16 Quotes About Money

I hosted a workshop about money in October 2007 and researched some lovely, lively quotes for the workbook to go with the event. I thought I would share them with you today for your delectation and delight. It was an event organised by women for women, so that’s why the the quotes are either by women or refer to women and money together. Which one is your favourite or least favourite, and why?
