Economy is a
into which men drop pennies, and get dollars in return.—H.W. Shaw.
Economy is half the battle of life; it
is not so hard to earn money
as to spend it well.—Spurgeon.
Let honesty and industry be thy constant
companions and spend one
penny less than thy clear gains; then shall thy hide-bound pocket soon
begin to thrive and will never again cry with the empty belly-ache;
neither will creditors insult thee, nor want oppress, nor hunger bite,
nor nakedness freeze thee.—Franklin.
He that, when he should not, spends too
much, shall, when he would
not, have too little to spend.—Feltham.
Economy is the parent of integrity, of
liberty and of ease, and the
beauteous sister of temperance, of cheerfulness and health.—Dr. Johnson.
Beware of little expenses; a small leak
will sink a great ship.—Franklin.
If you know how to spend less than you
get you have the
saving, but not at the cost of all liberality. Have the soul of a king
and the hand of a wise economist.—Joubert.
A penny saved is
two pence clear,
A pin a day's a groat a year. —Franklin.
Those individuals who save money are
better workmen; if they do not
the work better, they behave better and are more respectable; and I
would sooner have in my trade a hundred men who save money than two
hundred who would spend every shilling they get. In proportion as
individuals save a little money their morals are much better; they
husband that little, and there is a superior tone given to their
morals, and they behave better for knowing that they have a little
stake in society.
No man is rich whose expenditures exceed
his means; and no one is
poor whose incomings exceed his outgoings.—Haliburton.
