Quotation Bullet

A certain kind of rich man afflicted with the symptoms of moral dandyism sooner or later comes to the conclusion that it isn't enough merely to make money.

Their children, who represent the most present and therefore the most annoying claim on their attention, usually receive the brunt of their irritation.
~ Lewis H. Lapham - [Riches]
