Historical quotes

“… Thousands and millions of individuals work, produce and save no matter what we can come up with to annoy, hinder and discourage them. They are prompted by a natural vocation rather than mere thirst for money. Their pride in seeing their operation prosper, establish a reputation, inspire confidence from an ever growing clientele; their pleasure in extending their facilities and embellishing their offices, constitute an incentive towards progress that is every bit as powerful as profit.
If that were not so, how could there be enterpreneurs who invest their entire energies and capital in their business, often to produce much smaller returns than any they could safely and conveniently derive from other employment.”
