Which is exactly what he DID!
"What would I do if I had only six months left to live? I'd type faster." ~ Isaac Asimov
Life seems to be an experience in ascending and descending. You think you're beginning to live for a single aim—for self-development, or the discovery of cosmic truths—when all you're really doing is to move from place to place as if devoted primarily to real estate. -- Margaret Anderson (1886–1973), U.S. editor and memoirist.
In any country where talent and virtue produce no advancement, money will be the national god. Its inhabitants will either have to possess money or make others believe that they do. Wealth will be the highest virtue, poverty the greatest vice. Those who have money will display it in every imaginable way. If their ostentation does not exceed their fortune, all will be well. But if their ostentation does exceed their fortune they will ruin themselves. In such a country, the greatest fortunes will vanish in the twinkling of an eye. Those who don't have money will ruin themselves with vain efforts to conceal their poverty. That is one kind of affluence: the outward sign of wealth for a small number, the mask of poverty for the majority, and a source of corruption for all. -- Denis Diderot (1774)
The God of the Christians is a father who makes much of his apples, and very little of his children. -- Denis Diderot
Some things never change:
Look, we trade every day out ther with hustlers, deal-makers, shysters, con-men. That's the way businesses get started. That's the way this country was built. -- Hubert Allen, American financier (b 1872 - d. ?)
Childhood shows the man
As the morning shows the day.
That is a GREAT quote, DG, I've always been in favor of taking sides, always in favor of the weak.
