Top Merger Quotes

Merger Quotes By Neelie Kroes

Highly complementary airline alliances and mergers can bring important benefits to passengers by connecting networks, offering new services and generating efficiencies across the aviation value chain. However, this has to take place within a competitive environment. It is vital that the economic benefits of an airline alliance or merger are passed on to passengers. — Neelie Kroes

Merger Quotes By Bill Moyers

Sure enough, as merger has followed merger, journalism has been driven further down the hierarchy of values in the huge conglomerates that dominate what we see, read and hear. And to feed the profit margins journalism has been directed to other priorities than "the news we need to know to keep our freedoms" — Bill Moyers

Merger Quotes By June Casagrande

If you want to master the art of the sentence, you must first accept a somewhat unpleasant truth--something a lot of writers would rather deny: The Reader is king. You are his servant. You serve the Reader information. You serve the Reader entertainment. You serve the Reader details of your company's recent merger or details of your experiences in drug rehab. In each case, as a writer you're working for the man (or the woman). Only by knowing your place can you do your job well. — June Casagrande

Merger Quotes By Glen Morgan

I don't recall a show I've ever been on that had the same director do two episodes in a row, but in England, they do it all the time. In England, they'll just have one director for eight episodes. That was the British system that Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner wanted to bring to the States. I think there was a nice merger of the two systems. They might have gone with one director, but John had obligations on The Village, and he had to leave and come back, so it seemed like a natural place to break it up. — Glen Morgan

Merger Quotes By Ivan Glasenberg

You're doing a major merger, you got to hope you didn't get it wrong. That's the view of any CEO. — Ivan Glasenberg

Merger Quotes By Dilip Shanghvi

Whenever you look at any potential merger or acquisition, you look at the potential to create value for your shareholders. — Dilip Shanghvi

Merger Quotes By Osho

Past and future are two aspects of the same coin. The name of the coin is mind. When the whole coin is dropped, that dropping is innocence. Then you don't know who you are, then you don't know what is; there is no knowledge. But you are, existence is, and the meeting of these two is-nesses - the small is-ness of you, meeting with the infinite is-ness of existence - that meeting, that merger, is the experience of beauty. Innocence is the door; through innocence you enter into beauty. The more innocent you become, the more existence becomes beautiful. The more knowledgeable you are, the more and more existence is ugly, because you start functioning from conclusions, you start functioning from knowledge. The — Osho

Merger Quotes By Ed Catmull

if not anyone else - that what we'd created at Pixar could work outside of Pixar. Both the run-up to the acquisition and its execution provided the ultimate case study, and as such, it was enormously exciting to be a part of. First, I'll talk about how the merger came to pass in the first place, because I believe we did several things in the very early stages that put our partnership on a strong footing. "GET TO KNOW Bob Iger," Steve had said. So a few weeks later, I did. — Ed Catmull

Merger Quotes By Rajneesh

Drop the mind and the divine. God is not an object, it is a merger. The mind resists a merger, the mind is against surrender; the mind is very cunning and calculating. — Rajneesh

Merger Quotes By Peter MacKay

I want to lead the Progressive Conservative Party, a party that will promote true conservative values and principles. I can tell you right now, I am not the merger candidate. I am not interested in institutional marriages with other parties. — Peter MacKay

Merger Quotes By Lakshmi Mittal

Merger Quotes By Dally Messenger

Ceremony assists people to adjust to change (a marriage ceremony does this for families), to recognize achievement (a classic example is a graduation ceremony), to relate, to express love, and/or to establish a relationship. Ceremonies are the human way we have to signpost a deal such as a business merger, to trigger off a healthy grief process (such as in divorce or funeral ceremonies), to welcome another human being into the family. So Ceremonies have these excellent effects - they can be used further to announce intentions, to express loyalty and to reinforce a sense of identity. — Dally Messenger

Merger Quotes By Adam Davidson

When you see a merger between two giants in a declining industry, it can look like the financial version of a couple having a baby to save a marriage. — Adam Davidson

Merger Quotes By Andrew Ross Sorkin

What if the slowdown in merger activity isn't cyclical, but secular? What if corporations have learned the lessons of so many companies before them that the odds of a successful merger are no better than 50-50 and probably less? Is it possible that the biggest deals have already been done? — Andrew Ross Sorkin

Merger Quotes By New Scientist

Our leading candidate for a theory of everything is known as M-theory. It grew from a merger of the two seemingly different approaches: 11-dimensional supergravity and 10-dimensional superstring theory. Could this be the final theory of everything? — New Scientist

Merger Quotes By Alice Walker

Merger Evers/John F. Kennedy/Malcolm X/Martin Luther King/Robert Kennedy/Che Guevara/Patrice Lamumba/George Jackson/Cynthia Wesley/Addie Mae Collins/Denise McNair/Carole Robertson/Viola Liuzzo
It was a decade marked by death. Violent and inevitable. Funerals became engraved on the brain, intensifying the ephemeral nature of life. For many in the South it was a decade reminiscent of earlier times, when oak trees sighed over their burdens in the wind; Spanish moss draggled blood to the ground; amen corners creaked with grief; and the thrill of being able, once again, to endure unendurable loss produced so profound an ecstasy in mourners that they strutted, without noticing their feet, along the thin backs of benches: their piercing shouts of anguish and joy never interrupted by an inglorious fall. They shared rituals for the dead to be remembered. — Alice Walker

Merger Quotes By Kunal Narayan Uniyal

All our thought process should be concentrated on merger of soul with the vital life. When this realisation is achieved, it leads the soul from Atma to Paramatma, one in poccession of all. — Kunal Narayan Uniyal

Merger Quotes By Bernard Ebbers

The strength in our third-quarter financial results is cause for excitement. I'm particularly pleased that we continue to demonstrate impressive growth at the same time we are engaged in important merger discussions. — Bernard Ebbers

Merger Quotes By Tom Peters

My half-baked reading of history is that we continue to go through these waves of entrepreneurial explosion followed by merger mania and consolidation. Out of that come big sluggish companies that eventually collapse under the weight of what they've created, and are killed off by the next wave of entrepreneurs. — Tom Peters

Merger Quotes By Jennifer Probst

I'm not crying for the man you are," she bit out. "I'm crying for the boy who never had anyone to care. — Jennifer Probst

Merger Quotes By Mario Monti

Like other antitrust agencies we make our assessment of a merger or antitrust case based on its impact on our jurisdiction, and not on the nationality of the companies. This is exactly what the U.S. antitrust agencies, the Justice Department and the FTC, do. — Mario Monti

Merger Quotes By Heather M. Miles

I'm more than a kiss on you worst day, I'm a kiss on your best." - Dr. Jeremy Nichols, Merger Complete — Heather M. Miles

Merger Quotes By Carly Fiorina

Most of the media ... is positioning the merger with Compaq and the recent actions by Walter Hewlett and David Packard as a fight between the past and the future. — Carly Fiorina

Merger Quotes By Ramana Maharshi

Grace is always present. You imagine it is something somewhere high in the sky, far away, and has to descend. It is really inside you, in your Heart, and the moment you effect subsidence or merger of the mind into its Source, grace rushes forth, sprouting as from a spring within you — Ramana Maharshi

Merger Quotes By Michael Lewis

The first day after the merger, Brad got a call from a worried female employee, who whispered, "There is a guy in here with suspenders walking around with a baseball bat in his hands, taking swings." That turned out to be Carlin's CEO, Jeremy Frommer, who, whatever else he was, was not RBC nice. One of Frommer's signature poses was feet up on his desk, baseball bat swinging wildly over his head while some poor shoeshine guy tried to polish his shoes. — Michael Lewis

Merger Quotes By Ray Kurzweil

Within a few decades, machine intelligence will surpass human intelligence, leading to The Singularity
technological change so rapid and profound it represents a rupture in the fabric of human history. The implications include the merger of biological and nonbiological intelligence, immortal software-based humans, and ultra-high levels of intelligence that expand outward in the universe at the speed of light. — Ray Kurzweil

Merger Quotes By John Updike

In asking forgiveness of women for our mythologizing of their bodies, for being unreal about them, we can only appeal to their own sexuality, which is different but not basically different, perhaps, from our own. For women, too, there seems to be that tangle of supplication and possessiveness, that descent toward infantile undifferentiation, that omnipotent helplessness, that merger with the cosmic mother-warmth, that flushed pulse-quickened leap into overestimation, projection, general mix-up. — John Updike

Merger Quotes By Bernard Ebbers

We very much regret that our merger with Sprint was not allowed to proceed. — Bernard Ebbers

Merger Quotes By Lee Kuan Yew

All my life ... I believed in Malaysian merger and unity of the two territories. You know that we, as a people, are connected by geography, economics, by ties of kinship. — Lee Kuan Yew

Most airlines move too fast in a merger. Speed is not as critical as efficiency. — Bill Vaughan

Merger Quotes By Carly Fiorina

A merger is hard to pull off under any circumstances. It's harder when everybody is against you. — Carly Fiorina

Merger Quotes By Thomas Friedman

Merger Quotes By Alfred Bester

They were blind to a cold fact of evolution ... that progress stems from the clashing merger of antagonistic extremes, out of the marriage of pinnacle freaks. — Alfred Bester

Merger Quotes By Jennifer Probst

Alexa sniffled. "Oh my God, he gave her an airport scene! Just like in the books I read and all those movies. He followed her to an airport and confessed his love before she could board the plane!"
Nick laughed. "Sweetheart, she wasn't boarding the plane."
"Close enough. — Jennifer Probst

Merger Quotes By Ashton Kutcher

Katalyst is a merger of three industries. A piece of us is connected to ad agencies. Because we get the complex overlay of the social Web, we know how to engage an audience and how to make entertainment for the social Web. And we know how to gain and activate and retain an audience. So we create social networks for brands. — Ashton Kutcher

Merger Quotes By Ken Liu

But being the mirrors for each other's souls has a cost: by the time they part from each other, the individuals in the mating pair have become indistinguishable. Before their merger, they each yearned for the other; as they part, they part from the self. The very quality that attracted them to each other is also, inevitably, destroyed in their union. — Ken Liu

Merger Quotes By Kara Swisher

A Microsoft-Yahoo merger is a deal only an investment banker could love. — Kara Swisher

Merger Quotes By Alexei Mordashov

Merger Quotes By Edward Whitacre Jr.

This merger is a logical next step that creates substantial value for customers and stockholders of both AT&T and BellSouth. It will benefit customers through new services and expanded service capabilities. — Edward Whitacre Jr.

Merger Quotes By Kevin Rollins

Well, you would have to say what is the criteria to determine the success of any merger? It would have to be that the companies are stronger financially, that they took market share, and they are on a very steady footing in terms of their performance. — Kevin Rollins

Merger Quotes By H.G.Wells

If Max [Aitken] gets to Heaven he won't last long. He will be chucked out for trying to pull off a merger between Heaven and Hell ... after having secured a controlling interest in key subsidiary companies in both places, of course. — H.G.Wells

Merger Quotes By David Letterman

The FCC has delayed the decision on the Time/Warner Comcast merger. So how do you think those folks like being put on hold? — David Letterman

Merger Quotes By Joel Bakan

As the corporation's size and power grew, so did the need to assuage people's fears of it. The corporation suffered its first full-blown legitimacy crisis in the wake of the early-twentieth-century merger movement, when, for the first time, many Americans realized that corporations, now turned behemoths, threatened to overwhelm their social institutions and governments. — Joel Bakan

Merger Quotes By Lakshmi Mittal

I understand La Dolce Famiglia will be exclusive to Purity hotels. When is the opening?"

Merger Quotes By Jeanine Pirro

When you have competing companies that are engaging in the raising of prices in lock step with each other, you have to question whether or not this in coincidence or price fixing. With the merger of Exxon and Mobil and Chevron and Texaco, we have very little competition among the energy companies. — Jeanine Pirro

Merger Quotes By Robert Haugen

In going directly to Investment Heaven, you build your portfolio as you would build a wonderful company through a merger and acquisition program. You specify the way you want your portfolio to look, and then you assemble the profile piece by piece by bringing together companies that make their own individual contributions to the desired character. — Robert Haugen

Merger Quotes By Jennifer Probst

What do you get out of it? You'd lose one of the most important aspects in this deal, the ability to veto any decision."

Every single time you make a merger, somebody is losing his identity. And saying something different is just rubbish. — Carlos Ghosn

Merger Quotes By Reggie Watts

Technology is a wonderful tool, but also if used incorrectly a horrible tool. We're fascinated by all aspects of it, whatever makes our human lives easier on the planet, but eventually there will have to be some sort of merger. The fascination isn't going to die down. — Reggie Watts

Merger Quotes By Ernest Becker

We said it is impossible for man to feel "right" in any straightforward way, and now we can see why. He can expand his self-feeling not only by Agape merger but also by the other ontological motive Eros, the urge for more life, for exciting experience, for the development of the self-powers, for developing the uniqueness of the individual creature, the impulsion to stick out of nature and shine. Life is, after all, a challenge to the creature, a fascinating opportunity to expand. Psychologically it is the urge for individuation: how do I realize my distinctive gifts, make my own contribution to the world through my own self-expansion? — Ernest Becker

Merger Quotes By Thomas C. Oden

Modern ecumenism rightly began in mission, but then lapsed into a merger mentality, then defensive bureaucracy, and finally into unrepresentative forms of extreme politicization. — Thomas C. Oden

Merger Quotes By Ted Turner

Merger Quotes By Sienna McQuillen

Many fear the loss of the Ego, but it is actually gain.
When a person loses the Ego, she can become One with All.
This is the Source of all Power, Grace, and Dignity.
The loss of Ego and the merging into the One actually increases personal power beyond verbal description.
Some experience this in the Marriage merger of two into one, and that is good, however, the married couple can also surrender its collective Ego to become One with All.
This is what some people hint at when they say God is the 3rd Person in their marriage.
Obviously, God is much more than that.
Perhaps such a married couple could say,
We are One with God,
We are One with All. — Sienna McQuillen

Merger Quotes By Ed Catmull

it seemed like every issue, big or small, that arose around this time was chalked up to the merger: "You said things wouldn't change! You're breaking your word! We don't want to lose the old Pixar!" I should say that this outcry came despite the fact that the measures we had put in place to protect Pixar's culture were working - and, in my view, were a model for how to maintain cultural integrity after a merger. — Ed Catmull

Merger Quotes By Lloyd Cutler

Later in that administration, I was asked to take a job which I had to turn down as Assistant Secretary of State for Economic Affairs because we were just then putting together the merger of two small law firms that became this law firm. I couldn't leave them at that point. — Lloyd Cutler

Merger Quotes By Marvin Ammori

Charter's merger sales pitch is pretty straightforward: it argues that it has always been too small to bully Internet companies, TV makers, and its own customers, so it has'un-cable' practices they hope to extend. — Marvin Ammori

Merger Quotes By Benito Mussolini

Fascism should rightly be called corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power. — Benito Mussolini
