Money

Money has lots of tangles in our thinking, as you will see in the following inspirational quotes. Is it a good thing? Is money a bad thing? Why do we want money? That is the question. Prosperity tends make us happier and fuller.

I want money just as other people do. I want it so I can feel safe from poverty. I want it so that I can do the things I want. I want it so that I can be my best self – so that I can get more education, take more courses, travel, support causes, and most of all so that I don’t get caught in survival thinking.

What I find however, is that I can have things I want, have incredible life experiences, and meet wonderful people, and that the universe brings these things to me sometimes instead of money, and I am quite happy about that.

      Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. . . Instead of its filling a vacuum, it makes one. If it satisfies one want, it doubles and trebles that want another way.
      -Benjamin Franklin

      It is a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.
      -Albert Camus

      “Like Franklin says in the opening quote, the more we have, the more we tend to want. I read that when John D. Rockefeller, the riches man of his times, was asked what would make him happy, he retorted, “One dollar more.”
      -M.J. Ryan

      “Money has a perverse habit of evading those who chase it too hard, and of snuggling up to folks who are partially unmindful to it.”
      -Bruce Barton, 1928

      “Get money – but stop once in a while to figure what it is costing you to get it. No man gets it without giving something in return. The wise man gives his labor and ability. The fool gives his life.”
      -Bruce Barton
