Zitat von David Rockefeller

Materielle Dinge können zu einem angenehmen Leben beitragen, keine Frage. Aber wenn man keine guten Freunde und keine gute Familie um sich herum hat, ist das Leben leer und materielle Dinge verlieren an Wert.

I am convinced that material things can contribute a lot to making one's life pleasant, but, basically, if you do not have very good friends and relatives who matter to you, life will be really empty and sad and material things cease to be important.

Geld & Reichtum, Freundschaft, Familie

Zitat von David Rockefeller

Ich reise leidenschaftlich gerne. Seit meiner Kindheit haben Reisen mir genauso viel beigebracht wie meine Bildung. Um die Kulturen anderer Länder zu schätzen, muss man dorthin gehen und die Menschen und ihre Kultur hautnah erleben.

I am a passionate traveler, and from the time I was a child, travel formed me as much as my formal education. In order to appreciate cultures of another nation, one needs to go there, know the people and mingle with the culture of that country. One way to do that, if one is lucky enough, is to buy things from those cultures.

Toleranz, Reisen & Fernweh

You know, gentlemen, that I do not owe any personal income tax. But nevertheless, I send a small check, now and then, to the Internal Revenue Service out of the kindness of my heart.

Philanthropy is involved with basic innovations that transform society, not simply maintaining the status quo or filling basic social needs that were formerly the province of the public sector.

Zitat von David Rockefeller

My own interest in art was because of my mother. My father didn't like contemporary art, so he didn't give her large sums to spend. So, she began buying prints and drawings. During my school days, I remember sitting in on many of the early meetings.
