“No place epitomizes the American experience and the American spirit more than New York City.”
Michael Bloomberg

“Did I want to risk an embarrassing and costly failure? Absolutely. Happiness for me has always been the thrill of the unknown, trying something that everyone says can't be done, feeling that gnawing pit in my stomach that says "Danger ahead". Would it be nice not to have uncertainty, to sit back and "veg out"? When the phone rings constantly, when people keep demanding attention, when I desperately need time to myself, it seems an attractive notion just to "chuck it all". But then nobody calls, nobody stops by, and soon I'm nibbling my nails and getting irritable, and I realize that's not what I want. It sounds good. In reality though, I want action, I want challenge.”
Michael R. Bloomberg, Bloomberg by Bloomberg

“And, as I would learn later on in my life - at Salomon Brothers and in my own company - it's the "doers", the lean and hungry ones, those with ambition in their eyes and fire in their bellies and no notions of social caste, who go the furthest and achieve the most.”
Michael R. Bloomberg, Bloomberg by Bloomberg
