Sigh. Let's look at the whole quote, shall we?

"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."
Barack Obama

The "you didn't build that" is in reference to everything else that helps your business to thrive. Teachers, roads, bridges, Internet.

Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.

Benjamin Franklin

If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.

A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you... Look at every path closely and deliberately, as many times as you think necessay, then ask yourself alone...Does this path have heart? If it does, the path is good and should be followed, if it doesn't it is of no use.

Whilst most of these old
quotes and proverbs have wisdom..most certainly

I notice
not *all* of them are necessarily true

take the one above about money

'there is nothing in it's nature to produce happiness'

While we all know
money isn't everything,
in many cases it can be put to good use.>

- If one were to pay for a serious surgery that would save
a child's life, if the parents couldn't afford it,
doesn't good come from that money!-

One example of many.
