Thursday #5

The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.

The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.

The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success.

The enemy of the truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth-persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.

The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.

The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.

The fastest way to change yourself is to hang out with people who are already the way you want to be.

The first one gets the oyster; the second gets the shell.

The golden rule for every business man is this: “Put yourself in your customer’s place.”
