Riches quotes
Riches
1.

INCOME, n. The natural and rational gauge and measure of respectability, the commonly accepted standards being artificial, arbitrary and fallacious; for, as "Sir Sycophas Chrysolater" in the play has justly remarked, "the true use and function of property (in whatsoever it consisteth -- coins, or land, or houses, or merchant- stuff, or anything which may be named as holden of right to one's own subservience) as also of honors, titles, preferments and place, and all favor and acquaintance of persons of quality or ableness, are but to get money. Hence it followeth that all things are truly to be rated as of worth in measure of their serviceableness to that end; and their possessors should take rank in agreement thereto, neither the lord of an unproducing manor, howsoever broad and ancient, nor he who bears an unremunerate dignity, nor yet the pauper favorite of a king, being esteemed of level excellency with him whose riches are of daily accretion; and hardly should they whose wealth is barren claim and rightly take more honor than the poor and unworthy."

- Ambrose Bierce
2.

You cannot hold on to anything good. You must be continually giving -- and getting. You cannot hold on to your seed. You must sow it -- and reap anew. You cannot hold on to riches. You must use them and get other riches in return.

- Collier, Robert
3.

The trouble is that rich people, well-to-do people, very often don't really know who the poor are; and that is why we can forgive them, for knowledge can only lead to love, and love to service. And so, if they are not touched by them, it's because they do not know them.

- Mother Teresa
4.

The renown which riches or beauty confer is fleeting and frail; mental excellence is a splendid and lasting possession.

- Sallust
5.

He who knows he has enough is rich.

- Lao-Tzu
6.

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
7.

A man that hoards up riches and enjoys them not, is like an ass that carries gold and eats thistles.

- Richard Burton
8.

A sumptuous dwelling the rich man hath. And dainty is his repast; but remember that luxury's prodigal hand keeps the furnace of toil in blast.

- Hewitt, Mary Elizabeth
9.

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
10.

If only the people who worry about their liabilities would think about the riches they do possess, they would stop worrying.

- Carnegie, Dale
11.

So our Lord God commonly gave riches to those gross asses to whom he vouchsafed nothing else.

- Luther, Martin
12.

The rich will do anything for the poor but get off their backs.

- Marx, Karl
13.

He is richest who is content with the least.

- Socrates
14.

There is some magic in wealth, which can thus make persons pay their court to it, when it does not even benefit themselves. How strange it is, that a fool or knave, with riches, should be treated with more respect by the world, than a good man, or a wise man in poverty!

- Ann Radcliffe
15.

Riches cover a multitude of woes.

- Menander
16.

My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants.

- Brotherton, J.
17.

Death and life have their determined appointments; riches and honors depend upon heaven.

- Confucius
18.

You have available to you, right now, a powerful supercomputer. This powerful tool has been used through-out history to take people from rags to riches, from poverty and obscurity to success and fame, from unhappiness and frustration to joy and self-fulfillment, and it can do the same for you.

- Tracy, Brian
19.

The impression forces itself upon one that men measure by false standards, that everyone seeks power, success, riches for himself, and admires others who attain them, while undervaluing the truly precious thing in life.

- Freud, Sigmund
20.

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
