- People who have what they want are very fond of telling people who
haven't what they want that they really don't want it,
- And I wish I could afford to gather all such people into a gloomy
castle on the Danube and hire half a dozen capable Draculas to haunt it.
- I dont' mind their having a lot of money, and I don't care how they
- But I do think that they damn well ought to admit they enjoy it.
- But no, they insist on being stealthy
- About the pleasures of being wealthy,
- And the possession of a handsome annuity
- Makes them think that to say how hard it is to make both ends meet is
their bounden duity.
- You cannot conceive of an occasion
- Which will find them without some suitable evasion.
- Yes indeed, with argumetsn they are very fecund;
- Their first point is that money isn't everything, and that they have
no money anyhow is their second.
- Some people's money is merited,
- And other people's is inherited,
- But wherever it comes from,
- They talk about it as if it were something you got pink gums from.
- Perhaps indeed the possession of wealth is constantly distressing,
- But I should be quite willing to assume every curse of wealth if I
could at the same time assume every blessing.
- The only incurable troubles of the rich are the troubles that money
- Which is a kind of trouble that is even more troublesome if you are
- Certainly there are lots of things in life that money won't buy, but
it's very funny --
- Have you ever tried to buy them without money?
