50 Wise Quotes About Money, Wealth & Finance

Money rules the world and causes more problems than it solves.

Money is something that tends to command and control everything in life. Everyone needs money to survive in one way or another. We work to earn money and spend money to survive. It’s an endless cycle. The pursuit of money can lead to greed and selfishness and honestly tends to be the root of most problems in life, but then ends up being the solution to a lot of it, too.

I often wonder what life would be like if we didn’t have to deal with money and just traded goods like in the old days? Wouldn’t it make things so much simpler? We wouldn’t have to steal and feel like some people are lesser than others. We would all be equals with no homeless people or people who can’t afford health care or food for people in general. Maybe it would work, right? We could dream, anyway.

Whether or not we want it, money is something that needs to be used more wisely and cautiously in life. People use it to get what they want, and often times they don’t care so much about anything else. Money can make people into selfish and greedy humans that only care about themselves. So we have to fix that the best way we can.

Use these money quotes about finance and wealth guide you in the right direction when you’re looking to make your own decisions about your finances. Use them as life lessons to help you choose the right path when you’re looking for wealth and prosperity.

15 Times Blair Waldorf From ‘Gossip Girl’ Taught Us To Stand Up For Ourselves

The queen of the Upper East Side never takes no for an answer.

The CW Network’s teen drama television show, Gossip Girl, curated some of the most quotable characters in TV teen drama history. The most iconic being Blair Waldorf — queen of the Upper East Side — who was played by Leighton Meester. Even without her copy-cat minions or handsome (and powerful) boyfriend Chuck Bass — played by Ed Westwick — by her side, Waldorf could handle any situation that came her way.

She was fearless, confident, and taught all young girls and women alike to be their own boss.

The TV series revolved around rich (and not so rich) teenagers living in New York City. They gossiped (duh), laughed, cried, and shopped. In the Upper East Side, nothing was off limits and there were no rules to making a claim to fame and fortune.

Blair Waldorf always knew what she wanted. She never took no for an answer — especially from men in power. She dressed how she wanted to and acted with grace, poise, and all around sass.

Serena Vanderwoodsen, Blair’s best friend on the show, played by Blake Lively, went to “B” several times when she needed advice or help. Blair’s advice was always simple: Know your worth!

“B” believed girls are powerful and should not be toyed with. She was always in charge of her own future and never had a problem with knowing her own worth.

Whether it be about boys, money, school, family or her future, Blair Waldorf tackled any drama the best way she knew how — with a confident stride and strong personality that never wavered.

Even though Gossip Girl and Blair Waldorf aren’t able to grace our TV screens weekly anymore (unless you have Netflix), that doesn’t mean you still can’t learn a lot from the queen of the Upper East Side.

Here are 15 iconic lines from Waldorf and the best Blair Waldorf quotes to remind you to always put yourself first and know your worth.

1. Blair Waldorf always wants us to seek a person’s true intentions.

“She likes to see the best in people, I like to see the truth” – Blair Waldorf

2. Blair always welcomed new chapters in her life as new opportunities.

“The thing about new beginnings is that they require something else to end” – Blair Waldorf

3. “I want it, I got
