Andrew Carnegie
No amount of ability is of the slightest avail without honor.
Carnegie quotes
While the law [of competition] may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it insures the survival of the fittest in every department. We accept and welcome, therefore, as conditions to which we must accommodate ourselves, great inequality of environment, the concentration of business, industrial and commercial, in the hands of the few, and the law of competition between these, as being not only beneficial, but essential for the future progress of the race.
Carnegie
Upon the sacredness of property civilization itself depends—the right of the laborer to his hundred dollars in the savings bank, and equally the legal right of the millionaire to his millions.




Carnegie Andrew quotes
Those who would administer wisely must, indeed, be wise, for one of the serious obstacles to the improvement of our race is indiscriminate charity.
Carnegie Andrew
The problem of our age is the proper administration of wealth, so that the ties of brotherhood may still bind together the rich and poor in harmonious relationship.
Andrew Carnegie quotes
Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his lifetime for the good of the community.
Andrew Carnegie
Three generations from shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves.
Carnegie Andrew quotes
How very little the millionaire has beyond the peasant, and how very often his additions tend not to happiness but to misery.
Carnegie
The man who dies thus rich dies disgraced.
Carnegie Andrew
I don’t believe in God. My god is patriotism. Teach a man to be a good citizen and you have solved the problem of life.
Andrew Carnegie
The average person puts about 25 percent of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50 percent of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100 percent.




Andrew Carnegie quotes
As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.
Andrew Carnegie
Such, in my opinion, is the true Gospel concerning Wealth, obedience to which is destined some day to solve the problem of the Rich and the Poor, and to bring "Peace on earth, among men Good Will."
Carnegie quotes
Watch the costs, and the profits will take care of themselves.
Carnegie Andrew
Anything in life worth having is worth working for!
