A Quote by Shana Alexander on america, constitution, custom, jobs, luck, presidency, rules, wives, and women

Roughly speaking, the President of the United States knows what his job is. Constitution and custom spell it out, for him as well as for us. His wife has no such luck. The First Lady has no rules; rather each new woman must make her own.

A Quote by Scott Raymond Adams on jobs, managers, motivation, obstacles, people, and principles

I'm slowly becoming a convert to the principle that you can't motivate people to do things, you can only demotivate them. The primary job of the manager is not to empower but to remove obstacles.

A Quote by Samuel Smith Drury on children, good, jobs, medicine, mistakes, music, and parenthood

The parent's job year in and year out, here a little and there a little, is to build up a disposition of good sportsmanship, of taking one's medicine, of facing the music, of being reviled and reviling not. This sense of not always being right, of recognition that perhaps we've made a mistake, seems left out of some grown-up children.

A Quote by Samuel Goldwyn on jobs, men, and truth

I don't want any "yes-men" around me. I want everybody to tell me the truth even if it costs them their jobs.

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on america, clarity, country, economics, experience, growth, history, improvement, income, jobs, restaurants, sharing, success, and taxes

Regarding the Economy & Taxation: The record of economic success during the 1980's is clear: 18.6 million new jobs were created, increasing U.S. civilian employment by 20 percent. Only 12 percent of these jobs were in low-paid restaurant and retail areas, while 82 percent were in high-paid technical, managerial and professional areas. Once Reagan's tax cuts kicked in (fiscal year 1982), the country experienced 92 months of economic growth without a recession. This represented the longest period of sustained peacetime economic growth in American history. America's most successful achievers do pay a higher share of the total tax burden. The top one percent income earners paid 18 percent of the total tax burden in 1981, and paid 25 percent in 1991. The bottom 50 percent of income earners paid only 8 percent of the total tax burden, and paid only 5 percent in 1991. History shows that tax cuts have always resulted in improved economic growth producing more tax revenue in the treasury.

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on bankers, blindness, business, cities, driving, government, jobs, leadership, and machines

government barriers on Business For example, the Endangered Species Act prevents 'disturbing the habitat' of the spotted owl. That has restricted 4.2 million acres of forest from development, leading to the loss of 30,000 lumber-related jobs and the annual loss of 1.1 billion board feet of lumber. This has driven up the cost of houses by at least $4,000 each. In addition, regulators ordered a Kansas City bank to install a Braille keypad on its drive-through automatic teller machine, presumably to aid any blind drivers. The list goes on and on.

A Quote by Rudyard Kipling on garden, glory, jobs, thankfulness, and work

Then seek your job with thankfulness and work till further orders, If it's only netting strawberries or killing slugs on borders; And when your back stops aching and your hands begin to harden, You will find yourself a partner in the Glory of the Garden.

A Quote by Ronald Wilson Reagan on jobs, niceness, and quotations

That's the nice thing about this job. You get to quote yourself shamelessly. If you don't, Larry Speakes will.
