Churchill on Private vs Public:
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.
Machiavelli on Stealth:
No enterprise is more likely to succeed than one concealed from the enemy until it is ripe for execution.
Hastings (of Netflix) on Labour:
Hard work, like long hours at the office, doesn’t matter as much to us. We care about great work.
Owens on Wealth:
Government can’t create wealth, but it can create the conditions for private enterprise to flourish.
Jobs on the Future:
Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
