What difference does it make how much you have? What you do not have amounts to much more.
The Taj Mahal was built by a ruthless but incredibly rich Mugal Emperor, Shah Jehan, for his wife. Both are now dead.
If you want to feel rich,
just count all of the things you have that money can't buy.
Most people seek after what they do not possess and are
thus enslaved by the very things they want to acquire.
Economics is not about things and tangible material objects;
it is about men, their meanings and actions.
The best things in life aren't things.
It all depends on whether you have things,
or they have you.
We are the slaves of objects around us, and
appear little or important according as these contract us or give us room to expand.
After a visit to the beach, it's hard to believe that
we live in a material world.
Materialism is the only form of distraction
from true bliss.
