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]

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]
The intent of sincere humanitarians is to do good to society, just as the intent of the child who kills a bird by to much fondling is to do good to the bird.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
