Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don't have for something they don't need. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>I hire people brighter than me and then I get out of their way. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.

Instead, you have to inspire the next guy down the line and get him to inspire his people. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes shine to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  16. 17. <ul><li>Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them. If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>And the thing about my jokes is, they don't hurt anybody. You can take 'em or leave 'em - you can say they're funny or they're terrible or they're good, or whatever, but you can just pass 'em by. But with Congress, every time they make a joke, it's a law!

  18. 19. <ul><li>Only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>One of the things the government can't do is run anything. The only things our government runs are the post office and the railroads, and both of them are bankrupt.

  21. 22. <ul><li>Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Chaotic action is preferable to orderly inaction. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>Start with good people, lay out the rules, communicate with your employees, motivate them and reward them. If you do all those things effectively, you can't miss. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn't need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  22. 23. <ul><li>Risk is a part of God's game, alike for men and nations. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Communism to me is one-third practice and two-thirds explanation. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>Talk to people in their own language. If you do it well, they'll say, 'God, he said exactly what I was thinking.'

Henry Ford </li></ul>
  23. 24. <ul><li>Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Democrats never agree on anything, that's why they're Democrats. If they agreed with each other, they would be Republicans. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The ability to concentrate and to use time well is everything. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>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. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  24. 25. <ul><li>Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Diplomacy is the art of saying &quot;Nice doggie&quot; until you can find a rock. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The affections are like lightning: you cannot tell where they will strike till they have fallen. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  25. 26. <ul><li>The business schools reward difficult complex behavior more than simple behavior, but simple behavior is more effective. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Diplomats are just as essential to starting a war as soldiers are for finishing it... You take diplomacy out of war, and the thing would fall flat in a week. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The discipline of writing something down is the first step toward making it happen. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. Henry Ford </li></ul>

Henry Ford </li></ul>
  27. 28. <ul><li>The smarter the journalists are, the better off society is. For to a degree, people read the press to inform themselves-and the better the teacher, the better the student body. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Don't gamble; take all your savings and buy some good stock and hold it till it goes up, then sell it. If it don't go up, don't buy it. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The kind of people I look for to fill top management spots are the eager beavers, the mavericks. These are the guys who try to do more than they're expected to do - they always reach. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  28. 29. <ul><li>There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Don't let yesterday use up too much of today. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The most successful businessman is the man who holds onto the old just as long as it is good, and grabs the new just as soon as it is better. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  29. 30. <ul><li>Time is the friend of the wonderful company, the enemy of the mediocre. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The one word that makes a good manager - decisiveness. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  30. 31. <ul><li>We believe that according the name 'investors' to institutions that trade actively is like calling someone who repeatedly engages in one-night stands a 'romantic.' Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  31. 32. <ul><li>We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Everything is funny as long as it is happening to someone else. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>Money is like an arm or leg - use it or lose it. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  32. 33. <ul><li>When a management team with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Get someone else to blow your horn and the sound will carry twice as far. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>The trick is to make sure you don't die waiting for prosperity to come. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  33. 34. <ul><li>Why not invest your assets in the companies you really like? As Mae West said, &quot;Too much of a good thing can be wonderful&quot;. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>There are times when even the best manager is like the little boy with the big dog, waiting to see where the dog wants to go so he can take him there. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  34. 35. <ul><li>Wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>I bet after seeing us, George Washington would sue us for calling him &quot;father.&quot; Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>There is no substitute for accurate knowledge. Know yourself, know your business, know your men. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  35. 36. <ul><li>You do things when the opportunities come along. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I'll do something. If not, I won't do a damn thing. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>I don't know jokes; I just watch the government and report the facts. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>Trouble shared is trouble halved. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  36. 37. <ul><li>You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don't do too many things wrong. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>I guess there is nothing that will get your mind off everything like golf. I have never been depressed enough to take up the game, but they say you get so sore at yourself you forget to hate your enemies. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  37. 38. <ul><li>Your premium brand had better be delivering something special, or it's not going to get the business. Warren Buffett </li></ul><ul><li>I have a scheme for stopping war. It's this - no nation is allowed to enter a war till they have paid for the last one. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>We at Chrysler borrow money the old fashion way. We pay it back. Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>Quality means doing it right when no one is looking. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  38. 39. <ul><li>A manager is responsible for the application and performance of knowledge. Peter Drucker </li></ul><ul><li>I never expected to see the day when girls would get sunburned in the places they now do. Will Rogers </li></ul><ul><li>We've got to pause and ask ourselves: How much clean air do we need? Lee Iacocca </li></ul><ul><li>Speculation is only a word covering the making of money out of the manipulation of prices, instead of supplying goods and services. Henry Ford </li></ul>
  39. 40. <ul><li>Accept the fact that we have to treat almost anybody as a volunteer. Peter Drucker </li></ul><ul><li>I read about eight newspapers in a day.
