As a sales and marketing guy for many years, I'm still amazed at ole Henry's wit, insight, and marketing instincts.
Mine is "Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success"
"If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses", and that my friends is why he only got 22 horsepower out of the Model T, when with aftermarket parts, you could get three times, that.
I have 2: "They'll buy what I sell them" and "Your Fired"!
"Quality means doing the right thing when no one is looking."
"Whether you think you can or you think you can't- you are right."
My favorite quote about Henry Ford came from Will Rogers, " It'll probably be a hundred years before we know if Henry Ford helped us or hurt us but he sure didn't leave us where he found us."
I have had that one in my profile for a while.
Faster Horses reminds me of the the Tom T Hall song.
"Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it." Henry Ford.
Kirk, thats the first thing I thought of too!! Faster horses, younger women, older whiskey, more money!!!! Words to live by since my divorce
Having a son who suffers from severe Bi-Polar disorder, I like this one......
"When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." Henry Ford.
