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.
