Money is not a motivating factor. Money doesn't thrill me or make me play better because there are benefits to being wealthy. I'm just happy with a ball at my feet.

Being part of a team helped me so much. I know the fact that there was a man in the room with me all those years made the medicine go down. I had made the companies money. I didn't have to start, like a lot of women, from ground zero. My path was not the same as a woman starting out by herself. Nancy Meyers
I have long been one of those tedious people who rails against the coronation of 'student-athletes.' I have heard the argument that big-time athletics bring in loads of money to universities.

Up against the corporate government, voters find themselves asked to choose between look-alike candidates from two parties vying to see who takes the marching orders from their campaign paymasters and their future employers.

Muhammadu Buhari

The Tom Strong thing was totally for the money. I plan to get looser after I finish this Maggie saga. Jaime Hernandez

Music is a language and different people who come along are each using that language to do something different, but all coming at it in a similar vein inasmuch as it's always community based and for the most part nonprofit.

Politics has become unbelievably and unfortunately way too much about how much money is involved rather than what kind of ideas are involved. Mike Huckabee

The faux now of Twitter updates and things pinging at you - all the pulses from digitality that we try to keep up with because we sense that there's something going on that we need to tap into - are artifacts, or symptoms of living in this atemporal reality.

Money is power and power gives you choice. Sam Rockwell

We became enthralled with the view that wealth trickled down from the top and that if you poured money into rich people, sort of like an ingredient, prosperity and jobs would squirt out of them like donuts. And if you understand economies in the 19th-century way, that view is plausible, and I think a lot of people accepted it. Nick Hanauer
I basically see two reasons for a going public: Glencore gets access to more money. It is a way of funding your business and to finance growth. Plus: You have more liquid shares. It is easier to leave the company and redeem your shares. The 'going public' may also be an exit strategy for the top management. Marc Rich
A man in debt is so far a slave. Ralph Waldo Emerson
They're making a ton of money, and no one is getting a nickel. Ruben Blades

The changing nature of money is only one facet of the financial services revolution. Scott Cook

It's tricky. I've never been standing at the top of the tree with tons of money thrown at me. I've never really had a profile. So in a way I have this 'nothing to lose' attitude. Joel Edgerton
I'd go to the farmers' market in Santa Barbara, and I'd put out my guitar case, and I'd test out these little ditty songs that I would write, and I would get a couple of avocados, a bag of pistachios, and, like, fifteen bucks. That was a lot of money for me. Katy Perry
The money can be decent, but I really don't recommend the work-for-hire route as an entry into publishing. Too many things can go wrong. Lynn Abbey

It's a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money. Albert Camus

I had more clothes than I had closets, more cars than garage space, but no money. Sammy Davis, Jr.
In hip-hop, what you have is you have a lot of formulaic-type bands or rappers that come up. They saw something on the radio, and they want to mimic that formula. And that's just boring.

There is hardly any money interest in art, and music will be there when money is gone. Duke Ellington

I didn't have the money to put myself through drama school, so I thought - naively - that if I wrote a play and put it on at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, agents would see me and that would be my ticket to Hollywood.

If you want to make money and have action, you need to work from like, 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Those are the hours. That just doesn't fit with a lot of people's schedules. And that's just the start of it. You've got to realize what you are getting into. Chris Moneymaker

I'm under stress. They killed me on wikipedia. They killed me. And I didn't stay dead long enough to sell no DVDs. I didn't even stay dead long enough - I was too stupid. I should've stayed low. I should've laid low. I could've been gone for a year; I'd have made money. And then I'd have risen from the dead. Sinbad
Life is a game. Money is how we keep score. Ted Turner

I've always thought stability was suffocating and deadly. Like, when I read that the kids I went to law school with have stayed at the same firm, I feel like I'm reading an obituary.

The answer to New Orleans's levee woes is painfully obvious: money and willpower. Douglas Brinkley
There's so many things I want to do. I want to work with great filmmakers, great actors, great scripts. And there's no reason for me to do anything short of that, because I'm 24, I don't have a family, I don't need to make tons of money, and I'm not dying to get famous. Tobey Maguire

David Plouffe
I went to a few really bad commercial auditions because I needed the money, and when you booked a commercial, your life was made: you could eat. Elizabeth Banks
People call me a movie star. If you're in the business, a movie star is someone who can make a film bankable. My name and $6 million will make a $6 million movie. I'm a working actor.

The importance of money flows from it being a link between the present and the future. John Maynard Keynes

The thing about a real economy is that it actually is like the game of Monopoly in the sense that when one person has all the money, the game is over. And in a game of Monopoly, of course, that's quite charming, but in a real economy, it's much more problematic. Nick Hanauer

We've discovered that the less we do, the more money we make. Eric Idle

The worst thing people ever say is that 'I can't afford to have kids!' It's selfish, and what infuriates me is when people say they can't do stuff they like go on holidays and buy cars when they have kids. You can - you find the money, you've just got to work harder for it. Tamer Hassan

I've discovered that I've never had much respect for money, and that has meant that money has ended up ruling me a little bit more than it should have. So I'm trying to learn - at this late stage in life! - to actually control that. Rufus Sewell
Friends and acquaintances are the surest passport to fortune. Arthur Schopenhauer
Labour was the first price, the original purchase - money that was paid for all things. It was not by gold or by silver, but by labour, that all wealth of the world was originally purchased. Adam Smith

I have registered few titles like 'Bharat Bandh,' 'Calendar Girl,' 'Money Politics.' The titles just intrigued me, so I registered. I had a title, 'Jai Ho,' which I gave to Sohail Khan for his next film with Salman Khan. These are typical Madhur Bhandarkar kind of films. I may make a film or not on such titles... not sure yet. Madhur Bhandarkar
One thing is that I wasn't getting booked that well, and they had control over who got the awards, they had control over who sold. And they really did not want Willie or me, either one, to have a hit record. They wanted the money, but they didn't want us to be the ones. Waylon Jennings
Every time I've done a fund raiser, I've been blown away by the amount of money and the generosity that our fans have. Amanda Tapping
The money to fund great things and innovations and programs is gone in our lifetime; it's all gone to debt.

We should be supporting people with great ideas, but it's gone, and now it's gotta be paid back with interest to banks in China. Michael Moore
I never cared about money because I never needed money, you know what I mean? When I was 12 to 17 I never saw any of the money, so the money never motivated me. Ricky Schroder

When I had money, I felt pressure, whether it was to invest it or do good with it, and I couldn't let it fizzle out. It was like I needed to prove to myself that I could look after it, only I did the opposite, but you have to take a chance in life. Shane Filan
First, people don't read novels off screens, and they don't have a tendency to shell out real money for books when they don't retain anything physically for their money. Jack L. Chalker
I've never seen American Idol but I am grateful to them. That show is one of Fox's biggest moneymakers, and some of that money goes to pay for shows like Prison Break. Simon Cowell's been signing my paychecks and for that I say thanks. Wentworth Miller
I tried to start a theatre in LA and failed miserably, but I was probably not meant to raise money. Beth Henley
In money, and in life, you are very often your own worst enemy. You promise yourself you're going to diet, then eat not one or two French fries but a whole plate. You decide to really commit to saving for retirement, only to wind up with a new pair of shoes in your closet. Jean Chatzky
Remember that credit is money. Benjamin Franklin

Jen Kirkman

At Cornell University, it was well known that after five years on Wall Street, you could expect to be making half a million a year in salary and bonus; after 10 years, you could expect a million or more.

I used to do volunteer work in poor areas of Cairo, and people would gather their money together to get a satellite dish.

Jehane Noujaim
The Bolsheviks started not just on the killing of private property; they were trying to abolish money itself. Anatoly Chubais

My favorite records are, like, The Pretty Things' 'Parachute' and 'S.F. Sorrow' and The Mothers of Invention's 'We're Only in It for the Money' and The Kinks' 'Village Green Preservation Society' - these records that have a story - even if it's not a literal story - because of how they're sequenced and flow. It's like a novel with sound. Ty Segall

Because I didn't have much money, I bought a small shop that fit my budget. The previous six owners had closed their business in three years.

Abhishek Bachchan

I call crony capitalism, where you take money from successful small businesses, spend it in Washington on favored industries, on favored individuals, picking winners and losers in the economy, that's not pro-growth economics.

There's a community of second generation immigrants, and I became part of that because I had an American father. Joel Kinnaman

1% of the population has all the money and the other 99% have nothing. Ron Perlman

Socialism and communism fall of their own weight because, as Margaret Thatcher said, you run out of other people's money. Because socialized medicine never falls of its own weight because you put people on lists, and they die waiting to get the treatment and care. So you don't go broke. Louie Gohmert
By working toward a financial objective, you'll start to see the money add up for retirement or the credit card balance go down.

Money is power. Power is an aphrodisiac. Felix Dennis
I spend my money like I don't have anything. Victoria Osteen
Money you know you need or want to spend in the next few years is savings. Money you keep handy for an emergency belongs in savings.

I don't publish the books to make money, not at all. Peter Sotos

The only wealth in this world is children, more than all the money, power on earth. Mario Puzo
I can see my work as a job. I do it for money. I likely already look forward to the weekend on Thursdays. And I probably will need a hobby as a leveling mechanism.

I'd have to say, for me, as a child, my favorite memories were always centered around Christmas time.

That's called fairness where I come from. Joe Biden
Nothing is so strongly fortified that it cannot be taken by money. Marcus Tulliuis Cicero

Money doesn't transform a person - the only thing that can is love. Eleanor Catton
If there's anything Trollope novels always take seriously, it is money - how it flows from one character to another, how it is managed, who has it, who deserves it, and what it means to a character, male or female. Jane Smiley

Art usually only makes the news in America when the subject is money. Jerry Saltz
I know what it means to do a job... I worked in a factory. I respect people in the service industry. What irritates me more is when people aren't respectful. There's a lot of nonsense behavior, especially in a place like Hollywood. The money, the power, they create little monsters. Gary Oldman
I love the feeling of having as close to a steady job as you can ever have as an actor. I'm not an extravagant spender, so when I work on a TV show for a season or do a bunch of episodes as a reoccurring, I try to spread the money that comes from that out so that I can do these movies that are important to me. Jason Ritter
While I have always thought that the motivation for looking for E.T. was both self-evident and patently worthy, it's possible that I'm a victim of my own job description. Others don't inevitably agree. Some will opine that there are better ways to spend the money. Seth Shostak
Our goal is to desperately make the best products we can. We're not naive. We trust that if we're successful and we make good products, that people will like them.

Studying is something I really love doing, and I just hope to have enough money for tuition. Alexandra Kosteniuk

I'd go stupid collecting and counting my money. Thelonious Monk

I basically got an education in software on DuPont's money because they were too stubborn to admit that a recession was coming. Michael J. Saylor
People expected 'Jennifer's Body' to make so much money. But I was doubtful. The movie is about a man-eating, cannibalistic lesbian cheerleader, and that pretty much eliminates middle America. It's obviously a girl-power movie, but it's also about how scary girls are. Girls can be a nightmare. Megan Fox
I absolutely love television, and I don't mean to be vulgar, but as I keep having to explain to people from the movie industry, I get more power and more money doing television, so why on earth would I do a film? Steven Moffat
By the end of World War II, we were the most powerful and least damaged of the great nations. We also had most of the money. America's hegemony lasted exactly five years. Gore Vidal

There are no tests similar to SATs to tell us how much undergraduates know. State legislators, who appropriate billions of dollars each year to higher education, are naturally interested in finding out what they are getting for their money. Derek Bok
The reason they don't make movies for adults and for people which are the largest bulge of the population is because they are not usually going to the movie the first weekend. They take a while to learn about it, probably word of mouth. It takes a lot of money to release a picture. Rob Reiner

Money doesn't matter on a deeply personal level. It doesn't make you feel any happier. But of course I am very aware that I don't have to worry about earning a living or about those very important practical things that most people have to worry about on a very real level. Winona Ryder
I don't know if Jesus said it in the Bible, but someone said that 'the love of money is the root of all evil,' and I do think there's a correlation between the ambition that a lot of people have, in terms of financial remuneration, and the loss of core values. Norbert Leo Butz

The only time people get pressured into doing reunions to make more money is when the current lineup is underperforming. And by bringing back the other guy, it increases their draw. Eddie Trunk
We have over 500,000 illegal immigrants living in Arizona. And we simply cannot sustain it. It costs us a tremendous amount of money of course in health care, in education, and then, on top of it all, in incarceration. And the federal government doesn't reimburse us on any of these things. Jan Brewer
Lack of time and money create really bad green practices. Ian Somerhalder
The unending chase for money, I believe, threatens to steal our democracy itself. I've used the word 'corrupting,' and I want to be very clear about it: I mean by it not the corruption of individuals, but a corruption of a system itself that all of us are forced to participate in against our will. Scott Peters
My parents never really had that much money, so I kind of live in the same world that they do. Margaret Cho

Within the cult of Wall Street that forged Mitt Romney, making money justifies any behavior, no matter how venal. Matt Taibbi
I'm a little lavish I must admit. But I'm not really concerned with money. Being rich is not my goal, being wealthy is. CeeLo Green
It is true that rich people can spend more money than middle class people, but there's this upper limit on what we can spend. I drive a very nice car, but it's only one car. I don't own a thousand, even though I earn a thousand times the median wage. I have a few jackets, not a few thousand. Nick Hanauer
When I first came out, I was a film student, and my mom sewed clothes. I was already doing a million things then, whatever it took to survive. If I had to braid someone's hair to get one pound for my lunch money, that's what I did. M.I.A.

Remember the Tea Party movement didn't get started in September of 2008 when the bank bailout was passed. It really began on Feb. 19th, 2009 when a television commentator named Rick Santelli stood up and said what the hell are we doing bailing out people who couldn't afford a mortgage by taking money from people like me who are prudent? Karl Rove
I made a tremendous amount of money on real estate. I'll take real estate rather than go to Wall Street and get 2.8 percent. Forget about it. Ivanka Trump

It takes a long time to write a novel when you have to keep interrupting your work to earn money. Dana Spiotta

I never dreamed I'd be a spokesman for anything. But Pac Bell just asked me.

Chris Eigeman
For now, capitalism is working to produce more money but does not see the people. This problem is getting worse across the world. Lech Walesa
