Foul cankering rust the hidden treasure frets,

But gold that’s put to use more gold begets.

~William Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis (1593)



The only thing that can console one for being poor is extravagance.

~Oscar Wilde



How quickly nature falls into revolt

When gold becomes her object!

For this the foolish over-careful fathers

Have broke their sleep with thoughts, their brains with care,

Their bones with industry.

~William Shakespeare

One’s as wealthy as a king in a palace

Tho’ he’s callous and cold

He may learn to give his heart for love

Instead of buyin’ it with gold

Then the poor man’s roses

And the thrill when we kiss

Will be memories of paradise

That I’ll never miss

Now, if you’re blue

And you don’t know where to go to

Why don’t you go where fashion sits

Puttin’ on the Ritz.

~Irving Berlin, “Puttin’ on the Ritz” (1929)



I’m tired of Love: I’m still more tired of Rhyme,

But Money gives me pleasure all the time.

U.S. Presidents

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists and the hopes of its children.
~President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower (1890 – 1969), 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He was a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II, and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe; he had responsibility for planning and supervising the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942–43 and the successful invasion of France and Germany in 1944 – 45, from the Western Front. In 1951, he became the first supreme commander of NATO.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation then by deflation, the banks and the corporations will grow up around them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.
~President Thomas Jefferson, The Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill (1809)

History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.
~President James Madison

Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
