John D. Rockefeller
I can think of nothing less pleasurable than a life devoted to pleasure.
We can never learn too much of His will towards us, too much of His messages and His advice. The Bible is His word and its study gives at once the foundation for our faith and an inspiration to battle onward in the fight against the tempter.
I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity, an obligation; every possession, a duty.
Do you know the only thing that gives me pleasure? It’s to see my dividends coming in.
Giving should be entered into in just the same way as investing. Giving is investing.
After it is all over, the religion of man is his most important possession.
I know of nothing more despicable and pathetic than a man who devotes all the hours of the waking day to the making of money for money’s sake.
I always tried to turn every disaster into an opportunity.
Competition is a sin.
And we are never too old to study the Bible. Each time the lessons are studied comes some new meaning, some new thought which will make us better.
It is wrong to assume that men of immense wealth are always happy.
I believe that thrift is essential to well-ordered living.
Don’t blame the marketing department. The buck stops with the chief executive.
I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people’s efforts than 100% of my own efforts.
A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.
