65 Motivating Money Quotes To Make You Wealthier

There is a famous saying,

“When poverty knocks on the door, love flies out of the window.”

No one can deny the practicality of this saying. As children, we are pampered but as we grow we are expected to earn money which is fair enough. All the bookish and big talks are on one side and the fact that we need money to be independent is on the other side. In this article, we go through relevant money quotes to help you understand the very said fact.

Nothing is free in life. Money is a deal or an agreement among humans that keeps everything organized and managed. It’s very simple, the concept of money and payments keeps our economy flowing. If you need something you will have to pay for it. So, we earn money to buy comfort and be independent in society. This in turn makes us live a self-sufficient and content life.

However, things can go wrong when we forget that money is a requirement to get what we want. However, many of us have made “money” our utmost desire. This makes you no less than a machine whose task is just to earn money. We earn money to buy comfort, to keep ourselves and our loved ones happy. So, if you earn money doing something that you don’t believe in, save it because you are too afraid to lose it, or spend it to impress someone you don’t like, then money will do you more harm than good.

Money is an inevitable part of human society. For instance, we say child security and happiness are more important than money. But how can we ensure the child is secure or happy? By providing him or her with the best life possible. This includes and is not limited to clean clothes, healthy foods, strong education, etc. A lot of these necessities can’t be acquired with a snap of a finger. We need to work harder and harder to earn money so we can afford at least our day-to-day necessities.

Hence, there is no problem if you choose to be “money-minded” as long as you earn your money the right way. When you are the one who is burning the midnight oil to earn the money, then you deserve it! Being money-minded simply means you use your assets to build more assets without having too many liabilities. To endorse my idea about being money-minded, I would like to share some of the best eye-opening money quotes with you all.

Here are 65 of the most practical money quotes to motivate you to “get rich or die trying” 😉
