“We are more than our investments.”

Quoted in today's GuideStar newsletter (thank you, GuideStar!):

"We are more than our investments. We are more than the year-to-year or
day-by-day changes in our net worth. We are what we do for charity. We
are how we treat our family and friends. We are how we treat our dogs
and cats. We are what we do for our community and our nation. If you
had $100 million or $100,000 a year ago and now you have a lot less,
you are still the same person. You are not a balance sheet, at least
not one denominated in money, as was explained to me recently."

Ben Stein, "They Told Me that Madoff Never Lost Money," New York Times, December 26,2008
