- Let no man anticipate uncertain profits.
1935, (w), ''(w)'', pp. 1 & 7:
- War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives... Of course, it isn't put that crudely in war time. It is dressed into speeches about patriotism, love of country, and "we must all put one's shoulder to the wheel|put our shoulders to the wheel," but the profits jump and leap and skyrocket—and are safely pocketed.
(quote-journal)| title=T time| passage=The ability to shift profits to low-tax countries by locating intellectual property in them, which is then licensed to related businesses in high-tax countries, is often assumed to be the preserve of high-tech companies. … current tax rules make it easy for all sorts of firms to generate … “stateless income”: profit subject to tax in a jurisdiction that is neither the location of the factors of production that generate the income nor where the parent firm is domiciled.
Benefit, positive result obtained.

- The word preached did not profit them.
