American Businessman

Famous quotes containing the words businessman and/or american:

    If when a businessman speaks of minority employment, or air pollution, or poverty, he speaks in the language of a certified public accountant analyzing a corporate balance sheet, who is to know that he understands the human problems behind the statistical ones? If the businessman would stop talking like a computer printout or a page from the corporate annual report, other people would stop thinking he had a cash register for a heart. It is as simple as that—but that isn’t simple.
    Louis B. Lundborg (1906–1981)

    In every American there is an air of incorrigible innocence, which seems to conceal a diabolical cunning.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
