Learning to see waste and systematically eliminate it has allowed lean companies such as Toyota to dominate entire industries. Lean thinking defines value as 'providing benefit to the customer'; anything else is waste.
It's a good rule of thumb, it seems to me: if you're not allowed to see where something comes from, don't put it in your mouth.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I was allowed to ring the bell for five minutes until everyone was in assembly. It was the beginning of power.
The world is apt to judge of everything by the success; and whoever has ill fortune will hardly be allowed a good name.
Once a word has been allowed to escape, it cannot be recalled.
Justice is my being allowed to do whatever I like. Injustice is whatever prevents my doing so.
It's ridiculous that people aren't allowed to love who they love, have families, and have the same life as straight people. It's infuriating.
I've made sure that in any situation and with any record label, I'm allowed to write my own music.
I went to the Rudolf Steiner School in New York, and you're not allowed to watch TV.
The general interest of the masses might take the place of the insight of genius if it were allowed freedom of action.

My wife's income allowed me to do what I really loved. I realized that women's liberation is men's liberation, too.
Pristine vulnerability is just so boring to me. The performances that I love are ones like Gena Rowland's in 'A Woman Under the Influence,' where women are allowed to be messy and imperfect. It's that kind of woman that has always inspired me to seek roles that are a little out of the box. I just haven't always had the opportunity to do them.
Corporations are economic entities or structures, and yet they're allowed to fund political candidates, and when those candidates are elected, guess who gets in the door first? It's corporations.
Doubtless the most miserable of men, under the most oppressive government in the world, if allowed the ballot, would use it, if they could see any chance of thereby ameliorating their condition.
