Andrew Carnegie   Category: Power

Mr. Morgan buys his partners; I grow my own.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

No person will make a great business who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit.
Andrew Carnegie   Category: Leadership

Andrew Carnegie   Category:

Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his lifetime for the good of the community.
Andrew Carnegie   Category: Finance

Andrew Carnegie   Category:

The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

The first man gets the oyster, the second man gets the shell.
Andrew Carnegie   Category: Leadership

The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he is justly entitled.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

The men who have succeeded are men who have chosen one line and stuck to it.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

The way to become rich is to put all your eggs in one basket and then watch that basket.
Andrew Carnegie   Category: Finance

There is little success where there is little laughter.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

There is no class so pitiably wretched as that which possesses money and nothing else.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

Whatever I engage in, I must push inordinately.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

You cannot push anyone up the ladder unless he is willing to climb.
Andrew Carnegie   Category:

You must capture and keep the heart of the original and supremely able man before his brain can do its best.
