Whatever you think about real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, one thing's for sure: The man knows how to say things that get attention. Indeed, as far back as his 1987 book "The Art of the Deal," he showed that he's always understood the nature of the press and used it to his advantage.
"Most reporters, I find, have very little interest in exploring the substance of a detailed proposal for a development," he said. "They look instead for the sensational angle."
On Monday, Trump had his first debate with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
For better or worse, the man knows how to say things that keep the spotlight on him. The topics about which he has been known to freely opine include business, the economy, climate change and what an entrepreneur needs to do in order to allow business creation to run riot.
Whatever you think of him, there's no denying that he has a unique perspective on what it takes to run a successful business. CNBC.com presents 10 colorful quotes on key topics entrepreneurs are concerned about.
