Money is human happiness in the abstract: he, then, who is no longer capable of enjoying human happiness in the concrete, devotes his heart entirely to money. - Arthur Schopenhauer (Religion: A Dialogue and Other Essays Quotes)

Money is human happiness in the abstract: he, then, who is no longer capable of enjoying human happiness in the concrete, devotes his heart entirely to money.[Das Geld ist die menschliche Glückseligkeit in abstracto; daher, wer nicht mehr fähig ist, sie in concreto zu genießen, sein ganzes Herz an dasselbe hängt.]
