Henry Ford's State Of Mind

Every once in a while I run across a great quote, and allot of my favorites are usually from ole Henry . Having been a resident of Dearborn 90% of my life plus being surrounded by Ford Motor Company and its history, these quotes make me proud to be where I am. Please check them out.

Words of success by Henry Ford

I am looking for a lot of
men who have an infinite capacity to not know what can't be done.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
When everything seems to be going
against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
Quality means doing it right when no one is looking
You can't
build a reputation on what you are going to do.
One of the greatest
discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do.
Chop your own wood, and it will warm you twice.
It has been my
observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.
money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.
There is one
rule for the industrialist and that is: Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.
idealist is a person who helps other people to be prosperous.
business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.
If you
think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.
find fault, find a remedy
There is
joy in work. There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.
Henry Ford
