I can resist anything except temptation

I can resist anything except temptation.

Oscar Wilde

I just got a job where I make more money than I used to.

It’s funny how quickly you adjust what you make to what you spend.

But it’s never enough. You know, people make proclamations that others are despicable when they start getting money or power and it goes to their head.

Yet, you haven’t felt the money or power. There’s no chance for it to go to your head because there was no opportunity.

It’s easy to be caught up in a swell of alcohol, money, and vices. Anyone can be caught in it.

Everyone is susceptible. The first trick in marketing is getting you to think you won’t be taken in because you know it’s an advertisement.

Everyone can be taken in. 

Be the one who can resist what’s offered, or else your desires will own you.
