»Aber du merkst doch, dass immer mehr Leute ihr Handeln am Maßstab der Liebe messen und danach streben, mehr zu lieben. Du hast doch selber einmal gesagt, dass das Geld eine phänomenal raffinierte Ablenkung vom wirklichen Sinn des Lebens struggle. Dass erst behauptet wurde, das Geld stehe für einen realen Wert und am Schluss stand es für gar nichts mehr, und nur eine kleine Bande von Betrügern und Verbrechern struggle in die Gefangenschaft des Geldes geraten und musste es vermehren – ob sie wollten oder nicht.«
