What is business concern?

Famous quotes containing the words concern and/or business:

    A prince must be prudent enough to know how to escape the bad reputation of those vices that would lose the state for him, and must protect himself from those that will not lose it for him, if this is possible; but if he cannot, he need not concern himself unduly if he ignores these less serious vices.
    Niccolò Machiavelli (1469–1527)

    In business be as able as you can, but do not be cunning; cunning is the dark sanctuary of incapacity.
