Power and wealth are not two of my main stakes.
He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
Miguel de Cervantes
If you look at anyone who has achieved great success and wealth, people like Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, or Lance Armstrong, they have all focused intensely in order to win.
If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free; if our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.
Hip-hop is more about attaining wealth. People respect success. They respect big. They don't even have to like your music. If you're big enough, people are drawn to you.
Wisdom outweighs any wealth.
What has history said of eminence without honor, wealth without wisdom, power and possessions without principle? The answer is reiterated in the overthrow of the mightiest empires of ancient times. Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome! The four successive, universal powers of the past. What and where are they?
Orson F. Whitney
O wise man! Give your wealth only to the worthy and never to others. The water of the sea received by the clouds is always sweet.
It is not the creation of wealth that is wrong, but the love of money for its own sake.
Measure your wealth by what you'd have left if you lost all your money.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Only the man who does not need it, is fit to inherit wealth, the man who would make his fortune no matter where he started.
It is the interest of the commercial world that wealth should be found everywhere.
Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. The act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.
Wealth flows from energy and ideas.
To many a man, and sometimes to a youth, there comes the opportunity to choose between honorable competence and tainted wealth. The young man who starts out to be poor and honorable, holds in his hand one of the strongest elements of success.
Orison Swett Marden
The wealth of the country, its capital, its credit, must be saved from the predatory poor as well as the predatory rich, but above all from the predatory politician.
James J. Hill
Wealth is not without its advantages and the case to the contrary, although it has often been made, has never proved widely persuasive.
John Kenneth Galbraith
The possession of wealth leads almost inevitably to its abuse. It is the chief, if not the only, cause of evils which desolate this world below. The thirst for gold is responsible for the most regrettable lapses into sin.
I think it's child abuse to have someone in the public eye too young. Society basically values wealth and fame and power at the cost of well-being. In the case of a child, it's at the cost of someone's natural development. It's already hard enough to develop.
Wealth brings with it refinement, the spirit of conservation, while poverty inspires adventurous ideas, the desire to change things, and has little care for life.
If a man has wealth, he has to make a choice, because there is the money heaping up. He can keep it together in a bunch, and then leave it for others to administer after he is dead. Or he can get it into action and have fun, while he is still alive. I prefer getting it into action and adapting it to human needs, and making the plan work.
Happy is he who has gained the wealth of divine thoughts, wretched is he whose beliefs about the gods are dark.
We form cities in order to enhance interaction, to facilitate growth, wealth creation, ideas, innovation, but in so doing, we create, from a physicist's viewpoint, entropy.
There's a wealth of information on James Dean, and everybody has an opinion on him. James Dean made some kind of impression on everybody.

C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
