Greed quotes

Erich Fromm
Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.

Janwillem Van De Wetering
Greed is a fat demon with a small mouth and whatever you feed it is never enough.

Marian Wright Edelman
It's time for greatness - not for greed. It's a time for idealism - not ideology. It is a time not just for compassionate words, but compassionate action.

Thomas Traherne
It is of the nobility of man's soul that he is insatiable: for he hath a benefactor so prone to give, that he delighteth in us for asking. Do not your inclinations tell you that the WORLD is yours? Do you not covet all? Do you not long to have it to enjoy it to overcome it? To what end do men gather riches, but to multiply more? Do they not like Pyrrhus the King of Epire, add house to house and lands to lands, that they may get it all?

Proverb
God forgives the sin of gluttony.

Lord George Gordon Byron
So for a good old-gentlemanly vice, I think I must take up with avarice.

Aristotle
Madness is badness of spirit, when one seeks profit from all sources

Charles Kuralt
The everyday kindness of the back roads more than makes up for the acts of greed in the headlines.
