Famous quotes containing the word exploit:

    The only way to get along is to seek the difficult job, always do it well, and see that you get paid for it properly. Oh, yes, and don’t forget to exploit men all you can. Because if you don’t they will exploit you.
    El Dorado Jones (1861–1932)

    Fools make researches and wise men exploit them.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)

    Abused as we abuse it at present, dramatic art is in no sense cathartic; it is merely a form of emotional masturbation.... It is the rarest thing to find a player who has not had his character affected for the worse by the practice of his profession. Nobody can make a habit of self-exhibition, nobody can exploit his personality for the sake of exercising a kind of hypnotic power over others, and remain untouched by the process.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
