Money is like muck

Money is like muck, not good except it be spread.

Francis Bacon

When a man leaves the world, neither silver nor gold nor precious stones nor pearls accompany him, but only the Torah he has learnt and the good works he has carried out.

…He who has one hundred craves for two hundred; and having achieved two hundred (is not satisfied with the same increment, but) desires four hundred.

The Mishnah (oral law complied by Judah ha-Nasi)

Money can’t buy you friends, but you get a better class of enemy.

Spike Milligan
