A Quote by Sam Walton on company and money

There is only one boss-the customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down simply by spending his money somewhere else.

A Quote by Robert Burton on company


Homer himself must beg if he want means, and as by report sometimes he did "go from door to door and sing ballads, with a company of boys about him."

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on certainty, company, electricity, men, power, time, and wisdom

Wisdom is like electricity. There is no permanently wise man, but men capable of wisdom, who, being put into certain company, or other favorable conditions, become wise for a short time, as glasses rubbed acquire electric power for a while.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on age, company, etiquette, friendship, immortality, impatience, libraries, men, thought, and words

Consider what you have in the smallest well-chosen library-a company of the wisest and wittiest men which can be plucked out of all civilized countries in a thousand years. The men themselves were then hidden and inaccessible. They were solitary, impatient of interruption, and fenced by etiquette. But now they are immortal, and the thought they did not reveal, even to their bosom friends, is here written out in transparent words of light to us, who are strangers of another age.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Ralph Cordiner on company, dignity, and risk

When it's over it should be over. When a man is no longer at risk, he loses touch. I think these fellows who think they have some long-term right to dignity and salary and expense accounts and company planes are all wrong. On December 21, 1963 I walked out of there and said that's it: no office, no secretaries. Nothing.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on behavior, belief, business, company, competition, ethics, purity, questions, travel, truth, and world

The question is, when so many others cut corners, shave the truth, self-deal, believe in the fast buck, and follow the crowd along the low road of least resistance, can we even afford to travel the high road of ethical behavior? Frankly, we can't afford anything else. Any other competitive angle is a pure crapshoot in today's business world. Companies with shaky ethics and shabby standards will be crippled as they try to compete in our changing world.

A Quote by Pilpay on affliction, company, friendship, honesty, joy, men, pleasure, secrets, value, and world

Honest men esteem and value nothing so much in this world as a real friend. Such a one is as it were another self, to whom we impart our most secret thoughts, who partakes of our joy, and comfort us in our affliction; add to this, that his company is an everlasting pleasure to us.
