Get place and wealth, if possible with grace; if not, by any means get wealth and place.
In the ocean of baseness, the deeper we get, the easier the sinking.

We have self-centered minds which get us into plenty of trouble. If we do not come to understand the error in the way we think, our self-awareness, which is our greatest blessing, is also our downfall.
