Business Quotes

Business men are portrayed as shrewd and tasteless in movies and fiction. Rarely are they shown as light and fun loving individuals. To an extent, these representations are true. Business is an act of selling in order to make profits. And it isn't wrong to assume that businessmen love money over other things and financial integrity is the most valued thing among them.
