'Sir, all the arguments which are brought to represent poverty as no evil, show it to be a great evil. You never find people labouring to convince you that you may live very happily upon a plentiful fortune.'

Dr. Johnson

'Those who have some means think that the most important thing in the world is love. The poor know that it is money.'

Gerald Brenan

'There's no money in poetry, but then there's no poetry in money, either.'

Robert Graves

'Money often costs too much.'

Ralph Walden Emerson

'My circumstances now have made me the happiest person I know. I think money is essential to happiness.' 

Wilbur Smith, interviewed by the Sunday Telegraph in 2010.

'Nouveau is better than not Riche at all.'

Cristina Ferrare, Mrs. John DeLorean, had this embroidered on a cushion.
