10 Wise Quotes About Money


1.      You can be young without money but you can't be old without it.
Tennessee Williams

When you are young, you are fit and strong and you can be gainfully employed. When you are old, you are weak and frail and you cannot work anymore. You need to live with your retirement fund for your golden years.  If you don’t start saving early for your old age, life will be miserable.

2.      Lack of money is no obstacle. Lack of an idea is an obstacle.
Ken Hakuta

All you need in life is a unique idea which others are looking for. It can be in the form of products or services. You give others what they want and you will be able to build your wealth.   

3.      Never spend your money before you have it.
Thomas Jefferson

Living on credit is not a wise thing to do. You pay more than by paying in cash and you may not be able to honor your debt and end up as a bankrupt.

4.      It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven't lost the things that money can't buy.
George Horace Lorimer

Do not just think of money, there are other important things in life to take care of such as your health which money cannot buy.

5.      Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.
Henry Ford

 You don’t look for money directly. How much you can get is proportional to how much you can give  to others in the forms of services or products.

6.      Money will buy you a bed, but not a good night's sleep, a house but not a home, a companion but not a friend
Zig Ziglar

Money can buy you only material things, all other things you have to earn it like your reputation and the trust of others in you.

7.      He who gathers money little by little makes it grow. [Proverbs 13:11].

The starting point to build wealth is savings. When it is done regularly over a period of time, compound interest will grow your money.  

8.      The man who does not work for the love of work but only for money is not likely to make money nor find much fun in life.
Charles M. Schwab

 You must like and enjoy what you do. You are paid for what you can do for others by using your               skills and know-how. The more you care about what you do, the better your work will be and the more  money you will be able to earn. You can’t get money without putting in effort to work and give your best.

9.      Money is a good servant but a bad master. 

When you manage your personal finance effectively, you will grow your wealth. When you cannot discipline yourself and you overspend, you will get into debt. You will be a servant to the lender.

10.  Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like.
 Will Smith

It is prudent to live your own life within your means. Do not compare with others. There will always be others who are richer than you. Be contented, happy and debt free.

  1. These quotes put a smile on my face. There's truth in all of them. I like the quotes of Henry Ford and Zig Ziglar. And I admire how they got to the top and obtain riches as by product of the services they have provided.

    It's just sad that many focus on money alone neglecting the important ones like friends, family, peace of mind and wonderful sleep.

    Best regards,
