"Always remember, Mr. Robarts, that when you go into an attorney's office door, you will have to pay for it, first or last." ~ The Last Chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope He that wants money, means, and content, is without three good friends. ~ As You Like It by William Shakespeare Indeed, it may be laid down as a general principle, that the more extended the ancestry, the greater the amount of violence and vagabondism; for in ancient days those two amusements, combining a wholesome excitement with a promising means of repairing shattered fortunes, were at once the ennobling pursuit and the healthful recreation of the Quality of this land. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens "Here's the rule for bargains. 'Do other men, for they would do you.' That's the true business precept." ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens One of these flaws was, that having been long taught by his father to over-reach everybody he had imperceptibly acquired a love of over-reaching that venerable monitor himself. The other, that from his early habits of considering everything as a question of property, he had gradually come to look, with impatience, on his parent as a certain amount of personal estate, which had no right whatever to be going at large, but ought to be secured in that particular description of iron safe which is commonly called a coffin, and banked in the grave. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens He smiled gently. "It is of the first importance," he said, "not to allow your judgment to be biased by personal qualities. A client is to me a mere unit, a factor in a problem. The emotional qualities are antagonistic to clear reasoning. I assure you that the most winning woman I ever knew was hanged for poisoning three little children for their insurance-money, and the most repellant man of my acquaintance is a philanthropist who has spent nearly a quarter of a million upon the London poor." ~ The Sign of The Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "If you observe, people always live for ever when there is an annuity to be paid them." ~ Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen "It is very difficult for the prosperous to be humble." ~ Emma by Jane Austen "So few of us think clearly about our own private incomes, and admit that independent thoughts are in nine cases out of ten the result of independent means." ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster "Money pads the edges of things." ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster
