Wealth quotes
Wealth
There is no real wealth but the labor of man.

- Shelley, Percy Bysshe
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and Jill a wealthy widow.

NOBLEMAN, n. Nature's provision for wealthy American minds ambitious to incur social distinction and suffer high life.

- Ambrose Bierce
The real measure of your wealth is how much you'd be worth if you lost all your money.

The wealth that cannot be administered is a burden.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Great eagerness in the pursuit of wealth, pleasure, or honor, cannot exist without sin.

- Erasmus, Desiderius
Wealth is conspicuous, but poverty hides.

- Reston, James
Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duty, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.

- Churchill, Winston
Short of genius a rich man cannot even imagine poverty.

- Peguy, Charles
Be charitable before wealth makes you covetous.

- Browne, Sir Thomas
Unlike any other business in the United States, sports must preserve an illusion of perfect innocence. The mounting of this illusion defines the purpose and accounts for the immense wealth of American sports. It is the ceremony of innocence that the fans pay to see -- not the game or the match or the bout, but the ritual portrayal of a world in which time stops and all hope remains plausible, in which everybody present can recover the blameless expectations of a child, where the forces of light always triumph over the powers of darkness.

- Lapham, Lewis H.
Whether you wind up with a nest egg or a goose egg depends on the kind of chick you married

- Wall Street Journal
EULOGY, n. Praise of a person who has either the advantages of wealth and power, or the consideration to be dead.

- Ambrose Bierce
Ill fares the land, to hast'ning ill a prey, Where wealth accumulates, and men decay; Princes and Lords may flourish, or may fade: A breath can make them, as a breath has made; but a bold peasantry, their country's pride, When once destroyed can never be supplied.

- Oliver Goldsmith
I have about concluded that wealth is a state of mind, and that anyone can acquire a wealthy state of mind by thinking rich thoughts.

- Young, Andrew
No one is so miserable as the poor person who maintains the appearance of wealth.

- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
Property left to a child may soon be lost; but the inheritance of virtue--a good name an unblemished reputation--will abide forever. If those who are toiling for wealth to leave their children, would but take half the pains to secure for them virtuous habits, how much more serviceable would they be. The largest property may be wrested from a child, but virtue will stand by him to the last.

- William Graham Sumner
Much learning shows how little mortals know; much wealth, how little wordings enjoy.

- Young, Edward
It is certain that stealing nourishes courage, strength, skill, tact, in a word, all the virtues useful to a republican system and consequently to our own. Lay partiality aside, and answer me: is theft, whose effect is to distribute wealth more evenly, to be branded as a wrong in our day, under our government which aims at equality? Plainly, the answer is no.

- Sade, Marquis De
When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes... Haply I think on thee, and then my state, Like to the lark at break of day arising From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate; For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

- William Shakespeare
