A Simple Truth About... Money

premium_promotion"I've learned that possessions

do not determine your wealth

and that plastic credit cards

are "debtrimental" to your health."

-Linda Ellis

That quote (as well as the rest in this post) comes from The Simple Truths of Life by Linda Ellis, author of The Dash. It's January, and we're all looking at our budgets for the year. Today, I though I'd share some quotes on money to try to keep things in perspective.

"More people should learn to tell their dollars where to go instead of asking them where they went." -Roger W. Babson

"The real measure of our wealth is how much we should be worth if we lost our money." -J.H. Jowett

"The holy passion of friendship is so sweet and steady and loyal and enduring in nature that it will last through a whole lifetime, if not asked to lend money." -Mark Twain

"Money often costs too much." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants." -Epictetus

"Some debts are fun when you are acquiring them, but none are fun when you set about retiring them." -Ogden Nash

What is the best advice that you heard about money? What are some things that will tell your children about money management?
