“The recognition of the law of the cause and effect, also known as karma, is a fundamental key to understand how you’ve created your world, with actions of your body, speech and mind.  When you truly understand karma, then you realize you are responsible for everything in your life.  It is incredibly empowering to know that your future is in your hands.”

“Our dreams can teach us, instruct us, confuse us… sometimes I think they look to be considered.  And in terms of like, they are an opportunity and I think they most certainly could be utilized to focus, to try and achieve – whether it’s looking for someone, or influencing us, or inspiring us.”

“The simple act of paying attention can take you a long way.”

“Money buys you the freedom to live your life the way you want.”

“My name can’t be that tough to pronounce!”

“Money doesn’t mean anything to me.  I’ve made a lot of money, but I want to enjoy life and not stress myself building my bank account.  I give lots away and live simply, mostly out of a suitcase in hotels.  We all know that good health is much more important.”

“I am one of the only Hollywood stars without a mansion.  I don’t have any bodyguards and do not wear fancy clothes.  And even though I’m worth $100 million, I still ride the subway and I love it!”

“Money is the last thing I think about.  I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.”

“Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, so live today.”
