Bankruptcies of governments have, on the whole, done less harm to mankind than their ability to raise loans.
more R. H. Tawney quotes
But don't forget that we fought a 1974 election on saying really that pay couldn't go on going up as it was. The important thing … you must never look at pay on its own, what you've got to look at is pay in relation to the amount produced. It's when those two get badly out of line that you get inflation. And now obviously, we've got very much higher pay, but we're producing less than we were in 1970, so it's the relationship that you've got to watch. Don't look at pay separately. Once you start to cut off a man's pay from the fruits of his labour, he will inevitably feel enormous resentment. If he's going to work harder, of course he deserves more pay, and he doesn't want it all taken away in tax. But there are two sides of the equation you've got to look at.
more Margaret Thatcher quotes
Socialism is not in the least what it pretends to be. It is not the pioneer of a better and finer world, but the spoiler of what thousands of years of civilization have created. It does not build, it destroys. For destruction is the essence of it. It produces nothing, it only consumes what the social order based on private ownership in the means of production has created.
more Ludwig von Mises quotes
One does what one is; one becomes what one does.
more Robert von Musil quotes
Primitive communism ... once existed among all peoples and still survives in many uncivilized countries.  All production in this stage of society is under the direction of chiefs or councils of elders.  No individual responsibility exists.
more George Winder quotes
Remember this, if you can. There is nothing more precious than time. You probably feel you have a measureless supply of it, but you have not. Wasted hours destroy your life just as surely at the beginning as at the end, only in the end it becomes more obvious.
