Sunday Sayings – Greed and Risk

When I had money everyone called me brother ~ Polish Proverb

“If you risk something that is important to you for something that is unimportant to you, it just does not make any sense.”

Warren Buffet

“Greed culminates in a selfish desire for something.” [The philosophy Forum]

He who knows he has enough is rich

Tao Te Ching

Warren Buffett, one of the world’s richest men noted that, despite his commitment to ethics, he wouldn’t rule out holding up a store if he were broke, had two sick kids at home, and an empty fridge.

But Buffett also ridiculed a suite of millionaire bankers who decided they wanted to try and get more millions. It’s foolish, to risk what you do have and don’t need.. it doesn’t matter what your IQ is, Buffett pointed out.

At what point does necessity or desire push a person over the line to behaviour motivated by greed?

What would it take for you to risk your income, house, and wealth?

Everyone’s opinion is important. What is yours?

I find there to be profound wisdom in proverbs, sayings and quotes and I marvel at the way they are so succinct in communicating messages to the reader. Mostly anonymous, they come to us from past generations and from across cultures. They speak of the experiences of lives lived and lessons learned. Quotes, like proverbs, make us think more deeply about something.

It is not my favourite thing but I do admire the artistry in its production. I used wedgwood and the Moravian designs frrom the Czech Republic for inspiration for this jewellery box.

A simple monochrome palette can look effective on a blue background.
