Vilfredo Pareto

Vilfredo Pareto

Italian economist and sociologist
Human behaviour reveals uniformities which constitute natural laws. If these uniformities did not exist, then there would be neither social science nor political economy, and even the study of history would largely be useless. In effect, if the future actions of men having nothing in common with their past actions, our knowledge of them, although possibly satisfying our curiosity by way of an interesting story, would be entirely useless to us as a guide in life.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Give me a fruitful error anytime, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Assume that the new elite were clearly and simply to proclaim its intentions which are to supplant the old elite; no one would come to its assistance, it would be defeated before having fought a battle. On the contrary, it appears to be asking nothing for itself, well knowing that without asking anything in advance it will obtain what it wants as a consequence of its victory.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is a know fact that almost all revolutions have been the work, not of the common people, but of the aristocracy, and especially of the decayed part of the aristocracy.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you're Noah, and your ark is about to sink, look for the elephants first, because you can throw over a bunch of cats, dogs, squirrels, and everything else that is just a small animal and your ark will keep sinking. But if you can find one elephant to get overboard, you're in much better shape.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
