“Believe me, it’s not that I disapprove of executive dining rooms, executive bathrooms, or private phone lines in some offices. It’s just that I do not wish to promote such superficial amenities within our Company. It’s against our style to create an atmosphere that arouses hostile feelings between “haves” and “have-nots.” This is what invariably happens when conspicuous status symbols are bestowed upon a chosen few. I don’t believe in promoting a privileged class. Such an environment breeds pomposity. And pomposity is demoralizing and self-defeating – as well as bad business.” – Mary Kay Ash
