Wisdom from the Wealthy: Sunday’s WaPo Column


In case you missed it, my Sunday Washington Post column is on the interesting life lessons I have learned from people of great wealth.

I excerpted it yesterday. Rather than run yet another excerpt, I’d rather a) Point you to “7 life lessons from the very wealthy,” and 2) pull some of the quotes that I used in it.

Money won’t buy happiness, but it will pay the salaries of a large research staff to study the problem.
-Bill Vaughan

Amat victoria curam.“
(Translation:  “Victory loves careful preparation.”)

“Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.”
-Roman philosopher Seneca the Younger

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
-John Lennon, “Beautiful Boy”

If you enjoy quotes and aphorisms such as these, I suggest you follow Market Quotes on Twitter.
