Thought of the Day: Takers and Makers

From Fred Wilson, a venture capitalist:

There are takers and makers in this world. Takers make their money by taking from others. They are usually bad business people and their careers often end in failure. Makers build things. They create value for society, their employees, their shareholders, and themselves.
Not entirely sure if I believe "takers" usually get their comeuppance, but I do believe that the upside in life is far greater for "makers" than "takers".
