Holiday Humour #1: Quotes about Money

I'm officially on a holiday for the next two weeks and so will probably not blog, although you never know.

Therefore, in the spirit of keeping in touch with my favourite subject – money – I'm going to leave a few musings, or amuse bouche thoughts if you prefer, about this over the next two weeks instead.

Starting today with some of my favourite quotes about cash.

have much more or much less than you.”

Katherine Whitehorn

“The rich man and his daughter are soon parted.”

Kin Hubbard

“That money talks, I’ll not deny.  I heard it once: it said, ‘Goodbye’.”

Richard Armour

“If you would know what the Lord God thinks of money, you
have only to look at those to whom he gives it.”

“Money won’t buy happiness, but it will pay the salaries of
a large research staff to study the problem.”

“There are two times in a man’s life when he should not
speculate: when he can’t afford it and when he can.”

was to pay my American Express Bill.”

once, and put it in your pocket.”

I buy something.”

as I die about four o’clock this afternoon.”

of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks in. The others are
July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August
and February.”

expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday didn't
happen today.”

Laurence J. Peter
