Sayings Worth Saving - Our Favorite Finance Quotes and Words of Wisdom (Technorati) Technorati | (Del.icio.us) Del.icio.us | (Digg) Digg | (Blinklist) Blinklist | (Comment) Comments (6)

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.

So what quotes guide your financial decisions? What figures, whether from the past or present, have shed the most light on this potentially confusing topic for you? And what did they say? We at 22Dollars.com would love to hear your thoughts!

Katherine,
One of my favorite investing quotes and one that I find helps to trade better (less on emotion) is

Always Wrong, but Never in Doubt

This quote I got from my friend David Gordon and it has helped me become a better investor.

Might I also quote Mr. Warren Buffett

Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1

and

The business schools reward difficult complex behavior more than simple behavior, but simple behavior is more effective.

Just a couple of my favorites.

Maya Angelou said: “You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you.”

It's one of my favorite quotes because I think that it's important to make money in our society but not if it means you're working all day at a job you don't enjoy.

Interesting opinion. However, is stock analysis always subjective? Can it be objective as well?

There is this website that supposedly gives the best trending stocks in the stock market. Do you think this website is a good tool to use in stock analysis?

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, yet expecting different results." - I love this quote. It reminds me everyday to keep it fresh. To take the road less traveled. Everyone is doing the same thing and everyone is broke. So to not be broke (ie RICH) I need to go the opposite direction. Thanks for the opportunity.

I guess I tend to live by 'Every penny counts' as I feel that even a small saving can help in the long term. I also love 'never spend your money before you have it' and always stick to that one although I had never heard the quotation before.
