10 Sure Fire Ways To Negotiate A Contract Like A Pro

Famous quotes containing the words negotiate, contract, ways, fire and/or pro:

    Sometimes my wife complains that she’s overwhelmed with work and just can’t take one of the kids, for example, to a piano lesson. I’ll offer to do it for her, and then she’ll say, “No, I’ll do it.” We have to negotiate how much I trespass into that mother role—it’s not given up easily.
    —Anonymous Father. As quoted in Women and Their Fathers, by Victoria Secunda, ch. 3 (1992)

    A contract for better for worse is a contract that should not be tolerated.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    There are many ways of discarding [books]. You can give them to friends,—or enemies,—or to associations or to poor Southern libraries. But the surest way is to lend them. Then they never come back to bother you.
    Carolyn Wells (1862?–1942)

    Not till the fire is dying in the grate,
    Look we for any kinship with the stars.
    Oh, wisdom never comes when it is gold,
    And the great price we paid for it full worth:
    We have it only when we are half earth.
    Little avails that coinage to the old!
    George Meredith (1828–1909)

    It is sweet and honourable to die for one’s country.
    [Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.]
    Horace [Quintus Horatius Flaccus] (65–8 B.C.)
