No one can read with profit that which he cannot learn to read with pleasure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is divided into three terms - that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present to live better in the future.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The ideology of this America wants to establish reassurance through Imitation. But profit defeats ideology, because the consumers want to be thrilled not only by the guarantee of the Good but also by the shudder of the Bad.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Without self-respect there can be no genuine success. Success won at the cost of self-respect is not success for what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own self-respect.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

A generation which has passed through the shop has absorbed standards and ambitions which are not of those of spaciousness, and cannot get away from them. Everything with them is done as though for sale, and they naturally have in view the greatest possible benefit, profit and that end of the stuff that will make the best show.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the state of nature profit is the measure of right.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
War has been the most convenient pseudo-solution for the problems of twentieth-century capitalism. It provides the incentives to modernization and technological revolution which the market and the pursuit of profit do only fitfully and by accident, it makes the unthinkable (such as votes for women and the abolition of unemployment) not merely thinkable but practicable. What is equally important, it can re-create communities of men and give a temporary sense to their lives by uniting them against foreigners and outsiders. This is an achievement beyond the power of the private enterprise economy when left to itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The smell of profit is clean and sweet, whatever the source.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What men have called friendship is only a social arrangement, a mutual adjustment of interests, an interchange of services given and received; it is, in sum, simply a business from which those involved propose to derive a steady profit for their own self-love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Under the rules of a society that cannot distinguish between profit and profiteering, between money defined as necessity and money defined as luxury, murder is occasionally obligatory and always permissible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Money is like fire, an element as little troubled by moralizing as earth, air and water. Men can employ it as a tool or they can dance around it as if it were the incarnation of a god. Money votes socialist or monarchist, finds a profit in pornography or translations from the Bible, commissions Rembrandt and underwrites the technology of Auschwitz. It acquires its meaning from the uses to which it is put.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Unless you have prepared yourself to profit by your chance, the opportunity will only make you ridiculous. A great occasion is valuable to you just in proportion as you have educated yourself to make use of it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Remember your past mistakes just long enough to profit by them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For it is mutual trust, even more than mutual interest that holds human associations together. Our friends seldom profit us but they make us feel safe. Marriage is a scheme to accomplish exactly that same end.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man may be a tough, concentrated, successful money-maker and never contribute to his country anything more than a horrible example. A manager may be tough and practical, squeezing out, while the going is good, the last ounce of profit and dividend, and may leave behind him an exhausted industry and a legacy of industrial hatred. A tough manager may never look outside his own factory walls or be conscious of his partnership in a wider world. I often wonder what strange cud such men sit chewing when their working days are over, and the accumulating riches of the mind have eluded them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Madness is tonic and invigorating. It makes the sane more sane. The only ones who are unable to profit by it are the insane.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Research is subordinated (not to a long-term social benefit) but to an immediate commercial profit. Currently, disease (not health) is one of the major sources of profit for the pharmaceutical industry, and the doctors are willing agents of those profits.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Adversity is a great teacher, but this teacher makes us pay dearly for its instruction; and often the profit we derive, is not worth the price we paid.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Thou shalt understand that it is a science most profitable, and passing all other sciences, for to learn to die. For a man to know that he shall die, that is common to all men; as much as there is no man that may ever live or he hath hope or trust thereof; but thou shalt find full few that hath this cunning to learn to die. I shall give thee the mystery of this doctrine; the which shall profit thee greatly to the beginning of ghostly health, and to a stable fundamental of all virtues.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Luke: I must be allowed to speak.
Bib Fortuna: He must be allowed to speak.
Jabba the Hutt: You weak minded fool. He's using an old Jedi mind trick.

Luke: You will bring Captain Solo and the wookieee to me.

Jabba the Hutt: Your mind powers will not work on me boy.
Luke: Nevertheless, I am taking Captain Solo and his friends. You can either profit by this or be destroyed. It's your choice, but I warn you not to underestimate my power.More [04/06/2007 12:04:00]

Gordon Gekko: [at the Teldar Paper stockholder's meeting] Well, I appreciate the opportunity you're giving me Mr. Cromwell as the single largest shareholder in Teldar Paper, to speak. Well, ladies and gentlemen we're not here to indulge in fantasy but in political and economic reality. America, America has become a second-rate power. Its trade deficit and its fiscal deficit are at nightmare proportions. Now, in the days of the free market when our country was a top industrial power, there was accountability to the stockholder. The Carnegies, the Mellons, the men that built this great industrial empire, made sure of it because it was their money at stake. Today, management has no stake in the company! All together, these men sitting up here own less than three percent of the company. And where does Mr. Cromwell put his million-dollar salary? Not in Teldar stock; he owns less than one percent. You own the company. That's right, you, the stockholder. And you are all being royally screwed over by these, these bureaucrats, with their luncheons, their hunting and fishing trips, their corporate jets and golden parachutes.
Cromwell: This is an outrage! You're out of line Gekko!
Gordon Gekko: Teldar Paper, Mr. Cromwell, Teldar Paper has 33 different vice presidents each earning over 200 thousand dollars a year. Now, I have spent the last two months analyzing what all these guys do, and I still can't figure it out. One thing I do know is that our paper company lost 110 million dollars last year, and I'll bet that half of that was spent in all the paperwork going back and forth between all these vice presidents. The new law of evolution in corporate America seems to be survival of the unfittest. Well, in my book you either do it right or you get eliminated. In the last seven deals that I've been involved with, there were 2.5 million stockholders who have made a pretax profit of 12 billion dollars. Thank you. I am not a destroyer of companies. I am a liberator of them! The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind. And greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you very much.More [05/16/2007 12:05:00]
Bryan Woodman: Do you understand what that means, it's like someone put a giant ATM on our front lawn.

I shall be closer to you for the next few days, which will be the last of your miserable lives, than that bitch of a mother who first brought you screaming into this world!

Navin R. Johnson: [bleakly] I've already given away eight pencils, two hoola dolls, and an ashtray, and I've only taken in fifteen dollars.
Frosty: Navin, you have taken in fifteen dollars and given away fifty cents worth of crap, which gives us a net profit of fourteen dollars and fifty cents.
Navin R. Johnson: Ah... It's a profit deal. Takes the pressure off. Get your weight guessed right here! Only a buck! Actual live weight guessing! Take a chance and win some crap!More [05/03/2008 12:05:00]
Jabez Stone:
Money's a funny thing ain't it, Ma?



Ma Stone:
I figure it depends a mite on how you get it and how you spend it.



Jabez Stone:
But I don't spend any.



Ma Stone:
But you should, son. That's all it's good for.



Jabez Stone:
Do you really think that?



Ma Stone:
That's just common sense. Now a man like Daniel Webster: guess they pay him high for what he does, but he's worth it. And he helps others... makes all the difference.



Jabez Stone:
I know. But suppose a man got his money in bad ways?



Ma Stone:
Wouldn't profit him none. You see, son: I'm old and I've lived. When a man gets his money in bad way... when he sees the better course and takes the worse... then the devil's in his heart. And that fixes him.



Jabez Stone:
And yet... a man could change all that couldn't he?



Ma Stone:
A man can always change things. That's what makes him different from the barnyard critters.

Brad Taggart:
I know that when I started your copper mine here, sir, you figured on getting Bailey's equipment cheap as part of the deal, but if he means what he says...



Jackson Decker:
I don't care what he says. I want his milling machinery at any price. The cost of shipping heavy machinery like that is prohibitive.



Brad Taggart:
We could let him do our milling for our copper for us if he gave you a percentage.



Jackson Decker:
And be at Bailey's mercy? Oh, no. Ownership of that mill is the difference between profit and loss for the Decker copper mine.



Brad Taggart:
I see. No mill, no job for me running the mine - is that it?



Jackson Decker:
I don't start anything I can't control. That's why I make money and Bailey goes broke

Spirit of Christmas Present:
My time with you is at an end, Ebenezer Scrooge. Will you profit from what I've shown you of the good in most men's hearts?



Ebenezer:
I don't know, how can I promise!



Spirit of Christmas Present:
If it's too hard a lesson for you to learn, then learn this lesson!


[opens his robe, revealing two starving children]



Ebenezer:
[shocked] Spirit, are these yours?



Spirit of Christmas Present:
They are Man's. This boy is Ignorance, this girl is Want. Beware them both, but most of all, beware this boy!



Ebenezer:
But have they no refuge, no resource?



Spirit of Christmas Present:
[quoting Scrooge] Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?

Col. Feroud:
I have here your dossier. It contains the history of your life. You're a man entirely without moral scruples of any kind. You supply the Syrians with guns and ammunition, but I respect them, they fight for a cause. Your cause is only money. While Frenchmen and Syrians kill each other, you profit by it. According to military law you have to be shot. The punishment seems hardly adequate.



Harry Smith:
What have you got me up here for? To watch me sweat, to watch me crawl? I'll bet they didn't bring Nasir up here before they shot him.



Col. Feroud:
What a pity you could only die once.



Harry Smith:
Sure, I know I'm going to be shot, but not for running guns, but because I'm something special. I made a monkey out of you. I'm the guy that ran off with your girl.



Col. Feroud:
Don't you realize if I *wanted* you shot, you'd be in a ditch right now?

McDonald Walling:
The force behind a great company has to be more than the pride of one man; it has to be the pride of thousands. You can't make men work for money alone - you starve their souls when you try it, and you can starve a company to death the same way.



McDonald Walling:
[picking up a small, flimsy table] And that's when we started doing things like this: the KF line. Walt, are your boys proud when they go out and sell this stuff? When they know the finish is going to crack, the veneer split off and the legs come loose?



Loren Phineas Shaw:
Wait a minute, wait a minute. That's priced merchandise - it serves a definite purpose in the profit structure of this company. We're not cheating anyone.



McDonald Walling:
Ourselves!



Loren Phineas Shaw:
At that price, the customer knows exactly what he is going to get.



McDonald Walling:
This!


[flips the table over, and easily tears off one of its legs]



McDonald Walling:
This is what Tredway has come to mean!


[violently throws the leg against the wall]



McDonald Walling:
And what do you suppose the people think of us when they buy it? How do you suppose the men in the factories feel when they make it? What must they think of a management that is willing to stoop to selling this kind of junk in order to add a dime a year to the dividend?

Dr. Yen Lo:
Attractive plant you have here.



Zilkov:
Thank you, doctor. It's actually a rest home for wealthy alcoholics. We were able to purchase it three years ago. Except for this floor and the floor above it, which is sealed off for security purposes, the rest functions quite normally. In fact it's one of the few Soviet operations in America that actually showed a profit at the end of the last fiscal year.



Dr. Yen Lo:
Profit? Fiscal year? Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Beware, my dear Zilkov. The virus of capitalism is highly infectious. Soon you'll be lending money out at interest!

Butch Cassidy:

Harvey Logan:
[draws a big knife] Anything you say, Butch.


[Butch walks over to Sundance]



Butch Cassidy:
[in a low voice] Maybe there's a way to make a profit in this. Bet on Logan.



Sundance Kid:
I would, but who'd bet on you?



Harvey Logan:
Sundance, when we're done, and he's dead, you're welcome to stay.



Butch Cassidy:
[low voice, to Sundance] Listen, I don't mean to be a sore loser, but when it's done, if I'm dead, kill him.



Sundance Kid:
[low voice to Butch] Love to.


[waves to Harvey and smiles]



Butch Cassidy:
No, no, not yet. Not until me and Harvey get the rules straightened out.



Harvey Logan:
Rules? In a knife fight? No rules.


[Butch immediately kicks Harvey in the groin]



Butch Cassidy:
Well, if there aint' going to be any rules, let's get the fight started. Someone count. 1,2,3 go.



Sundance Kid:
[quickly] 1,2,3, go.

Miguel de Cervantes:
I shall impersonate a man. His name is Alonso Quijana, a country squire no longer young. Being retired, he has much time for books. He studies them from morn till night and often through the night and morn again, and all he reads oppresses him; fills him with indignation at man's murderous ways toward man. He ponders the problem of how to make better a world where evil brings profit and virtue none at all; where fraud and deceit are mingled with truth and sincerity. He broods and broods and broods and broods and finally his brains dry up. He lays down the melancholy burden of sanity and conceives the strangest project ever imagined - -to become a knight-errant, and sally forth into the world in search of adventures; to mount a crusade; to raise up the weak and those in need. No longer will he be plain Alonso Quijana, but a dauntless knight known as Don Quixote de La Mancha.

Before we go... let us remember our code. Let us strive every moment of our lives to make ourselves better and better to the best of our abilities so that all may profit by it. Let us think of the right and lend our assistance to all who may need it, with no regard for anything but justice. Let us take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage. Let us be considerate of our country, our fellow citizens, and our associates in everything we say and do. Let us do right to all - and wrong no man.

Dr. James Kelloway:
Okay, here it is. I have to start by saying that if there was any other way, if there was even a slight chance of another alternative, I would give anything not to be here with you now. Anything. Bru, how long have we known each other? Sixteen years. That's how long. Sixteen years. You should have seen yourself then. You looked like you just walked out of a Wheaties box. And me, all sweaty palm and deadly serious. I told everybody about this dream I had of conquering the new frontier, and they all looked at me like I was nuts. You looked at me and said, "yes." I remember when you told me Kay was pregnant. We went out and got crocked. I remember when Charles was born. We went out and got crocked again. The two of us. Captain Terrific and the Mad Doctor, talking about reaching the stars, and the bartender telling us maybe we'd had enough. Sixteen years. And then Armstrong stepped out on the Moon, and we cried. We were so proud. Willis, you and Walker, you came in about then. Both bright and talented wise-asses, looked at me in my wash-and-wear shirt carrying on this hot love affair with my slide-rule, and even you were caught up in what we'd done. I remember when Glenn made his first orbit in Mercury, they put up television sets in Grand Central Station, and tens of thousands of people missed their trains to watch. You know, when Apollo 17 landed on the Moon, people were calling up the networks and bitching because reruns of I Love Lucy were cancelled. Reruns, for Christ's sake! I could understand if it was the new Lucy show. After all, what's a walk on the Moon? But reruns! Oh, geez! And then suddenly everybody started talking about how much everything cost. Was it really worth twenty billion to go to another planet? What about cancer? What about the slums? How much does it cost? How much does any dream cost, for Christ's sake? Since when is there an accountant for ideas? You know who was at the launch today? Not the President. The Vice-President, that's who. The Vice-President and his plump wife. The President was busy. He's not busy. He's just a little bit scared. He sat there two months ago and put his feet up on Woodrow Wilson's desk, and he said, "Jim. Make it good. Congress is on my back. They're looking for a reason to cancel the program. We can't afford another screw-up. Make it good. You have my every good wish." His every good wish! I got his sanctimonious Vice President! That's what I got! So, there we are. After all those hopes and ll that dreaming, he sits there, with those flags behind his chair, and tells me we can't afford a screw-up. And guess what! We had a screw-up! A first-class, bona-fide, made-in-America screw-up! The good people from Con-Amalgamate delivered a life-support system cheap enough so they could make a profit on the deal. Works out fine for everybody. Con-Amalgamate makes money. We have our life-support system. Everything's peachy. Except they made a little bit too much profit. We found out two months ago it won't work. You guys would all be dead in three weeks. It's as simple as that. So, all I have to do is report that and scrub the mission. Congress has its excuse, the President still has his desk, and we have no more program. What's sixteen years? Your actual drop in the bucket! All right. That's the end of the speech. Now, we're getting to what they call the moment of truth. Come with me. I want to show you something.

Rodney:
Oh, yeah, yeah, that's what we thought, but... we were wondering if you could take a couple in the back of the van.



Del Boy:
Back of my van? You must be joking. I've only just cleared 'em out of the van!



Rodney:
You mean you were selling 'em in the first place?



Del Boy:
Yeah. That is the rubbish that Alfie Flowers sold me last week. Normally I'd never have bought it but, you know, he caught me when I was a bit non compost mentis down the one-eleven club. I never thought I'd get shot of 'em, Rodney, but you know me; he who dares wins. I actually made quite a tidy little profit on it and all.



Rodney:
And what are we supposed to do with them?



Del Boy:
Well, why don't you do what I did? Find yourselves a couple of right little plonkers with cash on the hip.

No I don't want that. I don't want to be in some sort of cyber-space-hypervirtual bloody reality. I don't want that- exchanging e-mails with some old age bloody hippies with more information at their fingertips than is safe to know about. I don't want that! What kind of reality is that, huh, you know, with a thirteen-amp plug on the end of it? Huh? Huh?... That can be un-plugged like that? Come-on I'm going.


[She turns to leave, but... ]



Eddie:
No I'm not going yet! No, you!


[points to her competition, Claudia Bing]



Eddie:
You, you, just sit there like your velcroed to some bloody add-man! You know those crap-head add-men over there, you know, those kings of bastardization that have just taken everything that was ever real and genuine and honest and original and attached it to a toilet cleaner! Whereas I, I... Like a bird on a wire... Like a drunk in a midnight choir... I have tried in my way to be free.


[Then she sings]



Eddie:
Like a bird, on a wire.



Patsy:
Go for it Eddy.



Eddie:
[singing] ... Like a drunk in a midnight choir. I have tried in my way to be free.


[Claudia Bing and her colleagues are laughing]



Eddie:
Yeah you can laugh, but you know something- I don't want more choice I just want nicer things! And you, you can take that look off your face, sitting there with your... with your wheels and AIDS and starvation. You know, skimming a neat profit of the whole of human misery. Labeling us all with this- with this global guilt. Well it may not be all great and good but it ain't that bad, so cheer up world it may never bloody happen!


[slams her bag down again]



Eddie:
Come on I'm going.


[Edina walks off making rude farting sounds at everyone in the room]

[Robert asks the Duke to arrange a duel with Cunningham]



Duke of Argyll:
MacGregor!



Robert Roy MacGregor:
Sir?



Duke of Argyll:
He will kill you, MacGregor. I would lose money I wagered otherwise.



Robert Roy MacGregor:
Your lordship has my permission to profit what way he will.
