Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.
Lord Acton - historian and moralist (1834 - 1902)
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw - writer and socialist (1856 - 1950)
Money does not make you happy: it just makes you more comfortable in your misery.
My own paraphrased version of a quote by:
Helen Gurley Brown - author and publisher (1922 - 2012)
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
Neale Donald Walsch - author (b1943)
