“In the United States neither paper currency nor deposits have value as commodities.  Intrinsically, a dollar bill is just a piece of paper….  What, then, makes these instruments…acceptable at face value in payment of all debts and for other monetary uses?  Mainly, it is the confidence people have that they will be able to exchange such money for other financial assets and for real goods and services whenever they choose to do so.  Money, like anything else, derives its value from its scarcity in relation to its usefulness….  Money’s usefulness is its unique ability to command other goods and services and to permit a holder to be constantly ready to do so.” -Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago

“The point is that I don’t believe you need the mind of a champion to be successful in business.  You need to do only two things: work harder than all those who are competing with you and imitate the actions of successful people you admire.  If you do that long enough, you will have the success you yearn for.  And as a bonus, you will have acquired courage and confidence, too.” -Mark Ford
