Money doesn’t care who owns it. A bum can win it in a lottery, or a dunce can inherit it, or someone can get it by holding up a bank. But power – that’s something different. To have power is to own the world.
Making money isn’t hard in itself. What’s hard is to earn it doing something worth devoting one’s life to.
It is pleasant for money to come into our purse; but when the time comes that we have to give it back, then the pangs of labour seize us.[L’argent dans une bourse entre agréablement; Mais le terme venu que nous devons le rendre, C’est lors que les douleurs commencent à nous prendre.]
