The only question with wealth is, what do you do with it?

Although they posses enough, and more than enough still they yearn for more.
This country cannot afford to be materially rich and spiritually poor.
Without a rich heart, wealth is an ugly beggar.
A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.
Just think how happy you would be if you lost everything you have right now, and then got it back again.
The real secret of happiness is not what you have or what you receive; it's what you share
It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute... that gives meaning to our lives.
To whom much is given is much required. [Luke 12:48]
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is rare indeed that people give. Most people guard and keep; they suppose that it is they themselves and what they identify with themselves that they are guarding and keeping, whereas what they are actually guarding and keeping is their system of reality and what they assume themselves to be.
A different world cannot be built by indifferent people.
If humanity does not opt for integrity we are through completely. It is absolutely touch and go. Each one of us could make the difference.
Integrity is not a 90 percent thing, not a 95 percent thing; either you have it or you don't.
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. [Matthew 7:12]
I feel the capacity to care is the thing which gives life its deepest significance.
The individual is capable of both great compassion and great indifference. He has it within his means to nourish the former and outgrow the latter.
It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.
It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure you haven't lost the things that money can't buy.
Money may be the husk of many things, but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; days of joy, but not peace and happiness.
Money is the most important thing in the world. It represents health, strength, honor, generosity, and beauty as conspicuously as the want of it represents illness, weakness, disgrace, meanness, and ugliness.
Money is like manure. If you spread it around it does a lot of good. But if you pile it up in one place it stinks like hell.
Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.
Many people take no care of their money till they come nearly to the end of it, and others do just the same with their time.
It is true that money cannot buy happiness but it does make it possible for you to enjoy the best that the world has to offer.
The secret point of money and power in America is neither the things that money can buy nor power for power's sake... but absolute personal freedom, mobility, privacy. It is the instinct which drove America to the Pacific, all through the nineteenth century, the desire to be able to find a restaurant open in case you want a sandwich, to be a free agent, live by one's own rules.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
When money speaks the truth is silent.
Money is good, love is wealth.
The highest use of capital is not to make more money, but to make money do to more for the betterment of life.
When someone says it ain't the money, but its the principal of the thing, it's the money.
Time is more value than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
Young men wish; love, money and health. One day, they'll say; health, money and love.
Money isn't everything but it ranks right up there with oxygen.
A person's treatment of money is the most decisive test of his character, how they make it and how they spend it.
We pay for the mistakes of our ancestors, and it seems only fair that they should leave us the money to pay with.
Of course, money will do after its kind, and will steadily work to unspiritualize and unchurch the people to whom it was bequeathed.
If a person gets his attitude toward money straight, it will help straighten out almost every other area in his life.
Having more money does not insure happiness. People with ten million dollars are no happier than people with nine million dollars.
Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
The way by which you may get money almost without exception leads downward.
Money is like manure. You have to spread it around or it smells.
Money will come to you when you are doing the right thing.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Change does not necessarily assure progress, but progress implacably requires change. Education is essential to change, for education creates both new wants and the ability to satisfy them.
Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.
