wealth

A Quote by James Allen on anxiety, circumstances, failure, heart, improvement, life, men, preparation, sacrifice, and wealth

Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound. The man who does not shrink from self-crucifixion can never fail to accomplish the object upon which his heart is set. This is true of earthly as of heavenly things. Even the man whose object is to acquire wealth must be prepared to make great personal sacrifices before he can accomplish his object; and how much more so he who would realize a strong and well-poised life.

James Allen (1864 - 1912)

A Quote by Jacob H. Schiff on complaints, fortune, justice, and wealth

The surplus wealth we have gained to some extent at least belongs to our fellow beings; we are only the temporary custodians of our fortunes, and let us be careful that no just complaint can be made against our stewardship.

A Quote by J. Hawes on action, birth, character, good, honor, parenthood, principles, reward, talent, virtue, and wealth

A good character is, in all cases, the fruit of personal exertion. It is not inherited from parents; it is not created by external advantages; it is no necessary appendage of birth, wealth, talents, or station; but it is the result of one's own endeavors-the fruit and reward of good principles manifested in a course of virtuous and honorable action.

A Quote by Ahmad Ibn `Ata'Allah on children, food, god, losing, pleasure, and wealth

He whose wealth or children distract him from remembering God is lost; but the one who remembers God experiences delights sweeter than the pleasure of food and drink.

A Quote by Herbert Simon on information, needs, poverty, and wealth

What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence, a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.

A Quote by Henry George on body, honesty, knowledge, life, meaning, mind, wealth, and words

He who by an exertion of mind or body, adds to the aggregate of enjoyable wealth, increases the sum of human knowledge, or gives to human life higher elevation or greater fullness - he is, in the larger meaning of the words, a " producer," a " working man," a " laborer," and is honestly earning honest wages.
