Business Ideas Quotes A-Z by Author Business Ideas Quotes A-Z by Author

You are surrounded by simple, obvious solutions that can dramatically increase your income, power, influence and success. The problem is, you just don't see them.
Jay Abraham - Success - Solutions
- Ideas

An amazing thing, the human brain. Capable of understanding incredibly complex and intricate concepts. Yet at times unable to recognize the obvious and simple.
Jay Abraham - Knowledge - Ideas


Working in the context of ultra-famous brands like Dior and Vuitton, creative spirits are always going to feel reined in. It's important that they are free to develop ideas. And rather than detracting from the principal job, it reinforces it. I think of that money as venture capital. It's not a big investment.
Bernard Arnault - Creativity - Brand - Leadership - Freedom - Luxury - Research
- Ideas

This is an age of mass production. In the mass production of materials a broad technique has been developed and applied to their distribution. In this age, too, there must be a technique for the mass distribution of ideas.
Edward Bernays - Propaganda - Manufacturing - Manipulation - Ideas - Masses

We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
Edward Bernays - America - Manipulation - Ideas - Democracy - Social - People

Just as women supplement men in private life, so they will supplement men in public life by concentrating their organized efforts on those objects which men are likely to ignore. There is a tremendous field for women as active protagonists of new ideas and new methods of political and social housekeeping. When organized and conscious of their power to influence their surroundings, women can use their newly acquired freedom in a great many ways to mold the world into a better place to live in.
Edward Bernays - Women - Men - Ideas - Influence - Freedom - Manipulation

No serious sociologist any longer believes that the voice of the people expresses any divine or specially wise and lofty idea. The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who understand the manipulation of public opinion. It is composed of inherited prejudices and symbols and clichés and verbal formulas supplied to them by the leaders.
Edward Bernays - Propaganda - Sociology - People - Ideas - Opinions - Manipulation - Prejudice

They govern us by their qualities of natural leadership, their ability to supply needed ideas and by their key position in the social structure. Whatever attitude one chooses to take toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons.. a trifling fraction of our hundred and twenty million.. who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world.
Edward Bernays - Government - Leaders - Social - Ideas - Business - Manipulation - Control - Mind

It is once your ideas have been transformed into enough money, and if all failed, you would still live your lifestyle, and you understand that just because you have made more money than most, you are not better than the common person. We are all going to die broke. (Blixseth's definition of success)
Tim Blixseth - Success - Ideas - Money - Death - Life - Wealth


Many great ideas go unexecuted, and many great executioners are without ideas. One without the other is worthless.
Tim Blixseth - Ideas -
Great - Action

I think if you look at people, whether in business or government, who haven't had any moral compass, who've just changed to say whatever they thought the popular thing was, in the end they're losers.
Michael Bloomberg - Change - Politicians - Business - Truth

Taxes are not good things, but if you want services, somebody's got to pay for them so they're a necessary evil.
Michael Bloomberg - Business - Taxes - Responsibility

America is an idea, but it's an idea that brings with it some baggage, like power brings responsibility. It's an idea that brings with it equality, but equality even though it's the highest calling, is the hardest to reach. The idea that anything is possible, that's one of the reasons why I'm a fan of America. It's like hey, look there's the moon up there, let's take a walk on it, bring back a piece of it. That's the kind of America that I'm a fan of.
Bono -
Action - America - Ideas - Responsible - Power - Encouragement

I find it impossible to stop my brain from churning through all the ideas and possibilities facing me at any given moment.
Richard Branson - Brain - Ideas - Possibilities

There is no substitute for knowledge. To this day, I read three newspapers a day. It is impossible to read a paper without being exposed to ideas. And ideas.. more than money.. are the real currency for success.
Eli Broad - Money - Success - Knowledge - Newspapers - Reading - Ideas

There's no way to put a limit on what one may accomplish individually if the intent is an impeccable intent. Don Juan's teachings are not spiritual. I repeat this because the question has come to the surface over and over. The idea of spirituality doesn't fit with the iron discipline of a warrior. The most important thing for a shaman like don Juan is the idea of pragmatism.
Carlos Castaneda - Warrior - Spiritual - Accomplishments - Intent
- Teaching - Questions - Discipline - Ideas

What's wonderful about Google is that as long as you bring ideas to the table, it doesn't matter what else is going on.
Vinton Cerf - Ideas


We must reject the idea.. well-intentioned, but dead wrong.. that the primary path to greatness in the social sectors is to become "more like a business." Most businesses.. like most of anything else in life.. fall somewhere between mediocre and good.
Jim Collins - Society - Business - Wrong - Ideas - Great - Good

Studies have shown that 90% of error in thinking is due to error in perception. If you can change your perception, you can change your emotion and this can lead to new ideas.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Optimistic - Mistakes - Emotion - Ideas

I think school is a place where thinking should be taught.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Ideas - School - Teaching

Traditional thinking is all about "what is" Future thinking will also need to be about what can be.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Ideas

Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists.
Edward de Bono - Problems - Solutions - Ideas - Change

In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm.. in the real world all rests on perseverance.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - Ideas - Commitment - Ambition

I am absolutely convinced that no wealth in the world can help humanity forward, even in the hands of the most devoted worker in this cause. The example of great and pure characters is the only thing that can produce fine ideas and noble deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and always tempts its owners irresistibly to abuse it
Albert Einstein - Wealth - Money - Ideas - Selfish

I think that only daring speculation can lead us further and not accumulation of facts.
Albert Einstein - Inspirational - Ideas - Knowledge - Risk

There's no good idea that can't be improved on.
Michael Eisner - Ideas

Religion has caused more harm than any other idea since the beginning of time. There's nothing good I can say about it. People use it as a crutch.
Larry Flynt - Religion - Ideas - Faith

If I think something's a waste of time or inappropriate I don't wait to point it out. I say it right away. It's real time. So you might hear me say 'That's the dumbest idea I have ever heard' many times during a meeting.
Bill Gates - Leadership - Opinions - Dumb - Ideas - Meeting

If I'd had some set idea of a finish line, don't you think I would have crossed it years ago?
Bill Gates - Ideas - Inspirational - Goals

You have an idea of the way you think it is, and it's not that way at all, it's something else.
David Geffen - Ideas - Deception

The artist may be well advised to keep his work to himself till it is completed, because no one can readily help him or advise him with it.. but the scientist is wiser not to withhold a single finding or a single conjecture from publicity.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - Ideas - Science - Help

Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.
Stephen Hawking - Human Race - Possible - Communication - Ideas - Achievement - Failures - Hope
- Technology - Talk

I feel I'm able to serve my customer by knowing what she or he wants. One of the ways I'm able to do this is through my website, and email: people give me great ideas, tell me what they want, what they don't want. It's really instrumental, and helps me stay in touch with people.
Kathy Ireland - Customers - Knowledge - Internet - Ideas - Help

To turn really interesting ideas and fledgling technologies into a company that can continue to innovate for years, it requires a lot of disciplines.

Steve Jobs - Skill - Technology - Innovation

Research your idea. See if there's a demand. A lot of people have great ideas, but they don't know if there's a need for it. You also have to research your competition.
Magic Johnson - Competitive - Research
- Ideas - Demand - Great

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
Helen Keller - Happiness
- Philanthropy - Ideas

A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.
John F. Kennedy - Ideas
- Death

My job is to listen to ideas, maybe cook up a few of my own, and make decisions based on what's good for the shareholders and for the company.
Philip Knight - Jobs - Decisions - Business Ideas - Companies

The meaning of life is that it is to be lived, and it is not to be traded and conceptualized and squeezed into a pattern of systems.
Bruce Lee - Life - Ideas - Encouragement

I think my idea of retirement might be to one day work a 40-hour week.
Vince McMahon - Ideas - Work

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.
H. L. Mencken - Danger - Government -
Ideas - Thinking - Insane - Dishonest - Discontent

The way to deal with superstition is not to be polite to it, but to tackle it with all arms, and so rout it, cripple it, and make it forever infamous and ridiculous. Is it, perchance, cherished by persons who should know better? Then their folly should be brought out into the light of day, and exhibited there in all its hideousness until they flee from it, hiding their heads in shame.
H. L. Mencken - Criticism - Stupid - Ideas

The most curious social convention of the great age in which we live is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected. Its evil effects must be plain enough to everyone. All it accomplishes is (a) to throw a veil of sanctity about ideas that violate every intellectual decency, and (b) to make every theologian a sort of chartered libertine. No doubt it is mainly to blame for the appalling slowness with which really sound notions make their way in the world.
H. L. Mencken - Evil - Religion - Ideas - Opinions


I don't believe you are simply born with the ambition of becoming chancellor. But if you want to make a difference, if you enjoy putting ideas into practice, then the post of chancellor has to be the one presenting the biggest opportunity of all.
Angela Merkel - Change - Politicians - Ambition - Ideas - Enjoyment
- Opportunity

We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
Charlie Munger - Learning - Ideas
- Change

News.. communicating news and ideas, I guess.. is my passion. And giving people alternatives so that they have two papers to read and alternative television channels.
Rupert Murdoch - Media - Ideas - Passion

When the idea came up, (Newman's Own) I said, "Are you crazy? Stick my face on the label of salad dressing?" And then, of course, we got the whole idea of exploitation and how circular it is. Why not, really, go to the fullest length, and the silliest length, in exploiting yourself and turn the proceeds back to the community?
Paul Newman - Business -
Ideas - Branding - Philanthropy

I had one simple idea about telling friends about arts and technology events. People in the community suggested everything else to us, and that's our theme. We're really run by the people who use the site. We just run the infrastructure, and help out with problems.
Craig Newmark - Technology - People - Ideas - Friends
- Help - Problems - Internet

So far no one had had enough courage and intelligence to reveal me to my dear Germans. My problems are new, my psychological horizon frighteningly comprehensive, my language bold and clear; there may well be no books written in German which are richer in ideas and more independent than mine.
Friedrich Nietzsche - Intelligence - Germany - Courage - Psychology - Books - Ideas - Language - Brave


That is the true genius of America, a faith in the simple dreams of its people, the insistence on small miracles. That we can say what we think, write what we think, without hearing a sudden knock on the door. That we can have an idea and start our own business without paying a bribe or hearing a sudden knock on the door. That we can participate in the political process without fear of retribution, and that our votes will be counted-or at least, most of the time.
Barack Obama - America - Politicians - Dreams - Fear - Miracles - Thinking - Ideas - Hope
- Business

You don't need to have a 100-person company to develop that idea.
Larry Page - Companies - Ideas

We’ve got all these politicians talking about better health care and what all, but believe me, we’re not going to have the money to take care of sick people.. or anyone else as far as I’m concerned.. if we don’t fix our energy problem right now. I’ve got an idea what to do. It might not be a perfect idea, but hell, none of my best ideas have been perfect.
T. Boone Pickens - Politicians - Health - Money - Energy - Oil - Problems - Ideas - Perfect

Nobody talks of entrepreneurship as survival, but that's exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking.
Anita Roddick - Entrepreneurs - Ideas

I am aware that success is more than a good idea. It is timing too.
Anita Roddick - Ideas - Success - Time

The main difference between me and other people who have amassed this kind of money is that I am primarily interested in ideas, and I don't have much personal use for money.
George Soros - Money - Ideas

I'm not a sponge exactly, but I find that something I look at is a great opportunity for ideas.
Martha Stewart - Business Ideas - Opportunity

The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter.. for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes.
Nikola Tesla - Science - Research -
Ideas - Hope - Hard Work

A major stimulant to creative thinking is focused questions. There is something about a well-worded question that often penetrates to the heart of the matter and triggers new ideas and insights.
Brian Tracy - Questions - Thinking - Ideas


Most everything I’ve done I’ve copied from somebody else.
Sam Walton - Opportunity - Ideas

Great ideas come from everywhere if you just listen and look for them. You never know who’s going to have a great idea.
Sam Walton - Great - Ideas - Listening - Motivational

I’d still say that visiting the stores and listening to our folks was one of the most valuable uses of my time as an executive. But really, our best ideas usually do come from the folks in the stores. Period.
Sam Walton - Ideas - Listening - Retail - Opportunities

At home we have always regarded the dining table as the prime seat of learning. We planned it so it was impossible to see or hear a TV from the table, and it has paid dividends in the volume of ideas that have been shared over the evening meal.
Noel Whittaker - Family - Planning - Learning - Ideas

There aren't that many original ideas out there.
Steve Wynn - Ideas
