A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on labor, men, profit, progress, sharing, society, and yielding

Society can progress if men's labors show a profit - if they yield more than is put in. To produce at a loss must leave less for all to share.

A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on change, deception, facts, hope, problems, and truth

Approach each new problem not with a view of finding what you hope will be there, but to get the truth, the realities that must be grappled with. You may not like what you find. In that case you are entitled to try to change it. But do not deceive yourself as to what you do find to be the facts of the situation.

A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on efficiency, nature, separation, thinking, and thought

Only as you do know yourself can your brain serve you as a sharp and efficient tool. Know your failings, passions, and prejudices so you can separate them from what you see. Know also when you actually have thought through to the nature of the thing with which you are dealing and when you are not thinking at all.

A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on approval, heart, mistakes, promises, and soul

Whatever task you undertake, do it with all your heart and soul. Always be courteous, never be discouraged. Beware of him who promises something for nothing. Do not blame anybody for your mistakes and failures. Do not look for approval except the consciousness of doing your best.

A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on death, horses, learning, philosophy, and success

A man sentenced to death obtained a reprieve by assuring the king he would teach his majesty's horse to fly within the year - on the condition that if he didn't succeed, he would be put to death at the end of the year. "Within a year," the man explained later, "the king may die, or I may die, or the horse may die. Furthermore, in a year, who knows? Maybe the horse will learn to fly." My philosophy is like that man's. I take the long-range view.
