Great quote on the sanctity of business

In Uncategorized on December 10, 2011 by mstevensrev Tagged: , , ,

“Businesses, are, in reality, quasi-religious sects. When you go to work in one, you embrace A NEW FAITH. And if they are really big businesses, you progress from faith to a kind of mystique. Belief in the product, preaching the product, in the end the product becomes the focus of a transcendental experience. Through ‘the product’ one communes with the vast forces of life, nature, and history that are expressed in business.” – Thomas Merton
