Beware the naked man who offers you his shirt

Quotes/Notes from Harvey Mackay from his best seller, "Beware the naked man who offers you his shirt"

What matters with anything you intend to use is what you can do with it, not what you can get it for. If I had played it smart, I'd never owned the property, or Mackay Envelope, for that matter.

A dream is always a bargain, no matter what you pay for it.

I've kept notes on every out-of-town trip for as long as I can remember. Not the usual stuff about what hotel to stay at in each city, but much more detail than that. What floor to stay on and even what room to ask for. Will it be an ocean view or mountain view? Every hotel has it room overlooking a mine shaft or next to a dumbwaiter or that were skipped over in the last renovation.

Intellectuals - Paul Johnson

PR people are experts at papering over weaknesses and making them appear to be strengths.

"Would the number-three brain surgeon in the world retire?"

"I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those seven hundred ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work"

Failure is an attitude, not an outcome.
