A Quote by St.Clair on living, wealth, health, choices, awareness, appreciation, and economy

A Quote by Warren Buffett on wealth, charity, philanthropy, and society

Susie didn't get very excited when I told her we were going to get rich. She either didn't care or didn't believe me - probably both, in fact. But to the extent we did amass wealth, we were totally in sync about what to do with it - and that was to give it back to society.

In that, we agreed with Andrew Carnegie, who said that huge fortunes that flow in large part from society should in large part be returned to society. In my case, the ability to allocate capital would have had little utility unless I lived in a rich, populous country in which enormous quantities of marketable securities were traded and were sometimes ridiculously mispriced. And fortunately for me, that describes the U.S. in the second half of the last century.

Warren Buffett (1930 -)

A Quote by Thurgood Marshall on poverty, wealthy, poor, wealth, united states, u s, goal, inequality, gap between rich and poor, and human rights

"A child born to a black mother in a state like Mississippi . . . has the same rights as a white baby born to the wealthiest person in the United States. It's not true, but I challenge anyone to say it is not a goal worth working for."

Thurgood Marshall (1908 - 1993)

A Quote by Paul Graham on wealth, startups, and business

Startups are not magic. They don't change the laws of wealth creation. They just represent a point at the far end of the curve. There is no conservation law at work here: if you want to make a million dollars, you have to endure a million dollars' worth of pain.

A Quote by Paul Graham on money, wealth, and business

People think that what a business does is make money. But money is just the intermediate stage -- just a shorthand -- for whatever people want. What most business really do is make wealth. They do something people want.

A Quote by unknown on reality, life, awareness, wealth, power, and evolution

We've run into a cultural situation where we've confused the symbol with the physical reality, the money with the wealth, and the menu with the dinner....and we're starving on eating menus.
