“Money makes your life easier. If you’re lucky [enough] to have it, you’re lucky.” — Robert De Niro, quoted in the “What I’ve Learned” section on page 96 of the current Esquire (January 2008, Johnny Depp on the cover).

“People who tend to go after money as a solution for whatever they feel they lack had better be careful what they pray for, because they just may get it.” — Eric Clapton, quoted on page 95 in the same issue.
