Sayings Worth Saving - Our Favorite Finance Quotes and Words of Wisdom
When it comes to money, everyone has something to say. Each person has an opinion, and these individual opinions can vary widely. From those that believe in high stakes investing to those that do not believe in investing at all, the things people say about finance can be quite different. But the bottom line is that everyone has something to say.
At the same time, finance can be one of the most difficult things to discuss, because it’s a very personal topic that links many of the things that make us who we are: our values, our emotions, our pride, our status, and how we make our living. However, throughout history many people have found a way to capture their sentiments about finance in ways that can help us all express our varied opinions on money, and have helped us learn a thing or two about this complex topic.
Benjamin Franklin gave us many examples such as, “a penny saved is a penny earned” and “early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” Thomas Jefferson would tell us, “never spend your money before you have it,” and Miguel de Cervantes would warn that, “all is not gold that glitters.” Those of you that read 22Dollars.com on a regular basis know that one of our favorite sayings are “no one care more about your money than you.” Each of these quotes provides a different way of looking at how we manage our money and provides some wisdom for us to live by.
