Robert Conklin   Category: Wealth

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
The Bible   Category: Wealth

I am absolutely convinced that no amount of wealth in the world can help humanity move 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 irresistably invites abuse. Can anyone imagine Moses Jesus or Ghandi armed with the money-bags of Carnegie?
Albert Einstein   Category: Wealth

Wealth is the sinews of affairs. (business transactions)
Bion   Category: Wealth

Life is short. The sooner that a man begins to enjoy his wealth the better.
Samuel Johnson   Category: Wealth

Wealth to us is not mere material for vainglory but an opportunity for achievement; and poverty we think it no disgrace to acknowledge but a real degredation to make no effort to overcome.
Thucydides   Category: Wealth

There is no fortress so strong that money cannot take it.
Marcus Tullius Cicero   Category: Wealth

Those that think that wealth is the proper thing for them cannot give up their revenues; those that seek distinction cannot give up the thought of fame; those that cleave to power cannot give the handle of it to others. While they hold their grasp of those things they are afraid of losing them. When they let them go they are grieved and they will not look at a single example from which they might perceive the folly of their restless pursuits such men are under the doom of heaven.
Chuang Tzu   Category: Wealth
