More quotes about:

The chief duty of the National Government in connection with the currency of the country is to coin money and declare its value. Grave doubts have been entertained whether Congress is authorized by the Constitution to make any form of paper money legal tender. The present issue of United States notes has been sustained by the necessities of war; but such paper should depend for its value and currency upon its convenience in use and its prompt redemption in coin at the will of the holder, and not upon its compulsory circulation. These notes are not money, but promises to pay money. If the holders demand it, the promise should be kept. James Garfield Quote Details

More quotes about:

Did you get your money by fraud? By pandering to men's vices or men's stupidity? By catering to fools, in the hope of getting more than your ability deserves? By lowering your standards? By doing work you despise for purchasers you scorn? If so, then your money will not give you a moment's or a penny's worth of joy. Then all the things you buy will become, not a tribute to you, but a reproach; not an achievement, but a reminder of shame. Ayn Rand Quote Details

More quotes about:

Very many people spend money in ways quite different from those that their natural tastes would enjoin, merely because the respect of their neighbors depends upon their possession of a good car and their ability to give good dinners. As a matter of fact, any man who can obviously afford a car but genuinely prefers travels or a good library will in the end be much more respected than if he behaved exactly like everyone else. Bertrand Russell Quote Details

More quotes about:

It's better to do nothing with your money than something you don't understand. Suze Orman Quote Details

More quotes about:

You must first ask "What is the purpose of my life?" before asking "What is the purpose of my money?" Once the first question is answered, you have thus answered the second. Making your money a tool for life, and not making your life a tool for money, is a choice. Kent Thune Quote Details

More quotes about:

The problem with making money your God is you have to save it before it can save you. Craig Sanford Quote Details

More quotes about:

Money ought never to be the consideration in marriage, but it always ought to be a consideration. When a boy and a girl don't think enough about money before the ceremony, they're going to have to think altogether too much about it after; and when a man's doing sums at home evenings, it comes kind of awkward for him to try to hold his wife on his lap. George Horace Lorimer Quote Details

Once you can take care of yourself and your family and everything you need, beyond that it's [wealth] a bunch of claim checks. If you think about money, it's a claim check on other people's products and services. When you've got enough to take care of yourself, more claim checks don't do you any good. But they can do a lot of good for all kinds of other people. Warren Buffett Quote Details

More quotes about:

The happiest people I know are those who give away their money. The saddest are those who hold their possessions in their hearts instead of their hands, or who hoard because they fear what the future may bring. Truett Cathy Quote Details

More quotes about:

Money is like gasoline during a road trip. You don't want to run out of gas on your trip, but you're not doing a tour of gas stations. You have to pay attention to money, but it shouldn't be about the money. Tim O'Reilly Quote Details

More quotes about:

There is an excellent correlation between giving society what it wants and making money, and almost no correlation between the desire to make money and how much money one makes. Ray Dalio Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

I have been very lucky because I have had the opportunity to see what it's like to have little or no money and what it's like to have a lot of it. I'm lucky because people make such a big deal of it and, if I didn't experience both, I wouldn't be able to know how important it really is for me. I can't comment on what having a lot of money means to others, but I do know that for me, having a lot more money isn't a lot better than having enough to cover the basics. That's because, for me, the best things in life — meaningful work, meaningful relationships, interesting experiences, good food, sleep, music, ideas, sex, and other basic needs and pleasures — are not, past a certain point, materially improved upon by having a lot of money. Ray Dalio Quote Details

More quotes about:

If a person's scale of values is based primarily on material wealth, that person will be in difficulty all of his or her life. Do not pay much attention to fame, power and money. Some day you will meet a person who cares for none of these, and then you will know how poor you are. Rudyard Kipling Quote Details
