The highest use of capital is not to make more money, but to make money do more for the betterment of life. Henry Ford (1863-1947)
I'm proud to be paying taxes in the United States. The only thing is – I could be just as proud for half the money. Arthur Godfrey
The trick is to stop thinking it as 'your' money. IRS auditor
A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things. (The Bible: Eccl 10:19 KJV)
People who work hard sleep well, whether they eat little or much. But the rich are always worrying and seldom get a good night's sleep. There is another serious problem I have seen in the world. Riches are sometimes hoarded to the harm of the saver, or they are put into risky investments that turn sour, and everything is lost. In the end, there is nothing left to pass on to one's children. People who live only for wealth come to the end of their lives as naked and empty--handed as on the day they were born. (The Bible: Eccl 5:12-15 NLT)
Mo Money - Mo Problems Hit song by Puff Daddy and Maze
Laugh of The Day: A very successful lawyer parked his brand-new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck passed too close and completely tore off the door on the driver's side. The lawyer immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialed 911, and within minutes a policeman pulled up. Before the officer had a chance to ask any questions, the lawyer started screaming hysterically. His Lexus, which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter what the body shop did to it.
When the lawyer finally wound down from his ranting and raving, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief. "I can't believe how materialistic you lawyers are," he said. "You are so focused on your possessions that you don't notice anything else."
"How can you say such a thing?" asked the lawyer.
The cop replied, "Don't you know that your left arm is missing from the elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you."
"Oh My God!" screamed the lawyer. "Where's my Rolex?"
