Personal Quote:

We need people who know how the system runs, but it really is not necessary to stay there for an entire career. When I was made a three-star general, I was congratulated and told, "Two years from now to the day, if we haven't given you another job or promotion we expect your resignation on our desk". That's not bad. See more »
