“All ambitions are lawful except those which climb upward on the miseries or credulities of mankind. All intellectual and artistic ambitions are permissible, up to and even beyond the limit of prudent sanity. They can hurt no one.”
—Joseph Conrad (18571924)
“Seeing is believing, and if an American success is to count for anything in the world it must be clothed in the raiment of property. As often as not it isnt the money itself that means anything; it is the use of money as the currency of the soul.”
