The more anxious, isolated and time-deprived we are, the more likely we are to turn to paid personal services. To finance these extra services, we work longer hours.

I learned to be a hot-air balloon pilot to take tourists over the Masai Mara Reserve in order to earn some money and finance the work I was doing with my wife, Anne.

In the old days we were the challenger brand competing against the big banks, but today I go round the world and I sit with governors of central banks and finance ministers and, in some cases, prime ministers.

I basically see two reasons for a going public: Glencore gets access to more money. It is a way of funding your business and to finance growth. Plus: You have more liquid shares.

I admire the way Barack Obama has raised a dog in the White House without ever putting it on the roof of the car for a vacation drive. -Gail Collins

Campaign finance and ethics reform only works if it curtails all special interest groups equally and does not carve out any exceptions to benefit one party or another. 'Pay to play' reform was passed to limit the influence of big spending contractors over the public officials from whom they are trying to obtain work. -Thomas Kean, Jr.

I had three weeks of prep on 'Wolfman,' a ridiculously inadequate amount of time to try to bring together the fractured and scattered pieces of the production. I had taken the job mostly because I had a cash flow problem, the only time in my career I've ever let finances enter into the decision process. -Joe Johnston

There was no studio involved when we made 'Stargate.' It was financed through Le Studio Canal+ in France and, after the film was finished, it was sold to MGM. When the film was a success, MGM decided to do a television series based on the movie. -Dean Devlin

Everyone says you've got to do a foundation and legal structure to finance social change. What nonsense! -Bill Drayton

Lebanon was at one time known as a nation that rose above sectarian hatred; Beirut was known as the Paris of the Middle East. All of that was blown apart by senseless religious wars, financed and exploited in part by those who sought power and wealth. If women had been in charge, would they have been more sensible? It's a theory. -Roger Ebert

Don't be like my mother when my father had a heart attack. My mother had never handled the finances. I don't ever want to see anybody go through that. Women shouldn't be in that position. -Lisa Caputo

One day I was in Starbucks going through one of my books on accounting, and this beautiful young woman came up to me and said, 'My accounting book is different from yours.'

The more entrepreneurs in the world that are getting their ideas financed, the more great companies there are going to be that we can all invest in. -Fred Wilson

Customers are a great way to finance a business for many reasons. First, customer financing is typically non dilutive. They want something from you other than equity in your business.

When you look at the money spent by labor unions for Democrats, it comes as no surprise the Democrats crafted a campaign-finance 'disclosure' bill with the thresholds adjusted to exempt unions. -Mark McKinnon

There's a cumulative effect to getting good parts as a freelance actor, because you're only as good as your last job, and you have to keep going out and getting them. Unless you're part of the finance structure, by which I mean a bankable star, which I never was and never will be. -Bruce McGill

Because microfinance is so manageable in terms of the size of the loan, people have made it the cornerstone to lifting women out of poverty. -Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

Microfinance does not require previous experience or loans to the same extent as a small-business loan, so it's easier for women to enter the micro sector. -Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

In Britain, polls show large majorities in favour of mansion taxes and higher taxes on the finance sector. -Geoff Mulgan

Where micro-finance focuses on small loans to individual, low-income women, think of Acumen Fund more like a venture capital fund. -Jacqueline Novogratz

My mother works in a bank, and my dad is the head of my management team and also works in finance. -Henry Cavill

I have a lot of stands on a lot of political issues. I'm very big on campaign finance reform. I still think most Americans aren't aware of how the dumping of big corporate dollars and private donor dollars has totally corrupted the political system and taken it away from them. -Morgan Fairchild

I was fortunate enough to model, but it was always work for me. It was a way to support myself and finance acting classes. -Bar Paly

I really love New York, and I've lived here for a long time. I know not just the different neighborhoods but the different kind of class cultures in New York from the up-and-coming, down-and-out kind of artist to the powerful worlds of finance. -Neil Burger

I gladly, I voluntarily gave up the kind of commercial film career I had going as soon as I had enough money to finance my own films. -Francis Ford Coppola

My father, being a Scotsman, taught me to look after finances. I'm shrewd. Some people may call me tight. -Rod Stewart

'Feminist comedy,' practically an oxymoron, had a couple of good years after WWII. Chalk it up to the forced female autonomy that occurred during wartime, when Rosie the Riveter went to work in the factories, constructing the Allies' war machines while taking charge of the finances, the home, and the children. -Grace Slick

We developed microfinance to fight loan sharks – I was telling people don't go to loan sharks – not trying to take advantage and make money for myself. I would be a junior loan shark if I did… It is not a panacea. -Muhammad Yunus

Most regular, two-year MBA programs provide both experience and the capacity to link together the essential elements of management such as finance, marketing, organizational behavior, and operations. -Warren Bennis

I mean, I'm very serious with my kids about them comprehending the intricacies of global finance. -Will Smith

'Savage Inequalities' was about school finance, and 'Amazing Grace' primarily dealt with medical and social injustices in New York. But with 'Ordinary Resurrections,' I had no predetermined agenda. When I met with the children, I was not in pursuit of any line of thinking. In our conversations, I let them lead me where they wanted to go. -Jonathan Kozol

Money you won't need to use for at least seven years is money for investing. The goal here is to have your account grow over time to help you finance a distant goal, such as building a retirement fund. Since your goal is in the future, money for investing belongs in stocks. -Suze Orman

A revocable living trust allows your heirs to avoid probate entirely and keeps you in complete control of your finances while you're alive. You can always make changes to what's in the trust and to how you'd ultimately like it managed or disbursed. -Suze Orman

I can remember when I first went into the Himalayan area way back in 1951. Money, for instance, was not important at all to the local people. But now, finance has become just as important to them as it is to us, and this is a change maybe not for the better. -Edmund Hillary

Show people tend to treat their finances like their dentistry. They assume the people who handle it know what they are doing. -Dick Cavett

When I was dealing with cancer, I was working on a book about finances. I realized that the same methodology that the doctors were using to cure me, you could use to cure your finances. Health and wealth are so linked, it's amazing. -Hill Harper

A lot of the time we think finances are immediately linked to experience, opportunities, image, and all sorts of important things that can progress us in life. Sometimes they're not. Finances can be completely irrelevant if you allow yourself to feel like things are going well. -Natalia Kills

I've seen people be effective, even among local teams, by offering something that improves wellbeing in a small way – people who get passionate about smart investment strategies and managing finances for retirement, for example. -Tom Rath

Landing a million-dollar investment for your startup is exhilarating. But as big as that number sounds, it doesn't go far. Many startups just getting off the ground won't have a CFO to monitor finances. It doesn't take much for spending to spiral out of control. -Ryan Holmes

The very nature of finance is that it cannot be profitable unless it is significantly leveraged… and as long as there is debt, there can be failure and contagion. -Alan Greenspan

I don't think 'Guts' could get financed as a movie. -Chuck Palahniuk

If you ask the government to solve all of your problems, it's a bit like asking your wife to cook and clean, to raise the children, to hold down a second job to help with the family finances, to keep her parents happy and well and keep your parents happy and well, and to also – to do the lawn and clean the gutters. -P. J. O'Rourke

Tom DeLay may or may not have broken campaign finance laws, but he did his best to look like he was breaking them. -P. J. O'Rourke

Nigeria, with the oil sector, had the reputation of being corrupt and not managing its own public finances well. So what did we try to do? We introduced a fiscal rule that de-linked our budget from the oil price. -Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

When I became finance minister, they called me Okonjo-Wahala – or 'Trouble Woman.' It means 'I give you hell.' But I don't care what names they call me. I'm a fighter; I'm very focused on what I'm doing, and relentless in what I want to achieve, almost to a fault. If you get in my way, you get kicked. -Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

Productivity – the amount of output delivered per hour of work in the economy – is often viewed as the engine of progress in modern capitalist economies. Output is everything. Time is money. The quest for increased productivity occupies reams of academic literature and haunts the waking hours of C.E.O.s and finance ministers. -Tim Jackson

Without industry, finance and government consciously and collaboratively ensuring that capital flows to where it is needed in order to ensure the scaling up of climate change solutions, whatever deal is agreed risks never being realised. -Noreena Hertz

The government that came into power after the April 1994 elections was going to need a budget. It was drafted by our finance minister, Derek Keys, and he convinced them of the necessity to stay within the free-market principles that had been in force in South Africa for decades. -F. W. de Klerk

Skating, I think I was told once, is the second most expensive sport. My family's had to refinance three times – they really want to do anything that it takes for my dreams to come true. I hope to one day have a family that I can do that for and kind of give back in the same way that my family gave to me. -Jeremy Abbott

American capitalists, enthralled by the doctrines of finance, have put their income statements in service of the balance sheet. -Clayton M. Christensen

A well-functioning microfinance bank can actually be a profitable business as well. So it became a perfect proof point that, through business, you can provide an experience that leads to individual self-empowerment. -Pierre Omidyar

Microfinance initiatives are very high-touch models. The loan officer meets with local groups of borrowers every week, they share tips and techniques. There's a lot of training and learning that goes on, which adds to the cost of the model. -Pierre Omidyar

The biggest misconception people have about me is that when they see how young I am, they think, 'Oh, this guy must have always wanted to be in politics; his parents must have been politically connected.' I'm a finance major and always intended to go into business. -Aaron Schock

How grateful I am for the law of tithing. It is the Lord's law of finance. -Gordon B. Hinckley

Then she said she'd like to walk down the streets of Jerusalem with her children. So we arranged our family finances and all went to Jerusalem. -Gordon B. Hinckley

When people start talking about venture capital and finances and how to create this and do that, a lot of it, I swear, it's like sitting in an escrow meeting when all you want to do is buy a house, and you're signing 50 pieces of paper, but you have no idea what they're talking about. -Tony Hawk

In post-Vietnam, post-Watergate America, skeptical voters demand full disclosure of everything from candidates' finances to their medical records, and spin-savvy accounts of backstage machinations dominate political coverage. -Virginia Postrel

To finance longer life spans, we must convince individuals to start investing now for the long term. But longevity should be an asset that can be levered, not a curse. They must understand that there's a cost to sitting in cash. No one talks about that cost. -Laurence D. Fink

When I work with countries struggling to pay for budgets or finance trade deficits, I reflect on how Americans do not spend a moment considering the unique advantages of being able to issue bonds and print money freely. -Robert Zoellick

If we can increase the share of Islamic finance for the world, countries can benefit – and certainly, Malaysia can benefit from that. -Najib Razak

My taste in films doesn't lead financers to think they are going to make a zillion dollars. -Alexandra Cassavetes

I would define independent film as a movie that is not financed by any of the smaller film companies. Because then, those are movies that in all likelihood are made without stars. And then they have to rely just on the material. -Steven Shainberg

I like how steady the work in television is. Films, they're hard to come by. They're elusive. I've done a couple, independently financed. You do them, and maybe a few people will see them. -Mamie Gummer

Health care probably contributes a lot more to the common wealth than finance. -Timothy Noah

If you're a teenager in Palo Alto launching an app, you know from the outset how you plan to finance your business. -Natalie Massenet

Big banks have long had private equity divisions that put up capital for deals too complex or risky for individual shareholders to finance. -Alex Berenson

To finance deficits, the government must sell bonds to investors, competing for capital that could otherwise be used to invest in stocks or corporate bonds. Government borrowings raise long-term interest rates, stifling economic growth. -Alex Berenson

Like many other banks and finance companies, Green Tree used a process called securitization to resell its home loans to outside investors. Green Tree grouped thousands of these small loans into a pool worth hundreds of millions of dollars. -Alex Berenson

New York City is the most important location in the world… it is the center for fashion, culture and finance. -Jared Kushner

We had a brilliant upbringing, and we never wanted for anything, even though we went through highs and lows of finances. -Tony Scott

My most difficult class at Harvard Business School would have to be finance. -Tyra Banks

The CIA created, armed and financed the Contras. My father backed them with everything he had. It was my father's war, and almost everyone in Nicaragua has lost somebody as a result of it. I couldn't go down there, being his daughter, and expect not to feel those people's wrath. -Patti Davis

Let's not allow the voice of the people to be overwhelmed by the siren song of those who opposed regulation, who demanded that government should stand aside and let finance and business run the show. -David Blunkett

The people who don't know personal finance have TV shows about it. -James Altucher

The people who know personal finance hide the money very carefully. -James Altucher

Partnering with CNBC will allow Yahoo! Finance to expand its offerings instantly and enhance its position as the most viewed and utilized finance site in the world. -Ross Levinsohn

For me, it's sad to say, but I would probably have a spiritual marriage but not a legal marriage, because I think so much about marriage starts to become about finances. It has nothing to do with God or feelings or the romantic side of marriage. It's about who owns what, who gets what? So what's the point? -Andie MacDowell

Legacy above finances; artistry above fame. -Jimmy Chamberlin

Whether you're managing the finances for a household of one, a business of a thousand, or a government of several hundred million, there's no more important statement of fiscal intent you can make than putting together a responsible budget – one that acknowledges its available means, and makes a reasonable attempt to live within them. -Roy Blunt

There's not one film that I've ever made that could get made today by a studio, not one – even 'A Few Good Men' because it's an adult courtroom drama, and studios do not make them any more. And so every movie that I make, have made and will make is always going be independently financed. -Rob Reiner

If a woman makes a unilateral decision to bring pregnancy to term, and the biological father does not, and cannot, share in this decision, he should not be liable for 21 years of support… autonomous women making independent decisions about their lives should not expect men to finance their choice. -Karen DeCrow

The start-up life kept me busy and surfaced the problem of not being able to stay on top of my personal finances, which led me to invent Mint.com. I was working 80-hour weeks, and had done enough preliminary work and research to know I had a big idea: To make money management effortless and automated. -Aaron Patzer

If you look on Amazon – if you do a search for personal finance, there are literally 20,000 books written on personal finance, and there's no real reason for it. I mean, personal finance is pretty simple. -Aaron Patzer

Mint's business model became, 'We'll go for free, and then we'll find these savings opportunities for you.' You know, better interest rate on your credit cards, when should you consolidate your student loans, when does it mathematically make sense to refinance your mortgage, and Mint figures all that stuff out for you. -Aaron Patzer

I wanted to build a tool for my generation: people 20 to 40 who don't want to spend time balancing a checkbook or checking multiple financial institutions' websites. Mint does just that, giving comprehensive, quick insights into a user's finances from their computer, mobile phone and/or tablet. -Aaron Patzer

I wanted a personal-finance tool for people who didn't want to be accountants: something you could set up in ten minutes and spend less than five minutes a week on. Mint is now that tool. -Aaron Patzer

My issue with campaign finance is 100 percent disclosure. Wear a suit with patches from your big contributors. Depending on the size of the contribution, that's how big the patch should be. -Gary Johnson

Banks were once places to hold money and were very careful in lending to finance families as they built a future – bought homes, bought cars, took out student loans. -Elizabeth Warren

Homeowners refinance their loans when interest rates go down. Businesses refinance their loans. -Elizabeth Warren

Yes, I am a Mexican, and I have a past and a culture. But what matters is the film itself, not where it was financed or cast. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

It was not my wish to come into politics. I was not a public person; I preferred to spend my birthdays with family and friends. But the 2008 elections were fraudulent, so I decided to finance the opposition to make them stronger. -Bidzina Ivanishvili

I think we have to look at the whole way campaigns are financed. The No. 1 problem is PAC and special-interest money. -Stephen Pagliuca

The way we finance homes in this country is slow, filled with middlemen, who run a nonstandardized evaluation process. This makes financing a home cumbersome and difficult. -Barry Ritholtz

Jeff Bezos was one of those best and brightest who came to N.Y. to work in finance. He didn't need to know anything about retail bookselling to start Amazon. -Jose Ferreira

Gone are the days when the upper classes were terrified of the angry mob wanting to smash their skulls and confiscate their properties. Now their biggest enemy is the army of lazy bums, whose lifestyle of indolence and hedonism, financed by crippling taxes on the rich, is sucking the lifeblood out of the economy. -Ha-Joon Chang

As long as we, in the United States, continue to insist that our politicians have to spend all of their time raising millions of dollars for television ads, it will be corrupt. If we leave it up to the politicians to clean up lobbying and finance reform, nothing is going to change. -Kevin Spacey

During my undergraduate training at UCLA, I was studying finance and securities; my particular interest was with mutual funds. Wanting to get into a high position at some of the companies that were doing that, I knew that law would be useful. -Robert Shapiro

Struggling with my finances, nudging toward 50, I sometimes daydream about being happily married to a matching frugaholic husband in a matching Christmas-red tracksuit with matching walkie-talkies as we troll Ralphs, excitedly comparing triple coupons. -Sandra Tsing Loh

Infosys demonstrated to the world that an Indian company could implement standards of quality, operations, finance that compare with the best. That is a legacy I am happy with. -N. R. Narayana Murthy

I was the first businessman to say, 'You should give tax benefit to only small companies. You should say your profits are exempt to a limit of Rs. 50 crore or so, but beyond that, you should pay taxes.' I have been arguing with successive finance ministers on this. -N. R. Narayana Murthy

Many Americans who have suffered during a recession have had to cut their spending 1 percent, and they didn't like doing it, but they were able to do it to get their family's finances back in order. -Rand Paul

The decline in home equity makes it more difficult for struggling homeowners to refinance and reduces the financial incentive of stressed borrowers to remain in their homes. -Ben Bernanke

I've never done a studio movie, let alone worked for a network. Every one of my films has been independently financed. -Lee Daniels

Yahoo is in everything from pets to old people to finance to communications to e-commerce and more, and I really thrive on that. -Jerry Yang

Athol Fugard became famous as a playwright, so although 'Tsotsi' the book was written in the '60s, it was only published in the '80s. It was then optioned pretty much every year by producers. I think the problem was that holding onto its period setting made it very hard to get finance. -Gavin Hood

After my father died, we were pretty much wiped out financially as a family, so I decided to give finance a try. -Leon Black

All around the world, we send our top talent into finance, technology, medicine and law – everywhere but towards expanding opportunity for our most marginalized children. -Wendy Kopp

I kick it when I kick it, but I definitely take care of business. I make sure everything is tight, my finances are tight, my family is tight, my friends are perfect. -Juicy J

Being in the consumer business helps us groom talent in areas like marketing, finance and logistics. We can benchmark our outsourcing business to our consumer business and its best practices. -Azim Premji

At 25, I made many companies. I was thinking more like a businessman or entrepreneur than a CEO. I created many companies, small companies, medium companies. I tried to be involved in many kinds of activities, in finance, in real estate, in mining. -Carlos Slim

I was not thinking about infinite multipliers when I was 10. But I did have a father who was a Ph.D. in commerce and finance and an intellectual man. And so I had a feeling, probably about the time I went to college, that I would try to be a scholar and teacher, but I didn't know which field. -Michael Spence

It's cheaper to buy a house and finance it than it is to rent in many markets. -Barry Sternlicht

We were working on 'Senna' for a long time before we were fully financed, so we didn't actually have an editor for a while. -Asif Kapadia

I'd always intended to make 'Far North' straight after 'The Warrior.' We had the rights to the short story, the script was in development, and I knew where I wanted to shoot it. It just took a long time getting the script together and raising the finance. -Asif Kapadia

I am a graduate in business management with specialisation in finance, and I love accounts! -Tena Desae

I think Matt Yglesias is wrong to declare that the world of 'This Town' is dying, unless he thinks publicly financed elections, strict lobbying bans and Scandinavian-style wealth distribution are imminent. -Alex Pareene

The wealthy are confident in their abilities to overcome bad situations – on the job, in their personal lives, with their finances. Many have triumphed over dismal financial starts. And, unlike most of the population that hops from job to job, career to career, the wealthy are much more likely to stick with what they start. -Jean Chatzky

After two decades of personal finance reporting, I've heard every excuse in the book for not saving money. That said, none of them really hold up – at least over the long term. -Jean Chatzky

If your appraisal comes back too low – you don't have at least 10% equity for a conforming loan or 20% for a jumbo loan – you might not be able to refinance at all, at least with a loan that's packaged and sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. That means you may have to pay a much higher rate. -Jean Chatzky

Joining finances can be tricky. Money has long topped the list of topics couples fight about. -Jean Chatzky

In a relationship where finances are shared, it's important that both people know what's going on. If one spouse likes being the family accountant, it's fine for that person to take the lead, but the other spouse shouldn't be in the dark. -Jean Chatzky

Turning a blind eye to your finances always brings trouble. When you let the bills or late notices stay in their envelopes, you're making matters worse. When you finally have to deal with the problem – believe me, you will eventually – it will be exaggerated because you didn't take action. -Jean Chatzky

If you're comfortable with what you have and who you are, you'll automatically be more comfortable talking about your finances. -Jean Chatzky

Berlin has traditionally backed a rules-based eurozone in which every member state is responsible for its own finances, including bank bailouts, with political union limited to a fiscal overlord's possessing veto power over national budgets that violate the rules. -Yanis Varoufakis

Because I spent many years during my previous life as an academic researching game theory, some commentators rushed to presume that as Greece's new finance minister, I was busily devising bluffs, stratagems and outside options, struggling to improve upon a weak hand. Nothing could be further from the truth. -Yanis Varoufakis

Believe it or not, there are some things that I have written that would be kind of a dream to make. Hopefully, I will get to finance them… There is something that I wrote called 'Demon's Flare' which would kind of be a dream come true. -Steven Seagal

In abandoning the understanding that things – services, goods, wars, and houses – have costs, we risk becoming infantilised, incapable of making decisions about government or finance, and perhaps above all about the environment, the wellbeing of the planet upon which we depend and which our children will inherit from us. -Nick Harkaway

What we mean by an outcome will naturally depend on the context. Thus, for a government charged with delivering public goods, an outcome will consist of the quantities provided of such goods as intercity highways, national defense and security, environmental protection, and public education together with the arrangements by which they are financed. -Eric Maskin

I've lived to see key parts of my research absorbed in textbooks and in central banks around the world. And some finance ministries, too. -Edmund Phelps

A system where self-employment and self-finance was typical gave way to a system of companies having various business freedoms and enabling institutions. This was the 'great transformation' on which historians and sociologists as well as business commentators were to write volumes. -Edmund Phelps

Chancellor Angela Merkel and Wolfgang Schaeuble, her finance minister, are right to oppose fiscal and bank unions without political union. -Edmund Phelps

Narrow banks could restart effective intermediation and ensure that consumers and employment-creating small and medium-size enterprises are adequately financed and can contribute to the reactivation of the economy. -Edmund Phelps

She may hide it, but Clinton is a policy nerd. Ask about microfinance, and she'll talk your ear off. Mention early childhood interventions, and she will gush about obscure details of a home visitation experiment in Elmira, N.Y., that dramatically improved child outcomes. -Nicholas Kristof

I think we need to rethink a lot of business skills. In finance, for example, social impact bonds are potentially a way of providing capital for investments that save the public money in a context in which government often doesn't invest in things that would save it money. -Nicholas Kristof

Unlike economics, whose sole preoccupation in our finance-obsessed era is the near-term profit motive, history offers a way to place our tiny lifespans in a narrative that spans dozens of generations – perhaps even reaching into a future where capitalism is no longer our dominant form of economic organization. -Annalee Newitz

The special sphere of finance within economics is the study of allocation and deployment of economic resources, both spatially and across time, in an uncertain environment. To capture the influence and interaction of time and uncertainty effectively requires sophisticated mathematical and computational tools. -Robert C. Merton

And at a relatively early age, ten or so, I invested my first share of stock. And I used to follow, look at companies and so forth. But throughout the whole period, and indeed right through my college years, while I was involved in the stock market, always interested in finance, I never thought of it as a full-time job. -Robert C. Merton

Within a few months in 2008, household finances were crushed as asset values fell, millions of jobs were lost, countless credit cards were canceled, and thousands of homes were foreclosed on. -Roger Altman

What I'm primarily responsible for is products. Everything is developed with my personal involvement. Second is client communication. Everything to do with product and consumer is my primary focus. I also deal with everything which relates to investment and partnership. Distribution, finance, administration, I don't do. -Roustam Tariko

Students and postdoctoral fellows largely depend on the support of the public sector to finance the training and research that will make them world-renowned scientists. -Carol W. Greider

The transaction cost approach maintains that some projects are easy to finance by debt and ought to be financed by debt. These are projects for which physical-asset specificity is low to moderate. -Oliver E. Williamson

For Randy Neugebauer, the Texas Republican who chairs the investigations subcommittee, the top sources of funding for his 2012 reelection campaign are from the insurance, banking, finance, securities and real estate industries. -Gary Weiss

George Soros is one of the few characters from the world of finance who deserves to be called larger-than-life. -Gary Weiss

I grew up reading '2000 AD' and the occasional Transformers and GI Joe comic, but when I could finance comics myself, I lasted only a little reading superheroes. -Ben Peek

My father, born in Colorado, met my mother, born in Switzerland, when he went into the finance company where she worked and asked for a loan. -Susan Straight

In 'Citizens United v. FEC', the Supreme Court ruled that sections of the federal campaign finance law known as McCain-Feingold imposed unconstitutional restrictions on the First Amendment rights of corporations. -Eric Schneiderman

If I had sat around and waited until I had an idea to be a successful photographer, I would still be in finance. -Brandon Stanton

In July of 2010, I lost my finance job in Chicago. Instead of updating my resume and looking for a similar job, I decided to forget about money and have a go at something I truly enjoyed. I'd purchased a semi-professional camera earlier that year and spent my free time taking photos in downtown Chicago. -Brandon Stanton

Following its recognition as a state in 1832, Greece spent most of the remainder of the 19th century under the control of creditors. The pattern started with a default in 1832. In consequence, Greece's finances were put under French administration. -Steve Hanke

The demand that school finances be transferred away from local school districts to the state and/or federal government has been a long-time favorite of the educationist lobbies. -M. Stanton Evans

If inequalities of taxable wealth backing up a government service are construed as denying equality before the law, then there is no solution but to have every government service whatever financed out of Washington. -M. Stanton Evans

Men have the power in everything: journalism, acting, direction; in banks, finances, schools. All the laws are made by men. Men think that women, when they're not able to procreate any more, become old. That is not true – they are still amazing! -Monica Bellucci

People talk about Hollywood as a myth, but in reality, when you make Icelandic movies and you want to get them distributed in the U.S., you're not really working with Hollywood. The movies I've been making, the first one I made, I made it with Working Title, but it was financed through Universal, so it became a Hollywood production. -Baltasar Kormakur

One of the reasons this election is so important is because the Supreme Court hangs in the balance. We need to overturn that terrible Supreme Court decision, Citizens United, and then reform our whole campaign finance system. -Hillary Clinton

There's a big difference between France and the U.S. In the U.S., immigrants must work to live. In France, they're taken care of by public finances. In France, there are millions of unemployed people already. We cannot house them, give them health care, education… finance people who keep coming and coming. -Marine Le Pen

The massive debt we have racked up to finance our wasteful government is pulling down growth today. Gross debt over 90 percent of GDP weakens growth now. Not tomorrow – now. -Jeff Sessions

Getting married has certainly made a massive difference to my own life. So I am committed to giving support for family finances and having the right policies for work-life balance that make it easier for couples to have a rich family life. -Gordon Brown

I had to deal with terrorist finance. And we had to, if you like, ensure that the accounts of people who were guilty of terrorist finance or using their accounts for terrorist finance were closed down. So we had to do asset freezing. -Gordon Brown

Sound public finances are not the enemy of sustained growth – they are its precondition. -George Osborne

Working people of this country want economic security. The worst possible thing you can do for those families is bust the public finances, have some welfare system this country can't afford. -George Osborne

I came into politics partly because I want to be able to reduce taxes so that individuals have more of their money to spend, so that businesses have more of their money to create jobs, but I believe that lower taxes are sustainable when you get the public finances in order, so I will only make promises I can keep on taxation. -George Osborne

I believe there's tremendous value in having a Supreme Court with a diverse set of experiences – especially when we're dealing with issues that range from our intimate relationships to how we finance campaigns. -Cory Booker

The Netherlands has been severely hit by the debt crisis, and the solution is to lower taxes, get government finances in order, and make room for investment. -Mark Rutte

Art is like a stock with a decent return for people in finance, and they get to feel like they are involved with culture, spend time with artists, as part of their dividend. -Rachel Kushner

You look at marketing: everything that's happening in marketing is digitized. Everything that's happening in finance is digitized. So pretty much every industry, every function in every industry, has a huge element that's driven by information technology. It's no longer discrete. -Satya Nadella

Although it is true that Hizballah is organized, inspired, financed, and armed by Iran, its main bases in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley are under Syrian military control. -Yitzhak Rabin

I think that, in addition of the intersection of media and technology, there has also been an intersection between technology and finance, which is something I find a little closer to home, seeing as I spend so much time covering Wall Street banks. -Kayla Tausche

When SoFi launched in 2011, it focused squarely on the burgeoning student loan market – a market that, unlike housing, had no viable option to refinance both federal and private student loans from higher interest-rate eras. -Kayla Tausche

I think it was very important for me to look at starting to build a safety net so that I didn't feel the insecurity of the ups and downs of finances because I might do no film a year, or I might do six commercials, or I might do none. -Priyanka Chopra

Millennials – who will soon be a full one-third of American adults – may be especially ready to become engaged in politics with a candidate who wants to give them a government that will leave them alone and get its finances in order so that they don't inherit an economic collapse. -Gary Johnson

I get unhappy doing things that I'm not passionate about. Because I feel like I'm squandering this incredible gift I've been given to finance films. As soon as my name alone was enough to make this happen, I vowed to myself that I was going to work with directors who were changing cinema, doing something important, you know? -Leonardo DiCaprio

I took some time off after 'Titanic' because I needed to let the dust settle and recharge my battery. I felt, 'OK, you've been given a tremendous opportunity; what are you going to do with it? Now your name can finance movies that you do want to do.' -Leonardo DiCaprio

I'm part of that original generation that came up playing video games, that pumped a lot of our allowance into video games. We financed the rise of video games. I started playing them in the Straw Hat Pizza Palace at the Carriage Square Mall in Oxnard, CA. -Rich Moore

Climate change joined immigration, job creation, food safety, pilot training, veterans' care, campaign finance, transportation security, labor law, mine safety, wildfire management, and scores of executive and judicial appointments on the list of matters that the world's greatest deliberative body is incapable of addressing. -George Packer

Any constitutional amendment that simply gives Congress the option of regulating campaign finance fails to immediately achieve what the American people want, and that is a complete reversal of Citizens United and other Supreme Court decisions that have allowed corporations and the wealthy few to drown out the voices of everyday voters. -Ted Deutch

What was once a fringe idea – finding a way to use the record levels of overseas capital to finance new projects in the United States – is now mainstream. The support is there; we just have to work out the details. -John Delaney

The Obama Justice Department has decided to cease the prosecution of the Muslim Brotherhood's U.S.-based front groups, identified as unindicted coconspirators in the Holy Land Foundation case – the largest terrorism finance case in U.S. history. -Trent Franks

As a trusted institution with brick-and-mortar facilities in every corner of the United States, our public Postal Service is uniquely positioned to serve as a communications, finance, and service hub for the 21st century. -Marcia Fudge

Rather than do his job and agree to take responsible measures to get our government's finances in order, President Obama continues playing on the emotions and fears of the American people. -Tom Graves

During my administration, we've welcomed a broad and diverse group of industries to New Mexico, including high-tech and traditional manufacturing, health care, information technology and finance. Some are homegrown New Mexico companies; others are global leaders in their industries. -Susana Martinez

Argentina has decided to take its place in the global landscape. We need important companies of the world to finance and construct roads, ports, waterways, energy, trains. We're a huge country that only depends on trucks today. It's impossible. -Mauricio Macri

I financed and made my own films from the start. My path has been autonomous and independent, so I don't have any horror stories about glass ceilings and expectations and tense studio meetings. -Ava DuVernay

I thought it'd be different. Kind of like, a lot of weight lifted off of my shoulders, as I don't have to worry about finances for the rest of my life, or my family's. But it wasn't like that. It was more – there's things I need to get done. -Giancarlo Stanton

You see, in government, people give you a mandate, and you've got to fulfil that. Ours is very clear. Fix our public finances and get our country working. -Enda Kenny

My job is to rectify the public finances and hand the country back to the people so they can really have a future, and that is what I will do. -Enda Kenny

People understand that you have to do difficult things to sort out our own public finances. -Enda Kenny

I see city finances within the context of an economic strategy… We are going to solve our financial problems by growing the economy, and I have rejected some corners that have called for a slash-and-burn approach, and I've rejected others who have called for raising taxes and leaving government as is. -Rahm Emanuel

We have this film that we hope to finance, it's called 'Southern Rights.' It's a documentary about segregated proms that are still happening in the South of America. So there's a black prom and a white prom, so we hope to finance a film soon about that. -John Legend

There are some risks we choose to take because the benefits from taking them exceed the possible costs. Optimal behavior takes risks that are worthwhile. This is the central paradigm of finance: we must take risks to achieve rewards, but not all risks are equally rewarded. -Robert F. Engle

I started studying business and finance in Edinburgh as a backup plan. I was still making music many hours a day, and when I was at university, the electronic music boom started really taking off globally. -Kygo

I am disappointed that Senator Ayotte has voted repeatedly for deep cuts in Pell Grants that would make college more expensive for thousands of New Hampshire students and voted against allowing young people to refinance their student loans. -Maggie Hassan

There are so many young women in film school right now, and it's just about foreign sales companies, domestic sales companies agreeing to finance films directed by and starring women. -Olivia Wilde

Early on, I joined that large group of show business cadets who were 'multi-hyphenates,' 'independents,' 'self produced' or 'alternately financed.' Sometimes, most times, I've had to do it all: raise the money, write the script, produce, direct and act in the film. -Mike Binder

My friends in Paris are writers, or something like that, whereas my friends in New York are doing cool stuff in finance and living very different lives. In writing, it's pretty solitary, so it doesn't really matter who's around. -Whit Stillman

I am Indian, and my home is Kampala. My world is already diverse. But films are financed by those who want to see themselves on screen, and it is a white male world. Still, it does feel like America is waking up. Let's hope it's the start of an avalanche. -Mira Nair

When you think of Yahoo, they had a shot to be what Vox is doing, in terms of taking content and distribution, and really focusing on news, sports, finance – the things that uniquely Yahoo was really terrific at – and really build that whole flywheel. -Susan Decker

My dad works in finance, so he kept giving me the stats: only one in a hundred actors makes it. He'd ask, 'Have you thought about producing?' -Eddie Redmayne

U.S. capital formation, which has been pretty high in the '90s and very high in the late 1990s, is what is being financed by the savings of the rest of the world, generally poorer than ourselves, because our deficit on current account, chronic deficit, is their surplus, and they have been willingly bringing that to the American market. -Paul Samuelson

Something like 'A Single Man,' it was tiny; it was financed by one guy. We all lost money doing it. -Colin Firth

The campaign finance scandal in America is the global warming of American political life – with cash substituting for deadly solar radiation. -Alec Baldwin

For 'Filth,' we had about 12 producers on the thing. The opening credits go on for months. Most of them are actually financers rather than producers. And the only way that we could raise the budget without interference from a studio was to have a lot of different financers on board. -Irvine Welsh

Many progressives understand Scalia, and other conservative judges, in crassly political terms – as opponents of affirmative action, abortion, gun control, and campaign finance legislation. But what Scalia cared most about was clear, predictable rules, laid down in advance. -Cass Sunstein

The Lionsgate deal came at an opportune time. It allows us to get our projects financed and create long-form content without needing to be reliant on brand deals or crowdsourcing for external financing. -Freddie Wong

When it comes to finances, immigrants are far savvier than native-born Americans. They keep their expenses low. They save their money. -Fabrizio Moreira

In the business world, we can point to instances when a lack of integrity has bankrupted entire companies – in sectors as different as finance, telecommunications, manufacturing, and energy. -Rex Tillerson

Businesses in my constituency want help to address the skills mismatch at local level which leaves employers with staff shortages and young people without jobs. They want access to reliable sources of finance, including a network of local banks. -Jo Cox

Access to capital is important for all firms, but it's particularly vital for startups and young firms, which often lack a sufficient stream of earnings to increase employment and internally finance capital spending. -Janet Yellen

There's such a thing, if you're a finance man, as hitting the figures you need to hit. But there's no equivalent in acting. It's a creative field. It's subjective. That's what I love about it. -Will Poulter

My dad's a professor of medicine; my mum was a nurse. My little sister is going into healthcare. My older sister is a nurse; my brother's in finance – I'm the runt of the litter. -Will Poulter

As a company, we have to be very transparent. We are in a business very related to finance, and I want this company to last long, and I want this company to be audited by everyone. -Jack Ma

As much as you need to know your operations, if you don't understand the finance side and how to do the business, you're never going to be successful. So you might be the best operator or visionary, but if you don't understand the finance side… I'm successful because I know the finance side, but I also know operations; it's not an accident. -Tilman J. Fertitta

I know how to finance something. It's easier today because, as you're more successful, everybody wants to do deals with you. But even in the beginning, when I took Landry's public, I owned 100 percent of it. I never had investors or anything. I was just always able to find a way to do it. -Tilman J. Fertitta

It's not a vast right-wing conspiracy. It's a right-wing conglomerate. It's more sophisticated, it's well-financed, it's well known. -David Brock

It's very difficult to explain to a normal working citizen the implications of what $18 trillion in debt means and what it means when the Federal Reserve buys the U.S. Treasury bonds to finance our loss every month. -Steve Wynn

You can get money and make a really cheap movie. You can, from independent financers who are just giving you money to support artists. This is what was happening in the '90s, and I was very fortunate to be a part of that. -Parker Posey

How movies are financed, it's a world market now… I feel like, you know, the independent film way of working is something that was in my bones. It's like being a part of a punk band, but no one's singing punk rock anymore. Only a few bands are able to play, and Woody Allen is one of them. -Parker Posey

As the Executive Chairman of 'Breitbart News' with a long run in business and finance, I can tell you, it's hard to run a company that is infinitesimally smaller than Fox; it takes a steady and experienced hand. -Steve Bannon

I would fight every month. Think about the finances I would have. That would be financial freedom. -Donald Cerrone

The FBI was formed because the gangsters were better armed, better financed. -Michael Horse

I am happy being an actor. Donning the hat of a producer was a tough job and a different experience, as it involved watching the crew's requirements, keeping track of the finances, and also perfecting my role as an actor. But it was a tremendous learning experience. -Nivin Pauly

From the RBI side, the fake Indian currency note is an important issue that needed to be addressed. The other collateral benefits from this, in terms of greater accountability, better public finance, more transparency, are, by definition, areas that take time to fully play out. -Urjit Patel

We think of the Marine Corps as a military outfit, and of course it is, but for me, the U.S. Marine Corps was a four-year crash course in character education. It taught me how to make a bed, how to do laundry, how to wake up early, how to manage my finances. These are things my community didn't teach me. -J. D. Vance

We spend our way to the poorhouse. We buy giant TVs and iPads. Our children wear nice clothes thanks to high-interest credit cards and payday loans. We purchase homes we don't need, refinance them for more spending money, and declare bankruptcy, often leaving them full of garbage in our wake. Thrift is inimical to our being. -J. D. Vance

I just came back from my hometown, making a movie about a kid who grew up just like me, and it was financed by white people in New York. Personally, I can't be angry. In my personal experience, the support was there. -Barry Jenkins

I love spreadsheets. I do all the finances. I pay the publicists. I have to compartmentalize the creative and the business, so there are sacrifices. But ultimately, I get to be the CEO of my own business. -Verite

You have venture capitalists. We view them as experts who also help finance your company and give directions and also some pretty candid discussions about what you have to do better. -John T. Chambers

I wasn't always interested in technology. I had been a student for a long time – I'd earned a bachelor's degree, a law degree, and an MBA – and decided that I wanted to work in a large corporation, focusing on finance and law, in either New York or Chicago. -John T. Chambers

The political gridlock in Washington leads us to conclude that policymakers don't have the ability to put the public finances of the U.S. on a sustainable footing. -John T. Chambers

At Cisco, we are moving to collaboration teams, groups coming together that represent sales, engineering, finance, legal, etc. And we're training leaders to think across silos. -John T. Chambers

By developing deep learning solutions that are faster, easier, and less expensive to use, Nervana is democratizing deep learning and fueling advances in medical diagnostics, image and speech recognition, genomics, agriculture, finance, and eventually across all industries. -Steve Jurvetson

I had the kind of family where I was told it was my job to study. They would work out the finances. -Alexander Acosta

Mississippi's loose campaign finance laws allow lawyers and companies to contribute heavily to the judges they appear before. That is terrible for justice, since the courts are teeming with perfectly legal conflicts of interest. -Adam Cohen

The road to economic well-being is to reward productive economic activity and to provide a moderate and predictable growth of money to finance real economic growth without reigniting the fires of inflation. -Paul Craig Roberts

I was deep into it – worldwide liberation politics as well as domestic – but by the end of the '80s, I had decided it all comes down to one single issue: campaign-finance elimination. -Steven Van Zandt

Once my ears were open to hearing mentions of 'Shark Tank', I was surprised by how many people in our world, even in our industry, tech and finance, loved the show. -Chris Sacca

The important source of finance is now commercial papers, bonds, and so on. -Chanda Kochhar

Over the years, we have financed projects in core industrial sectors like steel, cement, aluminium and petrochemicals, and in manufacturing sectors like automobiles and textiles. -Chanda Kochhar

We have no exposure in Europe and not made any finances to the companies there. So the question of Greek debt crisis impacting the bank does not arise. -Chanda Kochhar

We want to talk to celebrities about the things celebrities don't normally talk about. Like, we'd love to get Kim Kardashian to talk to us about finance. She is a businesswoman, after all. -Jennifer Konner

The biggest issue that we have to contend with is campaign finance reform. -Gaby Hoffmann

The Democratic plan in the 'Affordable Care Act' has, I would say, more government support, more government regulation around trying to protect the finances of individuals, trying to protect people who had pre-existing conditions, making sure that they could actually be in an insurance market and not set off to the side. -Kathleen Sebelius

There are so many people that would be lined up to get their cut that even trying to finance a reboot of 'Frasier' would be nightmarish. -Kelsey Grammer

In the finance world, we used to spend all of our time looking backwards, reporting on what happened. Can I book it? What are the numbers? Now it's about looking into the future. It's about planning and integration. The role of finance is now that of a partner in the business. -Safra A. Catz

I was not a name; I was not a face. I was not going to finance a movie. No one was going to come and pay tickets to see me. -Joe Alwyn

Bitcoin is absolutely the Wild West of finance, and thank goodness. It represents a whole legion of adventurers and entrepreneurs, of risk takers, inventors, and problem solvers. It is the frontier. Huge amounts of wealth will be created and destroyed as this new landscape is mapped out. -Erik Voorhees

If you really think about the fabric of the United States, or the finance of any economy, finance is a true underpinning of what makes the economy great – if it can be done successfully, responsibly, and with a client orientation. -Adena Friedman

If you look at the international markets, for projects that are capital-intensive, the minute the construction phase is completed and production is supposed to start, normally all these loans get refinanced. -Arundhati Bhattacharya

I'm used to always having struggles getting finances together and keeping precarious budgets alive in the independent film world. -Todd Haynes

In the US, banking and finance are regulated on the federal and state level, there are multiple federal bank regulators, and there are separate securities and commodities regulators. -Perianne Boring

Trade deficits are OK under certain circumstance. 1. An emerging nation imports capital goods necessary to enhance its productivity. 2. A developed nation, with a current account surplus, uses some of its investment income to finance the purchases of additional consumer goods from abroad. -Peter Schiff

Britain is the epicentre of financial fraud. Most major players outsource their fraud here because London is the unregulated cesspit of global finance. -Max Keiser

World's major powers, including China and Russia, don't want to 'finance' American military adventures anymore. -Max Keiser

Bitcoin represents the first major breakthrough in economics and finance since double-entry bookkeeping was invented in 1494, and activists need to embrace its power. -Max Keiser

By lowering the barrier to create new digital currency applications, we'll see an explosion in the number of ideas tried. We'll invest in, partner with, or build a number of new applications in this space, including replacements for many of the services people use in finance 1.0. -Brian Armstrong

Our view is that consumer finance – what people think of as retail finance – that arena is ripe for disruption. Bitcoin is absolutely a core platform and asset format that we are dependent on to build this business. -Jeremy Allaire

Almost every day, you see an article in the papers about someone violating a campaign finance law. -Luther Strange

I really love being finance director. -Judith McKenna

I was the artsy one, and my husband took care of all our finances. It was the Latino way – the man is in charge of the money. -Rita Moreno

What would happen if the markets suddenly questioned our ability to keep public finances in check? What would be the effect on growth? -Luis Videgaray Caso

There's been a myth perpetuated where people think, 'I need to go into consulting, banking, finance, law, or medicine to make a consistently reasonable amount of money.' People are now realizing that's not the case. -Fred Ehrsam

Alphabet would be a holding company to house its wackier or noncore efforts – like its Verily life sciences, Waymo self-driving cars, and Loon Internet balloon projects – while Google's advertising-oriented business would stand apart and continue to drive the company's finances. -Adam Lashinsky

No single housing finance institution should be too big to fail. -Jerome Powell

The revenue stream for Social Security benefits comes from payroll taxes, which are credited to the Social Security Trust Fund – accounting for the program's finances separately from the rest of the budget. -Jerome Powell

The sale of Treasury bonds, notes, and bills finances the U.S. government, and those securities are, in turn, a primary vehicle for savings for a wide range of U.S. households. Treasury securities are also an important source of collateral within the financial system. -Jerome Powell

The Federal Reserve is not charged with designing or evaluating proposals for housing finance reform. But we are responsible for regulating and supervising banking institutions to ensure their safety and soundness, and more broadly for the stability of the financial system. -Jerome Powell

The Fed's organization reflects a long-standing desire in American history to ensure that power over our nation's monetary policy and financial system is not concentrated in a few hands, whether in Washington or in high finance or in any single group or constituency. -Jerome Powell

When you're in finance, you see the company deeply – where it's running well and where there's issues you've got to solve. -Jamie S. Miller

I am all for trying to teach household finance in schools, starting as early as possible. And when it comes to high school, I think learning about compound interest is at least as important as trigonometry or memorizing the names of all 50 state capitals. -Richard Thaler

It's hard to have any idea of how much money is enough to finance an appropriate lifestyle in retirement. But if a lump sum is translated into a monthly income, it's much easier to determine whether you have enough put away to afford to stop working. -Richard Thaler

The global boom in commodities fueled by a debt-financed infrastructure and real-estate bubble in China is over. -Kevin Brady

The Eurozone allows for the largely unimpeded movement of people, goods, services, and capital across borders. It has also resulted in unprecedented cooperation on crime, security, and finance among its members. -Pete Hoekstra

It's hard to predict the future, but some people think that Bitcoin could do to finance what the Internet did to communications. -Alex Biryukov

After a while, when the writer is mature, it doesn't really matter – not because of finances but because of reputation. It doesn't really matter how many awards you get. -Derek Walcott

You remember France, it's the country that financed the American Revolution… OK, it was in their self-interest, but still, they made it happen. Let's face it: without the French, there would be no America… in other words, without them, there is no us. -Richard Belzer

Money is the probably the most successful story ever told. It has no objective value… but then you have these master storytellers: the big bankers, the finance ministers… and they come, and they tell a very convincing story. -Yuval Noah Harari

The resources at Harvard – its professors, our fellow students, the libraries, its alumni – created for me the opportunity to pursue my passions in finance. -Kenneth C. Griffin

If you look at Citadel today, that's really – the founding principle of the firm is a real pursuit of talent, a pursuit of people who have a passion for finance, and a pursuit of individuals who make good decisions day in and day out. -Kenneth C. Griffin

In our first decade, I interviewed about five thousand people in pursuit of the talent that would create our future. As our success grew, we became known across the four corners of finance not just for our outstanding returns, but also for our outstanding people. -Kenneth C. Griffin

It is incredible to come to work every day surrounded by individuals whose insights and efforts place us at the forefront of finance. -Kenneth C. Griffin

If you're going into finance, you might be dealing with a lot of sexism and a lot of alpha behavior. How are you going to deal with that? How are you going to feel powerful and comfortable with being who you are? -Amy Cuddy

Donald Trump is an extremist leader who came out of nowhere. He's self-financed, recruits through social media, attracts his followers with a radical ideology to take over the world, and is actively trying to promote a war between Islam and the West. -Hasan Minhaj

I have a saying: There are no brave old people in finance. Because if you're brave, you mostly get destroyed in your 30s and 40s. If you make it to your 50s and 60s and you're still prospering, you have a very good sense of how to avoid problems and when to be conservative or aggressive with your investments. -Stephen A. Schwarzman

There are no patents in finance. -Stephen A. Schwarzman

Some of the people in finance touch enormous parts of the economy. -Stephen A. Schwarzman

I'd encourage more young people to apply their talents beyond finance and consulting and to think about reshaping how medicines are brought to market and how the business is run. -Vivek Ramaswamy

We have to talk about the way we finance campaigns. -Dick Durbin

When you've got African parents, you go to uni, do finance, and go into accounting. But I'm not good with systems. I dropped out in my final year of college to become a Christian poet. Then went back to do my A-levels and went to uni in Birmingham to do political science and theology. I lasted 12 weeks. -Michaela Coel

I have a real kind of fundamental philosophical belief that movies are better if everyone gets paid when they work, and if they don't work, the people who worked on them make a little bit of money, and the people who finance them, they lose, but they don't lose too much. I believe that that creates better work. -Jason Blum

My background is around economics and finance; yet, of course, in professional services, talent is key. And for many of our clients, whatever the industry, they all are coming to me saying their No. 1 challenge is getting the right talent. -Pierre Nanterme

There is a misperception among job seekers that opportunities for women in tech exist only for those with coding or engineering experience.

A tax system is important because of what it can pay for, but also for how it works. When we pay taxes, we expect something back from the state; it strengthens the relationship and accountability between us and our governments.

I don't really enjoy finance and accounting. -Holly Branson

When you are doing music videos through the '90s, which I did, and the 2000s, you were put in the position, really, as an independent filmmaker. You were being financed by a major record company or a minor record company or whatever. -David Slade

There's an awful lot of us who don't quite speak finance, speak money. -John Lanchester

What, for me, was exciting about America was just this extraordinary, complex, difficult, fascinating country, and Britain can feel very small. London, in particular, feels small because everything happens there, so you have publishing, politics, you have finance; everything in Britain happens in London. -Joanna Coles

America's sanctions policy is largely consistent and, in a certain sense, admirable. By applying economic restraints, we label the most oppressive and dangerous governments in the world pariahs. We wash our hands of evil, declining to help despots finance their depredations, even at a cost to ourselves of some economic growth. -Jacob Weisberg

You can take your life into your own hands in terms of directing. There are ways for you to finance yourself and to write and make a film. -Lee Grant

But I also strongly believe in the notion of fundamental individual freedom. -Ron Dellums

The technology is not an end in itself: it is a tool. It can make it easier for us to communicate or manage our finances. It can help us take care of our health or help policemen in their work. It can create jobs and boost growth. It can enhance transparency and accessibility to services. -Taavet Hinrikus

The single most important personal finance decision you make is your career. -Sal Khan

I want to highlight that Italy, every year, sends 6 billion euros in cash to Brussels.
