It’s good to have money and the things that money can buy,
but it’s good, too, to check up once in a while
and make sure you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy.

George Horace Lorimer

He that is of opinion money will do everything
may well be suspected of doing everything for money.

Benjamin Franklin

Tell me what you think about money,
and I can tell you what you think about God,
for these two are closely related.
A person’s heart is closer to his wallet
than almost anything else.

Billy Graham

Tell him too much money has killed men
and left them dead years before burial:
and quest of lucre beyond a few easy needs
has twisted good enough men
sometimes into dry thwarted worms.

Carl Sandburg, “The People, Yes”
