There was a time when a fool and his money were soon parted, but now it happens to everybody.
Adlai E. Stevenson quotes
Corporations have been enthroned. An era of corruption in high places will follow and the money power will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people...until wealth is aggregated in a few hands...and the Republic is destroyed.
Abraham Lincoln quotes
Men make counterfeit money; in many more cases, money makes counterfeit men.
Sydney J. Harris quotes
They never say to you, 'What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?' Instead, they demand 'How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make?' Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery quotes
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Roger Babson quotes
A wise man should have money in his head, but not in his heart.
Jonathan Swift quotes
To withhold deserved praise lest it should make its object conceited is as dishonest as to withhold payment of a just debt lest your creditor should spend the money badly.
George Bernard Shaw quotes
It is more rewarding to watch money change the world than watch it accumulate.
Gloria Steinem quotes
I am absolutely convinced that no wealth in the world can help humanity forward, even in the hands of the most devoted worker. The example of great and pure individuals is the only thing that can lead us to noble thoughts and deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and irresistibly invites abuse. Can anyone imagine Moses, Jesus or Ghandi armed with the money-bags of Carnegie?
Albert Einstein quotes
History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it.
Robert Heinlein quotes
