A Quote by Rebecca Leech-Black on inspiration, positive thinking, acceptance, world, truth, understanding, wellness, wealth, heart, love, friendship, and cooperation

There is no limitation whatsoever, except those who mentally put themselves in a cage.  To realize that you are not confined is to understand who you really are, because there is plenty you can do and be.

Successful people make money. It's not that people who make money become successful, but that successful people attract money. They bring success to what they do.

A Quote by Jerry Porras on success, fame, wealth, and power

Builders insist that success may never come without a compelling personal commitment to something you care about and would be willing to do with or without counting on wealth, fame, power, or public acceptance as an outcome.

A Quote by Martin on wealth, rich, and money

No matter how much money one has, he will never consider himself rich. Rich is an utopic state, of unlimited wealth. It just so happens that wealth is finite, no matter how much you have. The more you have the more you have to loose.
That being said, real wealth is found inside and money is merely a tool to help you achieve your goals.

A Quote by Ven Payutto on wealth, buddhism, society, and generosity

According to the Buddhist teachings, wealth should be used for the purpose of helping others; it should support a life of good conduct and human development. According to this principle, when wealth arises for one person, the whole of society benefits, and although it belongs to one person, it is just as if it belonged to the whole community. A wealthy person who uses wealth in this manner is likened to a fertile field in which rice grows abundantly for the benefit of all. Such people generate great benefit for those around them. Without them, the wealth they create would not come to be, and neither would the benefit resulting from it. Guided by generosity, these people feel moved to represent the whole of society, and in return they gain the respect and trust of the community to use their wealth for beneficial purposes.

A Quote by Ven Payutto on economics, wealth, materialism, marxist, buddhism, possessions, and livelihood

For the individual, the objective of livelihood is to acquire the four necessities or requisites of human existence: food, clothing, shelter, and medicine. Again, the acquisition of these four requisites, be it in sufficient amount or in surplus, is not the ultimate objective. The four requisites are merely a foundation upon which efforts to realize higher objectives can be based.

Some people are content with few possessions and need only a minimum to devote their energies to mental and spiritual development. Others cannot live happily on such a small amount; they are more dependent on material goods. As long as their livelihood does not exploit others, however, Buddhism does not condemn their wealth. Moreover, people who are charitably inclined can use their wealth in ways that are beneficial for society as a whole.

In opposition to contemporary urban values, Buddhism does not measure a person's or nation's worth by material wealth. Nor does it go to the opposite extreme, as do Marxist thinkers, and condemn the accumulation of wealth as an evil in and of itself. Instead, Buddhism judges the ethical value of wealth by the ways in which it is obtained, and the uses to which it is put.

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on power, corruption, weakness, and wealth

It has often been said that power corrupts. But it is perhaps equally important to realize that weakness, too, corrupts.  Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many.  Hatred, malice, rudeness, intolerance, and suspicion are the faults of weakness. The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from their sense of inadequacy and impotence. We cannot win the weak by sharing our wealth with them. They feel our generosity as oppression.

Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)

A Quote by Joey Reiman on net worth, ideas, creativity, and wealth

"The people who ignite our imaginations in the next century will become the idea barons. Gray matter will be their real estate, and their net worth will be determined by what grows out of it."
