theblackscorsese “In every family of affluence, someone somewhere had to climb from a lower level to a higher level. Even the British royal family had a poor striver somewhere in the past. *Old money* simply means that several generations have lived in the lap of luxury because some character back there had a good idea and worked his rear end off—and probably had a wonderful time doing it—to move the family from the poor neighborhood to the rich neighborhood. All old money was once *nouveau riche,* despite claims to the contrary. Once a fortune has momentum, it's not all that difficult to build it into a great fortune; there are experts who do nothing else and who would be delighted to do the same for you and me. It's getting it started that takes the unusual person, the person who simply refuses, for whatever reason, to march in lockstep with the big gang going nowhere, the person who does something of unusual value.” —Earl Nightingale 9h
