Our list of Immanuel Kant Quotes
We are not rich by what we possess but by what we can do without.

The Immanuel Kant's quote says that wealth is not defined by what we own but by what we can do without.
Today we define an individual's wealth by how much money he has, but this assessment is wrong.
Instead, a person who can do without some material object is far richer than someone who needs that thing but has money. Not depending on something is our standard of evaluation.
If we do not depend on a specific item, then we are aware that even without that item, we can continue our activities, deal with our problems and live our lives.
