Alfred Nobel

Alfred Nobel

Swedish chemist, engineer, inventor of dynamite.
I regard large inherited wealth as a misfortune, which merely serves to dull men's faculties. A man who possesses great wealth should, therefore, allow only a small portion to descend to his relatives. Even if he has children, I consider it a mistake to hand over to them considerable sums of money beyond what is necessary for their education. To do so merely encourages laziness and impedes the healthy development of the individual's capacity to make an independent position for himself.More Alfred Nobel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
