People are your most valuable asset. Only people can be made to appreciate in value.

Beauty is an asset, just like physical prowess, charisma, brains or emotional intelligence. The key with any gift is in the way that you use it. It doesn’t define you as a person. Rather, it’s an asset to be used judiciously and with an understanding of how it is just a small part of who you are.
Dale Archer

Privacy is a vast subject. Also, remember that privacy and convenience is always a trade-off. When you open a bank account and want to borrow some money, and you want to get a very cheap loan, you’ll share all details of your assets because you want them to give you a low interest rate.
Nandan Nilekani
If I had challenges in my company, I would not hesitate to sell assets to remain afloat, to get to the better times, because it doesn’t make any sense for me to keep any assets and then suffocate the whole organization.

If you don’t have ample liquidity, and it’s not durable, in times of stress, as you’re looking for liquidity, you’re forced to sell assets at declining prices, which then eats into your capital position, so it becomes this very, very negative cycle. There’s no question that liquidity is sacrosanct.

Time – the one asset none of us are ever gonna get more of.

It may try to achieve that goal by nationalizing assets, by command-and-control regulation, or by taxation and redistribution.
Virginia Postrel
State companies winning deals because of government-to- government interaction has become a rule rather than an exception. This will increase competition for multinational companies in acquiring oil and gas assets.

Donald Trump
If an asset has cash flow or the likelihood of cash flow in the near term and is not purely dependment on what a future buyer might pay, then it’s an investment. If an asset’s value is totally dependent on the amount a future buyer might pay, then its purchase is speculation.

Yellen’s comments suggest, and I agree, that we are in an asset bubble.
Carl Icahn

Michael Lewis
A women’s greatest asset is her beauty.
Alex Comfort
Stock prices relative to company assets are no better at signaling the likelihood of future earnings growth than they were the day the Titanic sank, and risk management is a good deal worse.

Martin Feldstein
Once you identify positional needs, then I think, then, what you do is, you be very selective on how you go about acquiring those players.

John Dorsey

Peter Coyote
The conventional asset-allocation method is like sheet music. It is prescribed, it has right answers and wrong answers and it sounds about the same every time. But jamming is different. Jamming is when you make the music. When you improvise and adapt to conditions. When you are creative.
John Kao
Actions aimed at supporting deleveraging and balance-sheet repair – such as recognizing losses, writing down assets, and recapitalizing banks – carry longer-term benefits but short-term costs.
Michael Spence
If inheritance tax were to be introduced for the monarch, it would mean slowly slicing away the royal assets.

Alfred P. Sloan

Daymond John

Jack Nicklaus
Experience is an asset of which no worker can be cheated, no matter how selfish or greedy his immediate employer may be.
Napoleon Hill
My parents’ concern has been one of my greatest assets – I needed something to kick against. If they’d supported me every step of the way I might not have had enough fire in my belly to get where I have. Then I think: was this whole thing reverse psychology, did you really go to those lengths?
KT Tunstall

George Madison Adams

Bo Burnham
There are two major challenges before Indian agriculture today: ecological and economical. The conservation of our basic agricultural assets such as land, water, and biodiversity is a major challenge. How to make agriculture sustainable is the challenge.
M. S. Swaminathan
In a world that is deepening its mutual interdependence, inward-focused thinking is no longer able to safeguard the peace of Japan. We will fully defend the lives and assets of our nationals as well as our territory, territorial waters, and territorial airspace in a resolute manner.
Shinzo Abe
We tend to focus on assets and forget about debts. Financial security requires facing up to the big picture: assets minus debts.
Suze Orman
The assets of the Jewish National Home must be created exclusively through our own work, for only the product of the Hebrew labor can serve as the national estate.
David Ben-Gurion
Why doesn’t the United States take over the monarchy and unite with England? England does have important assets. Naturally the longer you wait, the more they will dwindle. At least you could use it for a summer resort instead of Maine.
W. H. Auden
In business a reputation for keeping absolutely to the letter and spirit of an agreement, even when it is unfavorable, is the most precious of assets, although it is not entered in the balance sheet.

Simon van der Meer

Uday Kotak
In the real world, illiquid assets carry a discount.
David Einhorn

Jean Ziegler
An asset allocation plan is based on your personal circumstances, goals, time-horizon, and need and willingness to take risk.
Michael LeBoeuf
We must end the iniquitous multi-taxing of the same money. It is not right to tax people’s incomes, then their savings on that income, to tax the movement of assets through capital gains tax, stamp duty and tax them again through inheritance tax if they have the audacity to die.
Liam Fox
A trust-in the sense of a valuable asset placed in the care of someone to whom it does not ultimately belong-captures, more or less, my understanding of what it is to have a child.
Eula Biss
Siemens’ health care IT assets provide additional scale, R&D, an impressive client base, and knowledgeable and experienced associates who will help Cerner achieve our plans for the next decade.
Neal Patterson
The public disclosure of assets by judges, though a welcome first step, is certainly not the end all of the serious problem of judicial accountability or the lack of it.
Prashant Bhushan
I feel that Dennis Rodman has become a problem. He will be more of a problem than an asset. Of course, he can prove me wrong.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
The banking business is no favorite of ours. When assets are twenty times equity – a common ratio in this industry – mistakes that involve only a small portion of assets can destroy a major portion of equity. And mistakes have been the rule rather than the exception at many major banks.
Warren Buffett
If you don’t feel comfortable making a rough estimate of the asset’s future earnings, just forget it and move on. No one has the ability to evaluate every investment possibility. But omniscience isn’t necessary; you only need to understand the actions you undertake.
Warren Buffett
My bottom line is that monetary policy should react to rising prices for houses or other assets only insofar as they affect the central bank’s goal variables – output, employment, and inflation.
Janet Yellen
When I was young, I thought banks were there to protect the assets of people who had justified concerns, because of their experiences under communism for example.
Herve Falciani
Thirty years ago, about 80% of a company’s assets resided in its plant and equipment, with 20% in the knowledge of its people. Today, the reverse is true. The knowledge of our staff is our principal asset
Susan Rice
But the basic principle that we’re going to have to see some of this debt written down, that the government is going to have to support some banks, that others that are not viable, essentially that we’re going to have to do something with those assets.
Barack Obama
I believe that Sean Quinn wouldn’t be a man at all if he let someone steal his family’s assets.
Sean Quinn
Well, I feel that we’re kind of fortunate that this book gives the whole world a lesson in economics and how to get out of the mess that we’re all in. It’s basic message is to try and stop spending as much and try to release some of your assets to pay off your debt.
Jerry Bruckheimer
The establishment of the National Park Service is justified by considerations of good administration, of the value of natural beauty as a National asset, and of the effectiveness of outdoor life and recreation in the production of good citizenship.
Theodore Roosevelt
My weakness, that is, my quadriplegia, is my greatest asset because it forces me into the arms of Christ every single morning when I get up.
Joni Eareckson Tada
Greatest sin of man kind: neglect to use his greatest asset.
Napoleon Hill
This other war, the war upon destruction of natural assets is one that will never be finished. Our weakness in this vast war is largely ignorance, that most of our citizens do not realize what is going on under their very feet.
Louis Bromfield
Thinking clearly and effectively is the greatest asset of any human being.
Harry Lorayne
The music industry is a strange combination of having real and intangible assets: pop bands are brand names in themselves, and at a given stage in their careers their name alone can practically gaurantee hit records.
Richard Branson
I sell my problems. I’m a woman with problems. I’ve had problems since the day I was born. And I have found a way to turn my problems into assets.
Suzanne Somers
To make our state operate more like a business, we must get a handle on all of our assets and liabilities.
Jim Justice
I think Kwame will be an asset to the Lakers.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Almost any illiquid asset today lends itself well to moving onto the blockchain and becoming tokenized. It will create a deeper market with improved price discovery and should increase the value of those assets.
David O. Sacks
Goodwill is the only asset that competition cannot undersell or destroy.
Marshall Field
Time is a most precious asset. Would you consider investing more of your time in the things of eternity in order to merit the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost and to benefit more fully from His influence?
Keith K. Hilbig
A wise man is a greater asset to a nation than a king.
Canada is today the most successful pluralist society on the face of our globe, without any doubt in my mind… That is something unique to Canada. It is an amazing global human asset.
Aga Khan IV
That fallacy flies in the face of studies that show, every day, in every way, things are getting a little worse for America’s minorities relative to the progress made by those in the top percentiles of assets and income.
Harold Washington
More people are interested in trying to shuffle paper assets around than building lasting assets by producing real goods.
Akio Morita
Privatization of assets that most of us consider public goods – like airports and highways – has a long, often-uncontroversial history.
Bethany McLean
What we define as a bubble is any kind of debt-fueled asset inflation where the cash flow generated by the asset itself – a rental property, office building, condo – does not cover the debt incurred to buy the asset. So you depend on a greater fool, if you will, to come in and buy at a higher price.
James Chanos
We need to throw the resources at this that are necessary. But like I say, we are not spending money. I mean, if we buy these assets intelligently, the United States Treasury will make money. I mean, it’s borrowing money. It’s just a few percent a year.
Warren Buffett
Two kids in their dorm room can’t start anything important in space today. That’s why I want to take the assets I have from Amazon and translate that into the heavy-lifting infrastructure that will allow the next generation to have dynamic entrepreneurialism in space, to build that transportation network.
Jeff Bezos
The best asset is your own self. You can become to an enormous degree the person you want to be
Warren Buffett
To gain profit is important, but you must invest to build up assets that you can cash in in the future.
Akio Morita
Polychain manages a hedge fund that invests exclusively in digital assets. We invest exclusively in protocols, not companies, and we do this by investing in things made scarce through the blockchain.
Olaf Carlson-Wee
You should have a strategic asset allocation mix that assumes that you don’t know what the future is going to hold.
Ray Dalio
There is a science to managing high tech businesses, and it needs to be respected. One of them is that in technology businesses, leadership is temporary. It’s constantly recycling. So the asset has limited lifetime.
Eric Schmidt
We have the right assets for a fast-growing digital business.
Bernard Ebbers
I didn’t have any of those good assets to have successful teenage years. It was hard. And what saved me was definitely my whole family. I knew where I was coming from and where I was going to.
Celine Dion
The foremost challenge is that of the knowledge revolution. Economic power will depend on creativity and innovation. Creation of wealth will move from traditional resources to the one asset: knowledge.
Talal Abu-Ghazaleh
Often the great scientists, by turning the problem around a bit, changed a defect to an asset. For example, many scientists when they found they couldn’t do a problem finally began to study why not. They then turned it around the other way and said, “But of course, this is what it is” and got an important result.
Richard Hamming
We’ve had a number of economists supporting our legislation. And here’s where we are. The American people can judge. Six largest financial institutions in America today have assets of roughly $10 trillion; equivalent to 58 percent of the GDP of the United States of America.
Bernie Sanders
Experience is an author’s most valuable asset; experience is the thing that puts the muscle and the breath and the warm blood into the book he writes.
Mark Twain
A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.
Billy Graham
The older you get and the wealthier you get, the more complicated life becomes. That’s why I have as few material assets as possible. Every material thing you have is more hassle.
Peter Hargreaves
On April 27th 2017 the UK approved Magnitsky Sanctions as part of the Criminal Finances Bill. The provision gives the British government the power to seize assets of gross human rights violators.
Bill Browder
I grew up in Mexico, not the U.S., and the fact is that there just aren’t any parts for Latin actresses. I have to persuade people that my accent won’t be a problem, but an asset.
Salma Hayek
The best thing we can do is prepare people to lead in a much more diverse environment and see that as one of our national assets and one of the things that makes America strong.
Gerald Chertavian
In today’s work arena, creativity may be more of an asset than competence.
Dan Miller
What many don’t know is that Arizona has a something called the State Land Trust – a fund with assets that have been set aside and invested for decades specifically to benefit education.
Doug Ducey
Positive and engaged brains are a company’s greatest assets. More than time and even more than productivity, people must be happy.
Shawn Achor
Time is the most valuable asset you don’t own. You may or may not realize it yet, but how you use or don’t use your time is going to be the best indication of where your future is going to take you .
Mark Cuban
Calling bitcoin volatile – it’s a non-statement. Unregulated assets with unclear regulatory landscapes are always going to be volatile. That’s what unregulated assets do.
Tyler Winklevoss
Increasingly, the Chinese will own a lot more of the world because they will be converting their dollar reserves and U.S. government bonds into real assets.
George Soros
One way to make sure you don’t lose assets in the future is to streamline your accounts. Consider using one bank for all your banking needs and one brokerage firm for all your investments.
Jean Chatzky
There is no law saying you have to die before your assets can be passed to loved ones. In fact, gifting earlier can be a lovely way to witness how your money helps your family thrive.
Suze Orman
That sort of fundamentalism which treats possession of private property not as a desirable economic and personal asset but as a condition of liberty is a form of primitive religion.
Neil Kinnock
It isn’t only rich countries that suffer from the effects of tax havens. Developing countries also lose billions of dollars in tax revenues due each year because wealthy individuals and some companies use tax havens to move assets and income offshore.
Jose Angel Gurria
The Senate needs to leave enough money in the proposed budget to not only reduce all marginal rates, but to eliminate the death tax, so that people who build up assets are able to transfer them from one generation to the next, regardless of a person’s race.
George W. Bush
Imperfect substitutability of assets implies that changes in the supplies of various assets available to private investors may affect the prices and yields of those assets.
Ben Bernanke
To change rules that are already in place takes time, energy, perseverance and a lot of hard work. You only have so many of these assets at your disposal, so choose with care the rules you want to change.
Peter McWilliams
The most valuable asset a nation has is the creativity of its children.
Alan Plater
It ultimately becomes an asset to be part of a theatrical family if, indeed, you’re good at what you do.
Kate Burton
Air power alone does not guarantee America’s security, but I believe it best exploits the nation’s greatest asset – our technical skill.
Hoyt Vandenberg
The number of one’s possible fantasies is inversely proportional to the amount of one’s liquid assets. For him who has everything dreams are no longer possible.
Stanislaw Lem
Those who dare to interpret God’s will must never claim Him as an asset for one nation or group rather than another. War springs from the love and loyalty which should be offered to God being applied to some God substitute, one of the most dangerous being nationalism.
Robert Runcie
No one has a greater asset for his business than a man’s pride in his work.
Hosea Ballou
The value of assets often increases exponentially while the value of your labor only increases incrementally.
Robert Kiyosaki
Every liability is just an asset in hiding.
Mark Victor Hansen
Network marketing gives people the opportunity, with very low risk and very low financial commitment, to build their own income-generating asset and acquire great wealth.
Robert Kiyosaki
When you’re acting, you’re subjective; when you’re a director, you’re more objective.You’re kind of watching from the outside and helping others, and therefore I learn my mistakes through others, and also my assets through others.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Do the best you can. And remember that the greatest asset you have in this world is those children who you’ve brought into the world, and for whose nurture and care you’re responsible.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Let us put an end to self-inflicted wounds. Let us remember that our national unity is a most priceless asset. Let us deny our adversaries the satisfaction of using Vietnam to pit Americans against Americans.
Gerald R. Ford
Technology usually provides a series of tradeoffs. Each asset is offset by a deficit…A major problem occurs when those who suffer from technology’s defecits and those who benefit are not the same people.
Donald A. Norman
The essence of effective portfolio construction is the use of a large number of poorly correlated assets.
William J. Bernstein
It takes a while for executives to understand that every company is a spatial company, fundamentally: where are our assets, where are our customers, where are our sales. But when they get it, they light up and say, ‘I want to get the geographic advantage.’
Jack Dangermond
Consider the idea that charisma can be as much a liability as an asset. Your strength of personality can sow the seeds of problems, when people filter the brutal facts from you.
James C. Collins
Much of our brainpower goes unused, and many people could benefit greatly from optimizing their mental assets.
Walter O’Brien
A trustee has a responsibility to guard the assets of others with a higher degree of care than he does his own.
John Ashcroft
…the hard work and poverty of my childhoodturned out to be my greatest asset in later years. Nothing could ever seem too hard after that.
Sue Sanders
Something like Windows is still an unbelievable asset but because the world is somewhat phone-centric, it’s an asset that has to be managed very carefully to make sure that it’s extended, and there are very interesting things that are being done with that.
Bill Gates
You’d be safe to hold 5% of your assets and savings in gold and silver. Insurance for the future.
John Paul DeJoria
I remember telling a neurosurgeon, “Don’t give me too much information, because at the moment my ignorance is my best asset.”
Christopher Reeve
Somebody asked me if I could go back and start again with a different brain, would I. Years ago I thought yes, I would, and now I know I wouldn’t. Because whatever challenges I had in school, I guess they forced me to where I am today. So I now see them as an asset.
Henry Winkler
Your attitude is either your best friend or your worst enemy, your
greatest asset or your greatest liability
John C. Maxwell
Russia became a juicy chunk of the Third World, with immense reserves of cheap labor, a vast treasure of natural resources, and industrial assets to be sold off at giveaway prices.
Michael Parenti
Let’s be honest: It wasn’t just the banks who messed up. There were a lot of people who tried to buy assets they couldn’t afford. That’s a reality.
James P. Gorman
Media and technology are our greatest assets. And yet, they are our most undervalued and underused assets. Now when I say that, people look at me like I’m crazy because every young person we know in the world is never without media, ever.
Pat Mitchell
All I can do is assess the value from Manchester United perspective. Whatever Chelsea do, they may have a different criteria, and different financial assets.
David Gill
In many ways, not fitting in has been a comedic asset and a comedic resource.
Jack Dee
Brains are an asset, if you hide them.
Mae West
I certainly agree that capital is not a one-dimensional object, and that the return on capital takes very different forms for different assets or different people.
Thomas Piketty
Contrary to what most people believe, trust is not some soft, illusive quality that you either have or you don’t; rather, trust is a pragmatic, tangible, actionable asset that you canВ create.
Stephen Covey
Being able to see and recombine existing assets and know-how in new ways allows us to take an ‘ingenious approach to innovation’ – one that creates even more value from what we already have and know.
Cathy Engelbert
I was improvising before I was reading music. I was just trying to play things on the clarinet by ear. I think my ear is one of my greatest assets.
Pete Fountain
Equity is the cushion that protects financial institutions from unexpected changes in the value of their assets. The greater the leverage, the smaller the losses required to wipe out a company’s equity, leaving it without enough money to repay the people who hold its debt.
Alex Berenson
Where the assets of Facebook were hype, we have real assets.
Aliko Dangote
Our state’s beautiful natural environment is part of why we all love and live in New Hampshire. It is also one of our state’s most important economic assets.
John Lynch
Left untended, knowledge and skill, like all assets, depreciate in value surprisingly quickly.
David Maister
You see the assets of your actors and you see their strengths and you try to play into them. It’s like I feel part of my job is as a coach. I’m putting a team on the field and you want to formulate how to make the best game out of these players.
James Mangold
The amount of money you have has got nothing to do with what you earn.. people earning a million dollars a year can have no money and.. People earning $35,000 a year can be quite well off. It’s not what you earn, it’s what you spend.
Paul Clitheroe
Asset values and earning power are the dominant factors affecting the valuation of a controlling interest in a business. Market price, which governs valuation of minority interest positions, is of little or no importance in valuing a controlling interest.
Warren Buffett
A dollar vigilante is a free market individual who protests the government monopoly and financial policies, such as fractional reserve banking and unbacked fiat currencies, by selling those same fiat currencies in favor of other assets, including gold and precious metals.
Jeff Berwick
We are on our way to blockchains as the fabric of society – the system for what we own (assets), who we are (identity), how we make decisions (governance), and more in an increasingly digital world. It’s going to be a wild ride.
Fred Ehrsam
My soul is my great asset and my great misfortune.
D. H. Lawrence
Study how to write smart contracts, which is the basic unit of programming a blockchain for business purposes. It is the equivalent of being taught HTML and Java during the early Internet days. And master how to create assets or tokenize existing ones on a blockchain.
William Mougayar
While easy to understand, the income-based poverty line has limitations. Specifically, the median monthly household income measures only income without considering assets.
Carrie Lam
I think Dodd-Frank has contributed to a concentration of banking assets in the hands of a small number of banks.
Mitt Romney
A coach’s greatest asset is his sense of responsibility – the reliance placed on him by his players.
Knute Rockne
Simplicity is an asset, not a weakness… The smaller the idea the happier I am.
Cory Arcangel
No one would look just at a firm’s revenues to assess how well it was doing. Far more relevant is the balance sheet, which shows assets and liability. That is also true for a country.
Joseph Stiglitz
My mind is my biggest asset.
Tiger Woods
Stocks are at an all-time high today. I don’t have any money in the stock market. I don’t have the stomach for the ups and downs. So about 20 years ago I put all of my money and liquid assets into videotape rewind machines.
David Letterman
I want to see Haiti do better. We have the sun everywhere: that’s a big asset. We have wonderful coasts, beautiful islands, mountains. Other countries that have that are known for it, but Haiti has been so focused inwards, on its problems.
Laurent Lamothe
When Gordon Brown becomes prime minister, the balance sheet that reflects his economic stewardship could look very sickly indeed. He could become Labour’s biggest liability, not its most marketable asset.
Vince Cable
It is said that the offender never forgives. Certainly it is quite explicitly hard for the one in the wrong to do so. And it takes more spiritual asset than continued alcohol often leaves.
Louise Jordan Miln
Employers have gone away from the idea that an employee is a long-term asset to the company, someone to be nurtured and developed, to a new notion that they are disposable.
Barbara Ehrenreich
When interest rates are low we have conditions for asset bubbles to develop, and they are developing at the moment. The ultimate asset bubble is gold.
George Soros
An optimised tax structure gives us the possibility of flexibility in using our assets that have already been taxed in one market. They can be used in new markets for further business development without the additional burden of double taxation.
Ingvar Kamprad
In the large buy out space, which is where we (Kohlberg Kravis Roberts) focus our efforts, there are relatively few firms with the capital, experience, infrastructure and networks to compete effectively with the large complex companies that we seek to acquire.
Henry Kravis
The biggest asset you have is your earning capacity, and that depends entirely on your attitude.
Ben Feldman
Being able to borrow against one’s crypto assets gives one options, when wanting to purchase a property, and aligns with my philosophy that real estate and tokenization will be a quadrillion dollar market.
Brock Pierce
Diversity – both in ideas and people – has always been one of the country’s greatest assets.
Ted Lieu
Provision was also made for the distribution of Germany’s foreign assets among the Allies.
James F. Byrnes
We have managed to acquire $13 trillion of debt on our balance sheet. In my view we have nothing to show for it. We haven’t invested in our roads, our bridges, our waste-water systems, our sewer systems. We haven’t even maintained the assets that our parents and grandparents built for us.
Michael Bennet
Courage is the only asset That will conquer in the fight If you have the will to mass it On the lines of truth and right.
Jack Crawford
On the other hand, the American public possesses a great resilience and strength, and good risk communication strategies can tap into and even amplify those assets.
Patrick J. Kennedy
We have talented people, great businesses, and an unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit in Montana. By raising capital, Montanans can leverage those assets to start new businesses, expand existing ones, and create more good-paying jobs in Missoula and every other community under the Big Sky.
Matt Rosendale
The way I look at – speaking as a woman – I understand what it means to be a daughter, and to be a wife, and to be a mother, and also to be a career woman. The multiple roles that women can play in a society if given the opportunity is really a tremendous asset.
Margaret Chan
The diversity of our cultures is Europe’s greatest asset. We have to preserve this asset. And any political intervention that reduces this diversity is a loss to Europe.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski
Take care of your reputation. It’s your most valuable asset.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Activists need to get the facts right. One of the big assets we have on our side is the truth, and we lose credibility and power if w e’re loose with that.
Annie Leonard
We all know that the Disney brand is our most valuable asset. It is the sum total of our seventy-five years in business, of our reputation, of everything that we stand for.
Michael Eisner
We as central bankers need not be concerned if a collapsing financial asset bubble does not threaten to impair the real economy, its production, jobs and price stability.
Alan Greenspan
Assets are cold.
John Kluge
A great smile is a wonderful asset, but a good heart is pure gold.
Dolly Parton
I have some assets that over time will be worth something. I’ve been in the process of selling others.
Bernard Ebbers
The ability to manage large assets well – it’s like being Michael Jordan or winning the gold in the Olympics; it’s what you aspire to.
Louis Bacon
Flexible approach – will look at ALL asset classes.
Seth Klarman
Don’t buy luxuries until you’ve built the assets to afford them
Robert Kiyosaki
My father gave me a very small loan in 1975, and I built it into a company that’s worth many, many billions of dollars, with some of the greatest assets in the world, and I say that only because that’s the kind of thinking that America needs.
Donald Trump
As costly as it was in the lives of our men and women in uniform, in military assets, and in esteem and pride, Pearl Harbor was a watershed moment for America.
Joe Baca
Many Enron employees lost 70 percent to 90 percent of their retirement assets after the company indicated that it would re-state profit reports.
Elaine Chao
I certainly didn’t reach out to my old assets and ask ’em how they’re doing, although I would have liked to.
Valerie Plame
You have to say that we are again in a massive financial bubble in bonds, in equities, in [other] asset prices that have gone up dramatically.
Marc Faber
Many years ago, Bill Gates said that one day we’d be able to click on the shoes of a character in a TV show and buy them online. Whether that happens or not, are you thinking about new ways to combine your assets in programming, customer knowledge, and technology?
Brian L. Roberts
I always felt that my greatest asset was not my physical ability, it was my mental ability.
Bruce Jenner
Later the Administration wanted me to actually sell all remaining surplus by running the War Assets Corporation. I said I couldn’t do it without some shoe leather.
Stuart Symington
Today people who hold cash equivalents feel comfortable. They shouldn’t. They have opted for a terrible long-term asset, one that pays virtually nothing and is certain to depreciate in value.
Warren Buffett
There’s no such thing as a value company. Price is all that matters. At some price, an asset is a buy, at another it’s a hold, and at another it’s a sell.
Seth Klarman
My biggest asset is my combination of size and speed.
Chad Ochocinco
The risks facing hedge funds are non-linear and more complex than those facing traditional asset classessuch risks are currently not widely appreciated or well-understood
Andrew Lo
When you use Facebook, you’re always logged in, and your identity and relationships – to others, to content, to apps and services – are assets Facebook can use to customize your experience (oh, and your ads).
John Battelle
Let’s face it. I’m not a personality or the handsome actor type. When you have those God-given assets, you don’t have to worry if your acting leaves something to be desired. You can just play yourself on the screen and the public comes flocking to your pictures.
Van Heflin
Beauty is a valuable asset, but it is not the whole cheese.
Ginger Rogers
To a bystander like me, those who made 190 million pounds deliberately underselling the shares of HBOS, in spite of its very strong capital base, and drove it into the bosom of Lloyds TSB Bank, are clearly bank robbers and asset strippers.
John Sentamu
If fees consume more than 1% of your assets annually, you should probably shop for another adviser.
Benjamin Graham
Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone. G.B. Stern “If you count all your assets, you always show a profit.”
Robert Quillen
The president has a right to discuss his national security policies with the public. But that should be done in the light of day without endangering our sources or methods. The public has no need to know details about intelligence assets or special operations units. Such disclosures endanger those who protect us.
Peter T. King
I understand assets. My arm is an asset, and I need to take care of it.
Pat Connaughton
I was, as president and chairman of the board, required by law to verify the veracity of the financial figures, the assets under management, the number of outstanding shares, et cetera.
Matt Bevin
The goal is a society in which the basic social unit is you and your television set. If the kid next door is hungry, it’s not your problem. If the retired couple next door invested their assets badly and are now starving, that’s not your problem either.
Noam Chomsky
The property boom has made us all feel wealthy, but unfortunately it has lulled many of those nearing retirement into a false sense of security.
Noel Whittaker
For we must be one thing or the other, an asset or a liability, the sinew in your wing to help you soar, or the chain to bind you to earth.
Countee Cullen
I built a massive company, a great company, some of the greatest assets anywhere in the world, worth many, many billions of dollars.
Donald Trump
Once money goes into a charity, it is tax exempt, so that’s a benefit you get. And in return, you have to use the assets of the charity to serve the public good. So if Trump is using this money basically to save his businesses, the money isn’t helping people. That’s a violation of the letter and the spirit of law.
David Fahrenthold
Time is one of my most valuable assets.
Bill Anderson
Rs 6500 crore disclosed under compliance window of black money & foreign assets law. People fear the law that has now been created. Stringent provisions will not be diluted despite pressures.
Narendra Modi
It is my deepest conviction that the children should be seen and heard as our most treasured assets.
Nelson Mandela
Peer-to-peer lenders originally sought to attract retail investors to its loan marketplace, but the lack of high-returning assets elsewhere in the market has made these platforms increasingly attractive to major asset managers and hedge funds.
Kayla Tausche
To the extent the dollar gains strength relative to other currencies, assets priced in those other currencies would become cheaper on a dollar basis.
Steve Mnuchin
Some banks won’t make it. Other banks are going to make sure that we strengthen. All deposits are going to be safe for ordinary people, but we’re going to have to bring out some of these bad assets.
Barack Obama
An organization’s success has more to do with clarity of shared purpose, common principles and strength of belief in them than to assets, expertise, operating ability or management competence, important as they may be.
Dee Hock
Most people… find a disorientating mismatch between the long-term nature of their liabilities and the increasingly short-term nature of their assets.
James A. Baldwin
I think physical comedy is an amazing asset because it tells a story that’s more universal than just language and dialogue. I grew up watching Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. They’re very powerful figures in my life.
Josh Gad
I think it’s so important just to have confidence in your body. Everyone knows that confidence is sexy, and it’s knowing your assets, your strengths, and just playing those up.
Marisa Miller
Sitting in stillness has got to be the greatest asset I have in terms of attaining happiness.
Russell Simmons
Art is a form of asset. Hedge-fund managers who have made money fast should diversify into other areas.
Michael Steinhardt
Let us remember that our national unity is a most priceless asset.
Gerald R. Ford
It’s fair to say that, for much of my lifetime, New Zealand certainly was a property-owning democracy and working people, ordinary people, had assets.
Helen Clark
MBA students come out with: ‘My staff is my most important asset.’ Bullshit. Staff is usually your biggest cost. We all employ some lazy bastards who needs a kick up the backside, but no one can bring themselves to admit it.
Michael O’Leary
I think my strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament.
Donald Trump
When Ralph Goodale tried to tax Income Trusts they showed us where they stood, they showed us their attitude towards raiding Seniors hard earned assets and a Conservative government will never allow either of these parties to get away with that.
Stephen Harper
Capital in money form has no citizenship. It is fungible, an asset capable of moving from place to place in a nanosecond.
Eric Kierans
I’m a real positive person. Non-violent. Love everybody. I’m definitely an asset to the world.
Lil B
The drug war isn’t what purports to be. If you look at the whole operation and the tie-in between the American intelligence agencies, these so-called “assets”, the spies on the payroll of the CIA, and drug dealers. Don’t let members of Congress and the media get away with this complacency and distortion!
Jerry Brown
If you do not give 110% in your life, I promise your life will haunt you for the rest of your days. Time is the most valuable asset on Earth, a depreciating asset, don’t waste another moment of life where you are not at your fullest potential getting the most out of the time you have in life.
Greg Plitt
All a singer needs is voice and expression anything else you have is an asset to your profession.
Maxine Powell
I would have to ask the public to choose between a culture of hate or a culture of love. I am sure our poor will pick the latter. With the Marcos assets, we could regain this value of sharing love with one another.
Imelda Marcos
The search for a life-style involves a journey to the interior. This is not altogether a pleasant experience, because you not only have to take stock of what you consider your assets but you also have to take a long look at what your friends call “the trouble with you.” Nevertheless, the journey is worth making.
Quentin Crisp
Unlike cheap stocks, inexpensive asset classes have a lower chance of big drawdowns (broad asset classes don’t go to zero) and a higher probability of average or better returns.
Barry Ritholtz
I think every business, really, has a unique reason for being, unique assets, unique attributes, a unique history. And that can be turned into a very attractive design story, essentially, that consumers can relate to.
Yves Behar
The P2P marketplace extends into other markets where individuals are monetizing underutilized assets. Lodging is one example. Instead of finding a hotel room, in the sharing economy you can rent a spare room from a local resident.
Sam Graves
It’s a great asset to you, on your first film, to bring some people with you from the television world because they understand the speed that you have to work with to get your grand ideas down.
Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
I suspect that one of capitalism’s crucial assets derives from the fact that the imagination of economists, including its critics, lags well behind its own inventiveness, the arbitrariness of its undertaking and the ruthlessness of the way in which it proceeds.
Zygmunt Bauman
JPMorgan Chase are among the most successful global investment banks, most successful global asset managers, and, in the United States, one of the most successful retail and commercial bankers. We do a great job for customers.
Jamie Dimon
Polychain is investing in blockchain assets. We do not invest in private companies or hold shares in private companies. We invest purely in tokens or digital assets, and those include assets that people are familiar with, like bitcoin and ethereum, as well as very early-stage projects.
Olaf Carlson-Wee
People first, then money, then things.
Suze Orman
In the last resort, sheer insight is the greatest asset of all.
Herbert Butterfield
Do not go out first thing after signing a contract and buy assets that are huge compared to the contract signed. Just because you have money for the first time doesn’t mean you have to spend it before you know all the ramifications of buying the assets.
Mark Goulston
Keyboardists whose chief asset is mere technique . . . more often than not astound us with their prowess without ever touching our sensibilities. They overwhelm our hearing without satisfying it and stun the mind without moving it.
Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach
Work hard, work passionately, but apply your most precious asset—time—to what is most meaningful to you.
Randy Komisar
The most important thing you can have is a good strategic asset allocation mix. So, what the investor needs to do is have a balanced, structured portfolio – a portfolio that does well in different environments…. we don’t know that we’re going to win. We have to have diversified bets.
Ray Dalio
Skill at creating, exploiting, and exiting crucial alliances beats ownership of fixed assets
Tom Peters
I mean, what do you think creativity is? Nothing but self-indulgence. And the more self-indulgent it is, the more interesting it becomes. So I think that part of creativity is also falling in love with your own narcissism: accepting it, using it as an asset.
Nicolas Winding Refn
Commit yourself to lifelong learning. The most valuable asset you’ll ever have is your mind and what you put into it.
Brian Tracy

Nancy Dubuc
Case in point: Take adversity and make it an asset.
Donald Trump
We need to empower all women, both financially and socially, to give them the tools to support themselves and their families. We need to start seeing them as contributors to society, as assets, not as objects of pity or, even worse, objects of shame.
Cherie Blair
Rule One. You must know the difference between an asset and a liability, and buy assets. An asset is something that puts money in my pocket. A liability is something that takes money out of my pocket.
Robert Kiyosaki
The biggest revenue target is the preferential rate for long-term capital gains, which raises a perennial question: Why should capital income be taxed at a much lower rate than ordinary income? Capital assets are owned overwhelmingly by the rich.
James B. Stewart
Well I think they broke the mould when they made me and being humble is one of my great assets.
Larry Hagman
CEOs the world over are fond of pointing to their workforce and saying “Our people are our greatest asset.” And yet today, only two out of ten people think their assets are being well used at work.
Marcus Buckingham
What we need to understand is, one, that there are market failures; and two, that there are things like asset bubbles and irrational exuberance. There are periods of booms, bubbles, and manias. These things, if left to themselves, can lead to crashes, to busts, to panics.
Nouriel Roubini
If only I’d known my differentness would be an asset, then my earlier life would have been much easier.
Bette Midler

Joel Salatin
There is not a shortage of assets in northern Syria but a shortage of targets.

Reid Hoffman
Low interest rates benefit individuals or investors who own or want to buy assets; in that regard, they disproportionately benefit wealthier Americans.
John Delaney
The idea that an independent Scotland – having separated assets and liabilities from the rest of the U.K. – would expect the rest of the U.K. to be a lender of last resort, and of course be kind to them, doesn’t make any sense.
Johann Lamont
Infrastructure sector is all about building assets for the country. It is part of nation building.

Douglas Rushkoff

Mark Victor Hansen

Carl Icahn

Mary Bono

Bob Brookmeyer

Harry Levinson
How do we know when irrational exuberance has unduly escalated asset values?

Henry Paulson
I believe that we should own the fruits of our labor and the assets of our creations.
Nipsey Hussle
In the long-term, security comes from an asset you create or acquire, not a position in someone else’s asset.
Chris Guillebeau
Goodness is always an asset. A man who is straight, friendly and useful may never be famous, but he is respected and liked by all who know him. He has laid a sound foundation for success and he will have a worthwhile life.
Herbert Newton Casson
If financial assets no longer work for you at a rate far and above the rate of true wealth creation, then you must work longer for your money.
Bill Gross
I don’t think I have the assets to play the more traditional Bond Girl.
Naomie Harris
Most elderly are retirees with relatively low incomes. But some may possess assets, and they will be classified as poor. As such, the elderly poverty rate could be overstated.
Carrie Lam
With the demise of the biblical religions that have provided the American people with their core values since their country’s inception, we are reverting to the pagan worldview. Trees and animals are venerated, while man is simply one more animal in the ecosystem – and largely a hindrance, not an asset.
Dennis Prager
Not every company went bankrupt. Not every bank needed TARP [Troubled Asset Relief Program]. So I’m very proud that JPMorgan, throughout that time period, was completely steadfast. We bought Bear Stearns because we thought we were helping the situation. We didn’t cut and run.
Jamie Dimon
Never walk away from failure. On the contrary, study it carefully and imaginatively for its hidden assets.

Chanda Kochhar
In every analysis you need to isolate what the real assets are and you must not forget to examine the franchise to do business, to review the character and competence of the management and to estimate the outcome if the whole business had to be turned into cash.
Peter Cundill
How do I define a work of art? It is not an asset in the stock-exchange sense, but a man’s timid attempt to repeat the miracle that the simplest peasant girl is capable of at any time, that of magically producing life out of nothing.
Oskar Kokoschka
Children are the most important asset in a country. For them to become that asset, they must receive education and love from their parents.

Porter Stansberry

Maurice Strong
Private equity firms working closely with venture capitalists and technologists may be able to unlock assets that others have not leveraged and build technology cultures to iterate on solutions that make these assets more productive.
Joe Lonsdale
Quite Franc-ly, I think I am an asset to this world we live in. I know that if I didn’t exist, there would be some truly upset people just waiting for me. A life without Franco is like a kitten without fur. That’s what my reflection told me.
James Franco
For most businesses, America is the most important asset on their balance sheet.
Hillary Clinton
The restructuring theme can be of various kinds. Some amount of debt gets serviced out of cash flows, some gets back-ended and resolved with sale of non-core assets of the company, and some debt gets converted into equity which might today look like a haircut.
Chanda Kochhar
Black-Scholes works for short-term options, but if it’s a long-term option and you think you know something [about the underlying asset], it’s insane to use Black-Scholes.
Charlie Munger
Any substantial tax reform would involve substantial redistributions of tax burdens and substantial changes in asset values, and you need some ‘lubrication’ (i.e., transition rules).
Robert Reischauer
We exist to build the business of our clients. The recommendations we make to them should be the recommendations we would make if we owned their companies, without regard to our own short-term interest. This earns their respect, which is the greatest asset we can have.
David Ogilvy
The deciding differentiator in how you drive LOYALTY lies within your greatest asset….your people.
Don Farrell
More than ever, it’s very apparent that we are strapped for natural resources. We configure and reconfigure to try and find a way to maintain natural assets, when, ultimately, we are overlooking the most abundant, dynamic, and powerful resource we have available to us – our youth.
Ian Somerhalder
The nature of competition is such that any number of people invariably have their eyes on the same prize you do. Recognize your assets and employ them to the best of your ability.
Larry Bird
[In remake] you’ve got to have something new to say, or technology that wasn’t available, or a new chapter that kind of speaks to this generation of fans. They’ve got some unique assets, so we’re certainly discussing those things.
Thomas Tull
Building your own business is the best way to become rich. Then you can begin investing in other assets.
Robert Kiyosaki

Anne M. Mulcahy
I believe that a newspaper is a great civic asset and that ownership is best in the hands of foundations or wealthy families that want to own it for reasons other than maximizing profits. I also believe newspapers should remain in local hands.
Eli Broad

Daphne Oz
Furthermore, a large portion of the assets of leading Russian figures is mixed, meaning that it is not quite clear how to counter this development.
Garry Kasparov
It’s not Utopian to believe that we can create a global registry of financial assets so we know who owns what in different countries.
Thomas Piketty
First, we would reposition UPI by bringing it into the 21st century with new technology. And second would be to better utilize its assets, like the library and archives, which have terrific value.

There is only one way to go: up. I like to find cheap assets with problems. It gives me power.
Mikhail Prokhorov
The Crystal Cathedral Ministries, the assets and the buildings, would still be in the hands of the ministries if my father would have simply walked away. When I accepted the role as the next senior pastor, he had agreed to be an ambassador-at-large and raise funds for the endowment fund. He didn’t do that.
Robert A. Schuller
When I talk about the assets, that was at the beginning of the talks. I was president then. I’m not president now. When I said it, this would be a sign of goodwill to begin the talks.
Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani
[With] closet indexing….you’re paying a manager a fortune and he has 85% of his assets invested parallel to the indexes. If you have such a system, you’re being played for a sucker.
Charlie Munger
I think it’s unfair that people can’t give assets to whoever they want. When I die, my assets can go to my wife. And a gay person – you ought to have a system where maybe you can just say, ‘You can give your assets to anybody you want.’
Foster Friess
I indeed do respect all people for the positives in their life. Sadly, there comes a time of diminishing returns in the balance. At the end of the day, my respect is reserved for those solidly in the asset column of mankind.
Ted Nugent

Vitalik Buterin
Kitty Wells was the first and only Queen of Country Music, no matter what they call the rest of us. She was a great inspiration to me as well as every other female singer in the country music business. In addition to being a wonderful asset to country music, she was a wonderful woman. We will always remember her fondly.
Dolly Parton
The increase in the assets of the Federal Reserve Banks from 143 Million dollars in 1913 to 45 Billion dollars in 1949 went directly to the private stockholders of the [Federal Reserve] banks.
Eustace Mullins
He stepped forward and punched Dorian in the face, hard enough that I heard a thwack. “Ow,” moaned Dorian, wincing from the pain. “My greatest asset.
Richelle Mead
My speed is my greatest asset.
Peter Bondra
I was impressed for the ten thousandth time by the fact that literature illuminates life only for those to whom books are a necessity. Books are unconvertible assets, to be passed on only to those who possess them already.
Anthony Powell
