—Lord Chesterfield

“The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all.”
—Gilbert K. Chesterton

“When a man tells you that he got rich through hard work, ask him: ‘Whose?’”
—Don Marquis

“Americans have so far put up with inequality because they felt they could change their status. They didn’t mind others being rich, as long as they had a path to move up as well. The American Dream is all about social mobility in a sense — the idea that anyone can make it.”
—Fareed Zakaria

“A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.”
—Henry David Thoreau
