FRUGALITY
[ Also see Abstinence Avarice Bargain Caution Conservation Economy Extravagance Forethought Meanness Misers Money Poverty Providence Prudence Self-denial Spending Temperance Thrift ]

By sowing frugality we reap liberty, a golden harvest.
      - Agesilaus, the Great

Economy is for the poor; the rich may dispense with it.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Frugality is founded on the principle that all riches have limits.
      - Edmund Burke

The world has not yet learned the riches of frugality.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Economy is the method by which we prepare today to afford the improvements of tomorrow.
      - Calvin Coolidge

How frugal is the chariot that bears a human soul.
      - Emily Dickinson

A man often pays dear for a small frugality.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The cheapness of man is every day's tragedy.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The petty economics of the rich are just as amazing as the silly extravagances of the poor.
      - William Feather

He that spareth in everything is an inexcusable niggard. He that spareth in nothing is an inexcusable madman. The mean is to spare in what is least necessary, and to lay out more liberally in what is most required in our several circumstances.
      - Charles Montagu Halifax, Lord Halifax

Economy is going without something you do want in case you should, some day, want something you probably won't want.
      - Anthony Hope (pseudonym of Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins)

Frugality may be termed the daughter of prudence, the sister of temperance, and the parent of liberty.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

He seldom lives frugally who lives by chance. Hope is always liberal, and they that trust her promises make littler scruple of revelling to-day on the profits of to-morrow.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Without economy none can be rich, and with it few can be poor.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Frugality is good if liberality be joined with it. The first is leaving off superfluous expenses; the last is bestowing them to the benefit of others that need. The first without the last begets covetousness; the last without the first begets prodigality.
      - William Penn

The regard one shows economy, is like that we show an old aunt who is to leave us something at last.
      - William Shenstone
