“A few years ago real estate executives were coining slogans like “Stay alive till 95” and “Find something to do until 20-02” that expressed the difficulty of operating in a market that was sluggish at best. Today, nobody has the time to think up clever sayings. They are too busy making deals.”

- John Holusha. “It Was the Year of ‘Let's Make a Deal’.” The New York Times (January 11, 1998)
