What the super-rich and others have to say about money in these pages is sometimes enlightening, sometimes profound, often entertaining, and always revealing. Topics include wealth (“If you can actually count your money, then you are not really a rich man."—J. Paul Getty); investing (“Only buy something that you'd be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for ten years."—Warren Buffett); success (“The secret of success is to do common things uncommonly well."—John D. Rockefeller); and leadership (“The buck stops with the guy who signs the checks."—Rupert Murdoch). In addition are proverbs, quips, and other commentary on all aspects of having a fortune.
