Jeff Bezos ( 1964 - ), founder Amazon.com, Blue Origin: "Your brand is what others say about you when you're not in the room...Life's too short to hangout with people who aren't resourceful...Don't tell people what you'll do. Do it and shock them. After shocking them, stay silent. Keep shocking and keep enjoying...If you don't understand the details of your business, you will fail...We can't be in survival mode, we have to be in growth mode...One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out...Work hard, have fun, and make history."

Herman Goring ( 1893 - 1946 ), German WW1 Red Ace pilot, Nazi Party member, Hiter's right-hand man, Commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe, convicted WW2 war criminal: "Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country...Education is dangerous—every educated person is a future enemy...Whenever I hear the word culture, I reach for my revolver.”
