Henry Ford on work and life

Here are wonderfully insightful quotes on work and life from American business tycoon Henry Ford.

  • You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.
  • There is no man living that can not do more than he thinks he can.
  • Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
  • As we advance in life we learn the limits of our abilities.
  • I am looking for a lot of men who have an infinite capacity to not know what can’t be done.
  • Don’t find fault, find a remedy.
  • Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.
  • The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.
  • It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.
  • Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.
  • There are no big problems, there are just a lot of little problems.
  • Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.
  • Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
  • A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large.
  • It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages.
  • A bore is a person who opens his mouth and puts his feats in it.
  • Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
  • You will find men who want to be carried on the shoulders of others, who think that the world owes them a living. They don’t seem to see that we must all lift together and pull together.
  • Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.
