Big wealth will not give you satisfaction. The more your wealth grows, the more your requirements grow with it.
It is difficult if not impossible to find some reasonable limit for acquiring more and more property.
— Arthur Schopenhauer
You should acquire the kind of wealth which cannot be stolen from you by thieves, which people in power cannot take from you, which will stay with you even after your death, never diminishing and never disappearing. This wealth is your soul.
— Indian Proverb
There are two ways not to suffer from poverty. The first is to acquire more wealth. The second is to limit your requirements. The first is not always within our power, but the second is always in our power.
