Benjamin Jowett Quote


Picture Quote:



There is a serious defect in the thinking of someone who wants - more than anything else - to become rich. As long as they don't have the money, it'll seem like a worthwhile goal. Once they do, they'll understand how important other things are - and have always been.  - Benjamin Jowett
