You have undertaken to cheat me. I won't sue you, for the law is too slow. I'll ruin you.
I don't care half so much about making money as I do about making my point, and coming out ahead.

I have been insane on the subject of moneymaking all my life.
If I had learned education I would not have had time to learn anything else.
