Quotations On Economy

Economy is a savings-bank, 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 philosopher's stone.—Franklin.

Be 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.

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.
