A Quote by William Grieder on rich, poor, control, and oppression

The rich nations of the world are acting like ancient usurers, lending money to the desperate poor on terms that cannot possibly be met and, thus, steadily acquiring more and more control over the lives and assets of the poor.

A Quote by William Stafford on talking, hearing, say, rich, things, dulls, reason, and world

The things you do not have to say make you rich.

Saying the things you do not have to say weakens your talk.

Hearing the things you do not have to hear dulls your hearing.

And the things you know before you hear them; these are you and the reason you are in the world.

William Stafford

A Quote by Eckart Tolle on rich, wealthy, transformation, life, gratitude, present moment, loving what is, being, and bejuled coaching

Being rich/wealthy is being in touch with the fullness of life. When you are open to the present moment, what comes in, is a gratitude for "what is". When you are aligned with the present moment, there is a peace that comes, so it is like you are experiencing life for the first time, when you become present. When you are in a state of gratitude for what is ... that is really what being wealthy means
