Greed Quotes


Famous Quotes & Quotations About Greed:

Wars and revolutions and battles are due simply and solely to the body and its desires. All wars are undertaken for the acquisition of wealth; and the reason why we have to acquire wealth is the body, because we are slaves in its service.
~ Socrates.

Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.
~ Arthur Schopenhauer.

What does labor want? We want more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact, more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures, to make manhood more noble, womanhood more beautiful, and childhood more happy and bright.
~ Samuel Gompers.
