    Anyone who says money is not important has probably always had more than enough.

      Or doesn’t have any and never will, and wants to convince themselves they’re okay with that.

    I remember a movie I used to watch a lot in the ’80s had a guy saying, “Baby, you look like a million dollars!” She replied, “Why are you always putting everything in terms of money?” He said, “Probably because I don’t have any.”

    I don’t know why, but it almost made me giggle.

    I love these quotes, especially the Oscar Wilde one.

    You need to read ‘ How to worry less about money by John Armstrong. He uses allot of quotes from Jane Austin throughout the book (borrow it from the library I’m sure the Auckland central library will have a copy)
