Abramovich - Passions
It is hope in this wider sense which enabled
my father to build, from scratch, one of
India's largest modern enterprises. His
was an undertaking powered by hard work,
initiative, self-belief but, above all else,
the capacity, as he would often say, "to
dream with your eyes wide open".
Ambani - Ambition
I think you have to work with people, and

two others up close, and I know that there's
no such thing as a routine day in the Oval
Cheney - President
That's the nature of the intelligence business.
You have to work with what you can get your
hands on, but it is.. and in fact it's more
an art form than it is a science, and you
have to continually work the problem, continually
Cheney - Politicians
One of the problems we have as a government
is our inability to keep secrets. And it
costs us, in terms of our relationship with
other governments, in terms of the willingness
of other intelligence services to work with
us, in terms of revealing sources and methods.
And all of those elements enter into some
of these leaks.
Cheney - Politicians

The kind of commitment I find among the
best performers across virtually every field

day with a spring in your step.

favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor
by giving us an opportunity to do so.

got a good balance of how I spend my time.

dedicates themselves to excellence.
H. Johnson - Motivational

You cannot spend money in luxury without
doing good to the poor. Nay, you do more
good to them by spending it in luxury, than
by giving it; for by spending it in luxury,
you make them exert industry, whereas by
giving it, you keep them idle.

income, to be personally concerned about
your future. This is hard work.

every part of it. Never once did it ever
feel like work.

Political economy regards the proletarian
like a horse, he must receive enough to
enable him to work. It does not consider

politics, and the beadle.
