Under capitalism every business wants to cater to the masses, for that is where the money is." - Thomas DiLorenzo

Old-fashioned hospitality, old-fashioned politeness, old-fashioned honor in business had qualities of survival. These will come back." - Eddie Rickenbacker

"Education is a matter of the spirit. No wiser word has been said on the subject, and yet we persist in applying education from without.

Our business is to give him mind stuff. Both quantity and quality are essential." - Charlotte Mason

"The great multinationals are unwilling to face the moral and economic contradictions of their own behavior - producing in low-wage dictatorships and selling to high-wage democracies.

"I think unfortunately in this gold rush mentality that we've been in for the last years there has been not enough focus on business model quality.

"There is no advantage getting older. You don't get smarter, you don't get wiser, you don't get more mellow, you don't get more kindly, nothing good happens.
