A Quote by Warren Buffett on value and business

The speed at which a business success is recognized, furthermore, is not that important as long as the company's intrinsic value is increasing at a satisfactory rate. In fact, delayed recognition can be an advantage: It may give us the chance to buy more of a good thing at a bargain price.

Warren Buffett (1930 -)

A Quote by William Faulkner on value, measure, understanding, and perserverance

It wasn't until the Nobel Prize that they really thawed out. They couldn't understand my books, but they could understand $30,000.

A Quote by Rasa on secret, love, value, colors, and seeing

Words of love are of little value for it is the sound of love which contains the values of love; as it is the colors which form the value of seeing love.

A Quote by Rasa on secret, god, value, share, and self-evident

Only God provides. I shall never provide anything of true value to you...but I will share what value I am. For by knowing my value, your value shall become self-evident.

A Quote by Robert M. Pirsig on change, quality, value, and values

I think that if we are going to reform the world, and make it a better place to live in, the way to do it is not to talk about relationships of political nature, which are inevitably dualistic, full of subjects and objects and their relationship to one another; or with programs full of things for other people to do. I think that kind of approach starts it at the end and presumes the end is the beginning. Programs of a political nature are important end products of social quality that can be effective only if the underlying structure of social values is right. The social values are right only if the individual values are right. The place to improve the world is first in one's own heart and head and hands, and then to work outward from there. Other people can talk about how to expand the destiny of mankind. I just want to talk about how to fix a motorcycle. I think that what i have to say has more lasting value.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on education, exchange, value, shared knowledge, teacher, student, and growth

A teacher who establishes rapport with the taught, becomes one with them, learns more from them than he teaches them. He who learns nothing from his disciples is, in my opinion, worthless. Whenever I talk with someone I learn from him. I take from him more than I give him. In this way, a true teacher regards himself as a student of his students. If you will teach your pupils with this attitude, you will benefit much from them.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

A Quote by Fred Rogers on superimpose, encourage, value, and acceptance

It would have been sad for me to spend my life just trying to superimpose stuff on people rather than trying to encourage them to look within themselves for what's of value.

"Realize that you earn income by providing value — not time – so find a way to provide your best value to others, and charge a fair price for it."
