The following quotation from 1988, respectively, highlights Warren Buffett's thoughts on his wealth and why he long planned to re-allocate it:

下面兩段文字,分別摘自巴菲特於1988的談話。突顯了他對財富的想法,以及想要改變財產分配計劃的動機。

摘自:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Buffett

 

I don't have a problem with guilt about money. The way I see it is that my money represents an enormous number of claim checks on society. It's like I have these little pieces of paper that I can turn into consumption. If I wanted to, I could hire 10,000 people to do nothing but paint my picture every day for the rest of my life. And the GNP would go up. But the utility of the product would be zilch, and I would be keeping those 10,000 people from doing AIDS research, or teaching, or nursing. I don't do that though. I don't use very many of those claim checks. There's nothing material I want very much. And I'm going to give virtually all of those claim checks to charity when my wife and I die.

「我對自己所擁有的錢,並無任何的罪惡感,因為這些錢,代表了無數未來將由社會來兌現的支票。我不過是擁有許多支票,可以轉化成消費。如果願意,我可以雇用一萬個人,每天只要幫我作畫就好,如此一來,國民生產總值(GNP)便可提昇。但這些事是毫無作用的,只會讓那些原本可以進行愛滋病研究、教學、或相關的醫護人員減少許多而已。不過,我不會做這種事,因為我很少去兌現支票,物質生活原本就不是我所追求的。因此,在我和妻子離開人世時,我會將這些支票全部捐獻出來,作為慈善之用。」

 

His children will not inherit a significant proportion of his wealth. These actions are consistent with statements he has made in the past indicating his opposition to the transfer of great fortunes from one generation to the next.  Buffett once commented, "I want to give my kids just enough so that they would feel that they could do anything, but not so much that they would feel like doing nothing".

華倫·巴菲特的子女將繼承他財產的部份,比例並不會太高。這與華倫·巴菲特過去一再表示,不願意讓大量財富代代相傳的想法,是相當一致的。華倫·巴菲特曾表示:「我想給子女的,是足以讓他們能夠一展抱負,而不是多到讓他們最後一事無成。」

 

**********************

 

"The most happy people do not necessarily to have all the best things.

But they are only value of life which encountered in the path
on everything, "  

Let all of us would like to select this path of life

 

“最快樂的人不一定擁有一切最好的東西.

他們只是珍惜人生道路上遇到的每一樣東西"

 

願我們都選擇這樣的生活道路
