Quotes about Measurement

Here's the next section of quotes from my book 1000 Great Quotations for Business, Management & Training.

An updated version of the book is newly available as part of my Almost Free Kindle titles both in the UK and in the USA.

Peter Robinson, US executive (b. 1938)

Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.

Doug Hammarskjold, Swedish statesman (1905-1961)

What gets measured gets done – but only for the purpose of measurement.

David Williams, British author, presenter (b. 1950)
