25 Quotes On Money and Wealth

Category : Life Tips

Money problems are probably the biggest complaint people have after health problems. Sometimes we are in so deep (with debt)  that we figure there is no way out so we may as well live with it. We tell ourselves that it is a normal part of life, a necessary evil. After all, pretty much everyone we know has some kind of debt. We may think that there is no other option, no other way of doing things and meeting our bill payments.

What comes to mind when you think of the word money?  Do you think “I really could do with having more of it?” Do you think of all the bills needing to paid or the things you need to buy, such as groceries and gas for the car?  How often do you say “I just can’t afford it?” Does the word money trigger positive feelings or memories, or does it bring up images of lacking?
