The divest campaign, or Keep it in the Ground or the carbon bubble, ignore reality that 80 percent of the investment in the industry has to be done just to stand still to arrest decline. It is a red herring, it is a very seductive argument and that is why it catches on, but it is a red herring.
In 1994, Signe Mayfield said in The Palo Alto Cultural Center: "A more contained approach to the figure is seen in the lyrical drawing Bend, 1991, by Stephen Namara. In contrast to Neri's expressionistic forms, Namara has depicted the calisthenic stance of the figure in a pure, linear arabesque.

You can always differentiate cheap restaurants from high-class restaurants by looking at the menus that they offer. Cheap and low class restaurants always talk about "You", like "All You Can Eat", "Your Choice" etc. High class and expensive restaurants, on the other hand, always offer their own terms, such as "Chef's Choice", "Gourmet Food" etc. When you are the best and cut above the rest, you don't need to lure with inciting and seductive language to attract. Your quality par excellence and high standards will do that job very well. Strive to be extraordinary, and the world will follow you.

It’s easy to find failures, and it’s easy to be seduced by failure. It’s much easier to think, “Well, everybody else has failed; no big deal if I do,” than to ignore that and plod on the other way. It takes love and passion for what you do to overcome that and to overcome the “Naysayers.”
