The Downside of Money

I have made many millions, but they have bought me no happiness. I would barter them all for the days I sat on an office stool in Cleveland and counted myself rich on three dollars a week.
John D. Rockefeller

Integrity, good health, family and friends are worth more than anything money can buy.
Robert Dedman

Many a man has found the acquisition of wealth only a change, not an end, of miseries.
Seneca

The rich woman doesn’t know who her true friends are.

The more money you have, the more problems you have. I went from having no money to making comparatively a lot and all I’ve had are problems. Life was simpler when I had no money, when I just barely survived.
Madonna

The Downside of Money

Always a little more.
John D. Rockefeller, on how much money it takes to satisfy a person

I bet you’re all wondering what it’s like to be a billionaire. It’s disappointing really.
John Andrews

There is a burden of care in getting riches; fear in keeping them; temptation in using them; guilt in abusing them; sorrow in losing them; and a burden of account at last to be given concerning them.
Matthew Henry

Where did it all go?
David Feherty, on achieving £1 million in career earnings

Money can do much good, as well as bad, but it cannot buy a rich life. Balance, humor, giving, living, loving, laughing, learning, time-budgeting, having integrity, being nice, working hard and playing even harder all equate to a richness beyond dollars and cents.
Robert Dedman

The Downside of Money

Riches enlarge, rather than satisfy appetite.
Thomas Fuller

Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.
Proverbs 15:16

Don’t trade the very stuff of your life, time, for nothing more than dollars. That’s a rotten bargain.
Rita Brown

Somewhere along the line, people motivated only by money lose the edge.
Jeremy McGrath

My significance, my security, aren’t tied up in how well I play golf, whether I’m number one on the money list or 65th or 180th. This life is a short period of time, and we’re just passing through. So you sure don’t want your treasure to be down here.

The Downside of Money

Money often costs too much.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Millionaires rarely smile.
Andrew Carnegie

I’ve made a lot of money since I’ve been on the Tour, and I’ve won a lot of tournaments. That happiness is always temporary.
Paul Azinger

The prosperous man is never sure that he is loved for himself.
Marcus Lucan

When I first started making money, I thought the first thing that would make me happy was a fast car, so I bought a Porsche. The second thing I thought would make me happy was if I owned a house, so I bought a house. The third thing I thought would make me happy was if I bought an airplane, so I bought an airplane. After all that, I finally realized I wasn’t going to buy happiness, and I wasn’t going to find happiness through somebody else.
Hal Sutton
