Anthon St. Maarten
“We have created a manic world nauseous with the pursuit of material wealth. Many also bear their cross of imagined deprivation, while their fellow human beings remain paralyzed by real poverty. We drown in the thick sweetness of our sensual excess, and our shameless opulence, while our discontent souls suffocate in the arid wasteland of spiritual deprivation.”
Anthon St. Maarten

Dwight D. Eisenhower
“As we peer into society's future, we -- you and I, and our government -- must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering for our own ease and convenience the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower

“Pick a leader who will make their citizens proud. One who will stir the hearts of the people, so that the sons and daughters of a given nation strive to emulate their leader's greatness. Only then will a nation be truly great, when a leader inspires and produces citizens worthy of becoming future leaders, honorable decision makers and peacemakers. And in these times, a great leader must be extremely brave. Their leadership must be steered only by their conscience, not a bribe.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Pick a leader who will keep jobs in your country by offering companies incentives to hire only within their borders, not one who allows corporations to outsource jobs for cheaper labor when there is a national employment crisis. Choose a leader who will invest in building bridges, not walls. Books, not weapons. Morality, not corruption. Intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance. Stability, not fear and terror. Peace, not chaos. Love, not hate. Convergence, not segregation. Tolerance, not discrimination. Fairness, not hypocrisy. Substance, not superficiality. Character, not immaturity. Transparency, not secrecy. Justice, not lawlessness. Environmental improvement and preservation, not destruction. Truth, not lies.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Pick a leader who will not only bail out banks and airlines, but also families from losing their homes -- or jobs due to their companies moving to other countries. Pick a leader who will fund schools, not limit spending on education and allow libraries to close. Pick a leader who chooses diplomacy over war. An honest broker in foreign relations. A leader with integrity, one who says what they mean, keeps their word and does not lie to their people. Pick a leader who is strong and confident, yet humble. Intelligent, but not sly. A leader who encourages diversity, not racism. One who understands the needs of the farmer, the teacher, the doctor, and the environmentalist -- not only the banker, the oil tycoon, the weapons developer, or the insurance and pharmaceutical lobbyist.”

T.F. Hodge
“Bling" is not an indication of riches. It is a product of value-based spending, to enrich the pockets of those outside of ones sphere of influence...the haves' bleeding the have-nots'.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

John Steinbeck
“She planted that terror of debt so deeply in her children that even now, in a changed economic pattern where indebtedness is a part of living, I become restless when a bill is two days overdue. Olive never accepted the time-payment plan when it became popular. A thing bought on time was a thing you did not own and for which you were in debt. She saved for things she wanted, and this meant that the neighbours had new gadgets as much as two years before we did.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

John Scalzi
“The idea of spending another six hours with Leon and his farts was more than I could take.”
John Scalzi, Old Man's War

“Don't argue with a fool, future will teach him some lessons”
Bamigboye Olurotimi

Jennifer Finney Boylan
“Anybody can buy. It takes an artist to shop.”
Jennifer Finney Boylan

“Having gone through times of plenty and times of scarcity, I know how to look in store windows and keep on walking, and, at this point in my life, I rarely covet anything. More important, I'm old enough to know that whatever we have is transitory and merely on loan. Pass it on, hand it down, hopefully to a welcoming recipient.”
Clare, Janet

Ru Freeman
“What I do have is the uplifting thrill of knowing that each one of my girls is slowly absorbing that old message passed down from my grandmother to my mother, neither of whom were able to live the truth, that we earn money not to save for the future but to live today, that all money is mad money: It is just a matter of where you choose to indulge your madness.”
Ru Freeman

Steven Magee
“Eating organic for good health and spending your day sitting down using a wireless computer that is next to a WiFi router is a classic case of Yin & Yang.”
Steven Magee

“Don't let anyone control how much, and who you give to-people have a way of spending your money”
Charmaine J Forde

James C. Dobson
“If you understand this basic concept, it becomes clear that every spending decision is a spiritual decision. Waste, for example, is not a squandering of our resources. It is a poor use of His.”
James Dobson

Ru Freeman
“And I have hundreds, yes, hundreds, of other items, the shoes, dresses, skirts, pants, jackets, scarfs, and jewelry, that remind me of what sits at the core of my anticonsumerist left-wig activist self: the knowledge that beauty is 99 percent belief, 1 percent standard; the proof that there is no funk, no setback, no ridicule that can erase the bliss of knowing that I can put myself together faster than most people can relieve a full bladder. And that at the end of it I can look pretty damned good.”
Ru Freeman

Steven Magee
“Very few people that have installed solar photovoltaics (PV) on their home have realized that by spending an additional five thousand dollars that they can completely disconnect from the electrical utility.”
Steven Magee

Dada Bhagwan
“(Spoken) words are considered an ‘expense’. ‘Speech’ should not be spent away. Speech is wealth. It should be 'counted' upon spending. Does anyone ever give out money without counting it?”
Dada Bhagwan

“…A good instinct to develop on the threshold of significant purchases is to ask what this expenditure reveals about our heart. What desire am I trying to fulfill?”
David Mathis, Habits of Grace: Enjoying Jesus through the Spiritual Disciplines

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Do not spend all your strength to make money.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

“If I was a private individual, I'd be more careful; but being as I'm a government, I'm privileged to make a God-damned fool of myself in any way I choose, especially by spending a lot more money than I've got or ever will have, and promising to do things that I ain't got a chance of doing.”
Kenneth Roberts, Oliver Wiswell

“We’ve become convinced that filling our lives is the best way to spend our lives. And once we’ve become ‘spent’, we realize that the best way to spend our lives would have been to empty them instead.”
Craig D Lounsbrough

“Hunt wisely”
Patricio Telman Chincocolo

Neala Okuromade
“The analysation of your spending habits is key to your financial success”
Neala Okuromade

Ralph Caplan
“A long time ago Lewis Mumford wrote that "in a society that knows no other ideals, spending becomes the chief source of delight; finally it amounts to a social duty." What an outrageous exaggeration that must have seemed to those at whom it was aimed. Yet today you can hardly pick up a business magazine without finding similar statements never intended to be pejorative. As the photographic historian Judith Mara Gutman says, in a book called Buying,, "the whole process of buying ...determines our daily pace, dictates our nightly rhythm...Buying structures our lives.”
Ralph Caplan, By Design: Why There Are No Locks on the Bathroom Doors in the Hotel Louis XIV and Other Object Lessons

“This was my world: a world of truly irrational behavior. We spend our way into the poorhouse. We buy giant TVs and iPads. Our children wear nice clothes thanks to high-interest credit cards and payday loans. We purchase homes we don't need, refinance them for mare spending money, and declare bankruptcy, often leaving them full of garbage in our wake. Thrift is inimical to our being. We spend to pretend that we're upper-class. And when the dust clears--when bankruptcy hits or a family member bails us out of our stupidity--there's nothing left over. Nothing for the kids' college tuition, no investment to grow our wealth, no rainy-day fund if someone loses her job. We know we shouldn't spend like this. Sometimes we beat ourselves up over it, but we do it anyway.”
J. D. Vance

Moffat Machingura
“Don't spend Capital competing with people who are spending Profits.”
Moffat Machingura

Loren Weisman
“Financing is not the finish line for success. It means you are ready to start the marathon with the backing of fiscal endurance. Failure is still an option if you do not spend wisely, allocate correctly and continue to budget effectively.”
Loren Weisman

Crystal King
“I spent an inordinate amount of time at the markets, Apicius on my heels, purchasing the most costly spices; reams of opulent silk for pillow coverings; ornate, one-of-a-kind oil lamps; and hundred-year-old wines so thick that only the best honey, lead, and spices would bring them back to life. I buried fish in salt, and sealed plums in spirits and left them to age in the dark. I made Roman absinthe and apple wine. I bought the best suckling pigs and began to fatten them on the most expensive figs. I fed our goats a specially sourced mixture of apples, hay, and clover to give their milk new flavor.”
Crystal King, Feast of Sorrow: A Novel of Ancient Rome

“It is easy to spend a ton of money and a ton of time on a business and the advertising of it. Many do. Consider putting the money and the time into the educating, building and protecting of a business to allow for the right results, with the smallest costs and the least amount of time.”
