How do you feel about money?

The theme this week is money.


I didn’t realize when I selected it how many quotes – and of so many various opinions there were on the subject.

At first I was overwhelmed so I asked myself, “What was my theme behind the money theme?”


The reason it was included is because when looking through my books on quotes I saw an abundance to choose from.

Then as I settled down to decide which ones to use it became apparent that there are huge differences in opinion about money, so it makes even more sense to tackle the subject.

Especially since I have differences in opinion about  money myself.


So I’ve selected a sampling of quotes about money.

As I share these quotes with you I challenge you to think about how you think about money.


The first quote is just for fun and comes from Mark Twain who said,


“His money is twice tainted: ‘taint yours and ‘taint mine.”


Now for a thoughtful quote.

Henrik Ibsen said,


“Money may be the husk of many things, but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; days of joy, but not peace or happiness.


For me this meant that money is needed for things that are needed.

The deeper life I live has nothing to do with money.


It has to do with appetite, health, friends, peace and happiness. I am rich!


You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!

Go make it a Magnificent Day!


Blessings, Shawna

  1. Great thoughts about something we need…and may not like to think about…

  2. It’s nice to see others questioning the nature of money. You may find Marx’s theories on exchange and use value particularly interesting if you really want to learn more. Also:

    • As I went through the pictures of money to include this week I had the opportunity to ask myself, “How do I feel or how would I feel with all that cash I’m viewing?” The answer was – no different – glad I took the self test!
      Thanks for your comment! Blessings, Shawna

      • Money has its uses but it’s been shown by pretty much every reputable psychological experiment over the last few years that once a certain level of subsistence is achieved the correlation between wealth and happiness drops off. Hence the US’s ‘happiness’ ranking not increasing over the last several decades despite continuous increases in GNP per capita.
