Famous quotes containing the word industry:

    For almost seventy years the life insurance industry has been a smug sacred cow feeding the public a steady line of sacred bull.
    Ralph Nader (b. 1934)

    I have never yet spoken from a public platform about women in industry that someone has not said, “But things are far better than they used to be.” I confess to impatience with persons who are satisfied with a dangerously slow tempo of progress for half of society in an age which requires a much faster tempo than in the days that “used to be.” Let us use what might be instead of what has been as our yardstick!
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)

    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgement; and he betrays instead of serving you if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)
