Quote of the Day (Joseph Conrad, on Youth Vs. Wealth As Assets)

“The audacity of youth reckons upon what it fancies an unlimited time at its disposal; but a millionaire has unlimited means in his hand—which is better. One's time on earth is an uncertain quantity, but about the long reach of millions there is no doubt.” — Polish-born British novelist Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard (1904)
