John Pierpont Morgan (1837-1913)

“A man always has two reasons for doing anything / a good reason and the real reason.”

“No problem can be solved until it is reduced to some simple form. The changing of a vague difficulty into a specific, concrete form is a very essential element in thinking.”

“The wise man bridges the gap by laying out the path by means of which he can get from where he is to where he wants to go.”

“Well, I don’t know as I want a lawyer to tell me what I cannot do. I hire him to tell how to do what I want to do.”

“When you expect things to happen – strangely enough – they do happen.”

“Of all forms of tyranny the least attractive and the most vulgar is the tyranny of mere wealth, the tyranny of plutocracy.”

“If you have to ask how much it costs, you can’t afford it.”

“I made a fortune getting out too soon.”

“When the house is on fire good girls have to get out as well as the bad ones.”

“Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need an astrologer.”

“Remember, my son, that any man who is a bear on the future of this country will go broke.”
