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

“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

“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.”

Lisa Bedrick
“Most of us don't fear that we are not enough; what most of us really fear is our own greatness. Most of us have a fear of success. Why? Because we don't think that we deserve to be successful in anything. This is why people recklessly spend their money or don't work as hard as they could or do things that they know are wrong. They are hindering their own success on purpose, because they don't think they deserve it. They cut their own legs out from underneath them on purpose. They are self-sabotaging.”
Lisa Bedrick, How to Walk Worthy of Your Calling

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

Anna Agoncillo
“Since most of us are stubborn to admit that we made a mistake, we would rather settle for what we bought.”
Anna Agoncillo, Psychology Of Love, Money, & Life

“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.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Anna Agoncillo
“In terms of monetary behavior, there are two types of people in this Earth: those who save and those who spend.”
Anna Agoncillo, Psychology Of Love, Money, & Life

“After spending all of his resources to create all of us, not just one or two people, but in millions and billions and yet, God cannot find a man who will stand for him”
Sunday Adelaja

“Calico Kitty

My calico kitty
was painted and primed
she could prowl
the night away ~
without spending a dime...”
Muse, Enigmatic Evolution

“If you will conduct a poll with most people in our world today and ask them to tell you what is the ideal life they dream about. Most people will tell you that they are dreaming of having a house on an island, but really they are spending away and whining away their lives.”
Sunday Adelaja

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 C. Dobson

“No one has ever achieved financial success by constantly spending all they have in order to deceive others into believing they are rich.”
Edmond Mbiaka

Christopher Zoukis
“Annual state spending alone for prison facilities is now estimated at about $52 to $62 billion, the bulk of which is spent building new facilities; operating and maintaining more prisons; providing food and health care for prisoners; and administration and staff salaries and benefits.”
Christopher Zoukis, College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons

“As a matter of fact, people erroneously think that life is about spending.”
Sunday Adelaja

“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

Dada Bhagwan
“If money is spent in the wrong way, then ‘control’ the spending and if the money is spent in the right way, then ‘decontrol’ the spending.”
Dada Bhagwan

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

“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.”
Freeman, Ru

“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.”
Freeman, Ru

“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

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

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

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
