Conrad Hilton Quotes

“A very poor Greek once applied for a job as janitor in a bank of Athens. “Can you write?” demanded the discriminating head of employment. “Only my name,” said the fellow. He didn’t get the job – so he borrowed the money to travel steerage to the United States, the Land of Opportunity. Many years later an important Greek businessman held a press conference in his beautiful Wall Street offices. At the conclusion an enterprising reporter said, “You should write your memoirs.” The gentleman smiled. “Impossible,” he said, “I cannot write.” The reporter was astounded. “Just think,” he remarked, “how much further you would have gone if you could.” The Greek shook his head. “If I could write,” he said, “I’d be a janitor.”
