A few thoughts on money...
The highest use of capital is not to make more money,
but to make money do more for the betterment of life.
Henry Ford (1863-1947)
I'm proud to be paying taxes in the United States.
The only thing is – I could be just as proud for half the money.
The trick is to stop thinking it as 'your' money.
A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money
answereth all things.
(The Bible: Eccl 10:19 KJV)
People who work hard sleep well, whether they eat little or much. But the
rich are always worrying and seldom get a good night's sleep. There is
another serious problem I have seen in the world. Riches are sometimes
hoarded to the harm of the saver, or they are put into risky investments
that turn sour, and everything is lost. In the end, there is nothing left to
pass on to one's children. People who live only for wealth come to the
end of their lives as naked and empty--handed as on the day they were
born. (The Bible: Eccl 5:12-15 NLT)
Mo Money - Mo Problems
Hit song by Puff Daddy and Maze
Laugh of The Day:
A very successful lawyer parked his brand-new Lexus in front
of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he
got out, a truck passed too close and completely tore off the
door on the driver's side. The lawyer immediately grabbed his
cell phone, dialed 911, and within minutes a policeman pulled
up. Before the officer had a chance to ask any questions, the
lawyer started screaming hysterically. His Lexus, which he
had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined
and would never be the same, no matter what the body shop did
When the lawyer finally wound down from his ranting and
raving, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief.
"I can't believe how materialistic you lawyers are," he said.
"You are so focused on your possessions that you don't notice
"How can you say such a thing?" asked the lawyer.
The cop replied, "Don't you know that your left arm is
missing from the elbow down? It must have been torn off when
the truck hit you."
"Oh My God!" screamed the lawyer. "Where's my Rolex?"
