Americans live under the delusion that enterprise here is both private and free. It may be nominally private, but it’s anything but free. Unfortunately, most people don’t know what freedom is.

Sheldon Richman

Ludwig von Mises
The modern reader (or viewer, or listener: let’s include everybody) is perilously overloaded. His attention is, to use the latest lingo,’targeted’ by powerful forces? Our consciousness is a staging area, a field of operations for all kinds of enterprises, which make free use of it.
Saul Bellow
I get most my information about what’s happening in the United States from reports and studies, which are often in conflict with what you read on the editorial pages, or handouts from right wing institutions like the American Enterprise Institute.

William Monahan

Safra A. Catz
Business is a human enterprise, driven and determined by people.
Keith Ferrazzi
Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.

Lawrence Osborne
The beauty of design ought to be totally incidental to the enterprise itself.
Stephen Metcalf

Jamie Dimon
The corrupt establishment knows that we are a great threat to their criminal enterprise.
Donald Trump
In business, I believe that if you focus only on the journey, you’ll miss the whole point of the enterprise. There has to be a goal, an end game of some kind; otherwise, you’re just spinning your wheels. Yes, the journey is important, but the destination is important, too.
Ivanka Trump
The biggest threat to a better life is the desire to keep the future under control – to make the world predictable by reining in creativity and enterprise. Progress as a neat blueprint, with no deviations and no surprise, may work in children’s cartoons or utopian novels. But it’s just a fantasy.

A person of greater enterprise than discretion, who in embracing an opportunity has formed an unfortunate attachment.

Gerry Spence
Socialism proposes no adequate substitute for the motive of enlightened selfishness that today is at the basis of all human labor and effort, enterprise and new activity.
William Howard Taft
The U.S. government uses cash accounting. That is illegal for any enterprise of any size in America except for the U.S. government. Every for-profit business, every not-for-profit business, every state and local government has to use real accounting except for Uncle Sam.

Clive Barnes
Distrust any enterprise that requires new clothes.
Henry David Thoreau

Tim O’Brien

Milton Friedman
Nothing is more humiliating than to see idiots succeed in enterprises we have failed in.

William O. Douglas
Whether you lead a nation, an enterprise, a community, or a family, we are all in the communication business.
Robin S. Sharma
President Obama has outsourced a major portion of the U.S. space program to the Russians. That’s national policy. Taxpayer money. So let’s stop playing games with this outsourcing distortion and talk about the fact that when we need is a president that knows how to manage big enterprise and create jobs.
John Sununu
So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear. That there is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.
Milton Friedman
In the new conditions created by the global economy, the information revolution and the growth of smart technologies, it is more necessary than ever for all companies to be guided by their rich spiritual inheritance, as spiritual enterprises.

Shelby Steele
On average, an e-commerce client who evolves into a premier enterprise client increases their annual spend by 10 times in that first year.
Jon Oringer
It’s true that private enterprise is extremely flexible, But its only good within very narrow limits. If private enterprise isn’t held in an iron grip it gives birth to people who are no better than beasts, those stock-exchange people with greedy appetites beyond restraint.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The dear girl, I fear, may be contemplating some alarming, disruptive perhaps dangerous project. In which case, I would naturally do all in my power to keep her from any such rash or foolhardy enterprise – unless she wished me to accompany her.

Brent Spiner
I guess the biggest difference between me and many of today’s female graduate students is that a lot of them were raised by mothers with careers, and they got college degrees studying with female professors. Both of those factors make the enterprise of educating yourself for a serious profession seem feasible.
Debra Monroe
Private enterprise can never lead a space frontier. It’s not possible because a space frontier is expensive, it has unknown risks and it has unquantified risks.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
In the software business there are many enterprises for which it is not clear that science can help them; that science should try is not clear either.
Edsger Dijkstra
Let us endeavor to commence every enterprise with a pure view to the glory of God, continue it without distraction, and finish it without impatience.
Francois Fenelon
I’ve criticized President Bush for his failure to use his veto pen. There’s plenty of blame to go around. The question is how to solve problems. It’s not bailouts. What made America great? Free markets, free enterprise, manufacturing, job creation. That’s how we’re gonna do it, not by enlarging government.
Scott Brown
Every day Big Government heaps demands and restrictions upon businesses that sink some enterprises, cause others to direct resources away from serving customers and instead toward jumping through hoops of lawyers and regulators, and prevent other operations from ever getting off the ground.
Joel Miller
Americans want and deserve a broad array of health insurance choices so they can identify those that best fit their own individual or family needs. These choices expand when we allow free enterprise to foster innovation, not smother it with taxes and one-size fits all ideology.
Fred Upton
Happy is the small business that can hire additional employees besides the proprietor; rare is the indie-film enterprise that can be happy in this way. The norm is an unpaid principal with no employees between productions.
Whit Stillman
A few years ago we colonised this place with some of our finest felons, thieves, muggers, alcoholics and prostitutes, a strain of depravity which I believe has contributed greatly to this country’s amazing vigour and enterprise.

Ralph Nader
Anyone who critically analyzes a business learns this: that the success or failure of an enterprise depends usually upon one man.
Louis D. Brandeis
Enterprise is first creativity. You need creativity to see what’s out there and shape it to your advantage. You need creativity to look at the world a little differently. You need creativity to take a different approach, to be different.
Jim Rohn
We have to learn again that science without contact with experiments is an enterprise which is likely to go completely astray into imaginary conjecture.
Hannes Alfven
History as well as life itself is complicated — neither life nor history is an enterprise for those who seek simplicity and consistency.
Jared Diamond
Income is sucked upward to the creditors, who then foreclose on the assets of debtors. This shrinks tax revenue, forcing public budgets into deficit. And when governments are indebted, they becomemore subject to pressure to privatization of public enterprise.
Michael Hudson
We’re learning that, when it comes to enterprise users or otherwise, privacy is very important. Some features might work well for enterprise customers and may not work for consumers. You’ve got to have balance.
Eric Yuan
The man who has no vision will undertake no great enterprise.
Woodrow Wilson
A genuine free enterprise system, without state-enforced artificial scarcities, artificial property rights or subsidies, would be like dynamite at the foundations of corporate power.
Kevin Carson
From my perspective, what I’m really focused on, is making sure that, for the broadest number of Americans possible, limited government and free enterprise, the principles that have truly helped build our country into an exceptional one, is one that is being sold to and appeals to the broadest number of Americans.
Marco Rubio
I made my song a coat Covered with embroideries Out of old mythologies From heel to throat But the fools caught it, Wore it in the world’s eyes As though they’d wrought it. Song, let them take it, For there’s more enterprise In walking naked.
William Butler Yeats
I think that when people are at their best, when they are thinking, reflecting, cogitating, then they are doing philosophy. So I don’t see philosophy as an academic enterprise.
Simon Critchley
Today’s developer is a poor substitute for the committed entrepreneur of the last century for whom the work of architecture represented a chance to celebrate the worth of his enterprise.
Arthur Erickson
The instinct to improve oneself materially is necessary for growth. It is at the fountain of the enterprising spirit which drives private enterprise.
Said Musa
No: war material is life-saving for one’s own people and whoever works and performs in these spheres can be proud of it; here enterprise as a whole finds its highest justification of existence.
Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach
Science is a kind of glorified tailoring enterprise, a method for taking measurements that describe something ? reality ? that may not be understood at all.
Michael Crichton
Educational enterprises do not for any length of time remain immune from the struggle of interests for power which is the dominant feature of social life under a class system.
A. J. Muste
Courage multiplies the chances of success by sometimes making opportunities, and always availing itself of them; and in this sense Fortune may be said to favor fools by those who, however prudent in their opinion, are deficient in valor and enterprise.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Every enterprise is learning and teaching institution. Training and development must be built into it on all levels, training and development that never stop.

Robert Menzies
Warren Berger’s book is a cure for a disease in large enterprises. A More Beautiful Question provides a framework to help leaders ask the most important questions—which is one of the most fundamental characteristics of a great leader—while sharing inspiring stories to show the incredible power of this concept.
Jim Stengel
A program whose basic thesis is, not that the system of free enterprise for profit has failed in this generation, but that it has not yet been tried!
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I’ve never been in the enterprise where your customers are your partners. It was always, you had customers, and you had partners.
Diane Greene
Free enterprise cannot be justified as being good for business. It can be justified only as being good for society.
Peter Drucker
We need to create an enterprise culture, a society where successful entrepreneurs are respected and admired, not treated with suspicion and disdain. And in which we see less envy of other peoples’ achievements and mistrust of commerce, and a greater readiness to get out there and join in the process.
Norman Tebbit
Free enterprise has done more to lift people out of poverty, to help build a strong middle class, to help educate our kids, and to make our lives better than all the programs of government combined.

John Divola
Today a thousand doors of enterprise are open to you, inviting you to useful work.
Grenville Kleiser
In perpetrating a revolution, there are two requirements: someone or something to revolt against and someone to actually show up and do the revolting. Dress is usually casual and both parties may be flexible about time and place, but if either faction fails to attend, the whole enterprise is likely to come off badly.
Woody Allen
We used to think that the enterprise was the hardest customer to satisfy, but we were wrong. It turns out, consumers are harder than the enterprise because the consumer will not give you a second chance.
Eric Schmidt
U.K. aid spending in India is that it ensures that we are able to work with our partners to develop their markets, business and enterprise, to boost labour standards and rights and, ultimately, to boost the incomes of the poorest which, in the long term, boosts demand for British goods and services.
Barry Gardiner
Our upside down welfare state is socialism for the rich, free enterprise for the poor.
William O. Douglas
The domination of capitalism globally depends today on the existence of a Chinese Communist party that gives delocalised capitalist enterprises cheap labour to lower prices and deprive workers of the rights of self-organisation.
Jacques Ranciere
The growing role of enterprise social media, plus the growing budgets and authority of CMOs entrusted with choosing the best platforms, translates into an exciting future for apps that harness social potential for large companies.

Leonardo da Vinci
No worthy enterprise can be done by us without continual plodding and wearisomeness to our faint and sensitive abilities.
John Milton
Self-reliance – that’s a dirty word to Democrats. They want people to believe that self-reliance means you don’t do anything with anybody. They don’t want it thought of as accepting responsibility for one’s life. Enterprise. Imagination. Independence. Entrepreneurism.
Rush Limbaugh
To recruit staff, I traveled all over the country talking with people who had been working on one or another aspect of the atomic-energy enterprise and people in radar work, for example, and underwater sound, telling them about the job, the place that we are going to, and enlisting their enthusiasm.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Nothing in these abstract economic models actually works in the real world. It doesn’t matter how many footnotes they put in, or how many ways they tinker around the edges. The whole enterprise is totally rotten at the core: it has no relation to reality.
Noam Chomsky
But if we have been willing to give our lives to this enterprise, which is for the honour of our country, I appeal to our countrymen to see that those who depend on us are properly cared for.
Robert Falcon Scott
If there could’ve ever been a magical time to build an enterprise software company, now is absolutely that time.
Aaron Levie
Whether we look at capitalism, taxes, business, or government, the data show a clear and consistent pattern: 70 percent of Americans support the free enterprise system and are unsupportive of big government.
Arthur C. Brooks
Science is a cooperative enterprise spanning the generations. It’s the passing of a torch from teacher to student to teacher. A community of minds, reaching back to antiquity and forward to the stars.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
For Lou Ann, life itself was a life-threatening enterprise.
Barbara Kingsolver
System uptime, data protection, and identity theft are weighty issues. It takes real ingenuity to out-think the fraudsters who are trying to steal identities and hack into enterprise systems. The 12 smart companies that debuted security solutions today at DEMO have designed serious, and seriously clever, innovations.
Chris Shipley
It is we ourselves that we have to think about, no one else. That is the way the saints worked. They paid attention to what they were doing, and if others were attracted to them by their enterprise, why, well and good. But they looked to themselves first of all.
Dorothy Day
I say beware of all enterprises that require new clothes, and not rather a new wearer of clothes.
Henry David Thoreau
I think it’s smart to always keep an eye on the companies that sit within incubator communities, which bring together the skills and expertise needed to grow an enterprise.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
Your normal Wall Street big-swinging Richard has enough of a lingering moral compass to at least tell himself that his wizardry benefits somebody or something besides himself. You know, his cleverness makes capital markets more efficient. It provides credit to productive enterprise. Whatever.
Tina Brown
The increasing importance of Sydney must in some measure be attributed to the flourishing condition of the colony itself, to the industry of its farmers, to the successful enterprise of its merchants, and to particular local causes.
Charles Sturt
Yes, the disruption of the Internet can be blamed for the destruction of the business model that once made journalism a thriving, well-paying enterprise, but it has also created an array of new tools for reporting. Somebody will eventually figure out how to make online newspapers profitable – I hope.
David Horsey
Thoughtfully assessing and addressing enterprise risk and placing a high value on corporate transparency can protect the one thing we cannot afford to lose: trust.
Dale E. Jones
And all the time – such is the tragic comedy of our situation – we continue to clamor for those very qualities we are rendering impossible. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.
C. S. Lewis
For the blue-collar worker, the driving force behind change was factory automation using programmable machine tools. For the office worker, it’s office automation using computer technology: enterprise-resource-planning systems, groupware, intranets, extranets, expert systems, the Web, and e-commerce.
Tom Peters
I think that the big challenge of the 2020s for the country, and for the Conservative party, is to win the fight for free enterprise and the free society. This is under threat like at no other time in my lifetime. And the way that you do that is by demonstrating the benefits of a free market society.
Matt Hancock
As the owner of the Arison Group, a philanthropic and business enterprise that spans across 40 countries in 5 continents, my ongoing challenge is to bridge the gap between what I envision and its understanding and practical implementation. The Arison Group operates to realize the overall vision of Doing Good.
Shari Arison
Business isn’t some disembodied bloodless enterprise. Profit is fine – a sign that the customer honors the value of what we do. But “enterprise” ( a lovely word ) is about heart. About beauty. It’s about art. About people throwing themselves on the line. It’s about passion and the selfless pursuit of an ideal.
Tom Peters
[To the editor of the Harlan, Kentucky, Daily Enterprise, as a kindergartener:] I know everything that goes on in this town, and if you give me a job so will you.
Maxine Cheshire
The New Deals enmity for that system of free and competitive private enterprise which we call capitalism was fundamental.
Garet Garrett
I can’t think of another enterprise other than being a homeowner that can’t have its debt restructured in bankruptcy. Corporations can but a homeowner can’t? Now with securitization the homeowner can’t go to the owner of the loan and work things out.
Eli Broad
Foreign policy is an explicitly amoral enterprise.
Samantha Power
There is some confusion because we only recently began our marketing. We’re in an era were people need to think about business processes and applications horizontally…We need to think of the enterprise not as an island of stand-alone technology.
Carly Fiorina
I think Rick Berman just called me and asked me if I wanted to do the show [Star Trek: Enterprise], and he said they’d write an arc if I’d do it.
Brent Spiner
The NFL is such a large, multibillion dollar enterprise with fan loyalty because they have provided not only entertainment for sports fans, but memories, good memories, family memories to these fans, that can only bring about good will.
Wendell Pierce
If General Motors is worth $60 a share to an investor it must be because the full common-stock ownership of this gigantic enterprise as a whole is worth 43 million (shares) times $60, or no less than $2,600 million.
Benjamin Graham
For myself, I have but little confidence in any business, or enterprise, or investment, that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.
Robert Green Ingersoll
If all you think we need to do to get this economy going and get this country on the right track is to cut government and reduce taxes, you don’t understand America. America is a moral enterprise, not an economic enterprise.
Rick Santorum
However, however, if the goal is to abandon America’s free enterprise economy, if the goal is to convert America into a submissive member of the international community, if the goal is not to fix America, but to change America, then they want leaders that are going to come up here and fight it every step of the way.
Marco Rubio
I approach stories as a private educational enterprise: I want to learn about something. I teach myself through research, reporting, and thinking, and then, when I feel like I know the story, I tell it to readers.
Susan Orlean
I realize that Kenya and America are very different, but experiences like this warned me that my own favorite beliefs in the miracles of free enterprise and the boundless opportunities to be had in America were largely untrue.
Chris Coons
The enterprise of America precedes that of Europe, as the industry of England precedes that of the rest of Europe.
Benjamin Disraeli
My childhood was a mix of ballet classes and debating society. I liked arguing. As a teenager, I wanted to be an author. Later on, inspired by Young Enterprise and the Body Shop founder Anita Roddick, I decided I wanted to go into business.
Jo Swinson
United thoughts and counsels, equal hope And hazard in the glorious enterprise.
John Milton
The treasury could fill old bottles with banknotes and bury them..and leave it to private enterprises on well-tried principles of laissez-faire to dig the notes up again.
John Maynard Keynes
It’s not going to be easy; Enterprise IT has spent decades growing a defensive culture based on the premise that you only get noticed when you screw up, so that must be avoided at all costs.
Tim Bray
It is a grand thing to rise in the world. The ambition to do so is the very salt of the earth. It is the parent of all enterprise, and the cause of all improvement.
Anthony Trollope
Unfortunately, corruption is widespread in government agencies and public enterprises.
George Papandreou
For a long time, to obtain enterprise customers, I concealed the fact that I owned the company. I never lied about it, but I never volunteered that information. My business card didn’t even have a title
Rebecca Enonchong
If you have worker-owned and worker-managed enterprises, you’ve got a different sociopolitical system.
Noam Chomsky
I had accepted a position as a business analyst at Deloitte Consulting in New York. But before I went into that workforce, I decided to take a year off and went to India to do a social enterprise fellowship. It wasn’t the best fit, but that was where a TV show in Korea found me and invited me to first come perform.
Eric Nam
God intends that everyone who has embraced the gospel become a part of the great enterprise of spreading the gospel.
Jerry Bridges
We also need to reduce corporate tax rates. This applies to small, medium and large businesses. At 35 percent, we have the second highest corporate rates in the world. It restricts the growth of small enterprises that need to plow capital back into their businesses and forces companies and jobs to move overseas.
Meg Whitman
For American foreign aid to become more effective, it must embrace the power of partnerships, access the transformative nature of free enterprise, and leverage the abundant resources that can come from the private sector.
Mitt Romney
What you need if you want jobs are small and medium sized enterprises, local initiatives, labour intensive work, community development, service providers and the like.
Susan George
I have resolved on an enterprise that has no precedent and will have no imitator. I want to set before my fellow human beings a man in every way true to nature; and that man will be myself.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Whoever would undertake some atrocious enterprise should act as if it were already accomplished should impose upon himself a future as irrevocable as the past.
Jorge Luis Borges
In the history of enterprise, most of the protagonists of major new products and companies began their education
George Gilder
The community of developers whose work you see on the Web, who probably don’t know what ADO or UML or JPA even stand for, deploy better systems at less cost in less time at lower risk than we see in the Enterprise. This is true even when you factor in the greater flexibility and velocity of startups.
Tim Bray
Today, the Indian government is trying to present privatization as the alternative to the state, to public enterprise. But privatization is only a further evolution of the centralized state, where the state says that they have the right to give the entire power production in Maharashtra to Enron.
Arundhati Roy
There is hardly any activity, any enterprise, which is started out with such tremendous hopes and expectations, and yet which fails so regularly, as love.
Erich Fromm
It is one thing to open job opportunities. It is another to train people to fill them, or to persuade American enterprise to seek Negro as well as white applicants.
Robert Kennedy
The native hue of resolution is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought; and enterprises of great pitch and moment, With this regard, their currents turn awry, and lose the name of action.
William Shakespeare
If your company disappeared, would it leave a gaping hole that could not easily be filled by any other enterprise on the planet?
James C. Collins
I will spend the next four years rebuilding the foundation of a opportunity society led by free people and free enterprises.
Mitt Romney
To try to do something which is inherently impossible is always a corrupting enterprise.
Michael Joseph Oakeshott
He’s been on vacation for a year and month. Captain Kirk never left the helm when the Enterprise was under attack.
Eddie Griffin
Many textbooks fail to present students with both sides of an issue. Students are being pushed toward an education that demonizes free enterprise while advocating top-down government, deficit spending and class warfare.
Charlie Kirk
If you look at the top 10 enterprise software companies, a lot of them are important but irrelevant companies. It’s really important to be relevant and important.
Marc Benioff
I believe that the free enterprise system is the greatest engine of prosperity the world’s ever known.
Barack Obama
To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition, the end to which every enterprise and labor tends, and of which every desire prompts the prosecution.
Samuel Johnson
Physics is perceived as a lonesome, nerdy kind of enterprise that has very little to do with human feelings and the things that excite people day-to-day about each other. Yet physicists in their own working environment are very social creatures.
Leonard Susskind
Extremists often derive their inspiration from literal interpretations of texts that should rightly be read not as Associated Press reports from the ancient world, but as theological and literary enterprises requiring independent intellectual assessment.
Jon Meacham
Former brownfields, depressed urban areas, and hard-hit rural towns blossom as eco-industrial parks, green enterprise zones, and eco-villages. Farmers’ markets, community co-ops, and mobile markets get fresh, organic produce to the people who can’t afford to shop at health-food stores.
Van Jones
Social embedded business processes that solve concrete needs are key to enterprise social collaboration.
Marc Benioff
Entrepreneurs are risk takers, willing to roll the dice with their money or reputation on the line in support of an idea or enterprise. They willingly assume responsibility for the success or failure of a venture and are answerable for all its facets.
Victor Kiam
At one point in time, you had to choose, ‘Do you want to do consumer or enterprise?’ But the reality today is a bit different: Enterprises are a collection of consumers.
Tim Cook
I guess my view is I believe less governance is best governance and that government should not do what the free enterprise and private enterprise and indidividual entrepreneurship and the states can do.
John McCain
Customers will always be nervous about lock-in, and I think the experience they had particularly with a company like Oracle, where it’s a really hard thing to get out of, and they’re so hostile to their customers, that I think it’s a concern for every enterprise.
Andy Jassy
We need a leader who understands the moral case for free enterprise.
Sher Valenzuela
As time goes on, I get more and more convinced that the right method of investment is to put fairly large sums into enterprises which one thinks one knows something about and in the management of which one thoroughly believes.
John Maynard Keynes
Salaries and wages must reflect the reality of the enterprise’s economic performance; deviations from the planned performance should be reflected in pay.
Samora Machel
More material progress has been made during the past one hundred and fifty years under the American system of business enterprise than during all the preceding centuries in world history. This record of achievement is a challenge to those who would radically change that system.
Karl Taylor Compton
Over a wide field of our economy it is still the better course to rely on the nineteenth century’s “hidden hand” than to thrust clumsy bureaucratic fingers into its sensitive mechanism. In particular, we cannot afford to damage its mainspring, freedom of competitive enterprise.
John James Cowperthwaite
In a free enterprise, the community is not just another stakeholder, but is in fact the very purpose of its existence.
Jamsetji Tata
Enslave a man and you destroy his ambition, his enterprise, his capacity. In the constitution of human nature, the desire of bettering one’s condition is the mainspring of effort. The first touch of slavery snaps this spring.
Horace Mann
Every one of our greatest national treasures, our liberty, enterprise, vitality, wealth, military power, global authority, flow from a surprising source: our ability to give thanks.
Tony Snow
The unbought grace of life, the cheap defence of nations, the nurse of manly sentiment and heroic enterprise, is gone!
Edmund Burke
The campaign was a more significant training ground than I think people give it credit for. By the time I got here, I think I had a pretty good sense of what was required. But the circumstances in which I came in were different than most executives, right? The enterprise was in the midst of a major crisis.
Barack Obama
The New Deal’s enmity for that system of free and competitive private enterprise which we call capitalism was fundamental.
Garet Garrett
I spoke to a bunch of University of Houston students and said, ‘One of the beauties of the free enterprise system we have in this country is that there’s capital that people are willing to put at risk for new ventures and startups.’
Oliver Luck
The single most important thing to remember about any enterprise is that there are no results inside its walls. The result of a business is a satisfied customer.
Peter Drucker
Since politics fundamentally should be a moral enterprise, the church in this sense has something to say about politics.
Pope Benedict XVI
I would rather label the whole enterprise of setting a biological value upon groups for what it is: irrelevant, intellectually unsound, and highly injurious.
Stephen Jay Gould
If you just got enough expertise and enough special techniques and read up enough, then you could shape a child into the kind of adult you wanted. There’s almost this kind of competitive enterprise. That picture is the picture I think people often imply when they use the word “parenting”.
Alison Gopnik
Our habitual experience is a complex of failure and success in the enterprise of interpretation. If we desire a record of uninterpreted experience, we must ask a stone to record its autobiography.
Alfred North Whitehead
Sustaining innovation is the lifeblood of any enterprise. It is the time when we capitalize upon, and recover from, all the disruptive change prior. Most of the operating profits in the world come from sustaining innovation. Much of the market capitalization gains, on the other hand, come from disruptive innovations.
Geoffrey Moore
No other people have a government more worthy of their respect and love or a land so magnificent in extent, so pleasant to look upon, and so full of generous suggestion to enterprise and labor.
Benjamin Harrison
A well-worn adage advises those who set out upon a great enterprise to count the cost, yet some of the greatest enterprises have succeeded because the people who undertook them did not count the cost.
Thomas Huxley
Im an American. Weve translated democracy and brotherhood and equality into enterprise and opportunity and success – and thats getting Americanised.
Susan Glaspell
As a business man running a huge enterprise, it wouldn’t be smart for me to discuss my potential business decisions with a journalistic tabloid. That being said, I certainly aim to make waves in the wrestling world, and continue to raise Villain Enterprises stock through the roof.
Marty Scurll
There’s a very good reason that governments aren’t supposed to compete with private-enterprise companies. Governments have monopolies on certain things, like eminent domain and deadly force.
P. J. O’Rourke
Rather than being an impediment, NASA can and should be the driver of commerce, the provider of the technology necessary to make some big money in space. The truth is that private enterprise already has a huge presence up there.
Homer Hickam
He that hath wife and children hath given hostages to fortune; for they are impediments to great enterprises, either of virtue or mischief.
Francis Bacon
God is the silent partner in ALL great enterprises.
Abraham Lincoln
The net effect of increasing scale, centralization of capital, vertical integration and diversification within the corporate form of enterprise has been to replace the ‘invisible hand’ of the market by the ‘visible hand’ of the managers.
David Harvey
Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise, every expanded prospect.
James Madison
Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.
Gene Roddenberry
A little (or more) boat burning would do many enterprises a world of good.
Tom Peters
The philanthropic tradition is older than democracy, older than Christianity, and older than higher education. It gives form and purpose to personal and social life that cannot be provided by the self-interest of economic enterprise or required by the mandate of political institutions.
Robert L. Payton
Capitalism can be helpful, but it can also be destructive when it’s used by huge enterprises worldwide for the sale of weapons.
Judy Collins
I believe that without free enterprise there can be no democracy.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
In ‘The Future and Its Enemies,’ I argue that individual creativity and enterprise are not only personally satisfying but socially good, producing progress and happiness. For celebrating creativity and happiness, I have been called a fascist by critics on both coasts.
Virginia Postrel
Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell have made no secret of their desire to stamp out individualism and enterprise.
Liz Truss
If ardent passions push not men on to lofty enterprise, calm wisdom never will accomplish it.
Vittorio Alfieri
Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.
Thomas Jefferson
The principle of real leadership ignored, the immortal objects of society forgotten, practical conservatism degenerated into mere laudation of private enterprise, economic policy almost wholly surrendered to special interests.
Russell Kirk
I liken the current situation to that of the Starship Enterprise. The shields are up and the Klingons are shooting at us and every time they land a punch they are sapping our power.
Rupert Lowe
I’m a pro-growth, small-government conservative with a background in free enterprise.
Doug Ducey
I see myself as a bit of a capitalist really – I like enterprise and making money.
Steph McGovern
No matter how deeply wedded one may be to the free enterprise system (and I, for one, am wedded for life), one has to accept the need for positive government; one has to consider government action on a sizable scale as desirable rather than as a necessary evil.
Peter Drucker
Taxpayer money should not have to be spent to save a misguided and mismanaged enterprise.
Henry Paulson
Marriage is a fight to the death. Before contracting it, the two parties concerned implore the benediction of Heaven because to promise to love each other forever is the rashest of enterprises.
Honore de Balzac
Gene Roddenberry continually reminded us that the Star Trek Enterprise was a metaphor for starship Earth. And the strength in this starship came from its diversity, coming together and working in concert as a team. That is the strength of our countries, Canada and the United States. We are nations of diversity.
George Takei
Having despised us, it is not strange that Americans should seek to render us despicable; having enslaved us, it is natural that they should strive to prove us unfit for freedom; having denounced us as indolent, it is not strange that they should cripple our enterprises.
Frederick Douglass
Canada needs to dismantle its public health-care system and allow private enterprise to get involved and turn a profit.
Sarah Palin
All inconsiderate enterprises are impetuous at first, but soon lanquish.
[Lat., Omnia inconsulti impetus coepta, initiis valida, spatio languescunt.]
While I am a great believer in the free enterprise system and all that it entails, I am an even stronger believer in the right of our people to live in a clean and pollution-free environment.
Barry Goldwater
The Accenture hybrid class solution for Microsoft Azure will provide a new wave for our clients to transform to a truly enterprise wide hybrid cloud environment.
Pierre Nanterme
Co-innovation between a startup and an enterprise works best when each party fills a gap in the other’s capabilities and when they share equitably in both the work and the rewards.
Maciej Kranz
‘Harry Potter’ opened so many doors for young adult literature. It really did convince the publishing industry that writing for children was a viable enterprise. And it also convinced a lot of people that kids will read if we give them books that they care about and love.
Rick Riordan
Every century or so, fundamental changes in the nature of consumption create new demand patterns that existing enterprises can’t meet.
Shoshana Zuboff
I wished to go completely outside and to make a symbolic start for my enterprise of regenerating the life of humankind within the body of society and to prepare a positive future in this context.
Joseph Beuys
For many on the Right, America is to be routinely celebrated because it stands for free enterprise and global power; for many on the Left, America merits perpetual suspicion and censure for the self-same reasons.
Linda Colley
The American experience stirred mankind from discovery to exploration. From the cautious quest for what they knew (or thought they knew) was out there, into an enthusiastic reaching to the unknown. These are two substantially different kinds of human enterprise.
Daniel J. Boorstin
Americans assume that we never go to war to sustain our wealth, because war must be understood as a moral enterprise commensurate with our being a democracy.
Stanley Hauerwas
One day, out of irritation, I said, you know all of those years with the Royal Shakespeare Company, all those years of playing kings and princes and speaking black verse, and bestriding the landscape of England was nothing but a preparation for sitting in the captain’s chair of the Enterprise.
Patrick Stewart
…those who are guilty of such sweeping criticisms [of the rich] do not know how many people would be made poor, and how much sufering would result, if wealthy people were to part all at once with any large proportion of their wealth in a way to disorganize and cripple great business enterprises.
Booker T. Washington
There is a tradition that the church represents, without which we wouldn’t have the church, that’s all about diving deep beneath the surface of the culture and finding those timeless, eternal truths that the whole Christian enterprise is rooted in. And one of those is that you don’t come to God at 180 miles an hour.
Parker J. Palmer
I want to go where I can be of the most service to the general enterprise.
Ezra Cornell
My high-tech aversion caused me to make fun of the typical biotech enterprise: $100 million in cash from selling shares, one hundred Ph.D.’s, 99 microscopes, and zero revenues.
Peter Lynch
Food that is necessary for man’s existence is as sacred as life itself. Everything that is indispensable for its preservation is the common property of society as a whole. It is only the surplus that is private property and can be safely left to individual commercial enterprise.
Maximilien Robespierre
We’ve shown the world that New York can never be defeated, because of its dynamic and diverse population and because it embodies the spirit of enterprise and the love of liberty. And because no matter who you are, if you believe in yourself and your dream, New York will always be the place for you.
Michael Bloomberg
Much of the misgiving that Muslims feel for the West stems from our strong emphasis on freedom, always a risky enterprise. I’ve heard some say they would rather rear their children in a closely guarded Islamic society than in the United States, where freedom so often leads to decadence.
Philip Yancey
Every nation on the Earth that embraces market economics and the free enterprise system is pulling millions of its people out of poverty. The free enterprise system creates prosperity, not denies it.
Marco Rubio
I can certainly imagine a day where task workers, enterprise workers no longer communicate via email but instead use some social vehicle that looks a lot like consumer social networks we see today.
Peter Levine
‘Socialize’ means we turn more of our personal powers over to Big Brother, not free enterprise.
Robert Kiyosaki
We must beware of trying to build a society in which nobody counts for anything except a politician or an official, a society where enterprise gains no reward and thrift no privileges
Winston Churchill
Free enterprise means that the more enterprising you are, the freer you are.
Mark Victor Hansen
Majesty is a thing of beauty to behold, whatever the particular enterprise.
Frank Deford
We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.
C. S. Lewis
What kind of competition is there in your body? Suppose your brain said ‘ I’m the most important organ, and the liver said ‘I am, and I want to go in a free enterprise-system.’ В You would rot away in a month, if every organ of your body, were out for itself.
Jacque Fresco
Success in the long run has less to do with finding the best idea, organizational structure, or business model for an enterprise, than with discovering what matters to us as individuals.
Jerry I. Porras
What I responded to, on the page, was the way a poem could liberate, by means of a word’s setting, through subtleties of timing, of pacing, that word’s full and surprising range of meaning. It seemed to me that simple language best suited this enterprise.
Louise Gluck
Imperialist enterprise draws political consequences.
C. L. R. James
When I go back to the core of my childhood, my cousin Lucy seems always to be in the peripheral vision of my memories. She is off to one side, always off to one side, with a book, with a scheme or a project or an enterprise.
Martin Amis
All great enterprises are self-supporting.
Henry David Thoreau
So many of the major decisions that affect the entire future of your enterprise happen during its first year in business. In fact, most don’t make it because they don’t know how to get the resources they need to survive.
Jay Samit
Luck is earned. Luck is working so hard at your craft, service or enterprise that sooner or later you get a break.
Paul Hawken
Free enterprise, individual opportunity, limited government. They made America great; only they can keep America strong.
Reince Priebus
Trickle-down economics doesn’t work, but we need the power and innovation that comes from the free enterprise system. There’s no way we’re going to decarbonize the American economy without innovation and the profit motive. It’s just not gonna happen.
Tim Ryan
When I was a very young actor, I cruised around in a pretty cool vehicle called the Starship Enterprise.
George Takei
The difference between love and logic is that in the eyes of a lover, a toad can be a prince, whereas in the analysis of a logistician, the lover would have to prove that the toad was a prince, an enterprise destined to dull the shine of many a passion.
Tom Robbins
I don’t think anyone is better than Amazon, and all the new generation of enterprise companies are basically copying them.
Aneel Bhusri
They were nicely written and nicely directed episodes [Star Trek: Enterprise]. I enjoyed working with Scott [Bakula]. So it was good to do, and, as you said, it did serve to enhance the Soong legacy.
Brent Spiner
What the Democrats have to understand is that while we do need to reform our regulation and we do need more restrictions, it is true that it is capitalism and free enterprise and companies that create jobs and wealth for every American.
Michael Bloomberg
Eugenics was central to the entire Nazi enterprise, joined with romantic nativist and racist myths of the pure-bred Nordic. The emphasis on ‘blood’ called for a purifying of the nation’s gene pool, so that Germans could regain the nobility and greatness of their genetically pure forebears.
Alison Thompson
Enterprise Systems, I mean. And not just a little bit, either. Orders of magnitude wrong. Billions and billions of dollars worth of wrong. Hang-our-heads-in-shame wrong. It’s time to stop the madness.
Tim Bray
We are talking about capital-intensive enterprises, so market certainty is the key. Investors and entrepreneurs have to know that there will be a guaranteed U.S. renewable energy market in which they can compete. Otherwise, they will create the next generation of green companies and green jobs in Asia, not here.
Van Jones
We often say that we fear no invasion from the south, but the armies of the south have already crossed the border – American enterprise, American capital is taking rapid possession of our mines and our water power, our oil areas and our timber limits.
Sara Jeannette Duncan
Government-to-government aid rests on socialistic assumptions and promotes socialism and stagnation, whereas private foreign investment rest on capitalist assumptions and promotes private enterprise and maximum economic growth.
Henry Hazlitt
Even if my strength should fail, my daring will win me praise: in might enterprises even the will to succeed is enough.
It is difficult to begin without borrowing, but perhaps it is the most generous course thus to permit your fellowmen to have an interest in your enterprise.
Henry David Thoreau
War. What was it about the prospect of some bloody enterprises that reduced men to the level of animals?
David Gemmell
The enterprise can fulfill its human and social functions only if it prospers as a business.
Peter Drucker
Lovemaking surely must be, for human beings at our present state of development, one of the more private enterprises. Who would want a witness to that entire self-abandonment and helplessness?
Katherine Anne Porter
Government, possessing the power to create and issue currency and credit as money and enjoying the right to withdraw both currency and credit from circulation by taxation and otherwise, need not and should not borrow capital at interest as a means of financing government work and public enterprises.
Abraham Lincoln
The death of the MG marks the end of one of the most perfect products of free enterprise, born out of the voracious will to succeed of one man and the burgeoning market for middle-class status symbols. The car first appeared as a souped-up Morris Oxford in 1923 when it won the Land’s End Rally.
Nick Davies
The rationale for the vast network of government welfare programs as well as regulation and control over private enterprise is based on the socialist analysis of the market economy.
Richard Ebeling
Provided that societies stay mindful of the challenges that capitalism creates and never forget the paramount importance of inclusion and equal opportunity, we can and should celebrate the miracle of free enterprise-and the billions of souls it has helped free from desperate poverty.
Dalai Lama
Free to set our own laws, Brexit should act as a catalyst for a new era of prosperity for an outward-looking U.K. ambitious in removing barriers to trade, enterprise and economic growth.
Priti Patel
Every diminution of the public burdens arising from taxation gives to individual enterprise increased power and furnishes to all the members of our happy confederacy new motives for patriotic affection and support.
Andrew Jackson
Free enterprise has done more to reduce poverty than all the government programs dreamed up by Democrats.
Ronald Reagan
When we live the 21st-century good life, almost every aspect of it is predicated on not looking at the implications of what we’re up to. Happiness at this point has a lot to do with not looking, so you don’t feel complicit in some vast and awful enterprise.
Paolo Bacigalupi
The genius of America is production; and a large percentage of our productive enterprises are headed by men who have come up from the worker’s bench.
William S. Knudsen
We need women who are at the head of a boardroom, like at the head of the White House, at the head of kind of major scientific enterprises so that little girls everywhere can then think, you know what? I can do that, I want to do that, I will do that.
Chelsea Clinton
Money has always been framed as a public good, one that must be stewarded by governments, when in fact, it is a private enterprise like any other which is fueled by personal agendas, regulation, and the quest for geopolitical hegemony.
Meltem Demirors
Politicization – the shading of analysis to fit prevailing policy or politics – is the harshest criticism one can make of an intelligence organization. It strikes beyond questions of competence to the fundamental ethic of the enterprise, which is, or should be, truth telling.
Michael Hayden
All foreign companies registered in China are Chinese enterprises. Their innovation, production and business operations in China enjoy the same treatment as Chinese enterprises.
Hu Jintao
Are not the worst examples of architecture to be found in private enterprise in cheap jerry-built homes?
Hugh Dalton
Unemployment, with its injustice for the man who seeks and thirsts for employment, who begs for labour and cannot get it, and who is punished for failure he is not responsible for by the starvation of his children–that torture is something that private enterprise ought to remedy for its own sake.
David Lloyd George
Solitude and privacy have become more essential to the individual; but modern enterprise and invention have, through invasions upon his privacy, subjected him to mental pain and distress.
Samuel D. Warren
Better service for the customer is for the good of the public, and this is the true purpose of enterprise.
Konosuke Matsushita
Co-operative enterprises provide the organisational means whereby a significant proportion of humanity is able to take into its own hands the tasks of creating productive employment, overcoming poverty and achieving social integration.
Boutros Boutros-Ghali
Americans chose a free enterprise system designed to provide a quality of opportunity, not compel a quality of results. And that is why this is only place in the world where you can open up a business in the spare bedroom of your home.
Marco Rubio
There’s no limit to what free men and free women in a free market with free enterprise can accomplish when people are free to follow their dream.
Jack Kemp
It’s hard to think of another field in which experience is considered a liability and those who know the least about the nuts and bolts of an enterprise are embraced as experts.
Pedro Noguera
Modern love is the enterprise that everyone wants to be a part of, yet there’s a fifty percent divorce rate in round one and a sixty-five percent divorce rate in round two.
Esther Perel
If you want to get rich with a tax free enterprise that sells nothing, start a church.
Bill Maher
Through want of enterprise and faith men are where they are, buying and selling and spending their lives like servants.
Henry David Thoreau
I graduated from Kellogg. I studied social enterprise.
Roshni Nadar
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.
Emile Zola
Tuff Gong is the name of our father’s enterprise, and we’re continuing his legacy.
Rohan Marley
The Internet will make every enterprise a publisher.
Steve Case
In private enterprises men may advance or recede, whereas they who aim at empire have no alternative between the highest success and utter downfall.
It takes time to build a corporate work of art. It takes time to build a life. And it takes time to develop and grow. So give yourself, your enterprise, and your family the time they deserve and the time they require.
Jim Rohn
Praise, of all things, is the most powerful excitement to commendable actions, and animates us in our enterprises.
Jean de la Bruyere
In the enterprise, the trend is towards smaller, more powerful standardized systems where Dell is uniquely positioned.
Kevin B. Rollins
Republican Party is the party that stands for the people who are trying to start a business out of the spare bedroom of their home, who are trying to give their kids a better life. And the only way that’s possible is through the America free enterprise system.
Marco Rubio
To want a job that exercises a man’s capacities in an enterprise useful to society, is utopian anarcho-syndicalism; it is labor invading the domain of management. No labor leader has entertained such a thought in our generation. Management has the “sole prerogative” to determine the products.
Paul Goodman
The free enterprise system does not leave people behind.
Marco Rubio
When the time comes to start building deep space transports and refueling rocket tankers, it will be the commercial industry that steps up, not another government-owned, government-managed enterprise.
Buzz Aldrin
Filmmaking, like sex, isn’t a polite enterprise. It involves a lot of mess and the bottom line is, if somebody ain’t screaming, you’re not doing your job.
James Woods
Speculators may do no harm as bubbles on a steady stream of enterprise. But the position is serious when enterprise becomes a bubble on a whirlpool of speculation. When the capital development of a country becomes a by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill done.
John Maynard Keynes
To cherish and stimulate the activity of the human mind, by multiplying the objects of enterprise, is not among the least considerable of the expedients, by which the wealth of a nation may be promoted.
Alexander Hamilton
Governments never supply prosperity.В  At best, they can facilitate it, by allowing the free enterprise system to work.В  Usually they
suppress it.
Randy Gage
We do not postpone the participation of the lower classes of our people in the profits of economic enterprise, and in other countries, they do postpone it. In the long run, I think our policy is better, and we stand by it.
Ferdinand Marcos
I always look at a group of people who want to attempt an enterprise greater than their means. They begin on this enterprise and they fail.
Mario Monicelli
And the word is capitalism. We are too mealy-mouthed. We fear the word capitalism is unpopular. So we talk about the free enterprise system and run to cover in the folds of the flag and talk about the American Way of Life.
Eric Johnston
War is always a professional enterprise; despair is left to amateurs.
Hans Koning
We knew that the largest consumers of infrastructure would be large enterprise because they spend more absolute dollars. But we also had a mental image of a college kid in his dorm room having the same access, the same scalability and same infrastructure costs as the largest businesses in the world.
Andy Jassy
Successful entrepreneurship is ultimately a matter of flair. But there is also a fund of practical knowledge to be acquired and, of course, the right legal and financial framework has to be provided for productive enterprise to develop.
Margaret Thatcher
That’s free enterprise, friends: freedom to gamble, freedom to lose. And the great thing – the truly democratic thing about it – is that you don’t even have to be a player to lose.
Barbara Ehrenreich
No one in the American Enterprise imposes their beliefs. We clash, and I think that’s what the West is all about.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
A good father believes that he does wisely to encourage enterprise, productive skill, prudent self-denial, and judicious expenditure on the part of his son.
William Graham Sumner
The Gold Rush and the Pony Express made Sacramento a substantial place in terms of enterprise.
Wayne Thiebaud
Passive resistance is a sport for gentleman (and ladies)-just like the pursuit of war, a heroic enterprise for the ruling classes but a grievous burden on the rest.
Kenneth Kaunda
The enterprise of Adolf Hitler, with all its clatter and fireworks, and all its cunning and dynamic energy, is the enterprise of an evil spirit, which is apparently allowed its freedom for a time in order to test our faith in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Karl Barth
It is essential to link enterprises on the basis of objective laws of a socialist economy and legal system.
Samora Machel
There are some enterprises in which a careful disorderliness is the true method.
Herman Melville
Science works its miracles by turning its enterprise into a kind of parlor game confined to the category matter and energy.
Terence McKenna
In my book I don’t just demonstrate that free enterprise is the most efficient way of organizing an economy – which it is. I also show that it’s an expression of American values, and, thus, that a fight for free enterprise is very much a fight for our culture.
Arthur C. Brooks
You beat 50 percent of the people in America by working hard. You beat 40 percent by being a person of honesty and integrity and standing for something. The last 10 percent is a dogfight in the free enterprise system.
Arthur L. Williams, Jr.
During these two and a half years that have followed the war, the most urgent problem we have encountered was: to activate the public enterprises, to bring them up to the level that international markets demand and we are just now getting them prepared for privatization.
Ibrahim Rugova
Thank God our time is now when wrong comes up to meet us everywhere never to leave us till we take, the greatest stride of the soul man ever took. affairs are now soul size the enterprise is exploration unto God. Where are you making for? It takes so many thousand years to wake. But will you wake for pity’s sake?
Christopher Fry
Many understand “state socialism” in this way. Sometimes a system is concealed behind this term in which the capitalist state, in the interests of preparation for the conduct of war, takes upon itself the maintenance of a certain number of private enterprises.
Joseph Stalin
Individualism, the love of enterprise, and the pride in personal freedom, have been deemed by Americans not only as their choicest, but their peculiar and exclusive possessions.
James Bryce
Salesforce’s Chatter is what convinced me that the company understood what is going on in the enterprise; this was the biggest attraction for me. I saw that Salesforce understands social.

A hyperactive stock market is the pickpocket of enterprise.
Warren Buffett
An enterprise that is constantly exploring new horizons is likely to have a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining talent.
Gary Hamel
On the neck of a young man sparkles no gem so gracious as enterprise.
When I started in California, people would say, ‘Enterprise who?’
Pamela Nicholson
That’s a wonderful change that’s taken place, and so most poetry today is published, if not directly by the person, certainly by the enterprise of the poet himself, working with his friends.
A. R. Ammons
The real question of government versus private enterprise is argued on too philosophical and abstract a basis. Theoretically, planning may be good. But nobody has ever figured out the cause of government stupidity—and until they do (and find the cure), all ideal plans will fall into quicksand.
Richard P. Feynman
The bold enterprises are the successful ones. Take counsel of hopes rather than of fears to win in this business.
Rutherford B. Hayes
Windows is the platform of choice for gamers. It’s the only choice for enterprise. If we want to have an open platform, we have to fight to keep Windows open.
Tim Sweeney
All that weak people learn from disappointment, is less confidence in future enterprise.
Norm MacDonald
I think politics is an incredibly noble and fulfilling enterprise, and it’s the best way to do the most good for the most people.
Daniel Pfeiffer
The Enterprise Value Tax is unprecedented, punitive, and has no justification in the tax code.
Alan Patricof
Agriculture, manufactures, commerce, and navigation, the four pillars of our prosperity, are the most thriving when left most free to individual enterprise.
Thomas Jefferson
We want to bring enterprise back to blighted urban areas. People there have been told nothing is ever going to change. The policy makers may feel the same way.
Majora Carter
Science is an enterprise that can only flourish if it puts the truth ahead of nationality, ethnicity, class and color.
John Charles Polanyi
There is no resting place for an enterprise in a competitive economy.
Alfred P. Sloan
Adversity is the mother of enterprise.
Sanjaya Baru
This is the greatest discovery of the scientific enterprise: You take hydrogen gas, and you leave it alone, and it turns into rosebuds, giraffes and humans.
Brian Swimme
Architecture is a hazardous mixture of omnipotence and impotence. It is by definition a c h a o t i c a d v e n t u r e… In other words, the utopian enterprise.
Rem Koolhaas
‘Star Trek’ is about acceptance, and the strength of the Starship Enterprise is that it embraces diversity in all its forms.
George Takei
If you’re going to build a lean enterprise, you can test and measure how often the company ships iterations, how often it fails, how often it is putting things in front of people that don’t work.
Seth Godin
Instead of being taught independence, energy, and enterprise, our youth today is taught to look for security.
B. Carroll Reece
Free enterprise is a natural result of the American form of government, which says in so many words that the more men do for themselves, the less government does for them, the better off we will all be.
Felix Morley
So now we are pushing economic reform, bank reform and enterprise reform. So we can finish that reform this year, in September or October. Then our economy may be much more, you know, normalized.
Kim Dae-jung
Gujarat is all about Trade with Tradition, Commerce with Culture, Enterprise with Entertainment and Development with Disaster management.
Narendra Modi
There’s a lot of vulnerability in songs – I’m not talking about pop songs – from people that are in the art of songwriting more than the commercial enterprise of it.
Mary Gauthier
It was left for the present age to endow Covetousness with glamour on a big scale, and to give it a title which it could carry like a flag. It occurred to somebody to call it Enterprise. From the moment of that happy inspiration, Covetousness has gone forward and never looked back.
Dorothy L. Sayers
Monopolists who fear competition and who distrust democracy because it stands for equal opportunity would like to secure their position against small and energetic enterprise.
Henry A. Wallace
Promiscuity: optimism, free enterprise, mobility–the American Dream.
Mason Cooley
Social enterprise is an effective solution for social problems.
Chey Tae-won
To become financially independent you must turn part of your income into capital; turn capital into enterprise; turn enterprise into profit; turn profit into investment; and turn investment into financial independence.
Jim Rohn
One of the things that evangelicals do really, really well is to make giving a joyous, social enterprise. Too often, the world sees giving as a burden, a sacrifice, when in fact it’s more like an opportunity to help others and oneself at the same time.
Nicholas Kristof
I don’t understand why they call it public broadcasting. As far as I am concerned, there’s nothing public about it; it’s an elitist enterprise. ‘Rush Limbaugh’ is public broadcasting.
Newt Gingrich
The enterprise that does not innovate ages and declines. And in a period of rapid change such as the present, the decline will be fast.
Peter Drucker
I congratulate you, my brave countrymen and fellow soldiers, on the spirit and success with which you have executed this important part of our enterprise.
James Wolfe
The consensus for a strong, independent Executive arose from the Framers’ experience in the Revolution and under the Articles of Confederation. They had seen that the War had almost been lost and was a bumbling enterprise because of the lack of strong Executive leadership.
William Barr
Britain and the US remain the Wild West for ideas, where pioneers push each other towards ever greater heights in the white heat of free enterprise. No one knows their place, no one fears failure and no one is ashamed of success.
Liz Truss
The Family of Man is more than 3 billion strong. It lives in more than 100 nations. Most of its members are not white. Most of them are not Christians. Most of them know nothing about free enterprise or due process of law or the Australian ballot.
John F. Kennedy
I see socialism in the direction, of management, of enterprise, by all who work in the enterprise.
Erich Fromm
Broadcom is the descendent of a nearly 60-year-old unit of the original Hewlett-Packard. Semiconductor companies are like enterprise software companies: they don’t die easily.
Adam Lashinsky
Where ambition can cover its enterprises, even to the person himself, under the appearance of principle, it is the most incurable and inflexible of passions
David Hume
I’m the guy that’s trying to break up that monopoly to introduce free enterprise and competition to the energy sector.
Van Jones
Words, vows, gifts, tears, and love’s full sacrifice, He offers in another’s enterprise; But more in Troilus thousand-fold I see Than in the glass of Pandar’s praise may be, Yet hold I off.
William Shakespeare
Touch and away, Jack?’ asked Stephen. ‘Touch and away? Do you not recall that I have important business there? Enquiries of the very first interest?’ To do with our enterprise? To do with this voyage?’ Perhaps not quite directly.
Patrick O’Brian
Moving to a cooperatively organized enterprise is one of the best ways to really do something about unequal distribution of wealth.
Richard D. Wolff
Novelists who get shitty about screenwriting invariably can’t do it, or they can’t hack it in the world of what’s really, in truth, very bold and very public enterprise.
William Monahan
It’s private enterprise that can create jobs and fill them. It’s business that can train people and make them productive tax-payers. And it’s America Inc. that has the most to gain from tapping this extraordinary human resource.
Bobby Kotick
I think we’re proving ourselves as we go along. The past several months our strategy has been evolutionary – making maximum advantage of our client browser, as well as our enterprise software for people who want to build Web sites.
James L. Barksdale
It is the lone worker who makes the first advance in a subject: the details may be worked out by a team, but the prime idea is due to the enterprise, thought, and perception of an individual.
Alexander Fleming
Whether one believes or not, religion is as real a force in the life of the world as economics or politics, and it demands fair-minded attention. Even if you think the entire religious enterprise is at best misguided and at worst counterproductive, it remains vital, inspiring great good and, sometimes, great evil.
Jon Meacham
Why is our free-enterprise system so strong?- Not because it stands still, frozen in the past, but because it has always adapted to changing realities
Lee Iacocca
Microsoft wasn’t born as an enterprise company. We have always been growing with end users in mind.
Jean-Philippe Courtois
Is psychiatry a medical enterprise concerned with treating diseases, or a humanistic enterprise concerned with helping persons with their personal problems? Psychiatry could be one or the other, but it cannot–despite the pretensions and protestations of psichiatrists–be both.
Thomas Szasz
I think more civil society programs, more free enterprise, more contacts with their fellow brethren in Miami – that’s good for the long-term, and that’s an investment in America’s long-term relationship with the Cuban people, not the Cuban government.
Joe Garcia
Not every innovation in transportation is going to come from government or even a large enterprise. There are smart people out there with tools and skills to come up with great ideas.
Anthony Foxx
The reality is that there’s heartbreak and tragedy that has struck American families because people that came into this country illegally are now involved in criminal enterprise and activity. We don’t have the resources or the will to deport them systemically.
Mike Pence
Each time thou wishest to decide upon performing some enterprise, raise the eyes to heaven, pray God to bless thy project; if thou canst make that prayer, accomplish thy work.
Leopold Schefer
Tree planting is always a utopian enterprise, it seems to me, a wager on a future the planter doesn’t necessarily expect to witness.
Michael Pollan
The process of getting regulations right is described publicly as far more political than in fact it is. It’s essentially a legal and technical enterprise.
Cass Sunstein
We have people from places like Oracle, Microsoft, Intuit. Sama plays a huge role in why people leave lucrative careers to join a social enterprise.
Leila Janah
Our spirit is back, but we haven’t reinstitutionalized it. We’ve got to do a better job of getting across that America is freedom – freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise. And freedom is special and rare. It’s fragile; it needs production [protection].
Ronald Reagan
Now many enterprises are made by individuals, so the attitude has started to change.
Ai Weiwei
There isn’t much in the way of pure communist spirit, because the whole nation seems to be engaged in capitalistic enterprises. Much of the country still operates under government control.
Iris Chang
The business world worships mediocrity. Officially we revere free enterprise, initiative and individuality. Unofficially we fear it.
George Lois
Through the Social Enterprise Demonstration Fund, we are connecting high-potential social enterprises with the resources they need to grow and create jobs. This not only contributes to a fairer, more prosperous province; it also helps position Ontario as a global impact investment leader.
Brad Duguid
In expectation of his demise, a successful businessman may sell out to his competitors to prepare his estate with readily marketable securities, such as U.S. Treasury bonds. The confiscatory death tax eliminates many family enterprises and promotes the growth of giant corporations.
Hans F. Sennholz
John Barleycorn was a hero bold, Of noble enterprise, For if you do but taste his blood, ‘Twill make your courage rise, Twill make a man forget his wo; ‘Twill heighten all his joy.
Robert Burns
The most important stage of any enterprise is the beginning.
Mistrust all enterprises that require new clothes.
E. M. Forster
But it is a worry that there have been so many delays in the reform of China’s state-owned enterprises. We all know that private companies are run more efficiently than state ones. These reforms are very much anticipated for the potential dynamism they could create.
Zhang Xin
No enterprise can exist for itself alone. It ministers to some great need, it performs some great service, not for itself, but for others; or failing therein, it ceases to be profitable and ceases to exist.
Calvin Coolidge
In capitalist enterprise there is no secure income and no security of wealth.
Ludwig von Mises
Unhappy is the fate of one who tries to win his battles and succeed in his attacks without cultivating the spirit of enterprise, for the result is waste of time and general stagnation.
Sun Tzu
A lot of times when people are released or, unfortunately, get fired, they almost scramble for what it is they are going to do next. I think when you are no longer working under a big, corporate umbrella, you have to be your own brand, your own enterprise. That was my thought process before I left.
Cody Rhodes
The future of private enterprise capitalism is also the future of a free society. There is no possibility of having a politically free society unless the major part of its economic resources are operated under a capitalistic private enterprise system.
Milton Friedman
No private enterprise will ever fall prey to bureaucratic methods of management if it is operated with the sole aim of making profit.
Ludwig von Mises
If an enterprise does not aspire to be the best of its kind, it will attract second-rate employees, and it will be soon forgotten.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
But if you parry individuals points – a negative and defensive enterprise – you never step back and actively imagine a world in which a different system of ideas could be true – a positive act.
Deborah Tannen
Small opportunities often presage great enterprises.
Above all, as the keynote of all Democratic policy, in passing upon any question, let the controlling aim and ambition be to keep the road open for private enterprise and personal initiative.
John W. Davis
We will still be enormously profitable and by far the most profitable enterprise software company.
Larry Ellison
Don’t complain; just work harder.
Randy Pausch
I am convinced that the majority of American people do understand that we have a moral responsibility to foster the concepts of opportunity, free enterprise, the rule of law, and democracy. They understand that these values are the hope of the world.
Richard Lugar
The big advantage that we have as a venture capital firm over a hedge fund or a mutual fund is we have a 13-year lockup on our money. And so enterprise can go in and out of fashion four different times, and we can go and invest in one of these companies, and it’s okay, because we can stay the course.
Marc Andreessen
The basic rule of free enterprise: You must give in order to get.
Scott Alexander
If one examines the American idea of freedom, the individual, free enterprise, their Constitution, their political and economic structures as well as their mode of exploiting their natural resources, all these are shrouded in the idea of justice.
Ndabaningi Sithole
Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.
Winston Churchill
Free enterprise system was born the second year the pilgrims were here. And of course, it has made America the most prosperous country in the world.
Ted Cruz
I think that to a very great extent we are partners with the divine in this enterprise called history. That is an ongoing relationship, and there is absolutely no guarantee that things will automatically work out to our best advantage.
Chaim Potok
The Cloud-Native Enterprise is a venture capitalist creating continuous innovation powered by Cloud Foundry.
Colin Humphreys
Presidents in both parties – from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan – have known that our free-enterprise economy is the source of our middle-class prosperity.
Marco Rubio
If you don’t believe in winning, you don’t believe in free enterprise, capitalism, our way of life.
Tom Landry
Within ten years, he had earned his college degree and was a millionaire from his business enterprises in real estate, landscaping, and bodybuilding. He was also the winner of a Golden Globe Award for his debut as a dramatic actor in Stay Hungry.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
The greatest investment and greatest fair deal and enterprise is family, cozy homes. A cozy home is based on cozy people. Cozy people are not brought and imported, they are made from the time of birth to the time of infinity.
Harbhajan Singh Yogi
There seems to be an unwritten rule on Wall Street: If you don’t understand it, then put your life savings into it. Shun the enterprise around the corner, which can at least be observed, and seek out the one that manufactures an incomprehensible product.
Peter Lynch
The heroic example of other days is in great part the source of the courage of each generation; and men walk up composedly to the most perilous enterprises, beckoned onward by the shades of the brave that were.
Arthur Helps
Business enterprise is an organ of society. There is only one valid definition of business purpose: to create a customer.
Peter Drucker
The Great Depression in the United States, far from being a sign of the inherent instability of the private enterprise system, is a testament to how much harm can be done by mistakes on the part of a few men when they wield vast power over the monetary system of the country.
Milton Friedman
The real story of Detroit […] can be summed up in seven words. Private enterprise built it, government destroyed it.
Peter Schiff
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
No enterprise is more likely to succeed than one concealed from the enemy until it is ripe for execution.
Niccolo Machiavelli
In today’s vastly expanded scientific enterprise, obsessed with impact factors and competition, we will need much more night science to unveil the many mysteries that remain about the workings of organisms.
Francois Jacob
Many in local government will ask why should only a few areas have the freedoms and benefits of Enterprise Zone status while the majority lose out?
Andy Sawford
Over time, Europeans have come to rely on governments to protect them from the rougher facets of private enterprise and to look after them in old age.
Sri Mulyani Indrawati
What people can excel our Northern and New England brethren in skill, invention, activity, energy, perseverance, and enterprise?
John C. Calhoun
It is hope in this wider sense which enabled my father to build, from scratch, one of India’s largest modern enterprises. His was an undertaking powered by hard work, initiative, self-belief but, above all else, the capacity, as he would often say, “to dream with your eyes wide open”.
Anil Ambani
What recommends commerce to me is its enterprise and bravery. It does not clasp its hands and pray to Jupiter.
Henry David Thoreau
Mozilla has one foot in the Valley, Silicon Valley product technology, and partly one foot in the social enterprise space.
Mitchell Baker
A nation with a strong defence industry will not only be more secure. It will also reap rich economic benefits – it can boost investment, expand manufacturing, support enterprise, raise the technology level and increase economic growth in the country.
Narendra Modi
Then, again, the ability to organize and conduct industrial, commercial, or financial enterprises is rare; the great captains of industry are as rare as great generals.
William Graham Sumner
We agree with the statement contained in the encyclical Quadragesimo Anno, written by Pope Leo XIII, that “anything which dominates the life of the community should be owned by the community.” That is the basis upon which we believe there should be government ownership of monopolistic enterprises.
Tommy Douglas
Free enterprise is the sure and so far the only known way of constantly improving the well-being of mankind.
Raymond C. Hoiles
There’s room in the Republican Party for anyone who wants to be a part of the values that we espouse when it comes to the role of government, free enterprise, free markets.
Michael Steele
The whole enterprise of teaching managers is steeped in the ethic of data-driven analytical support. The problem is, the data is only available about the past. So the way we’ve taught managers to make decisions and consultants to analyze problems condemns them to taking action when it’s too late.
Clayton M. Christensen
When a man talks with absolute sincerity and freedom he goes on a voyage of discovery. The whole company has shares in the enterprise.
John Jay Chapman
I do think that philosophy and science are very different intellectual enterprises, but that does not mean that when we get knowledge from philosophy it is a different kind of knowledge.
Tim Crane
The trouble with the Labour Party is that they don’t really believe in Socialism, but they cannot wholeheartedly approve of private enterprise either.
Jo Grimond
Those with the enterprise lack the money and those with the money lack the enterprise to buy stocks when they are cheap.
Benjamin Graham
Any one who believes that any great enterprise of an industrial character can be started without labor must have little experience of life.
William Graham Sumner
I think I’m basically a liberal Conservative – I believe in low tax, spirit of free enterprise, and in making sure that we as politicians create the framework for business to produce the dosh that we’re going to need to pay for the poorest. And the longer I live, the more I think that we all have a duty to each other.
Boris Johnson
The bonus is really one of the great give-aways in business enterprise. It is the annual salve applied to the conscience of the rich and the wounds of the poor.
E. B. White
Any enterprise of your own is a great enterprise.
Josh Becker
If you aren’t building a social enterprise, I don’t know what your business model will be in 5 years
Angela Ahrendts
Ignorance and arrogance are the artist’s and entrepreneur’s indispensable allies. She must be clueless enough to have no
idea how difficult her enterprise is going to be and cocky enough to believe she can pull it off anyway.”
Steven Pressfield
I have always believed you cannot run a successful enterprise from behind a desk.
Lou Gerstner
Free enterprise is the best economic system in the history of the world, because it is the only system where you can make poor people richer and you don’t have to make rich people poor.
Marco Rubio
I believe that there are barriers, educational barriers, cultural barriers, societal barriers, that are keeping people from accessing the promise of a vibrant free enterprise economy.
Marco Rubio
Free enterprise is not a bad idea and has produced art.
Ishmael Reed
Capitalism is supposedly free enterprise. Supposedly about the free individual. But capitalism itself is so massive that the guy on the street gets caught in paying rent, taxes, and he doesn’t own himself at all.
Frank Capra
Art, industry, and commerce, so long crushed and overborne, were stirring into renewed life, and a crowd of adventurous men, nurtured in war and incapable of repose, must seek employment for their restless energies in fields of peaceful enterprise.
Francis Parkman
The cloud scalability is just amazing. So if you are, as an example, an NGO, a social enterprise, if you really want to scale the world, the cloud is just amazing.
Jean-Philippe Courtois
Fatal human malice is the staple of narrators, original sin the mother-fluid of historians. But it is a risky enterprise to have to write of virtue.
Thomas Keneally
The engine which drives enterprise is not thrift, but profit.
John Maynard Keynes
Benjamin Graham wrote, “Those with enterprise haven’t the money, and those with money haven’t the enterprise, to buy stocks when they are cheap.”
Seth Klarman
It’s a creative enterprise, just like art, just like painting, music. Creating something can be done in different categories, so to do it in film is just another expression, which is great. Because it translates so well because so many people see the work, if you’re lucky.
Robert Redford
From our perspective, trying to deal with this continuing campaign of terror, if you will, the war on terror that we’re engaged in, this is a continuing enterprise. The people that were involved in some of those activities before 9/11 are still out there.
Dick Cheney
So if we’re going to build new applications that require a large time investment, like say movie editing – today that doesn’t matter for the enterprise desktop, but eventually it will when we get closer to consumers – you really need to have a cross-platform story.
Miguel de Icaza
Whenever a president nominates somebody to a high-profile post, there is always the risk that some skeleton, real or imagined, will emerge from the nominee’s closet and doom the whole enterprise.
Timothy Noah
We didn’t really start the company to go build an enterprise software company.
Aaron Levie
Bearing all this in mind, we see that there is no Russian national understanding which would permit the early establishment in Russia of anything resembling the private enterprise system as we know it.
George F. Kennan
The more you love your art/ calling/ enterprise, the more important its accomplishment to the evolution of your soul, the more you will fear it and the more Resistance you will experience facing it.
Steven Pressfield
The adhesion of Coca-Cola is an affirmation of the expansion of the Global Pact and the importance it assumes worldwide, especially on the US market where more and more enterprises have decided to get involved.
George Kell
There has been an ebb and flow in enterprise IT of centralized versus distributed.
Peter Levine
Productivity is driven at the enterprise level. Better wages, better performing workplaces, are driven at the workplace level.
Bill Shorten
Most teams are naturally flat; they have fewer members than a large enterprise, which allows for intimacy and trust to form. This makes collaborative problem solving in individual teams more straightforward.
Chris Fussell
American prosperity and American free enterprise are both highly unusual in the world, and we should not overlook the possibility that the two are connected.
Thomas Sowell
In 1998 I invested in the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship at Strathclyde Uni and subsequently put more capital into enterprise education to try and help change the culture.
Tom Hunter
I was once invited to take part in a heroic, possibly fatal enterprise, but I declined, mainly on account of sloth.
Edward Abbey
President Obama’s view of a free economy is to send your money to his friends. My vision for a free enterprise economy is to return entrepreneurship and genius and creativity to the American people!
Mitt Romney
No enterprise can exist for itself alone.
Calvin Coolidge
Folks who never do any more than they get paid for, never get paid for any more than they do
Elbert Hubbard
Across our country, social enterprise partnerships between the public and private sectors are providing millions of Americans – young and old – a second chance.
George R. Roberts
Enterprise Washington is economic development in areas of high unemployment around the state of Washington.
Mike Lowry
The question really is, are you improving the world? And you can do that in many models. You can do that in government, you can do that in a nonprofit, and you can do it in commercial enterprise.
Jeff Bezos
Whether your dream is a $100,000 in sales or a million, the amount of work is likely the same – you’ll still have 86,400 seconds each day, so why couldn’t you imagine creating the company and enterprise that can fulfill every aspect of any dream you wish to have?
Michael Gerber
The daily act of writing remains as demanding and maddening as it was before, and the pleasure you get from writing – rare but profound – remains at the true heart of the enterprise. On their best days, writers all over the world are winning Pulitzers, all alone in their studios, with no one watching.
Jeffrey Eugenides
Bureaucrats denounce private enterprise for the consequences of their own reckless policies and demand still more governmental controls.
Henry Hazlitt
Men are always averse to enterprises in which they foresee difficulties.
Niccolo Machiavelli
Strong automotive and enterprise sales and the positive impact of our expanded license agreement with Microsoft more than offset the loss of revenue from the former devices and services business.
Rajeev Suri
Commerce is unexpectedly confident and serene, alert, adventurous, and unwearied. It is very natural in its methods withal, far more so than many fantastic enterprises and sentimental experiments, and hence its singular success.
Henry David Thoreau
Science is essentially an anarchic enterprise: theoretical anarchism is more humanitarian and more likely to encourage progress than its law-and-order alternatives.
Paul Feyerabend
In the enterprise you want to start intentionally small.
Aaron Levie
A traffic jam is a collision between free enterprise and socialism. Free enterprise produces automobiles faster than socialism can build roads and road capacity.
Andrew Joseph Galambos
It is a mistake to think that one limits one’s risk by spreading too much between enterprises about which one knows little and has no reason for special confidence.
John Maynard Keynes
Government can’t create wealth, but it can create the conditions for private enterprise to flourish.
Bill Owens
There is at this present juncture, a certain fermentation of mind, a certain activity of speculation and enterprise which if properly directed may be made subservient to useful purposes; but which if left entirely to itself, may be attended with pernicious effects.
Alexander Hamilton
The advantage of the consumer businesses is they tend to be much broader-based, much larger number of customers, that tend to over time be a lot more predictable. The advantage of the enterprise companies is they are not as subject to consumer trend, fad, behavior.
Marc Andreessen
The Enterprise In Space program is an exciting opportunity to simultaneously advance cutting edge technologies while getting students from around the world engaged in STEAM and space education.
Bruce Pittman
Desire can blind us to the hazards of our enterprises.
Marie de France
Marx set out to resolve the contradictions and to correct the errors in classical political economy. In this he thought he had succeeded very well. Judging by the sound and the fury of the controversy surrounding his interpretations, he either succeeded too well or deluded himself to the success of his enterprise.
David Harvey
President Obama wants to put free enterprise on trial.
Mitt Romney
Private enterprise creates; government destroys. That is the great economic lesson of our times and all times.
Llewellyn Rockwell
All business leaders need to be technologists, as every industry now has a Netflix or an Uber on the horizon, threatening to upend business as usual. Apps are driving this disruption, and every enterprise needs to become an app company.
Parker Harris
We are building technology to keep up with what’s happening in the world. It’s transforming the way people are working. We’re bringing the enterprise to the world.
Parker Harris
The great dialectic in our time is not, as anciently and by some still supposed, between capital and labor; it is between economic enterprise and the state.
John Kenneth Galbraith
No: war material is life-saving for one’s own people and whoever works and performs in these spheres can be proud of it; here enterprise as a whole finds its highest justification of existence.
Gustav Krupp
Government never furthered any enterprise but by the alacrity with which it got out of its way.
Henry David Thoreau
One common behavior of late Stage 3 [in the process of a company’s decline] is when those in power blame other people or external factors- or otherwise explain away the data- rather than confront the frightening reality that the enterprise may be in serious trouble.
Susan Collins
Whether you’re a government entity, a large enterprise, or a startup, a true digital transformation takes advantage of technology to focus on the customer, automates work that does not need manual interference, and unleashes your people to truly make decisions that change the path of your company.
Safra A. Catz
I’m more than happy to share with you my opinion on Donald Trump but I’m running for president because I think this country needs to reembrace the Constitution. This country needs to reembrace free enterprise and it needs to a reembrace the strong national defense.
Marco Rubio
Sertorius was far from being strong enough to renew the gigantic enterprise of Hannibal. He was lost if he left Spain, where all his successes were bound up with the peculiarities of the country and the people; and even there, he was more and more compelled to renounce the offensive.
Theodor Mommsen
In actual
fact, it is the State, i.e., the taxpayer who has become responsible
to private enterprise. In Fascist Italy the State pays for the
blunders of private enterprise Profit is private and individual.
Loss is public and social.
Gaetano Salvemini
Mythmaking is the evolutionary enterprise of translating truths.

Noam Chomsky
I think religion is as flawed an enterprise as any other human endeavor, but the interests and ambitions of religion are the right interests and ambitions.

Enterprise zones have succeeded in attracting needed capital to our urban poverty centers. Businesses and investors that wouldn’t otherwise give these blighted areas a second glance react to the incentives and invest.
Jared Polis
The characteristic mark of this age of dictators, wars and revolutions is its anticapitalistic bias. Most governments and political parties were eager to restrict the sphere of private initiative and free enterprise.
Ludwig von Mises
The joy of just being involved in something, of being part of a big process, just as a human being, it’s nice to be part of people who are in the same enterprise, heading for the same goal, rather than, ‘Oh this is all about me and my role. The story’s about me.’
Ciaran Hinds
The invasion of the Church by the world is a menace to the extension of Christ’s Kingdom. In all ages conformity to the world by Christians has resulted in lack of spiritual life and a consequent lack of spiritual vision and enterprise. A secularized or self-centered Church can never evangelize the world.
John Mott
If people who have to work together in an enterprise trust one another it is because they are all operating to a common set of ethical norms….such a society will be better able to innovate…since the high degree of trust will permit a wide variety of social relationships to emerge.
Francis Fukuyama
I’d love to serve on the Enterprise.
Julie Payette

Rick Santorum
Organized business has assumed that greater profits would be pretty much of a cure-all, and it has to a major extent ignored the fact that the welfare of business rests upon the welfare of the consumers of a nation; that business or free enterprise will function in a democracy only so long as the democracy functions.
Saul Alinsky
It’s a sad day when Republicans will attack fellow Republicans on an issue as fundamental as free enterprise.
Doug Ducey
The Holy Spirit cannot conquer the world with unbelief, nor can He save the world with a worldly Church. He calls for a crusade, a campaign, and an adventure of saving passion. For this enterprise He wants a separated, sanctified and sacrificial people.
Samuel Chadwick

Camille Paglia
You know, I’ve got experiences going back to the wage price controls in the Nixon administration where, in effect, we had what I think was a terrible mistake, in that case a Republican administration, where moved in and tried to control the wages, prices and profits of every enterprise in America. It was a huge mistake.
Dick Cheney

Mitch Daniels
No man that does not see visions will ever realize any high hope or undertake any high enterprise.

John Zachman
An enterprise is a community of human beings, not a collection of “human resources”.
Henry Mintzberg
Thats a wonderful change thats taken place, and so most poetry today is published, if not directly by the person, certainly by the enterprise of the poet himself, working with his friends.
A. R. Ammons
It will afford me unfeigned satisfaction if my kingdom can add its quota toward the successful accomplishment of the most important astronomical observation of the present century and assist, however humbly, the enlightened nations of the earth in these costly enterprises .
If you think about the market that we’re in, and more broadly just the enterprise software market, the kind of transition that’s happening right now from legacy systems to the cloud is literally, by definition, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Aaron Levie
Startups are the engines of exponential growth, manifesting the power of innovation. Several big companies today are startups of yesterday. They were born with a spirit of enterprise and adventure kept alive due to hardwork and perseverance and today have become shining beacons of innovation.
Narendra Modi
It is not impossible to succeed as a social democracy, where business and free enterprise thrive, and not abandon the disenfranchised, poor, sick, and elderly.
Richard Belzer
The IT model of the enterprise has become a lot more user lead.
Aaron Levie
I’m a big believer in free enterprise. If people want to try it, then go for it.
Vince Flynn
I have been unsure, from the start, what the Occupy movement was all about, although I did suspect that it was just fatuous, anti-enterprise, left-wingery.
Nigel Farage
Praise, like gold and diamonds, owes its value only to its scarcity. It becomes cheap as it becomes vulgar, and will no longer raise expectation or animate enterprise.
Samuel Johnson
Experience teacheth us
That resolution ‘s a sole help at need:
And this, my lord, our honour teacheth us,
That we be bold in every enterprise:
Then since there is no way, but fight or die,
Be resolute, my lord, for victory.
William Shakespeare
There’s nothing wrong with the free-enterprise system. But it has to have some compassion.
Jim McDermott
Private enterprise is ceasing to be free enterprise.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
My university education had been a shallow and superficial enterprise. The central driving forces of the economy I lived in were either ignored or left vague, to the point of meaningless.
Herbert Schiller
I’m a novelist, a critic, an essayist – I tend to see politics as a subset of cultures rather than the other way around. It’s a human enterprise, a tool or a technology revealing our collective inner self.
Walter Kirn
What passes in the world for talent or dexterity or enterprise is often only a want of moral principle. We may succeed where others fail, not from a greater share of invention, but from not being nice in the choice of expedients.
William Hazlitt
This is Wall Street, and today is important. Because tomorrow, July 4th, I intended to make my first million dollars–an excitingday in a man’s life. The enterprise was slightly illegal.
Abraham Polonsky
Free enterprise cannot only make us better off financially, it can make us better people.
Mitt Romney
Truth is not to be found either in traditional capitalism or in Marxism. Each represents a partial truth. Historically, capitalism failed to discern the truth in collective enterprise and Marxism failed to see the truth in individual enterprise.

Walter Schloss
Everything about the enterprise, and then by definition the software the enterprise uses has changed - just in the last 5 years.
Aaron Levie
All great enterprises have a pearl of faith at their core, and this must be ours: that Americans are still a people born to liberty. That they retain the capacity for self-government. That, addressed as free-born, autonomous men and women of God-given dignity, they will rise yet again to drive back a mortal enemy.
Mitch Daniels
Sun’s role in the grand scheme of development is to work on the runtime environment and the APIs. The tools we produce are much more for systems programmers, not enterprise developers.
John Fowler
Free enterprise is a rough and competitive game. It is a hell of a lot better than a government monopoly.
Ronald Reagan

Abraham Lincoln
Don’t mistake activity with achievement.
John Wooden
The prison-industrial complex and the military-industrial complex are here with us and are multi-billion dollar enterprises. We can make more money off the kid in Compton if he’s a criminal instead of a scholar. It’s business.
Henry Rollins
Free enterprise capitalism has been the most powerful creative system of social cooperation and human progress ever conceived, but its perception and its role in society have been distorted.
