William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)


Yeah. These millionaires are less lucky than those billionaires - but how much exactly? Anyway. Indeed. Be humble. In the worst case, fake it.

Yeah. Though that alone doesn’t make it less dangerous or easier to deal with...
Topic: Let's not borrow trouble ... The rate of interest is too high.

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)
