We have no commission from God to police the world.
— Benjamin Harrison

The omission of good is no less reprehensible than the commission of evil.
Plutarch commissions quote

An advertising agency is 85 percent confusion and 15 percent commission.
— Fred A. Allen

Christ had given the apostles a world-wide commission, embracing all the nations; but intellectually they did not understand what He meant. They found that out as they followed the impulse of the Spirit.
— Roland Allen

Throughout the history of commercial life nobody has ever quite liked the commission man. His function is too vague, his presence always seems one too many, his profit looks too easy, and even when you admit that he has a necessary function, you feel that this function is, as it were, a personification of something that in an ethical society would not need to exist. If people could deal with one another honestly, they would not need agents.
— commissions quotation by Raymond Chandler
