The chronological inconsistencies are perhaps most clearly exemplified by the writings of Nicole Oresme. In his Traictie de la Premierere Invention des Monnies, written about 1360, he develops a theory of Money which reveals a very different approach to economic problems from that of his fellow Churchmen.roll, eric, baron roll of ipsden
There are no checks and balances if the gov is wrong, if a private entrepreneur makes a mistake, he goes bankrupt, the losses are cut, if he bets wrong, he loses, if the gov bets wrong, they just get bigger, they just appropriate more Money, it's a bottomless pit, because they either get it from the tax payers or run it off a printing press.peter schiff
I get guilty when I spend Money on silly things like clothes and stuff... Having experienced a completely different extreme of wealth, and I don't mean me being poor or rich, I mean knowing that 40 quid that gets spent on a pair of shoes could go a long way for a family in Georgia for a week or even a month, having experienced that, you're a bit more [guilty].katie melua
Her voice is full of Money.
...the Americans must have the Almighty dollar. Their cupidity renders them daring and indifferent to everything else. It is nothing to them to expose their lives and those of others in order to gain Money. How materialistic these people are!théodore guérin
Fiction is like a spider's web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners. Often the attachment is scarcely perceptible; Shakespeare 's plays, for instance, seem to hang there complete by themselves. But when the web is pulled askew, hooked up at the edge, torn in the middle, one remembers that these webs are not spun in midair by incorporeal creatures, but are the work of suffering human beings, and are attached to the grossly material things, like health and Money and the houses we live in.virginia woolf
I think, therefore, that we ought to take great numbers of hoplites , both from Athens and from our allies, and not merely from our subjects, but also any we may be able to get for love or Money in the Peloponnesus, and great numbers also of archers and slingers, to oppose the Sicilian horse.
Money talks: financing the periphery buys Berlin a leading role recasting the eurozone governance framework. The recent ‘six pack’ of legislative reforms hints at what’s to come: institutionalized fiscal discipline and an excessive imbalances procedure that protects against future moral hazard. The whole eurozone will tilt toward the German surplus model as we get more fiscal integration and more German leverage.ian bremmer
I think Terrell will catch hell at the sound of the bell.He's going around saying that he's a championship-fighter,but when he meets me he fall 20 pound lighter.He thinks that he's the real heavy weight champbut when he meets me, he'll just be a trampNow I'm not sayin' just to be funny, but I'm fightin' Ernie because he needs the Money.muhammad ali
It is uncomfortable to ask condemned people about their sentences just as it is awkward to ask wealthy people why they need so much Money, why they use their wealth so poorly, and why they don’t just get rid of it when they recognize that it is the cause of their unhappiness.Anton Chekhov
Paper is poverty,... it is only the ghost of Money, and not Money itself.thomas jefferson
(About Pop Idols) Obviously, it's designed by record company executives who want a cheap success, and they don't want to give Money to anybody and they don't want to give contracts, so they've created this world of very bubbly teenagers who want to be "idols" and they think all they have to do is mime quite well and they've made it. ... But it's not the problem of the kids, it's the problem of the record companies, because it's just an inexpensive way for them to have so-called, I won't say "artists", but erm...You're nodding, you know what I mean.morrissey
"San Francisco isn’t in the same country as Lakeside anymore than New Orleans is in the same country as New York or Miami is in the same country as Minneapolis." "Is that so?" said Shadow, mildly. "Indeed it is. They may share certain cultural signifiers Money, a federal government, entertainment it’s the same land, obviously but the only things that give it the illusion of being one country are the greenback, The Tonight Show, and McDonald’s."
Money and muscle, that’s what I want; to be able to do any damned thing I want and get away with it. Money won’t do that altogether, because if a man is a weakling, all the Money in the world won’t enable him to soak an enemy himself; on the other hand, unless he has Money he may not be able to get away with it.robert e. howard
I don't like Money, actually, but it quiets my nerves.Joe pseudonym of Joseph Louis Barrow Louis
"It is not Money my aunt thinks about. She knows better than to value worldly wealth above its price."anne brontë
The rich were dull and they drank too much or they played too much backgammon. They were dull and they were repetitious. He remembered poor Julian and his romantic awe of them and how he had started a story once that began, "The very rich are different from you and me." And how someone had said to Julian, "Yes, they have more Money."ernest hemingway
You know lots of criticism is written by characters who are very academic and think it is a sign you are worthless if you make jokes or kid or even clown. I wouldn't kid Our Lord if he was on the cross. But I would attempt a joke with him if I ran into him chasing the Money changers out of the temple.ernest hemingway
Unfaithfulness in the keeping of an appointment is an act of clear dishonesty. You may as well borrow a person's Money as his time.horace mann
Originally, I wanted a machine that would cost $100. My idea was to spend nothing on the console technology so all the Money could be spent on improving the interface and software. If we hadn't used NAND flash memory [to store data such as games and photos] and other pricey parts, we might have succeeded.shigeru miyamoto
At bottom, the court's opinion is thus a rejection of the common sense of the American people, who have recognized a need to prevent corporations from undermining self-government since the founding, and who have fought against the distinctive corrupting potential of corporate electioneering since the days of Theodore Roosevelt. It is a strange time to repudiate that common sense. While American democracy is imperfect, few outside the majority of this court would have thought its flaws included a dearth of corporate Money in politics.john paul stevens
Scientology , how about that? You hold on to the tin cans and then this guy asks you a bunch of questions, and if you pay enough Money you get to join the master race. How's that for a religion ?frank zappa
Who on earth do the Americans suppose their allies are amongst the Arab world? Even Saudi Arabia they seem to regard as nothing more than a resevoir of oil and Money.muhammad reza pahlavi
Making Money out of paper, making paper out of trees We’re making so much Money we can hardly breathetodd snider
In every country unscrupulous wealth can, by artificially "making opinion," mislead and beguile the people more easily and with less chance of detection than in any other way. Democracy has no more persistent or insidious foe than the Money power, to which it may say, as Dante said when he reached in his journey through hell the dwelling of the God of Riches, "Here we found Wealth, the great enemy."james Bryce
