Check out Minyanville's quotes of the week (along with some slightly older ones...). From Warhol to Trump to Voltaire, we take a look at who's talking the talk.
–Michelangelo Volpi, CEO of Joost, an Internet TV provider
"When I got my first television set, I stopped caring so much about having close relationships."
"It was all very pleasant on both sides, but there's still plenty of distance between the two."
–An unnamed source on a meeting between Rupert Murdoch and the Bancrofts, the family that controls Dow Jones & Company
"Distance not only gives nostalgia, but perspective, and maybe objectivity."
–Memphis Belle pilot Robert Morgan
"I've caught up on all sorts of stuff. I have a free day-I haven't had one of these days in a long time."
–Donald Trump on a gap in his schedule
"One day Donald Trump will discover that he is owned by Lutheran Brotherhood and must renegotiate his debt load with a committee of silent Norwegians who don't understand why anyone would pay more than $120.00 for a suit."
"Software is like the tax code. You add lines, but you never take anything away."
–Jean-Louis Gassée, venture capitalist and former Apple executive
"The tax collector must love poor people, he's creating so many of them."
–Journalist Bill Vaughan
"This is somewhat expected. Last week's policy change is a strong signal that the government will no longer tolerate this rising bubble."
–Frank Song, director of the Center for China Financial Research at the University of Hong Kong
"What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly-that is the first law of nature."
