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.
Abraham - Marketing
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.
Abraham - Success
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.
Armani - Fashion
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.
Armani - Design
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.
Bernays - Women
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.
Bernays - Propaganda
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.
Bernays - Ruler
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.
Bernays - Masses
The Israelis have a lot of influence with
Congress, and in some cases they are able
to buy influence.
Brzezinski - America
Policy - Influence
We look a little bit disorderly, indecisive,
leaderless. Thats a real problem,
and thats 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.
Brzezinski - America
Policy - President
It is better to hang out with people better
than you.. you'll drift in that direction.
Buffett - Influence
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.
Carter - Power
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
Charles - Environment

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
Chomsky - Election
Societies - Ruling
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.
Chopra - Thinking
Religion is about turning untested belief
into unshakable truth through the power
of institutions and the passage of time.
Dawkins - Religion
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
Forbes - Money
We are what we are, because of the vibrations
of thought which we pick up and register,
through the stimuli of our daily environment.
Hill - Think
and Grow Rich - Thinking
Being able to touch so many people through
my businesses and make money while doing
it, is a huge blessing.
Johnson - Business
Most power is power to coerce somebody.
We dont have the power to coerce anybody.
Koch - Power
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.
Mandela - Peace
There's a gullible side to the American
people. They can be easily misled. Religion
is the best device used to mislead them.
Moore - America
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.
Moore - Influential
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.
Murdoch - Carbon
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.
Murdoch - Climate
Change - Media
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.
Murdoch - Responsibility
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.
Murdoch - Global
Warming - Carbon
You know whats really frightening?
Stewart) actually have an influence
on this presidential election. That is scary,
but its true. Youve got stoned
slackers watching your dopey show every
night and they can vote.
O'Reilly - Power
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.
Palmer - Politics
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 were 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 youve
got to raise your standard.
Robbins - Life
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.
Rockefeller - America
Theories - Cabal
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
into the United States, a decision that
led directly to the Iranian hostage crisis
and to Carter's downfall.

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

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

ability to negotiate, communicate, influence, and persuade others to do things
