A rich house makes its foolish inhabitants wise. Don’t look down on anyone unless you are helping them up. Money doesn’t change people, it mainly exposes them. You can dress a monkey in a suit, but it is still a monkey. Be yourself beautiful, and you will find the world full of beauty. Look at a man’s deeds, not whether he is tall or short.
