A Quote by Ralph Hendershot on business, direction, facts, men, nations, past, problems, and talent

It is probably safe to say that the best brains of the nation are to be found in industry. This is partly because industry can afford to pay the highest prices for talent, and also because of the training men receive in that field. That this fact is not more apparent is due in part to the reluctance of business men to reveal their accomplishments to the public, and also because they have directed their energies in the past almost exclusively to production problems.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on accidents, achievement, conscience, ethics, excellence, money, talent, and technology

We can't achieve excellence through talent alone. Or merely by making technological improvements. We can't even buy our way to excellence, no matter how much money we have available to spend. More dollars will never do it. We have to develop a strong corporate conscience. Ethical muscle. And that doesn't happen by accident either.

A Quote by Pierre Bayle on authors, books, happiness, inventions, talent, thought, and wit

There is not less wit nor less invention in applying rightly a thought one finds in a book, than in being the first author of that thought. Cardinal du Perron has been heard to say that the happy application of a verse of Virgil has deserved a talent.

Pierre Bayle (1647 - 1706)

There are two kinds of talents, man-made talent and God-given talent. With man-made talent you have to work very hard. With God-given talent, you just touch it up once in a while.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on certainty, day, labor, men, poets, reason, superiority, and talent

It is certain that the greatest poets, orators, statesmen, and historians, men of the most brilliant and imposing talents, have labored as hard, if not harder, than day laborers; and that the most obvious reason why they have been superior to other men is that they have taken more pains than other men.
