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 Lorimer
Money is like mulch, not good except it be spread.
— Sir Francis Bacon
I’m not motivated by the money. To me, that money is Monopoly money. It’s out there and it’s mine, but it doesn’t rule my world. The motivation is to be the best player I can be.
— Derek Jeter
If money is all that a man makes, then he will be poor – poor in happiness, poor in all that makes life worth living.
— Herbert Casson
Money will buy a bed, but not sleep;
Books, but not brains;
Food, but not appetite;
Finery, but not beauty;
A house, but not a home;
Medicine, but not health;
Luxuries, but not culture;
Amusement, but not happiness;
Religion, but not salvation;
A passport to everywhere but heaven.
No man can tell whether he is rich or poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich according to what he is, not according to what he has.
— Henry Ward Beecher
Riches are not the only wealth.
— Icelandic proverb
Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint.
— Proverbs 23:4
I think that the person who is attached to riches, who lives with the worry of riches, is actually very poor. If this person puts his money at the service of others, then he is very, very rich.
— Mother Teresa
Money is not required to buy one necessity of the soul.
— Henry David Thoreau
No amount of money can make others speak well of you behind your back.

I know of nothing more despicable and pathetic than a man who devotes all the hours of the waking day to the making of money for money’s sake.
— John D. Rockefeller
I have yet to discover anyone who has found true happiness simply in the gathering of more money. Although money is not sinful or suspect in itself, it is not what brings lasting contentment, fulfillment or satisfaction.
— Charles Swindoll
I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took an excuse.
— Florence Nightingale
Success is the ability to close the door on your past, regardless of your failures, and move forward.
— Bill White
Just remember that success is relative. You don’t have to win a gold medal to be successful. As long as you feel good about yourself, you try as hard as you can and enjoy what you do, that is success.
— Mia Hamm
Success isn’t measured by money or power or social rank. Success is measured by your discipline and inner peace.
— Mike Ditka
My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.
— Helen Hayes
Treat all of your money as if you earned it chopping firewood for a living.
— Larry Burkett
There are only three rules for money:
1. Spending is for living today.
2. Saving is for living tomorrow.
3. Giving makes everyone happy.
— Robert Wolgemuth
Money is an article which may be used as a universal passport to everywhere except heaven, and as a universal provider of everything except happiness.
Money simply makes you more of what you already were before you had it. If you were a giver before you had money, you will still be generous once you have wealth. If your focus was always the acquisition of riches, money will just feed your desire for more.
— T.D. Jakes
