Benjamin Franklin was many things during his lifetime, including a political theorist, an author, printer, an inventor, and an activist. He was also a humorist, and many of his quotes still motivate many people today.

Many of Franklin’s quotes regarding money are about the wisdom of saving it and still inspire people to save money and be thrifty with it.

“If you would be wealthy, think of saving as well as getting.”

Benjamin Franklin

“There’s no denying that money makes things easier. But money for money’s sake is a road with no end. Saving, creating, and building money to serve a goal is a good idea. Hoarding money just to have it just leads to constant dissatisfaction.”

Benjamin Franklin

”If you know how to spend less than you get, you have the philosopher's stone.”

Benjamin Franklin

“If you would be wealthy, think of saving as well as getting.”

Benjamin Franklin

“A penny saved is a penny earned.”

Benjamin Franklin

“Waste neither time nor money but make the best use of both.”

Benjamin Franklin

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”

Benjamin Franklin

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”

Benjamin Franklin

It is interesting to note that many of the quotes by Benjamin Franklin either came from his essay named “The Way to Wealth” in 1758 or his autobiography, which was published in 1789. The essay had already been published in “Poor Richard’s Almanack.”

Franklin wrote and published the almanac from 1732 to 1758. He wrote it under the pseudonym Richard Saunders or Poor Richard. In some of his quotes, he often referred to “Poor Richard” as the originator of the idea behind it.

Books about how to make money, build wealth, or cutting costs to save it are among some of the most popular on the bestseller lists. Some of the people who give advice about money have made their fortunes by selling books on the subject.

Robert Kiyosaki, Suze Orman, and Dave Ramsey, among others, have made fortunes giving good advice about money and saving it. Here are some of their quotes.

“It’s not how much money you make, but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you, and how many generations you keep it for.”

Robert Kiyosaki

“The way to build your savings is by spending less each month.”

Suze Orman

“Make it a priority to have at least eight months of living costs set aside in a federally insured bank or credit union account.”

Suze Orman

“MONTH ONE ACTION PLAN Open a new checking account that is free of monthly maintenance fees. Notify your employer to have your direct deposit sent to the new account. Same with any automatic payments or transfers you make from your checking account—notify every one of the new accounts. Balance your checkbook each month; verify all your withdrawals and deposits and keep track that every bill you pay is recorded as a debit on your account. Open a new savings or money market account that is FDIC insured and carries a high APY. Make it a goal to build a savings account over time that has a balance large enough to cover up to eight months of living expenses. Sign up for automatic deposits into your savings account. If you have more than $100,000 at any one institution, make sure you understand the rules for getting full insurance coverage.”

Suze Orman

“Financial peace isn't the acquisition of stuff. It's learning to live on less than you make, so you can give money back and have money to invest. You can't win until you do this.”

Dave Ramsey

“You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.”

Dave Ramsey

”Saving must become a priority, not just a thought. Pay yourself first.”

Dave Ramsey

“Every time you borrow money, you're robbing your future self.”

Nathan W. Morris

Why Quotes are Inspiring


When times are difficult, an inspirational quote can lift people’s spirits and give them hope. How they are able to do so is difficult to answer. Some experts believe it may be that people appreciate the good turn of a phrase, motivational psychology, or it involves self-selection.

While not everyone likes motivational quotes, millions of people do. Reading them can be a form of coaching yourself and building your self-confidence. People seem to find rhyming quotes more motivational according to a study done in 2000 at Lafayette College. However, metaphors can help get ideas across in quotes as well.

Whatever your reason is for thinking that quotes are motivational, you can find them on almost any subject. These money quotes can inspire you to save for a rainy day, live frugally, or invest it in growing your wealth.

A man who knew how to turn a phrase and inspire people, boxing great Muhammad Ali once said, “If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it–then I can achieve it.” That quote sums up motivational psychology well.
