„È facile parlare di denaro - e più facile ancora parlare di sesso - di quanto non sia parlare di potere. Le persone che ce l’hanno lo negano; le persone che lo desiderano non vogliono far vedere che ne hanno bramosia; e le persone che lo usano nelle loro macchinazioni lo fanno segretamente.“

„La fiducia in se stessi non è questione di ottimismo o pessimismo, né di una caratteristica personale. E' solo la speranza in buoni risultati.“

„La qualità del servizio sta per essere un argomento di vendita in un ambiente mutevole dove i clienti hanno più scelte.“

„To stay ahead, always have your next idea waiting in the wings.“

„Michael Ward knows. Ward loves railroads. His loves his own railroad company, CSX, which traces its origins to 1827 when the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad was formed as the nation’s first common carrier. He traces his own origins at CSX back thirty-seven years, when he took an analyst job as a newly minted Harvard Business School M. B. A., rising to become chairman, president, and CEO in 2003. And he loves the whole American freight rail industry. “Railroaders are like farmers,” Ward declares. “You heard about the farmer that won the lottery? They said to him, ‘Oh my gosh, you won the lottery; what are you going to do with all that money?’ He said, ‘I’m a farmer and I love farming, and I’m going to farm until every penny of it is gone.’ And I say railroaders are like that. When we make more money, we’re going to invest more back into the infrastructure, so we can strengthen the railroad and grow the business.” Ward may sound like a press release, but that’s exactly how he talks, and why he’s a major industry spokesman. He lavishes praise on industry performance: “While we’ve improved the profitability of the industry, we’ve also cut rates in half of what they were in 1980 for our customers, on an inflation-adjusted basis. We’re providing a more economical product to them, and it’s safer and more reliable. Over the years, as an industry, our train accident rate is down 80 percent; our personal injury rate is down 85 percent; and we’re doing this with about one-third of the workforce we had in 1980.” He calls the industry “the envy of the world.“ Move: Putting America's Infrastructure Back in the Lead: Putting America's Infrastructure Back in the Lead

„Change is disturbing when it is done to us, exhilarating when it is done by us.“

„A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.“

„Confidence isn’t optimism or pessimism, and it’s not a character attribute. It’s the expectation of a positive outcome.“
