Greed Quotes A-Z by Author Greed Quotes A-Z by Author

A pin lies in wait for every bubble. And when the two eventually meet, a new wave of investors learns some very old lessons: First, many in Wall Street (a community in which quality control is not prized) will sell investors anything they will buy. Second, speculation is most dangerous when it looks easiest
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Bubble - Bust - Investing - Knowledge - Wall Street - Greedy - Speculation

We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.

Warren Buffett
- Investing - Fear

They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.
George Carlin - America - Stupid - Big Business - Control - Politicians - Media - Congress - News - Lobby - Billions - Greed

You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your f**kin' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street.
George Carlin - Big Business - Stupid - Society - Control - Greed - Dumb - Employee - Jobs - Retirement - Wage - Wall Street

They’ll get it all from you sooner or later 'cause they own this f**kin' place. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good, honest, hard-working people: white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on.
George Carlin - Media - Greed - Media - Belief - Thinking - Working Class - Middle Class

They don’t care about you at all! At all! At all! And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes every day, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
George Carlin - America - Dream - Big Business - Greed - Care - Ignorant - Truth

This war has been motivated by pride or arrogance, by a desire to control oil wealth, by a desire to implant our programs. (talking about the Iraq war)
Jimmy Carter - War
- Greed - Power

If the firms that employ an increasing majority of the population are driven solely to satisfy the owner's greed at the expense of working conditions, of the stability of the community, and of the health of the environment, chances are that the quality of our lives will be worse than it is now.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Environment

The number-one job of the hedge-fund manager is not to make sure that you can retire with a smile on your face.. it's for him to retire with a smile on his face.
Mark Cuban - Rich - Selfish - Greed - Retire

The man who has won millions at the cost of his conscience is a failure.
BC Forbes - Rich - Failure - Greed

My major problem with the world is a problem of scarcity in the midst of plenty ... of people starving while there are unused resources ... people having skills which are not being used.
Milton Friedman - Poverty - Greed

If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy. If you are disorganized, your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, your empoyees will be greedy, giving you less and less of themselves and always asking for more.
Michael Gerber - Business - Thinking -
Employee - Greed

Most of the time common stocks are subject to irrational and excessive price fluctuations in both directions as the consequence of the ingrained tendency of most people to speculate or gamble... to give way to hope, fear and greed.
Benjamin Graham - Stock Market - Investing - Greed - Fear

If you think of life as like a big pie, you can try to hold the whole pie and kill yourself trying to keep it, or you can slice it up and give some to the people around you, and you still have plenty left for yourself.
Jay Leno - Greed - Life - Philanthropy

I think one of the most misunderstood things about business in America is that people are either doing things for altruistic reasons or they are greedy and selfish, just after profit. That type of dichotomy portrays a false image of business. It certainly is a false image of Whole Foods. The whole idea is to do both: The animals have to flourish, but in such a way that it'll be cheap enough for the customers to buy it.
John Mackey - Customers - Business
- Business Ethics - American - Greed - Profits

The nature of any human being, certainly anyone on Wall Street, is 'the better deal you give the customer, the worse deal it is for you'.
Bernard Madoff - Wall Street -
Customers - Greed - Deals - Human Being

You had a lot of novice investors who got into the market looking for easy money, without any regard to the fundamentals. These stocks were running on fumes. (Madoff talking about the Internet bubble)
Bernard Madoff - Investing - Greed - Stocks - Money - Risk - Bull Market


Landlords, like all other men, love to reap where they never sowed.
Karl Marx - Real Estate - Laziness - Landlord - Greed

I don't mind paying people more for something if we're getting more. But just to change a deal because you're greedy and you want more? No. I'm not gonna go along with that.
Vince McMahon - Work - Greed -

Money is neither my god nor my devil. It is a form of energy that tends to make us more of who we already are, whether it's greedy or loving.
Dan Millman - Money - Greed - God

One of the most ironic things about capitalism is that the capitalist will sell you the rope to hang himself with. Actually they will give you the money to make a movie that makes them look bad, if they believe they can make money off it.
Michael Moore - Capitalism - Greed - Profits - Money


The motivation for war is simple. The U.S. government started the war with Iraq in order to make it easy for U.S. corporations to do business in other countries. They intend to use cheap labor in those countries, which will make Americans rich.
Michael Moore - Greed - America - War - Business - Rich - Government


My take on the whole dot-com bubble was that a lot of people who wanted to make a lot of money got too excited and hyped up the commercial aspects of the Internet prematurely. I think the vision of the Internet as a democratizing medium.. as everyone's printing press.. is real. We got distracted from that by the mass hallucinations of the bubble.
Craig Newmark - Greed - Internet - Money - Media

We've poured our poisons into the world as though it were a bottomless pit.. and we go on gobbling them up. It's hard to imagine how the world could survive another century of this abuse, but nobody's really doing anything about it. It's a problem our children will have to solve, or their children.
Daniel Quinn - Nature
- World - Insanity - Greed - Problems - Environmental - Responsibility

It is not the man who has little, but he who desires more, that is poor.
Seneca - Poverty - Desire

Sam Walton - Wage - Greed - Success - Employee

Meg Whitman - Economy -
Growth - Environmental - Greed - Opportunity
