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
Making Money out of paper, making paper out of trees We’re making so much Money we can hardly breathetodd snider
"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."
“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.”
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 ask Congressmen why they have such close relations with Armenia, and they say that the Armenian Diaspora gives them a lot of Money. Is that corruption or not?heydar aliyev
In fact, without any exaggeration, the current mechanism of Money creation through credit is certainly the "cancer" that's irretrievably eroding market economies of private property.maurice allais
The US, for historical reasons, mistrusts the concept of a welfare state, and this mistrust shows itself nakedly under present US government, which commits uncounted billions of the national wealth to what it calls defence, and is close-fisted in giving Money to plans which would ameliorate the grinding poverty of a great part of its people. Quite simply, in Canada you could not get away with that.Robertson Davies
The more I learnt about this cheeky – almost rebellious – company, the more it appealed to me, as it unapologetically pointed to an alternative in a complacent and creatively bankrupt industry. Apple stood for something and had reason for being that wasn't just about making Money.jonathan ive
(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
Liberty is more precious than Money or office; and we should be vigilant lest we purchase wealth or place at the price of inner freedom.john lancaster spalding
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
There are some sordid minds, formed of slime and filth, to whom interest and gain are what glory and virtue are to superior souls; they feel no other pleasure but to acquire Money.jean de la bruyère
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 .
I am more concerned with the return of my Money than the return on my Money.
