One of Brian’s Favorite Quotes
You Europeans know nothing about America. Because we amass large fortunes you think we care for nothing but money. We are nothing for it; the moment we have it we spend it, sometimes well, sometimes ill, but we spend it. Money is nothing to us; it’s merely the symbol of success. We are the greatest idealists in the world; I happen to think that we‘ve set our ideal on the wrong objects; I happen to think that the greatest ideal man can set before himself is self-perfection.”
— W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)
The Razor’s Edge, 1943
