Okay, now this is just weird.
I was looking for inspiring quotes about work, on the off-chance that I might believe one of them. And I came across the following quote. At first it seemed just another businessman stating the facts-as-he-sees-them, usually from the perspective of someone who clawed his way to the top but wants to make it look like he strolled up instead.
Then I looked at who the quote was attributed to. (Yes, yes, to whom the quote was attributed.)
And I thought... huh? Wait a minute.
Questionable quote du jour: A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.
- Mahatma Gandhi
Y'know... I suspect 'The Internet' is pulling my leg here.
