Weekend Quote from a Book - The Trend of Future Earnings
In recent years increasing importance has been laid upon the trend of earnings. Needless to say, a record of increasing profits is a favorable sign. Financial theory has gone further, however, and has sought to estimate future earnings by projecting the past trend into the future and then used this projection as a basis for valuing the business. Because figures are used in this process, people mistakenly believe that it is "mathematically sound." But while a trend shown in the past is a fact, a "future trend" is only an assumption. The factors that we mentioned previously as militating against the maintenance of abnormal prosperity or depression are equally opposed to the indefinite continuance of an upward or downward trend. By the time the trend has become clearly noticeable, conditions may well be ripe for a change.

Weekend Quote from a Book - Trading on news
Why is it that you can’t hear some favorable piece of news on the radio or TV or read it on the Internet and use that information to make a favorable trade? Because an army of profit-seeking, full-time professionals will have likely already pounced on the news to drive the stock price up before you have a chance to act. That’s why the most important pieces of news (such as takeover offers) are announced when the market is closed. By the time trading opens the next day, prices already reflect the offer.

Weekend Quote - Difference
There is little difference in people,
but that little difference makes a big difference.
The little difference is attitude.
The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.

Weekend Quote from a Book - Job Security
I want to hammer home a point here: the nature of large, global corporate organizations in today’s tumultuous markets is such that they can and should change frequently to stay alive. Strategies will change. Business plans will change. Organization structure will change. Your position is not secure, no matter how well you do your job.

Weekend Quote - Hard Work
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.

Weekend Quote from a Book - Repaying Debts
Dabasir borrowed from his friends and could not repay them. Things went from bad to worse. His wife returned to her father and he left Babylon. He fell in with robbers and were taken to Damascus and sold as slaves. Dabasir was purchased for two silver pieces by a Syrian desert chief and became a camel tender for his daughter who is intrigued with Dabasir’s background.

“If a man has within him the soul of a free man, will he not become respected and honored in his own city in spite of his misfortune?” “Have you a desire to repay the just debts you owe in Babylon? She parried.

“Yes I have the desire, but see no way.” Said Dabasir.

“…thou hast but the contemptible soul of a slave. No man is otherwise who cannot respect himself and no man can respect himself who does not repay honest debts.”

Dabasir’s debts were his enemy and he had been run out of town. If he had stood up and fought like a man, he would have found respect.

“If I had the soul of a free man, I would force my way back into Babylon, repay the people who had trusted me, bring happiness to my wife who truly loved me and bring peace and contentment to me parents.”
