I was born the day a Methodist bishop name Isaac W. Joyce happened to be in David City. Clyde wasnít any great shakes of a name either. When you get to the end of your rope tie a knot in it and hang on. We didn't start our business to see how much money we could make, but to see how good a job we could do. If a man goes into business with only the idea of making a lot of money, chances are he won't. But if he puts service and quality first, the money will take care of itself. Producing a first-class product that is a real need is a much stronger motivation for success than getting rich. Iím hell-bent on quality. Good taste is good business. Iíd rather make eight million good impressions than 28 million bad ones. Everybody in the place was against it. I just donít like to sit around and wait for something to happen. Itís more fun making it happen. I figured I wasnít as smart as some of the other fellows, so I had to work twice as hard. In bad times people send greeting cards instead of presents. All I was trying to do was make a living. In those days, if you didn't work, you didn't eat. And I like to eat. The Lord will provide. Itís a good idea to give the Lord a little help.
