...being rich ain't what it's cracked up to be. It's just worry and worry, and sweat and sweat, and a-wishing you was dead all the time.
- The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
The offspring of riches: Pride, vanity, ostentation, arrogance, tyranny.
- Mark Twain, a Biography
If all men were rich, all men would be poor.
- Mark Twain's Notebook
It is good to begin life poor; it is good to begin life rich
-- these are wholesome; but to begin it prospectively rich! The man who has
not experienced it cannot imagine the curse of it.
- Autobiography of Mark Twain, (University of California Press, 2010)
