Maxims of Life and Business

This book is pretty much an enjoyable read. It's outlay is wonderfully simple. It's a collection of "sayings" and thoughts as presented by John Wanamaker. I'll just quote a few of these 'sayings'.

"Time is money, with a big IS."
"No one ever did anything worth while in this world, that he was not criticized by somebody."
"Progress is the result of self-development."
"Competition will pound us hard, but let us see who can pound hardest."
"The worst kind of lying is making promises that you cannot fulfil."
"A man is not doing much until the cause he works for possesses all there is of him."
"The more we give happiness, the more we have left."
"The greatest need of this present day world is more smilers, singers, patient, good-natured, strong-minded men and women. Teachers, train the children so to be."
"Few of us understand each other. Little some people know how dependent we are on something outside of ourselves. Often a single word or look would have changed an entire day. So many of us stand before each other only as closed books-contents unknown."

Happy reading
