There is no employing class, no working class, no farming class. You may pigeonhole a man or woman as a farmer or a worker or a professional man or an employer or even a banker. But the son of the farmer will be a doctor or a worker or even a banker, and his daughter a teacher. The son of a worker will be an employer - or maybe president.Herbert Hoover Banker Sayings By Herbert Hoover: There is no employing class, no working class, no farming class. You may pigeonhole a
Really, if that's the case, you need to stop letting your mother dress you funny. It's hard to take anyone serious as a killer when he looks like an investment banker. The only part of me that's nervous is my checkbook. (Kat)Sherrilyn Kenyon Banker Sayings By Sherrilyn Kenyon: Really, if that's the case, you need to stop letting your mother dress you funny.
You don't get rewarded for creating great technology, not anymore," says a friend of mine who has worked in tech since the 1980s, a former investment banker who now advises start-ups. "It's all about the business model. The market pays you to have a company that scales quickly. It's all about getting big fast. Don't be profitable, just get big.Dan Lyons Banker Sayings By Dan Lyons: You don't get rewarded for creating great technology, not anymore," says a friend of mine
The business of banking ought to be simple. If it is hard it is wrong. The only securities which a banker, using money that he may be asked at short notice to repay, ought to touch, are those which are easily saleable and easily intelligible.Walter Bagehot Banker Sayings By Walter Bagehot: The business of banking ought to be simple. If it is hard it is wrong.

The prerequisite for a banker is Strait As and no talent.Grant McLachlan Banker Sayings By Grant McLachlan: The prerequisite for a banker is Strait As and no talent.
Obviously, there's no way of making money that doesn't hurt somebody somewhere, but there are degrees of scale and immediacy. A merchant prince or a banker or a wealthy landowner isn't generally required to take responsibility for the people he cheats, screws and starves; society couldn't function if that were the case.K.J. Parker Banker Sayings By K.J. Parker: Obviously, there's no way of making money that doesn't hurt somebody somewhere, but there are
Ladies love outlaws, like babies love stray dogs. Ladies touch babies like a banker touches gold, outlaws touch ladies somewhere deep down in their soul.Waylon Jennings Banker Sayings By Waylon Jennings: Ladies love outlaws, like babies love stray dogs. Ladies touch babies like a banker touches
You look at me and judge me. And I just want to ask, for what? I am in full control. No one has a gun to my head. Why can't this be my profession,one I have chosen for myself? I tell you prostitutes are professional in their skills and practise it like the vocation of true apostles- and why shouldn't they? What's so different from the accountant or the doctor selling his time? I ended up in this profession in the same way someone might end up being a lawyer because the couldn't get into engineering or dentistry,or because they couldn't get into medicine, or even a banker who grew up telling everyone they want to be a soccer player. They do those things because that was what was available for heir talents and their circumstances at that time. But do we pity them? No, because that's lif-Panashe Chigumadzi Banker Sayings By Panashe Chigumadzi: You look at me and judge me. And I just want to ask, for what?
What a child does not know and does not want to know of race and colour and class, he learns soon enough as he grows to see each man flipped inexorably into some predestined groove like a penny or a sovereign in a banker's rack. Kibii, the Nandi boy, was my good friend. Arab Ruta (the same boy grown to manhood), who sits before me, is my good friend, but the handclasp will be shorter, the smile will not be so eager on his lips, and though the path is for a while the same, he will walk behind me now, when once, in the simplicity of our nonage, we walked together.Beryl Markham Banker Sayings By Beryl Markham: What a child does not know and does not want to know of race and
As the year goes on, certain deputies - and others, high in public life - will appear unshaven, without coat or cravat; or they will jettison these marks of the polite man, when the temperature rises. They affect the style of men who begin their mornings with a splash under a backyard pump, and who stop off at their street-corner bar for a nip of spirits on their way to ten hours' manual labor. Citizen Robespierre, however, is a breathing rebuke
to these men; he retains his buckled shoes, his striped coat of olive green. Can it be the same coat that he wore in the first year of the Revolution? He is not profligate with coats.
While Citizen Danton tears off the starched linen that fretted his thick neck, Citizen Saint-Just's cravat grows ever higher, stiffer, more wonderful to behold. He affects a single earring, but he resembles less a corsair than a slightly deranged merchant banker.
Hilary Mantel Banker Sayings By Hilary Mantel: As the year goes on, certain deputies - and others, high in public life -
An existence devoted to reading would have been his ultimate fulfillment, but it had not been given to him. He would have had to choose that path much earlier, to have known what he wanted to do...To have had a life plan. At first it had been interested to be recognized as a promising young banker, to climb the hierarchy, to have responsibilities and to earn a lot of money. Up until the day he had started to feel, dimly at first, then more and more clearly, that the man he had become was the absolute opposite of what he really was. Although the dichotomy weighed heavily on him, for a while the money he was earning was compensation enough, but then it could no longer make up for it. The gap between his ideal and his reality was too great. The weight turned into an anguish that was succeeded by the intolerable idea that he was wasting his life --or even that he had already wasted it.Antoine Laurain Banker Sayings By Antoine Laurain: An existence devoted to reading would have been his ultimate fulfillment, but it had not
Once I put down a color, I never cover it up. If you are born a musician, why become a banker?Etel Adnan Banker Sayings By Etel Adnan: Once I put down a color, I never cover it up. If you are born
I NEVER lost as much but twice,
And that was in the sod;
Twice have I stood a beggar
Before the door of God!
Angels, twice descending,
Reimbursed my store.
Burglar, banker, father,
I am poor once more!
Emily Dickinson Banker Sayings By Emily Dickinson: I NEVER lost as much but twice, And that was in the sod; Twice have
In my travels, I have noticed that in some countries drinking has become a national pastime. If you don't drink, they look at you as if there is something wrong. Their motto is: "It doesn't matter how bad your English is, as long as your Scotch is good." If a banker asked them what their liquid assets are, they would bring two bottles of Scotch.Shiv Khera Banker Sayings By Shiv Khera: In my travels, I have noticed that in some countries drinking has become a national
Every businessman enjoying customer patronage, whether he be a baker, banker, or barber is conferring a public benefit, raising production, and reducing unemployment; businessmen earn their livelihood by producing products and rendering services where ever they are needed.Hans F. Sennholz Banker Sayings By Hans F. Sennholz: Every businessman enjoying customer patronage, whether he be a baker, banker, or barber is conferring
The American woman is the most intelligent woman in the world today - the only one that always knows what she wants, and therefore always gets it. Hasn't she proved it by making her husband in his role as slave-banker look almost ridiculous in the eyes of the whole world? Not only has she intelligence but a wonderful beauty of line is hers, possessed by no other woman of any race at the present time.Marcel Duchamp Banker Sayings By Marcel Duchamp: The American woman is the most intelligent woman in the world today - the only
A concrete embodiment of the jubilee commandment was evidenced in a rural church in Iowa during the "farm crisis." The banker in the town held mortgages on many farms. The banker and the farmers belonged to the same church. The banker could have foreclosed. He did not because, he said, "These are my neighbors and I want to live here a long time." He extended the loans and did not collect the interest that was rightly his. The pastor concluded, "He was practicing the law of the Jubilee year, and he did not even know it." The pastor might also have noted that the reason the banker could take such action is that his bank was a rare exception. It was locally and independently owned, not controlled by a larger Chicago banking system.Walter Brueggemann Banker Sayings By Walter Brueggemann: A concrete embodiment of the jubilee commandment was evidenced in a rural church in Iowa
The turn of the century was the age of the banker, so much so that the leading bankers of the day had become legendary figures in the public imagination-vast, overshadowing behemoths whose colossal power seemed to reach everywhere.Doris Kearns Goodwin Banker Sayings By Doris Kearns Goodwin: The turn of the century was the age of the banker, so much so that
As praetor, Cicero was expected to take in promising pupils from good families to study law with him, and in May, after the Senate recess, a new young intern of sixteen joined his chambers. This was Marcus Caelius Rufus from Interamnia, the son of a wealthy banker and prominent election official of the Velina tribe. Cicero agreed, largely as a political favor, to supervise the boy's trainingRobert Harris Banker Sayings By Robert Harris: As praetor, Cicero was expected to take in promising pupils from good families to study
Beat me, hurt me, fight me and I'll bounce back, but be nice to me? I folded quicker than a banker in a high-stakes poker game.Pippa DaCosta Banker Sayings By Pippa DaCosta: Beat me, hurt me, fight me and I'll bounce back, but be nice to me?
You know, I only claim to play three instruments. My dad is a banker, but a drummer at heart; and my mom used to teach piano lessons when she was younger. So I can play some piano, play a little drums, and fake the bass - but banjo, mandolin, and guitar are my thing.Charlie Worsham Banker Sayings By Charlie Worsham: You know, I only claim to play three instruments. My dad is a banker, but
On the one hand, I loved being a banker. I loved how numbers could tell a story and how you can invest in ideas and see them translate into products and services and create jobs. What I didn't like, particularly where I was working in Brazil during the debt crisis of the early '80s, was how the poor were excluded from the banking system. I made the decision to try and experiment with whether we could use the tools of banking to extend the benefits of the economy to the poor.Jacqueline Novogratz Banker Sayings By Jacqueline Novogratz: On the one hand, I loved being a banker. I loved how numbers could tell
I've never categorically been a banker. I had two internships while I was at university. The decision was more banking, or magic, and I went with the latter.Drummond Money-Coutts Banker Sayings By Drummond Money-Coutts: I've never categorically been a banker. I had two internships while I was at university.
I do what I do, and write what I write, without calculating what is worth what and so on. Fortunately, I am not a banker or an accountant. I feel that there is a time when a political statement needs to be made and I make it.Arundhati Roy Banker Sayings By Arundhati Roy: I do what I do, and write what I write, without calculating what is worth
Pick a leader who will fund schools, not limit spending on education and allow libraries to close. Pick a leader who chooses diplomacy over war. An honest broker in foreign relations. A leader with integrity, one who says what they mean, keeps their word and does not lie to their people. Pick a leader who is strong and confident, yet humble. Intelligent, but not sly. A leader who encourages diversity, not racism. One who understands the needs of the farmer, the teacher, the doctor, and the environmentalist -- not only the banker, the oil tycoon, the weapons developer, or the insurance and pharmaceutical lobbyist.Suzy Kassem Banker Sayings By Suzy Kassem: Pick a leader who will fund schools, not limit spending on education and allow libraries
They strolled toward town, stopping now and then to let him catch his breath and to gaze upward, for the west Kansas sky is black velvet on clear, cool December nights, and the Milky Way is strung across it like the diamond necklace of a crooked banker's mistress.Mary Doria Russell Banker Sayings By Mary Doria Russell: They strolled toward town, stopping now and then to let him catch his breath and
You don't have to become an investment banker as a way of demonstrating that education has worked for you. But librarians have to believe in the values of high culture. Not just high culture but middle culture, low culture, kinds of exciting eye-catching crap of all kinds. Everyone needs that.Francis Spufford Banker Sayings By Francis Spufford: You don't have to become an investment banker as a way of demonstrating that education
I was an accidental banker. To please my parents, I went for an interview with Chase Manhattan Bank in 1983. They promised to send me into their offices in more than 40 countries and essentially audit the practices. It was an extraordinary job.Jacqueline Novogratz Banker Sayings By Jacqueline Novogratz: I was an accidental banker. To please my parents, I went for an interview with
You should never do anything too much. If you only eat healthy food, that is too much. Success is balance - a banker with no time with his kids, he's not successful. If he doesn't have time to walk his kids to school, that is not success - that is a mistake.Magnus Scheving Banker Sayings By Magnus Scheving: You should never do anything too much. If you only eat healthy food, that is

You even used to make up funny stories about those poor little lost creatures of yours. Remember Bob, the squirrel banker who forgot to pay his electric bill so he froze to death?Kimberly Derting Banker Sayings By Kimberly Derting: You even used to make up funny stories about those poor little lost creatures of
It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30,000,000 in bonds and not $30,000,000 in currency. Both are promises to pay; but one promise fattens the usurer (banker), and the other helps the people. If the currency issued by the Government were no good, then the bonds issued would be no good either. It is a terrible situation when the Government, to increase the national wealth, must go into debt and submit to ruinous interest charges at the hands of men who control the fictitious values of gold.Thomas A. Edison Banker Sayings By Thomas A. Edison: It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30,000,000 in bonds and not
Everyone experiences grace, even if they don't realize it.
It's kind of like Moby's music. You could ask your average sixty-something-year-old retired banker in Connecticut if he's ever heard of Moby and/or his music and the response you'd receive more than likely would be a resounding, "No - what's a Moby?"
But if you say, "Remember that American Express commercial where Tiger Woods is putting around New York City? Remember the song playing? That was Moby."
"Oh, then, OK. I guess I have heard Moby," our theoretical retired banker in New Canaan might say.
"So ... what exactly is a Moby?"
That's like grace. Not that grace is a pretentious vegan techno-rocker, but you get the idea.
Grace is everywhere, all around us, all of the time. We only need the ears to hear it and the eyes to see it.
Cathleen Falsani Banker Sayings By Cathleen Falsani: Everyone experiences grace, even if they don't realize it. It's kind of like Moby's music.
The biggest and, outwardly, most trustful banker in history is God, the administrator delegated to eternity. And his credit institute is Paradise. Billions of faithfuls, for centuries, have invested in the hope of God, expecting redemption in eternal life. And since the celestial agency is going bankrupt, nothing is left of its capital, on which the hopes of six billion faithful consumers rely. Capitalism is a project of universal anthropology. Humans primarily are beings who desire. Not in an hedonistic, but in a materialistic sense: in the modern period, Westerners have looked for felicity through the possession of objects and the consumption of commodities.Peter Sloterdijk Banker Sayings By Peter Sloterdijk: The biggest and, outwardly, most trustful banker in history is God, the administrator delegated to
No one ever felt sorry for a banker.Dominic Lawson Banker Sayings By Dominic Lawson: No one ever felt sorry for a banker.
[Farmer] went to dozens of American and Canadian universities and colleges, preaching his O for the P [Preferential Option for the Poor] gospel, and to South Africa, where he debated a World Bank official at an international AIDS conference. "Africans must learn to curb their sexual appetites," the banker remarked, and Farmer replied, "I want to talk about other bankers, not the World Bankers, but bankers in general. My suspicion is they're not getting a lot of sex, because they spend a lot of time screwing the poor.Tracy Kidder Banker Sayings By Tracy Kidder: [Farmer] went to dozens of American and Canadian universities and colleges, preaching his O for

One thing I know from living with Jack is that war, any war, stains a man deep, and nothing can get the stain out. They can wear clothes like a rancher or a banker, but the stains are under there, never far from the surface of their skin.Nancy E. Turner Banker Sayings By Nancy E. Turner: One thing I know from living with Jack is that war, any war, stains a
Some would say a whore don't have no expectation of Heaven. I'd say, if she gives value for cash, she's got a better shot at God's blessing than your average banker. Jesus loved Mary Magdalene. He kicked over tables when He met a moneylender.Elizabeth Bear Banker Sayings By Elizabeth Bear: Some would say a whore don't have no expectation of Heaven. I'd say, if she
We think that we are generous because we credit our neighbor with those virtues that are likely to benefit ourselves.

Chicago's privatization mania began during Mayor Richard M. Daley's administration, which ran from 1989 to 2011. Under his successor, Rahm Emanuel, the trend has continued apace. For Rahm's investment banker buddies, the trend has been a boon. For citizens? Not so much.Rick Perlstein Banker Sayings By Rick Perlstein: Chicago's privatization mania began during Mayor Richard M. Daley's administration, which ran from 1989 to
Let's say I will rip your life apart. Me and my banker friends.
How can he explain that to him? The world is not run from where he thinks. Not from border fortresses, not even from Whitehall. The world is run from Antwerp, from Florence, from places he has never imagined; from Lisbon, from where the ships with sails of silk drift west and are burned up in the sun. Not from the castle walls, but from counting houses, not be the call of the bugle, but by the click of the abacus, not by the grate and click of the mechanism of the gun but by the scrape of the pen on the page of the promissory note that pays for the gun and the gunsmith and the powder and shot.
Hilary Mantel Banker Sayings By Hilary Mantel: Let's say I will rip your life apart. Me and my banker friends.How can he
So, about the only difference I see between a thief and a banker most times is a college degree.Dennis Lehane Banker Sayings By Dennis Lehane: So, about the only difference I see between a thief and a banker most times
When the great Greek cry breaks into the Latin of the Mass, as old as Christianity itself, it may surprise some to learn that there are a good many people in church who really do say kyrie eleison and mean exactly what they say. But anyhow, they mean what they say rather more than a man who begins a letter with "Dear Sir" means what he says. "Dear" is emphatically a dead word; in that place it has ceased to have any meaning. It is exactly what the Protestants would allege of Popish rites and forms; it is done rapidly, ritually, and without any memory even of the meaning of the rite. When Mr. Jones the solicitor uses it to Mr. Brown the banker, he does not mean that the banker is dear to him, or that his heart is filled with Christian love, even so much as the heart of some poor ignorant Papist listening to the Mass.G.K. Chesterton Banker Sayings By G.K. Chesterton: When the great Greek cry breaks into the Latin of the Mass, as old as

Samantha: Listen, you need to get your head around the demographics of this place. So first of all you've got your blue collars - tradies, we call them. We've got a lot of tradies in Pirriwee. Like my Stu. Salt of the earth. Or salt of the sea, because they all surf, of course. Most of the tradies grew up here and never left. Then you've got your alternative types. Your dippy hippies. And in the last ten years or so, all these wealthy execs and banker wankers have moved in and built massive McMansions up on the cliffs. But! There's only one primary school for all our kids! So at school events you've got a plumber, a banker and a crystal healer standing around trying to make conversation. It's hilarious. No wonder we had a riot.Liane Moriarty Banker Sayings By Liane Moriarty: Samantha: Listen, you need to get your head around the demographics of this place. So

Caleb rocked back on his heels, surprised by how good her husky laughter and their repartee made him feel. He wasn't a man given to bantering with women - with anyone for that matter. Out here in the wilderness, with a woman about to give birth, he wasn't the banker or the hotel owner. I'm just a man trying to hold his guilt and terror at bay and make sure this mother and child survive.Debra Holland Banker Sayings By Debra Holland: Caleb rocked back on his heels, surprised by how good her husky laughter and their

Japan's economy had remained strong. So called 'Dutch' learning- useful Western knowledge- was circulating in Japan well before Commodore Perry's arrival. A strong local tradition of banker-merchants and an efficient tax collection system meant that the Japanese economy was not crippled by foreign loans of the kind that banished Egypt, the first non-Western country to modernize, to the ranks of permanent losers in the international economy.Pankaj Mishra Banker Sayings By Pankaj Mishra: Japan's economy had remained strong.

A banker can be as called and as pleasing to God as Billy Graham may be when he preaches. A brewer can serve as valuable a role in the kingdom of God as a missionary, a priest, or a pope. This is the truth of Christianity and this, too, is a core truth of the Guinness story.Stephen Mansfield Banker Sayings By Stephen Mansfield: A banker can be as called and as pleasing to God as Billy Graham may
The banker, therefore, is not so much primarily a middleman in the commodity "purchasing power" as a producer of this commodity. However, since all reserve funds and savings today usually flow to him, and the total demand for free purchasing power, whether existing or to be created, concentrates on him, he has either replaced private capitalists or become their agent; he has himself become the capitalist par excellence.Joseph A. Schumpeter Banker Sayings By Joseph A. Schumpeter: The banker, therefore, is not so much primarily a middleman in the commodity "purchasing power"

The good citizen when he opens his door in the evening must be banker, golfer, husband, father; not a nomad wandering the desert, a mystic staring at the sky, a debauchee in the slums of San Francisco, a soldier heading a revolution, a pariah howling with skepticism and solitude.Virginia Woolf Banker Sayings By Virginia Woolf: The good citizen when he opens his door in the evening must be banker, golfer,

I did not have a mobile phone in 1993. No one did, except the occasional banker or Hollywood star seeming smart, or the main character in 'American Psycho.' In 1993, every day was 'let's get lost.'

The world is God's workshop; the raw materials are His; the ideals and patterns are His; our hands are "the members of Christ," our reward His recognition. Blacksmith or banker, draughtsman or doctor, painter or preacher, servant or statesman, must work as unto the Lord, not merely making a living, but devoting a life. This makes life sacramental, turning its water into wine. This is twice blessed, blessing both the worker and the work.Maltbie Davenport Babcock Banker Sayings By Maltbie Davenport Babcock: The world is God's workshop; the raw materials are His; the ideals and patterns are
Community. A friend started a real estate brokerage a few years ago. By the time she'd added her second employee, she was a pillar of her 35,000-person community. No rule says that only the local banker or car dealer can organize the program to raise supplemental funds for the public library or send the high school band on a well-earned special trip. Participating in community affairs, with time more than dollars, is good business from day one.

The Creator puts life into motion, and doesn't just sit around all day moving each and every piece this way and that on his whims. If life was just one gigantic board game, God isn't the banker or the leader, or even a collection of all the players. God is just the one who invented the game.

She's better off without you." Livingston narrowed his eyes. "I see which way the land lies. If I didn't trust Miss Hamilton's superior values and morals - " Nick's fist snaked out, aiming for the banker's nose. Livingston barely had time to turn his head before Nick's knuckles connected with the man's cheek, sending him stumbling back against the wall. The seascape crashed to the ground. With shock and disbelief in his eyes, Livingston slid to the floor, cradling the rapidly forming red mark on his face. Nick shook his head in disgust. Pity he hadn't broken the man's nose.Debra Holland Banker Sayings By Debra Holland: She's better off without you." Livingston narrowed his eyes. "I see which way the land

I like being married to someone who does what I do, and we can talk for hours about all of this stuff that I struggle with and all this stuff that he struggles with because we're struggling with the same things.

As the original Mary Poppins budget of five million dollars continued to grow, I never saw a sad face around the entire Studio. And this made me nervous. I knew the picture would have to gross 10 million dollars for us to break even. But still there was no negative head-shaking. No prophets of doom. Even Roy was happy. He didn't even ask me to show the unfinished picture to a banker. The horrible thought struck me - suppose the staff had finally conceded that I knew what I was doing.Walt Disney Banker Sayings By Walt Disney: As the original Mary Poppins budget of five million dollars continued to grow, I never
If your banker breaks, you snap; if your apothecary by mistake sends you poison in your pills, you die. True, you may say that, by exceeding caution, you may possibly escape these and the multitudinous other evil chances of life.

Main Street is the climax of civilization. That this Ford car might stand in front of the Bon Ton Store, Hannibal invaded Rome and Erasmus wrote in Oxford cloisters.

I didn't want to be an accountant; I found myself being a banker, which was a bit different. I went to university, and I was going to do a Ph.D. in the States, but I didn't get the funding for it, so I had two years where I had a bit of a wobble and didn't really know what I wanted to do, and I ended up working as a banker.Owain Yeoman Banker Sayings By Owain Yeoman: I didn't want to be an accountant; I found myself being a banker, which was
