The dreams and passions stored within hearts are powerful keys which can unlock a wealth of potential.
John C. Maxwell
Matters of the heart are important to me. All this materialism and all the money and wealth are things that you don't take to the grave. One day you have it. The next day you don't.
The difference between rich and poor is becoming more extreme, and as income inequality widens the wealth gap in major nations, education, health and social mobility are all threatened.
Helene D. Gayle

Louis D. Brandeis
If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free; if our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.
The gratification of wealth is not found in mere possession or in lavish expenditure, but in its wise application.
Miguel de Cervantes

It's a theory.
