“The world is awarding its richest prizes to the thinkers.
Matter is powerless, passive, inert. Mind is force, energy, power.
Mind shapes and controls matter.
Every form which matter takes
is but the expression of some pre-existing thought.”
~ Charles F. Haanel,
Author, Philosopher & Businessman
“The only way to get love is to be lovable.
It’s very irritating if you have a lot of money.
You’d like to think you could write a check:
‘I’ll buy a million dollars’ worth of love.’
But it doesn’t work that way.
The more you give love away, the more you get.”
~ Warren Edward Buffett,
Business Magnate, Investor, Philanthropist &
Founder – Buffett Foundation
“You know, I’m blessed. ‘Blessed’ is a better way of saying ‘rich.'”
~ Roseanne Cherrie Barr,
Actress, Comedian, Writer, Author, Producer, Director & Politician

“My claim to fame will not be that I inherited my father’s company and bled it.
My claim to fame will be that I inherited my father’s entrepreneurship abilities and I built many companies.
Not only did I build them, but I trained and continue to train others to do the same thing.
I work with partners to ensure that they experience the kind of success that I am having.
I don’t know how a human being can enjoy himself any more than I am.”

& Partner, Rainforest Films

“If you don’t have integrity, you have nothing.
You can’t buy it. You can have all the money in the world,
but if you are not a moral and ethical person,
you really have nothing.”
~ Henry Kravis,

“I made a commitment to completely cut out drinking
and anything that might hamper me from getting my mind and body together.

“Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner. The asset I most value, aside from health, is interesting, diverse, and long-standing friends.”
~ Warren Edward Buffett,
Business Magnate, Investor, Philanthropist & Founder of the Buffett Foundation
“One of the blessings of being rich is the blessing to be charitable.”
“It’s silly to have as one’s sole object in life
(to be) just making money, accumulating wealth.
I work because I enjoy what I’m doing,
and the fact that I make money at it– big money–is a fine-and-dandy side fact.
Money gives me just one big thing that’s really important,
and that’s the freedom of not having to worry about money.
I’m concerned about values–moral, ethical, human values–my own,
other people’s, the country’s, the world’s values.
Having money now gives me the freedom to worry(focus on)
about the things that really matter.”
