even that lead to Mike Smith hanging onto his job in Atlanta?

Maybe.

First up….the Atlanta Falcons MUST win their last 2 games and hope a Helluva lot else happens in their favor!

all the other subjects about which you hear me talking and examining both myself and others is really the very best thing that a man can do, and that life without this sort of examination is not worth living.”

And

of the genius of each.”

And

born yet.”
