18 Awesome Money Quotes You Haven’t Heard Yet

“The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it in your back pocket.” — Will Rogers

Have you ever heard that quote? You probably have; do a search for money quotes, and you’re likely to find it on most lists. Naturally, quotes that came from the mouths of the famous (and infamous) are the ones that we are likely to repeat, share, tweet, insta…you get the idea.

Recently, though, I’ve noticed that there are some sayings I’ve developed and repeat so often that they feel like they’re famous quotes…and they pretty much are in my house. Lately, it’s been “Procrastination will always cost you one of three things: time, money, quality.” (Yes, I live with procrastinators, and I might be one of them.)

My own gem of a quote inspired me to find out what pearls of wisdom other people dispense that probably won’t show up in my Twitter feed. So I asked some of my “money friends” (personal finance bloggers, writers, professionals) what quotable words of advice they are always dishing out regarding money and life.

Here are 18 awesome money quotes you haven’t heard yet.
