“Make lots of money. In your life you will do things you don’t like to do, but they’ll make money. You can use that money to do the things you want to do. It’s really as simple as that.”
—Paul Rand, designer extraordinaire, in a conversation with John Maeda
Others have said it other ways: Money is a tool. Or, when dealing in business, be shrewd as serpents and harmless as doves. Or, don’t be a slave to money; make it serve you instead. Or, be trustworthy with the little you have been given to steward so you can be trusted with much more of your own.
