About This Quiz

One spent his life in service to others, helping the people of India through nonviolence and quiet protest. The other gobbles up real estate, making his name synonymous with excess. But you might be surprised to find out who said what.

"Money was never a big motivation for me."

Trump probably didn't look very convincing when he said this.


"Surround yourself with smart, truthful, honest people."

An understated piece of wisdom from The Donald.


"Capital in some form or other will always be needed."

This is Gandhi, recognizing that everyone could use a little cash.


"Money won't create success, the freedom to make it will."

Neither. It's Nelson Mandela.


"I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers."

Who knew Gandhi had such a problem with the paparazzi?


"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

Surprisingly feisty words from a prince of peace like Gandhi.


"In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish."

Again, some simple, unglitzy advice from Trump.


"Honesty is incompatible with amassing a large fortune."

This would be Gandhi.


"Honesty is for the most part less profitable than dishonesty."

Could be any of them, but this one's Plato.

Wise words from the man with the comb-over.
