Business quotes by Injap Sia

nothing at all. #Quote by Agatha Christie

Business quotes by Monica Drake
#8. To read 'Happy Talk' is to crash a party as vivid and surreal as Felini's 8. It's the business of show business, the American dream, told by a chorus of Americans locked just outside of that dream, outside of the United States, relegated to expatriate status on the shores of Haiti. Melo paints a version of Haiti that's an interior landscape perhaps even more than an externalized place. This Haiti is a plan, a memory, a morphine-drip fueled dream out to bond its inhabitants forever. #Quote by Monica Drake
Business quotes by Ed Mayo
#9. We all need a story. It just turns out that the story we have been told for years - that people are naturally and primarily competitive and self-interested and that life is best shaped around that bleak fact - is bunkum #Quote by Ed Mayo
Business quotes by Giannina Braschi

#11. I am being stalked across the Web. And why is this happening? Pretty simple: It's huge business. #Quote by Gary Kovacs
Business quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#12. I don't know,' said Frodo. 'It came to me then, as if I was making it up; but I may have heard it long ago. Certainly it reminds me very much of Bilbo in the last years, before he went away. He used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. "It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to. Do you realize that this is the very path that goes through Mirkwood, and that if you let it, it might take you to the Lonely Mountain or even further and to worse places?" He used to say that on the path outside the front door at Bag End, especially after he had been out for a long walk. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Business quotes by Gary Vaynerchuk
#13. If people say you shouldn't pursue business around your passion they are haters. Don't believe them. #Quote by Gary Vaynerchuk

Business quotes by Rufus Wainwright
#15. I'm very blessed, mainly because even though my family is mostly in show business, it's really centered around music. My parents were very successful in many ways, but they weren't necessarily top of the charts. We were never wealthy because of music. We always had to work and we always had to struggle a little bit, and I think at the end of the day that's been very good for me, because I have a sense of it being very ephemeral. #Quote by Rufus Wainwright
Business quotes by Christian Siriano
#16. For me I'm a luxury brand trying to prove to people and the industry that it's not about being a TV celebrity in any which way, it's about being a designer and having a business and being successful at that. #Quote by Christian Siriano
Business quotes by Glenn Frank
#17. The advertising man is a liaison between the products of business and the mind of the nation. He must know both before he can serve either. #Quote by Glenn Frank
Business quotes by George Papandreou
#18. An elected government making huge changes with the consent of its people, is being undermined by concentrated powers in unregulated markets-powers which go beyond those of any individual government. #Quote by George Papandreou
Business quotes by Meister Eckhart
#19. The price of inaction is far greater than the cost of making a mistake. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Business quotes by Jay-Z
#20. I'm not a businessman, I'm a business, man! #Quote by Jay-Z

#23. We have a basic notion that unless we find a solution for environmental problems, we will not achieve sustainable growth in the coming years #Quote by Hiroyuki Watanabe
Business quotes by Danica McKellar
#24. The camera fails to capture the 'business' in show business! We typically will give 10 percent of our salary to the agent, 10 percent to the manager, and 5 percent to the lawyer, plus the publicist gets a flat fee, which needs to be budgeted for. #Quote by Danica McKellar
Business quotes by Byron Katie
#25. When you think that someone or something other than yourself needs to change, you're mentally out of your business. #Quote by Byron Katie
Business quotes by Julia Roberts
#26. Los Angeles is such a town of show business, and I'm a terrible celebrity. I find it difficult - it's the beast that must be fed. There's this big wheel of pictures and articles that goes around, and you get pinned on it. #Quote by Julia Roberts
Business quotes by Ernest Cline
#27. Any business that wanted to set up shop inside the OASIS had to rent or purchase virtual real estate (which Morrow dubbed "surreal estate") from GSS. Anticipating this, the company had set aside Sector One as the simulation's designated business zone and began to sell and rent millions of blocks of surreal estate there. City-sized shopping malls were erected in the blink of an eye, and storefronts spread across planets like time-lapse footage of mold devouring an orange. Urban development had never been so easy. #Quote by Ernest Cline
Business quotes by David Bowie
#28. I think much has been made of this alter ego business. I mean, I actually stopped creating characters in 1975 - for albums, anyway. #Quote by David Bowie
Business quotes by Tom Peters
#29. Who comes first? Don't be silly, says King Hal; it's employees. That is - and this dear Watson, is elementary - if you genuinely want to put customers first, you must put employees more first. #Quote by Tom Peters
Business quotes by Denis Leary
#30. My charity is in the business of helping firefighters in any way that we can. For instance, after 9/11 we were the second-fastest charity to raise and distribute money to the widows and surviving family members of the 343 firefighters who died that day. #Quote by Denis Leary
Business quotes by Carter Burwell
#31. I like business and personal life to be distinct. #Quote by Carter Burwell
Business quotes by Samuel Johnson
#32. To talk in public, to think in solitude, to read and to hear, to inquire and answer inquiries, is the business of the scholar #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Business quotes by Michael Milken
#33. Earlier in this century, philanthropy often flowed from the wills of dead industrialists. In recent decades, it's as likely to have come from a very alive business leader, entertainer, artist or sports star. The most effective of these patrons begin the process of giving by asking what they care about passionately. #Quote by Michael Milken
Business quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#34. We have to get out of this mindset that the rich will do the business and the poor will have the charity. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Business quotes by Bella Abzug
#35. I am not being facetious when I say that the real enemies in this country are the Pentagon and its pals in big business. #Quote by Bella Abzug

Business quotes by Francis Chan
#37. It ought to be the business of every day to prepare for our final day (attributed to Matthew Henry) #Quote by Francis Chan
Business quotes by Francois Fenelon
#38. There is practically nothing that men do not prefer to God. A tiresome detail of business, an occupation utterly pernicious to health, the employment of time in ways one does not dare to mention. Anything rather than God. #Quote by Francois Fenelon
Business quotes by Saul Alinsky
#39. Organized business has assumed that greater profits would be pretty much of a cure-all, and it has to a major extent ignored the fact that the welfare of business rests upon the welfare of the consumers of a nation; that business or free enterprise will function in a democracy only so long as the democracy functions. #Quote by Saul Alinsky
Business quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#40. If Thomas Jefferson thought taxation without representation was bad, he should see how it is with representation. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Business quotes by Susan Wojcicki
#41. There are unlimited opportunities for display advertising. In fact, we're in the process of massive change in the display industry - how it's bought, how it's sold, and how it's targeted. #Quote by Susan Wojcicki
Business quotes by Susan Glaspell
#42. I often think of the different ways Goethe and Darwin got at evolution. Goethe had the poetic conception of it all right; Darwin worked it out step by step. Who's ahead? And which has any business scoffing at the other? #Quote by Susan Glaspell
Business quotes by Gore Vidal
#43. Writing fiction has become a priestly business in countries that have lost their faith. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Business quotes by David Brier
#44. Who are we, and how do we relate this idea in a way that's meaningful to our customers and the values they hold dear?

In other words, one must define something meaningful. To do that, one must identify to whom this must be meaningful. #Quote by David Brier
Business quotes by Rex E. Lee
#45. I have no criticism of the basic concept of irrefutable authority. Properly employed, it is the easiest, the surest, and the proper way to resolve conflicts. There is an omnipresent temptation, however, to rely on such authority regardless of its applicability; and I know of no better examples than the scriptures and the Constitution.

We find it easy to lapse into the expansive notion that the Constitution, like the gospel, embraces all truth and that it protects and guarantees all that is right, equitable, and just. From that grand premise it is only a short and comfortable leap to the proposition that the Constitution embraces my particular notion of what is right, equitable, and just. The Constitution lends itself to this kind of use because of its breadth.

Issues such as foreign aid, fluoridation of water, public versus private education, progressive income tax, to which political party I should belong and which candidate I should support; questions about economic development and environmental quality control; questions about the power of labor unions and the influence of big business in government--all these are issues of great importance. But these questions cannot and ought not to be resolved by simply resorting to irrefutable authority. Neither the Constitution nor the scriptures contain answers to these questions, and under the grand plan of eternal progress it is our responsibility to develop our own skills by working out our own answers throug #Quote by Rex E. Lee
Business quotes by Paul Auster
#46. People look at the same passage, and one person will say this is the best thing he's ever read, and another person will say it's absolutely idiotic. I mean, there's no way to reconcile those two things. You just have to forget the whole business of what people are saying. #Quote by Paul Auster
Business quotes by Matt Taibbi
#47. In the new American ghetto, the nightmare engine is bubble economics, a kind of high-tech casino scam that kills neighborhoods just like dope does, only the product is credit, not crack or heroin. It concentrates the money of the population in just a few hands with brutal efficiency, just like narco-business, and just as in narco-business the product itself, debt, steadily demoralizes the customer to the point where he's unable to prevent himself from being continually dominated. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Business quotes by Jack Ma
#48. Rather than having small smart tricks to get by, focus on holding on and persevering. #Quote by Jack Ma
Business quotes by Luke Bryan
#49. My dad is very successful in his business. He's always been big in having hobbies and having little ways to get away. He always made time for hunting and fishing. He always encouraged me to do it. #Quote by Luke Bryan
Business quotes by Gunter Grass
#50. Lies that do not hurt, which are different from lies that protect oneself or hurt another person. That is not my business. But the truth is mostly very boring, and you can help it along with lies. There is no harm in that. #Quote by Gunter Grass
Business quotes by Brent Spiner
#51. I think it's the business part of the word show business that causes me the most concern. #Quote by Brent Spiner
Business quotes by
#52. Any women who say is not getting equally amount paid as men do, they don't work equal amount as man do. There are many women business owners who make more them men's do, if you are a women who think you are not getting paid equal amount, you are free to open your own business and make how much you want. #Quote by "Beta" Metani' Marashi
Business quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#53. My dog," he said, "just barks and plays -has all he wants to eat. He never works- has no trouble about business. In a little while he dies, and that is all. I work with all my strength. I have no time to play. I have trouble every day. In a little while I will die, and then I go to hell. I wish that I had been a dog. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Business quotes by Kate Millett
#54. As patriarchy enforces a temperamental imbalance of personality traits between the sexes, its educational institutions, segregated or co-educational, accept a cultural programing toward the generally operative division between "masculine" and "feminine" subject matter, assigning the humanities and certain social sciences (at least in their lower or marginal branches) to the female - and science and technology, the professions, business and engineering to the male. Of #Quote by Kate Millett
Business quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#55. York boss William Barnes issued an acid personal attack: "Mr. Roosevelt's departure for Chicago was inevitable. Undignified as it is, and impotent as it will prove to be, its chief interest lies in the disclosure of the mania for power over which Mr. Roosevelt has no control." The people of Chicago greeted the arrival of Theodore Roosevelt quite differently; word that Roosevelt was en route drove the city "plum crazy" with excitement. Ordinary business was suspended as tens of thousands made plans to celebrate Roosevelt's arrival. #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Business quotes by Donald Trump, Jr.
#56. I know when my father [Donald Trump] puts his mind to something he's going to do a phenomenal job with it. He's a great businessman. He has an incredible track record. And I know he understands what this country needs and what it wants. #Quote by Donald Trump, Jr.
Business quotes by Deirdre O'Kane

Business quotes by Nina Gordon
#59. It's magazines like HITS that have to label things. #Quote by Nina Gordon
Business quotes by Charlie Munger
#60. A lot of success in life and business comes from knowing what you want to avoid: early death, a bad marriage, etc. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Business quotes by Satya Nadella
#61. In our business, things look like a failure until they're not. It's pretty binary transitions. #Quote by Satya Nadella
Business quotes by Georges Doriot
#62. There is always a critical job to be done. There is a sales door to be opened, a credit line to be established, a new important employee to be found, or a business technique to be learned. The venture investor must always be on call to advise, to persuade, to dissuade, to encourage, but always to help build. Then venture capital becomes true creative capital - creating growth for the company and financial success for the investing organization #Quote by Georges Doriot
Business quotes by Mark Pellegrino
#63. For me, teaching helps to reaffirm the right principles and values of acting. It helps me focus on the good stuff that can be easy to lose sight of because the business is so result-oriented. #Quote by Mark Pellegrino
Business quotes by Mary Roach
#64. Constipation ran Presley's life. Even his famous motto TCB -  'Taking Care of Business' -  sounds like a reference to bathroom matters. #Quote by Mary Roach
Business quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding
#65. The tourist business is a trap, it is a tained honey; Man clearly should have stayed in bed, and not invented money. #Quote by Kenneth E. Boulding
Business quotes by Joe Mansueto
#66. In school, you get a limited view of the world. Start working. Find your passion. Take your time doing that. Once you've found what you're passionate about, then lock down. Even if you want to start a business, it's helpful to work, see how other businesses are run. #Quote by Joe Mansueto
Business quotes by Loretta Lynn
#67. You can't be halfway in this business. If you don't meet the fans, you lose all you've got. #Quote by Loretta Lynn
Business quotes by Samuel Goldwyn
#68. The independents who were our fiercest competitors all succumbed to the one-hit-makes-you-a-genius philosophy. It is a mistake to think you have the magic touch. Show business is roulette. If you start to play for stakes you can't afford, there's no way you can survive. #Quote by Samuel Goldwyn
Business quotes by Ross Perot, Jr.
#69. While we share the same set of values, we can - and do - have different business interests. Dad has been there to give me career advice along the way, but he has always let me call the play. #Quote by Ross Perot, Jr.
Business quotes by Thomas Wolfe
#70. Day by day, a throning traffic of life and business passed before him in the streets; day by day, the great vans came, the drivers, handlers, and packers swarmed before his eyes, filling the air with their oaths and cries, irritably intent upon their labor; but the man in the window never looked at them, never seemed to be aware of their existence- he just sat there and looked out, his eyes fixed in an abstracted stare.
--------
That man's face became for him the face of Darkness and of Time. It never spoke, and yet it had a voice- a voice that never seemed to have the whole earth in it. It was the voice of evening and of night, and in it were the blended tongues of all those men who have passed through the heat and fury of the day, and who now lean quietly upon the sills of evening. In it was the whole vast hush and weariness that comes upon the city ay the hour of dusk, when the chaos of another day is ended, and when everything- streets, buildings and eight million people- breathe slowly, with a tired and sorrowful joy. And in that single toungless voice was the knowledge of all their tongues. #Quote by Thomas Wolfe
Business quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#71. What a sad business is being funny! #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Business quotes by Jessica Biel
#72. For a very long time, I wasn't thought of as anyone with any credibility in the film world. Everybody is tramping through the swamp every day in this business. 'I'm worth it, I'm credible - believe me, give me a shot!' That's the way I feel on a consistent basis. #Quote by Jessica Biel
Business quotes by Lee DeBourg
#73. Dad told me he had been young once, and it is okay to have my fun.He said when I'm ready to settle down, I need to select a guy who will be good for the family business."
"Have you had your fun?"
"What has that witch Michelle told you? #Quote by Lee DeBourg
Business quotes by Sonny Perdue
#74. In the business world, lower profits reflect less demand for your product. But in government the opposite is true - demand for our services increases in hard times. #Quote by Sonny Perdue
Business quotes by Jerry Falwell
#75. I am convinced that America can be turned around if we will all get serious about the Master's business. It may be late, but it is never too late to do what is right. We need an old-fashioned, God-honoring, Christ-exalting revival to turn American back to God. America can be saved! #Quote by Jerry Falwell
Business quotes by Arthur Miller
#76. By whatever means it is accomplished, the prime business of a play is to arouse the passions of its audience so that by the route of passion may be opened up new relationships between a man and men, and between men and Man. Drama is akin to the other inventions of man in that it ought to help us to know more, and not merely to spend our feelings. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Business quotes by Loren Weisman
#77. The most devastating thing artists can do to their career is get in their own way, and way too many people do. It's not the labels, the industry, the fans, the cities, the economy, the social media, the marketing, the promoting, the 'right time,' the music, or whatever other excuse you can come up with that determines whether you succeed or you fail. It is you, no one else, #Quote by Loren Weisman
Business quotes by Aubrey Menen
#78. The poor have no business with culture and should beware of it. They cannot eat it; they cannot sell it; they can only pass it on to others and that is why the world is full of hungry people ready to teach us anything under the sun. #Quote by Aubrey Menen
Business quotes by John Treasure
#79. Advertising and the free society are closely connected. Advertising helps to make a free society remain so by increasing competition, and by helping to maintain the freedom of the mass media themselves. The free society is one where advertising and advertising agencies are likely to be in considerable demand, though it is true that even in a totally centralist society there would still be a need for organisations and people to have access to mass communication media. #Quote by John Treasure
Business quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#80. Today the tyrant rules not by club or fist, but disguised as a market researcher, he shepherds his flocks in the ways of utility and comfort. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Business quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#81. Whatever you do, in the privacy of your own rain shower, is your own business #Quote by Gregory David Roberts
Business quotes by Henry Ford
#82. I do not believe a man can ever leave his business. He ought to think of it by day and dream of it by night. #Quote by Henry Ford
Business quotes by William P. Young
#83. City and country
each has its own beauty and its own pain. Some of the smallness of small towns
cattiness, everybody knowing everybody's business
that can be challenging. And cities can be challenging, because no one can connect except electronically. #Quote by William P. Young
Business quotes by Victor Pinchuk
#84. Ukrainian business must really embrace global competition. We need to understand that competition for resources and clients is not with competitors from across the street or from another city, but with millions of businesses around the world. #Quote by Victor Pinchuk
Business quotes by Mike Rowe
#85. Some jobs pay better, some jobs smell better, and some jobs have no business being treated like careers. But work is never the enemy, regardless of the wage. Because somewhere between the job and the paycheck, there's still a thing called opportunity, and that's what people need to pursue. #Quote by Mike Rowe
Business quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#86. It is very difficult to reconcile the American ideal of a sovereign people capable of owning and managing their own government with an inability to own and manage their own business. #Quote by Calvin Coolidge
Business quotes by Ken Goldstein
#87. Pain has an odd way of expressing itself in the acts of business. No matter how many setbacks a leader might experience, there always seems to be a new opaque watermark of endurance testing, invisibly triggered for erratic combustion in each compounding decision. Every CEO in the world knows this, yet few have the good sense to walk away from the table when their cards are hot. Why win in Act Two when a comeback in Act Three gives you a longer biography? Ego is not so much about immortality as it is about demonstrating stately resistance to nightmarish attacks in public forums. Any good smack to the head is a continuity wake up call, or at least another invitation to be interviewed by Charlie Rose. #Quote by Ken Goldstein
Business quotes by Colin MacLaughlin
#88. But I couldn't comprehend this making friends business. My friends had always made me. #Quote by Colin MacLaughlin
Business quotes by Terry Zwigoff
#89. I collect old Coon Chicken Inn memorabilia. I collect black memorabilia, like old minstrel posters. It was a real place. There was one in Seattle, one in Portland, and one in Salt Lake City. They started in 1925, and then they went out of business around 1958. #Quote by Terry Zwigoff
Business quotes by Sidney Sheinberg
#90. I have the highest respect for stars and auteur directors. But I don't want to work with people who only invite me to the preview. We want to be in the collaborative movie business, not the financing one. #Quote by Sidney Sheinberg
Business quotes by Roald Dahl
#91. Don't worry,' he said. 'So long as the facts are there, I can write the story. But please,' he added, 'let me have plenty of detail. That's what counts in our business, tiny little details, like you had a broken shoelace on your left shoe, or a fly settled on the rim of your glasses at lunch, or the man you were talking to had a broken front tooth ... #Quote by Roald Dahl
Business quotes by Stephen Ambrose
#92. Friendships are different from all other relationships. Unlike acquaintanceship, friendship is based on love. Unlike lovers and married couples, it is free of jealousy. Unlike children and parents, it knows neither criticism nor resentment. Friendship has no status in law. Business partnerships are based on a contract. So is marriage. Parents are bound by law. But friendships are freely entered into, freely given, and freely exercised ... #Quote by Stephen Ambrose
Business quotes by Peter Drucker
#93. Some of the best business and nonprofit CEOs I've worked with over a sixty-five-year consulting career were not stereotypical leaders. They were all over the map in terms of their personalities, attitudes, values, strengths, and weaknesses. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Business quotes by Jay Leno
#94. Politics is just show business for ugly people. #Quote by Jay Leno
Business quotes by Roger Morris
#95. Growing up in the Midwest, I was very close to my maternal grandmother, who, as a young widow running a small business in 1920s Kansas City, had known firsthand the old Pendergast regime and its classic combine of politics and organized crime. #Quote by Roger Morris
Business quotes by William Bernbach
#96. Research can trap you into the past. #Quote by William Bernbach
Business quotes by Gregg Allman
#97. In my line of business, there's no better feeling than having a real nice work that you're really satisfied with. #Quote by Gregg Allman
Business quotes by A. N. Wilson
#98. The death of any man aged 56 is very sad for his widow and family. And no one would deny that Steve Jobs was a brilliant and highly innovative technician, with great business flair and marketing ability. #Quote by A. N. Wilson
Business quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#99. They looted your public and corporate treasuries, and turned your industries over to nincompoops," he said. "Then they had your Government borrow so heavily from us that we had no choice but to send over an Army of Occupation in business suits. Never before has the Ruling Class of a country found a way to stick other countries with all the responsibilities their wealth might imply, and still remain rich beyond the dreams of avarice! No wonder they thought the comatose Ronald Reagan was a great President! #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Business quotes by Gwendolyn Brooks
#100. We are each other's harvest; we are each other's business; we are each other's magnitude and bond. #Quote by Gwendolyn Brooks
Business quotes by Niklas Zennstrom
#101. When a business becomes successful seemingly overnight, no one knows about all the months and years you've invested, all the projects you've tried before that didn't work. #Quote by Niklas Zennstrom
Business quotes by Amit Abraham
#102. I fail to understand why people are so bothered about the life of others when their very own life needs to be attended to by them. #Quote by Amit Abraham
Business quotes by Shauna Niequist
#103. Marriage isn't a business, co-owned and managed. It's a love story. The most important things we can give our marriage are time and romance, kissing and laughing. Laundry can wait, but a love story needs to be written a little bit every day. WHEN #Quote by Shauna Niequist
Business quotes by Stephanie Mills
#104. I'm 47 years old. I couldn't compete with Beyonce. I'm not competing with anyone. I've already established myself as an artist. I've been in this business for 30 years. There's no reason for me to compete with anyone. #Quote by Stephanie Mills
Business quotes by David Harvey
#105. The management of the New York fiscal crisis pioneered the way for neoliberal practices both domestically under Reagan and internationally through the IMF (international monetary fund) in the 1980s. It established the principle that in the event of a conflict between the integrity of financial institutions , on one hand , and the well-being of the citizens on the other, the former was to be privileged .it emphasized that the role of the government was to create a good business climate rather than look to the needs and well-being of the popualtion at large. #Quote by David Harvey
Business quotes by Sarah Wright
#106. Everyone also needs to realize that business is not rocket science. Everything that you haven't done before, you don't know it because you haven't done it before. It's not brain surgery and you figure it out as you do it. #Quote by Sarah Wright
Business quotes by Erin Duffy
#107. It seemed glamorous when I used to go into work and get to be on a trading floor or see how the business worked a little bit before I ever understood what it was. #Quote by Erin Duffy
Business quotes by Frank Zappa
#108. Basically I'm in the idea business
whether it's a musical idea or a spoken idea ... If you wind up with a political system that wants to put idea men out of business, then you have worry on your hands. #Quote by Frank Zappa
Business quotes by Martin Landry

Business quotes by Lee Ellis
#111. Leaders can choose to grow and change, but generally the most powerful predictor of future performance is past behavior. Evaluate them realistically. #Quote by Lee Ellis
Business quotes by Gerry Harvey
#112. Basically we get confused a bit about what retail is. It is really just buying things, putting them on a floor and selling them. #Quote by Gerry Harvey
Business quotes by Dan Bejar
#113. I was born in 1972, which means that in "rock" terms I have no business addressing "the kids" unless it's to shoo them out of my garden. #Quote by Dan Bejar
Business quotes by James Cash Penney
#114. The keystone of successful business is cooperation. Friction retards progress. #Quote by James Cash Penney
Business quotes by Julia Louis-Dreyfus
#115. Doing actual comedic material is just about the most joyful endeavor ever. That's the truth. The only time it's not funny is when business gets in the way. #Quote by Julia Louis-Dreyfus

#118. I consider each business investment based on concept and revenue. #Quote by Daymond John
Business quotes by Martin Amis
#119. I looked at it out there. The figures that held my attention, as always (I too had an office at Buna, and spent many hours in front of its window), the figures that held my attention were not the men in stripes, as they queued or scurried in lines or entangled one another in a kind of centipedal scrum, moving at an unnatural speed, like extras in a silent film, moving faster than their strength or build could bear, as if in obedience to a frantic crank swivelled by a furious hand; the figures that held my attention were not the Kapos who screamed at the prisoners, nor the SS noncoms who screamed at the Kapos, nor the overalled company foremen who screamed at the SS noncoms. No. What held my eye were the figures in city business suits, designers, engineers, administrators from IG Farben plants in Frankfurt, Leverkusen, Ludwigshafen, with leather-bound notebooks and retractable yellow measuring tapes, daintily picking their way past the bodies of the wounded, the unconscious, and the dead. #Quote by Martin Amis
Business quotes by Shailender Singh
#120. I believe in giving everything my best shot. I do not believe in holding back. I am very driven by the fact that we are destined with these opportunities. #Quote by Shailender Singh
Business quotes by Stacey Kehoe
#121. Great marketers see potential customers as real people. They create campaigns that appeal to their, wants, needs and desires. #Quote by Stacey Kehoe
Business quotes by Willie Geist
#122. I guess it turns out choosing your life partner from a group of men trying to get their break in show business by sitting around shirtless in a swimming pool while cameras watch around the clock isn't the path to a soulmate after all. #Quote by Willie Geist
Business quotes by Eric Thomas
#123. We live in a society that says "You Gotta get yours" and I'm not suggesting that you don't handle your business but I want to show people ... Gandhi gave, Mother Theresa gave, Martin Luther King gave, Rosa Parks gave, Sojourner Truth gave, and these people had a rich life! They may have not had a Rolls Royce, Range Rover, or lived in the best neighborhoods but they changed history forever and they changed lives forever and that's what I aim to do. #Quote by Eric Thomas
Business quotes by Max H. Bazerman
#124. Consider the recent financial crisis and its link to faulty reward systems. President Bill Clinton's objective of increasing homeownership by rewarding potential home buyers and lenders is one example. The Clinton administration "went to ridiculous lengths" to increase homeownership in the United State, promoting "paper-thin down payments" and pushing lenders to give mortgage loans to unqualified buyers according to Business Week editor Peter Coy. #Quote by Max H. Bazerman
Business quotes by Jennifer Stone
#125. We do what we can. The results are none of our business. #Quote by Jennifer Stone
Business quotes by Mark Heard
#126. But the music business is no more about truth on the outside of the Christian ghetto than it is on the inside. #Quote by Mark Heard
Business quotes by Peter Senge
#127. A well-managed business will have a high return on invested capital. But that's a consequence. It's not a way to manage a business. #Quote by Peter Senge
Business quotes by Marianne Williamson
#128. Imagine how differently American business would function were our faith in the power of goodness to replace our faith in the power of money. Huge industries would no longer make billions of dollars on activities that diminish the well-being and safety of our children, our health, and our environment, on the pretext that it's "just business." To put money before goodness is idolatry, and the laws of the universe ensure that in the end all idols will fall. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Business quotes by Orrin Woodward
#129. The first business asset you should invest in is yourself. #Quote by Orrin Woodward
Business quotes by Sherilyn Fenn
#130. I'd moved to L.A. with my mother when I was 17 or 18. She loved show business and I was young enough that I had no idea what I wanted to do. #Quote by Sherilyn Fenn
Business quotes by Jeffery Russell
#131. Cheese, where you takes liquid from a cow lady's business parts, mix it with a bit o' juices from a baby cow's fourth stomach and then let it grow all fuzzy-moldy for a few years, eh? #Quote by Jeffery Russell
Business quotes by Doris Lessing
#132. Arthur Deikman's prime and particular contribution, apart from drawing attention to the problem, was to point out how much cultish behaviour goes on unrecognised, in, for instance, business life or in apparently harmless organisations, religious or philanthropic. It is useful to ask oneself the question: do I feel superior because I belong to - whatever it is? Do I look down on people outside? Perhaps the most easily seen feature of a cult s that: WE are better than THEM. It is salutary to recognise how often in a day we feel disapproval or superiority, matching ourselves with 'outsiders' ... #Quote by Doris Lessing
Business quotes by Maria Bamford
#133. My dad actually had business cards made up with my sister's website and my website and all of our information. And he hands them out to people he meets. #Quote by Maria Bamford
Business quotes by Mignon' Talise Padilla
#134. As long as you feel comfortable losing, you will never win! #Quote by Mignon' Talise Padilla
Business quotes by Edmund Burke
#135. I have never yet seen any plan which has not been mended by the observations of those who were much inferior in understanding to the person who took the lead in the business. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Business quotes by Ian MacKaye
#136. Major labels didn't start showing up really until they smelled money, and that's all they're ever going to be attracted to is money-that's the business they're in- making money. #Quote by Ian MacKaye
Business quotes by Tina Yothers
#137. With a lot of kids in the business, the parents get as twisted as they do, and there's a lot of opportunities to go their own way, but anyone has that opportunity. #Quote by Tina Yothers
Business quotes by Andrew Bloomfield
#138. If you are starting a business, or want to ask for a raise, or want to pursue a new career, you can have a Vedic astrologer determine the best time for such actions (muhurtha). You can also receive the best possible date to incorporate or establish a business. I have seen numerous occasions where struggling businesspeople have dissolved a company that was begun at an inauspicious time, and re-established their business with a Vedic astrologer's help on a much better date, with good results. In fact, the results can be remarkable. #Quote by Andrew Bloomfield
Business quotes by Adam Gopnik
#139. This can shake you up, this business of things almost but not quite being the same. A pharmacy is not quite a drugstore; a brasserie is not quite a coffee shop; a lunch is not quite a lunch. #Quote by Adam Gopnik
Business quotes by Saira Viola
#140. In the world of Big Macks Starbucks coffee and oversized SUVS it was business as usual snort and go #Quote by Saira Viola
Business quotes by Fabrice Grinda
#141. Learn computer science. It's extraordinarily helpful. I like recommending learning economics as well so they think in terms of business, they have rational frameworks for looking at the world, but yeah, computer science is an amazing way to get into, even if you want to be CEO, having a tech background is helpful. #Quote by Fabrice Grinda
Business quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#142. It is an axiom in my mind, that our liberty can never be safe but in the hands of the people themselves, and that too of the people with a certain degree of instruction. This it is the business of the State to effect, and on a general plan. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Business quotes by Alice Foote MacDougall
#143. That is the wearisome part of business - there is no peace, no sense of certain, permanent achievement, no stability. The unexpected, and usually the awful, is forever happening. #Quote by Alice Foote MacDougall
Business quotes by Warren Farrell
#144. If women really earned fifty-nine cents to the dollar for the same work as men, what business could compete effectively by hiring men at any level? #Quote by Warren Farrell
Business quotes by Richard Branson
#145. Find somebody else to run your business on a day-to-day basis. #Quote by Richard Branson
Business quotes by Jerry Yang
#146. I have a business to run and stockholders to think about. #Quote by Jerry Yang
Business quotes by Warren Bennis
#147. Learning in a face-to-face human community, as humans have evolved to do over hundreds of thousands of years, may always be the ideal - especially in an endeavor that is as relationship-driven as business. #Quote by Warren Bennis
Business quotes by Nicholas D'Agosto
#148. The business can be frustrating. For me, Omaha is a rounding foundation. I was raised in a very faith-filled household, very hardworking. It made me aware of what privilege is. And it's a place I can go back to, spend time with nieces and nephews, celebrate the things that have nothing to do with the hubbub of Hollywood. #Quote by Nicholas D'Agosto
Business quotes by Patrick Collison
#149. It's very possible that advertising business models will simply never do as well on mobile devices as those oriented around transactions. #Quote by Patrick Collison
Business quotes by Isaac Newton
#150. I do not love to be printed on every occasion, much less to be dunned and teased by foreigners about mathematical things or to be thought by our own people to be trifling away my time about them when I should be about the king's business. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Business quotes by Harry Leslie Smith
#151. In November, when our nation remembers her fallen soldiers and honours the lost youth of my generation, the Prime Minister, government leaders and the hollow men of business affix paper poppies to their lapels and afford the dead of war two minutes' silence. Afterwards, they speak golden platitudes about the struggle and the heroism of that time. Yet the words they speak are meaningless because they have surrendered the values my generation built after the horrors of the Second World War. #Quote by Harry Leslie Smith
Business quotes by James Surowiecki
#152. In the business world, bad news is usually good news - for somebody else. #Quote by James Surowiecki
Business quotes by Mark McCormack
#153. In our business, the windows of opportunity open and close with dazzling rapidity ... I constantly have to remind people to seize the moment. #Quote by Mark McCormack
Business quotes by Steve Guttenberg
#154. I'm lucky to be in this business. I'm very grateful. #Quote by Steve Guttenberg
Business quotes by Fred Wilson
#155. When there were not very many Internet companies, the supply of Internet companies to the market was small and the appetite for them was large. Therefore, if you were in the business of creating Internet companies in 1996-98, you had a market that provided massive demand for that. #Quote by Fred Wilson
Business quotes by John Legend
#156. Music business is not for everyone. But if you have it in you, you have that passion, if you have that energy in you that you really want to make something creative and make something that's going to impact the world, then go for it, do it and don't let anybody tell you no. #Quote by John Legend
Business quotes by Sheila Jeffreys
#157. Men's sexual freedom has depended, and still does to a large extent, upon their ownership of women's bodies. Men have bought, sold and traded women as things to be used. Women are still regularly raped in marriage, even though most Western countries have now changed their laws to recognize that wives have a right not to be raped. Women are still bought and sold in marriage in many countries, and in the vast majority of countries of the world their bodies are still legally owned by their husbands. In prostitution and pornography, the mail-order bride business and reproductive surrogacy, the international trade in women is a burgeoning industry. Men's ownership of women's bodies has been the substrate on which their idea of sexual freedom was born and given its meaning. This is why it includes the right to buy access to women, men, and children as an important way of demonstrating that freedom. At the base of men's sexual freedom agenda is the concept of the rights of the male individual. Pateman points out that women cannot gain recognition as individuals, since the very concept of the 'individual' is male. #Quote by Sheila Jeffreys
Business quotes by Al Madrigal
#158. People see me on the 'Daily Show' or 'About a Boy'. But the reality is that I only got into this business to do standup comedy. #Quote by Al Madrigal
Business quotes by Yves Behar
#159. The best design work is really done when you spend more time with people, when you have the opportunity to be of the same mindset and the same incentives as the founder of the business. #Quote by Yves Behar
Business quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#160. People make the mistake of thinking that experiencing an emotion means you have to do something about it. In fact, you don't have to do anything with your emotions at all. You can simply acknowledge them as they arrive – oh, look, that old bitch Envy is back again – then go about your business.
It's the clinging to emotion that causes suffering … A wiser choice is to let it go and breathe. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Business quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#161. No matter how old or how sick you are, how much or little you have done, your business in life not only isn't finished, but hasn't yet received its final, decisive meaning until your very last breath. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Business quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#162. Men's best successes come after their disappointments. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Business quotes by Felice Stevens
#163. Man or woman, what did it matter who he slept with, and why did people think it was any of their business? #Quote by Felice Stevens
Business quotes by Mike Cosper
#164. All human creativity is an echo of God's creativity. When God makes man, he forms him in the dirt, breathes life into him, and sends him out in the world. We've been playing in the dirt ever since. Just as God took something he'd made, shaped it, breathed life and meaning into it, and transformed it into something new, so we set about our own business, taking creation, shaping it, and giving it new meaning and purpose. Clay becomes sculpture. Trees become houses. Sounds are arranged in time to become music. Oils, pigments, and canvas are arranged to become paintings. Various metals, glass, and petroleum products become iPhones. The same is true of stories. There is nothing new under the sun, and our stories - no matter how fresh and new they might feel - are all a way of "playing in the dirt," wrestling with creation, reimagining it, working with it, and making it new. Our stories have a way of fitting into the bigger story of redemption that overshadows all of life and all of history. Because that bigger story is the dirt box in which all the other stories play. #Quote by Mike Cosper
Business quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#165. This is about sending a very strong message that Scotland does want to stay in the European Union and we're an open country, a good place to live, work, study and to do business and it's really important as we take forward what will be challenging work ahead of us, that we send those messages. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Business quotes by Martin Luther
#166. If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer. #Quote by Martin Luther
Business quotes by Bono
#167. Peace is the opposite of dreaming. It's built slowly and surely through brutal compromises and tiny victories that you don't even see. It's a messy business, bringing peace into the world. #Quote by Bono
Business quotes by Chris Hardwick
#168. I've always had a fondness for that satirical, Terry Gilliam - esque evil corporate megastructure, the kind of business that hangs banners that say making your life better as it throws kittens into the gears. #Quote by Chris Hardwick
Business quotes by Maxim Behar
#169. The people who have been known as PR experts - and still go by that title - have now turned into a combina- tion of publishers, reporters, and editors.
We are publishers because we own media. We control the social media profiles and pages of our clients. We have their blogs and their websites.
We are reporters because we have to fill up all those media chan- nels with relevant content.
We are editors because that content has got to be created, designed, arranged, structured, and presented in the best way pos- sible so that it can be convincing, attention-grabbing, and - most important - efficient. #Quote by Maxim Behar
Business quotes by Richard Baxter
#170. Our very business is to teach the great lesson of self-denial and humility to our people, and how unfit is it then that we should be proud ourselves! #Quote by Richard Baxter
Business quotes by Robert Breault
#171. While I find that I can keep my nose out of other people's business, I do have a curiosity as to their non-business activities. #Quote by Robert Breault
Business quotes by Barbara Abercrombie
#172. Writing can be a lonely business. But gradually your characters, or the scenes and peopl from your past, begin to rise up around you, and you find yourself writing your way out of loneliness, writing into your own company. #Quote by Barbara Abercrombie
Business quotes by Eric Schmidt
#173. When things are running perfectly smoothly, with people and boxes on charts enjoying a one-to-one relationship, then the processes and infrastructure have caught up to the business. #Quote by Eric Schmidt
Business quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#174. When President Obama speaks about raising taxes on the rich, he speaks about high-income employees and small business owners, not entrepreneurs who build big businesses. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Business quotes by Johnny Carson
#175. Entertainment is like any other major industry; it's cold, big business. The business end wants to know one thing: Can you do the job? If you can, you're in, you're made; if you can't, you're out. #Quote by Johnny Carson
Business quotes by Alex Spanos
#176. All my kids have worked in the family business. I've been successful at that. My family knows how to work. We all started working very young. #Quote by Alex Spanos
Business quotes by Charlie Munger
#177. You must value the business in order to value the stock. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Business quotes by Lynn Raye Harris
#178. You wouldn't be asking me that if I was a man," she said. "And frankly, it's none of your fucking business."
Mendez nodded, once and firmly. "If you work for me, it is my business. And yeah, I would ask a man. You'd be surprised how many of these guys can't keep it in their pants." He shook his head as if pained and Nick nearly laughed. #Quote by Lynn Raye Harris
Business quotes by LaDainian Tomlinson
#179. I believe a lot of players that start to think about money - 'Oh my goodness; I'm up for a new contract' - they don't have a great season because they're thinking about all these different things. Do your business on the field, and everything takes care of itself. #Quote by LaDainian Tomlinson
Business quotes by Marc Maron
#180. I know that the podcast is typically something I can do forever, because it's mine; it's just me and my producer and business partner, so it's our business. #Quote by Marc Maron
Business quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#181. In addition, if a person makes the error of identifying self with his work (rather than with the internal virtues that make the work possible), if self-esteem is tied primarily to accomplishments, success, income, or being a good family provider, the danger is that economic circumstances beyond the individual's control may lead to the failure of the business or the loss of a job, flinging him into depression or acute demoralization. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Business quotes by Azim Premji
#182. I was 21 and had spent the last few years in Stanford University Engineering School at California. Many people advised me to take up a nice, cushy job rather than face the challenges of running a hydrogenated oil business. Looking back, I am glad I decided to take charge instead. Essentially leadership begins from within. It is a small voice that tells you where to go when you feel lost. If you believe in that voice, you believe in yourself. #Quote by Azim Premji
Business quotes by Charles Dickens
#183. Mr. Gradgrind, apprised of his wife's decease, made an expedition from London, and buried her in a business-like manner. He then returned with promptitude to the national cinder-heap, and resumed his sifting for the odds and ends he wanted, and his throwing of the dust about into they eyes of other people who wanted other odds and ends - in fact, he resumed his parliamentary duties. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Business quotes by Ben Folds
#184. I'm definitely an anomaly, but I'm making things. They're selling, say, martinis, and I'm kind of making vintage Riesling. People aren't going to sit there very often, not your average public, and your average music-business monster is not going to take the time to notice the overtones and the undertones inside the flavor. They'd rather just have the martini. #Quote by Ben Folds
Business quotes by Phoebe Cates
#185. People follow proven formulas in any business. #Quote by Phoebe Cates
Business quotes by Baba Kalyani
#186. Fundamentally, we have broken our aerospace business into three parts - large parts which go into the wings and fuselage, components for jet engines, and specialised structural components for landing gear. #Quote by Baba Kalyani
Business quotes by Courtney Love
#187. When you're feeling overwhelmed in business, one smart idea can beat the biggest Super Bowl ad. #Quote by Courtney Love
Business quotes by Jaron Lanier
#188. One might ask why big business data is still so often used on faith, even after it has failed spectacularly. The answer is of course that big business data happens to facilitate superquick and vast near-term accumulations of wealth and influence. #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Business quotes by Alexander Nderitu
#189. "Exciting" is a dull world to describe the wrestling business. #Quote by Alexander Nderitu
Business quotes by Jack London
#190. I was not made for the desk and counting-house, for petty business squabbling, and legal jangling. #Quote by Jack London
Business quotes by Shepard Fairey
#191. I think the biggest thing that people fear when it comes to art becoming a business is those authentic, pure aspirations of art being compromised. #Quote by Shepard Fairey
Business quotes by Ozzy Osbourne
#192. In those days, if you wanted a new car or a holiday, you'd phone up the office and they'd send you some cash. You never had a bank account. I don't know anyone from the music business in the Seventies that it didn't happen to. #Quote by Ozzy Osbourne
Business quotes by James Hillman
#193. Because every exchange is always a relationship, to get the most while giving the least is unjust, unethical, antisocial, abusive, perhaps 'evil.' Yet predatory commerce ("the free market" as it is euphemistically called) operates regularly on the principle of 'get the most and pay the least. #Quote by James Hillman
Business quotes by Ehab Atalla
#194. Motivation is not just part of business - it's everything in business. #Quote by Ehab Atalla
Business quotes by Sophia Amoruso
#195. Don't ever let the Man get you. #Quote by Sophia Amoruso
Business quotes by Julianna Margulies
#196. It's one thing in this business to actually work. 5 percent of the Screen Actors' Guild works. It's another thing to do work that's satisfying and that people are loving. #Quote by Julianna Margulies
Business quotes by VIRGIL PROFEANU
#197. True will is wishing backed by power. #Quote by VIRGIL PROFEANU
Business quotes by Matt Keener
#198. A major reason many Americans still struggle to find meaningful work is because they are using tactics from the 1990s and early 2000s. The future for employment is now here...and it's online."
~February 21, 2013 as featured by CBS Money Watch #Quote by Matt Keener
Business quotes by Michael Porter
#199. I think that, too many times, business has been seen as acting in its narrow self-interest rather than, essentially, contributing more broadly to society. I think a lot of that is unintentional; I don't think that many managers are deliberately trying to be unethical or are not trying to be sensitive to social needs. #Quote by Michael Porter
Business quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#200. You get rich because you do things most people will not do. Success requires sacrifice. You must be willing to make those sacrifices. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
