Have a sense of proportion

“To build a country, you need passion. If you just do your sums – plus, minuses, credit, debit – you are a washout.”
(Straits Times, 21 Aug 89)

“If you are going to quarrel about S$46 million – up or down another S$10 to S$20 million – I say you don’t have a sense of proportion.”

(Channel News Asia, Apr 07)

“…you have to pay the market rate or the man will up stakes and join Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers or Goldman Sachs, and you would have an incompetent man and you would lost money by the billions.” (Apr 07)
