“When you work on something that only has the capacity to make you 5 dollars, it does not matter how much harder you work – the most you will make is 5 dollars.”

Criss Jami
“Every job from the heart is, ultimately, of equal value. The nurse injects the syringe; the writer slides the pen; the farmer plows the dirt; the comedian draws the laughter. Monetary income is the perfect deceiver of a man's true worth.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Charles Dickens
“Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six , result happiness.
Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery”
Charles Dickens, David Copperfield

Thomas Sowell
“Despite a voluminous and often fervent literature on "income distribution," the cold fact is that most income is not distributed: It is earned.”
Thomas Sowell

“Eliminate the concept of division by class, skills, race, income, and nationality. We are all equals with a common pulse to survive. Every human requires food and water. Every human has a dream and desire to be happy. Every human responds to love, suffering and pain. Every human bleeds the same color and occupies the same world. Let us recognize that we are all part of each other. We are all human. We are all one.”
Suzy Kassem

“We need to eliminate the concept of division by class, skills, race, income, religion, and nationality. Every human requires food and water to survive and every human has a heart that bleeds, loves, and grieves.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Anthony Hope
“I have an income nearly sufficient for my wants (no one's income is ever quite sufficient, you know).”
Anthony Hope, The Prisoner of Zenda

Michael Moore
“It was the American middle class. No one's house cost more than two or three year's salary, and I doubt the spread in annual wages (except for the osteopath) exceeded more than five thousand dollars. And other than the doctor (who made house calls), the store managers, the minister, the salesman, and the banker, everyone belonged to a union. That meant they worked a forty-hour week, had the entire weekend off (plus two to four weeks' paid vacation in the summer), comprehensive medical benefits, and job security. In return for all that, the country became the most productive in the world and in our little neighborhood it meant your furnace was always working, your kids could be dropped off at the neighbors without notice, you could run next door anytime to borrow a half-dozen eggs, and the doors to all the homes were never locked -- because who would need to steal anything if they already had all that they needed?”
Michael Francis Moore, Here Comes Trouble

Masha Gessen
“It turned out that capitalism alone could make people not only rich and happy but also poor, hungry, miserable, and powerless.”
Masha Gessen, The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin

Henry David Thoreau
“The ways by which you may get money almost without exception lead downward. To have done anything by which you earned money merely is to have been truly idle or worse. If the laborer gets no more than the wages which his employer pays him, he is cheated, he cheats himself. If you would get money as a writer or lecturer, you must be popular, which is to go down perpendicularly. Those services which the community will most readily pay for it is most disagreeable to render. You are paid for being something less than a man. The State does not commonly reward a genius any more wisely. Even the poet laureate would rather not have to celebrate the accidents of royalty. He must be bribed with a pipe of wine; and perhaps another poet is called away from his muse to gauge that very pipe.”
Henry David Thoreau, Life Without Principle

Ha-Joon Chang
“Above a certain level of income, the relative value of material consumption vis-a-vis leisure time is diminished, so earning a higher income at the cost of working longer hours may reduce the quality of your life. More importantly, the fact that the citizens of a country work longer than others in comparable countries does not necessarily mean that they like working longer hours. They may be compelled to work long hours, even if they actually want to take longer holidays.”
Ha-Joon Chang, 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism

“The goal of retirement is to live off your assets-not on them”
Frank Eberhart

“For there to be harmony and peace, everything must be balanced. And for there to be balance, there must be equality. And where there is equality, there will be justice. And where justice is honored and preserved, there will always be truth. Eliminate the concept of division by class, skills, race, income, and nationality. We are all equals with a common pulse to survive. Every human requires food and water. Every human has a dream and desire to be happy. Every human responds to love, suffering and pain. Every human bleeds the same color and occupies the same world. Let us recognize that we are all part of each other. We are all human. We are all one.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“The vast majority of Americans, at all coordinates of the economic spectrum, consider themselves middle class; this is a deeply ingrained, distinctly American cognitive dissonance.”
Ellen Cushing

“Love I must forego. I am not a man with an income.”
Emma Frances Dawson, An Itinerant House, And Other Ghost Stories

“You cannot be rich and right. To be rich, you must be in control. Control brings income. When you insist on being right, you give up control.”
Meir Ezra

Olawale Daniel
“When your SALARY is RAISED, don't RAISE your PROFILE. Instead, RAISE your INVESTMENT so you depend on PROFIT and instead of SALARY. Don't buy a new CAR. Buy a new TAXI. Don't buy new SHOES to WEAR. Buy SHOES to SELL. SELL and you will EXCEL”
Olawale Daniel

Steven Magee
“President Trump, why are you so mean to the poor?”
Steven Magee

Nicholas D. Kristof
“The gains in wealth and income have gone largely to a tiny share of the population, as is common knowledge by now. The people in the top 0.1 percent did fantastically well after 1980, those in the top 1 percent did very well, those below them in the top 10 percent enjoyed incomes growing at the same pace as the economy and those in the bottom 90 percent all lost ground—their incomes grew more slowly than the overall economy—during the last four decades.”
Nicholas D. Kristof, Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope

Ehsan Sehgal
“You wouldn't need the second income, just learn to manage your income that, you have, without that you go nowhere, even you have multiple income resources in your hand”
Ehsan Sehgal

“A common, casual assumption is that if you give a basic income to people, they will become indolent and do nothing. In reality, people enjoy doing work when that work is satisfying. They don't hate being productive, they hate their jobs! Improve working conditions and make work a pleasure rather than a burden, and there's no reason why people won't engage in it. Very few people want to do nothing. They want to find meaning and feel accomplished and useful. Rosy views of human nature may be naive, but so are views that presume the natural state of humankind is slothful and selfish.”
Nathan J. Robinson, Why You Should Be a Socialist

George Choy
“You can’t guarantee receiving a monthly income from your job”
George Choy, RETIRE NOW! Your Blueprint to Financial Freedom Through Property

“Be aware of
Dangers of spending
before earning.


Focus on more saving and
also on
earning more.”
Srinivas Mishra

Richie Norton
“Design your income around your dream lifestyle, rather than your lifestyle around your income.”
Richie Norton

Tom Rath
“Even when money and your finances are an acute priority, it literally pays to focus on the value you're bringing to others. When researchers followed a longitudinal sample of 4660 people over nine years, they found that having a sense of purpose in the first year of the study (based on a standard assessment of purpose in life) was associated with higher levels of both income and net worth over time. What's more, even when they controlled for other variables like life satisfaction and socioeconomic status, people with a sense of purpose at at work also had significantly higher incomes at the end of those nine years.”
Tom Rath, Life's Great Question: Discover How You Contribute To The World

Kate Raworth
“…environmental quality is higher where income is more equitably distributed, where more people are literate, and civil and political rights are better respected. It’s people power, not economic growth persay, that protects local air and water quality. Likewise, it is citizen pressure on government and companies for more stringent standards, not the mere increase in revenue that compels industries to switch to cleaner technologies.”
Kate Raworth, Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist

Grace Burrowes
“People who have less, who are less, keep a close eye on people who have more. Children are more observant about adults than conversely. Women are vigilant regarding the actions of men because we have to be. The same not true in the opposite direction, not in any flattering sense.”
Grace Burrowes, Forever and a Duke

“We have got to provide meaningful work at decent wages for every employable citizen. We must guarantee an adequate income for those unable to work. We must build millions of low-income housing units, tear down the slums, and rebuild our cities. We need to build schools, hospitals, mass transit systems. We need to construct new, integrated towns. As President Johnson has said, we need to build a "second America" between now and the year 2000.

It is in the context of this national reconstruction that the socioeconomic fate of the Negro will be determined. Will we build into the second America new, more sophisticated forms of segregation and exploitation or will we create a genuine open, integrated, and democratic society? Will we have a more equitable distribution of economic resources and political power, or will we sow the seeds of more misery, unrest, and division?

Because of men like Martin Luther King, it is unlikely that the American Negro can ever again return to the old order. But it is up to us, the living, black and white, to realize Dr. King's dream.”
Bayard Rustin, Down The Line

“Great outcomes come with countless amounts of income of investments and losses.”
Goitsemang Mvula
