A sumptuous dwelling the rich man hath. And dainty is his repast; but remember that luxury's prodigal hand keeps the furnace of toil in blast.

It is better to live rich, than to die rich.
One cause, which is not always observed, of the insufficiency of riches, is that they very seldom make their owner rich.
It is wonderful to think how men of very large estates not only spend their yearly income, but are often actually in want of money. It is clear, they have not value for what they spend.
The bottom line is in heaven.
Riches are chiefly good because they give us time.
He who knows he has enough is rich.
Among all the emotions, the rich have the least talent for love. It is possible to love one's dog, dress or duck-shooting hat, but a human being presents a more difficult problem. The rich might wish to experience feelings of affection, but it is almost impossible to chip away the enamel of their narcissism. They take up all the space in all the mirrors in the house. Their children, who represent the most present and therefore the most annoying claim on their attention, usually receive the brunt of their irritation.
A certain kind of rich man afflicted with the symptoms of moral dandyism sooner or later comes to the conclusion that it isn't enough merely to make money. He feels obliged to hold views, to espouse causes and elect Presidents, to explain to a trembling world how and why the world went wrong. The spectacle is nearly always comic.
He must have killed a lot of men to have made so much money.

The trouble is that rich people, well-to-do people, very often don't really know who the poor are; and that is why we can forgive them, for knowledge can only lead to love, and love to service. And so, if they are not touched by them, it's because they do not know them.
Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.
No one has ever said it, but how painfully true it is that the poor have us always with them.
I don't mind their having a lot of money, and I don't care how they employ it, but I do think that they damn well ought to admit they enjoy it.
For just as poets love their own works, and fathers their own children, in the same way those who have created a fortune value their money, not merely for its uses, like other persons, but because it is their own production. This makes them moreover disagreeable companions, because they will praise nothing but riches.
The acquisition of riches has been to many not an end to their miseries, but a change in them: The fault is not in the riches, but the disposition.
O, what a world of vile ill-favored faults, looks handsome in three hundred pounds a year!
About the only difference between the poor and the rich, is this, the poor suffer misery, while the rich have to enjoy it.
With the great part of rich people, the chief employment of riches consists in the parade of riches.
The wretchedness of being rich is that you live with rich people. To suppose, as we all suppose, that we could be rich and not behave as the rich behave, is like supposing that we could drink all day and stay sober.
Riches are a stronghold in the imagination of a rich man.
Being rich is having money; being wealthy is having time.
If Heaven had looked upon riches to be a valuable thing, it would not have given them to such a scoundrel.
The rich man is always sold to the institution which makes him rich. Absolutely speaking, the more money, the less virtue.
If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy.
The rich aren't like us; they pay less taxes.
To value riches is not to be covetous. They are the gift of God, and, like every gift of his, good in themselves, and capable of a good use. But to overvalue riches, to give them a place in the heart which God did not design them to fill, this is covetous
He rides in the row at ten o clock in the morning, goes to the Opera three times a week, changes his clothes at least five times a day, and dines out every night of the season. You don't call that leading an idle life, do you?
The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.
