“I’ll be a good sport and shed my bars when my ship crosses the starting line,” he [James T. Kirk] said, “but until then, you watch your sportsmanship.  Fairness doesn’t get anybody anywhere.  Every running river knows that.  Some rocks get washed away.  Some hold their ground and eventually they turn the river.  Why run a race where everything’s ‘fair’?  You’ll never know how you really did.”
