A Quote by D. March on business, gold, people, proverbs, thought, value, and world

Proverbs are in the world of thought what gold coin is in the world of business-great value in small compass, and equally current among all people. Sometimes the proverb may be false, the coin counterfeit, but in both cases the false proves the value of the true.

A country of a thousand war-chariots cannot be administered unless the ruler attends strictly to business, punctually observes his promises, is economical in expenditure, loves the people, and uses the labor of the peasantry only at the proper times of year.

A Quote by Clarence Francis on belief, business, clarity, family, nations, problems, relationships, and world

I sincerely believe that the word "relationships" is the key to the prospect of a decent world. It seems abundantly clear that every problem you will have - in your family, in your business, in our nation, or in this world - is essentially a matter of relationships, of interdependence.

A Quote by Christopher Columbus on beginning, business, catholicism, christianity, glory, good, nations, and religion

And I say that Your Highnesses ought not to consent that any foreigner does business or sets foot here, except Christian Catholics since this was the end and the beginning of the enterprise, that it should be for the enhancement and glory of the Christian religion, nor should anyone who is not a good Christian come to these parts. Here may be found the first suggestion of the exclusive colonial policy that Spain and other nations followed.

Christopher Columbus (1451 - 1506)

A Quote by Charlie Chaplin on art, business, disillusionment, money, people, and truth

I went into the business for the money, and the art grew out of it. If people are disillusioned by that remark, I can't help it. It's the truth.

A Quote by Charles W. Nibley on business, effort, excellence, foolishness, god, labor, progress, success, and yielding

There is no excellence anywhere without labor. We would think a man foolish indeed who would say, "l am willing that my business should prosper, or that my farm should yield plentifully, but I'll not stir a peg." But he is no more foolish than the man who says, "I am willing that God should bless me abundantly, but I shall not do anything toward that end myself." We must consistently rely upon the help of the Lord, but we will not make any progress or meet with any success unless we put forth an earnest effort.

Charles W. Nibley (1849 - 1931)
