One of the greatest obstacles to a man's advancement is discontent.
The conflict between the generation is as old as the natural consequence of human progress. Those who are coming on behind us are not our children in the sense that we have created them and defined their limitations; they are rather a new race, different from us in their equipment and outlook...quite likely to be much better than we are.
Business grows big through the service it renders, not through any 'control' that it exercises over materials, money or people.
Because a thing is useful is no reason why it should be ugly.
Profits made out of the distress of the people are always much smaller than profits made out of the most lavish service of the people at the lowest prices that competent management can make possible.
Competition whose motive is merely to compete, to drive some other fellow out, never carries very far. The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all but goes on making his own business better all the time. Business that grow by development and improvement do not die.
