Everything we earn we need as a reserve.
I'm stingy and I'm proud of the reputation.
People say I am cheap, and I don't mind if they do.
I am very proud to follow the rules of our company.
Ikea people do not drive flashy cars or stay at luxury hotels.
Our idea is to serve everybody, including people with little money.
I'm not afraid of turning 80 and I have lots of things to do. I don't have time for dying.

We ought to have more women in various management positions, because women are the ones who decide almost everything in the home.
