A Measure of Wealth

Compiled by Prof. Dr. Roger Haw

The following quotes illustrate that there are other values of equal importance to financial ones in building wealth...

"The real wealth of the world is in the resources of the ground we stand on, And in the resources of the human mind." --Norman Cousins

"Remember, what you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else, but what you are will be yours forever." --Henry van Dyke

"Wealth is not only what you have but it is also what you are." --Sterling W. Sill

"To have what we want is riches, but to be able to do without is power." --George MacDonald

"Not what you possess but what you do with what you have, determines your true worth." --Thomas Carlyl

"Who is rich? He who rejoices in his lot." --The Mishnah

"If you want to know how rich you really are, find out what would be left of you tomorrow if you should loose every penny you own tonight." --Wm . J. H. Boetcker

"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." --George Horace Lorimer

"Poverty has its duties as well as its rights." --Benjamin Disraeli

"It is not poverty that we praise, it is the man whom poverty cannot humble or bend." --Seneca

"The real measure of our wealth is how much we should be worth if we lost our money." --J. H. Jowett

"What greater ornament to a son than a father's glory, or to a father than a son's honorable conduct?" -- Sophocles

"The wealth of a nation cannot be stored in gold bars. It must remain in the spirit and attitude of the people; wholesome, hopeful, and reverent." --Douglas Meador

"All our possessions are as nothing compared to health, strength and a clear conscience." --Hosea Ballou

"No legacy is so rich as honesty." --William Shakespeare

"Money buys everything except love, personality, freedom, immortality, silence, peace." --Carl Sandburg
