Je suis absolument convaincu qu'aucune richesse dans le monde ne peut aider l'humanité à avancer, même entre les mains du travailleur le plus dévoué. L’exemple d’individus grands et purs est la seule chose qui puisse nous conduire à de nobles pensées et actes. l'argent ne fait qu'appeler à l'égoïsme et invite irrésistiblement aux abus. Quelqu'un peut-il imaginer Moïse, Jésus ou Gandhi armés des sacs d'argent de Carnegie
