Trinity Term Quotes

I wanted to share a few memorable quotes thus far in Trinity Term. Some I remember who said it and others I had scribbled in my little green book with no person identified. Apologies.
"Time in business is risk" -Guy Hands, Founder and CEO, Terra Firma
"Buy well, sell well, and don't screw it up in the middle" - Chris Woodhouse, CFO Debenhams, on working for private equity backed companies "What can go right? What can go wrong? What can be done to increase the probablity of it going right or reduce the probability of it going wrong?" -Questions to ask during an entrepreneurial venture "People who solve problems must somehow first arrive at the belief that they can solve problems." -How to Change The World, a social entrepreneurial book "Wisdom is supreme, therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding." -Proverbs 4:7 "Do you do what you're best at every day?" "Be ruthless in selecting companies to work for. Be ruthless in selecting the right people to come work for you." (and expect the same)
