Frank was the BOSS and was not open to anything that was not from his head. There were no arguments about music because if you did, he would show you where the door was. Period.
Jimmy Carl Black
My wife, Jill, and I have an incredibly close working relationship, and an incredibly happy married one. We met through work. I was the world's worst advertising copywriter. She had the misfortune to be my account director, so from the very start she was my boss, and she still is.
I am pretty tough as a boss.
I had three stages of knowing Wellington Mara. He was my boss for a long time and he was a father figure. And finally, as we got older, he was my friend.
I waited tables in New York, and when you're in that line of work, you often have a horrible boss.
There are many people in the world who feel that if only they had a bigger car, a nicer house, better vacations, a more understanding boss, or a more interesting partner, then their life would work. We all go through that one. Slowly we wear out most of our 'if onlies.'
I feel like, in a lot of shows where the woman is in charge, the woman is this ball buster and the guy is sort of weak and spineless. And that's never been my experience in a relationship. I think it's much more interesting that the guy is the boss. And there are stakes.
I loved it, but social reality impeded. Now I wander in here at 9 in the morning or so, and come back for a while in the afternoon. I am a very lenient boss.
Donald E. Westlake
I am the boss of me. You can't change anyone else. Women think they can. But you know what? You can't.
It's good fun, making a solo album, because there's perhaps songs that wouldn't get used for the Stones or any other kind of outfit that I'm working with. It's just nice to be the boss.
I faced a number of challenges whilst I built Biocon. Initially, I had credibility challenges where I couldn't get banks to fund me; I couldn't recruit people to work for a woman boss. Even in the businesses where I had to procure raw materials, they didn't want to deal with women.
Even the frankest and bravest of subordinates do not talk with their boss the same way they talk with colleagues.
Robert K. Greenleaf
Boss, life is trouble. Only death is not. To be alive is to undo your belt and look for trouble.
If you write something that gets a bad response, or someone commits candor or is off message, there are often consequences almost immediately when it appears in the paper or a magazine, that somebody gets called into the boss's office. And sometimes it can result in a loss of access for the reporter.
I never wanted to work for anybody else; I always wanted to be my own boss.
Actually, I started to become an actress because I met someone who was just a friend and I found his life wonderful, I thought, Oh my god, you can travel, you're free, you can do what you want, you're the boss. And then I met an actor and I was in love with him.
In Downing Street they called me 'Boss'. Civil servants would always call me 'Prime Minister'.
I'm not a tough boss in that I don't raise my voice, I don't freak out, and I don't have a temper most of the time.
I don't mind The Boss. I think he's an honest guy. I have some of his records, not all of them. I've met a couple of the E-Street guys, and they seem really cool.
Obviously, no LGBT person should be denied the ability to be who they are because their boss disagrees.
I don't think I'm supposed to boss other people around just because I'm a so-called celebrity or star. I hate that when people act that way. No one deserves it. I've seen it happen. I don't call those people out - they know who they are. Some enjoy that reputation.
Your boss is only human and just wants the best from you.
The truth is that stress doesn't come from your boss, your kids, your spouse, traffic jams, health challenges, or other circumstances. It comes from your thoughts about these circumstances.
Andrew J. Bernstein
Working for a magazine, you have a boss; you are not free.
The first step to stringing the boss up from a lamppost is saying the boss is a moron.
My wife came into my life, and my mother still wanted to be the boss.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
