Riches Quotes

Riches are for spending.

Francis Bacon

The passion of acquiring riches in order to support a vain expense corrupts the purest souls.

Francois de Salignac Fenelon

If only the people who worry about their liabilities would think about the riches they do possess, they would stop worrying. Would you sell both your eyes for a million dollars ... or your two legs ... or your hands ... or your hearing? Add up what you do have, and you'll find that you won't sell them for all the gold in the world. The best things in life are yours, if you can appreciate yourself.

Dale Carnegie

Fame is vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.

Horace Greeley

For it is a land of illusion, a place in the mind, a shimmering mirage of riches and mystery and death. These illusions have distorted its landscape and contorted its history

Richard E. Lingenfelter

The story of barbecue is the story of America: Settlers arrive on great unspoiled continent, discover wondrous riches, set them on fire and eat them.

Vince Staten

Riches are not from abundance of worldly goods, but from a contented mind.


Grant that I may become beautiful in my soul within, and that all my external possessions may be in harmony with my inner self. May I consider the wise to be rich, and may I have such riches as only a person of self-restraint can bear or endure


A horse is worth more than riches.

Spanish Proverb

You have infinite riches within your reach

Joseph Murphy

Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.


Envy, like the worm, never runs but to the fairest fruit; like a cunning bloodhound, it singles out the fattest deer in the flock. Abraham's riches were the Philistines' envy; and Jacob's blessing bred Esau's hatred.

J. Beaumont

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.


Riches are gotten with pain, kept with care, and lost with grief


As favor and riches forsake a man, we discover in him the foolishness they concealed, and which no one perceived before.

Jean De La Bruyere
