It’s because I actually care.

And even sadness was also something for rich people, for people who could afford it, for people who didn’t have anything better to do. Sadness was a luxury.
Clarice Lispector
I call people rich when they’re able to meet the requirements of their imagination.

The San Gabriel Valley, stretching from Pasadena to Pomona, is especially starved for open space. The valley has a rich array of ethnically diverse communities, but it also has some of the highest rates of childhood obesity and diabetes in the state.
Frances Beinecke
There is a serious defect in the thinking of someone who wants – more than anything else – to become rich. As long as they don’t have the money, it’ll seem like a worthwhile goal. Once they do, they’ll understand how important other things are – and have always been.
Benjamin Jowett
Christian hope does not promise successful days to the rich and the strong, but resurrection and life to those who must exist in the shadows of death.В  Success is no name of God. Righteousness is.

George Bernard Shaw
I was surprised, as always, be how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt. The world was suddenly rich with possibility.

George W. Bush
You don’t seem to realize that a poor person who is unhappy is in a better position than a rich person who is unhappy. Because the poor person has hope. He thinks money would help.

Ted is smart and good-looking, but he doesn’t use it to good effect, like a rich person that never gives to charity.
David Levithan
If all you succeed in doing in life is getting rich by buying little pieces of paper, it’s a failed life. Life is more than being shrewd in wealth accumulation.

Jay Leno
The fact is that the rich are getting richer while the poor are being left behind. Women remain under-represented in boardrooms and under-engaged in the global workforce. Environmental change is leaving the poorest countries vulnerable. Voters are becoming more and more politically polarised and partisan.
Richard Quest
For the rich, it’s not about getting more stuff. It’s about having the freedom to make almost any decision you want.
T. Harv Eker

Joseph B. Wirthlin

Franka Potente
Tell me a musician who’s got rich off digital sales. Apple’s doing pretty good though, right?

Michael Arrington
There are rich people, and there are those who have money. They are not the same people.
Coco Chanel
My motives at a young age were, “I want to be rich and famous”.
Terry Bozzio
All reporters have a stripe of irreverence in their mental makeup. It usually keeps them from turning into toadies, a danger for those who associate, even in an adversarial way, with the rich and powerful.
Carolyn Hart
Now, for some of you it doesn’t matter. You were born rich and you’re going to stay rich. But here’s my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can’t buy backbone. Don’t let them forget it. Thank you.
Bill Murray
Art is a critical component in a well-rounded education. Art is the level playing field – no matter how rich or poor, tall or short, pretty or ugly to the bone, if you can draw, you can find personal fulfillment and build self-confidence. Art is the highest achievement of mankind.
Lynda Resnick
When the success of ‘Crazy Rich’ hit, it’s like everybody knows exactly who you are, and the way that they speak to you is different. I’ve stayed the same throughout. It’s just people’s perception of you changes.
Henry Golding
It is in vain to ridicule a rich fool, for the laughers will be on his side.
Jean de la Bruyere
I think now that being free is not being powerful or rich or well regarded or without obligation but being able to love. To love someone else enough to forget about yourself even for one moment is to be free.
Jeanette Winterson
I was born rich. Not in tangible things… but rich in the parents I had.
Ross Perot
They that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil.

Oliver Goldsmith
Dublin university contains the cream of Ireland: Rich and thick.

English is big business and languages are dying as never before. Is there a connection? Is this another manifestation of McDonaldisation – the undesirable face of globalization? Do we want to lose the variety of languages and all the rich culture that comes with them?
Patricia Ryan
Rich by nature, poor by policy’ might be written over Canada’s door.
Goldwin Smith
A speculator is a man who, if he dies at the right time, has a rich widow.

Nicolas Chamfort
When Obama talks about raising taxes on the rich, he’s looking at me.
Kenny Chesney
The plodding thrift and scrupulous integrity and long-winded patient industry of our business men of the last century are out of fashion in these “giddy-paced” times, and England is forgetting that those who make haste to be rich can hardly avoid much temptation and some sin.
Fanny Kemble
When so rich a harvest is before us, why do we not gather it? All is in our hands if we will but use it.
Elizabeth Ann Seton
It is always a temptation to a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say:-
‘Though we know we should defeat you,
we have not the time to meet you,
We will therefore pay you cash to go away.’
Rudyard Kipling
This is the ultimate cruelty, isn’t it? That I can talk and talk and to anyone listening, it’s only air–too rich a diet to be swallowed by a mundane world.
David Henry Hwang
Lifestyles of the rich and famous. Well I’m rich and famous but if you got money, they know what you’re name is. If you don’t, you’re nameless.

Bob Hope
By success, of course, I do not mean that you may become rich, famous, or powerful for that does not, of necessity, represent achievement. Indeed, not infrequently, such individuals represent pathetic failure as persons.
Norman Vincent Peale
Lemberger’s stories are marvelous compounds of scholarship, imagination and empathy. Brought to life with rich historical detail, these biblical women, sidelined and silenced for centuries, prove to be audacious, utterly relatable, and spellbinding companions.
Michelle Huneven
The philosophy of the rich and the poor is this: the rich invest their money and spend what is left. The poor spend their money and invest what is left.

Rohini Nilekani
If we want the whole world to be rich, we need to start loving wealth. In the difference between poverty and plenty, the problem is the pverty, not the difference. Wealth is good.
P. J. O’Rourke
I don’t believe all rich people are selfless philanthropists.
Bernard Goldberg
Seattle is like a global gumbo, a melting pot with all kinds of people – the rich, the poor, white people, some Chinese, Filipino, Jewish and black people – they’re all here.
Quincy Jones
Whatever results you’re getting, be they rich or poor, good or bad, positive or negative, always remember that your outer world is simply a reflection of your inner world. If things aren’t going well in your outer life, it’s because things aren’t going well in your inner life. It’s that simple.

Kathy Freston
If religion and science could be united on the common ground of biological conservation, the problem would be soon solved. If there is any moral precept shared by people of all beliefs, it is that we owe ourselves and future generations a beautiful, rich, and healthful environment.
E. O. Wilson
The truth is, however rich people get, they hate paying tax. Some live abroad for a year, or years at a time just to avoid it. Bizarre really – desperate economic migrants are driven to leave their homeland because of poverty; tax exiles are driven overseas by their wealth.
Clint Black
That song [“Money to Burn”] is me being a fly on the wall in situations in LA. I mean, I’ve seen the way a lot of people operate and I’ve seen that sort of thing go down. There’s a lot of rich kids with a little bit of extra money.
Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:
Hark! now I hear them — Ding-dong, bell.
William Shakespeare
As a young kid, I really wanted to be rich.
Robert Kiyosaki
If my career continues along its current arc, people will probably look at me and see a writer who is obsessed with the relationship between rich and poor and with how the rich somehow or other always manage to betray the poor, even when they don’t mean to.
Richard Russo
I didn’t have life that good coming up. I wasn’t born with a lot of money. We weren’t dirt poor, but we weren’t rich. All I knew was struggle.
The difference between rich and poor is becoming more extreme, and as income inequality widens the wealth gap in major nations, education, health and social mobility are all threatened.
Helene D. Gayle
All politicians, even the most idealistic ones, are looking for money, sucking up to rich people.

Ann Landers
Finally, one night we were smoking pot [with Michael O’Donoghue] and talking about the people that are invariably in high school, whether you go to prep school or public school or ghetto school or rich suburban school. And actually, it spun off from a Kurt Vonnegut quote.
P. J. O’Rourke
About the only difference between the poor and the rich, is this, the poor suffer misery, while the rich have to enjoy it.
Josh Billings
The greatest trick the rich – and their cheerleaders on the right – ever pulled was convincing the world that class didn’t exist. Out here in the real world, it is more real and more rigid than it has been for a century.
Johann Hari
The fate of a single man can be rich with significance, that of a few hundred less so, but the history of thousands and millions of men does not mean anything at all, in any adequate sense of the word.
Stanislaw Lem
My dad was a bartender. My mom was a cashier, a maid and a stock clerk at K-Mart. They never made it big. They were never rich. And yet they were successful. Because just a few decades removed from hopelessness, they made possible for us all the things that had been impossible for them.
Marco Rubio
If globalization is to succeed, it must succeed for poor and rich alike. It must deliver rights no less than riches. It must provide social justice and equity no less than economic prosperity and enhanced communication.
Kofi Annan
He is rich enough who does not want bread.
St. Jerome
If you get rich in the name of the poor, fine and dandy. The problem is when you earn it. If you earn the money in the private sector by starting a business and hiring a lot of people, that’s when you become the enemy.
Rush Limbaugh
I don’t care how rich and successful a man is. He’s nothing without an education.
Rodney Dangerfield
Empire of Deception is a sure thing–a book guaranteed to entertain and make you rich (in knowledge, that is). Dean Jobb has found a fascinating yet little-known jazz-age tale and told it with style and smarts. Get in on the action.
Jonathan Eig
All i would like to say is that I’m rich and you’re not.
Noel Gallagher
A nation has a soul, a spiritual principle. One is in the past, the other in the present. One is the possession of a rich legacy of memories; the other is the desire to live together and to value the common heritage.
Ernest Renan
He buried his hands in the rich velvet of her hair. “I thought I’d die for wanting you.
Teresa Medeiros
There is nothing wrong in wanting to get rich. The desire for riches is really the desire for a richer, fuller, and more abundant life, and that desire is praise worthy.
Wallace D. Wattles
Beware Of entrance to a quarrel; but being in, Bear’t that the opposed may beware of thee. Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice; Take each man’s censure, but reserve thy judgment. Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy, But not express’d in fancy; rich, not gaudy; For the apparel oft proclaims the man.
William Shakespeare
Getting rich, or becoming outstanding at anything is all a matter of attitude. You must make up your mind once and for all – you commit yourself – and then just stay with it until you finally have what you set out to get.
Earl Nightingale
A very dear friend of mine great actress named Wendy Rich Stetson was very active in the theater department at Amherst and I went to all the plays she was in, and it became very clear to me that what she was doing was something I wanted to be doing.

Three reasons not to have a [spending] plan: 1. You’re rich enough to buy anything you want and still have plenty of money left over. 2. I forget the other two.

M. F. K. Fisher
Everybody wants to talk about black and white, when the situation is really about rich people against poor people.
Charles Barkley
I’m from a middle class family. I didn’t grow-up rich, but I didn’t grow-up poor. Each guy has to stick to his own story.
Love is a moment of stillness that sometimes a word can shatter to pieces. Or love can be a thing that endures, a rich, deep current flowing unending through the years.
Louis L’Amour
We are not interested in cloning the Michael Jordans and the Michael Jacksons of this world. The rich and the famous don’t participate in this.
Panayiotis Zavos
We are apt to rely upon future prospects, and become really expensive while we are only rich in possibility. We live up to our expectations, not to our possessions, and make a figure proportionable to what we may be, not what we are.
Joseph Addison
Clinton’s pardoning of Marc Rich was off-the-wall.
Morley Safer
Whether people be of high or low birth, rich or poor, old or young, enlightened or confused, they are all alike in that they will one day die.

Charles Barkley
The truth is that money doesn’t make you rich; knowledge does.
Robert Kiyosaki
People in the big rich countries are often extremely dismissive of the small countries. They think nothing that happens there is of any interest or that it matters at all, but, at the very least, with that attitude they miss out on some extraordinary stories.
Francisco Goldman
Wisdom ruleth in counsel — so do riches.
Lancelot Andrewes
We face a dilemma because although everybody is better off than they’ve ever been at any time in our history, we’ve also got the biggest gap between the rich and the poor that we’ve ever had, and we’ve potentially got a planet which is going to go bust any day.
Stuart Rose
Come, then,” returned the nephew gaily. “What right have you to be dismal? What reason have you to be morose? You’re rich enough.
Charles Dickens
I’m not supposed to say it, but I was not guilty of any crime. I became a target because I was a strong and a rich woman who had been very successful.
Martha Stewart
Jim Rich is many different things but he has a great combination of a kind of old school tabloid reporter and editor’s sense for what’s a great story, but he’s also incredibly passionate about social justice. I think Shaun King called him the most woke editor in American, if that’s a compliment.
Lydia Polgreen
A man must consider what a rich realm he abdicates when he becomes a conformist.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I think truth is a layered phenomenon. There are many truths that accumulate and build up. I am trying to peel back and explore these rich layers of truth. All truths are difficult to reach.
Sally Mann
Nature herself makes the wise man rich.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
A lot of women feel it’s a man’s world. Some people think all you need to do is marry a rich guy, and you don’t need to do anything with your life. I would hate that. I don’t care whether he has money or he doesn’t, because I don’t need it, and that’s a good feeling that I don’t have to worry about that.
Paris Hilton
The teeming Autumn big with rich increase, bearing the wanton burden of the prime like widowed wombs after their lords decease.
William Shakespeare
The satisfaction of short fiction does not come close to the rich pleasure I get as a writer in the long deep immersion in the same long work and its growing complexity. I suppose you might say I love to wallow in my characters and imaginary worlds. I love to play with the whole necklace, not just one glittering stone.
Vera Nazarian
Tis the mind that makes the body rich.
William Shakespeare
You shoulda shot that fella a long time ago. Now he’s too rich to kill.
Chill Wills
Being rich is not about how much money you have or how many homes you own; it’s the freedom to buy any book you want without looking at the price and wondering if you can afford it.
John Waters
In fact, I have a problem with too much money… I can’t reinvest it fast enough, and because I reinvest it, more money comes in. Yes, the rich do get richer.
Robert Kiyosaki
Money is plentiful for those who understand the simple laws which govern its acquisition.
George S. Clason
To love is for the Soul to choose a companion, and travel with it along the perilous defiles and winding ways of life; mutually sustaining, when it is rugged with obstructions, and mutually rejoicing, when rich broad plains and sunny slopes make journeying delight.
George Henry Lewes
Nothing is wasted in the sea; every particle of material is used over and over again, first by one creature, then by another. And when in spring the waters are deeply stirred, the warm bottom water brings to the surface a rich supply of minerals, ready for use by new forms of life.
Rachel Carson
The rich don’t have children; they have heirs.
Peter Charles Newman

Frank Spotnitz
And yet the world we live in-its divisions and conflicts, its widening gap between rich and poor, its seemingly inexplicable outbursts of violence-is shaped far less by what we celebrate and mythologize than by the painful events we try to forget. Leopold’s Congo is but one of those silences of history.
Adam Hochschild
People say Yogi (Berra) is a strange guy, and I’ve heard Yogi say some funny things. But he has a beautiful wife, he’s rich, and he’s famous. I don’t see anything strange about that.

But rich or poor, black or white, none of us are entitled to anything.

Matt Smith
Vampires get the joy of flying around and living forever, werewolves get the joy of animal spirits. But zombies, they’re not rich, or aristocratic, they shuffle around. They’re a group phenomenon, they’re not very fast, they’re quite sickly. So what’s the pleasure of being one?
Margaret Atwood
I met rich men and they became my boyfriends. When I was a kept woman’it was a relationship.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Phil Klay
How to get rich … whenever I meet people, that’s usually what they want to know from me. You ask a banker how he makes bread. You ask a billionaire how he makes money.
Donald Trump
Herman Cain answered the Wall Street protesters, and he had a message for these protesters. He said, ‘If you don’t have a job, if you’re not rich, don’t blame Wall Street, don’t blame the banks, blame yourself.’ And a nation of out of work teabaggers said, ‘Yeah! Hey, wait a minute.’
Bill Maher
As long as there are rich people who have poor people they can send to fight their wars.. We will never have peace

Linda Hoaglund
The reason why we see that people of the greatest capacity are not rich, is either they despise wealth in comparison to something else, or, they are not content in getting an estate, unless they may do it in their own way, while at the same time enjoying all the pleasures and gratitude’s of life.
Eustace Budgell
A man is sane morally at thirty, rich mentally at forty, wise spiritually at fifty-or never!
William Osler
A free America… means just this: individual freedom for all, rich or poor, or else this system of government we call democracy is only an expedient to enslave man to the machine and make him like it.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The most striking thing about the rich is the gracious democracy of their manners — and the crude vulgarity of their way of life.
Edward Abbey
Our struggle is not easy. Those who oppose our cause are rich and powerful and they have many allies in high places. We are poor. Our allies are few. But we have something the rich do not own. We have our bodies and spirits and the justice of our cause as our weapons.

Lew Wallace
It’s okay to be eccentric if you’re rich; otherwise you’re just crazy.
Yvon Chouinard

John A. McDougall
The rich are different from us.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
If thou be rich, strive to command thy money, lest it command thee.
Francis Quarles
Among the idle rich, boredom is one of the most common causes of unhappiness. People who have difficulty in earning their living may suffer greatly, but they are not bored. Wealthy men and women become bored when they depend upon the theater for their enjoyment instead of making their own lives interesting.
Andre Maurois
Many of my colleagues are blissfully unaware of the global percentage of people who cannot EVER go to a movie theater, let alone with an entire family. I do not want to make movies for the rich.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
You have to be very rich or very poor to live without a trade.
Albert Camus
Nature never set forth the earth in so rich tapestry as divers poets have done; neither with pleasant rivers, fruitful trees, sweet-smelling flowers, nor whatsoever else may make the too-much-loved earth more lovely; her world is brazen, the poets only deliver a golden.
Philip Sidney
Many people don’t have the ability to be rich, because they’re too lazy or they don’t have the desire or the stick-to-itiveness. It’s a talent. Some people have a talent for piano. Some people have a talent for raising a family. Some people have a talent for golf. I just happen to have a talent for making money.
Donald Trump
If you miss the bus, miss the train, you’d be left behind. So everyone says, let’s get on the train, let’s get on the bus and go faster and get rich… I just didn’t like that kind of lifestyle. I love to read books, to listen to music.
Haruki Murakami
When I was in the West Coast watching the Giants, Rich Aurilia was a guy I always liked.
Aaron Judge
I think the UN’s role – especially since it’s not an extremely rich fund, and that’s to put it mildly – is mainly to act as a leading thinker of the world in terms of how to think about the future.
Amartya Sen
The Latin musical tradition is very rich and gives the singer a lot of freedom to explore a range of
Ednita Nazario
The rich will strive to establish their dominion and enslave the rest. They
always did…they always will. They will have the same effect here as
elsewhere, if we do not, by the power of government, keep them in their proper
Gouverneur Morris
Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.
Gautama Buddha
There are almost no beautiful cities in America, though there are many beautiful parts of cities, and some sections that are glorious without being beautiful, like downtown Chicago. Cities are too big and too rich for beauty; they have outgrown themselves too many times.
Noel Perrin
Why should physical processing give rise to a rich inner life at all? It seems objectively unreasonable that it should, and yet it does.
David Chalmers
God evidently does not intend us all to be rich, or powerful or great, but He does intend us all to be friends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
My dad never graduated high school. He was a printing salesman. We lived in a two-bedroom, one-bath house in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. We weren’t rich – but we felt secure.
Al Franken
Rich people don’t pay taxes? Of course they pay taxes – they pay tons in taxes. They pay for everyone else who doesn’t pay taxes.
Adam Carolla
I would assume that there is a greater amount of joy for you in being able to write and help produce your own stuff and make a decent living, but not get rich versus always doing the other stuff that you don’t write, and make more money.
Julie Delpy
History and social sciences were my interests. I was always interested in knowing how societies get organized, why there is rich and poor divide, why there are classes. I was never apolitical. I think we are all political in a way. Politics decides our day-to-day life.
Pawan Kalyan
I see no present solution of a great and intricate problem but that the rich should realize their duty to the poor.
Gertrude Atherton
Hip-hop is rich in musical allusion. It takes something that already existed, respects it, and reuses it.
K. Flay
The rich pearl of life, Soon moulders in its blackened urn, the tomb.
Isaac McLellan
Money doesn’t make the man. Some people have money, and some people are rich.
Thomas A. Dorsey
Poetry is priceless…. a way of keeping yourself feeling rich and civilized even when you’re quite poor.
Marie Ponsot
We get these questions a lot from the enterprising young. It’s a very intelligent question: You look at some old guy who’s rich and you ask, ‘How can I become like you, except faster?’
Charlie Munger
I think media has lost its way. We must recognize that the proprietors of these organizations have put on a form of censorship. Basically, they’re more interested in celebrity, narcissism, rich people, good-looking people, and successful sportsmen.
Don McCullin
I’m a little lavish I must admit. But I’m not really concerned with money. Being rich is not my goal, being wealthy is.

A commitment to sexual equality with males is a commitment to becoming the rich instead of the poor, the rapist instead of the raped, the murderer instead of the murdered.
Andrea Dworkin
People are experience-rich and theory-poor. I help people organize / make sense of their experiences.
Malcolm Gladwell
Not all the pride of beauty; Those eyes, that tell us what the sun is made of; Those lips, whose touch is to be bought with life; Those hills of driven snow, which seen are felt: All these possessed are nought, but as they are The proof, the substance of an inward passion, And the rich plunder of a taken heart.
Edward Young
I have a rich, full, textured life.
Lainie Kazan
I am moved by the spirit of Angolans and the work UNICEF is doing, but I am saddened by the hardships I have seen, and the fact that a little flexing of financial muscle from rich countries could do so much.
Alyssa Milano
Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder have created a compelling vision for a Clean Tech Nation and a roadmap for creating it, even as they surprise and delight readers with a rich account of progress already achieved. I salute their unique combination of technical savvy, practical sense, and imperishable enthusiasm.
Ralph Cavanagh
Chess is a game sufficiently rich in meaning that it is easily capable of containing elements of both tragedy and comedy.
Luke McShane
Who is rich? He that rejoices in his portion.
Benjamin Franklin
Yes, in socialism the rich will be poorer – but the poor will also be poorer. People will lose interest in really working hard and creating jobs.
Thomas Peterffy
Go rich in poverty. Go rich in poetry. This nothingness is plentitude.
May Sarton
It’s not that we can predict bubbles – if we could, we would be rich. But we can certainly have a bubble warning system.
Richard Thaler
A woman can never be too rich or too thin, but until very, very recently, she could be too powerful, for which – if she wasn’t smart enough to camouflage herself – she generally paid the price.
Stacy Schiff
Obama seems to want to do something to damage rich people.
George P. Shultz
I’m busier than ever and it’s led to new opportunities. But I’ve never worried about being rich or famous – for me, it’s all about the dancing.
Anton du Beke
The trained mind is a rich mind.
Robert Kiyosaki
I’m a little lavish I must admit. But I’m not really concerned with money. Being rich is not my goal, being wealthy is.
CeeLo Green
That’s an important Obama accomplishment: he raised taxes back to Bill Clinton levels, and made a major dent in inequality doing so. That’s certain to be reversed, that’s going to disappear. The Republicans are going to slash the rich’s taxes.
Jonathan Chait
The pro athlete is a sad tale. He signs a big contract and thinks he’s set for life. I didn’t think I was set for life, and I don’t now. As athletes, we are important, celebrities, in demand and rich. Then we are out of the game and we are not important, not celebrities, not in demand and not rich.
Fran Tarkenton
She’s so thin she’s either dying or rich.
Chuck Palahniuk
Rich people are so eccentric, and I don’t think people really realize. Especially by the turn of the century, they were living like rappers.
Riki Lindhome
I was never one of those girls who dreamt of Prince Charming. To piss off my mom, I would say, ‘I’m never having kids and I’m going to be a fabulously rich old maid with cute butlers and dogs.’
Jessica Biel
In a system of free trade and free markets poor countries – and poor people – are not poor because others are rich. Indeed, if others became less rich the poor would in all probability become still poorer.
Margaret Thatcher
Fashion and riches will mask much annoyance.
Christopher Pearse Cranch
Terror is the poor man’s war, war is the rich man’s terror. Ultimately, all wars will end either in annihilation or at the negotiating table. (#) A terrorist is someone who has a bomb but can’t afford an air force.
William Blum
The rich are different than you and me: they have more money and they have more power.
Sara Paretsky
Those who go forth ministering to the wants and necessities of their fellow beings experience a rich return, their souls being as a watered garden, and a spring that faileth not
Lucretia Mott
I feel like the traditional patron system meant that you would kiss the ass of one rich person and then hide all of the financial goings-on of your work, and you could pretend you were pure.
Molly Crabapple
Everywhere you will find that the wealth of the wealthy springs from the poverty of the poor.
Peter Kropotkin
A welfare state is frightened of every poor person who tries to get in and every rich person who tries to get out.
Harry Browne
As with the onset of sudden celebrity, for the newly rich, the world often becomes a darker, narrower, less generous place; a paradox that elicits scant sympathy, but is nonetheless true.
Felix Dennis
People see owning a gallery as a way to get rich. I never thought that I could get rich in the art world. I wanted a life in art. I wanted to live with artists. I wanted to make beautiful shows.
Arne Glimcher
I am really rich. All of my life I have heard a truly successful, and even a modestly successful person, cannot run for public office – just can’t happen. Yet that’s the kind of mindset you need to make this country great again.
Donald Trump
Rich Gang is a rich look.
Robots have a rich and storied history in movies.
John Podhoretz
the wealthy white western minority of the world could not hope to prosper if most of the rest of mankind were foundering in hopeless poverty. Islands of plenty in a vast ocean of misery never have been a good recipe for commercial success.
Barbara Ward, Baroness Jackson of Lodsworth
University: … a place where rich men send their sons who have no aptitude for business.
Kin Hubbard
Flora sighed. It was curious that persons who lived what the novelists called a rich emotional life always seemed to be a bit slow on the uptake.
Stella Gibbons
My message to David Cameron, as the head of our government, is to seriously think again about this Robin Hood tax, the tax to help the poor by taking a little bit from the rich.
Keith O’Brien
Rich man and poor move side by side toward the limit of death.
The world has also learned that economic growth, by itself, cannot close the gap between rich and poor.
Dalai Lama
If a work of art is rich and vital and complete, those who have artistic instincts will see its beauty, and those to whom ethics appeal more strongly than aesthetics will see its moral lesson. It will fill the cowardly with terror, and the unclean will see in it their own shame.
Oscar Wilde
When younger writers and poets, musicians and painters are weakened by a stemming of funds, they come to me saddened, not as full of dreams and excitement and ideas. I am then weakened and diminished, and made less rich.
Maya Angelou
My soul is that of a drummer…. I didn’t do it to become rich and famous. I did it because it was the love of my life.
Ringo Starr
We’ve all heard stories of lottery winners, rock stars, heirs and heiresses, and professional athletes becoming millionaire morons who wake up rich but are broke by nightfall.
Robert Kiyosaki
The best way to get around in New York is to be both rich and patient.
Kate Simon
The more you achieve, the more interest it should spark to go further, because there’s so much – and I don’t mean monetarily and I don’t mean in society. This whole experience of living is so rich!
Susan Powter
The benefit of living in a free society is that we all have the choice to be rich, poor, or middle
class. The decision is up to you.
Robert Kiyosaki
The luckiest person in the world is somebody who is born into a small, shabby-genteel town on a major railway connection with 24,000 souls and a bird sanctuary and whose grandfather owns a farm and whose father owns a business -whose family is mildly prosperous but not rich, which means you can leave the town.
Allan Gurganus
If you can, you will quickly find that the greatest rate of return you will earn is on your own personal spending. Being a smart shopper is the first step to getting rich.
Mark Cuban
What humans do with the language of mathematics is to describe patterns… To grow mathematically children must be exposed to a rich variety of patterns appropriate to their own lives through which they can see variety, regularity, and interconnections.
Lynn Steen
Haiti is a proud nation, rich in heritage and spirituality. How they have been able to not only survive but thrive is a testament to how the Haitian people have come together to rebuild, create new families, and care for one another.
Michael Arden
Many an optimist has become rich simply by buying out a pessimist.
Laurence J. Peter
I love and revere the rich and proud history of America. And I am determined to take our best traditions into the future. But with all respect, we do not need to build a bridge to the past. We need to build a bridge to the future.
William J. Clinton
I think in the last thirty years, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer. It is not something that you can see with rose-colored glasses.
Mira Nair
It is a wise man that does know the contented man is never poor, whilst the discontented man is never rich.
Frank Herbert
Unless you are very rich and very eccentric, you will not enjoy the luxury of a computer in your own home.

Henry Taylor
Rich in saving common-sense, And, as the greatest only are, In his simplicity sublime.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
If the poor ever feel poor as the rich do, we will have a most bloody revolution.
Rebecca West
Most people call it The Book of the Dead,” he told me. “Rich Egyptians were always buried with a copy, so they could have directions through the Duat to the Land of the Dead. It’s like an Idiot’s Guide to the Afterlife.
Rick Riordan
The poor lack money. They lack money because they do not know the secret of productive wealth. They know it is possible to be old, unemployed, uneducated, lazy – even halt, deaf, dumb, and blind-and still be excessively rich. But you have to be in on the secret, and the poor by definition are not.
Louis O. Kelso
Wealth is just consistency… I don’t want to be rich. I want to be wealthy.
The rich bought wonderful clothes you recognized. The richest had their pople go to Paris and buy the entire new collection that no one outside of the fashion house has seen.
Cassandra Clare
Whatever happens, whether you get rich or stay poor, ruin your health or live to old age, you always end up back where you started: hungry for the one thing everybody loses – young loving.
Toni Morrison
Content makes poor men rich; discontent makes rich men poor.
Benjamin Franklin
The man who is rich in fancy thinks that his wagon is already built; poor fool, he does not know that there are a hundred timbers to a wagon.

Gabrielle Bernstein
Most rich people are the poorest people I know.

Imelda Marcos
We have a new generation of very rich people who want to do more with their money than buy a lot of expensive toys. They want to live meaningful lives.
Peter Singer
[The Democrats] will say that the Reagan administrtion has given benefits to the rich at the expense of the poor – a term that they define broadly to include middle-income people, women, minorities, the aged, the young, farmers, steelworkers, and others.
Herbert Stein
The cost of oblivius daydreaming was always this moment of return, the realigment with what had been before and now seemed a little worse. Her reverie, once rich in plausible details, had become a passing silliness before the hard mass of the actual. It was difficult to come back.
Ian Mcewan
Wit will never make a man rich, but there are places where riches will always make a wit.
Samuel Johnson
All the best have something in common, a regard for reality, an agreement to its primacy over the imagination. Even the richest, most surprising and wild imagination is not as rich, wild and surprising as reality. The task of the poet is to pick singular threads from this dense, colorful fabric.
Wislawa Szymborska
Were it good
To set the exact wealth of all our states
All at one cast? to set so rich a main
On the nice hazard of one doubtful hour?
It were not good.
William Shakespeare
Look, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking I said no because the whole thing would just be too Dirty Dancing , right? Summer fling at the resort, only with the roles reversed: you know, the poor working girl and the rich doctor’s son, nobody puts Baby in the corner, blah blah blah. That kind of thing.
Meg Cabot
Every other start-up wants to be another United or Delta or American. We just want to get rich.
Robert L. Priddy
Peter stood, cleared his throat, and began to hum softly, then sing, slowly building up the song as his voice cleared. He found the old tune, the song of the Sunbird. And as he sung, as his rich voice echoed off the tall cliffs, the birds and the faeries lent him their voice and soon the tune drifted throughtout the garden.
Living and breathing an authentic story is the best way to survive in a conversation-rich world.
Seth Godin
Most people who are rich chose their parents wisely.

Triple H
There’s only one good reason to be a writer-we can’t help it! We’d all like to be rich, famous and successful, but if those are our goals, we’re off on a wrong foot…I just wanted to earn enough money so I could work at home on my writing.
Phyllis A. Whitney
I heard someone say that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven. I decided to sculpt camels in a needle.
Willard Wigan
It is untrue that some are poor because others are rich. If an order of society in which incomes were equal replaced the capitalist order, everyone would become poorer.
Ludwig von Mises
To be rich you have to know what it is to be poor. Getting financially literate is part of the price you have to pay to become rich
Robert Kiyosaki
He is not rich, that enjoyeth not his own goods.
How would we feel if you could pay extra to smoke on airplanes? When we decide something is a bad idea in general for society, we don’t want the rich to be able to buy their way out of it.
Peter Gleick
You may cut off the heads of every rich man now living–of every statesman–every literary, and every scientific authority, without in the least changing the social situation. Artists, of course, disappeared long ago as social forces. So did the church. Corporations are not elevators, but levellers, as I see them.
Henry Adams
When beggars and shoeshine boys, barbers and beauticians can tell you how to get rich it is time to remind yourself that there is no more dangerous illusion than the belief that one can get something for nothing.
Bernard Baruch
The only difference between a rich man and a poor man, is that the poor man suffers uncomfortably, while the rich man suffers comfortably.
Swami Brahmananda
Who is wise? He that learns from everyone. Who is powerful? He that governs his passions. Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody.
Benjamin Franklin
Whatever is not nailed down is mine.” This is the motto of the exploiter. “Whatever can be pried loose is not nailed down.” This is the second maxim in a country where people are rich, caring little in their present prosperity what shall become of the future.
David Starr Jordan
An inventor is someone who makes another man rich.
David Sarnoff
Many men of course became extremely rich, but this was perfectly natural and nothing to be ashamed of because no one was really poor, at least no one worth speaking of.
Douglas Adams
Ann Romney… looked to me like a corporate wife. The stories she told about struggles – eh! It’s hard for me to believe. I mean, she’s a very rich woman, and I know that, and America knows that.
Juan Williams
I’m from where…Rich and A hit the kitchen they were pitchin up
Oscar Wilde said the rich and the poor are equal – they can both sleep under the bridge. Right? Do they have a right? You’re damn right they have a right!

It is incredible how rich you can get by not being perfect
Larry Hite
… frugality makes a poor man rich.
Seneca the Younger
… it is a most severe trial for those women to be called to lay down beauty, who have nothing else to take up. It is for this sober season of life that education should lay up its rich resources.
Hannah More
If you don’t first handle fear and desire, and you get rich, you’ll only be a highpay slave.
Robert Kiyosaki
For all riches come from iniquity, and unless one were to lose another could not gain. Hence the common adage seems to me to be very true: The rich man is unjust or the heir of an unjust one.
St. Jerome
Baseball’s rich in wonderful statistics, but it’s hard to find one more beautiful than Stan Musial’s hitting record. He didn’t care where he was, he just hit.
George Will
I find it very beautiful to work in different countries because I see the mentality differences there. It is so rich, one always carries forward something.
Michelle Hunziker
He always pictured himself a libertarian, which to my way of thinking means “I want the liberty to grow rich and you can have the liberty to starve”. It’s easy to believe that no one should depend on society for help when you yourself happen not to need such help.
Isaac Asimov
Bush is a natural-born loser with a filthy-rich daddy who pimped his son out to rich oil-mongers. He hates music, football and sex, in no particular order, and he is no fun at all.
Hunter S. Thompson
Conservation is sometimes perceived as stopping everything cold, as holding whooping cranes in higher esteem than people. It is up to science to spread the understanding that the choice is not between wild places or people, it is between a rich or an impoverished existence for Man.
Thomas Lovejoy
We need to teach our kids, because there is such a celebrity culture at the moment, that however rich you are, however famous you are, however glamorous you are, everyone has to live by the same rules.
Nick Clegg
The blessings of one mountain day, whatever his fate, long life, short life, stormy or calm, he is rich forever.
John Muir
If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.
E. O. Wilson
The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.
Anatole France
I tend to write poetry that is rich in data of various sorts. The lyric poem isn’t perfectly suited to accommodating such data, so I’ve had to find new ways to say everything that I want to say.
Campbell McGrath
The education here intended in not merely that of the children of the rich and noble, but of every rank and class of people, down to the lowest and the poorest. It is not too much to say that schools for the education of all should be placed at convenient distances, and maintained at the public expense.
John Adams
We have technology, finally, that for the first time in human history allows people to really maintain rich connections with much larger numbers of people.
Pierre Omidyar
We might be on the brink of an apocalypse if, instead of poor people with suicide bombs killing middle class guys, middle-class people with suicide bombs started killing rich guys.
Bruce Sterling
Most of the money given by rich people in “charity” is made up of conscience money, “ransom,” political bribery, and bids for titles…. One buys moral credit by signing a cheque, which is easier than turning a prayer wheel.
George Bernard Shaw
Your mind now, moldering like wedding-cake, heavy with useless experience, rich with suspicion, rumour, fantasy, crumbling to pieces under the knife-edge of mere fact. In the prime of your life.
Adrienne Rich
The most expensive hobby a rich man could have is a boat, and the second most expensive hobby he could have is a very old house.

Malcolm Muggeridge
If you are young child and you’ve lost mother and dad to AIDS and rich nations sit on the sidelines not caring, you will become a frustrated person and a hopeless person.
George W. Bush
A bicultural upbringing is a rich but imperfect thing
Jhumpa Lahiri
I could be a school teacher and be rich. It has nothing to do with your money; it has to do with your knowledge. If I was a school teacher, I would be ten times richer because I have more time off! They get the summer off, holidays off, weekends off.
Robert Kiyosaki
Carlos Tevez is so rich that when he retires he’ll never have to play football again
Andy Gray
I am rich and famous. I have a talented and gorgeous husband and two beautiful children. I could go on.
Madonna Ciccone
I’m still a communist in the sense that I don’t believe the world will survive with the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer – I think that the pressures will get so tremendous that the social contract will just come apart.
Pete Seeger
I don”t wanna be rich, just live good.
Patsy Cline
If I had been thinking business since I was 21, I’d be a rich man right now.

Willa Cather
The rich are never as possessed by their riches as the poor are by their poverty.
Mason Cooley
And it never failed that during the dry years the people forgot about the rich years, and during the wet years they lost all memory of the dry years. It was always that way.
John Steinbeck
I think pornography is a very rich medium, and I’ve studied it closely and learned quite a lot as a writer from it.
Dennis Cooper
If someone says: “I don’t want to have a cochlear implant, because I want my child to grow up with a rich sense of deaf culture,” he must acknowledge that the deaf culture that exists in the world today has a different scale than the deaf culture that’s likely to exist in the world 50 years from now.
Andrew Solomon
Self-discipline is the No. 1 delineating factor between the rich, the middle class and the poor.
Robert Kiyosaki
No, I’m not rich. I had a tax problem in this country, curiously enough, and my accountant said the British government was patently wrong in taxing me, and they were, but we couldn’t persuade them and it cost me everything I had.
Donald Sutherland
Our tendency is to be interested in something that is growing in the garden, not in the bare soil itself. But if you want to have a good harvest, the most important thing is to make the soil rich and cultivate it well.
Shunryu Suzuki
A rich dress adds but little to the beauty of a person. It may possibly create a deference, but that is rather an enemy to love.
William Shenstone
I don’t know what the explosion did, but it damaged something deep and irreparable. Never mind. If I get home, I’ll be so stinking rich, I’ll be able to pay someone to do my hearing.
Suzanne Collins
The very rich and the very social are, often, the very stuffy.
Edna Ferber
The people I want are very famous and very rich, and all I can offer them is a bit of exposure on TV and a bit of cash, so it’s a miracle we get any guests at all. But we have been very lucky.
Graham Norton
My rich dad taught me to focus on passive income and spend my time acquiring the assets that provide passive or long term residual income…passive income from capital gains, dividends, residual income from business, rental income from real estate, and royalties.
Robert Kiyosaki
If you want to get rich from writing, write the sort of thing that’s read by persons who move their lips when they’re reading to themselves.
Don Marquis
To live like a poor man is only fun when you are rich.
Peter Ustinov
My dad was an architect, and he wasn’t a rich guy, but in our little world in Philadelphia he was famous. He loved to see his picture in the paper. I wanted to be more famous than him.
Kevin Bacon
We start out a million years ago in a small community on some grassy plain; we hunt animals, have children, and develop a rich social, sexual, and intellectual life, but we know almost nothing about our surroundings.
Carl Sagan
It is okay to cut your wife’s throat as long as you are rich, famous—and black.
Jeff Cooper
Never stop hoping for all of the righteous desires of your heart. But don’t close your eyes and hearts to the simple and elegant beauties of each day’s ordinary moments that make up a rich, well-lived life
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
I don’t think you’re happier if you’re thin or beautiful or rich or married. You have to make your own happiness. My heroines do not become beautiful elegant swans, they become confident ducks and get on with life.
Maeve Binchy
He deserves nothing. Nothing but our scorn. (Father) Then I am rich indeed from the abundance of that which you’ve shown me. (Acheron)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
There are a lot of rich people in the world. There are very few people who have the privilege of getting to invent things that billions of people use.
David Karp
Being is good, but getting rich is better…. If the gods had only the riches of men’s adoration, they would be as poor as poor Caligula.
Albert Camus
My visit this autumn is an opportunity to continue that rich tradition of visits between Canterbury and Rome.
Rowan Williams
God only, who made us rich, can make us poor.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Mausoleum, n: the final and funniest folly of the rich.
Ambrose Bierce
A sister is the cure for swollen heads and ego trips. One may a star, a Chief Executive-famous and rich and beautiful. But one’s sister has the family photo album. And a long, long memory. And a tendency to wink at one on Top Occasions.
Pam Brown
Getting rich begins with the right mindset, the right words and the right plan.
Robert Kiyosaki
No fantasy, however rich, no technique, however masterly, no penetration into the psychology of the opponent, however deep, can make a chess game a work of art, if these qualities do not lead to the main goal – the search for truth.
Vasily Smyslov
A man of good will with a little effort and belief in his own powers can enjoy a deep, tranquil, rich life – provided he go his own way…. To live one’s own life is still the best way of life, always was and always will be.
Henry Miller
A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, big or small, young or old. He doesn’t care if you’re not smart, not popular, not a good joke-teller, not the best athlete, nor the best-looking person. To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest, the nicest human being who was ever born. You are his friend and protector.
Louis Sabin
I grew up in uptown Jamaica; I went to a rich school. I was raised by my mother and my stepfather; they made sure education came before anything. I had a good childhood, grew up spending time with my bigger brothers and sisters. My people are good people. I was exposed to a lot of different kinds of people and culture.
Damian Marley
I have always looked upon decay as being just as wonderful and rich an expression of life as growth.
Henry Miller
I had never been to Texas. Id been through Texas, but Im so glad to be back in a place thats not L.A. or New York. To talk about Dallas, to talk about there being sweet tea on the catering table, its rich and saturated in American-ness.
Kelli Giddish
There are three wants which never can be satisfied: that of the rich, who wants something more; that of the sick, who wants something different; and that of the traveler, who says anywhere but here.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Never give up searching for the job that you’re passionate about. Try to find the job you’d have if you were independently rich. Forget about the pay. When you’re associating with the people that you love, doing what you love, it doesn’t get any better than that.
Warren Buffett
The ethos and critique are of poetry, which becomes a rich dark with a phosphorescence of lyric as witness.
Mei-mei Berssenbrugge
I’d definitely rather be rich than famous.
Radha Mitchell
Everyone chooses one of two roads in life – the old and the young, the rich and the poor, men and women alike. One is the broad, well-traveled road to mediocrity, the other road to greatness and meaning.
Stephen Covey
Senator John Kerry released his plan today to eliminate the deficit. He said all we have to do is find a really rich country like Switzerland and marry it.
Jay Leno
In the meantime the big corporations are fleeing America for tax havens and places like Ireland, Luxembourg and the Grand Cayman Islands; the rich are finding more tax loopholes to expect; so when are the people going to basically roll up their sleeves and say, we’ve had enough, we’re going to recapture Congress.
Ralph Nader
I wanted to be a rich, famous rock-and-roll star in that order.
Dee Snider
If you want to be rich watch what rich people do everyday and do it. And watch what poor people do and don’t do it.
Les Brown
For me, French is so rich and so sacred that learning it is like learning a foreign language.
Fabrice Luchini
My family is delighted every time I cook maitake. Our taste buds awaken in anticipation of its rich, deep and nuanced flavors.
Paul Stamets
If honesty did not exist, we ought to invent it as the best means of getting rich.
Honore Gabriel Riqueti, comte de Mirabeau
I don’t give any gifts to the rich.
Nicolas Sarkozy
There is a movement in club football, which I don’t necessarily consider a prime example of solidarity, because it leads us to conclude the rich are getting richer and they are using everything in the market to create an exodus from Africa.
Sepp Blatter
We are giving away the country so a few very rich people can get richer.
Virgil Goode
The poor have to labour in the face of the majestic equality of the law, which forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.
Anatole France
Think rich, look poor.
Andy Warhol
I don’t want you to apologize for being rich; I want you to acknowledge that in America, we all should have to pay our fair share.
Stephen King
The rich fop Francis of Assisi was bored all his life-until he fell in love with Christ and gave all his stuff away and became the troubadour of Lady Poverty.
Peter Kreeft
Of course, to have money is just great because you can do what you think is important to you. I always was a rich person because money’s not related to happiness.
Paulo Coelho
If you want to know how rich you really are, find out what would be left of you tomorrow if you should lose every dollar you own tonight.
William J. H. Boetcker
I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever.’ No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own – nobody.
Elizabeth Warren
We’re teaching young girls that this is what they should be focusing on: rich and famous girls who are rich and famous for nothing.
Ellen Pompeo
One is fruitful only at the cost of being rich in contradictions.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Rich people never go to war. You ask a college kid to go to war, and he’s like, ‘Umm, I’m taking this sociology class, and I think war is, like, really stupid, and my roommate’s, like, half Afghani, so it’s going to cause some static.’
Bill Burr
If a man is wise, he gets rich an’ if he gets rich, he gets foolish, or his wife does. That’s what keeps the money movin’ around.
Finley Peter Dunne
I would have rather had a dad with change jingling in his pocket; one who would have spent the last forty minutes of the world raking leaves for his kids to jump in, so that they perished in one loud, bright instant, giggles still bubbling up from their bellies, never suspecting a thing. Yeah, well. Tough luck, rich boy.
S.A. Bodeen
Sometimes those who bloom too early fade fast. Michael Kors struggled for years – and endured bankruptcy – before he became all rich and famous and fabulous.
Robin Givhan
Do not be fooled into believing that because a man is rich he is necessarily smart. There is ample proof to the contrary.
Julius Rosenwald
This country has been strip-mined by rich and powerful interests. If you dont like what they’re doing, don’t just sit there. Vote them out.
Ralph Nader
Rich women are not too put upon by their children. You don’t have to do all the things for a child that those women who had to stay at home did. My Ann had a French governess who took care of her until she was twelve years old and went off to boarding school.
Clare Boothe Luce
Our public life withers when only the most extreme voices get attention. Most of all, democracy breaks down when the average person feels their voice doesn’t matter; that the system is rigged in favor of the rich or the powerful or some narrow interest.
Barack Obama
The power of Haitian heritage and the strength of the Haitian people is tremendous. And Haiti holds a unique and rich role in the history of African Americans.
Cheryl Mills
He is only rich who owns the day. There is no king, rich man, fairy, or demon who possesses such power as that.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We were not as rich as the Rockefellers or Mellons, but we were rich enough to know how rich they were.
Louis Auchincloss
Rich Folkers is throwing ’em up in the bullpen.
Jerry Coleman
I think the rich are too rich and the poor are too poor. I don’t think the black people are going to rise at all; I think most of them are going to die.
Nina Simone
Camiguin, Romblon and Camarines Norte got out of the list of poorest provinces in 2003. With tourism, these provinces can become rich.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
A poore mans Cow dies a rich mans child.
George Herbert
And the art was in every corner and wall… a Mural of the Century of Progress in Colombia South America is rich in detail, painted by a student of the Fine Arts Academy of Chicago named Santiago Martinez; a name to remember.
Santiago Martinez Delgado
Many years before I had left a beautiful country and a rich nation and I returned to that country six years later to find it fundamentally changed and in a state of upheaval, and in great spiritual and material need.
Fritz Sauckel
Young kids out here see what’s on TV and feel like they can start rapping. They think rappers are rich and really have their own jets and Bentleys, but in lot of cases that stuff is rented.
Here are white men poised to run big marijuana businesses, dreaming of cashing in big—big money, big businesses selling weed—after 40 years of impoverished black kids getting prison time for selling weed, and their families and futures destroyed. Now, white men are planning to get rich doing precisely the same thing?
Do not give, as many rich men do, like a hen that lays her eggs …and then cackles.
Henry Ward Beecher
Americans have an extraordinary love-hate relationship with the rich culture they’ve created. They buy, watch and read it even as they ban, block and condemn it.
Jon Katz
‘Above The Thunder’ is passionate, wise, and piercingly beautiful. Readers drawn to books with rich, memorable characters and contemporary stories will find this remarkable debut novel not only irresistible but impossible to put down.
Tony Ardizzone
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Dwight L. Moody
We like to read about rich people in the newspapers; the papers know it, and they do their best to keep this appetite liberally fed.
Mark Twain
I think mental illness or madness can be an escape also. People don’t develop a mental illness because they are in the happiest of situations, usually. One doctor observed that it was rare when people were rich to become schizophrenic. If they were poor or didn’t have too much money, then it was more likely.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
It is the pure arrogance of the newly rich and the newly powerful to think content is easy.
John Landgraf
It is the genius of our Constitution that under its shelter of enduring institutions and rooted principles there is ample room for the rich fertility of American political invention.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Iran is a rich country, and if the people of this country are poor, it’s because of the wrong policies of the government.
Shirin Ebadi
Poverty can lead to tyranny. Capitolism creates freedom. If the poor had a better image of the rich they could be just like them.
Josh Bernstein
What did I hope for, what did I expect, what rich future did I foresee, when the phantom of my first love, rising up for an instant, barely called forth one sigh, one mournful sentiment?
Ivan Turgenev
You can never be too rich or too thin.
Wallis Simpson
Many speak the truth when they say that they despise riches, but they mean the riches possessed by others.
Charles Caleb Colton
Morals are a luxury of the rich.
George Bernard Shaw
The influential man is the successful man, whether he be rich or poor.
Orison Swett Marden
For those that love the world serve it in action, Grow rich, popular, and full of influence; And should they paint or write still is it action, The struggle of the fly in marmalade.
William Butler Yeats
Life gives to all the choice. You can satisfy yourself with mediocrity if you wish. You can be common, ordinary, dull, colorless, or yyou can channel your life so that it will be clean, vibrant, useful, progressive, colorful, and rich.
Spencer W. Kimball
When you have a toothache, you think that not having a toothache will make you very happy. But when you don’t have a toothache, often you are still not happy. If you practice awareness, you suddenly become very rich, very very happy.
Nhat Hanh
Women in London are like the rich silks; they are out of fashion a great while before they wear out.
Aphra Behn
I consider a good reputation is a great part of the human happiness. Some people, if they are very, very rich can permit themselves certain negligence to their reputations.
Aristotle Onassis
There are even some radical leftists who look at it as that but then go further and say, “Because we have been so exclusionary and because it’s been so unfair that America has been so rich, it’s so unfair that America has been this one place in the world, it’s not because of us, and we deserve to pay a price.”
Rush Limbaugh
The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects. We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it.
Charles Baudelaire
Marriage has been a very rich and beautiful development of my life. Month by month as we live together we seem to come nearer to each other; and to feel a more complete fellowship. I do not feel that it in any way fetters or narrows my world: – it seems rather to enlarge it.
Olive Schreiner
If you want to be rich, think of the savings and get them.
Benjamin Franklin
The true way to gain much, is never to desire to gain too much. He is not rich that possesses much, but he that covets no more; and he is not poor that enjoys little, but he that wants too much.
Francis Beaumont
And of course most non-Catholics imagine that the Church is immensely rich, and that all Catholic institutions make money hand over fist, and that all the money is stored away somewhere to buy gold and silver dishes for the Pope and cigars for the College of Cardinals.
Thomas Merton
The rich son waits for his father to die, the poor just drink and cry.
Lou Reed
Even the rich aren’t often happy. Their wealth is at best only a temporary distraction. It doesn’t make them immune to emotional and mental suffering, or to disease and death. They too must deal with loneliness, the deaths of loved ones and the frustrations and boredom of old age.
Frederick Lenz
The circulating medium being issued only by those who labor, they would suddenly become invested with all the wealth and all the power; and those who did not labor, be they ever so rich now, would as suddenly become poor and powerless.
Josiah Warren
I didn’t want kids to think that to be happy, they had to be famous or rich or live in the big city.
Dan Savage
We must always embrace individual liberty and enforce the constitutional rights of all Americans-rich and poor, immigrant and native, black and white.
Rand Paul
The Web is fascinating and transformative, but it’s an easy, flashy, get-rich-quick option to the hard graft of proper industry.
James Dyson
Environmentalism, I’d always been told, was just rich white people.
Bill McKibben
No reform is possible unless some of the educated and the rich voluntarily accept the status of the poor, travel third, refuse to enjoy the amenities denied to the poor and, instead of taking avoidable hardships, discourtesies and injustice as a matter of course, fight for their removal.
Mahatma Gandhi
Illiteracy at the poverty level (mainly a matter of bad grammar) does not alarm me nearly as much as the illiteracy of the well-to-do.
Mary McCarthy
The United States and rich countries cannot change Africa from within. It has to impose reform on Africa; it has to come from within.
George W. Bush
Republicans are no longer allowed to say that people are rich. You have to refer to them as “job creator.” You can’t even use the word rich. You have to say, “This chocolate cake is so moist and job creator.”
Jon Stewart
It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.
Sarah Bernhardt
You know what they say – sleep is the mother’s drug of choice, but like heroin, only the very rich and the very poor can afford it.
Elissa Schappell
I think in any organisation it’s right to set out what you stand for, what you’re fighting for and bring that together in one document so that people can see that the modern compassionate Conservative Party is in it for everybody – not just the rich
David Cameron
When a broken tank is filled with water, It certainly will leak on every side. Weak men who grow rich Seldom leave an inheritance.
Sakya Pandita
Although there may be nothing new under the sun, what is old is new to us and so rich and astonishing that we never tire of it. If we do tire of it, if we lose our curiosity, we have lost something of infinite value, because to a high degree it is curiosity that gives meaning and savour to life.
Robertson Davies
I am rich from the bequests other gifted people have seen fit to leave to me.
Mercedes McCambridge
Like water spilt upon the ground–alas, Our little lives flow swiftly on and pass; Yet may they bring rich harvests and green grass!
Henry Van Dyke
That’s prayer to let God’s Word speak deep within you and tell you, “You are my beloved. You don’t have to take an eye for an eye. No, no you’re too rich for that.”
Henri Nouwen
The rich have no more of the kingdom of heaven than they have purchased of the poor by their alms.
John Donne
Loneliness is the universal problem of rich people.
Joan Collins
I was thinking of the Four Seasons, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and when I was thinking “Uptown Girl!” I was trying to sing like Frankie Valli. They had a song called “Ragdoll,” which was about a poor girl and a rich guy. So I just flipped it around and made it about a rich girl and a poor guy.
Billy Joel
There comes a time when the bubble of ego is popped and you can’t get the ground back for an extended period of time. Those times, when you absolutely cannot get it back together, are the most rich and powerful times in our lives.
Pema Chodron
No man is rich who is unsatisfied, but who wants nothing possess his heart’s desire.
Richard P. Feynman
I don’t want to remember 2005 as a year that the government heaped unnecessary burdens upon American families. Stealing from the poor and middle class and giving to the rich, while increasing the deficit, is hardly responsible.
Marty Meehan
The rich man never really gives anything, he only distributes part of the surplus. It is the person of moderate means who really gives.
George Eastman
I think family movies have gotten so rich in this country.
Rachel Griffiths
I think publishing’s strength is also its weakness. It’s got such a rich and celebrated history as an industry. For the most part, publishing people are incredibly creative, business is done based on the strength of relationships, and the product being peddled is books.
Jennifer Gilmore
It might be a little rough on some people for a while, but I think it’s the only way to deal with drugs. Look at Prohibition: all it did was make a lot of criminals rich. Should be legalized for a matter of sanity.
Hunter S. Thompson
No matter how rich and prosperous, a nation without independence, cannot be subject to any behaviour before the humanity, at a higher level than serving.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Capitalism makes people unequally rich. Communism makes people equally poor.
Thomas Friedman
In the forties [1940s] in Washington it was still unusual for a rich and socially well-connected married woman to work. If she did, her husband was assumed by his peers to be unable to support a household on his own and somehow to be inadequate.
David Brinkley
A dirty mind is a rich inner resource.
Mason Cooley
Success does not mean happiness. Check out any celebrity magazine to look for examples to disabuse you of thinking that being beautiful, successful or rich will make you happy.
Shawn Achor
Rich countries have ‘kicked away the ladder’ by forcing free-market, free-trade policies on poor countries. Already established countries do not want more competitors emerging through the nationalistic policies they themselves successfully used in the past.
Ha-Joon Chang
I found a new me. When I first came over to America, it was like, ‘How can I be rich? How can I build my movie career? How can I become the most muscular man?’ It was all about me, and then there was this turn, and I found it was really great to do this.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Voters inclined to loathe and fear elite Ivy League schools rarely make fine distinctions between Yale and Harvard. All they know is that both are full of rich, fancy, stuck-up and possibly dangerous intellectuals who never sit down to supper in their undershirt no matter how hot the weather gets.
Russell Baker
An unlucky rich man is more capable of satisfying his desires and of riding out disaster when it strikes, but a lucky man is better off than him…He is the one who deserves to be described as happy. But until he is dead, you had better refrain from calling him happy, and just call him fortunate.
A rich and varied menu is for people who have no work to do.
Roald Amundsen
Every girl would like to marry a rich husband. I did twice. But what divides girls into two groups is this question – do you first think of money and then love, or vice versa?
Hedy Lamarr
Democracy is a small hard core of common agreement, surrounded by a rich variety of individual differences.
James Bryant Conant
It would be nice to say the rich people, the fancy people, all behaved like bastards and the poor slobs all came through like heroes. But as a matter of fact, sometimes the poor slobs behave like slobs and the great, noble, privileged characters come off very well, indeed.
Walter Lord
He mocks the people who proposes that the government shall protect the rich and that they in turn will care for the laboring poor.
Grover Cleveland
Education becomes most rich and alive when it confronts the reality of moral conflict in the world.
Howard Zinn
If you are unwilling to fail, sometimes publicly and even catastrophically, you will never be rich.
Felix Dennis
You know, the best-laid plans of mice and men… I like playing bad guys, and I don’t have a problem doing that. They’re interesting characters, and there’s as many different kinds of bad guys as there are good guys – they’re rich, they’re strong, they’re powerful, and so that’s fine with me.
Tobin Bell
I don’t want to be rich, I just want to be loved.
Marilyn Monroe
In addition to all its rich offerings to the body and its five senses, gardening engages the mind.
Allen Lacy
If the poor, for example, because they are more in number, divide among themselves the property of the rich,- is not this unjust? . . this law of confiscation clearly cannot be just.
While few judges or prosecutors would be afraid to exercise their perfectly legitimate discretion in favour of an ordinary man, not to mention a minority group member, most would be terrified to exercise the same discretion for someone politically, financially or socially powerful.
Conrad Black
When I had no money, and a great book came out, I couldn’t get it. I had to wait. I love the idea that I have hardcover books here and at home that I haven’t read yet. That’s how I view that I’m rich. I have hardcover books I may never read.
Sherman Alexie
When I started skating, it was such a small community. You didn’t aspire to be rich or famous or make a career out of it because that wasn’t something anyone had done yet.
Tony Hawk
Everybody gets everything handed to them. The rich inherit it. I don’t mean just inheritance of money. I mean what people take for granted among the middle and upper classes, which is nepotism, the old-boy network.
Toni Morrison
In India, it’s the rich who have problems with obesity. And the poor are darker-skinned because they work outside and often work without their tops on so you can see their ribs.
Aravind Adiga
In fact that is the struggle that most Americans – As rich as this country is, most Americans are very limited in their interaction with the world, unless the world comes to us in a very shocking way.
Edwidge Danticat
Star Wars’ is so rich and it seems crazy that everyone’s, like, a white male guy. That’s due to the 1970s and the fact that it was shot in Britain, but I was very lucky: I’m British, I grew up in England, and I got to see myself represented in a film.
Gareth Edwards
I was fascinated by the [operation] of a U-boat … where every single man was an indispensable part of the whole. Every submariner, I am sure, has experienced in his heart [the joy of] the task entrusted to him [and] felt as rich as a king.
Karl Donitz
We are rich only through what we give.
Sophie Swetchine
Think of yourself as a role model for others-showing that you can be kind, generous, loving, and rich!
T. Harv Eker
If you want poor people to work you restore their incentive by giving them less, such as by cutting social services. If you want rich people to work you restore their incentive by giving them more, such as by cutting taxes.
Jim Stanford
In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.
Charlie Chaplin
I felt like a rich vagabond who had passed through the world paving my way with gold fairy dust, then realizing too late that the path disintegrated as soon as I passed over it.
Amy Tan
You pray for good health and a body that will be strong in old age. Good-but your rich foods block the gods’ answer and tie Jupiter’s hands.
Aulus Persius Flaccus
Riches are but a means, or instrument; and the virtue of an instrument lies in its use.
Benjamin Whichcote
The rich is the one that rules over those of little means, and the borrower is servant to the man doing the lending.
Since we’re all rich with bitcoins … we ought to put some of this unearned wealth to good use.
Hal Finney
