Friday Night Quotes, July 28, Profit ….

by Larry Oxenham, Publisher …

Profit is the motive for the startup of any viable business anywhere in the world; after all, without profit no business can last. But Profit is sometimes denigrated here in the US so we thought it might be interesting to hear a variety of perspectives on –
“Business is all about solving people’s problems – at a profit.” Paul Marsden
“Economic power is exercised by means of a positive, by offering men a reward, an incentive, a payment, a value; political power is exercised by means of a negative, by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction. The businessman’s tool is values; the bureaucrat’s tool is fear.” Ayn Rand
“A system is corrupt when it is strictly profit-driven, not driven to serve the best interests of its people.” Suzy Kassem
“The elimination of profit, whatever methods may be resorted to for its execution, must transform society into a senseless jumble.” Ludwig von Mises
“Making a product is just an activity, making a profit on a product is the achievement.” Amit Kalantri
“Good deeds are only done when there’s a profit margin.” Prince Ea
“A lie is more profitable than the truth. That is why we have elections.” Psyche Roxas-Mendosa
“Endure the pain in the sunrise, so when it’s sunset, there’s lot of profit to be gained.” Seyi Ayoola
“Business is about profit, yes – and it is about more than profit: at its best, it is about expanding the possibilities of humanity.” Jon Miller
“Watch the costs and the profits will take care of themselves.” Andrew Carnegie
Pretty heady stuff!
