This one struck me

Waste your money and you're only out of money, but waste your time and you've lost a part of your life.

Money is a necessity to survive, but don't spend too much time trying to make the money to where you aren't able to enjoy the time that is given to you in life.

Good hub!

Too much money is as demoralizing as too little, and there's no such thing as exactly enough. I so agree with this.

"If you think nobody cares you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments." This quote is my pick of the litter because it is oh so true. Unfortunately the lack of money makes money important. Great quotes.

Two quotes struck me today Maddie! And I'm pondering on them right now..

"It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven't lost the things that money can't buy." AND "It's a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money."

Thanks for this! :)
