February 22, 2007: Money and knowledge (some quotes)

Time for something different. The constant chorus of catatonic cacophony needs a respite. These are some of my favorite quotes on the topics of MONEY and KNOWLEDGE.

Personally I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.

Any man under 30 who is not a liberal has no heart, and any man over 30 who is not a conservative has no brains.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it

We get to make a living; we give to make a life.

The nation will find it very hard to look up to leaders who keep their ears to the ground.

This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.

and one of my favorites:

I may be drunk madam, but in the morning I will be sober, and you will be just as ugly.
