A quote by Adam Smith on self-interest is the topic of this blog post.

“It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.” Adam Smith

“This quote is undoubtedly quoted more often than most of Adam Smith’s other quotes for a good reason. The absolute truth of this quote cannot be denied and I absolutely agree with this quote. I do not doubt for a moment that individuals that are acting in their own self-interest do, at least the great majority of the time serve the common interest.   I absolutely support the right of any person to act in their own self-interest as long as they do not infringe on the rights of others. Where I personally part company with many people who tend to quote Adam Smith is the tendency to use this quote to justify the most greedy and unscrupulous behavior imaginable such as that engaged in by many of the big banks and other big corporations, particularly on Wall Street.” Stan Burman

Quote by Aristotle on quality

Quote by Aristotle on quality
Quote by Aristotle on quality,

A quote by Aristotle on quality is the topic of this blog post.

“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” Aristotle

“This excellent quote by Aristotle shows that our habits affect us in many different ways. In essence our habits become our life to a great extent.  For some people nowadays quality is just an act but I would much prefer to do business with someone for whom quality is not just a mere act but is their habit. If someone does everything in their power to practice the habit of quality in their business or personal life they will begin to reap the rewards sooner or later. It does take time to practice the habit of quality but I know for fact that it is well worth the effort as I have seen the positive effects in my own business and personal life.” Stan Burman

Quote by Thomas Edison on opportunity.

A quote by Thomas Edison on opportunity is the topic of this blog post.

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Thomas Edison.

“Now that is one great quote by Thomas Edison! With so many people nowadays thinking that they can get something for nothing this quote is very relevant.  I know from my own personal life experience how true this quote really is.

In January 2010 I was looking for a certain sample legal document online when I visited a website where someone was selling some sample legal documents.  At the time my business was very slow due to the bad economy. I had moved out of Southern California up to Southern Oregon. Having worked in California and Federal litigation since 1995 I thought to myself why not try selling sample legal documents myself.  I knew I had at least several hundred documents on my computer that I had created in my work. All I had to do was remove all of the names, case numbers and other identifying information and then upload them to the website. I modified the documents and created some samples and uploaded them to the website. In two or three days I started getting e-mails from the website with the title, “You have sold a document!

I now have over 300 sample legal documents that I sell online and I am still creating more.  My online business has increased quite a bit since I started back in 2010. I now sell more documents in one week than I used to sell in one month back in 2010 when I started. This has allowed me to relocate to Asia and begin a new life. All because I saw the opportunity and acted on it. Yes it was work but it was worth every minute of it!” Stan Burman

Quote by George Washington on freedom of speech

Quote by George Washington on freedom of speech.
A quote by George Washington on freedom of speech is the topic of this blog post.

A quote by George Washington on freedom of speech is the topic of this blog post.

“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington

“George Washington is absolutely correct as freedom of speech is clearly the most important of all freedoms because without freedom of speech there can be no freedom. The Founding Fathers clearly understood this which is why they put freedom of speech in the First Amendment. Dictators throughout history have always attempted to stifle freedom of speech because they knew that if people feel free to speak their minds without repercussions things might get out of hand and a revolution might start. Sadly free speech in many countries throughout the world is being curtailed even in the United States. Once freedom of speech is gone the rest of the freedoms will also be banned and then what George Washington warned about will come true.” Stan Burman

Richard Bach quote on happiness

“If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.” Richard Bach

“This is an excellent quote by Richard Bach. It should be self-evident that true happiness comes from within and is not affected by outside events.  People who are truly happy are not affected by the actions of other people or what they think. Instead they are focused on their inner happiness. I am now striving to achieve true happiness by taking this quotation to heart. I know that I still have a ways to go before I reach my goal but I also know that I have come a long way from where I started. And my progress so far is all that matters to me.” Stan Burman

Quote by Alfred A. Montapert on destiny

A quote by Alfred A. Montapert on destiny is the topic of this blog post

“Your life will be no better than the plans you make and the action you take. You are the architect and builder of your own life, fortune, destiny.” Alfred A. Montapert

“You are the captain at the helm of your own life you are the captain of your fate, your destiny. The single most important factor that will determine the course of your life in the long run will be the actions that you take based on the goals and plans that you have made.  Some people might consider this quote frightening but I find it exhilarating as well as liberating as it is positive proof that I am in control of my destiny.” Stan Burman
