      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses.

The value of a dollar is to buy just things; a dollar goes on increasing in value with all the genius and all the virtue of the world.

      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Money is the wise man's religion.
      - Euripides

The highest use of capital is not to make more money, but to make money do more for the betterment of life.
      - Henry Ford

Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of its filling a vacuum, it makes one. If it satisfies one want, it doubles and trebles that want another way. That was a true proverb of the wise man, rely upon it: "Better is little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure, and trouble therewith."
      - Benjamin Franklin

The use of money is all the advantage there is in having money.
      - Benjamin Franklin

If you would know the value of money, go and try to borrow some.

      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Money is a necessity; so is dirt.
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

This bank-note world.
      - Fitz-Greene Halleck, Alnwick Castle

It is my opinion that a man's soul may be buried and perish under a dung-heap, or in a furrow of the field, just as well as under a pile of money.
      - Nathaniel Hawthorne

Money is the god of our time, and Rothschild is his prophet.
      - Heinrich Heine
