In a book about the history of the company that carried his name, Arthur Andersen wrote: “About forty-five years ago, my own mother told me in Norwegian, ‘Think Straight, Talk Straight.’ No finer heritage could possibly be passed on from one generation to another. It has been as a firm rock to which I could anchor in a storm. Never has it failed me.”

And I must say, ever since I heard this phrase on my first day of employment with Arthur Andersen, it has never failed me either. It resonates deeply with me in my personal and professional life. And in my dealings with clients, I lean heavily on the value I find in its meaning.
