I am absolutely convinced that no wealth in the world can help humanity forward, even in the hands of the most devoted worker.

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

我绝对相信,即使在最忠诚的工人手中,世界上任何财富都无法帮助人类前进。伟大而纯洁的个体的榜样是唯一可以引导我们崇高思想和行为的东西。金钱只会吸引自私,不可抗拒地招致虐待。任何人都可以想象摩西,耶稣或甘地用卡内基的钱袋装备
