Famous quotes containing the words opportunity and/or economic:

    There never is but one opportunity of a kind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When you overpay small people you frighten them. They know that their merits or activities entitle them to no such sums as they are receiving. As a result their boss soars out of economic into magic significance. He becomes a source of blessings rather than wages. Criticism is sacrilege, doubt is heresy.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)
