Quote of the Day
If you set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.
Corporate executives and business owners need to realize that there can be no compromise when it comes to ethics, and there are no easy shortcuts to success. Ethics need to be carefully sown into the fabric of their companies.
All compromise is based on give and take, but there can be no give and take on fundamentals. Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender. For it is all give and no take.
A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.
There is no compromise when it comes to corruption. You have to fight it.
A. K. Antony
Human beings are born solitary, but everywhere they are in chains - daisy chains - of interactivity. Social actions are makeshift forms, often courageous, sometimes ridiculous, always strange. And in a way, every social action is a negotiation, a compromise between 'his,' 'her' or 'their' wish and yours.
Tolerance, compromise, understanding, acceptance, patience - I want those all to be very sharp tools in my shed.
Cee Lo Green
Tragedy in life normally comes with betrayal and compromise, and trading on your integrity and not having dignity in life. That's really where failure comes.

Aung San Suu Kyi

We are never doing anyone any favors by withholding our gifts from the world. It's scary to be fierce, but you can't compromise that for fear of losing those around you.
The 'morality of compromise' sounds contradictory. Compromise is usually a sign of weakness, or an admission of defeat. Strong men don't compromise, it is said, and principles should never be compromised.
I shall argue that strong men, conversely, know when to compromise and that all principles can be compromised to serve a greater principle.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Thomas S. Monson

South Carolina, as a matter of compromise, displays the Confederate flag on a flagpole in front of the state capitol.

Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got.
No party has a monopoly on wisdom. No democracy works without compromise. But when Governor Romney and his allies in Congress tell us we can somehow lower our deficit by spending trillions more on new tax breaks for the wealthy - well, you do the math. I refuse to go along with that. And as long as I'm President, I never will.
More often there's a compromise between ethics and expediency.
A lean compromise is better than a fat lawsuit.
You can compromise between good, better, and best, and you can compromise between bad and worse and terrible. But you can't compromise between good and evil. And now people look at the other side as a completely different kind of animal and say, 'They are taking the country down the road to purgatory.' It's complete intolerance.
Healthy disagreement, debate, leading to compromise has always been the American way.
Donald L. Carcieri
