Erich Fromm – Not He Who Has Much Is Rich
“Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much.”
– Erich Fromm
The measure of personal wealth often isn’t in the fluctuating digits in one’s bank account, it’s the value of the person whose name is on the bank account. And real value can’t be counted. Those who have lots of money and store it away in yachts, personal real estate, clothes and other self-appointed pleasures will only ever have what they have, but the people who make money and gives it away to people who need the money the most will have more and more to give – and that’s real worth.
