A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on conformity, controversy, danger, fear, ideas, independence, mind, and path

Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of "crackpot" than the stigma of conformity.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on business, christianity, clarity, common sense, courage, country, decisions, doubt, divinity, education, facts, faith, force, future, humanity, leadership, life, men, nations, spirit, thinking, and vision

The greatest asset of a man, a business or a nation is faith. The men who built this country and those who made it prosper during its darkest days were men whose faith in its future was unshakable. Men of courage, they dared to go forward despite all hazards; men of vision, they always looked forward, never backward. Christianity, the greatest institution humanity has ever known, was founded by twelve men, limited in education, limited in resources, but with an abundance of faith and divine leadership. The vision essential to clear thinking; the common sense needed for wise decisions; the courage of convictions based on facts not fancies; and the constructive spirit of faith as opposed to the destructive forces of doubt will preserve our Christian ways of life.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on action, decisions, economics, finance, individuality, men, men and women, politics, questions, statistics, and women

All great questions of politics and economics come down in the last analysis to the decisions and actions of individual men and women. They are questions of human relations, and we ought always to think about them in terms of men and women-the individual human beings who are involved in them. If we can get human relations on a proper basis, the statistics, finance and all other complicated technical aspects of these questions will be easier to solve.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on atoms, destruction, enemies, knowledge, life, principles, war, and world

It was necessary for us to discover greater powers of destruction than our enemies. We did. But after every war we have followed through with a new rise in our standard of living by the application of war-taught knowledge for the benefit of the world. It will be the same with the atomic bomb principles.
