is about culture.
Ambani # Advertising,
- My view
is to give everyone the space to grow in his own way. When
you see restructuring or separations in a family [firm], value
has almost always been destroyed. This is the first case where
value has been enhanced. In that way it has been a win-win
Ambani # Problems,
I see a billion people as a billion potential consumers, an
opportunity to generate value for them and to make a return
Ambani # Customers,

Ballmer # Value,
- Our determination

Blair # Determined,
- You tell
the people the stories the best you know. If there is something
you don't know, you be up front and make that clear. You always
give the aggrieved party the chance to respond before you
publish or go to air. That's just my kind of old-fashioned

shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the
mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Buddha # Thinking,
- Can you
really explain to a fish what it's like to walk on land? One
day on land is worth a thousand years of talking about it,
and one day running a business has exactly the same kind of
Buffett # Business,

believe we're on the path of building what may be the most
valuable company and most respected company in the world someday,

at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves
this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it
does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use.
Castaneda # Questions,
- We value
the clock for its speed and efficiency. The clock has its
place, efficiency has its place, after effectiveness. The
symbol of effectiveness is the compass a sense of direction,
purpose, vision, perspective, and balance. But the empowerment
process itself is not efficient.
Covey # Value,
- I don't
talk much about ethics and values because to me those words
imply situational behaviors, subjective beliefs, social mores,
cultural norms, or relative truths. I prefer to talk about
universal principles and natural laws that are more absolute.
Covey # Ethics,
I come to work each day, whether as a commentator for TheStreet.com
or a host of Mad Money With Jim Cramer, I have only one thought
in mind: helping people with their money.
Cramer # Work,
- To build
an enterprise that will endure, one must believe in the value
of one's work.

Diana # Positive,
our strengths, articulating our values, knowing where we belong

run into problems where governments don't share those values.
Long term, these values will win out.

forces itself upon one that men measure by false standards,
that everyone seeks power, success, riches for himself, and
admires others who attain them, while undervaluing the truly
precious thing in life.
Freud # Power,
- The value
of having everybody get the complete picture and trusting
each person with it far outweighs the risk involved.
Gates # Trust,
- The premise
of this foundation is one life on this planet is no more valuable
than the next.
Gates # Concept,

have in our culture a healthy understanding and respect for
the value of Being, which is simply being present in the moment,

but, just present.

change. The sum total of those changes is transformation.
Grove # Company,
- I think
is the preeminent pioneer in building a new way of doing commerce:
personalized, database-driven commerce, where the big value
is not in the purchase fulfillment, but in knowing as much
about a customer base of ten or twenty million people as a
corner store used to know about a customer base of a few hundred.
Grove # Brands,
- One of
the things I've tried to do with my life is redefine the boundaries
that I think are very limiting. I'm not suggesting that everybody
should have three girlfriends, or necessarily have girlfriends
living with them. I think there are many, many options to
living your life.

my whole life and lived my life in a certain way to make sure
that I would never violate any law.. certainly never any criminal
laws.. and always maintained that most important to me was
my integrity, was my character, were my values.
Lay # Life,
- Any people
anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right
to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form
a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable
- a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe,
is to liberate the world.
Lincoln # Power,
- You can`t
control people. You must understand them. You have to know
where they`re coming from, their beliefs and values, what
turns them off, what they`re against.
Lukashenko # Society,
we talk about values, I think of rationality in solving problems.
That's something I value. Fairness, kindness, generosity,
tolerance. When they talk about values, they're talking about
things like going to church, voting for Bush, being loyal
to Jesus, praying. These are not values.

you can prove your value inside the enterprise.
Martin # Company,
though most senior executives and managers feel they are more
valued today than a few years ago by the people they work
for, that value still can be increased.
Martin # Management,
- I think
I at the time wasn't very happy about it, but actually it
made me a stronger person, you find out things about yourself
that maybe you hadn't realised, or I think you can get quite
consumed by a relationship when you are younger and I really
valued that time for me as well although I didn't think it
at the time. Looking back on it.

enhances power. Humility and grace in one's moments of power
enhances dignity of an organisation.
Murthy # Customers,

may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be
new. But those values upon which our success depends - hard
work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity,
loyalty and patriotism - these things are old.
Obama # Challenging,
of us value things more than we value money, which is why
most of us have more things in our closets and cupboards than
we do money in our bank accounts.
Orman # Money,
- It is
a mistake to apply American democratic procedures to the faith
and the truth. You cannot take a vote on the truth. The value
of democracy stands or falls with the values which it embodies
John Paul II # Mistakes,
- The goods
of this world are originally meant for all. The right to private
property is valid and necessary, but it does not nullify the
value of this principle. Private property, in fact, is under
a social mortgage.
John Paul II # Nation,
- We Christians
joyfully recognize the religious values we have in common
with Islam. I would like to repeat what I said to young Muslims

and brings his creatures to their perfection.'

Ricardo # Economic,
- If the
quantity of labour realized in commodities, regulate their
exchangeable value, every increase of the quantity of labour
must augment the value of that commodity on which it is exercised,
as every diminution must lower it.

for me became the method by which we could introduce values
into a non-value industry.
Roddick # Products,

Roddick # Change,

value a product in a shop, but we do not understand how it
creates people's livelihoods and how it keeps communities
together- how it educates, sets up futures and provides rural
relief and economic advancement.
Roddick # Value,
- I am
a socialist and at the same time clear about a certain number
of values ... family values, environmental values, the value
of succeeding at school, the value of merit and respect for
work. To me these are not incompatible with being of the left.

years from now, I expect the Tatas to be much bigger than
it is now. More importantly, I hope the Group comes to be
regarded as being the best in India.. best in the manner in
which we operate, best in the products we deliver, and best
in our value systems and ethics. Having said that, I hope
that a hundred years from now we will spread our wings far
