Insightful quotes by the late Colonel Sanders the founder of KFC restaurant food chain.
One of our biggest problems getting started was money.
Lots of nights I would sleep in the back of my car so I would have enough money to buy cookers the next day if someone took a franchise.
I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labour, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.
Service is the best thing in the world you can give to your customers.
There’s no such thing as bad weather – just different kinds of good weather.
Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.
I pray to the Almighty to encourage you to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ. Whatever difficulties you may have to face, turn to him, recognize him and render him all your glory, and he will help you overcome.
I still believe in the importance of charity, which means giving to God his just measure of goods he has seen fit to bestow on you in the form of material gain. When I started out in the franchise business, I didn’t know exactly what I was doing by promising God his part if he helped make my enterprise a success, but I now think that that is the reason for my success ever since.
There’s no reason to be the richest man in the cemetery. You can’t do any business from there.
