the Journey:


If you're happy, you're wealthy.
Happiness doesn't need a bank account.

Mary Christelle Macaluso


Spiritual wealth can be a pathway to true and lasting happiness because with it, we have a resource to provide for what may be needed.  Material wealth may be dependent on many extraneous factors that can sometimes be outside our control.  Spiritual wealth can be within our control because it is an "inside job."  We are the ones who determine how much or how little we open our hearts and our minds.  If we take inventory and find ourselves lacking in spiritual wealth, we have the opportunity to replenish the supply.  Within us can be found the necessary tools for building productive and happy lives.  We can access the ability to be useful and, thereby, enjoy life, regardless of what may be taking place around us.     -John Marks Templeton


If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free.  If our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.     -Edmund Burke

When people love each other, they are content with very little. When we have light and joy in our hearts, we don't need material wealth. The most loving communities are often the poorest. If our own life is luxurious and wasteful, we can't approach poor people. If we love people, we want to identify with them and share with them.     -Jean Vanier
Anything that you learn becomes your wealth, a wealth that cannot be taken away from you; whether you learn it in a building called school or in the school of life. To learn something new is a timeless pleasure and a valuable treasure. And not all things that you learn are taught to you, but many things that you learn you realize you have taught yourself.     -C. JoyBell C.
Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.     -Franklin D. Roosevelt

The great enemy of freedom is the alignment of political power with wealth.  This alignment destroys the commonwealth-- that is, the natural wealth of localities and the local economies of household, neighborhood, and community-- and so destroys democracy, of which the commonwealth is the foundation and practical means.
-Wendell Berry
Seek not greater wealth, but simpler pleasure; not higher fortune, but deeper felicity.     -Mohandas Gandhi
Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.     -Epictetus
Who is rich? He who rejoiceth in his portion.     -The Talmud
It is wealth to be content.      -Lao Tzu

Many wealthy people are little more than janitors of their possessions.     -Frank Lloyd Wright
Who is wealthy? One who is happy with what they have.      -Pirkei Avot
Wealth is a relative thing since those who have little and want less are richer than those who have much but want more.     -Charles Caleb Colton
One of the reasons the rich get richer, the poor get poorer and the middle class struggles in debt is because the subject of money is taught at home, not at school.     -Robert Kiyosaki
Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his lifetime for the good of the community.     -Andrew Carnegie
The only question with wealth is what do you do with it?     -John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
Money is good, love is wealth.      -Doug Horton
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.     -J.R.R.Tolkien
One of the reasons the rich get richer, the poor get poorer and the middle class struggles in debt is because the subject of money is taught at home, not at school.      -Robert Kiyosaki

I have no absolute right to my wealth; it comes from my ancestors, my parents and from the billions of people who have worked before me to learn, to develop, to create the foundations and wealth of this planet.  It is my turn to contribute to the progress of humanity.  I will be grateful for anything I am paid in return.     -Robert Muller
If all the gold in the world were melted down into a solid cube it would be about the size of an eight-room house. If a man got possession of all that gold--billions of dollars worth--he could not buy a friend, character, peace of mind, clear conscience, or a sense of eternity.     -Charles F. Banning
The greatest wealth is contentment with a little.     -English Proverb
So many people of wealth understand much more about making and saving money than about using and enjoying it. They fail to live because they are always preparing to live. Instead of earning a living they are mostly earning an earning, and thus when the time comes to relax they are unable to do so. Many a “successful” man is bored and miserable when he retires, and returns to his work only to prevent a younger man from taking his place.    -Alan Watts, The Wisdom of Insecurity
