“Too many people spend money they earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people that they don’t like.”
From Plato to Benjamin Franklin to Will Rogers, everyone always had something to say about money.
There are magazines, newspapers, television networks, conferences, publishers, and more devoted to making and investing money. With its latest promotion, The Solomon Group takes a few steps back for a moment to ponder what money means, how it guides our actions, and how it can enhance or sometimes complicate our lives. Viewing these powerful images and accompanying thoughts on the topic from some well-known individuals throughout history… at the very least, let’s just say our relationship with money can be complicated.
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it it dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
“Money often costs too much.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
“No wealth can ever make a bad man at peace with himself.”
“Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.”
“There is a sufficiency in the world for man’s need but not for man’s greed.”
“If you live for having it all, what you have is never enough.”
“He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
“Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.”
“If you don’t have integrity, you have nothing. You can have all the money in the world, but if you are not a moral and ethical person, you really have nothing.”
