Value of money

The other man that is quoted the most, and even more than Henry Ford in the category of money is Benjamin Franklin who provided 8 different quotes for my business book, so I’m going to share two short ones:

The first is some great advice from uncle Ben, “Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.”

And the second quote from him is, “Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness.”

I remember once reading something about this same idea – that money itself – in any form, paper, coin, gold bar – was only the thing, it was neutral – it was only the value we placed upon it that gave it any power.

And another money oxymoron by  Artemus Ward, “Let us all be happy, and live within our means, even if we have to borrow the money to do it with.”
