Nuggets of Wisdom: Money Power Love by Joss Sheldon

  • Endings are not always bad. Most times, they are just beginnings in disguise.
  • The fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.
  • There are people who have money and people who are rich.
  • Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
  • Money is a social convention; it has no intrinsic value which comes before its use. Instead, its value is created by its constant exchange and use.
  • Absolute power corrupts absolutely but absolute powerlessness does the same. It’s not the poverty, it’s the inequality we live with every day that will turn us insane. 
  • We were all humans until race disconnected us, religion separated us, politics divided us, and wealth classified us. 
  • The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.
  • The most introspective of souls are often those that have been hurt the most.
  • The urge to destroy is also a creative urge.
  • The hardest thing of all is to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat. 
  • Art comes from some sense of discomfort with the world.
  • Knowledge without justice ought to be called cunning rather than wisdom.
  • self-deception is when you wind up believing what you wanted, to believe all along. That’s how many of us fall in love.
  • He who does not know how to take advantage of luck when it comes to him has no right to complain if it passes by.
  • Perhaps some of us have to go through dark and devious ways before we can find the river of peace.
  • I must finish what I’ve started, even if, inevitably, what I finish turns out not to be what I began.
  • Mastering others is a strength. Mastering yourself is true power!
