Welcome to this edition of the Best of Money Carnival; My Favorite Money Quotes Edition. I’ve gathered my favorite money quotes along with my favorite entries for this carnival. I hope you will enjoy it!

#10 “A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don’t need it.”

Bob Hope

Since I work in a bank, I find this one particularly funny… because it’s true ;-). The more money you have, the more the bank is willing to lend you some. However, if you are broke and have a fabulous idea, don’t bother asking the bank for financing ;-).

#9 “Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.”

Ayn Rand

Many individuals see money as a tool. I definitely agree with them as money can only become what you are doing with it.

#8 “A penny saved is a penny earned.”

#7 “My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.” – Errol Flynn

#6 “How are you going to pay for this?” “With Daddy’s plastic card!”

My son William

This was our first conversation about money. He wanted to buy chips and I asked him how he was going to pay for them. 1st answer was to give his sister’s necklace in exchange…

#5 “Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like.”

Will Smith

Too many times, money is used for the wrong purpose.

#4 “Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.”

Jim Rohn

It is with time that you can accomplish the most amazing things. I really wish I could buy more!
FMF presents How to Become Wealthy posted at Free Money Finance.

#3 “Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
Oscar Wilde.

I don’t think that Oscar meant that you should live above your means but to become more creative in order to not have to worry about your spending ;-).
Paul Williams presents Good Money Management Is About Avoiding Dumb Mistakes posted at Provident Planning.

#2 “I don’t like money but I surely like what I can do with it.”


Most people think I like money because I work in the financial industry add that I continually seek all the possible ways to make more money. The reality is that I don’t care about money, I just want the lifestyle that goes with it!

#1 Money doesn’t bring happiness… BS!
