"War is not a matter for the professional pacifist or militarist. It is for the unprofessional people. They finance and fight it, they bear its losses. Therefore, they should have the deciding voice concerning it. To do this, they require all the information upon which decisions are made. They should know in a difference, whether it is soluble by rational intelligence, or inevitable by force. Not once in a thousand instances would our people (this may not be true of all peoples, however) approve an offensive war. Never would they be lax in defensive action. For this is their country. However, most of their enemies are within it."

"Hard knocks have a place and value, but hard thinking goes farther in less time."

"For a long time now, I have believed that industry & agriculture are natural partners & that they should begin to recognize & practice their partnership. Each of them is suffering from ailments which the other can cure. Agriculture needs a wider &steadier market; industrial workers need more steadier jobs. Can each be made to supply what the other needs? I think so. The link between is Chemistry. In the vicinity of Dearborn we are farming twenty thousand acres for everything from sunflowers to soy beans. We pass the crops through our laboratory to learn how they may be used in the manufacture of motor cars &, thus provide an industrial market for the farmers' products."

"Henry Ford in a statement said: 'No one loses anything by raising wages as soon as he is able. It has always paid us. Low wages are the most costly any employer can pay. It is like using low-grade material--the waste makes it very expensive in the end. There is no economy in cheap labor or cheap material. The hardest thing I ever had to do was to reduce wages. I think we were the last big company to come to it. Now I am mighty glad that wages are climbing again."

"The depression was just a state of mind. It is over for everyone who has changed his state of mind."

"Individualism is what makes cooperation worth living."

"Many people seem to believe that Greenfield Village & the Edison Institute & Museum at Dearborn, with their specimens of earlier type of American life & industry, are just a kind of antiquarian hobby of mine. I do not deny that they have given me a great deal of interest & pleasure. But the project is vastly more than a hobby. It has very definite purposes, & I hope will have results lasting down the years. One purpose is to remind the public who visit it & sometimes there are thousands a day--of how far& how fast we have come in technical progress in the last century or so. If we have come so far & so fast, is it likely that we shall stop now?"

"We wish all users of Ford cars to know what they are entitled to."

"See what a 25-cent raise will do to us," said Mr. Ford. So they figured the daily & monthly cost of a 25-cent increase. "Put on another quarter & see what that will cost," he said. And so they went on,25 cents a step...Finally the wage of $2.34 stood at $4.75--more than 100 percent increase. One of the associates--a good financial head--remarked rather sarcastically that if they were going to be fools, why not be first-class fools & make it $5..."All right," said Mr. Ford, "let's make it $5."

"I foresee the time when industry shall no longer denude the forests which require generations to mature, nor use up the mines which were ages in making, but shall draw its raw material largely from the annual produce of the fields. I am convinced that we shall be able to get out of yearly crops most of the basic materials which we now get from forest and mine."

"What I greatly hope for these children everywhere, is a new attitude toward life--free from the gullibility which thinks we can get something for nothing; free from the greed which thinks any permanent good can come of overreaching others; and, above all, expectant of change, so that when life gives them a jolt they will be fully prepared to push on eagerly along new lines."

"Fairs and public displays", Henry Ford has said, "are the best means we have yet found of showing large numbers of people the real methods of industry."

"No unemployment insurance can be compared to an alliance between a man and a plot of land. With one foot in the land, human society is firmly balanced against most economic uncertainties. With a job to supply him with cash, and a plot of land to guarantee him support, the individual is doubly secure. Stocks may fail, but seedtime and harvest do not fail."

"An educated person, I think, is one who not only knows a lot, but knows how to do a lot of things."

"We have had just one main purpose during these years, and that is to give the people transportation of the most dependable quality at the lowest possible cost. Our car was called the "Universal Car" thirty years ago, because it fulfilled so many needs; it is "The Universal Car" today for the same reason."

"History is more or less bunk."

" I don't know anybody so old he can't do something useful. Just give them a chance and see."

"America is not a land of money but of wealth-not a land of rich people, but of successful workers."

"The basically simple things are best, whether it's automobiles or diets or philosophy."
