He had heard people speak contemptuously of money: he wondered if they had ever tried to do without it.
The more one presupposes that his own power will suffice him to realize what he desires the more practical is that desire. When I treat a man contemptuously, I can inspire him with no practical desire to appreciate my grounds of truth. When I treat any one as worthless, I can inspire him with no desire to do right.Immanuel Kant
