"Low and high. Always remember that."
"Never forget: the more you sell, the more you maintain."
Of course, maybe when I dreamed I was a stockbroker, my brain was actually generating a Brechtian satire of corporate culture. If so, it worked. The fourth thing my supervisor said was, "Keep up this volume level, and we'll give you a reward."

Who needs an alarm clock when you've got this much implausibility?
