Money Quotes A-Z by Author Money Quotations A-Z by Author

We have always believed that it’s possible to make money without being evil.
Larry Page - Google - Money - Evil

We have always tried to concentrate on the long term, and to place bets on technology we believe will have a significant impact over time. It’s hard to imagine now, but when we started Google most people thought search was a solved problem and that there was no money to be made apart from some banner advertising. We felt the exact opposite: that search quality was very poor, and that awesome user experiences would clearly make money.
Larry Page - Google - Internet - Money - Search - Technology - Focus - Advertising

I think the money that I've got is a consequence of the activities I've been doing and the interests that I've had in my life. I've never set out to make a lot of money..
Clive Palmer - Money - Life - Wealth


I've got enough money in my life to retire now and do nothing. But I've got a duty and obligation to see if we can create more jobs in this state, and the government's got an obligation to approve projects and to assess them for the benefit of the people of Queensland.
Clive Palmer - People - Australia - Politics - Money - Rich - Responsibility - Government - Obligation - Retirement


If you’re really serious about protecting people’s incomes, you’ve got to consider how you’re going to protect the dollar. If you don’t have the dollar maintaining its value, no matter where you put the money you’re not going to have any value.
Ron Paul - Income - Money - Dollar - Value

First reason is, it's not authorized in the Constitution, it's an illegal institution. The second reason, it's an immoral institution, because we have delivered to a secretive body the privilege of creating money out of thin air; if you or I did it, we'd be called counterfeiters, so why have we legalized counterfeiting? But the economic reasons are overwhelming: the Federal Reserve is the creature that destroys value. (Ron Paul talking about why the Federal Reserve shouldn't exist)
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Economy - Money - Secretive - Value - Constitution - Illegal - Counterfeit - Destructive

We’re bankrupting our country and we have an empire that we’re trying to defend which costs us $1 trillion a year. And the standard of living is going down today. It’s going down and the middle class is hurting because of the monetary policy. When you destroy a currency, the middle class gets wiped out.
Ron Paul - American - Military - Dollar - Money - Bankrupt - Monetary Policy - Currency - Middle Class

From the Great Depression, to the stagflation of the seventies, to the current economic crisis caused by the housing bubble, every economic downturn suffered by this country over the past century can be traced to Federal Reserve policy. The Fed has followed a consistent policy of flooding the economy with easy money, leading to a misallocation of resources and an artificial 'boom' followed by a recession or depression when the Fed-created bubble bursts.
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Economy - Money - Depression - Stagflation - Policy - Boom - Bust - Recession - Bubble

The Fed has one power that is unique to it alone: it enables the creation of money out of thin air. Sometimes it makes vast new amounts. Sometimes it makes lesser amounts. The money takes a variety of forms and enters the system in various ways. And the Fed does this through techniques such as open-market operations, changing reserve ratios, and manipulating interest rates, operations that all result in money creation.
Ron Paul - Fed - Money - Dollar - Power - Interest Rates

When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans. Deficits mean future tax increases, pure and simple. Deficit spending should be viewed as a tax on future generations, and politicians who create deficits should be exposed as tax hikers.
Ron Paul - American - Government - Spending - Economy - Debt - Money - Monetary Policy - Taxes - Borrow - Politicians

We are talking about an awesome power. It is the power to weave illusions that appear real as long as they last. That is the very core of the Fed's power.
Of course not everyone is instinctively against this illusion-weaving power, and many even welcome it. Tragically, the innocent who understand little about the complexity of the monetary system suffer the most, while those who are in the know reap great profit whether the market is going up or down.
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Economy - Money - Power - Monetary Policy - Profits - Illusion

What's happening is, there's transfer of wealth from the poor and the middle class to the wealthy. This comes about because of the monetary system that we have. When y
ou inflate a currency or destroy a currency, the middle class gets wiped out. So the people who get to use the money first which is created by the Federal Reserve system benefit. So the money gravitates to the banks and to Wall Street. That's why you have more billionaires than ever before.
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Economy - Money - Banks - Currency - Wealth - Middle Class - Poor - Inflation - Billionaire - Wall Street

As bank customers, we tend to believe that we can have both perfect security for our money, drawing on it whenever we want and never expecting it not to be there, while still earning a regular rate of return. In a true free market, however, there tends to be a tradeoff: you can enjoy a money warehouse or you can hope for a return on your investment. You can't usually have both. The Fed, however, by backing up this fractional-reserve system with a promise of endless bailouts and money creation, attempts to keep the illusion going.
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Banks - Money - Customers - Free Market - Investment - Illusion


A weak currency is the sign of a weak economy, and a weak economy leads to a weak nation.
Ross Perot - Capitalism - Money - Finance

You don't appreciate a lot of stuff in school until you get older. Little things like being spanked every day by a middle-aged woman: Stuff you pay good money for in later life.
Emo Philips -
Funny - School - Money

We’ve got all these politicians talking about better health care and what all, but believe me, we’re not going to have the money to take care of sick people.. or anyone else as far as I’m concerned.. if we don’t fix our energy problem right now. I’ve got an idea what to do. It might not be a perfect idea, but hell, none of my best ideas have been perfect.
T. Boone Pickens - Politicians - Health - Money - Energy - Oil - Problems - Ideas - Perfect

We are now spending half a trillion dollars on foreign oil, importing 62 percent of the oil we use, and we haven’t had the leadership in D.C. to do anything about it. We've got to move to other sources of energy. But we’ve gotten way behind, and will continue to pay the fiddler. It’s not a good future.
T. Boone Pickens - Politicians - Money - Energy - Oil - Dollar - Washington - Leadership - USA

A dollar is not worth as much as you think it is. Your honesty is worth much more.
T. Boone Pickens - Money - Dollar - Honesty - Values

I don’t go looking for somewhere to spend my money. You can step on a tube of toothpaste for a week, if you have to. I spend what I need to and give it away.
T. Boone Pickens - Money - Philanthropy - Frugality

Given the current state of our finances, we could sure use a quarter of a trillion dollars a year recycling through the U.S. economy rather than through the economies of Iran, Russia, and Venezuela.
T. Boone Pickens - Money - Oil - Dollar - USA - Finance - Economy
- Russia - Iran - Venezuela

We need to make a game out of earning money. There is so much good we can do with money. Without it, we are bound and shackled and our choices become limited.
Bob Proctor - Earnings - Money - Good - Decisions - Poverty

I think earning money is the simplest thing in the world once you learn how to do it. It’s like driving a car. It’s simple if you know how to do it.
Bob Proctor - Earnings - Money - Learning - Optimistic

Money is only used for two things. One, it’s to make you comfortable, and the more comfortable you are the more creative you will become. And the other purpose is it enables you to extend the service you provide far beyond your own presence.
Bob Proctor - Money - Creativity - Growth

Money will make you more of what you already are. If you're not a nice person, money’s going to make you a despicable individual. If you're a good person, money’s going to make you a better person.
Bob Proctor - Money - People - Good

Money made through dishonest practices will not last long.
Chinese Proverbs - Money - Dishonesty -


Many of the biggest and most far-reaching investments we make in our lives are investments that have little or nothing to do with money.
Daniel Quinn - Investing -
Life - Money

We learned early on that if we help enough people, the money will come.
Dave Ramsey - Learning - Money - People

I came to realize that my money problems, worries, and shortages largely began and ended with the person in my mirror. I realized also that if I could learn to manage the character I shaved with every morning, I would win with money.
Dave Ramsey - Learning - Problems - Money - Responsibility

After losing everything, I went on a quest to find out how money really works, how I could get control of it, and how I could have confidence in handling it.
Dave Ramsey - Poverty - Problems - Money - Mistakes

Debt has become a part of who we are.
Dave Ramsey - Money - Finance

I am convinced that material things can contribute a lot to making one's life pleasant, but, basically, if you do not have very good friends and relatives who matter to you, life will be really empty and sad and material things cease to be important.
David Rockefeller - Wealth - Money - Friends - Important - Family - Sad - Material - Pleasant - Life - Prosperity

Having been endowed with the gift I possess, I believe it is my duty to make money and still more money and to use the money I make for the good of my fellow man according to the dictates of my conscience.
John D. Rockefeller - Gift - Money
- Giving - Charity - Philanthropy

I believe it is a religious duty to get all the money you can, fairly and honestly; to keep all you can, and to give away all you can.
John D. Rockefeller - Money - Giving - Charity - Philanthropy - Honesty - Fairly


Unlike the days of the gold standard, it is impossible for the Federal Reserve to go bankrupt; it holds the legal monopoly of counterfeiting (of creating money out of thin air) in the entire country.
Murray Rothbard - Fraud - Gold -
Federal Reserve - Bankrupt - Money - Monopoly

If government manages to establish paper tickets or bank credit as money, as equivalent to gold grams or ounces, then the government, as dominant money-supplier, becomes free to create money costlessly and at will. As a result, this 'inflation' of the money supply destroys the value of the dollar or pound, drives up prices, cripples economic calculation, and hobbles and seriously damages the workings of the market economy.
Murray Rothbard - Inflation - Government -
Gold - Money - Dollar - Value - Economy - Pound - Currency

Having examined the nature of fractional reserve and of central banking, and having seen how the questionable blessings of Central Banking were fastened upon America, it is time to see precisely how the Fed, as presently constituted, carries out its systemic inflation and its control of the American monetary system.
Murray Rothbard - Fraud - Inflation -
America - Federal Reserve - Money - Banks - Central Bank - Fiat Money

At the base of the Fed pyramid, and therefore of the bank system's creation of "money" in the sense of deposits, is the Fed's power to print legal tender money. But the Fed tries its best not to print cash but rather to "print" or create demand deposits, checking deposits, out of thin air, since its demand deposits constitute the reserves on top of which the commercial banks can pyramid a multiple creation of bank deposits, or "checkbook money."
Murray Rothbard - Federal Reserve - Central Bank -
Money - Banks - Power - Fiat Money

Governments have persistently tried their best to promote, encourage, and expand the circulation of bank and government paper, and to discourage the people’s use of gold itself.
Murray Rothbard - Money - Government -
Banks - Central Bank - Gold - Encouragement - Currency - Fiat Money - Manipulation

I want to make it clear what I am not saying. I am not saying that fiat money, once established on the ruins of gold, cannot then continue indefinitely on its own.
Murray Rothbard - Gold - Money -
Fiat Money

To those advocates of independent paper moneys who also champion the free market, I would address this simple question: “Why don’t you advocate the unlimited freedom of each individual to manufacture dollars?” If dollars are really and properly things-in-themselves, why not let everyone manufacture them as they manufacture wheat and baby food?
Murray Rothbard - Free Market - Money -
Dollar - Fiat Money - Freedom - Manufacturing

Money is different from all other commodities: other things being equal, more shoes, or more discoveries of oil or copper benefit society, since they help alleviate natural scarcity. But once a commodity is established as a money on the market, no more money at all is needed. Since the only use of money is for exchange and reckoning, more dollars or pounds or marks in circulation cannot confer a social benefit: they will simply dilute the exchange value of every existing dollar or pound or mark.
Murray Rothbard - Gold - Money -
Dollar - Pound - Economy - Currency - Oil - Inflation

They (the Rothschilds) have never dreamed of being ashamed of their wealth nor of disguising their way of life, no more than they have ever failed to assume their roles and responsibilities as Jews.
Guy de Rothschild - Jewish -
Wealth - Rich - Money - Responsibility

According to an old French motto, Noblesse oblige - one must live up to one's name. The Rothschilds' condition of life has imposed on them a second motto: Richesse oblige - one must live up to one's fortune.
Guy de Rothschild - Wealth -
France - Family

I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.
Colonel Sanders - Hard Work - Determination - Money - Winning - Best

There's no reason to be the richest man in the cemetery. You can't do any business from there.
Colonel Sanders - Business - Money - Rich - Death

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 Schwab - Money - Work - Life -

Lack of money is the root of all evil.
George Bernard Shaw - Money - Poverty

If you do the right job then money will come to you. Because people who need you will request, will ask for you, will attract you, and will be willing to pay you for your services.
Jose Silva - Jobs - Money
- People

I don’t believe in talking about my work. I let it speak for itself. I’d rather make money than just talk about my business. People think that because I don’t talk much to the media, I am arrogant. I am not arrogant, but I do have an attitude.
Shailendra Singh - Media - Work - Money
- Business - Attitude

Philanthropy is all about making a positive difference in the world by devoting your resources and your time to causes you believe in. In my case, I like to support causes where "a lot of good comes from a little bit of good," or, in other words, where the positive social returns vastly exceed the amount of time and money invested.
Jeff Skoll - Philanthropy - Positive - World - Belief - Social - Money - Change

The main difference between me and other people who have amassed this kind of money is that I am primarily interested in ideas, and I don't have much personal use for money.
George Soros - Money - Ideas

In 2012, the far-right Golden Dawn won 21 seats in Greece’s parliamentary election, the right-wing Jobbik gained ground in my native Hungary, and the National Front’s Marine Le Pen received strong backing in France’s presidential election. Growing support for similar forces across Europe points to an inescapable conclusion: the continent’s prolonged financial crisis is creating a crisis of values that is now threatening the European Union itself.
George Soros - Europe - Finance - Money - Crisis - Greece - France

The only way of making money is for effort. The only time I've ever lost money is when I've purposely said, "I'm doing this to make money." And I've actually on three occasions lost significant sums. I have made wealth when I've actually made a contribution to something, when I've done something I thought I could do better than somebody else or have done something better than somebody else does it.
Kerry Stokes - Losing - Money - Wealth
- Hard Work

We no longer see the world as a single entity. We’ve moved to cities and we think the economy is what gives us our life, that if the economy is strong we can afford garbage collection and sewage disposal and fresh food and water and electricity. We go through life thinking that money is the key to having whatever we want, without regard to what it does to the rest of the world.
David Suzuki - Environmental - Consumer - World - Economy - Social - Life - Money

I made a little money. And like the Bible says, I was enjoying the fruits of my labor. This is my comeback. This is me doing what I love to do.
Mr T - Money
- Love - Enjoyment

Some foreign investors accuse us of being unfair to shareholders by using our resources for community development. Yes, this is money that could have made for dividend payouts, but it also is money that’s uplifting and improving the quality of life of people in the rural areas where we operate and work. We owe them that.
Ratan Tata - India - Tata Group - Foreign Investment - Shareholder - Community - Money - Dividend - Rural

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.
Mother Teresa - Inspirational - Love - Philanthropy - Money

All my money has been invested into experiments with which I have made new discoveries enabling mankind to have a little easier life.
Nikola Tesla - Money - Research - Experiment

The present moment has always been available to spiritual seekers, but as long as you are seeking you are not available to the present moment. "Seeking" implies that you are looking to the future for some answer, or for some achievement, spiritual or otherwise. Everybody is in the seeking mode, seeking to add something to who they are, whether it be money, relationships, possessions, knowledge, status.. or spiritual attainment.
Eckhart Tolle - Now - Spiritual - Achievement - Money - Relationships - Knowledge - Assets

Truly wealthy people develop the habit of “getting rich slow” rather than “getting rich quick.” To assure this, they have two rules with regard to money. Rule number one: Don’t lose money. Rule number two: If ever you feel tempted, refer back to rule number one, “don’t lose money.”
Brian Tracy - Wealth - Rich - Money - Loss

I don’t have to believe in Feng Shui, I do it because it makes me money.
Donald Trump - Feng Shui - Money - Belief

I made a tremendous amount of money on real estate. I'll take real estate rather than go to Wall Street and get 2.8 percent. Forget about it.
Ivana Trump - Real Estate - Money - Stock Market

I make money because I have to pay for everything apart from my school fees. My mother even makes me pay my own telephone bill.
Ivanka Trump - Money - Responsibility

As I started getting rich, I started thinking, 'what the hell am I going to do with all this money?'... You have to learn to give.
Ted Turner - Philanthropy - Money - Rich

Over a three year period, I gave away half of what I had. To be honest, my hands shook as I signed it away. I knew I was taking myself out of the race to be the richest man in the world.
Ted Turner - Philanthropy - Money - Rich

War has been good to me from a financial standpoint but I don't want to make money that way. I don't want blood money.
Ted Turner - War - Money

The lack of money is the root of all evil.
Mark Twain - Money - Lack - Evil

It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.
Oscar Wilde - Life - Money

It's not just the emotional, intellectual, and physical gaps between you and money. The real gap is always between what you think you want and what you actually want, deep down.
Stuart Wilde - Intelligent - Money - Thinking

There is no amount of money in the world that will make you comfortable if you are not comfortable with yourself.
Stuart Wilde - Rich - Money - Self

Money is just a symbol we use to facilitate te gathering of memories and experiences.
Stuart Wilde - Money


You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it.
Oprah Winfrey - Work - Money - Success

It's much easier for me to make major life, multi-million dollar decisions, than it is to decide on a carpet for my front porch. That's the truth.
Oprah Winfrey - Life - Decisions - Money

What material success does is provide you with the ability to concentrate on other things that really matter. And that is being able to make a difference, not only in your own life, but in other people's lives.
Oprah Winfrey - Life - Success - Money

You have to earn money the hard way. Because no-one will serve it up to you on a silver platter.

Las Vegas is sort of like how God would do it if he had money.
Steve Wynn - Money - God

The question is not do you take money out of stocks and put it into real estate, or the reverse. There's so much money out there looking for a home. I don't think it's either/or.
Sam Zell - Real Estate - Questions - Money - Stocks - Investments

Money isn't the most important thing in life, but it's reasonably close to oxygen on the "gotta have it" scale.
Zig Ziglar - Money - Life - Priorities


It's not because of the amount of money. For me and my colleagues, the most important thing is that we create an open information flow for people. Having media corporations owned by conglomerates is just not an attractive idea to me.
Mark Zuckerberg - Sharing - Facebook - Media - Money - Conglomerate - Important
