Cute piggy bank in a small shopping trolley with the caption money quotes to inspire you or make you laugh

It is so easy to find money quotes and feel overwhelmed by them. Everyone seems to be talking about money. Although we are hearing that more people have less money than ever before. Of course there is also the other side that some people appear to have more money than ever before. 

This has always been the case throughout our history. There is a split between those who have a lot of money and those who struggle to get or keep any money at all. 

Stress around making it and wondering which bill to pay first and which one can be put off a little bit longer is part of everyday life for so many people. 

They don’t even have time to wonder about things. They don’t have money problems, they have a problem about the lack of money. 

Laughter is said to be the best medicine and sometimes it works. I have collected some quotes about money to distract you from the everyday things. Some quotes may motivate or inspire you and some may make you mad at the arrogance of the person who said it. 

There are also some funny quotes to lighten the mood and ones that can be saved and remembered when you need that boost in your day. 

Find the ones that make you smile and the ones that make you think.
