A Quote by Ralph W. Hardy on church, life, trade, and worth

One does not wait long in life to be greeted by the call, "New lamps for old . . . give up what you have for something with more glamour." This is particularly true for members of the Church, who have something of greater worth than Aladdin's lamp, genie and all. Ask to see the genie before you trade your old lamp!

A Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes on acceptance, competition, desires, good, ideas, power, thought, trade, and truth

The ultimate good desired is better reached by free trade in ideas [and] the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market.

Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809 - 1894)

A Quote by O. B. Smith on confidence, enthusiasm, jobs, and trade

Have confidence in your products and the house backing them, have enthusiasm for your job, call on your trade regularly and consistently, treat your trade courteously, and you will find that your customers will not have to be sold-they will be glad to buy.

A Quote by Norman Mailer on cities, losing, past, trade, and world

New York is one of the capitals of the world and Los Angeles is a constellation of plastic, San Francisco is a lady, Boston has become Urban Renewal, Philadelphia and Baltimore and Washington wink like dull diamonds in the smog of Eastern Megalopolis, and New Orleans is unremarkable past the French Quarter. Detroit is a one-trade town, Pittsburgh has lost its golden triangle, St. Louis has become the golden arch of the corporation, and nights in Kansas City close early. The oil depletion allowance makes Houston and Dallas naught but checkerboards for this sort of game. But Chicago is a great American city. Perhaps it is the last of the great American cities.

I say get an education. Become an electrician, a mechanic, a doctor, a lawyer - anything but a fighter. In this trade, it's the managers that make the money and last the longest.

A Quote by Martin Niemoeller on catholicism, communism, judaism, protestantism, time, and trade

In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.
