atkins-bookshelf-quotations“Money can help you to get medicines but not health. Money can help you to get soft pillows, but not sound sleep. Money can help you to get material comforts, but not eternal bliss… Attain the supreme wealth, wisdom, and you will have everything.”

Benjamin Franklin, American statesman, author, inventor, and diplomat (1706-1790)

“Of all our possessions, wisdom alone is immortal.”

Socrates, Greek philosopher and teacher (470 to 399 BC)
