      You can download our latest Eagle Edition, "I have no idea what I’m supposed to do. I only know what I can do." or you can check our other editions below. Happy reading!

      When we first launched Eagle Direct in 2007, (part of the Eagle Group) we compiled a collection of quotes that we liked and sent them to customers, suppliers and friends. The response was amazing – everybody likes quotes!  We called that book, “Do or do not, there is no try.”

      Two years later we launched Medical House Ltd, revised the quote book with a few new ones and gave the quote book away as we met our new customers.  Again the response was amazing, and we would get calls from customers, their patients and all sorts of people asking for another copy… until we ran out! A rebrand in 2015 seen an another revised book with a brand new Eagle logo.

      The wise, funny, sad, impertinent, knowing words of others seem to resonate with us as we often nod our heads in agreement with what has been said.  The wise men and women have managed to put into a sentence what we understand to be true.

      Many of the quotes in our books have been chosen because they align with our Ten Core Values. These are listed at the end of the book and encapsulate what we are all about. This is the way we run our company and our daily interactions with each other, our suppliers and our customers. Business for us is not a way to make money or fill in the days, but rather to offer the opportunity to create change in ourselves and the world in which we operate.

      We hope you enjoy reading these quotes as much as we have enjoyed bringing them to you! Please pass on to others the wisdom of the quotes that touch you and the joy of those that make you laugh!

      I may not agree with what you say

      Third Edition

      “I may not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Whether Voltaire actually said these words that form the title of our latest World Famous in New Zealand Quote Book is a matter of some conjecture, but they are often seen as a description of the democratic process...

      Ninth Edition

      As I write this, it’s November 2016. We could be forgiven at the moment for thinking the sky is about to fall, Brexit, USA elections, demonstrations, refugees, wars, and on it goes; the media giants are like the proverbial pigs in sh*t. They can’t believe their luck as they parade misery after a disaster...
