Eight Funny Money Quotes to Lighten Your Day

Are having a tough day? Are your finances driving you up the wall? Do you need something to pick you up from that slump? Let’s take a break from the serious side of money and see some funny quotes to lighten up your day.

“Money can’t buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery”
- Spike Milligan

It is true that money can never buy happiness. Just look at some of the world’s richest people who seem to be dead inside with the way they live their life. However, with money, you can buy a ticket to Hawaii, rent a hot air balloon, pay for a clown to entertain you, and get you pizza. It’s kind of harder to be sad with money. Admit it.

“Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale”
- Zig Ziglar

The truth is that money is a necessity along with food, shelter, and clothing because how else are you going to get the other necessities without money?

“Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back.”
- Oscar Wilde

While this is hilarious and true, don’t do it. Don’t borrow money if you have no intention of paying it back because that’s just mean.

“They say money talks, but all mine ever says is ‘goodbye sucker’”
- Jill Shalvis

Money is hard to earn and easy to spend. That’s why you should be vigilant with your money or else it’ll be gone in a blink of an eye.

“Dance like it hurts,
Love like you need money,
Work when people are watching”

- Scott Adams

This quote is a funny parody from the original quote by William W. Purkey

“Work like you don’t need the money,
Love like you’ve never been hurt,
Dance like nobody’s watching”

You can choose to follow either quote or just laugh and be inspired by them both.

“The tooth fairy teaches children that they can sell body parts for money”
- David Richerby

Well, you’ve got to start them young. Children should learn in a fun way about money and business. Although you should probably opt to choose a more light example than the tooth fairy.

“Lack of money is the root of all evil”
- George Bernard Shaw

Another play on the famous saying that money is the root of evil. If you think about it, lack of money is a culprit too because some major crimes such stealing, laundering, and corruption were fueled by the desire for more money. Well, I guess any form of money is a root of evil. Maybe it is better to get rid of your worldly desires.

“Don’t stay in bed, unless you can make money in bed”
- George Burns

This is a great motivation quote. Unless your business is in the bed, get out there and make money for yourself.
