Personal Finance Challenge #43: Write Down Your Favorite Quotes

I am a big fan of quotes…

Short, powerful, and to the point!

To help keep you on track you should write down a list of your favorite personal finance quotes and post them somewhere you will see them everyday. In the bathroom, on your fridge, on the ceiling above your bed…

Here are just a few of my favorites. Perhaps some of them can be your favorites too!
