It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen Hereby perhaps Stubb indirectly hinted, that though man loved his fellow, yet man is a money-making animal, which propensity too often interferes with his benevolence. ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville Why should people ever take credit for charity when they must know that they cannot gain as much pleasure out of their guineas in any other fashion? ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle You know that he came into his uncle's money a little time ago, and after a first delirious outbreak, he has now relapsed into that dead heavy state of despair which is caused by having everything which one can wish for. How absurd are the ambitions of life when I think that I, who am fairly happy and as keen as a razor edge, should be struggling for that which I can see has brought neither profit nor happiness to him! ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle A bill, by the bye, is the most extraordinary locomotive engine that the genius of man ever produced. It would keep on running during the longest lifetime, without ever once stopping of its own accord. ~ The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens "All that glisters is not gold." ~ The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare "Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing; 'twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands; but he that filches from me my good name robs me of that which not enriches him and makes me poor indeed." ~ Othello by William Shakespeare "Money is like a sixth sense without which you cannot make a complete use of the other five." ~ Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham He had heard people speak contemptuously of money: he wondered if they had ever tried to do without it. ~ Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham "Money is a needful and precious thing, and when well used, a noble thing, but I never want you to think it is the first or only prize to strive for. I'd rather see you poor men's wives, if you were happy, beloved, contented, than queens on thrones, without self-respect and peace." ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
