  View quote | Dahlberg, Edward quotes

Money isn't everything but it ranks right up there with oxygen.
  View quote | Davenport, Rita quotes

Comparatively few people know what a million dollars actually is. To the majority it is a gaseous concept, swelling or decreasing as the occasion suggests. In the minds of politicians, perhaps more than anywhere, the notion of a million dollars has this accordion-like ability to expand or contract; if they are disposing of it, the million is a pleasing sum, reflecting warmly upon themselves; if somebody else wants it, it becomes a figure of inordinate size, not to be compassed by the rational mind.
  View quote | Davies, Robertson quotes

Money cannot buy peace of mind. It cannot heal ruptured relationships, or build meaning into a life that has none.
  View quote | DeVos, Richard M. quotes

Dollars! All their cares, hopes, joys, affections, virtues, and associations seemed to be melted down into dollars. Whatever the chance contributions that fell into the slow cauldron of their talk, they made the gruel thick and slab with dollars. Men were weighed by their dollars, measures were gauged by their dollars; life was auctioned, appraised, put up, and knocked down for its dollars. The next respectable thing to dollars was any venture having their attainment for its end. The more of that worthless ballast, honor and fair-dealing, which any man cast overboard from the ship of his Good Nature and Good Intent, the more ample stowage-room he had for dollars. Make commerce one huge lie and mighty theft. Deface the banner of the nation for an idle rag; pollute it star by star; and cut out stripe by stripe as from the arm of a degraded soldier. Do anything for dollars! What is a flag to them!
  View quote | Dickens, Charles quotes

In any country where talent and virtue produce no advancement, money will be the national god. Its inhabitants will either have to possess money or make others believe that they do. Wealth will be the highest virtue, poverty the greatest vice. Those who have money will display it in every imaginable way. If their ostentation does not exceed their fortune, all will be well. But if their ostentation does exceed their fortune they will ruin themselves. In such a country, the greatest fortunes will vanish in the twinkling of an eye. Those who don't have money will ruin themselves with vain efforts to conceal their poverty. That is one kind of affluence: the outward sign of wealth for a small number, the mask of poverty for the majority, and a source of corruption for all.
  View quote | Diderot, Denis quotes

A billion here, a billion there, and soon you're talking about real money.
  View quote | Dirksen, Everett M. quotes

When you don't have any money, the problem is food, When you have money, it's sex. When you have both, its. It's health, If everything is simple, then you're frightened of death.
  View quote | Donleavy, J. P. quotes

Money speaks, but it speaks with a male voice.
  View quote | Dworkin, Andrea quotes

When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.
  View quote | Dyer, Wayne quotes

Successful people make money. It's not that people who make money become successful, but that successful people attract money. They bring success to what they do.

Money is the representative of a certain quantity of corn or other commodity. It is so much warmth, so much bread.
  View quote | Emerson, Ralph Waldo quotes

It requires a great deal of boldness and a great deal of caution to make a great fortune, and when you have it, it requires ten times as much skill to keep it.

Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses.

If you make money your god, it will plague you like the devil.
  View quote | Fielding, Henry quotes

Sir, money, money, the most charming of all things; money, which will say more in one moment than the most elegant lover can in years. Perhaps you will say a man is not young; I answer he is rich. He is not genteel, handsome, witty, brave, good-humored, but he is rich, rich, rich, rich, rich --that one word contradicts everything you can say against him.

God makes, and apparel shapes; but it's money that finishes the man.
  View quote | Fuller, Thomas quotes

Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man's greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce.
  View quote | Galbraith, John Kenneth quotes

Money differs from an automobile or mistress in being equally important to those who have it and those who do not.

  View quote | Kinnear, E. S. quotes

All money means to me is a pride in accomplishment.
  View quote | Kroc, Ray quotes

Money is like fire, an element as little troubled by moralizing as earth, air and water. Men can employ it as a tool or they can dance around it as if it were the incarnation of a god. Money votes socialist or monarchist, finds a profit in pornography or translations from the Bible, commissions Rembrandt and underwrites the technology of Auschwitz. It acquires its meaning from the uses to which it is put.
  View quote | Lapham, Lewis H. quotes

We might make a public moan in the newspapers about the decay of conscience, but in private conversation, no matter what crimes a man may have committed or how cynically he may have debased his talent or his friends, variations on the answer Yes, but I did it for the money, satisfy all but the most tiresome objections.

The Lord commonly gives riches to foolish people, to whom he gives nothing else.
  View quote | Luther, Martin quotes

But for money and the need of it, there would not be half the friendship in the world. It is powerful for good if divinely used. Give it plenty of air and it is sweet as the hawthorn; shut it up and it cankers and breeds worms.

  View quote | Madwed, Sidney quotes

There is no intrinsic worth in money but what is alterable with the times, and whether a guinea goes for twenty pounds or for a shilling, it is the labor of the poor and not the high and low value that is set on gold or silver, which all the comforts of life must arise from.

  View quote | Murchison, Jr., Clint quotes

The buck stops with the guy who signs the checks.
  View quote | Murdoch, Rupert quotes

Americans want action for their money. They are fascinated by its self-reproducing qualities if it's put to work. Gold-hoarding goes against the American grain; it fits in better with European pessimism than with America's traditional optimism.

The basic principle of turning ideas into big money is to seize every money building idea and work with it until the idea fits your purpose, decide on the steps needed to make it work, and then proceed to do it as soon as possible.

Never underestimate the value of cold cash.
  View quote | Nunn, Gregory quotes

If a man is after money, he's money mad; if he keeps it, he's a capitalist; if he spends it, he's a playboy; if he doesn't get it, he's a never-do-well; if he doesn't try to get it, he lacks ambition. If he gets it without working for it; he's a parasite; and if he accumulates it after a life time of hard work, people call him a fool who never got anything out of life.

Money does not change men, it only unmasks them.
  View quote | Riccoboni, Mme. quotes

Many people make the mistake of thinking that all the challenges in their lives would dissipate if they just had enough money. Nothing could be further from the truth.

  View quote | Robbins, Anthony quotes

God gave me my money. I believe the power to make money is a gift from God . to be developed and used to the best of our ability for the good of mankind.
