A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on money, wealth, liberty, freedom, and economics

It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments.

A Quote by Horace Greeley on fame, popularity, money, and character

Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident and money takes wings. The only thing that endures is character.

A Quote by Raphie on honesty, money, george washington, abe lincoln, patrick hamilton, liberty, freedom, and independence

Take note, ye honestly ambitious: we sing happily the praises of the righteous honest in our religious texts, but don't think we really believe that kind of "goodness" pays. The muses of the merry, happy "gooder" ones who rule us, George Washington, Abe Lincoln and Patrick Hamilton harmonize the tune we know speaks true truth. Liberty, freedom and independence are to be found by keeping the notes they grace us with -- the one, five and ten dollar bills -- close by the side. Disregard their song at your own pecuniary peril.

A Quote by Raphie on kindness, karma, money, and what goes around comes around

Receive an ounce of kindness? Try to pass on two and it will even out in the end. If you don't know what I mean, try being the guy who collects the money at the end of a group dinner...

A Quote by Muhammad Yunus on poverty, grameen bank, yunus, nobel, peace, money, and bonsai

Poor ppl are a like bonsai tree, a little tree.  You pick the seed of the tallest tree in the forest and take the best seed out of it, and plant it in a flower pot.  You get a tiny little tree, we call it a bonsai.  Nothing wrong with the seed, you've got the best seed possible.  Nothing wrong with the tree, because you actually picked the tallest tree in the forest.  But actually it grows this far... why?  Because we put them in the flower pot.  The base.  Society is the base.  And society is so stingy it doesn't give the poor ppl the space to grow.

So i say, change the base!  If you change the base, anybody will be as tall as anybody else!  My belief is poverty is not caused by poor ppl.  Poverty is caused by the system.  Poverty is caused by the policies that we pursue.

Muhammad Yunus
