Henry John Kaiser (May 9, 1882 – August 24, 1967) was an American industrialist who became known as the father of modern American shipbuilding. He established the Kaiser Shipyards, which built Liberty ships during World War II, after which he formed Kaiser Aluminum and Kaiser Steel. Kaiser organized Kaiser Permanente health care for his workers and their families. He led Kaiser-Frazer followed by Kaiser Motors, automobile companies known for the safety of their designs. Kaiser was involved in large construction projects such as civic centers and dams, and invested in real estate. With his acquired wealth, he initiated the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit, non- partisan, charitable organization. (Click here for full Wikipedia article)


Having an aim is the key to achieving your best.

I always have to dream up there against the stars. If I don't dream I will make it, I won't even get close.

I make progress by having people around me who are smarter than I am and listening to them. And I assume that everyone is smarter about something than I am.

Live daringly, boldly, fearlessly. Taste the relish to be found in competition - in having put forth the best within you.

Problems are only opportunities in work clothes.

When your work speaks for itself, don't interrupt.

You can't sit on the lid of progress. If you do, you will be blown to pieces.


(May 9 is also the birthday of Billy Joel and J.M. Barrie.)
