Every major food company now has an organic division. There’s more capital going into organic agriculture than ever before.
I never had many problems to do my music and to give it to a record company. Rarely do they try to argue with me about my music, probably because it’s still too far-out.
I think we have the same goals in mind. We are not planning on just all of a sudden taking a film and separating. Hopefully one day she can direct me in something, or I will direct her. Or we’ll produce a movie under our company’s name.
There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else.

One of the things I’ve had the advantage of, growing up and being close to the top management of this company and other companies for most of my life, is seeing how CEOs start to believe in their own infallibility. And that really scares me.
We believe that electricity exists, because the electric company keeps sending us bills for it, but we cannot figure out how it travels inside wires.
We are working with a biotech company, Calypte, which has designed a urine test for the HIV antibody.
Globalization has changed us into a company that searches the world, not just to sell or to source, but to find intellectual capital – the world’s best talents and greatest ideas.

I work constantly but I work at a lot of different things. You know, I run a theater company in New York, I direct plays, act in plays, in movies, so I try to keep it eclectic.
That co-operation and peace rather than industrial strife and strikes will best promote the prosperity of the employees the company and all of the people and even strengthen the nation.
Why are we here? I think many people assume, wrongly, that a company exists solely to make money. Money is an important part of a company’s existence, if the company is any good. But a result is not a cause. We have to go deeper and find the real reason for our being.
Going to work for a large company is like getting on a train. Are you going sixty miles an hour or is the train going sixty miles an hour and you’re just sitting still?
What pisses me off is when I’ve got seven or eight record company fat pig men sitting there telling me what to wear.
I continue to have a special pride and passion for AOL, and I strongly believe that AOL – once the leading Internet company in the world – can return to its past greatness.
Rascals are always sociable, more’s the pity! and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others’ company.
When I was about seven, I started touring the globe as part of New York’s La MaMa theater company – without my parents!
The tastes of country music fans are not limited to the narrow range defined by consultants and programmers and record company moguls.
We don’t take a macro view… We’d look at every company to figure out if trade sanctions are helpful or hurtful.

The partnership over the 28 years we had the company afforded him the opportunity to experiment and live his life as an artist and a label honcho and do what he wanted to do. It afforded me the same opportunity.
The display of grief makes more demands than grief itself. How few men are sad in their own company.
I was forced to be an artist and a CEO from the beginning, so I was forced to be like a businessman because when I was trying to get a record deal, it was so hard to get a record deal on my own that it was either give up or create my own company.
When Jackie got his big contract at CBS and was putting together what turned out to be almost a stock company of players, he remembered Frank and said, ‘Get me that kid who played the jail sketch.’
This kid’s excited because he’s with Bad Company and I’m excited because I’m with Chuck Berrys’ son.
Today we’re focused on small acquisitions to add technology where necessary. I think it’s fair to say we’re not out looking for a large one, but I think it’s also very fair to say that as a public company you can never say never.

Not only I lost what I had in the ship, but from the captain and the company generally what was good or worth the taking was carried away; all which was done unknown to the emperor.
It’s true, I had an extremely delicious life, but that was my life at home, and perhaps because I was only a child, or for whatever reasons, I found the company of others, especially other boys, quite terrifying and upsetting.
