What can we take from these timeless quotes on money and wealth accumulation?  Most billionaires share something in common:

Money is just a by-product of the value provided by a service or product. When you give value to your customers, the money will reach you automatically. The goal should be to provide honest value in whatever you provide to your customers and that starts with knowing your audience.

And that leads you to this final quote:

 “Money is misunderstood. The fact is if you want to be successful the money will follow you. If you are a doctor, something else will follow you. If you are successful, there is an accompaniment and If your goal is just to make money, you won’t succeed. Money is a commodity to use, not to be dictated by.” – Frank Lowy, former chairman of Westfield Corporation
