I will not be in the position of having management dictated to by labor.
Personality is to a man what perfume is to a flower.
I was once ask if a big business man ever reached his objective. I replied that if a man ever reached his objective he was not a big business man.
The man who has done his best has done everything.
A man to carry on a successful business must have imagination. He must see things as in a vision, a dream of the whole thing.
A man who trims himself to suit everybody will soon whittle himself away.
When a man has put a limit on what he will do, he has put a limit on what he can do.
There's no limit possible to the expansion of each one of us.
All successful employers are stalking men who will do the unusual, men who think, men who attract attention by performing more than is expected of them.
The first essential in a boy's career is to find out what he's fitted for, what he's most capable of doing and doing with a relish.
I have probably purchased fifty 'hot tips' in my career, maybe even more. When I put them all together, I know I am a net loser.
Lead the life that will make you kindly and friendly to everyone about you, and you will be surprised what a happy life you will lead.
