#2 Or to those who inherit all their good things from rich relatives.
Paris Hilton works hard. Do you think it is easy to get every std known to man and then some more?
It's true. 45-60% of a parent's financial advantage is likely to be passed down to Johnny Richboy, who will in turn never have to sustain a callous on his silver spoon holding hands. But, if Average Joe works hard enough, puts himself through college, and attains a degree, the maybe one day he'll be able to work for him.
Missed the whole point didn't you. Quit bitchin', get off your ass and make it happen. Don't be so jealous, and maybe someday you can pass on your wealth to your children and not some leach who feels entitled to your hard-work.
I've heard that by the 3rd generation, all inherited wealth is squandered. Just because they had money fall into their lap, doesn't make them special or happy. It just means that money fell into thier lap.
exactly, the quote say "good things" not "wealth"
I was just sorta making a joke. But interesting thread it sparked.
But ultimately, using wealth as some sort of metric of hard work must be a logical fallacy. As HammerBro points out, there are many people who are wealthy who didn't do squat to become that way except have a Rich Uncle Pennybags who died. There are plenty of dudes hard at work out there cleaning a toilet who don't have a dime.
Obviously, but hard work gives intrinsic rewards, rewards you cannot buy, read, or inherit.
life is empty when you have earned nothing
Give your children enough so that they can do anything…but not so much that they can do nothing.
So many kids feel so entitled and its the parents who didn't see it coming. Everyone wants to grow up, go to college and get a job for 40 years. Bust your ass, fail a few times and make something of yourself
Bad things come to them as well, Heart Attack's, High Blood Pressure, and a realization that you spent so much time working for your future that you forgot to enjoy the present. Somewhere there is a happy median that we all need to find.
If you say "my cocaine" it sounds like you're saying "Michael Caine" in his accent.
Nice, Ned. Thumbs up.
HANG IN THERE NEDDO
I think my boss is likely to search my locker later. Don't try this if your already a cockney and your boss is in the next cubicle……..

Golden Retrievers are the best dogs in the world. Until you have lived with one you have no idea have inferior all other breeds are.

#25 Through it always keep your chin up and KCCO.
I really needed this one today
You and me both Prime!
What if they literally rip you limb from limb? Don't think much conquering would be done then
#2 Truth. I am so tired of hearing my students call someone a "try-hard" when they put in effort in the classroom. My dad raised me to bust my ass and work hard for everything…since when is it such a bad thing to want to do well? Fucking kids.
The only thing that's worse is if the "try-hards" listen, and start slacking like everyone else.
Buckaroo Banzi: Where ever you go, there you are.
Don't worry – they may call people names like "try-hard" now, but someday they will be saying "would you like fries with that?" thanks to their ignorance. Karma is a mean bitch.
Or they end up in a park, crying that its not fair!
Ha! Never heard "try-hard" before.. probably because I don't stand around waiting to hear what haters think of my work ethic. In any case, I'll wear the title proudly. Shit. I might even start a "try-hard" club.
I always expect one day to see a quote from Conan the Barbarian on one of these.
Conan! What is best in life?
To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.
That is good!
What could be more inspirational?
I have the shirt from thinkgeek.. love it
… but ya have to do Arnold's accent in your head for full effect!
Is there any other way to read Conan quotes?
Try NOT doing it in his accent. Damn near impossible!
It was actually Genghis Khan: One day in the pavilion at Karakorum he [Genghis Khan] asked an officer of the Mongol guard what, in all the world, could bring the greatest happiness.
"The open steppe, a clear day, and a swift horse under you," responded the officer after a little thought, "and a falcon on your wrist to start up hares."
"Nay," responded the Khan, "to crush your enemies, to see them fall at your feet — to take their horses and goods and hear the lamentation of their women. That is best."
Didn't know it had any basis in real life. But thanks for the info.
In my experience, you're lucky if that only happens once in your life.
#11 cant wait for support group tonight
See you there!
Remove iphone banner ads, they are awful!!

Remove them yourself with AdBlock. Good things come to those who get off their asses and try instead of waiting for someone else to do it for them.

#24 So true.
#24 no kidding.
Awesome post !!!
Thank you CHIVE !!!!!
#11 That was Drew Carey on the Drew Carey show! Cripes…
Fish, for sport only, not for meat. Fish meat is practically a vegetable.
Wow, no love for Ron Swanson, what's America coming to?
For real man, that was a great quote. Chive's been raining thumbs down lately.
Then you'd like :http://ronsays.tumblr.com/
It's got some of his best quotes like the all the steak & eggs one.
Good thread for a true shit-fest of a day.
#12 not true…i got drunk and had sex 20 years ago
Perhaps in 20 years you'll look back and be disappointed that you didn't post with a handle that wasn't "Drunken Homo Farts"
#25 well this really hit home….
Posts like this & Chive Everywhere balance out the T&A posts rather nicely.
#15 enough said.
what about the one where it's exam day and i haven't studied. And i'm naked for somereason.
well i suppose that all depends…
This can be a very hard lesson to learn.
And an even harder one to actually carry through with.
and when you do, they still manage to find blame in you instead of themselves.. Even if you are completely honest with them..
That's when you KC&CO!
That sounds like too much trouble. I'll just order a hooker.
This isn't just about dating. It could also be friends and family. Try not to be the one being given up on.
I think that quote, your reply, and the tread it started has become my new daily affirmation!
