Henry Ford
“The one aim of these financiers is world control by the creation of inextinguishable debt.”
Henry Ford

William Hazlitt
“A man's life is his whole life, not the last glimmering snuff of the candle; and this, I say, is considerable, and not a little matter, whether we regard its pleasures or its pains. To draw a peevish conclusion to the contrary from our own superannuated desires or forgetful indifference is about as reasonable as to say, a man never was young because he has grown old, or never lived because he is now dead. The length or agreeableness of a journey does not depend on the few last steps of it, nor is the size of a building to be judged of from the last stone that is added to it. It is neither the first nor last hour of our existence, but the space that parts these two - not our exit nor our entrance upon the stage, but what we do, feel, and think while there - that we are to attend to in pronouncing sentence upon it.”
William Hazlitt, Table-Talk, Essays on Men and Manners

Brian Tracy
“The highest paid Americans read an average of two to three hours per day. The lowest paid Americans don't read at all...

...58% of adults never read another book after they leave high school—including 42% of university graduates...

...43.6% of American adults read below the 7th grade level... they are functionally illiterate... fully 50% of high school graduates cannot read their graduation diplomas, nor fill out an application form for a job at McDonald’s...”
Brian Tracy, The Luck Factor

“The risk-bearing role of the rich cannot be performed so well by anyone else. The benefits of capitalism still depend on capitalists. The other groups on the pyramid of wealth should occasionally turn from the spectacles of consumption long enough to see the adventure on the frontiers of the economy above them - an adventure not without its note of nobility...”
George Gilder, Wealth and Poverty

W.E.B. Du Bois
“The worker must work for the glory of his handiwork, not simply for pay; the thinker must think for truth, not for fame.”
W.E.B. Du Bois
