The essence of greatness is neglect of the self.
James Anthony Froude

The one characteristic of authentic power that most people overlook is humbleness. It is important for many reasons. A humble person walks in a friendly world.

Business is not a spiritual matter, and my business decisions are not based on spiritual considerations.

Can anything be more down-to-earth than that?

Isaac Bashevis Singer

Agriculture is now a motorized food industry, the same thing in its essence as the production of corpses in the gas chambers and the extermination camps, the same thing as blockades and the reduction of countries to famine, the same thing as the manufacture of hydrogen bombs.

B. R. Ambedkar
