As shown on the “ Strive for Perfection ” mugs issued
by Rolls-Royce, Henry Royce’s
“ mission statement”
“ Strive for perfection in everything that you do.
Take the best that exists and make it better.
When it does not exist, design it.
Accept nothing nearly right or good enough. “
I try to inculcate this into the attitude of my own
tradesmen, with limited success.
“ Quidvis recte factum quamvis humile
Roughly translates to......
“ Whatsoever is rightly done, however
humble, is noble ”
More recent and something dreamt up by Rolls-Royce to justify their prices !
“ The quality remains long after the price is forgotten ! ”
Below is a picture of Bentley village, I wonder if any residents have a Bentley.
I wonder if they get sick of Bentley owners arriving just to get this picture.
Lower, a picture of an early Rolls-Royce apprentice.
This is what it was like last time we had
fuel shortages ! I remember !
