Quotes of Colonel Harland Sanders

1. “I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it.”

2. “I think a dream is just a suggestion to start something out, do something.”

3. “One has to remember that every failure can be a stepping-stone to something better…”

4. “You got to like your work. You have got to like what you are doing, you have got to be doing something worthwhile so you can like it—because it is worthwhile, that it makes a difference, don’t you see?”

5. “Don’t be against things so much as for things.”

6. “Work is the basis for living. I’ll never retire. A man will rust out quicker than he’ll ever wear out. And I’ll be darned if I’ll ever rust out.”

7. “The easy way is efficacious and speedy, the hard way arduous and long. But, as the clock ticks, the easy way becomes harder and the hard way becomes easier. And as the calendar records the years, it becomes increasingly evident that the easy way rests hazardously upon shifting sands, whereas the hard way builds solidly a foundation of confidence that cannot be swept away.”

8. “Hard work beats all the tonics and vitamins in the world.”

9. “Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.”

10. One has to remember that every failure can be a stepping-stone to something better…
Colonel Sanders
