A Quote by Doris Lessing on earth, garden, water, and wealth

The smell of manure, of sun on foliage, of evaporating water, rose to my head; two steps farther, and I could look down into the vegetable garden enclosed within its tall pale of reeds - rich chocolate earth studded emerald green, frothed with the white of cauliflowers, jeweled with the purple globes of eggplant and the scarlet wealth of tomatoes.

Doris Lessing (1919 -)

A Quote by David Starr Jordan on action, chance, charity, effort, evil, good, happiness, laws, life, energy, losing, misery, power, success, and wealth

The physiological law of Transfer of Energy is the basis of human success and happiness. There is no action without expenditure of energy, and if energy be not expended the power to generate it is lost. This law shows itself in a thousand ways in the life of man. The arm which is not used becomes palsied. The wealth which comes by chance weakens and destroys. The good which is unused turns to evil. The charity which asks no effort cannot relieve the misery she creates.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on death, failure, glory, honor, joy, life, possessions, power, shame, sorrow, success, wealth, and world

Goods and possessions are no gain in his eyes. He stays far from wealth and honor. Long life is no ground for joy, nor early death for sorrow. Success is not for him to be pround of, failure is no shame. Had he all the world's power he would not hold it as his own. If he conquered everything he would not take it to himself. His glory is in knowing that all things come together in One and life and death are equal.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on fame, heaven, losing, men, perception, power, thought, and wealth

Those that think that wealth is the proper thing for them cannot give up their revenues; those that seek distinction cannot give up the thought of fame; those that cleave to power cannot give the handle of it to others. While they hold their grasp of those things, they are afraid of losing them. When they let them go, they are grieved and they will not look at a single example, from which they might perceive the folly of their restless pursuits - such men are under the doom of heaven.

A Quote by Christopher Columbus on certainty, charity, death, god, honesty, honor, hope, justice, lies, purpose, sincerity, truth, wealth, and zeal

Weep for me, whoever has charity, truth and justice! I did not come on this voyage for gain, honor or wealth, that is certain; for then the hope of all such things was dead. I came to Your Highnesses with honest purpose and sincere zeal; and I do not lie. I humbly beseech Your Highnesses that, if it please God to remove me hence, you will help me to go to Rome and on other pilgrimages.

A Quote by Charles Francis Adams II on aim, corruption, crime, failure, life, success, virtue, and wealth

Failure seems to be regarded as the one unpardonable crime, success as the all-redeeming virtue, the acquisition of wealth as the single worthy aim of life. The hair-raising revelations of skullduggery and grand-scale thievery merely incite others to surpass by yet bolder outrages and more corrupt combinations.
