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 six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pound 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

Idowu Koyenikan
“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.”

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

“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

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

“To really change the world, we have to help people change the way they see things.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“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

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Millions of business people are each constantly forced to choose between their desire to not be a bad person and their desire to be a good business person, that is to say, to make as much money as they possibly can by maximizing their revenue while minimizing the cost of producing whatever it is that they sell.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Use and Misuse of Children

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“One of the most common root causes of our unhappiness is our desire to give people who will get to see the house we live in, and/or the car or cars we drive, an idea of how much we earn, earned, or were allowed to borrow.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“The greater the passive income you can build, the freer you will become.”
Todd M. Fleming

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

James Weldon Johnson
“I had made my mind up that since I was not going to be a Negro, I would avail myself of every possible opportunity to make a white man's success; and that, if it can be summed up in any one word, means "money.”
James Weldon Johnson, The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man

Deyth Banger
“I receive Income from you, can you point one reason why not to be nice with ya?”
Deyth Banger

“Ignorance leads to low income.”
Sunday Adelaja, The Mountain of Ignorance

“The combined effects of growing inequality, a faltering education system, demographic headwinds, and the strong likelihood of a fiscal correction imply that the real median disposable income will grow much more slowly in the future than in the past.”
Robert J. Gordon, The Rise and Fall of American Growth: The U.S. Standard of Living Since the Civil War

“Inequality makes people feel poor and act poor, even when they're not.”
Keith Payne, The Broken Ladder: How Inequality Affects the Way We Think, Live, and Die

E.M. Forster
“But this is something quite new!" said Mrs. Munt, who collected new ideas as a squirrel collects nuts, and was especially attracted by those that are portable.

"New for me; sensible people have acknowledged it for years. You and I and the Wilcoxes stand upon money as upon islands. It is so firm beneath our feet that we forget its very existence. It's only when we see someone near us tottering that we realize all that an independent income means. Last night, when we were talking up here round the fire, I began to think that the very soul of the world is economic, and that the lowest abyss is not the absence of love, but the absence of coin."

"I call that rather cynical."

"So do I. But Helen and I, we ought to remember, when we are tempted to criticize others, that we are standing on these islands, and that most of the others are down below the surface of the sea. The poor cannot always reach those whom they want to love, and they can hardly ever escape from those whom they love no longer. We rich can. Imagine the tragedy last June if Helen and Paul Wilcox had been poor people and could not invoke railways and motor-cars to part them."

"That's more like Socialism," said Mrs. Munt suspiciously.

"Call it what you like. I call it going through life with one's hand spread open on the table. I'm tired of these rich people who pretend to be poor, and think it shows a nice mind to ignore the piles of money that keep their feet above the waves. I stand each year upon six hundred pounds, and Helen upon the same, and Tibby will stand upon eight, and as fast as our pounds crumble away into the sea they are renewed—from the sea, yes, from the sea. And all our thoughts are the thoughts of six-hundred-pounders, and all our speeches; and because we don't want to steal umbrellas ourselves, we forget that below the sea people do want to steal them, and do steal them sometimes, and that what's a joke up here is down there reality—”
E.M. Forster, Howards End

“Learn to fish (income), share your fish (community service), teach others to fish (multiply yourself). Then find another sidestream, with different fish (diversify income). And before THAT sidestream dries up, plant a garden (manage risk), like Thomas Jefferson (genius) would have done.”
Jennifer Ritchie Payette

வைரமுத்து [Vairamuthu]
“தேவைக்கு ஆரம்பிக்கிற சம்பாத்தியம், ஆசைக்கு இழுத்துட்டுப் போகுது. ஆசை பேராசையில முடியுது. பேராசை மனவியாதியில கொண்டுபோய் விட்டுறது மனுசன.”
Vairamuthu, மூன்றாம் உலகப் போர் [Moondram ulaga por]

“It is not the economy that determines your income, it is your own personal development”
Mac Duke The Strategist

“Deep pockets are easy to fill!”
D. S. Pandit, Wisdom Quotes and Life Lessons

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.”
