„I wanted to change the rules of engagement, asking for more— from fewer. I was insisting that we had to have only the best people... If you wanted excellence, at a minimum, the ambience had to reflect excellence.“

—  Jack Welch, Ch. 9.

„There is, in the institutions of this country, one principle, which, had they no other excellence, would secure to them the preference over those of all other countries. I mean — and some devout patriots will start — I mean the principle of change.“

—  Frances Wright American activist 1795 - 1852
Context: There is, in the institutions of this country, one principle, which, had they no other excellence, would secure to them the preference over those of all other countries. I mean — and some devout patriots will start — I mean the principle of change. I have used a word to which is attached an obnoxious meaning. Speak of change, and the world is in alarm. And yet where do we not see change? What is there in the physical world but change? And what would there be in the moral world without change?
