Say, what do I care about Napoleon? What do we care what they did 500 or 1,000 years ago? I don't know whether Napoleon did or did not try to get across there and I don't care. It means nothing to me. History is more or less bunk. It's tradition. We don't want traditoin. We want to live in the present and the only history that is worth a tinker's dam is the history we make today.
  That's the trouble with the world. We're living in books and history and tradition. We want to get away from that and take care of today. We've done too much looking back. What we want to do and do it quick is to make just history right now.
      - in the "Chicago Tribune", May 25, 1916, p. 10
        [History]

Speculation is only a word covering the making of money out of the manipulation of prices, instead of supplying goods and services.

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.
      - [Competition]

The highest use of capital is not to make more money, but to make money do more for the betterment of life.
      - [Money]

There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.
      - [Happiness]

Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.
      - [Thinking]

Time and money spent in helping men do more for themselves is far better than mere giving.
      - [Help]

What we call evil is simply ignorance bumping its head in the dark.
      - in the London "Observer" [Evil]

Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you're right.
      - [Ability]

Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right.
      - [Thought]

You don't build a reputation on what you're going to do.
      - [Reputation]
