Influential Quotes A-Z by Author Influential Quotes A-Z by Author

Understand that you need to sell you and your ideas in order to advance your career, gain more respect, and increase your success, influence and income.
Jay Abraham - Marketing - Success
- Selling

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

If people want to change, they will. If they don't want to, it's hard to make them do so. The current interest in the environment is a good thing. The best way to make a contribution in fashion is to promote the idea that a fundamental interest in preserving the environment is itself fashionable.
Giorgio Armani - Fashion - Change - Environment - Influence

It is a fact that, in the West, we live in a capitalist society, but that does not mean that we cannot be guided by the idea of a social conscience in our work. Yes, fashion design requires consumers to consume, but we can do our bit for society by running our companies in a socially responsible way, and by creating products that promote respect for social and environmental issues. There is also the possibility for power and influence to be a force for change.
Giorgio Armani - Design - Fashion - Environment - Influence - Consumer - Capitalism - Society - Companies - Responsibility - Products - Change - Respect

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

The minority has discovered a powerful help in influencing majorities. It has been found possible so to mold the mind of the masses that they will throw their newly gained strength in the desired direction. In the present structure of society, this practice is inevitable. Whatever of social importance is done today, whether in politics, finance, manufacture, agriculture, charity, education, or other fields, must be done with the help of propaganda. Propaganda is the executive arm of the invisible government.
Edward Bernays - Propaganda - Manipulation - Social - Government - Influential - Power - Masses

There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.
Edward Bernays - Ruler - Control - Influence - Dictate

If you can influence the leaders, either with or without their conscious cooperation, you automatically influence the group which they sway. But men do not need to be actually gathered together in a public meeting or in a street riot, to be subject to the influences of mass psychology. Because man is by nature gregarious he feels himself to be member of a herd, even when he is alone in his room with the curtains drawn.
Edward Bernays - Masses - Influence - Leaders - Psychology

The Israelis have a lot of influence with Congress, and in some cases they are able to buy influence.
Zbigniew Brzezinski - America - Geopolitics - Politics - Israel - Foreign Policy - Influence - Congress - Controversy


We look a little bit disorderly, indecisive, leaderless. That’s a real problem, and that’s a problem that concerns me particularly on foreign affairs. The presidency, not just President Obama, but the presidency in recent years has lost some of the terrain that they used to dominate in the making of foreign policy. I think President Obama has to make a serious effort to regain it because he lost some of it himself.
Zbigniew Brzezinski - America - Lack - Politics - Problems - Geopolitics - Foreign Policy - President - Influence

It is better to hang out with people better than you.. you'll drift in that direction.

Warren Buffett - Influence - Improvement


Great American power and responsibility are not unprecedented, and have been used with restraint and great benefit in the past. We have not assumed that super strength guarantees super wisdom, and we have consistently reached out to the international community to ensure that our own power and influence are tempered by the best common judgment.
Jimmy Carter - Power
- Responsibility - Strength

Business is recognizing the role it can play in combatting climate change. Thank God, is all I can say, for there is a desperately urgent need for business to play that role. Your lobbying influence can be substantial, but together, united and in large enough numbers it could prove decisive in turning the tide.
Prince Charles - Environment - Power - Encouragement - Climate Change - Business - Influential - God

I mean, what's the elections? You know, two guys, same background, wealth, political influence, went to the same elite university, joined the same secret society where you're trained to be a ruler - they both can run because they're financed by the same corporate institutions.
Noam Chomsky - Election - Government - Plutocracy - Power - Influential - Wealth - Secret Societies - Ruling Class

The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years. Most people believe that aging is universal but there are biological organisms that never age.
Deepak Chopra - Thinking

Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Belief - Influential - Power - Truth - Lies


As more money flowed through Washington and as Washington's power to regulate our lives grew, opportunities and temptations for graft, influence peddling and cutting corners grew exponentially. Power breeds corruption.
Steve Forbes - Money - Politicians
- Power - Dishonesty

We are what we are, because of the vibrations of thought which we pick up and register, through the stimuli of our daily environment.
Napoleon Hill - Think and Grow Rich - Thinking - Influence - Self Help

Being able to touch so many people through my businesses and make money while doing it, is a huge blessing.
Magic Johnson - Business - Money
- Influence

Most power is power to coerce somebody. We don’t have the power to coerce anybody.
Charles Koch - Power - Influence


I really wanted to retire and rest and spend more time with my children, my grandchildren and of course with my wife. But the problems are such that for anybody with a conscience who can use whatever influence he may have to try to bring about peace, it's difficult to say no.
Nelson Mandela - Peace - Compassion - Retirement
- Children - Family - Problems - Influential

There's a gullible side to the American people. They can be easily misled. Religion is the best device used to mislead them.
Michael Moore - America - Religion - Influential


Today, whether it is a student who holds a sit-in to get the army recruiters off his campus, or the mother of a dead soldier who refuses to leave the front gate of the president's ranch, we continue to be saved by brave people who risk ridicule and rejection but end up turning huge tides of public opinion in the direction of righteousness. We owe them enormous debts of gratitude. It is not easy to stand up for what is right, especially when everyone else is afraid to leave the comfortable path of conformity.
Michael Moore - Influential - Decisions - Encouragement

We're starting with our own carbon footprint. Not nothing. But much of what we're doing is already, or soon will be, little more than the standard way of doing business. We can do something that's unique, different from just any other company. We can set an example, and we can reach our audiences. Our audience's carbon footprint is 10,000 times bigger than ours. That's the carbon footprint we want to conquer.
Rupert Murdoch - Carbon - Responsibility - Business - Media - Influential - Encouragement - Companies

Imagine if we succeed in inspiring our audiences to reduce their own impacts on climate change by just one percent. That would be like turning the State of California off for almost two months.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Media - Influential - Imagination - Inspirational - Success

News Corporation, today, reaches people at home and at work... when they're thinking... when they're laughing... and when they are making choices that have enormous impact.
The unique potential.. and duty.. of a media company are to help its audiences connect to the issues that define our time.
Rupert Murdoch - Responsibility - Media - Influential - Encouragement - Companies - Thinking - Help

While we reduce our own carbon footprint we will encourage the companies who truck our DVDs and newspapers, sell us paper, and provide an enormous range of products and services.. to all contribute.
Rupert Murdoch - Global Warming - Carbon - Influential - Leadership - Companies - Encouragement


You know what’s really frightening? You (Jon Stewart) actually have an influence on this presidential election. That is scary, but it’s true. You’ve got stoned slackers watching your dopey show every night and they can vote.
Bill O'Reilly - Power - Presidential - Politicians

I think access to ministers should be just normal for any citizen in a society, because ministers stand at the last sentry of the gate to review the activities of the public service, and that's part of our democratic system. Every person should be allowed to have access to their local member of parliament or their minister.
Clive Palmer - Politics - Society - Democracy - Influence

Your life experience will never far exceed the expectations of your peers, because to stay connected to them there is an unconscious contract that says we’re going to be within this range of each other. Now, on the other hand, if for some reason your friends have a higher expectation for life than you do, just to stay on the team you’ve got to raise your standard.
Tony Robbins - Life - Relationships - Friendship - Influence - Team

For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with (Fidel) Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure.. one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.
David Rockefeller - America - Power - World - Conspiracy Theories - Cabal - Ideology - Influential - Politics - Economy - Secret - Globalization - Economy - Guilty - International

Since leaving office in 1977, Dr. Kissinger has continued to play a highly influential role in U.S. politics, in the U.S. media, and in the Rockefeller world empire. It was Kissinger, along with David Rockefeller, who was decisive in the disastrous decision of President Carter to admit the recently toppled Shah of Iran, old friend and ally of the Rockefellers into the United States, a decision that led directly to the Iranian hostage crisis and to Carter's downfall.
Murray Rothbard - America - Government -
Foreign Policy - Iran - Influential - Crisis - Politics - Manipulation - Elite

Kissinger's major, and most lucrative role, has come as head of Kissinger Associates in New York City, founded on a loan obtained in 1982 from the international banking firm of E.M. Warburg, Pincus and Company. Nominally, Kissinger Associates (KA) is an "international consulting firm" but "consultant" covers many sins, and in KA's case, this means international political influence-peddling for its two dozen or so important corporate clients.

Influential - Politics - New York City - Loan - Manipulation - Elite - Ruling Class

The fact of the matter is that today, stuff-selling mega-corporations have a huge influence on our daily lives. And because of the competitive nature of our global economy, these corporations are generally only concerned with one thing.. the bottom line. That is, maximizing profit, regardless of the social or environmental costs.
David Suzuki - Companies - Profits - Products - Business Ethics - Social - Earnings - Influential - Environmental - Consumer


Your ability to negotiate, communicate, influence, and persuade others to do things is absolutely indispensable to everything you accomplish in life. The most effective men and women in every area are those who can quite competently organize the cooperation and assistance of other people toward the accomplishment of important goals and objectives.

Brian Tracy - Goals - Leadership - Achievement


Each individual person is very important. Each person has tremendous potential. She or he alone can influence the lives of others within the communities, nations, within and beyond her or his own time.
Muhammad Yunus - Motivational - Change - Important - Potential
