Posted by admin on Sunday, September 3, 2017

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Money Quote saying those who have money also have that which it can buy – which makes the owner of the funds, the owner of those properties they could potentially purchase. Goethe said:

That which is for me through the medium of money – that for which I can pay (i.e., which money can buy) – that am I myself, the possessor of the money. The extent of the power of money is the extent of my power. Money’s properties are my – the possessor’s – properties and essential powers
— Goethe
