There is a tendency among some businesses to criticize and belittle their competitors. This is a bad procedure. Praise them. Learn from them. There are times when you can co-operate with them to their advantage and to yours! Speak well of them and they will speak well of you. You can’t destroy good ideas. Take advantage of them. George Matthew Adams Report Abuse
This is something we should all do regardless of industry.

Our Creator has put in us hungers that this earth cannot satisfy. We cannot be completely self-contained on earth. Physical sense cannot give us a full life, nor can knowledge alone. No life is full unless it is linked to something that goes on after we are dead . . . If we have nothing more to live for than just to get ahead in a competitive system, then democracy will go down before other philosophies. Ralph W. Sockman Report Abuse
