John Kenneth Galbraith Quotes

American Economist
Born: October 15, 1908, Died: April 29, 2006, at the age of 98

That is organization -- the highly structured assemblage of men, and now some women, of which he is a part. It is to this, at the expense of family, friends, sex, recreation and sometimes health and effective control of alcoholic intake, that he is expected to devote his energies.
