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."
Collectivists would have you believe that individualism is merely another word for selfishness, because individualists oppose welfare and other forms of coercive redistribution of wealth, but just the opposite is true. Individualists advocate true charity, which is the voluntary giving of their own Money, while collectivists advocate the coercive giving of other people's Money; which, of course, is why it is so popular.g. edward griffon
How nauseating in view of all this to see Fianna Fáil and the Progressive Democrats, the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste, reduce this to a game of scrabble . . . to a matter of finding the right words. We now know that Fianna Fáil ministers see nothing wrong with a Minister for Finance taking large amounts of Money for personal use from business interests as long as there is no proof that any specific favours were done.joe higgins
He had no teeth, and he was slobbering all over himself. I'm thinking, 'You can have your Money back, just get me out of here. Let me go be an accountant." I can't tell you how badly I wanted out of there.jack lambert
For myself, I would much prefer to be stuck with Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament, than stuck with George Bush in the White House. It is the difference between losing your wallet at a cock fight and losing all your credit cards forever, along with your job and your house and your ability to earn enough Money to pay off your sports-gambling debts or even a six-pack on game day. . .hunter s. thompson
Here in the UK, we've now got an evangelical television channel - it's the kind of thing that will be very familiar to everyone in the United States, especially if you've ever turned on your TV set on a Sunday morning, and seen one holy man after another, urging you to send Money so that Jesus can buy a new cadillac. Apparently, Jesus can't save the world until he's been properly kitted out with a million-dollar mansion, and a private jet - some small print in the Gospels that we must have missed.pat condell
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning Money.john updike
The realistic way to reduce the amount of Money in politics is to reduce the amount of politics in Money -- the importance of government in allocating wealth and opportunity.George Will
“We are able to breathe, drink, and eat in comfort because millions of organisms and hundreds of processes are operating to maintain a liveable environment, but we tend to take nature's services for granted because we don't pay Money for most of them.”
The entrepreneur is the person who seeks to identify what consumers, at home or abroad or both, want and would be willing to buy at a profitable price. These entrepreneurs are the job-creators because it is they who gather the men and women, the material, the machinery, and the Money to turn the vision of a market into a reality.
Where a person interposes his interest and good offices to procure a pardon, it ought to be done gratuitously and not for Money.
Not achieving prevents having to overcome obstacles; Not keeping the Money prevents theft; Not flaunting beauty prevents thousand-dollar blowjobs. This is not ‘ Nam . This is bowling .
Public opinion always wants easy Money, that is, low interest rates.ludwig von mises
I am more concerned with the return of my Money than the return on my Money.
