9781586857684: The Quotable Manager: Inspiration for Business and Life

A good quote can capture the essence of an idea or teaching and tell it in a few words-concisely and with impact. The Quotable Manager takes simple, meaningful, and easy-to-remember quotes, puts them right at the fingertips of today's busy managers and leaders, and becomes an excellent resource when a thoughtful word is needed.
More than 600 quotes are collected from a diverse pool of leaders and historical figures including Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Julius Caesar, Michael Jordan, John Ruskin, Helen Keller, Mother Teresa, Confucius, John Wayne, and more. They offer inspiring advice and wisdom on topics such as attitude, leadership, perseverance, patience, trust, fairness, planning, career, failure, and integrity. Divided into twenty chapters, each begins with an inspiring story or anecdote about a person who has come to exemplify that characteristic.
Sample quotes:
You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.
Margaret Thatcher
No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.
Helen Keller
Be a good listener, your ears never get you in trouble.
Frank Tyger
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward
Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.
Art Linkletter
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
Charles Darwin
When you fall in a river, you're no longer a fisherman; you're a swimmer.
Gene Hill
Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.
Roy L. Smith
The only man who makes no mistakes is the man who never does anything.
Eleanor Roosevelt
They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.
Carl W. Buechner
