Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness!
The more you have, the more people come to help you spend it. So what good is wealth—except perhaps to watch it slip through your fingers!
People who work hard sleep well, whether they eat little or much. But the rich seldom get a good night’s sleep.
There is another serious problem I have seen under the sun. Hoarding riches harms the saver.
Money is put into risky investments that turn sour, and everything is lost. In the end, there is nothing left to pass on to one’s children.
We all come to the end of our lives as naked and empty-handed as on the day we were born. We can’t take our riches with us.
And this, too, is a very serious problem. People leave this world no better off than when they came. All their hard work is for nothing—like working for the wind.
Throughout their lives, they live under a cloud—frustrated, discouraged, and angry.
