Kent 2066 Most of the rich people I've known have been fairly miserable.

Advice 2091 Remember, that TIME is money...Remember, that CREDIT is money...Remember, that money is of the prolific, generating nature...Remember this saying, THE GOOD PAYER IS LORD OF ANOTHER MAN'S PURSE. He that is known to pay punctually and exactly to the time he promises, may at any time, and on any occasion, raise all the money his friends can spare...In short, the way to wealth, if you desire it, is as plain as the way to market.

Abraham Cowley (1618-1667) Imitations - Tenth Epistle of Horace 2102 Can wealth give happiness? Look round and see What gay distress! What splendid misery! Whatever fortunes lavishly can pour, The mind annihilates, and calls for more.

In life can love be bought with gold? Are friendship's pleasures to be sold? No - all that's worth a wish - a thought - Fair virtue gives, unbrib'd, unbought. Cease then on trash thy hopes to bind Let nobler views engage thy mind. Johnson (1709-1784) 2107 Ill fares the land To hastening ills a prey When wealth accumulates But men decay. Goldsmith (1728-1774) 2108 Trade it may help, society extend, But lures the Pirate, and corrupts the friend: It raises armies in a nation's aid, But bribes a senate, and the land's betray'd.
