It's Sunday again; another week in the books, another week ahead. As you relax today, and prepare yourself for the challenges ahead, take a moment to look over some of the quotes I've collected from some of today's more influential personalities. And as always, look, listen, and think.

On the future of US industry and the economy

"Technology is incredibly cheap, but skilled labor is incredibly expensive," -- Caller, Washington Journal

"The last thing that we should be doing is asking middle- class families who are still struggling to recover from this recession to pay more in taxes," -- Pres. Barack Obama

"I am sure the Fed is watching, will try to encourage the economy, but I don't think a massive new QE3 is going to help this economy,"-- Gov. Mitt Romney

On the 2012 US Presidential race

"Now more than ever do we need Gov. Romney. I'm going to be voting for him," -- Clint Eastwood

“It’s partly the groups you win, but it’s also minimizing your losses among the groups you’re going to lose,” says Franklin. “If Obama performs as well as he’s doing in (these polls), losing white men as a whole, but still getting well over 40% of their vote, that’s a big win.” -- Charles Franklin, political scientist

"At that point forward, when they (the American voter) see attack ads attacking the candidate they’ve decided they are going to vote for, the primary effect is to demobilize them,” -- Ted Brader, political scientist

2012 London Olympic games

"It feels amazing to be the Olympic champion," -- Gabby Douglas, Olympic gymmast

“I did it,” -- Michael Phelps, Olympic swimmer

"Everyone wants to win, but I'm on the podium .I'm the only American on the podium." -- Carmelita Jeter, Olympic sprinter
