The Best Money Quotes
There are certain situations or times in our lives in which a good quote can perfectly explain how we feel or what is going on. Over the years I have compiled a number of quotes related to money and finances that have become favorites of mine. I have quotes that I have said to my kids so often that they are now saying them back to me. Some of these quotes provide motivation and some insight. You will find this list is a mix of funny and serious; financial geniuses and rock legends. Please enjoy my top 10 favorite quotes about money and wealth:
“I am more concerned with the return OF my money than the return on my money.” Will Rogers

Like a person’s favorite music or movies, a person’s favorite quotes can often tell you a lot more about them than the relatively ordinary and inconsequential topic of conversation that it is. I hope these provided you some insight into who I am not only as a wealth manager, but as a person too. And at the very least, I hope this lighthearted list brightened your day a little.
