10 People Who Make a Lot of Sense

I spend a lot of time on this blog giving you advice that I hope will help you in your career. But sometimes, you just have to step aside and let other people do your talking for you. I think these are some pretty smart folks, so lend an ear:

"An overburdened, stretched executive is the best executive, because he or she doesn't have time to meddle, to deal in trivia, to bother people." -- Jack Welch

"It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit." -- Harry S. Truman

"People will always work harder if they're getting well paid and if they're afraid to lose a job which they knoww ill be hard to equal. As is well known, if you pay in peanuts, you get monkeys." -- Armand Hammer

"Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless." -- Thomas Alva Edison

"When I can't handle events, I let them handle themselves." -- Henry Ford

"Success is a lousy teacher -- it seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose." -- Bill Gates

"Remember happiness doesn't depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely on what you think." -- Dale Carnegie

"If you want a place in the sun, you've got to put up with a few blisters." -- Abigail van Buren

"I don't try to jump over seven-foot bars. I look around for the one-foot bars that I can step over." -- Warren Buffet

"Career opportunities are ones that never knock." -- The Clash

If you've got a great quote to share, or one that is inspirational to you, please feel free to add to the list. We can always use wise words.
