This planet has, or rather had, a problem, which was this: Most of the people living on it were
unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but

unhappy.
Douglas Adams

instance, or war.

bell of an approaching looter.

appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintance, but not friends; servants, but not loyalty;
days of joy, but not peace or happiness.
Henrik Ibsen

Any fool knows that you don't need money to get enjoyment out of life.
Thomas Merton

Our inflation, our public enemy number one, will, unless whipped, destroy our country, our
homes, our liberties, our property and finally our national pride as surely as will any
well-armed wartime energy.
Gerald R. Ford

Don't stay in bed, unless you can make money in bed.
George Burns

In my Bible it doesn't say that money is the root of all evil, but the "love of" money. I believe
that to be true and I believe the exact same to be true about possessions.
Conrad Hilton

When beggars and shoeshine boys, barbers and beauticians can tell you how to get rich it is
time to remind yourself that there is no more dangerous illusion than the belief that one can
get something for nothing.

effort of understanding that they are free.

Tim Ferriss

Money: There's nothing in the world so demoralizing as money.
Sophocles

Money can't buy you friends but you get a better class of enemy.
Spike Milligan

Moneymaking is not a serious business; it's a game. At first it may seem that it's a game
that you play with forces outside yourself - the economies of the marketplace, so to speak.
But as you proceed, you discover that it's actually a game you play with yourself!
Stuart Wilde
