ACQUIREMENT
[ Also see Accomplishments Accumulation Avarice Covetousness Gain Gold Loss Money Possession Property Riches Wealth ]

That which we acquire with the most difficulty we retain the longest; as those who have earned a fortune are usually more careful of it than those who have inherited one.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

We shall at all times chance upon men of recondite acquirements, but whose qualifications, from the incommunicative and inactive habits of their owners, are as utterly useless to others as though the possessors had them not.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

That good sense which nature affords us is preferable to most of the knowledge that we can acquire.
      - Philippe de Comines
