The second quarter of 2021 is about to come to an end. Summer is raging and everyone wants to head to the beach to get a tan and relax. Temperatures out west is sizzling hot but here in Triad is comfortable (mid-80s to upper 90s). Here’s this quarter’s 10 quotes about money and finance.
Samuel Butler: “Friendship is like money. Easier made than kept.”
When a kid visits a playground, it’s easy for them to make friends. Money no matter how big or small it is can be easily found or earned. However, just like friendship, if you don’t give time, effort and energy to it, it’s easily lost.
Nathan W. Morris: “Every time you borrow money, you’re robbing your future self.”
One thing I don’t like here in the United States is their love for credit. Credit for me is a necessary evil. I prefer to buy something when I have the money to pay for it. Borrowing money makes you lose sleep and increase your stress levels especially if you don’t know how to pay for it. Stress is the number one cause of a number of health issues. If you follow the trail, your future self will be robbed of a happy life.
Here’s my quarterly quotes about money and finance. Initially, I was planning to get quotes related to money, environment and finance in celebration of Earth Day (April 22) or quotes by women about money and finance in celebration of International Women’s Day (March 8). However, I had a list already on hand which I really don’t want to change. I might do some theme quotes in the future but bear with me right now with what I want to share with you.
Henry Ford: “Don’t find fault, find a remedy.”
People always have long memories especially when someone wronged them. However, when someone do good to others, they have selective memory. At work, if you want to shine, better have a solution on hand whenever you bring a problem to your boss. With money, if something doesn’t work, don’t do it again, better find a remedy so that you won’t lose more money.
As Christmas is right around the corner, I hopes the quotes below will help you with your money and finances. I’m planning to do this every quarter maybe with a theme. I recall doing these quotes posts way back when I started my finance blog in 2007, I think. I can’t find these posts anymore so everything is from scratch again. Let’s start!
Oscar Wilde: “A man who pays his bills on time is soon forgotten.”
If you don’t want to be harassed by bill collectors like Rebecca Bloomwood in the movie “Confessions of a Shopaholic”, better stick to your budget and pay your bills on time. Better be forgotten by creditors than be bugged by them.
