Wealth quotes
Wealth
If the people are happy, united, wealthy, and powerful, we presume the rest. We conclude that to be good from whence good is derived.

- Burke, Edmund
There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.

- Mother Teresa
To get rich never risk your health. For it is the truth that health is the wealth of wealth.

- Baker, Richard
The person who does not know how to live while they are making a living is a poorer person after their wealth is won than when they started.

- Holland, Josiah Gilbert
Whoever does not regard what he has as most ample wealth, is unhappy, though he be master of the world.

- Epictetus
Science is, I verily believe, like virtue, its own exceeding great reward. I can conceive few human states more enviable than that of the man to whom--panting in the foul laboratory, or watching for his life in the tropic forest--Isis shall for a moment lift her sacred veil and show him, once and for ever, the thing he dreamed not of, some law, or even mere hint of a law, explaining one fact: but explaining with it a thousand more, connecting them all with each other and with the mighty whole, till order and meaning shoots through some old chaos of scattered observations. Is not that a joy, a prize, which wealth cannot give nor poverty take away? What it may lead to he knows not. Of what use it may be he knows not. But this he knows, that somewhere it must lead, of some use it will be. For it is a truth.

- Lectures on Science and Superstition. 1866.
Superfluous wealth can buy superfluities only. Money is not required to buy one necessary of the soul.

- Thoreau, Henry David
As regards the celebrated struggle for life, it seems to me for the present to have been rather asserted than proved. It does occur, but as the exception; the general aspect of life is not hunger and distress, but rather wealth, luxury, even absurd prodigality -- where there is a struggle it is a struggle for power.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
Nothing is more intolerable than a wealthy woman.

- Juvenal
Take all that is given whether wealth, love or language, nothing comes by mistake and with good digestion all can be turned to health.

- Herbert, George
Plots, true or false, are necessary things, to raise up commonwealths, and ruin kings.

- Dryden, John
There exists a false aristocracy based on family name, property, and inherited wealth. But there likewise exists a true aristocracy based on intelligence, talent and virtue.

- Tom Robbins
Although they posses enough, and more than enough still they yearn for more.

- Ovid
The profession of a prostitute is the only career in which the maximum income is paid to the newest apprentice. It is the one calling in which at the beginning the only exertion is that of self-indulgence; all the prizes are at the commencement. It is the ever-new embodiment of the old fable of the sale of the soul to the Devil. The tempter offers wealth, comfort, excitement, but in return the victim must sell her soul, nor does the other party forget to exact his due to the uttermost farthing.

- Booth, William
Eulogy. Praise of a person who has either the advantages of wealth and power, or the consideration to be dead.

- Bierce, Ambrose
How unfair the fate which ordains that those who have the least should be always adding to the treasury of the wealthy.

- Terence
Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
Nothing is more admirable than the fortitude with which millionaires tolerate the disadvantages of their wealth.

- Rex Stout
If you know how rich you are then you are not rich. But us, we do not know the vastness of our wealth. That's how rich we are.

- Imelda Marcos
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted
