A Quote by James Franklin Bell

To keep ahead, each of us, no matter what our task, must search for new and better methods - for even that which we now do well must be done even better tomorrow.

A Quote by James Franklin Bell on business, control, darkness, distrust, fulfillment, honesty, honor, necessity, trust, virtue, and world

Aside from the strictly moral standpoint, honesty is - not only the best policy, but the only possible policy from the standpoint of business relations. The fulfillment of the pledged word is of equal necessity to the conduct of all business. If we expect and demand virtue and honor in others, the flame of both must burn brightly within ourselves and shed their light to illuminate the erstwhile dark corners of distrust and dishonesty. . . . The truthful answer rests for the most part within ourselves, for like begets like. Honesty begets honesty; trust, trust; and so on through the whole category of desirable practices that must govern and control the world's affairs.
