Short Link to this Quote:



This quote from comedian W.C. Fields suggests that wealth alone does not define someone or necessarily change their underlying character. Having money does not automatically make a “rich man” out of someone who was previously a “poor man” without it.

The quote implies that core personality traits, values, habits, and mindsets persist regardless of fluctuations in financial status.

So a rich person may still think or behave essentially like a poor person deep down, with the same tendencies, vices or virtues.

The only real difference is their bank balance according to this view. So Fields seems to be commenting that richness is not solely defined by monetary wealth or social class.
