Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
Buddha

In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.
Confucius

Be careful to leave your sons well instructed rather than rich, for the hopes of the instructed are better than the wealth of the ignorant.
Epictetus

Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.
Epictetus

We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.
Louis D. Brandeis

There is no wealth but life.
John Ruskin

Blood, Sweat & Tears
God Bless The Child
Songwriters: BILLIE HOLIDAY, ARTHUR HERZOG JR.

Them that's got shall get,
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible says,
And it still is news
Mama may have,
And papa may have
God bless the child that's got his own
Well that's got his own
And the strong seem to get more,
While the weak one's fade
Empty pockets don't,
Ever make the grade
''cause mama may have,
And papa may have
God bless the child that's got his own,
That's got his own
And when ya got money, ya got lots of friends,
Crowdin' 'round your door
When the money's gone,
And all your spendin' ends,
They won't be 'round anymore.
No, no, no
And rich relations may give you,
A crust of bread and such
You can help yourself,
But don't take to much
Mama may have, and papa may have
God bless the child that's got his own,
That's got his own
And when ya got money,
Ya got lots of friends,
They're crowdin' 'round your door
When the money's gone, and all your spendin' ends,
They won't be 'round anymore.
No, no,
And rich relations may give you,
A crust of bread and such
You can help yourself,
But don't take to much
Mama may have,
And papa may have
God bless the child who can,
Stand up and say"I got my own"
Ev'ry child's got to have his own,
Yeah

Right on the money all the quotes, and Billie Holiday is a treasure. Does anybody besides us oldtimers remember her and her songs? This made me pull my records.
