Bill Gates – The economy of the future

Share this quote:
Bill GatesI’ve heard some people describe the economy of the future as ‘post-corporatist and post-capitalist’–one in which large corporations crumble and all innovation happens from the bottom up. What nonsense. People who say things like that never have a convincing explanation for who will make drugs or low-cost carbon-free energy. Catalytic philanthropy doesn’t replace businesses. It helps more of their innovations benefit the poor.

Dwight Eisenhower – Humanity on a cross of iron

Share this quote:
Dwight EisenhowerEvery gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.

Dwight Eisenhower   (1890-1969)

Aristotle – Friends be the only refuge

Share this quote:
AristotleIn poverty and other misfortunes of life men think friends to be their only refuge. The young they keep out of mischief, to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds.

Aristotle   (384 BC-322 BC)
