The way to wealth, if you desire it, is as plain as the way to market. It depends chiefly on two words, industry and frugality; i.e. waste neither time nor money, but make the best use of both. He that gets all he can honestly, and saves all he gets (necessary expenses excepted), will certainly become rich. Benjamin Franklin Quote Details

More quotes about:

The gratification of wealth is not found in mere possession or in lavish expenditure, but in its wise application. Miguel de Cervantes Quote Details

More quotes about:

The old thought that one cannot be rich except at the expense of his neighbor must pass away. True prosperity adds to the richness of the whole world, such as that of the man who makes two trees grow where only one grew before. The parasitical belief in prosperity as coming by the sacrifices of others has no place in the mind that thinks true.

"My benefit is your benefit, your success is my success," should be the basis of all our wealth.
Anne Miltz Quote Details

More quotes about:

Truth is, money doesn't make you happy or a nice person, it just means you have the means to live the life you want. What kind of life is up to you, and that's where some people crash and burn. They get money but they don't have a clue about being a good person so they just make themselves and everyone around them miserable. Phil Town Quote Details

More quotes about:

What difference does it make how much there is laid away in a man's safe or in his barns, how many head of stock he grazes or how much capital he puts out at interest, if he is always after what is another's and only counts what he has yet to get, never what he has already. You ask what is the proper limit to a person's wealth? First, having what is essential, and second, having what is enough. Seneca Quote Details

More quotes about:

No man can tell whether he is rich or poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich according to what he is, not according to what he has. Henry Ward Beecher Quote Details

More quotes about:

We must teach our children not to spend their money a dollar at a time. If you spend your money a dollar at a time, you'll wind up with trinkets instead of treasures. You can't buy much of value a dollar at a time. Jim Rohn Quote Details

More quotes about:

People with a scarcity mentality think there is only so much in the world to go around. It's as if they see life as a pie. When another person gets a big piece, then they get less. Such people are always trying to get even, to pull others down to their level so they can get an equal or even bigger piece of the pie. Stephen Covey Quote Details

More quotes about:

Pay your taxes first, yourself second, and everyone else after that. Larry Winget Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

The strongest bond of human sympathy outside the family relation should be one uniting all working people of all nations and tongues and kindreds. Nor should this lead us to a war on property, or the owners of property. Property is the fruit of labor; property is desirable; is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Abraham Lincoln Quote Details

More quotes about:

Prefer loss to the wealth of dishonest gain; the former vexes you for a time; the latter will bring you lasting remorse. Chilo Quote Details

More quotes about:

Wealth is not a given or an accident of history. It is not bestowed on us like rain from above. It is the product of human creativity in an environment of freedom. The freedom to own, to make contracts, to save, to invest, to associate, and to trade: these are the key to prosperity. Lew Rockwell Quote Details

More quotes about:

A lean purse is easier to cure than endure. George Clason Quote Details

More quotes about:

Ordinary riches can be stolen; real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you. Oscar Wilde Quote Details

More quotes about:

The only way to increase everyone's standard of living is by increasing the amount of capital per worker. Additional capital makes workers more productive, which means they can produce more goods than before. When our economy becomes physically capable of producing vastly more goods, their abundance makes them more affordable in terms of dollars (if the Federal Reserve isn't inflating the money supply). Soaking the rich works for only so long: the rich eventually wise up and decide to hide their income, move away, or stop working so much. But investing in capital makes everyone better off. It is the only way we can all become wealthier. We are wealthier today because our economy is physically capable of producing so much more at far lower costs. And that's why, just from a practical point of view, it is foolish to levy taxes along any step of this process, because doing so sabotages the only way wealth can be created for everyone. Ron Paul Quote Details

Determine value apart from price; progress apart from activity; wealth apart from size. Charlie Munger Quote Details

More quotes about:

Wealth, like anything else, has a point of diminishing returns. Furthermore, that point arrives sooner than the non-wealthy think. John T. Reed Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

Anyone entering our homes should admire us rather than our furnishings. It is a great man that can treat his earthenware as if it was silver, and a man who treats his silver as if it was earthenware is no less great. Finding wealth an intolerable burden is the mark of an unstable mind. Seneca Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

Suppose he has a beautiful home and a handsome collection of servants, a lot of land under cultivation and a lot of money out at interest; not one of these things can be said to be in him - they are just things around him. Praise in him what can neither be given nor snatched away, what is peculiarly a man's. You ask what that is? It is his spirit, and the perfection of his reason in that spirit. For man is a rational animal. Man's ideal state is realized when he has fulfilled the purpose for which he was born. And what is it that reason demands of him? Something very easy - that he live in accordance with his own nature. Seneca Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

But first we have to reject the life of pleasures; they make us soft and womanish; they are insistent in their demands, and what is more, require us to make insistent demands on fortune. And then we need to look down on wealth, which is the wage of slavery. Gold and silver and everything else that clutters our prosperous homes should be discarded. Freedom cannot be won without sacrifice. If you set a high value on her, everything else must be valued at little. Seneca 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 secret of creating riches for oneself is to create them for others. John Templeton Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

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
