Marye Tharp

All aspects of my game need improvement. There's not one part of my game that's perfect. That's the challenge of being a professional athlete. Michael Jordan was close to perfect and he could still have a bad game. You can never be perfect and it just makes you work that much harder.

Andrew Bogut

Sex is the great amateur art. The professional, male or female, is frowned on: he or she misses the point, and spoils the show.

David Cort

Advice to aspiring models: Believe in yourself. Listen to the photographers you work with, and try to be professional at all time.

Alessandra Corine Ambrosio

Those who have taken upon them to lay down the law of nature as a thing already searched out and understood, whether they have spoken in simple assurance or professional affectation, have therein done philosophy and the sciences great injury. For as they have been successful in inducing belief, so they have been effective in quenching and stopping inquiry; and have done more harm by spoiling and putting an end to other men's efforts than good by their own. Those on the other hand who have taken a contrary course, and asserted that absolutely nothing can be known whether it were from hatred of the ancient sophists, or from uncertainty and fluctuation of mind, or even from a kind of fullness of learning, that they fell upon this opinion have certainly advanced reasons for it that are not to be despised; but yet they have neither started from true principles nor rested in the just conclusion, zeal and affectation having carried them much too far.... Now my method, though hard to practice, is easy to explain; and it is this. I propose to establish progressive stages of certainty. The evidence of the sense, helped and guarded by a certain process of correction, I retain. But the mental operation which follows the act of sense I for the most part reject; and instead of it I open and lay out a new and certain path for the mind to proceed in, starting directly from the simple sensuous perception.

Francis Bacon

Perhaps you think that any fool could become a member of the SS. Do you really know what an SS soldier is? He is a superman. He is a professional chosen personally by Hitler.

Klaus Barbie

People reserve their best thinking for their professional specialties and, next in line, for serious matters confronting the alert citizeneconomics, politics, the disposal of nuclear waste, etc. The days work done, they want to be entertained.

Saul Bellow

Professional standards, the standards of ambition and selfishness, are always sliding downward toward expense, ostentation, and mediocrity. They tend always to narrow the ground of judgment. But amateur standards, the standards of love, are always straining upward toward the humble and the best. They enlarge the ground of judgment. The context of love is the world.

Wendell Berry

So you see there is a difference between doing something professional, and only talking about it. And all that people there in the Internet, bashing or whatever, they cannot tell a fucking story for 5 minutes.

Uwe Boll

I'm trying to be a professional singer. ... I've never been given the chance before. But here's hoping it'll change.

Susan Boyle

There is a flavor that our time (perhaps surfeited by the clumsy imitations of professional patriots) does not usually perceive without some suspicion: the fundamental flavor of the heroic.

Jorge Luis Borges
