The best executive is one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what he wants them to do, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.

To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.

Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground.

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.

It is better to be faithful than famous.

A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.

The only man who makes no mistakes is the man who never does anything.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
