A Quote by Hideo Morita on fatherhood, generations, rules, trade, and understanding

My father's generation knew that they were playing by different rules from the West. When it came to trade, but they pretended they didn't understand the rules. That's why they won.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on thought and trade

Nay, be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you, opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought. Every man is the lord of a realm beside which the earthly empire of the Czar is but a petty state, a hummock left by the ice.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

A Quote by Henry D. Taylor on books, independence, knowledge, learning, men, proverbs, trade, tragedy, understanding, wisdom, women, and words

We have been counseled to "seek . . . out of the best books words of wisdom." It is pointed out in Proverbs, "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom." (Proverbs 4:7.) But in getting wisdom and getting knowledge, above all we should "get understanding." It is important to learn a profession, learn a trade. That applies not only to the young men, but it applies to you young women as well. You girls should place yourselves in a position to be self-supporting and independent in the event that tragedy or an emergency comes, for emergencies have come and will continue to come.

Henry D. Taylor (1903 - 1987)

A Quote by Bishop Fulton John Sheen on attitude, balance, god, politics, and trade

If we had intellectual vigour enough to ascend from effects to causes, we would explain political, economical and social phenomena less by credit sheets, balance of trade and reparations than by our attitude towards God.

A Quote by F. M. Crawford on business, education, effort, habits, labor, learning, poetry, superiority, and trade

It makes little difference what the trade, business, or branch of learning, in mechanical labor, or intellectual effort, the educated man is always superior to the common laborer. One who is in the habit of applying his powers in the right way will carry system into any occupation, and it will help him as much to handle a rope as to write a poem.

F. M. Crawford (1845 - 1909)

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on church, culture, learning, peace, schools, trade, war, and world

We merely want to live in peace with all the world, to trade with them, to commune with them, to learn from their culture as they may learn from ours, so that the products of our toil may be used for our schools and our roads and our churches and not for guns and planes and tanks and ships of war.

Dwight Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)

A Quote by Dean Alfrange on challenge, citizenship, dignity, dreams, existence, failure, freedom, fulfillment, life, opportunity, risk, security, success, trade, wishes, and world

It is my right to be uncommon . . . if I can; I seek opportunity . . . not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stole calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid; to think and act for myself; enjoy the benefits of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, 'This I have done, and this is what it means to be an American.'

A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on conscience, defense, destruction, education, freedom, heart, individuality, injustice, labor, laws, liberty, people, politics, struggle, trade, travel, and world

Actually, what is the political struggle that we witness? It is the instinctive struggle of all people toward liberty. And what is this liberty, whose very name makes the heart beat faster and shakes the world? Is it not the union of all liberties - liberty of conscience, of education, of association, of the press, of travel, of labor, of trade? In short, is not liberty the freedom of every person to make full use of his faculties, so long as he does not harm other persons while doing so? Is not liberty the destruction of all despotism-including, of course, legal despotism? Finally, is not liberty the restricting of the law only to its rational sphere of organizing the right of the individual to lawful self-defense; of punishing injustice?

Claude Bastiat (1801 - 1850)
