Riches quotes
Riches
You have riches and freedom here but I feel no sense of faith or direction. You have so many computers, why don't you use them in the search for love?

- Walesa, Lech
A man's true state of power and riches is to be in himself.

- Beecher, Henry Ward
Great abundance of riches cannot be gathered and kept by any man without sin.

- Erasmus, Desiderius
Man's greatest joy is to slay his enemy, plunder his riches, ride his steeds, see the tears of his loved ones and embrace his women.

- Genghis Khan
Good name in man and woman, dear my lord, Is the immediate jewel of their souls: Who steals my purse steals trash;'tis something, nothing; 'Twas mine,'tis his, and has been slave to thousands; But he that filches from me my good name Robs me of that which not enriches him And makes me poor indeed.

- William Shakespeare
Riches cover a multitude of woes.

- Menander
With the great part of rich people, the chief employment of riches consists in the parade of riches.

- Smith, Adam
If Heaven had looked upon riches to be a valuable thing, it would not have given them to such a scoundrel.

- Swift, Jonathan
However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are the richest.

- Henry David Thoreau
He is richest who is content with the least.

- Socrates
This is what you shall do: love the earth and sun, and animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence towards the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown, or to any man or number of men; go freely with the powerful uneducated persons, and with the young, and mothers, of families: read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life: re-examine all you have been told at school or church, or in any books, and dismiss whatever insults your soul.

- Whitman, Walt
All, or the greatest part of men that have aspired to riches or power, have attained thereunto either by force or fraud, and what they have by craft or cruelty gained, to cover the foulness of their fact, they call purchase, as a name more honest. Howsoever, he that for want of will or wit useth not those means, must rest in servitude and poverty.

- Raleigh, Sir Walter
Be not penny-wise. Riches have wings. Sometimes they fly away of themselves, and sometimes they must be set flying to bring in more.

- Bacon, Francis
Fashion for the most part is nothing but the ostentation of riches.

- Locke, John
Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.

- Mother Teresa
A certain kind of rich man afflicted with the symptoms of moral dandyism sooner or later comes to the conclusion that it isn't enough merely to make money. He feels obliged to hold views, to espouse causes and elect Presidents, to explain to a trembling world how and why the world went wrong. The spectacle is nearly always comic.

- Lapham, Lewis H.
Riches have never fascinated me, unless combined with the greatest charm or distinction.

With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to me as a floating cloud.

- Confucius
Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile.

- Sir Wilfred Grenfell
Have you never been moved by poor men's fidelity, the image of you they form in their simple minds? Why should you always talk of their envy, without understanding that what they ask of you is not so much your worldly goods, as something very hard to define, which they themselves can put no name to; yet at times it consoles their loneliness; a dream of splendor, of magnificence, a tawdry dream, a poor man's dream --and yet God blesses it!

- Bernanos, Georges
