Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.
* Woody Allen
One must choose, in life, between making money and spending it. There's no time to do both.
* Edouard Bourdet
Money has a power above
The stars and fate, to manage love:
Whose arrows, learned poets hold,
That never miss, are tipped with gold.
* Samuel Butler
Money is to my social existence what health is to my body.
* Mason Cooley
A moderate addiction to money may not always be hurtful; but when taken in excess it is nearly always bad for the health.
* Clarence Day
The value of a dollar is social, as it is created by society.
* Ralph Waldo Emerson
Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses.
* Ralph Waldo Emerson
Of mortals there is no one who is happy.
If wealth flows in upon one, one may be perhaps
Luckier than one's neighbor, but still not happy.
Sir, money, money, the most charming of all things; money, which will say more in one moment than the most elegant lover can in years. Perhaps you will say a man is not young; I answer he is rich. He is not genteel, handsome, witty, brave, good-humoured, but he is rich, rich, rich, rich, rich--that one word contradicts everything you can say against him.
* Henry Fielding
Never ask of money spent
Where the spender thinks it went.
Nobody was ever meant
To remember or invent
What he did with every cent.
* Robert Frost
Money is time. With money I buy for cheerful use the hours which otherwise would not in any sense be mine; nay, which would make me their miserable bondsman.
* George Gissing
If a man has money, it is usually a sign, too, that he knows how to take care of it; don't imagine his money is easy to get simply because he has plenty of it.
* Edgar Watson Howe
With money in your pocket, you are wise and you are handsome and you sing well too.
* Yiddish Proverb
There are few sorrows, however poignant, in which a good income is of no avail.
* Logan Pearsall Smith
There was a time when a fool and his money were soon parted, but now it happens to everybody.
* Adlai Stevenson
Money is only useful when you get rid of it. It is like the odd card in "Old Maid"; the player who is finally left with it has lost.
* Evelyn Waugh
It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.
* Oscar Wilde
