Along with all the Valentine’s Day chocolates, amorous greeting cards and bouquets of red roses, here are some quotes on love and money:

“Money is like love; it kills slowly and painfully the one who withholds it, and enlivens the other who turns it on his fellow man.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

“Money will buy you a fine dog, but only love can make it wag its tail.” ~ Richard Friedman

“Money isn’t everything but it sure keeps you in touch with your children.” ~ J. Paul Getty

“Home life ceases to be free and beautiful as soon as it is founded on borrowing and debt.” ~ Henrik Ibsen

“Money is a needful and precious thing, and when well used, a noble thing, but I never want you to think it is the first or only prize to strive for. I’d rather see you poor men’s wives, if you were happy, beloved, contented, than queens on thrones, without self-respect and peace.” ~ Louisa May Alcott

“A woman’s mink coat represents the sacrifice of a lot of little animals, including her husband”  ~ Mignon McLaughlin

“Money and women.  They’re two of the strongest things in the world.  The things you do for a woman you wouldn’t do for anything else.  Same with money.”  ~ Satchel Paige

“Don’t marry for money. You can borrow it cheaper.” ~ Scotts Proverb

“No matter how hard you hug your money, it never hugs back”  ~  H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

“Work like you don’t need the money, love like your heart has never been broken, and dance like no one is watching.” ~  Aurora Greenway
