Pondering Wealth And Riches

A little house well fill'd, a little land well till'd, and a little wife well will'd, are great riches.

Wealth unused might as well not exist.

Seek not proud wealth; but such as thou mayest get justly, use soberly, distribute cheerfully, and love contentedly.
~Francis Bacon~

I am absolutely convinced that no wealth in the world can help humanity forward, even in the hands of the most devoted worker. The example of great and pure individuals is the only thing that can lead us to noble thoughts and deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and irresistibly invites abuse. Can anyone imagine M anyone imagine Moses, Jesus or Gandhi armed with the money-bags of Carnegie?
~Albert Einstein~

Without the rich heart, wealth is an ugly beggar.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Wealth is the product of man's capacity to think.
~Ayn Rand~

To suppose, as we all suppose, that we could be rich and not behave as the rich behave, is like supposing that we could drink all day and keep absolutely sober.
~Logan Pearsall Smith~

You can have money piled to the ceiling, but the size of your funeral is still going to depend on the weather.
~Chuck Tanner~
