“All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.” -Calvin Coolidge

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” -Thomas Edison

Banks are keeping billions of dollars from Americans…  Right now, according to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, about $350 billion is sitting in brokerage accounts earning an average of 0.12%. That’s about $420 million in interest.  But if all those people with that cash just sitting there moved it to an account earning 1%, the interest earning soars to $3.5 billion a year.  That’s like leaving nearly $3.4 billion in free money on the table.  Make your money work for you.  Stop letting these banks steal your interest.” -David Eifrig

“Debt is simply a way for you to own and control more than you can currently afford from your savings. When you take on debt, you are agreeing to use future earnings to pay for something you want now. In general, if it’s something consumed – like a car, clothes, or airplane tickets – all you’re doing is stealing from your future to satisfy your present desires or needs. Eventually, it will not work.” -David Eifrig

“Getting money without working for it is probably more often a detriment than a boon to civilized behavior….  But Bell [Clive] is completely mistaken if he thinks that free money alone, handed out to the mob, will bring a more enlightened, more literate, and more sophisticated society.  Instead, it will make us poorer in every way – economically and socially.  And culturally.  It will be a disaster.  It’s work, challenges, and struggles that give meaning to our lives, not money.” -Bill Bonner

“In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed.  They must be fit for it. They must not do too much of it.  And they must have a sense of success in it.” -John Ruskin
