The only reason I am glad I am a woman is because I will not have to marry one. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
Rockefeller and his associates did not build the Standard Oil Co. in the board rooms of Wall Street banks. They fought their way to control by rebate and drawback, bribe and blackmail, espionage and price cutting, by ruthless efficiency of organization. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
I came then to a conviction that has never left me: that there is too much for me to attend to in this mortal life without overspeculation on the immortal, that it is not necessary to my peace of mind or to my effort to be a decent and useful person, to have a definite assurance about the affairs of the next world. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
There is no man more dangerous, in a position of power, than he who refuses to accept as a working truth the idea that all a man does should make for rightness and soundness, that even the fixing of a tariff rate must be moral. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
When the business man who fights to secure special privileges, to crowd his competitor off the track by other than fair competitive methods, receives the same summary disdainful ostracism by his fellows that the doctor or lawyer who is 'unprofessional,' the athlete who abuses the rules, receives, we shall have gone a long way toward making commerce a fit pursuit for our young men. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
The quest of the truth had been born in me - the most tragic and incomplete, as well as the most essential, of man's quests. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
I have often found it difficult to explain myself to myself, and I do not often try. ~ Ida Minerva Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Minerva Tarbell
A Magician is not a Magician because he knows tricks, but because he knows Magic - the principles, the fundamentals. ~ Harlan Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Harlan Tarbell
The whole force of the respectable circles to which I belonged, that respectable circle which knew as I did not the value of security won, the slender chance of replacing it if lost or abandoned, was against me. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
A mind truly cultivated never feels that the intellectual process is complete until it can reproduce in some media the thing which it has absorbed. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
It is not alone that justice is wounded by denying women a part in the making of the civilized world - a more immediate wrong is the way the movement for a fuller, freer life for all human beings is hampered. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
Ripe old age, cheerful, useful, and understanding, is one of the finest influences in the world. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
We were raising our standard of living at the expense of our standard of character. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
Many men ridicule the idea that it can be scientifically handled. They tell us the unemployed have always been with us, and always must be. It is the oldest reason in the world for tolerating injustice and misery. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
How defeated and restless the child that is not doing something in which it sees a purpose, a meaning! It is by its self-directed activity that the child, as years pass, finds its work, the thing it wants to do and for which it finally is willing to deny itself pleasure, ease, even sleep and comfort. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
Life is but a collection of habits. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
The theory that the man who raises corn does a more important piece of work than the woman who makes it into bread is absurd. The inference is that the men alone render useful service. But neither man nor woman eats these things until the woman has prepared it. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
My whole theory for the improvement of society is based on a belief in the discipline and the education of the individual to self-control and right doing, for the sake of right doing. I have never seen fundamental improvements imposed from the top by ordinances and laws. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
There is no more effective medicine to apply to feverish public sentiments than figures. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
Imagination is the only key to the future. Without it none exists - with it all things are possible. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
Perhaps our national ambition to standardize ourselves has behind it the notion that democracy means standardization. But standardization is the surest way to destroy the initiative, to denumb the creative impulse above all else essential to the vitality and growth of democratic ideals. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
We are a commercial people. We cannot boast of our arts, our crafts, our cultivation; our boast is in the wealth we produce. As a consequence business success is sanctified, and, practically, any methods which achieve it are justified by a larger and larger class. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
A mind which really lays hold of a subject is not easily detached from it. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
It's always a revolution, you know, when things occur of which you have never happened to hear! ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
In walking through the world there is a choice for a man to make. He can choose the fair and open path, the path which sound ethics, sound democracy, and the common law prescribe, or choose the secret way by which he can get the better of his fellow man. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
One of the most depressing features of the ethical side of the matter is that instead of such methods arousing contempt they are more or less openly admired. And this is logical. Canonise 'business success,' and men who made a success like that of the Standard Oil Trust become national heroes! ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
Speculation in oil stock companies was another great evil ... From the first, oil men had to contend with wild fluctuations in the price of oil ... Such fluctuations were the natural element of the speculator, and he came early, buying in quantities and holding in storage tanks for higher prices. If enough oil was held, or if the production fell off, up went the price, only to be knocked down by the throwing of great quantities of stocks on the market. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
A popular disturbance never remains long in the full control of those who start it. ~ Ida Tarbell
Tarbell quotes by Ida Tarbell
There is no gaming table in the world where loaded dice are tolerated, no athletic field where men must not start fair. Yet Mr. Rockefeller has systematically played with loaded dice, and it is doubtful if there has ever been a time since 1872 when he has run a race with a competitor and started fair. ~ Ida Tarbell
