19 Quotes About Your Money

 

Many people I meet have a complex relationship with money. They may desire it, fear it, or even despise it. I’ve seen families torn apart by it; neighbors fight over it; and friendships lost by it. I’ve also seen the power of charitable giving where lives are transformed from it.

Money is partly a reflection, an illusion, and a relationship. Finance is equal parts numbers and emotion.
