John Wesley
“Do you not know that God entrusted you with that money (all above what buys necessities for your families) to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to help the stranger, the widow, the fatherless; and, indeed, as far as it will go, to relieve the wants of all mankind? How can you, how dare you, defraud the Lord, by applying it to any other purpose?”
John Wesley

Elizabeth Warren
“Balancing your money is the key to having enough.”
Elizabeth Warren

“Whomsoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”
James Garfield

Sheryl WuDunn
“...when women gain control over spending, less family money is devoted to instant gratification and more for education and starting small businesses.”
Sheryl WuDunn, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

Michael Dirda
“As book collectors know all too well: We only regret our economies, never our extravagances.”
Michael Dirda

“As soon as I had believed that financial security purchased emotional security, I'd lived a dependent, conditional life. Now I realize that rather than mortgage myself for a dream life on a layaway plan, I prefer the rather nice kind of life I've stumbled into. My desire for a double oven has less to do with signaling that I belong to a certain class or have reached a type of perfection and more to do with the fact that I haven't figured out how to make a pot roast and an apple pie at the same time. So I make the pie ahead of time and reheat it. I think it was Mark Twain who said, 'Happiness is wanting what you have, not having what you want.' I tell my kids this, hoping they will learn to balance the act of pursuing with the act of savoring.”
Liz Perle, Money, A Memoir: Women, Emotions, and Cash

Laird Barron
“Money was a problem. Money was always a problem no matter how many bones he crushed or how much blood he let or dues he paid. The fucking rent was always due.”
Laird Barron, The Light is the Darkness

Fred C. White
“Finances flow along the lines of relationships in the kingdom of God.”
Fred C. White, Walking in the Father's Riches: The Prosperity of Sonship

“The first principle to financial freedom is to spend less than you earn, but never deprive yourself to have those good vehicles,make those lake trips provided you don't fall in debts.You don't need to be rich to be financially successful, provided you don't worry when paying the bills and you have enough left in the bank”
Ekari Mtewa

“Money on its own is nothing but peace of paper, and a million kwacha's today maybe worth only two bags of Irish potatoes in 10 years time due to inflation. Don't keep your millions at the bank and boost that your rich, those are just papers, put them on the investments that covers for inflation as well.”
Ekari Mtewa

Patricia Grasso
“The money is mine, not yours,” Reginald reminded her. “You ungrateful wretch. I found you an earl to marry, and your son will be an earl.”
“You chose yourself a son-in-law,” Regina said. “You traded me for a title.”
“You will thank me—”
“—for dying and leaving me in peace.”
“You will regret those words some day.”
“I can manage the regret, if not my own finances.”
Patricia Grasso, Seducing the Prince

“If the world was perfect and smooth we would want to pay everything for cash and never need to get loans. But having any other loans apart from school loan and a mortgage is a huge mistake, these are the only loans which can give you tax breaks and an opportunity to use your monthly cash flow to invest or build savings”
Ekari Mtewa

Matthew Gallaway
“Like God, art seemed to hover over us, perhaps benevolent, and often sublime, but constantly, maddeningly out of reach.”
Matthew Gallaway, #Gods

Brandi L. Bates
“The most empowering thing you can do though is to create innovative ways to bring in livable wages. That begins with a debt free lifestyle.”
Brandi L. Bates, Moonshine For The Soul: A Path to Strength, Wisdom, Growth, Health & Happiness

Linda Tirado
“You grab a bit of connection wherever you can to survive. You have no idea how strong the pull to feel worthwhile is. It's more basic than food. You go to these people who make you feel lovely for an hour that one time, and that's all you get. You're probably not compatible with them for anything long term, but right this minute they can make you feel powerful and valuable. It does not matter what will happen in a month. Whatever happens in a month is probably going to be just about as indifferent as whatever happened today or last week. None of it matters. We don't plan long term because if we do we'll just get our hearts broken. It's best not to hope. You just take what you can get as you spot it.

I am not asking for sympathy. I am just trying to explain, on a human level, how it is that people make what look from the outside like awful decisions.


Linda Tirado, Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America

Orrin Woodward
“Most times, bankrupted finances is a reflection of bankrupted souls.”
Orrin Woodward

Debora Hooper
“... honor must precede honorariums.”
Debora Hooper, Hooper's Evangelist and Minister's Handbook

Simone Milasas
“When you are willing to be everything that you are, you become an infinitely creative source for everything in your life - including money.”
Simone Milasas, Getting Out of Debt Joyfully

“The power of our thoughts may never be measured or appreciated,
but it became obvious to me as a young boy that it was important
to be aware of my thoughts and how
I expressed myself.”
Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter

“For example, the citizens will live out the value of diligence in their enterprises. They will live out the value of prudence in their finances. They will live out the value of industry in the economy. They will live out the value of love in their neighbourhood. They will live out the value of dignity of labour in the market place, etc. All these will go a long way into propelling both the economy and political life of a nation to the greatest height possible.”
Sunday Adelaja

Christina Engela
“These mods made significant improvements to the cars – enough so that I changed my mind (another procedure altogether) every time I thought of selling the damn thing and buying a Toyota. I hope you benefit from this and preserve your ailing finances!
Good luck!”
Christina Engela, Bugspray

Kathryn Bruzas Hauer
“According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “in the last few years, student loan debt has hovered around the $1 trillion mark, becoming the second-largest consumer obligation after mortgages and invoking parallels with the housing bubble that precipitated the 2007–2009 recession…the proportion of the U.S. population with student loans increased from about 7 percent in 2003 to about 15 percent in 2012; in addition, over the same period, the average student loan debt for a 40-year-old borrower almost doubled, reaching a level of more than $30,000.” Grad students incur even more debt, and the salaries, especially in education, aren’t usually high enough to make that master’s degree (which is a great academic boost) a worthwhile return on investment financially. If it turns out that college isn’t for you or if problems prevent you from graduating, you can end up with lots of debt and no degree to show for it. Having hours toward college doesn’t qualify you for a job that requires a degree, so you could end up with the debt and without the necessary letters behind your name. In contrast, blue collar training requires fewer years and costs less than a college degree; in some fields, you learn on the job while being paid.”
Kathryn Bruzas Hauer, Financial Advice for Blue Collar America

Neala Okuromade
“Having guidelines to govern my financial decision-making processes is something I personally know the importance of. They should really be part of a person’s financial plan”
Neala Okuromade, What's Your Financial Game Plan? Workbook

“It's not a bargain if you can't afford it....even if it's on sale.”
