Quotations for spending

In spending lies the advantage. [ English Proverb, collected by George Herbert ]

Riches are for spending, and spending for honour and good actions. [ Bacon ]

Profligacy consists not in spending years of time or chests of money, but in spending them off the line of your career. [ Ralph Waldo Emerson ]

Love is life's end - an end, but never ending.... Love is life's wealth; ne'er spent, but ever spending.... Love's life's reward, rewarded in rewarding. [ Spenser ]

That which is won ill, will never wear well, for there is a curse attends it, which will waste it; and the same corrupt dispositions which incline men to the sinful ways of getting, will incline them to the like sinful ways of spending. [ Matthew Henry ]
