A Quote by unknown on dance, fame, gold, justice, laughter, love, modesty, pride, service, thought, and wealth

I built a ship-a great large ship, And Pride stood at the helm And steered for Fame, that wondrous land, And Wealth-bright, golden realm! And Pride was captain, mate, and crew, And launched my ship with much ado. "Now go, my ship, my great, great ship, And laugh the winds to scorn." And lo, my ship came back to me All broken, bent. and torn! I built a ship, a lovely ship, With modern wings of white, And thought not of bright Wealth or Fame, But Service rose in sight. Love was my captain, mate, and crew And launched my ship without ado. "Now go, my ship, my lowly ship, Thy modest wings unfold." And lo, my ship came dancing back Just weighted down with gold!

A Quote by unknown on beginning, character, gold, honesty, justice, play, time, and wealth

Man's measurement A man's no bigger than the way he treats his fellow man! This standard has his measure been since time itself began. He's measured not by tithes or cruet, high sounding though they be; Nor by the gold that's put aside; nor by his sanctity. He's measured not by social rank, when character's the test; Nor by his earthly pomp and show, displaying wealth possessed. He's measured by his justice, right, his fairness at his play, His squareness in all dealings made, his honest upright way. These are his measures, ever near to serve him when they can; For man's no bigger than the way he treats his fellow man!

A Quote by unknown on boasts, death, health, and wealth

We squander health In search of wealth; We scheme and toil, and save, Then squander wealth In search of health; And all we get's the grave; We live and boast of what we own; We die . . . and only get a stone.

Every man of discernment, when walking upon the earth, feeleth indeed abashed, inasmuch as he is fully aware that the thing which is the source of his prosperity, his wealth, his might, his exaltation, his advancement and power is, as ordained by God, the very earth which is trodden beneath the feet of all men.

Wealth to us is not mere material for vainglory but an opportunity for achievement; and poverty we think it no disgrace to acknowledge but a real degredation to make no effort to overcome.

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on birth, children, christ, god, jesus, power, sons, wealth, and weapons

With the birth of the Babe in Bethlehem, there emerged a great endowment, a power stronger than weapons, a wealth more lasting than the coins of Caesar. This child was to be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the promised Messiah - even Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
