These are the best money quotes I’ve heard to inspire you along your road to building true wealth.

Sometimes that road feels longer than the Nullarbor, and probably just as rough. Growing your wealth takes patience and consistency and there are many trip hazards along the way. It’s so tempting to spend your money on things you know won’t improve your life. Not the way having proper money tucked away can and does.

So, to keep you on the dry and dusty track towards wealth, having a few of the best money quotes by your side can help. These are words of wisdom from ancient proverbs, historical leaders, industry titans or just people who have been along this road before you. They got there, you’ll get there; you just have to keep on plodding.

I hope there is plenty of inspiration here. They are truly the best money quotes I’ve heard along my own journey.
