A Quote by B. C. Forbes on business, profit, satisfaction, and yielding

Any business arrangement that is not profitable to the other fellow will in the end prove unprofitable for you. The bargain that yields mutual satisfaction is the only one that is apt to be repeated.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on business, government, justice, persecution, prosperity, and service

[Government] "help" to business is just as disastrous as government persecution . . . the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on business, conflict, desires, destruction, interest, lies, men, practicality, reality, sacrifice, trade, understanding, value, and work

Did it ever occur to you, that there is no conflict of interests among men, neither in business nor in trade nor in their most personal desires - if they omit the irrational from their view of the possible and destruction from their view of the practical? There is no conflict, and no call for sacrifice, and no man is a threat to the aims of another - if men understand that reality is an absolute not to be faked, that lies do not work, that the unearned cannot be had, that the undeserved cannot be given, that the destruction of a value which is, will not bring value to that which isn't.

Public relations, in this country, is the art of adapting big business to a democracy so that the people have confidence that they are being well served and at the same time the business has freedom to serve them well.

A Quote by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington on business, order, and time

Call on a business man only at business times, and on business; transact your business, and go about your business, in order to give him time to finish his business.

A Quote by Arthur Dunn on business, children, difficulty, friendship, neighbors, people, and wishes

Why should the Golden Rule be so difficult in business and foreign relations? The happily married treat each other as they wish to be treated. They treat their children better than they wish to be treated themselves. Unless we do unto a friend as we do unto ourselves, we lose a friend. In an emergency we rush to the aid of our neighbor. Is it so great a step to realize that all people everywhere are neighbors?

A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on business, courage, justice, people, time, trust, understanding, world, and writers

My business is to be talented, that is, to be capable of selecting the important moments from the trivial ones. . . . It's about time for writers - particularly those who are genuine artists - to recognize that in this world you cannot figure out everything. Just have a writer who the crowds trust be courageous enough and declare that he does not understand everything, and that alone will represent a major contribution to the way people think, a long leap forward.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 - 1904)
