'It is by no means enough that an officer be capable...He should be a gentleman of liberal education, refined, manners, punctilious courtesy, and the nicest sense of personal honor... No meritorious act of a subordinate should escape his attention, even if the reward be only one word of approval. Conversely, he should not be blind to a single fault in any subordinate.'
View quotes by John Paul Jones

We as consumers will not tolerate a poor product or service, then why do we allow and in fact manage and lead a business that allows a less than tolerable product or service to exist?
View quotes by Jonathon J Salomon

If you don't sell, it's not the product that's wrong, it's you.

The ancient Romans had a tradition: whenever one of their engineers constructed an arch, as the capstone was hoisted into place, the engineer assumed accountability for his work in the most profound way possible: he stood under the arch.

Few influential people involved with the Internet claim that it is a good in and of itself. It is a powerful tool for solving social problems, just as it is a tool for making money, finding lost relatives, receiving medical advice, or, come to that, trading instructions for making bombs.
View quotes by Esther Dyson

American business long ago gave up on demanding that prospective employees be honest and hardworking. It has even stopped hoping for employees who are educated enough that they can tell the difference between the men's room and the women's room without having little pictures on the doors.

Profits, like sausages... are esteemed most by those who know least about what goes into them.

Britney's a really cool girl, We were really close back when we were on the Mickey Mouse Club, and even watching her in interviews I find myself missing her lately. I'm really proud of her, how far she's come and what she's been able to accomplish. And to keep it together: It's so crazy out on the road. I gotta give her credit for not just going berserk and letting everybody get to her. I just passed on my number to her through somebody. It's good to have friends in the business who know what you're going through.

A God without dominion, providence, and final causes, is nothing else but fate and nature.

Loneliness is the universal problem of rich people.

I have no problems with nudity. My friend Ewan and I are starkers in most of our films.
View quotes by Jude Law

If I stopped making records or performing, I'd probably still be famous for a while being me. But I'd rather have something to show for myself.

'Purple is sex personified - it's like something from Agent Provocateur with spaghetti straps and nothing like enough support' (Good Homes Magazine March 2003)
View quotes by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen

'Six months before he died, my grand-father came to Australia to try to explain to me that he was dying. I was a young kid, very much into myself at the time. I was busking on the streets just to make enough money to pay my rent, There was this Japanese restaurant I'd always wanted to eat at but couldn't afford, so I suggested we go there.' It was an unfortunate choice. In Weans' weakened condition, the smell of the rice and soya sauce brought back memories of the Second World War. 'We couldn't have the talk he wanted to,' says Crowe. 'The day he died, I was in the kitchen of a flat in Woollarah, (an eastern suburb of Sydney). 'Suddenly a kookaburra bird flew in the window. It just looked at me. I knew my grandfather had died. I phoned home and my mother confirmed it. 'I insisted the bird was my grandfather's spirit, but my mom would have nothing of it.' One day last year, Crowe had a dream in which he was holding his mother and she was crying. He phoned home immediately. 'My mother said a woman who had worked closely with my grandfather had come to visit and, without prompting, had told her that on the day my grandfather died a bird had visited her as well. 'Learning this had reduced my mother to tears.' Crowe says he believes that 'with all this talk of angels, maybe they are just birds sent to us by those who have crossed over.'

'If you represent yourself as nurturer and provider, you can create a relationship. You need to keep them healthy. You run your hands over them and make sure they don't have ticks. You check around their ears. The cows love all of this, because you're completely relaxed with them.

A proverb is one man's wit and all men's wisdom.

Sentimentality is the emotional promiscuity of those who have no sentiment.

On Sharon Stone (Quick and the Dead): 'She was instrumental about me getting my first American job. Absolutely, without her support, it would not have happened. At the same time, however, was it really about me or her wanting to flex her producerial muscles? I don't want to sound ungallant about the situation. But I didn't find that in working with her, that we clicked on any other level.'

On his own history with mathematics, and connection with John Nash: 'I had a bit of a hiccup in the third year of high school. The school I was at hired a non-English speaking Hungarian who was a professional of some great standing in Eastern Europe. But he hadn't learned the English language yet. He probably is a great asset to the teaching staff now, but we were his first class. That was when mathematics and I parted ways.

'There's a lot of mathematics in music. It's all in groups of eight, mate, y'know. The one thing that I may have in common with John is that the subject matter I do know, the driving part of my life, my work life, there's a point where structure and scaffolding is left behind and intuition takes over. That's the difference between John and the next 100 mathematicians. He's fully prepared to leave the scaffolding behind and get into the ether of the equation and find the answer quicker. The bane of his existence, however, is finding the proof.'

Britney would make a better prostitute than Christina. She's thicker.
View quotes by Snoop Dogg

That's the trouble with being me. At this point, nobody gives a damn what my problem is. I could literally have a tumor on the side of my head and they'd be like, 'Yeah, big deal. I'd eat a tumor every morning for the kinda money you're pulling down.'
View quotes by Jim Carrey

I do not promote breast jobs. But I am a believer in enhancing.

...Always be proud of yourself and understand that it's your individuality that makes you beautiful.

On Liam Gallagher: He probably knows if he said anything I'd whack him in the mouth without even blinking an eyelid.
View quotes by Sharleen Spiteri

I don't know. People always think that there has got to be a dark side to everyone, a closet with skeletons, demons under the bed. People think all kinds of things about one another. They feel compelled to make up fears and false assumptions about their closest friends. Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.
View quotes by Tom Hanks

I've always wanted to be a spy, and frankly I'm a little surprised that British intelligence has never approached me.
View quotes by Liz Hurley

With every project you do, you bring out a part of yourself, and it seems to be quite a good way of expanding a person.
