A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on business, friendship, interest, love, men, profit, and self-love

What men have called friendship is only a social arrangement, a mutual adjustment of interests, an interchange of services given and received; it is, in sum, simply a business from which those involved propose to derive a steady profit for their own self-love.

Duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680)

A Quote by Dr. Preston Bradley on bravery, business, failure, faith, giving, good, life, poverty, reward, spirituality, success, victory, and world

The world has a way of giving what is demanded of it. If you are frightened and look for failure and poverty, you will get them, no matter how hard you may try to succeed. Lack of faith in yourself, in what life will do for you, cuts you off from the good things of the world. Expect victory and you make victory. Nowhere is this truer than in business life, where bravery and faith bring both material and spiritual rewards.

A Quote by Dr. Albert Schweitzer on art, business, imagination, inspiration, life, sacrifice, and science

Reverence for life . . . does not allow the scholar to live for his science alone, even if he is very useful . . . the artist to exist only for his art, even if he gives inspiration to many. . . . It refuses to let the business man imagine that he fulfills all legitimate demands in the course of his business activities. It demands from all that they should sacrifice a portion of their own lives for others.

Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965)

All I say is, nobody has any business to go around looking like a horse and behaving as if it were all right. You don't catch horses going around looking like people, do you?

A Quote by DeWitt M. Emery on business, idleness, labor, lies, and needs

Big business can't prosper without small business to supply its needs and buy its products. Labor can't prosper so long as capital lies idle. Capital can't prosper while labor is unemployed.

Time spent in the advertising business seems to create a permanent deformity like the Chinese habit of foot-binding.
