Richard Branson Quotes

“You get the idea. Every business, like a painting, operates according to its own rules. There are many ways to run a successful company. What works once may never work again. What everyone tells you never to do may just work, once. There are no rules. You don't learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over, and it's because you fall over that you learn to save yourself from falling over. It's the greatest thrill in the world and it runs away screaming at the first sight of bullet points.”

“Business opportunities are like buses; there’s always another one coming.”― Richard Branson


“As soon as something stops being fun, I think it’s time to move on. Life is too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live.”


“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”


“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”


“to be successful, you have to be out there, you have to hit the ground running”

I am aware that the ideas of business as being fun and creative goes right against the grain of convention, and it's certainly not how they teach it at some of those business schools, where business means hard grind and lots of 'discounted cash flows' and net' present values'.”


“The best lesson I learned was to just do it. It doesn’t matter what it is, or how hard it might seem, as the ancient Greek, Plato, said, ‘The beginning is the most important part of any work.”

“There have been times when I could have succumbed to some form of bribe or could have had my way by offering one. But ever since that night in Dover prison I have never been tempted to break my vow... My Parents always drummed into me that all you have life is your reputation: you may be very rich, but if you lose your good name you'll never be happy.”


“Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them, and start again.”
