Owners quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#1. If the firms that employ an increasing majority of the population are driven solely to satisfy the owner's greed at the expense of working conditions, of the stability of the community, and of the health of the environment, chances are that the quality of our lives will be worse than it is now. #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Owners quotes by Daniel Webster

Owners quotes by
#5. Any women who say is not getting equally amount paid as men do, they don't work equal amount as man do.

Owners quotes by A.M. Homes
#6. Books tell you more about their owners than the owners do. #Quote by A.M. Homes
Owners quotes by Henry Wiencek
#7. Many writers on slavery today have emphasized the "agency" of the enslaved people, insisting that we pay heed to the efforts of the slaves to resist their condition and assert their humanity under a dehumanizing system. But as slaves gain "agency" in historical analyses, the masters seem to lose it. As the slaves become heroic figures, triumphing over their condition, slave owners recede as historical actors and are replaced by a faceless system of "context" and "forces." So we end up with slavery somehow afloat in a world in which nobody is responsible. #Quote by Henry Wiencek
Owners quotes by Jenny Lawson
#8. Daddy leaned toward us and told us rather conspiratorially that this box held our newest pet. This is the same man who once brought home a baby bobcat, let it loose in the house, and forgot to mention it because he "didn't think it was important," so for him to be excited I assumed the box had to contain something truly amazing, like a two-headed lizard, or a baby chupacabra. He opened the box and whispered excitedly, "Come out and meet your new owners, Pickle. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Owners quotes by John Steinbeck
#9. The great owners, striking at the immediate thing, the widening government, the growing labor unity; striking at new taxes, at plans; not knowing these things are results, not causes. Results, not causes; results, not causes. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Owners quotes by Leon Trotsky
#10. Lenin refused to recognise moral norms established by slave-owners for their slaves and never observed by the slave-owners themselves; he called upon the Proletariat to extend the class struggle into the moral sphere too. Who fawns before the precepts established by the enemy will never vanquish that enemy! #Quote by Leon Trotsky
Owners quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#11. 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
Owners quotes by Cornelius Vanderbilt
#12. Never be a minion, always be an owner. #Quote by Cornelius Vanderbilt
Owners quotes by Eric Swalwell
#13. I support gun safety measures, and I'll tell you, I grew up in a family of gun owners and hunters, and I went hunting with my dad as a kid, and you know, I have deep respect for the Second Amendment and the culture of our country. #Quote by Eric Swalwell
Owners quotes by Karen Kingsbury
#14. As I watched bookstores close, I began to wonder how that felt for the owners. Owning a bookstore was their dream and now they're struggling and seeing those dreams fall apart. #Quote by Karen Kingsbury
Owners quotes by Bryan Burrough
#15. Everyone in the room knew about leveraged buyouts, often called LBOs. In an LBO, a small group of senior executives, usually working with a Wall Street partner, proposes to buy its company from public shareholders, using massive amounts of borrowed money. Critics of this procedure called it stealing the company from its owners and fretted that the growing mountain of corporate debt was hindering America's ability to compete abroad. Everyone knew LBOs meant deep cuts in research and every other imaginable budget, all sacrificed to pay off debt. Proponents insisted that companies forced to meet steep debt payments grew lean and mean. On one thing they all agreed: The executives who launched LBOs got filthy rich. #Quote by Bryan Burrough
Owners quotes by George Cukor
#16. It is reassuring for people to feel they have a boss, someone who knows the answers and has charted the course. #Quote by George Cukor
Owners quotes by Anne Lamott
#17. Everyone is flailing through this life without an owner's manual, with whatever modicum of grace and good humor we can manage. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Owners quotes by Anonymous
#18. Pit bulls languish in kennels and shelters across the United States because they were originally conditioned by their owners to be "tough," but then they became too much for their owners to handle. #Quote by Anonymous
Owners quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#19. Before strongly desiring anything, we should look carefully into the happiness of its present owner. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Owners quotes by Jack Valenti
#20. A huge parasite in the marketplace, feeding and fattening itself off of local television stations and copyright owners of copyrighted material. We do not like it because we think it wrong and unfair. #Quote by Jack Valenti
Owners quotes by Richard Pryor
#21. What I am for is justice for everyone, just like it says in the Constitution. #Quote by Richard Pryor
Owners quotes by Plato
#22. He who is not a good servant will not be a good master. #Quote by Plato
Owners quotes by Manuel Castells
#23. As for the employees, the payment in stock options revives, somewhat ironically, the old anarchist ideology of self-management of the company, as they are co-owners, co-producers, and co-managers of the firm. #Quote by Manuel Castells
Owners quotes by Gleeson White
#24. To delight a child, to add a new joy to the crowded miracles of childhood, is no less worth doing than to leave a Sistine Chapel to astound a somewhat bored procession of tourists; or to have written a classic that sells by the thousands and is possessed unread by all save an infinitesimal percentage of its owners. It is, then, not an ignoble thing to do one's very best to give our coming rulers – children – a taste of the Kingdom of Art. #Quote by Gleeson White
Owners quotes by Bertrand Russell
#25. The conception of duty, speaking historically, has been a means used by the holders of power to induce others to live for the interests of their masters rather than for their own. Of course the holders of power conceal this fact from themselves by managing to believe that their interests are identical with the larger interests of humanity. Sometimes this is true; Athenian slave owners, for instance, employed part of their leisure in making a permanent contribution to civilization which would have been impossible under a just economic system. Leisure is essential to civilization, and in former times leisure for the few was only rendered possible by the labors of the many. But their labors were valuable, not because work is good, but because leisure is good. And #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Owners quotes by Frankie Boyle
#26. The owners of a dog which swallowed a diamond worth £12000 had to wait three days until it re-emerged. With a bit of planning it could have been a nice way to propose. #Quote by Frankie Boyle
Owners quotes by Maria Nikiforova
#27. The property of the estate owners (pomeshchiks) doesn't belong to any particular detachment, but to the people as a whole. Let the people take what they want. #Quote by Maria Nikiforova
Owners quotes by Rajneesh
#28. The world is slowly, slowly moving towards love relationships; hence there is great turmoil. All the old institutions are disappearing - they have to disappear, because they were based on the I/it relationship. New ways of communication, new ways of sharing are bound to be discovered. They will have a different flavor, the flavor of love, of sharing. They will be nonpossessive; there will be no owner. #Quote by Rajneesh
Owners quotes by Elayne Boosler
#29. While editors and newspaper owners currently fret over shrinking readership and lost profits, they do the one thing that insures cutting their own throats; they keep reducing space for the one feature that attracts new young readers in the first place; the comic strips. #Quote by Elayne Boosler
Owners quotes by Yogi Berra
#30. I don't blame the players today for the money. I blame the owners. They started it. They wanna give it to 'em? More power to 'em. #Quote by Yogi Berra
Owners quotes by Mikhail Khodorkovsky
#31. Today, a skilled manager makes more than the owner. And owners fight each other to get the skilled managers. #Quote by Mikhail Khodorkovsky
Owners quotes by Curt Flood
#32. Whatever I contributed to the unique morale of the Cardinals was part of this growth, and so, of course, was my decision to have it out in public with the owners of organized baseball. #Quote by Curt Flood
Owners quotes by Anonymous
#33. For a time, the press lord William Randolph Hearst did everything in his vast powers to keep the film "Citizen Kane" from finding an audience. He intimidated theater owners, refused to let ads run in his newspapers, and even pressured studio sycophants to destroy the negative. At first, the titan of San Simeon had his way: the film faded from view after a splashy initial release. But over the years, "Citizen Kane" came to be recognized for the masterpiece it is, and now regularly tops lists as the greatest film ever made. #Quote by Anonymous
Owners quotes by Jayson Williams
#34. I don't think there is a person who loves the Nets as much as I do - from our fans, all the employees in the arenas, the front office personnel and the owners. I will always be loyal to our fans and the Nets. #Quote by Jayson Williams
Owners quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#35. Brahmins were essentially transmitters and stewards of Vedic hymns and rituals, not its interpreters or owners. Over time, however, they used their exalted position to dominate society and claim entitlements. It was an irony of history that those who carried knowledge of how to expand the mind failed to expand their own minds, and chose the common path of domination instead. #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik
Owners quotes by Robert Griffin III
#36. I hate to talk about myself like that, but if I had to straight up tell a head coach or an owner why they should take me, it's because I'm the best in everything I've done. #Quote by Robert Griffin III
Owners quotes by Mary Renault
#37. But it is not for the perfect vase or the polished gem to choose their owners. #Quote by Mary Renault
Owners quotes by Walter Kirn
#38. Cross the wrong state border with your gun, or wake up one morning to new legislation or a new presidential executive order, and suddenly you're the bad guy, not the good guy. No wonder some gun owners seem so touchy; they feel, at some level, like criminals in waiting. #Quote by Walter Kirn
Owners quotes by Kevin Durant
#39. Mr. Bennett, for just giving me this opportunity. I thank you for always being there for me when I need you. Every time I see you under the basket for a game, I feel confident. No matter how the game is going, I look at you - I say, if our owner's behind us, we can do it all. I thank you so much for giving me this opportunity. #Quote by Kevin Durant
Owners quotes by Jeff Schultz
#40. If Jim Mora loses his job with the Falcons, it most likely will be because of wins and losses. Problem is, when you work for such an image-conscious owner and in the most fickle of sports towns, random acts of dumbness tend to shrink a guy's margin for error. #Quote by Jeff Schultz
Owners quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#41. In the early 1800s, religion was often used as a way to keep slavery in place. Slaves were forced to attend the church of their owners, listen to selective dogma that kept them obedient and subservient. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Owners quotes by Walter Dean Myers
#42. What I found fascinating was just how quickly the best of the young Negro League players were drafted into the major leagues once Branch Rickey broke the color line by hiring Jackie Robinson. It was clear that all of the major league owners already knew the talents of the black ballplayers that they had refused to let into their league. #Quote by Walter Dean Myers
Owners quotes by Lisa Cook
#43. The infamous Pit bulls were recently bred by some irresponsible owners for fighting; but did you know that early pit bulls were terrific nanny dogs? They actually kept watch on infants and had the tough skin and musculature to withstand playful abuse by infants. #Quote by Lisa Cook
Owners quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#44. Most of the dreams that have suffered to death were murdered by their own owners. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Owners quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#45. In every country where independence has taken the place of liberty, the first desire of a manly heart is to possess a weapon which at once renders him capable of defence or attack, and, by rendering its owner fearsome, makes him feared. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Owners quotes by John Abbott
#46. A Lifetime Warranty on a concealed carry firearm isn't much good, If the firearm fails in an armed encounter, the owner of the firearm might expire, along with the warranty. #Quote by John Abbott
Owners quotes by Warren Buffett
#47. Charlie and I believe our four criteria are essential if directors are to do their job - which, by law, is to faithfully represent owners. Yet these criteria are usually ignored. Instead, consultants and CEOs seeking board candidates will often say, "We're looking for a woman," or "a Hispanic," or "someone from abroad," or what have you. It sometimes sounds as if the mission is to stock Noah's ark. Over the years I've been queried many times about potential directors and have yet to hear anyone ask, "Does he think like an intelligent owner?" The questions I instead #Quote by Warren Buffett
Owners quotes by Isabella Bird
#48. The plantations in the Hilo district enjoy special advantages, for by turning some of the innumerable mountain streams into flumes, the owners can bring a great part of their cane and all their wood for fuel down to the mills without other expense than the original cost of the woodwork. #Quote by Isabella Bird
Owners quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#49. In the shop we buy and sell them, but in truth books have no owner. Every book you see here has been somebody's best friend. #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Owners quotes by Laura Ingalls Wilder
#50. Did you ever think how a bit of land shows the character of the owner? #Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Owners quotes by Aimee Bender
#51. My favorite of all was still the place on Vermont, the French cafe, La Lyonnaise, that had given me the best onion soup on that night with George and my father. The two owners hailed from France, from Lyon, before the city had boomed into a culinary sibling of Paris. Inside, it had only a few tables, and the waiters served everything out of order, and it had a B rating in the window, and they usually sat me right by the swinging kitchen door, but I didn't care about any of it.
There, I ordered chicken Dijon, or beef Bourguignon, or a simple green salad, or a pate sandwich, and when it came to the table, I melted into whatever arrived. I lavished in a forkful of spinach gratin on the side, at how delighted the chef had clearly been over the balance of spinach and cheese, like she was conducting a meeting of spinach and cheese, like a matchmaker who knew they would shortly fall in love. Sure, there were small distractions and preoccupations in it all, but I could find the food in there, the food was the center, and the person making the food was so connected with the food that I could really, for once, enjoy it. #Quote by Aimee Bender
Owners quotes by Henry Calvert Simons
#52. Private property in the instruments of production is an institutional device both for dispersing power and for securing effective organization of production. The only simple property system is that of a slave society with a single slave owner - which, significantly, is the limiting case of despotism and of monopoly. Departure from such a system is a fair measure of human progress. #Quote by Henry Calvert Simons
Owners quotes by David Cone
#53. The owners said that they wanted the salary cap and refused to promise that they would abide by the rules of the just-expired contract after the season ended. Believing we had no choice, the players went on strike in August of 1994. #Quote by David Cone
Owners quotes by Aaron Levie
#54. There's a lot of pride that business owners have. It's actually really critical that pride and ownership extends to everyone in the organization. I think of everyone is in the same boat in driving the company forward. #Quote by Aaron Levie
Owners quotes by Ed Miliband
#55. A company is not accountable just to its owners, but to its workers and its customers. #Quote by Ed Miliband
Owners quotes by Josh Hanagarne
#56. A mind can be lost without its owner's death. A mind that no longer questions only fulfills the rudimentary aspects of its function. #Quote by Josh Hanagarne
Owners quotes by Ronald Reagan
#57. Small business is the gateway to opportunity for those who want a piece of the American dream. [ ... ] Well, wouldn't it be nice to hear a little more about the forgotten heroes of America-those who create most of our new jobs, like the owners of stores down the street; the faithfuls who support our churches, synagogues, schools, and communities; the brave men and women everywhere who produce our goods, feed a hungry world, and keep our families warm while they invest in the future to build a better America? That's where miracles are made, not in Washington, D.C. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Owners quotes by George Orwell
#58. Wealth and privilege are most easily defended when they are possessed jointly. The so-called 'abolition of private property' which took place in the middle years of the century meant, in effect, the concentration of property in far fewer hands than before: but with this difference, that the new owners were a group instead of a mass of individuals. #Quote by George Orwell
Owners quotes by Edgar Wilson Nye
#59. The earth is convulsed with a universal sob, and the roads are muddy with tears. But I do not call to mind a more touching picture of unavailing misery and ruin, and hopeless chaos, than the plug hat that has endeavored to keep sober and maintain self-respect while its owner was drunk. #Quote by Edgar Wilson Nye
Owners quotes by James Weldon Johnson
#60. I know the South claims that it has spent millions for the education of the blacks, and that it has of its own free will shouldered this awful burden. It seems to be forgetful of the fact that these millions have been taken from the public tax funds for education, and that the law of political economy which recognizes the land owner as the one who really pays the taxes is not tenable. It would be just as reasonable for the relatively few land owners of Manhattan to complain that they had to stand the financial burden of the education of the thousands and thousands of children whose parents pay rent for tenements and flats. Let the millions of producing and consuming Negroes be taken out of the South, and it would be quickly seen how much less of public funds there would be to appropriate for education or any other purpose. #Quote by James Weldon Johnson
Owners quotes by Mark Twain
#61. [Patriotism] ... is a word which always commemorates a robbery. There isn't a foot of land in the world which doesn't represent the ousting and re-ousting of a longline of successive "owners" who each in turn, as "patriots" with proud swelling hearts defended it against the next gang of "robbers" who came to steal it and did
and became swelling-hearted patriots in their turn. #Quote by Mark Twain
Owners quotes by William H. Seward
#62. But assuming the same premises, to wit, that all men are equal by the law of nature and of nations, the right of property in slaves falls to the ground; for one who is equal to another cannot be the owner or property of that other. #Quote by William H. Seward
Owners quotes by Robert Mugabe
#63. We have said the first step was to designate the land, inform the owners. And the second would be to get the responses from the owners. And this will be openly done. #Quote by Robert Mugabe
Owners quotes by O.J. Simpson
#64. NFL owners should quit worrying about silly things like players celebrating in the end zone. They should give them something to really celebrate. Get rid of the artificial surfaces. #Quote by O.J. Simpson
Owners quotes by David Ricardo
#65. The facility of obtaining food is beneficial in two ways to the owners of capital, it at the same time raises profits and increases the amount of consumable commodities. #Quote by David Ricardo
Owners quotes by Danny Silk
#66. Every problem must find it's owner before we can ever offer a solution #Quote by Danny Silk
Owners quotes by Tommy Shaw
#67. Around '75 when the recession hit, club owners started going to disco because it was cheaper for them to just buy a sound system than it was to hire a band. #Quote by Tommy Shaw
Owners quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#68. If the basic structure of Grameen is changed, the worry is that the poor women who are the rightful owners of the bank will be disenfranchised. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Owners quotes by Grover Cleveland
#69. No investment on earth is so safe, so sure, so certain to enrich its owners as undeveloped realty. I always advise my friends to place their savings in realty near a growing city. There is no such savings bank anywhere. #Quote by Grover Cleveland
Owners quotes by Ulysses S. Grant
#70. The great bulk of the legal voters of the South were men who owned no slaves; their homes were generally in the hills and poor country; their facilities for educating their children, even up to the point of reading and writing, were very limited; their interest in the contest was very meagre
what there was, if they had been capable of seeing it, was with the North; they too needed emancipation. Under the old regime they were looked down upon by those who controlled all the affairs in the interest of slave-owners, as poor white trash who were allowed the ballot so long as they cast it according to direction. #Quote by Ulysses S. Grant
Owners quotes by Glenn Gould
#71. A record is a concert without halls and a museum whose curator is the owner. #Quote by Glenn Gould
Owners quotes by Candice Millard
#72. With the Lincoln assassination, the South didn't feel it could mourn along with the North. But Garfield was beloved by all the American people. He was trusted and respected by North and South, by freed slaves and former slave owners. Also by pioneers, which his parents had been, and by immigrants. #Quote by Candice Millard
Owners quotes by Doug Richard
#73. A good business is based on information, analysis and insight, not speculation or opinion. Not all business owners share #Quote by Doug Richard
Owners quotes by Hilary Rosen
#74. The marketplace can handle this. The laws are there. The courts have shown a consistent ability to find a balance between copyright owners and copyright users. #Quote by Hilary Rosen
Owners quotes by Ottmar Edenhofer
#75. First of all, developed countries have basically expropriated the atmosphere of the world community. But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore ... #Quote by Ottmar Edenhofer
Owners quotes by Duke Ellington
#76. The wise musicians are those who play what they can master. #Quote by Duke Ellington
Owners quotes by Jon Katz
#77. Owners sometimes think their dogs have already suffered so much that they couldn't possibly inflict any more criticism. Yet it's that very firm, effective training that would make those dogs happier and more secure. #Quote by Jon Katz
Owners quotes by The Cooperative Graphic Novel
#78. If parliament and owners have locked the door to liberty, then we don't beg to be given the key, or get shot in the street trying to wrest it from them. We build our own liberty, and leave them as fools, guarding an empty room. #Quote by The Cooperative Graphic Novel
Owners quotes by David Gregory
#79. Let's just be clear here. The vice president of the United States accidentally shoots a man, and he feels that it's appropriate for a ranch owner who witnessed this to tell the local Corpus Christi newspaper and not the White House press corps at large, or notify the public in a national way. #Quote by David Gregory
Owners quotes by Erma Bombeck
#80. Dreams have only one owner at a time. That's why dreamers are lonely. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Owners quotes by Walter Benjamin
#81. Everything remembered, everything thought, all awareness becomes base, frame, pedestal, lock and key of his ownership. Period, region, craft, previous owners - all, for the true collector, merge in each one of his possessions into a magical encyclopaedia whose quintessence is the fate of his object. #Quote by Walter Benjamin
Owners quotes by Rudolf Rocker
#82. So long as millions of human beings in every country has to sell their labour-power to a small minority of owners, and to sink into the most wretched misery if they could find no buyers, the so called "equality before the law" remains a pious fraud, since the laws are made by those who find themselves in possession of the social wealth. But in the same way there can also be no talk of a "right over one's own person," for that right ends when one is compelled to submit to the economic dictation of another if he does not want to starve. #Quote by Rudolf Rocker
Owners quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#83. I was scared for my life, but at the same time I couldn't help noticing how bright everything was, the ice not really blue at all but shot through with spangled points of rosy light so dazzling that it made me crinkle up my eyes as though I had something to smile about, and there was a shadow cast by the Owner's shoulder that washed from seagreen to purple as he twisted in his traces. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Owners quotes by Mark Z. Danielewski
#84. Back on shore everyone was pretty messed up, but the owner/captain was by far the worst off. He ended up drunk for a week, though the only thing he ever said was "So?"
The boat's gone. "So?"
Your mate's dead. "So?"
Hey at least you're alive. "So?"
An awful word but it does harden you.
It hardened me. #Quote by Mark Z. Danielewski
Owners quotes by Pippa DaCosta
#85. And there's no synthetic owners manual?" His lips twitched, smile threatening to break into a grin.

A joke. He wasn't funny. "Do you come with an owners' manual, Captain? Because I'd like to study your troubleshooting section."

"Would you like to strip me down to my nuts and bolts, and figure out what makes me tick?"

"I knew what made you tick from the moment we first met. That's why I punched you between the legs."

~ #1001 & Caleb #Quote by Pippa DaCosta
Owners quotes by Karl Marx
#86. Even an entire society, a nation, or all simultaneously existing societies taken together, are not owners of the earth. They are simply its possessors, its beneficiaries, and have to bequeath it in an improved state to succeeding generations. #Quote by Karl Marx
Owners quotes by James W. Loewen
#87. Or guides might initiate a discussion of slave names. Many owners insisted on the right to name their newborn slaves - rather than allowing their parents this pleasure - and then deliberately gave them demeaning names or names that ironically invoked godlike figures from antiquity. George Washington, for instance, used Hercules, Paris-boy, Sambo, Sucky, Flukey, Doll, Suck Bass, Caesar, and Cupid. Most slaves received no last names. Guides could ask visitors to imagine the self-respect of black children under these conditions. #Quote by James W. Loewen
Owners quotes by George Herbert
#88. Fear keepes and looks to the vineyard, and not the owner. #Quote by George Herbert
Owners quotes by Russell B. Long
#89. There are but three political-economic roads from which we can choose ... We could take the first course and further exacerbate the already concentrated ownership of productive capital in the American economy. Or we could join the rest of the world by taking the second path, that of nationalization. Or we can take the third road, establishing policies to diffuse capital ownership broadly, so that many individuals, particularly workers, can participate as owners of industrial capital. The choice is ours. #Quote by Russell B. Long
Owners quotes by Adolphus Busch
#90. The NRA appears to have evolved into the lobby for gun and ammunition manufacturers rather than gun owners. #Quote by Adolphus Busch
Owners quotes by Martin Adams
#91. Since people can only be paid for their goods and services or extract rent from society, less income is available to service the payment of goods and services when proportionally more income is used to pay monopolized rent for land. Essentially, whenever property owners collect rent from rising land values, fewer financial resources are left over for wages and capital investments, and this dynamic can effectively put society on the fast track toward social decline and wealth inequality. #Quote by Martin Adams
Owners quotes by William Gibson
#92. To call up a demon you must learn its name. Men dreamed that, once, but now it is real in another way. You know that, Case. Your business is to learn the names of programs, the long formal names, names the owners seek to conceal. True names . . . #Quote by William Gibson
Owners quotes by Barack Obama
#93. I do not accept that we cannot find a common sense way to preserve our traditions, including our basic second amendment freedoms and the rights of law abiding gun owners, while at the same time reducing the gun violence that unleashes so much mayhem on a regular basis. #Quote by Barack Obama
Owners quotes by James A. Michener
#94. Although most of us know Vincent van Gogh in Arles and Paul Gauguin in Tahiti as if they were neighbors
somewhat disreputable but endlessly fascinating
none of us can name two French generals or department store owners of that period. I take enormous pride in considering myself an artist, one of the necessaries. #Quote by James A. Michener
Owners quotes by Michael Lewis
#95. The relationship between the people and their money in California is such that you can pluck almost any city at random and enter a crisis. San Jose has the highest per capita income of any city in the United States, after New York. It has the highest credit rating of any city in California with a population over 250,000. It is one of the few cities in America with a triple-A rating from Moody's and Standard & Poor's, but only because its bondholders have the power to compel the city to levy a tax on property owners to pay off the bonds. The city itself is not all that far from being bankrupt. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Owners quotes by Rupert Sheldrake
#96. Right now, any opinion anyone has about whether dogs can or cannot really tell when their owner is coming home by some unknown means ... nobody knows. The weight of evi dence suggests they can. #Quote by Rupert Sheldrake
Owners quotes by Skeletonkeypm
#97. Well maintained owners' property and instant maintenance request handling. #Quote by Skeletonkeypm
Owners quotes by G. William Domhoff
#98. The idea that a relatively fixed group of privileged people might shape the economy and government for their own benefit goes against the American grain. Nevertheless, the owners and top-level managers in large income-producing properties are far and away the dominant power figures in the United States. Their corporations, banks, and agribusinesses come together as a corporate community that dominates the federal government in Washington. Their real estate, construction, and land development companies form growth coalitions that dominate most local governments. #Quote by G. William Domhoff
Owners quotes by Sarah MacLean
#99. 'A Rogue by Any Other Name' is the first book in the 'Rules of Scoundrels' series, centered on a legendary pre-Victorian casino and her four scandalous aristocratic owners. #Quote by Sarah MacLean
Owners quotes by Hasso Plattner
#100. Fans don't like owners. They know they are somewhere - actually, in Germany, some owners are anonymous. Fans don't sympathize with owners, so ownership stays in the back. #Quote by Hasso Plattner
Owners quotes by Alfred D. Chandler, Jr.
#101. The modern joint stock firm is the outcome of innumerable decisions made by individual entrepreneurs, owners and managers. For these decision makers the choices among alternatives were limited and the outcomes uncertain, but almost always there were choices. Despite the variability of these individual decisions, taken cumulatively they produced clear patterns of institutional change #Quote by Alfred D. Chandler, Jr.
Owners quotes by Jeffrey Zeldman
#102. Business owners should think of designers as architects, not decorators. #Quote by Jeffrey Zeldman
Owners quotes by Michel Salgado
#103. When we found out Blackburn's owners wanted us to do a chicken advert for Venky's, we didn't really know what to think. I had to pretend to love it, but the truth is, one bite and my stomach was in knots. #Quote by Michel Salgado
Owners quotes by Joan Didion
#104. This process, one of trading the state to outside owners in exchange for their (it now seems) entirely temporary agreement to enrich us, in toher words the pauperization of California, had in fact begun at the time Americans first entered the state, took what they could, and, abetted by the native weekness for boosterism, set about selling the rest. #Quote by Joan Didion
Owners quotes by Rebecca Raisin
#105. Second hand books had so much life in them. They'd lived, sometimes in many homes, or maybe just one. They'd been on airplanes, traveled to sunny beaches, or crowded into a backpack and taken high up a mountain where the air thinned.

"Some had been held aloft tepid rose-scented baths, and thickened and warped with moisture. Others had child-like scrawls on the acknowledgement page, little fingers looking for a blank space to leave their mark. Then there were the pristine novels, ones that had been read carefully, bookmarks used, almost like their owner barely pried the pages open so loathe were they to damage their treasure.

I loved them all.

And I found it hard to part with them. Though years of book selling had steeled me. I had to let them go, and each time made a fervent wish they'd be read well, and often.

Missy, my best friend, said I was completely cuckoo, and that I spent too much time alone in my shadowy shop, because I believed my books communicated with me. A soft sigh here, as they stretched their bindings when dawn broke, or a hum, as they anticipated a customer hovering close who might run a hand along their cover, tempting them to flutter their pages hello. Books were fussy when it came to their owners, and gave off a type of sound, an almost imperceptible whirr, when the right person was near. Most people weren't aware that books chose us, at the time when we needed them. #Quote by Rebecca Raisin
Owners quotes by Jim Bouton
#106. For a hundred years, the owners screwed the players. For 25 years, the players have screwed the owners-they've got 75 years to go. #Quote by Jim Bouton
Owners quotes by Giovanni Ruffini
#107. A human heart is a skein of such imperceptibly and subtly interwoven threads that even the owner of it is often himself at a loss how to unravel it. #Quote by Giovanni Ruffini
Owners quotes by Dodie Smith
#108. It suddenly seemed astonishing that people should meet especially to eat together - because food goes into the mouth and talk comes out. And if you watch people eating and talking - really watch them - it is a very peculiar sight: hands so busy, forks going up and down, swallowings, words coming out between mouthfuls, jaws working like mad. The more you look at a dinner party, the odder it seems - all the candlelit faces, hands with dishes coming over shoulders, the owners of the hands moving round quietly taking no part in the laughter and conversation. #Quote by Dodie Smith
Owners quotes by Eartha Kitt
#109. I am supposed to be, according to what I am told, one of the children of the cotton plantation owner's sons. If I could prove that, I'd own the whole goddamn everything. #Quote by Eartha Kitt
Owners quotes by Marjorie Garber
#110. A study conducted by the State University of New York at Buffalo Medical School suggested that in times of stress a dog is likely to be more help in calming you down than a spouse or partner. Most dog owners can guess the reason why: dogs never judge us and never compete with us. #Quote by Marjorie Garber
Owners quotes by Jeanne Darst
#111. He was like the Great Santini of the Strand. Few people could take him on; he was so well-read and had a memory that could retain every detail of everything he'd ever read, as well as jokes, lyrics, arias, names of store owners he'd met on his honeymoon in Paris, names of restaurants where gangsters were gunned down in 1924. He could quote lines from books he disliked better than you could quote lines from what you claimed was your favorite book of all time. #Quote by Jeanne Darst
Owners quotes by Harold Prince
#112. The truth is, for some absurd reason, no one is willing to admit that the interests of the producers and the theater owners are not the same. #Quote by Harold Prince
Owners quotes by Pablo Neruda
#113. I was the owner of my own darkness. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Owners quotes by George Benson
#114. One of the first things electric I ever saw was a guitar. I was living in a house with no electricity until, at 7, we moved to a house that had it. It had electric lights, but the previous owners had even taken the light bulbs with them when they moved. #Quote by George Benson
Owners quotes by Fuminori Nakamura
#115. A wallet shows a person's personality and lifestyle. Just like a cell phone, it is at the center, forming the nucleus of the owner's secrets, everything he carries on him. #Quote by Fuminori Nakamura
Owners quotes by Rosa Parks
#116. That was a difference between black slaves and white indentured servants. Black slaves were usually not allowed to keep their names, but were given new names by their owners. #Quote by Rosa Parks
Owners quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#117. Etatism by no means aims at the formal transformation of all ownership of the means of production into State ownership by a complete overthrow of the established legal system. Only the biggest industrial, mining, and transport enterprises are to be nationalized; in agriculture, and in medium- and small-scale industry, private property is nominally to continue. Nevertheless, all enterprises are to become State undertakings in fact. Owners are to be left the title and dignity of ownership, it is true, and to be given a right to the receipt of a 'reasonable' income, 'in accordance with their position'; but, in fact, every business is to be changed into a government office and every livelihood into an official profession. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Owners quotes by Catfish Hunter
#118. On the day I was signed, Mr. Finley, the owner of the Athletics at that time came up to me and said, 'When you were six you ran away from home, and when your parents found you at a nearby lake, you had already caught two catfish and were pulling in a third. Now repeat it back to me.' #Quote by Catfish Hunter
Owners quotes by Eric Schneiderman
#119. A factory-installed security measure - one that phone owners would have to opt out of, rather than opting in - could automatically render purloined devices inoperable on any network, anywhere in the world. No resale value, no thefts. #Quote by Eric Schneiderman

#122. Everyone has a right to bear arms. If you take guns away from legal gun owners, then the only people who have guns are the bad guys. #Quote by Bruce Willis
Owners quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#123. ... "Dangerous!" Vea laughed radiantly. "What an utterly marvellous compliment! Why am I dangerous, Shevek?"
"Why, because you know that in the eyes of men you are a thing, a thing owned, bought, sold. And so you think only of tricking the owners, of getting revenge –"... #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Owners quotes by Gary Miller
#124. Today, currently, business owners can go out and find out if the person they are hiring is eligible to work here or if they are not. We need to think about how we are impacting workers. #Quote by Gary Miller
Owners quotes by Barack Obama
#125. If we choose to keep those tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, if we choose to keep a tax break for corporate jet owners, if we choose to keep tax breaks for oil and gas companies that are making hundreds of billions of dollars, then that means we've got to cut some kids off from getting a college scholarship. #Quote by Barack Obama
Owners quotes by James C. Scott
#126. New World escape crops made the economics of escape as tempting as its politics. Colonial officials tended to stigmatize cassava and maize as crops of lazy natives whose main aim was to shirk work. In the New World, too, those whose job it was to drive the population into wage labor or onto the plantation deplored crops that allowed a free peasantry to maintain its autonomy. Hacienda owners in Central America claimed that with cassava, all a peasant needed was a shotgun and a fishhook and he would cease to work regularly for wages. #Quote by James C. Scott
Owners quotes by Annie Proulx
#127. James said, "Who are these lawless men who cut your - our - timber?" "Every man!" Edward said angrily, spit flying. "They are mostly small, mean men seeking to make some money. But there are so many of them. They are often savage hungry fellows who stop at nothing. They fight the owners until blood flows and heads are cracked. Even when we catch and prosecute them, they and their friends slip back at night and continue cutting. Settlers, failed businessmen, shingle makers and clapboard sawyers, those are the thieves. And moonlight nights see many good pines fall. #Quote by Annie Proulx
Owners quotes by William H Gass
#128. We must take our sentences seriously, which means we must understand them philosophically, and the odd thing is that the few who do, who take them with utter sober seriousness, the utter sober seriousness of right-wing parsons and political saviors, the owners of Pomeranians, are the liars who want to be believed, the novelists and poets, who know that the creatures they imagine have no other being than the sounding syllables which the reader will speak into his own weary and distracted head. There are no magic words. To say the words is magical enough. #Quote by William H Gass

#130. It is time to leave traditional marketing concepts which focus on the product and marketing experts should focus on customers' experiences about the product.Today, since traditional marketing concepts are insufficient and firms that use the experiential marketing are getting successful as they appeal customers' feeling and sense. Firms owners should have direct relationship with the customers, so customers can reach the firm and the product when wants to get experience. #Quote by Anonymous
Owners quotes by Lucy Parsons
#131. Let every dirty, lousy tramp arm himself with a revolver or a knife, and lay in wait on the steps of the palaces of the rich and stab or shoot the owners as they come out. Let us kill them without mercy, and let it be a war of extermination. #Quote by Lucy Parsons
Owners quotes by Angela Y. Davis
#132. Whoever challenged the racial hierarchy was marked a potential victim of the mob. The endless roster of the dead came to include every sort of insurgent - from the owners of successful Black businesses and workers pressing for higher wages to those who refused to be called "boy" and the defiant women who resisted white men's sexual abuses. Yet public opinion had been captured, and it was taken for granted that lynching was a just response to the barbarous sexual crimes against white womanhood. #Quote by Angela Y. Davis
Owners quotes by George Du Maurier
#133. Lovely female shapes are terrible complicators of the difficulties and dangers of this earthly life, especially for their owners. #Quote by George Du Maurier
Owners quotes by Ronald Reagan
#134. Some years ago a top Ford official was showing the late Walter Reuther through the very automates plant in Cleveland, Ohio and he said to him jokingly, "Walter, you'll have a hard time collecting union dues from these machines." and Walter said, "you are going to have more trouble trying to sell automobiles to them." Both of them let it stop there. There was a logical answer to that ... the owners of the machines could buy automobiles and if you increase the number of owners you increase the number of consumers. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Owners quotes by Susan Orlean
#135. States should pass laws making it illegal to own or trade wild animals; the phony 'educational' permits that many private owners have used to skirt those laws should be eliminated. #Quote by Susan Orlean
Owners quotes by Elizabeth Peters
#136. That must be why some people like dogs; they can be made to feel guilty about anything, including the sins of their owners. Cats refuse to take the blame for anything - including their own sins. #Quote by Elizabeth Peters
Owners quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#137. Other's power, other's enjoyments, other's space, people have become the owners of that which does not belong to one's self. If they become the owners of 'Self', death is no more; One is himself, the Absolute Supreme Soul. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Owners quotes by Haruki Murakami

Owners quotes by George Albee
#140. The houses in the better part of San Francisco, in those days, were all alike and all so ugly it was a wonder even their owners did not know it. (My father called it the better part of the city because he lived there.) Most of them were built on hillsides, with two or three of their corners standing on stilts. From the sidewalk you saw the doors a dozen feet above your head, the stairs leading up to them and a flat, bare expanse of pine sheathing enclosing the stilts. Each crowded against the next without an inch to spare, the houses themselves were narrow and looked taller than they actually were. If one of them had not occasionally been painted a dull brown instead of a dull green, or if a panel of brick had not been set here and there among the panels of wood, nobody could have told where his neighbor's left off and his own began. All of them rose straight from the sidewalks; there were no lawns, and no trees. A few blocks away there were well-proportioned and attractive houses, but the builders of our street had searched farther for their model - in a box factory, from the evidence. We were moderately rich, and nothing was too bad for us. #Quote by George Albee
Owners quotes by Lauren Tarshis
#141. In the weeks after the flood, the Humane Society of the United States organized the biggest animal rescue in history. Hundreds of volunteers from all over the country came to New Orleans. They broke into boarded-up houses, plucked dogs and cats from rooftops and trees, and even rescued pigs and goats. Many animals were reunited with their owners. Others were sent to shelters across America to be adopted by new families. #Quote by Lauren Tarshis
Owners quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#142. I got hold of a copy of the video that showed how Saddam Hussein had actually confirmed himself in power. This snuff-movie opens with a plenary session of the Ba'ath Party central committee: perhaps a hundred men. Suddenly the doors are locked and Saddam, in the chair, announces a special session. Into the room is dragged an obviously broken man, who begins to emit a robotic confession of treason and subversion, that he sobs has been instigated by Syrian and other agents. As the (literally) extorted confession unfolds, names begin to be named. Once a fellow-conspirator is identified, guards come to his seat and haul him from the room. The reclining Saddam, meanwhile, lights a large cigar and contentedly scans his dossiers. The sickness of fear in the room is such that men begin to crack up and weep, rising to their feet to shout hysterical praise, even love, for the leader. Inexorably, though, the cull continues, and faces and bodies go slack as their owners are pinioned and led away. When it is over, about half the committee members are left, moaning with relief and heaving with ardent love for the boss. (In an accompanying sequel, which I have not seen, they were apparently required to go into the yard outside and shoot the other half, thus sealing the pact with Saddam. I am not sure that even Beria or Himmler would have had the nerve and ingenuity and cruelty to come up with that.) #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Owners quotes by David Stern
#143. I regret the 1998 - 99 lockout. I regret that we didn't work harder to educate our players and our owners about what the damage would be. I never can quite come up with the answer on what else we should have done, but I always blame a part of the problem on us and some part on the players. #Quote by David Stern
Owners quotes by Jerry Greenfield
#144. One out of every 100 families in Vermont was a part owner of Ben and Jerry's. #Quote by Jerry Greenfield
Owners quotes by Gary Sheffield
#145. When McGwire started the home run mania, attendance came back. The owners understood that the sudden spike in homers wasn't accidental. All baseball knew it. But baseball is run on money, and home runs meant money. Baseball turned a blind eye. #Quote by Gary Sheffield
Owners quotes by Robert Chao Romero
#146. It might come as a surprise, but the Bible also addresses the importance of corporate responsibility. The Old Testament "law of gleaning" speaks loud and clear about this. Leviticus 19: 9-10 (NIV) summarizes this important social justice law which is also restated in Deuteronomy 24: "'When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the LORD your God." This law from God Himself, commanded landowners, business owners in our language today, to leave some of their potential profits for immigrants and the poor. #Quote by Robert Chao Romero
Owners quotes by John Flavel
#147. I look upon every good man, as a good book, lent by its owner for another to read, and transcribe the excellent notions and golden passages that are in it for his own benefit, that they may return with him when the owner shall call for the book again: but in case this excellent book shall be thrown into a corner and no use made of it, it justly provokes the owner to take it away in displeasure.

Owners quotes by Sherman Alexie
#152. Jeez, how stupid was I? What kind of job can a reservation Indian boy get? I was too young to deal blackjack at the casino, there were only about fifteen green grass lawns on the reservation (and none of their owners outsourced the mowing jobs), and the only paper route was owned by a tribal elder named Wally. And he had to deliver only fifty papers, so his job was more like a hobby. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Owners quotes by Christopher Alexander
#153. High buildings have no genuine advantages, except in speculative gains for banks and land owners. They are not cheaper, they do not help create open space, they destroy the townscape, they destroy social life, they promote crime, they make life difficult for children, they are expensive to maintain, they wreck the open spaces near them, and they damage light and air and view. #Quote by Christopher Alexander
Owners quotes by Alice McDermott
#154. The owner's wife gave me a container of chicken soup and a quart of rice pudding to take home. She was a broad, solid woman with thick arms and legs. She swiped vigorously at the stain on my coat with a wad of dampened paper towel, and I remembered Pegeen then: There's always someone nice. #Quote by Alice McDermott
Owners quotes by William Shakespeare
#155. Ay, that I had not done a thousand more.
Even now I curse the day - and yet, I think,
Few come within the compass of my curse, -
Wherein I did not some notorious ill,
As kill a man, or else devise his death,
Ravish a maid, or plot the way to do it,
Accuse some innocent and forswear myself,
Set deadly enmity between two friends,
Make poor men's cattle break their necks;
Set fire on barns and hay-stacks in the night,
And bid the owners quench them with their tears.
Oft have I digg'd up dead men from their graves,
And set them upright at their dear friends' doors,
Even when their sorrows almost were forgot;
And on their skins, as on the bark of trees,
Have with my knife carved in Roman letters,
'Let not your sorrow die, though I am dead.'
Tut, I have done a thousand dreadful things
As willingly as one would kill a fly,
And nothing grieves me heartily indeed
But that I cannot do ten thousand more. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Owners quotes by James Gurney
#156. Survival of all or none.
One raindrop raises the sea.
Weapons are enemies even to their owners.
Give more, take less.
Others first, self last.
Observe, listen, and learn.
Do one thing at a time.
Sing every day.
Exercise imagination.
Eat to live, don't live to eat. #Quote by James Gurney
Owners quotes by Jennifer Probst
#157. There is a Rainbow Bridge. It's like dog heaven. We run and play and never get fat. The sun is always warm but not hot, the water is fresh and cold, and we get to just be dogs. We all take turns waiting. The bridge is a beautiful wooden structure that crosses over from dog land to the other side when our owners come. Time means nothing to us, which is hard for humans to understand. #Quote by Jennifer Probst
Owners quotes by Hermann Hesse
#158. We cannot provide a definition of those products from which the age takes it name, the feuilletons. They seem to have formed an uncommonly popular section of the daily newspapers, were produced by the millions, and were a major source of mental pabulum for the reader in want of culture.

They reported on, or rather "chatted" about, a thousand-and-one items of knowledge. The cleverer writers poked fun at their own work. Many such pieces are so incomprehensible that they can only be viewed as self-persiflage on the part of the authors.

In some periods interviews with well-known personalities on current problems were particularly popular. Noted chemists or piano virtuosos would be queried about politics, for example, or popular actors, dancers, gymnasts, aviators, or even poets would be drawn out on the benefits and drawbacks of being a bachelor, or on the presumptive causes of financial crises, and so on.

All that mattered in these pieces was to link a well-known name with a subject of current topical interest.

It is very hard indeed for us to put ourselves in the place of those people so that we can truly understand them. But the great majority, who seem to have been strikingly fond of reading, must have accepted all these grotesque things with credulous earnestness.

If a famous painting changed owners, if a precious manuscript was sold at auction, if an old palace burned down, the readers of many thousands of feature arti #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Owners quotes by Karl Marx
#159. Nature does not produce on the one side owners of money or commodities, and on the other men possessing nothing but their own labour-power. This relation has no natural basis, neither is its social basis one that is common to all historical periods. #Quote by Karl Marx
Owners quotes by Noam Chomsky
#160. Roughly speaking, I think it's accurate to say that a corporate elite of managers and owners governs the economy and the political system as well, at least in very large measure. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Owners quotes by John Steinbeck
#161. Fear the time when the bombs stopped falling while the bombers live - for every bomb is proof that the spirit has not died. And fear the time when the strikes stop while the great owners live - for every little beaten strike is proof that the step is being taken. #Quote by John Steinbeck

#163. The officer chiefly concerned, Mr Pullings, or the Maiden as the Kutaliotes called him because of his mild face and gentle manners, had but to hint that a wall, outhouse, chimney, dovecote might be in the way for it to vanish, plucked down if not by its owners then by his neighbours and the rest of the community. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian

Owners quotes by Murray Rothbard
#165. [T]he crucial question is not, as so many believe, whether property rights should be private or governmental, but rather whether the necessarily 'private' owners are legitimate owners or criminals. For ultimately, there is no entity called 'government'; there are only people forming themselves into groups called 'governments' and acting in a 'governmental' manner. All property is therefore always 'private'; the only and critical question is whether it should reside in the hands of criminals or of the proper and legitimate owners. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Owners quotes by Dexter Romweber
#166. Our parents had to drive us to the gig, or even go in with us because of the liquor laws. The owners were really scared to death that we'd drink. We usually just went out somewhere and smoked weed. I don't smoke anymore, but back then we used to smoke quite a lot. #Quote by Dexter Romweber

Owners quotes by Philip Langdon
#169. Living in a dense environment means a less stressful and time-consuming commute to work without the aid of a car. It's about a greater sense of community and partnership that naturally develops when you walk through a place and casually collide with neighbors. It's about feeling a sense of attachment to stores and bars and restaurants and their owners and employees. Frequently I will stop in to say a hello at a restaurant or store even if I'm not shopping or eating. It's about using a compact life to reduce environmental impact. For me, it boils down to this: a place you walk through is a place you know and love. #Quote by Philip Langdon
Owners quotes by Michael Moore
#170. I've read stories of slave owners who were very generous. They didn't keep them in shackles, they didn't whip the slaves, they built schools and churches for them, free housing, free food, free everything. It's wrong. No matter how nice you make it look, it's wrong. #Quote by Michael Moore
Owners quotes by Colum McCann
#171. The Irish were poor, but not enslaved. He had come here to hack away at the ropes that held American slavery in place. Sometimes it withered him just to keep his mind steady. He was aware that the essence of proper intelligence was the embrace of contradiction. And the recognition of complexity was to be balanced against the need for simplicity. He was still a slave. Fugitive. If he returned to Boston he could be kidnapped at any time, taken south, strapped to a tree, whipped. His owners. They would make a spectacle of his fame. They had tried to silence him for many years already. No longer. He had been given a chance to speak out against what had held him in chains. And he would continue to do so until the links lay in pieces at his feet. #Quote by Colum McCann

#172. looting is a hard-won and dangerous act with potentially terrible consequences, and looters are only stealing from the rich owners' profit margins.

#173. I was also lucky to play for an owner, Bud Selig, who truly cared about his players. He'd call me into his office once in a while when he knew things weren't going so well. And it's funny. Every time I left there I always felt like something good was about to happen. #Quote by Robin Yount
Owners quotes by Jose Canseco
#174. Owners, the way they blackballed me from baseball, the way they used me, in a sense, and then the way they wanted to send a signal to the other players, saying, you know, we're going to get Jose Canseco out of the game. This is a cue or a message for you other guys to stop using steroids because the owners lost total control of the steroid use. #Quote by Jose Canseco

#177. There's simply anger over the accountability that Yelp brings and also this feeling of powerlessness because so much power is now being put in the hands of the consumer.

Owners quotes by Fergus McCann
#180. It would've cost less, and left the previous owners with nothing, to go into liquidation. But it would also be humiliating for Celtic. So we paid all the bills. Celtic means the same to me as it does to other fans. I identify with the club and wish to be proud of it. #Quote by Fergus McCann
Owners quotes by Andrew Bacevich
#181. Time and again-from the collapse of the Soviet Union to the events of 9/11 to the onset of the Arab Spring-events have caught the experts, whether in government or on the outside, completely by surprise. Business owners with comparable performance records go bust. Brokers lose their clients. Physicians get sued for malpractice. Yet think-tankers and policy wonks continue to opine, never pausing to reflect on-or apologize for-their spotty records. #Quote by Andrew Bacevich
Owners quotes by Lionel Shriver
#182. Holocausts do not amaze me. Rapes and child slavery do not amaze me. And Franklin, I know you feel otherwise, but Kevin does not amaze me. I am amazed when I drop a glove in the street and a teenager runs two blocks to return it. I am amazed when a checkout girl flashes me a wide smile with my change, though my own face had been a mask of expedience. Lost wallets posted to their owners, strangers who furnish meticulous directions, neighbors who water each other's houseplants - these things amaze me. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Owners quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#183. Thus dwelt together in love these simple Acadian farmers, - Dwelt in the love of God and of man. Alike were they free from Fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics. Neither locks had they to their doors, nor bars to their windows; But their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of the owners; There the richest was poor, and the poorest lived in abundance. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Owners quotes by Mandy Nachampassack-Maloney
#184. During the day I negotiated buying mom and pop companies and incorporating them into our larger network. Sometimes we let the original owners stay on as consultants. Rarely, actually, if I'm being honest and, even when we did, it never usually lasted for very long. Mostly, those once proud owners would see the box store makeover of their businesses and decide that retirement in some warm locale really did seem the better option. Did I ever feel guilty looking at these hardworking people and taking everything they'd assembled? Not even a little. Would you feel guilty handing someone hundreds of thousands or, in some cases, millions of dollars to go do whatever tickles their fancy? #Quote by Mandy Nachampassack-Maloney

One of the two owners, the man who had been sitting in the front room, was stretched out in there asleep, stockinged-toes pointed at the ceiling, one hand backed defensively against his eyes to ward off the light. He'd taken off his vest and shoes, and that strap that wasn't straight enough to be a suspender-strap was dangling now around one of the knobs at the foot of the bed. It ended in a holster, with a black, cross-grained slab of metal protruding from it. Turner couldn't take his eyes off it, while the long seconds that to him were minutes toiled by.
That meant out, that black slab, more surely than any door. He had to have it. More than that, it meant a continuance of out, for so long as he had it. And he wanted out with all the desperate longing of all trapped things, blindly scratching, clawing their way through a maze to the open. To the open where the equal chance is. #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Owners quotes by Gregg Easterbrook
#187. And if there was something, suppose I wanted to write something really damning or embarrassing about one of the owners, that would really be a problem on the NFL's site. #Quote by Gregg Easterbrook
Owners quotes by Julius Erving
#188. When I played, the owners had the power. The prisoners are running the prison now, not the warden. The warden is strong and he has say so but, the balance of power is definitely with the players. #Quote by Julius Erving
Owners quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#189. But the United States is neither a Christian nation nor the exclusive home of any particular religious group. Non-Christians are not guests. We are as much hosts as any Mayflower-descendant Protestant. It is our home as well as theirs. And in a home with so many owners, there can be no official sectarian prayer. That is what the First Amendment is all about, and the first act by the new administration was in defiance of our Constitution. #Quote by Alan Dershowitz
Owners quotes by Peter Enns
#190. Sticking to the Bible at every turn, like it's an owner's manual or book of instruction, as the way to know God misses what Paul and the rest of the New Testament writers show us again and again: the words on the page of the Bible don't drive the story, Jesus does. Jesus is bigger than the Bible. For #Quote by Peter Enns
Owners quotes by Mortimer Adler
#191. When we ask for love, we don't ask others to be fair to us-but rather to care for us, to be considerate of us. There is a world of difference here between demanding justice ... and begging or pleading for love. #Quote by Mortimer Adler
Owners quotes by Saddam Hussein
#192. And just as your beautiful skyscrapers were destroyed and caused your grief, beautiful buildings and precious homes crumbled over their owners in Lebanon, Palestine, and Iraq by American weapons ... Americans should feel the pain they have inflicted on other peoples of the world, so as when they suffer, they will find the right solution and the right path. #Quote by Saddam Hussein
Owners quotes by Dave Barry
#193. I shared this insight with some other boat owners, and they all agreed that, definitely, putting your boar into the water is asking for trouble. Most of them have had their boats sitting in their driveways long enough to be registered historical landmarks. #Quote by Dave Barry
Owners quotes by B.C. Forbes
#194. What one thing does the world need most today-apart, that is, from the all-inclusive thing we call righteousness? Aren't you inclined to agree that what this old world needs is just the art of being kind? Every time I visit a factory or any other large business concern, I find myself trying to diagnose whether the atmosphere is one of kindliness or the reverse. And somehow, if there is palpably lacking that spirit of kindness, the owners ... have fallen short of achieving 24-carat success no matter how imposing the financial balance sheet may be. #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Owners quotes by Anonymous
#195. This applies not just to people's time, but also to their assets: to drive for Lyft or Uber, you do need a car. The on-demand economy is in many ways a continuation of what has been called the "sharing economy" exemplified by Airbnb, a company which turns apartments into guesthouses and their owners into hoteliers. For people with few assets, though, on-demand labour markets matter more. #Quote by Anonymous
Owners quotes by Edward Hoagland
#196. To relive the relationship between owner and slave we can consider how we treat our cars and dogs - a dog exercising a somewhat similar leverage on our mercies and an automobile being comparable in value to a slave in those days #Quote by Edward Hoagland
Owners quotes by Ryohgo Narita
#197. Tom laughed at the owner's blunt response, and asked another question.
"Chief, how do I say something like, 'you're beautiful', in Russian?"
" ... 'Vi ocharovatelny'."
"Err ... Bee, acherabatennen."
However, hearing this, the Caucasian woman looked confused at Tom, and spoke to the owner behind the counter.
" ... What is this man saying? It is unintelligible. I question its relation to the Japanese language."
With a bitter smile, the owner turned his head towards the woman, and spoke to her.
"'Vi ocharovatelny'."
" ... Why do you suddenly speak these social compliments? Please concisely explain your reasoning."
"That's what that young man over there just tried to say to you."
"In which language, exactly? #Quote by Ryohgo Narita
Owners quotes by Mike Rutherford
#198. I can assume that the younger generations will no longer know what vinyl was. Maybe some kids will take their CD back to the shop, telling the shop owner they have a faulty disc and if they could please get a new one. #Quote by Mike Rutherford
Owners quotes by Chris Colfer
#199. If you ask me, there are two options at hand. Both will change you, but only one will get rid of the monster forever."
"What's the first option?" she asked.
"You can drink all the potions upstairs and return to the woman you were before the curse. You'll never turn another soul into stone and never see a monster in the mirror again. But if you steal from these children, you won't look like a monster anymore - you'll just be one. And that's much worse, in my opinion."
"And the second option?"
"You can restore all the bottled youth, beauty, and stamina to their rightful owners," the frog man explained. "It won't change how you look, but it will change how you look at yourself. From then on, every time you pass a mirror and see your reflection, you won't see a hideous monster; you'l see a woman who chose to help others instead of helping herself. And anyone who looks into the mirror and sees who they are, over what they are - well, it's impossible to curse someone like that. #Quote by Chris Colfer
Owners quotes by Kytka Hilmar-Jezek
#200. Your brand is the unique persona and identity of you, your company, product or service that sets it apart from others in the same market space. It is the image you or your business present to the world. A brand is composed of many different pieces which, together, capture the attention of your buyers. Some of the pieces are physical, but much of branding is intangible; ideas and thoughts put into words, pictures and videos. When small business owners ask themselves "What is branding?" the answer is, "the essence of the business, products or services." Your personal brand conveys the way you are perceived; and how you want people to see and feel about you, your business and your products or services. You may want to sound very dignified and reinforce your 'expert status' and credibility depending on your products or services. Or you may want to sound approachable, edgy and smart. Whatever voice you choose, carry it into all your messaging, marketing materials, and web presence (your platform). #Quote by Kytka Hilmar-Jezek
