There is no use whatever trying to help people who do not help themselves. You cannot push anyone up a ladder unless he be willing to climb himself.
Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince
There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
There is nothing noble about being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
There is nothing permanent except change.
There is one rule for industrialists and that is: make the best quality goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.
There is only one way... to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it.
There is something that is much more scarce, something rarer than ability. It is the ability to recognize ability.
Paul Bear Bryant
There's no substitute for guts.
Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.
Those who wish to sing, always find a song.
