Citáty John Davison Rockefeller

Citát „Nebojte se vzdát dobrého pro to nejlepší.“

„Způsob, jak vydělat peníze, je nakoupit, když v ulicích teče krev.“

—  John Davison Rockefeller

The way to make money is to buy when blood is running in the streets.

„I would rather hire a man with enthusiasm, than a man who knows everything.“

—  John D. Rockefeller

As quoted in Classic Wisdom for the Professional Life (2010) by Bryan Curtis, p. 75

„I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance.“

—  John D. Rockefeller

As quoted in How They Succeeded (1901) by Orison Swett Marden
Kontext: I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.

„I believe in the supreme worth of the individual and in his right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity, an obligation; every possession, a duty.

I believe that the law was made for man and not man for the law; that government is the servant of the people and not their master.

I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.

I believe that thrift is essential to well-ordered living and that economy is a prime requisite of a sound financial structure, whether in government, business or personal affairs.

I believe that truth and justice are fundamental to an enduring social order.

I believe in the sacredness of a promise, that a man's word should be as good as his bond, that character—not wealth or power or position—is of supreme worth.

I believe that the rendering of useful service is the common duty of mankind and that only in the purifying fire of sacrifice is the dross of selfishness consumed and the greatness of the human soul set free.

I believe in an all-wise and all-loving God, named by whatever name, and that the individual's highest fulfillment, greatest happiness and widest usefulness are to be found in living in harmony with His will.

I believe that love is the greatest thing in the world; that it alone can overcome hate; that right can and will triumph over might.“

—  John D. Rockefeller

„I believe the power to make money is a gift of God … to be developed and used to the best of our ability for the good of mankind.“

—  John D. Rockefeller

Interview with William Hoster, quoted in God's Gold (1932) by John T. Flynn
Kontext: I believe the power to make money is a gift of God … to be developed and used to the best of our ability for the good of mankind. Having been endowed with the gift I possess, I believe it is my duty to make money and still more money and to use the money I make for the good of my fellow man according to the dictates of my conscience.
