A Bit of Wisdom from Milton S. Hershey

Hershey, PA…Milton S. Hershey September 13, 1857 – October 13, 1945. American chocolatier, businessman, and philanthropist.

I didn’t follow the policies of those already in the business. If I had, I would never have made a go of it. Instead, I started out with the determination to make a better nickel chocolate bar than any of my competitors made, and I did so.

I believed that, if I put a chocolate on the market that was better than anyone else was making, or was likely to make, and keep it absolutely uniform in quality, the time would come when the public would appreciate it and buy it.

The value of our good is not measured by what it does, but by the amount of good it does to the one concerned.

Young man: Be honest; train yourself for useful work; love God.

One is only happy in proportion as he makes others feel happy.

Give them quality. That’s the best kind of advertising.
