Founder of the Standard Oil Company

Rockefeller was a business titan.

  • Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.
  • There is nothing in this world that can compare with the Christian fellowship; nothing that can satisfy but Christ.
  • If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
  • I know of nothing more despicable and pathetic than a man who devotes all the hours of the waking day to the making of money for money’s sake.
  • I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people’s efforts than 100% of my own efforts.
