I wrote in chapter nine of Steal Like An Artist: “Most people I know hate to think about money. Do yourself a favor: Learn about money as soon as you can.”
Here are 10 of my favorite quotes about money:
“The key to eternal happiness is low overhead and no debt.”
“The best way to instantly raise your standard of living is to live in the past.”
“True economy consists in always making the income exceed the out-go. Wear the old clothes a little longer… live on plainer food if need be; so that, under all circumstances, unless some unforeseen accident occurs, there will be a margin in favor of income.”
“The trick is… to be fiscally responsible so you can be creatively reckless.”
— Tom Rothman
“If you don’t take money, they can’t tell you what to do. That’s the key to the whole thing.”
“Writers, actors, and prostitutes all face the same fundamental economic problem: they are competing with amateurs who are pretty good and will work for nothing.”
“The Renaissance, like everything else, had to be financed.”
”I think things up in the morning; I sell ’em in the afternoon.”
“I sell something for money, then I spend less than I make.”
“Sellout…I’m not crazy about that word. We’re all entrepreneurs. To me, I don’t care if you own a furniture store or whatever — the best sign you can put up is SOLD OUT.”
