We will have close to 3 months of rehearsals to learn about 30 songs. Frank usually rehearsed a band for at least 3 months. If it took him that long to be comfortable we probably would need double the amount, but It's just not financially possible to do so. -Dweezil Zappa

I'm not financially insecure anymore either so I don't have to sit there and get on the latest Poison tour just to make money, which is what a lot of them are doing. -Kip Winger

I am here to give the American people some straight talk about higher education. Some have said we might have cut financial aid for college students. The truth is we have expanded access to college for our neediest students through the record growth of the Pell grant program. -Ric Keller

The Iranian regime gives financial support to terrorist organizations all over the world, denies the Holocaust, and calls for the wiping the state of Israel from the map, while developing long-range missiles and trying to obtain nuclear weapon. -Moshe Katsav

In the past there were various suggestions in the framework of financial and other agreements to benefit with Iran. But Iran interpreted those suggestions in a mistaken way and deceived the international community. -Moshe Katsav

The definition of winning has become distorted. If winning the rights to a property brings with it hundreds of millions of dollars in losses, what have you won? When faced with the prospect of heavy financial losses, we have consistently walked away and have done so again. -Dick Ebersol

I didn't have a financial need, and I wasn't very gifted at relationships. I probably was more like what we think of boys as being: hard to pin down and wary of commitment. -Candice Bergen

Financially, I've lost money and made money, but I know my way around financially. -Jack Nicholson

Over the last six years, airlines have experienced severe financial pressure to leave smaller communities, making demands on the EAS program even greater. -Nick Rahall

That inefficiency is masked because growth and progress are measured in money, and money does not give us information about ecological systems, it only gives information about financial systems. -Paul Hawken

The financial capital is being concentrated by corporations, institutional investors, and even our pension funds, and being reinvested in companies that repeat this process because it provides the highest return on that financial capital. -Paul Hawken

We can no longer afford the war in Iraq. Our financial costs have already passed a third of a trillion dollars; the lifetime costs for this war, in both human and economic terms, will be borne by Americans for generations to come. -Earl Blumenauer

And then you might decide that the country can just spend maybe years or decades to regain that credit, or maybe give that county the support, the financial support that the market is not willing not do. -Rodrigo Rato

Most cases, I would say, in a huge amount of cases, countries that have worked with us and have used our financial facilities have come out quick… more quickly and in a better shape from a crisis than would have come out otherwise. -Rodrigo Rato

Well, financially it's a little bit better. But it's better than than when I was a teacher. But I kind of – it's allowed me to buy a house. And I've been able to help my mother with some stuff and my brother. So, that's nice. -Clay Aiken

For this to make sense, of course, it would have to be a fair financial deal for us. But I think this could be the occasion for us to build a true partnership in content. And we're especially interested because interactive services are a key field for us. -Jean-Marie Messier

Look at the product pipeline, look at the fantastic financial results we've had for the last five years. You only get that kind of performance on the innovation side, on the financial side, if you're really listening and reacting to the best ideas of the people we have. -Steve Ballmer

I come back to the same thing: We've got the greatest pipeline in the company's history in the next 12 months, and we've had the most amazing financial results possible over the last five years, and we're predicting being back at double-digit revenue growth in fiscal year '06. -Steve Ballmer

I kept an interested eye on the transfer window in England, which opened and closed last month, and the lack of frantic activity just goes to show the current financial state of the game right now. -David Ginola

I'm more financially successful, but it just means the shopping blunders I make are bigger now. -Cathy Guisewite

It's never been more important for borrowers to arm themselves with knowledge and build sound financial-management skills. -Robert Manning

I know at last what distinguishes man from animals; financial worries. -Romain Rolland

Divorce is one of the most financially traumatic things you can go through. Money spent on getting mad or getting even is money wasted. -Richard Wagner

While expanding market access for American industry, financial markets and farmers is critical, I believe it needs to be done responsibly, accounting for the treatment and protection of workers and the environment. -Mark Udall

It's not easy to part with the trophies. However, I do need to have some long-term financial security for those close to me. -Bjorn Borg

Business chief executive officers and their boards succumb to the pressures of the financial markets and their fears of takeovers and pour out their energies to produce quarterly earnings – at the expense of building their companies for the long term. -J. Irwin Miller

I believe my publisher has shown a great deal of faith in me over a lot of years but I'm not prepared to be so arrogant to say that the long-term literary value of my work would compensate them for a financial failure. -Andrew Vachss

A tragic irony of life is that we so often achieve success or financial independence after the chief reason for which we sought it has passed away. -Ellen Glasgow

The Republicans are looking after the financial interests of the wealthiest individuals in this country. -Edward Kennedy

I take great pride in having been able to overcome the Asian financial crisis and seeking the opportunities available to bring about an unprecedented growth in the economy. -Zhu Rongji

Our mission, as set forth by the Congress is a critical one: to preserve price stability, to foster maximum sustainable growth in output and employment, and to promote a stable and efficient financial system that serves all Americans well and fairly. -Ben Bernanke

Derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction. -Warren Buffett

There is a basic lesson on financial crises that governments tend to wait too long, underestimate the risks, want to do too little. And it ultimately gets away from them, and they end up spending more money, causing much more damage to the economy. -Timothy Geithner

As financial markets continue to broaden and deepen, the behavior of asset prices will play an important role in the formulation of monetary policy going forward, perhaps a more important role than in the past. -Timothy Geithner

In the financial system we have today, with less risk concentrated in banks, the probability of systemic financial crises may be lower than in traditional bank-centered financial systems. -Timothy Geithner

We judged that a sudden, disorderly failure of Bear would have brought with it unpredictable but severe consequences for the functioning of the broader financial system and the broader economy, with lower equity prices, further downward pressure on home values, and less access to credit for companies and households. -Timothy Geithner

This crisis exposed very significant problems in the financial systems of the United States and some other major economies. Innovation got too far out in front of the knowledge of risk. -Timothy Geithner

Looking past the immediate crisis, a more resilient system must be built on stronger and better designed shock absorbers, both in the major institutions and in the infrastructure of the financial system. -Timothy Geithner

The President and the Democrats on Congress have exploited the financial crisis to advance their socialist big government tax, spend and borrow agenda. -Bradley A. Blakeman

The rest of the world needs the US economy and financial system to recover in order for it to revive. We remain at the center of global economic activity with financial and trade ties to every region of the globe. -Timothy Geithner

Never before in modern times has so much of the world been simultaneously hit by a confluence of economic and financial turmoil such as we are now living through. -Timothy Geithner

I took a route of acting, rather than starmaking, so it cost me a lot financially. -Vincent D'Onofrio

Workshops and seminars are basically financial speed dating for clueless people. -Douglas Coupland

I believe that the profits will come from the quality of your creative products. Since the beginning, I've always wanted to develop a self-feeding circle of creative productions: the positive financial returns from one show would be used to develop and create a new show, and so on. -Guy Laliberte

We are in a position of financial and social power, and we could be agents of change in our society. Without pretension, I believe we could be a nice little gardener who takes care of the garden, and hopefully our neighbor will do the same. Then, maybe we'll achieve a better world. -Guy Laliberte

What we're going to do is redouble our efforts on financial regulatory reform, because that has in it sensible things like say on pay, so at least the shareholders are minding the store, sensible things like saying, for heaven's sakes, compensation should be focused on – on long term, so that you don't have rewards for short-term risk-taking. -Christina Romer

You know, I think the, the crucial thing, you know, we have put in place what is, is just simply the biggest, boldest recovery package in history, right; the stimulus package, biggest ever; the financial rescue, absolutely comprehensive; a housing plan – that is incredible medicine for the economy. And we fully expect it to work. -Christina Romer

We are inheriting the worst financial system since the Depression. We're inheriting a situation – when people go back and study major banking crises a quarter century from now, the one that America developed in 2007 and 2008 is going to be one of those crises. -Lawrence Summers

Well, I think that there's a very thin dividing line between success and failure. And I think if you start a business without financial backing, you're likely to go the wrong side of that dividing line. -Richard Branson

You need in the long run for stability, for economic growth, for jobs, as well as for financial stability, global economic institutions that make sure that growth to be sustained has to be shared, and are built on the principle that the prosperity of this world is indivisible. -Gordon Brown

So another challenge for our generation is to create global institutions that reflect our ideas of fairness and responsibility, not the ideas that were the basis of the last stage of financial development over these recent years. -Gordon Brown

In the absence of sound oversight, responsible businesses are forced to compete against unscrupulous and underhanded businesses, who are unencumbered by any restrictions on activities that might harm the environment, or take advantage of middle-class families, or threaten to bring down the entire financial system. -Barack Obama

Investment banking has, in recent years, resembled a casino, and the massive scale of gambling losses has dragged down traditional business and retail lending activities as banks try to rebuild their balance sheets. This was one aspect of modern financial liberalisation that had dire consequences. -Vince Cable

It took us years to get into the mess that we got ourselves in at the end of 2008, and it's going to take a while to get us out. We lost eight million jobs, we saw a financial system near collapse, we have a continuing housing crisis that we're making progress on dealing with. -Robert Gibbs

Investing in auto companies and ensuring a financial collapse didn't lead not from a recession to a great depression may not have been the most popular thing to do, but it was the right thing to do. -Robert Gibbs

Every one says: 'Listen, I'd love to reinvest. I'd love to hire people. But I have no idea what this healthcare bill is going to do to my bottom line. I have no idea what this financial reform bill is going to do… I'm not going to step out a limb and do any of those until I know what this government is going to do to me.' -Kristi Noem

In the 20th century, the United States endured two world wars and other traumatic and expensive military conflicts; the Depression; a dozen or so recessions and financial panics; oil shocks; a flu epidemic; and the resignation of a disgraced president. Yet the Dow rose from 66 to 11,497. -Warren Buffett

The financial crisis should not become an excuse to raise taxes, which would only undermine the economic growth required to regain our strength. -George W. Bush

So, for example, a country was into recession right after I was sworn in, a dot-com bust had taken place. Then the attacks of September the 11th, and then of course the great financial meltdown in the -the fundamental question facing any presidency is how do you deal with the hand you're dealt? -George W. Bush

Over and over again, financial experts and wonkish talking heads endeavor to explain these mysterious, 'toxic' financial instruments to us lay folk. Over and over, they ignobly fail, because we all know that no one understands credit default obligations and derivatives, except perhaps Mr. Buffett and the computers who created them. -Richard Dooling

We're on the verge of a financial collapse unless we balance the budget, and that means some really, really tough decisions. -Gary Johnson

Prices are going up. Unemployment continues to go up. And we have not had the necessary correction for the financial bubble created by our Federal Reserve system. -Ron Paul

If our nation goes over a financial Niagara, we won't have much strength and, eventually, we won't have peace. We are currently borrowing the entire defense budget from foreign investors. Within a few years, we will be spending more on interest payments than on national security. That is not, as our military friends say, a 'robust strategy.' -Mitch Daniels

At a time when the GOP is playing games with the debt limit, a member of the Supreme Court is refusing to recuse himself from matters he has a financial interest in, and middle class incomes are stagnant, many want to change the subject. I don't. This was a prank, and a silly one. I'm focused on my work. -Anthony Weiner

There is a lesson there about greed and it is a lesson I am willing to learn as well. Has it made me a distrustful person? I don't think so. But we probably look a bit more carefully at our financial situation now. -Kevin Bacon

If you don't have a functioning financial system the world economy won't be revived. All the major economies have their responsibility to assist at a pace which is required to clean up the balance sheet of the banking system and to ensure that credit flows are resumed. -Manmohan Singh

I think there's no question but what the tail end of the Bush administration, Bush-Cheney administration, that we took steps specifically geared to try and free up the financial sector. -Dick Cheney

I do not understand how it is that financial institutions could think that they could take taxpayer money and then turn around and act like it's business as usual. I don't understand how they can't see that the world has changed in a fundamental way, that it is not business as usual when you take taxpayer dollars. -Elizabeth Warren

If there had been a Financial Product Safety Commission in place 10 years ago, the current financial crisis would have been averted. -Elizabeth Warren

I get heartfelt thanks from all kinds of people. Today I heard from a waitress in Georgia who has lost her job and is trying to figure out how her local bank can change the terms on her credit card, and I heard from a physicist at a major research university who wants to explain a better theory of financial stress tests. -Elizabeth Warren

It is critical that the American people, and not just their financial institutions, be represented at the negotiating table. -Elizabeth Warren

Being rich is a good thing. Not just in the obvious sense of benefitting you and your family, but in the broader sense. Profits are not a zero sum game. The more you make, the more of a financial impact you can have. -Mark Cuban

I'm trying to set up opportunities for myself so that I don't only have one outlet to go through and rely upon as far as a support system financially, emotionally and mentally. -Busta Rhymes

I don't think the AAA is an end in itself; we will maintain prudent financial management with or without the AAA. -Jay Weatherill

We are in a situation with the huge stimulus package that's going to be spent all across this nation and a big financial crisis and banking crisis. And what we need is good, trained journalists who can play the role of watchdog. -Walter Isaacson

I think one problem we've had is that people who are smart and creative and innovative as engineers went into financial engineering. -Walter Isaacson

We've never been people that go around and confront people that have been financially successful and say, 'We hate you. We envy you because of how well you're doing.' -Marco Rubio

My parents were working class folks. My dad was a bartender for most of his life, my mom was a maid and a cashier and a stock clerk at WalMart. We were not people of financial means in terms of significant financial means. I always told them, 'I didn't always have what I wanted. I always had what I needed.' My parents always provided that. -Marco Rubio

My mother inspired me to treat others as I would want to be treated regardless of age, race or financial status. -Tommy Hilfiger

Racism is a way to gain economic advantage at the expense of others. Slavery and plantations may be gone, but racism still allows us to regard those who may keep us from financial gain as less than equals. -Alveda King

The financial crisis in our country is not a passing storm. Given the size of the problems, our national effort will not be completed in 2012. It will take many years and will require the efforts and insistence of several governments. -Lucas Papademos

The participation of our country in the eurozone is a guarantee for the country's monetary stability. It is a driver of financial prosperity. -Lucas Papademos

I think the funds that have been pledged at Euro Summit, combined with the outcome of the private sector involvement process should be sufficient in order to support financially the Greek Economy. -Lucas Papademos

If we didn't have the Albanian entrepreneurial spirit and financial support from the diaspora, this stupid political class would have destroyed the country by now. -Fatos Nano

No one, no social group, can today avoid the commitment to contribute to the clean up of public finances in order to prevent the financial collapse of Italy. The sacrifices will not be in vain, especially if the economy begins to grow again. -Giorgio Napolitano

I realize what it means to be financially comfortable, and I want to be that. But I'm lucky enough to be in that position. And I'm also careful. I save 38 percent of my earnings after expenses, before taxes. -David Duval

President Obama inherited a broken country mired in two wars, a financial crisis, a mortgage mess and more than we all probably even know about and has in my opinion brought us back from the brink. But I still see my friends in no better shape and the gap widening. -Don Cheadle

I want to see somebody go to jail over the financial crisis and not just black, brown and poor whites over humbles and minor drug beefs. -Don Cheadle

Recently released government economic statistics covering 2010, the first year of real recovery from the financial collapse of 2008, found that fully 93 percent of additional income gains coming out of the recession went straight into the wallets and purses of the top 1 percent. -Eric Alterman

If newspapers were a baseball team, they would be the Mets – without the hope for those folks at the very pinnacle of the financial food chain – who average nearly $24 million a year in income – 'next year.' -Eric Alterman

After joining as a youth trainee at 16 from school, in my first two or three years the club was on a financial downward spiral and there was none of the new sparkling kit and the sparkling conditions that the kids get now. -Colin Cooper

We have been spending beyond our means, we are going to focus on the projects that we committed to in the election but importantly if there is additional projects or new things that come up they have to have a business case, they have to work and they can't impose financial stress on families and private individuals and businesses. -Campbell Newman

I can tell you that when I travel the state, when I talk to people, they are really struggling, in a very real way. They're losing their jobs, they're losing their homes, they're dealing with financial challenges. -Alexi Giannoulias

I'm in the lucky position financially where I don't have to do things I don't want to do. -Amanda Holden

Women know the financial, social and physical costs of not having access to basic health care. -Martha Plimpton

I don't want to drive the markets crazy. I don't want to create trouble, but rather order and rules and norms. We have to struggle against financial excesses, those who speculate with sovereign debt, those who develop financial products which have done so much harm. -Francois Hollande

The British have been particularly shy about the issues of financial regulation, and attentive only to the interests of the City – hence their reluctance to see the introduction of a tax on financial transactions and tax harmonisation in Europe. -Francois Hollande

It's great that people get together and collaborate, talk about the facts and the analysis, all in the interest of having a great financial system. -Jamie Dimon

It is vital for officials and regulators to have input from people within our businesses who understand the intricacies of how financial markets operate and the consequences of certain policy decisions. -Jamie Dimon

If the colonists hadn't rejected British militarism and the massive financial burden of maintaining the British military, America wouldn't exist. -Rachel Maddow

I think people like to think I'm in some way financially dependent on my family – on my dad – but the fact of the matter is I've been emancipated from my father since I was 14 years old. That's something people don't know or understand. -Devon Aoki

I like very strong guys. Successful guys. Not necessarily financially. -Ivanka Trump

As an actor, to have achieved financial stability is amazing. But I always have this weird fear that I'm not going to get any more work; it's about not having enough money. -Paul Giamatti

There was a clarity to the Nineties. It was pre-9/11, before that anxiety kicked in that exists right now about the financial crisis or terrorism. We were all just going to move forward into the millennium and everything was always going to get better. Then, whoops, that didn't happen. -Carrie Brownstein

Everything that I've gone through since the end of 2010, from me finding out about my financial adviser stealing, mismanaging my money – that affected everything, from child support, mortgages, to me having to sell my properties, me being in and out of court trying to modify my child support. It's a lot to deal with at one time. -Terrell Owens

Everyone in life has their challenges, mine have not been financial. -Ann Romney

I think, in a lot of ways, celebrities represent the American dream. They have financial fluidity and options at their disposal. -Adrian Grenier

I'm a big advocate of financial intelligence. -Daymond John

I enjoy my life, I love track, I'm set for life financially. -Carl Lewis

I'm so not a financial person. -Cynthia Nixon

There's every financial incentive in the world to stay in the conservative movement forever. -David Brock

In the history of comics and movies and music too, it's always when things are at their bottomed-out, either creatively or financially, there's more chance-taking going on. -Brian Michael Bendis

You look at the steamboat, the railroad, the car, the airplane – not all of these were invented in the Anglo-American world, but they were popularized and extended by it. They were made possible by the financial architecture, the capital intensive operations invented and developed by the Anglo-Americans. -Walter Russell Mead

There has to be a balance between your mental satisfaction and the financial needs of your company. -Alexander McQueen

We don't have the money in America to keep paying for the education of everybody else's children from around the world. We simply don't have the financial resources to do that. -Mo Brooks

We're all concerned about the budget. We're all concerned about what's happening financially in our country. There's no question about it. Congress is working day and night. In fact, every time I go home the lights are on at the top of the Capitol. -James F. Amos

Together with a team of financial and legal experts I have spent months exploring all possible alternatives to bankruptcy but to no avail. -Shane Filan

I find it very difficult to see a scenario where financial regulation doesn't pass the Senate. -Bob Corker

My parents weren't extremely successful financially, but they were happy people. They gave me confidence. -Jack Wagner

Any new financial order for the world must tackle the three chief challenges of our age. -James Buchan

I never had the financial means that the media said I had. I laugh when I hear the amounts, $400 million, $800 million. Where do they get this imagination? -Jean-Claude Duvalier

CNBC is a very serious-minded financial news network, and what we've seen thus far from Fox appears to be not as investment-focused or financially focused, and that's good for us. -Jeff Zucker

It's financially advantageous to make a picture in Berlin, Germany. They have a very effective rebate system. -Joel Silver

You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he's been financially. He's a very generous person. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person that is trying to hide things, or do things? No. -Ann Romney

And we've given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. And so, the election, again, will not be decided on that. It will be decided on who is gonna turn the economy around and how are jobs gonna come back to America. -Ann Romney

The key to making healthy decisions is to respect your future self. Honor him or her. Treat him or her like you would treat a friend or a loved one. A Stanford study showed that those who saw a photo of their future self made smarter financial decisions. -A. J. Jacobs

The political ramifications of our festering financial and economic crisis have reached the sidewalks of New York, as well as other large and small cities across the US. -Jerry A. Webman

My dad loves what I do and I support my parents financially because they didn't have a job that gave them a pension. -Marilyn Manson

Now financial liberalization is just a catastrophe waiting to happen, and there are very well understood reasons for that. -Noam Chomsky

As mayor of Milwaukee, I've had many developers come and many businesses come and have asked for financial assistance from the city, and my questions have always been: how many jobs are we talking about and are these family-supporting jobs. -Tom Barrett

Since 1994, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have considered it politically risky to offer a plan to fix America's broken health care system. The American public, though, has paid the price for this silence as health care costs skyrocketed, millions went uninsured, and millions more grappled with financial insecurity and hardship. -Ron Wyden

I get the feeling a lot of politicians are there to help themselves financially, first and foremost. I don't really need to do that, and I thought if I could do something for sport in Scotland, that would be really fulfilling. -Gordon Strachan

Someone needs to remind American CEOs that if you can't run a company that is innovative, financially sound and doesn't poison the rest of us, You can't run a company. -Hal Sparks

There was no blueprint or how-to manual for fixing a global financial meltdown, an auto crisis, two wars and a great recession, all at the same time. -Rahm Emanuel

We also must pull from our highest ideals of justice and protect against those ills that destabilized our economy – like predatory lending, over-leveraged financial institutions and the unchecked avarice of the past that trumped fairness and common sense. Our platform calls for significant cuts in federal spending. -Cory Booker

The list of companies that have added their own financial metrics is not a savory group. -Andrew Mason

I was on significant financial aid, an only child, with parents who didn't have much living in North Carolina. -Chris Hughes

I'd be kidding if I said that I predicted the financial collapse. -Fareed Zakaria

I'm largely in favor of financial reform. -Fareed Zakaria

We should not have the U.S. government buying stock in American industries – the financial industry or any other industry. -Rand Paul

Households and businesses cut expenses every day. Passing a financial down payment alongside the debt limit sends the right message to the public, and gives members of Congress greater comfort, or cover, depending on your perspective. -John Sununu

Concentrating wealth in the hands of the few and deregulating financial institutions and practices lead to speculative bubbles that eventually burst – and that brings the whole country down. -Jennifer Granholm

I'm a lad of the '60s. I started a magazine to try and end the Vietnam war, but it was a number of years before I had the profile, the financial resources and the time to do more. -Richard Branson

The financial industry is a service industry. It should serve others before it serves itself. -Christine Lagarde

A big part of being in a wedding is the financial obligation, and that's something that people don't really talk about, but if you're asked to be in a wedding, you're gonna have to fork over some cash. -Kristen Wiig

In my family, there was one cardinal priority – education. College was not an option; it was mandatory. So even though we didn't have a lot of money, we made it work. I signed up for financial aid, Pell Grants, work study, anything I could. -Eva Longoria

The Obama administration's large and sustained increases in debt raise the specter of another financial crisis and large future tax increases, further chilling business investment and job creation. -Glenn Hubbard

I think the ethos for Gov. Romney is to use a whole variety of policies, of which tax policy is one, to try to raise the rate of growth. We've had a recovery from the financial crisis that would be well below what one might normally expect for a recovery from such a deep recession. And to counteract that we need better tax policy. -Glenn Hubbard

President Obama has basically avoided or not done any attempt to intervene in any positive way in the housing market. I think in the financial crisis that's been a shame. -Glenn Hubbard

I called my business manager in California and said, 'Sell all of my stock' – what little of it I had – and it's the only smart financial move I ever made. -Lauren Bacall

The only thing I have no control over is the politics that goes on within the record company. It's always been the same, but it's far tougher now, because record companies are run by financial people; before, they were run by creative people. -Enrique Iglesias

The welfare state is collapsing all around us. There are people that realize that we can't go on this way, but I'm not sure how many people realize how close we are to the collapse of the U.S. financial system. -Rush Limbaugh

Developments in financial markets can have broad economic effects felt by many outside the markets. -Ben Bernanke

The lesson of history is that you do not get a sustained economic recovery as long as the financial system is in crisis. -Ben Bernanke

Importantly, in the 1930s, in the Great Depression, the Federal Reserve, despite its mandate, was quite passive and, as a result, financial crisis became very severe, lasted essentially from 1929 to 1933. -Ben Bernanke

Well, the U.S., of course, is the world's largest economy. It's about a quarter of the world's output. It's also home to many of the largest financial institutions and financial markets. -Ben Bernanke

The crisis in Europe has affected the U.S. economy by acting as a drag on our exports, weighing on business and consumer confidence, and pressuring U.S. financial markets and institutions. -Ben Bernanke

I still love football, though, and I think cooking is like football. It's not a job, it's a passion. When you become good at it, it's a dream job and financially you need never to worry. Ever. -Gordon Ramsay

Not every financial company toppled during the 2008 crisis, and some seized the opportunity to take advantage of weaker competitors in the midst of the tumult. -James C. Collins

Obama seemed poised to realign American politics after his stunning 2008 victory. But the economy remains worse than even the administration's worst-case scenarios, and the long legislative battles over health care reform, financial services reform and the national debt and deficit have taken their toll. Obama no longer looks invincible. -Dee Dee Myers

I don't think the Palestinian people or Afghan children or some other things I'm concerned about are at the top of other people's agendas – not right now, when America is going through such a recession and people are suffering across the board financially. But I think all that will change. -Patti Smith

I get the feeling a lot of politicians are there to help themselves financially, first and foremost. -Gordon Strachan

I merely consider myself a father, and one role of a father is to provide financial resources for his family. -Guy Kawasaki

The financial costs of family breakdown are incredibly high. -Iain Duncan Smith

The middle and working classes are paying the debt that the financial markets created. -Javier Bardem

I don't think I've ever made any good financial decisions. -Roger Moore

The new social question is: democracy or the rule of the financial markets. We are currently witnessing the end of an era. The neoliberal ideology has failed worldwide. The U.S. movement Occupy Wall Street is a good example of this. -Sigmar Gabriel

In Germany it is good if as many people as possible join initiatives and peaceful demonstrations against the rule of the financial markets. Worshipping the unfettered freedom of global markets has brought the world to the brink of ruin. We now need social and ecological rules for the market economy. -Sigmar Gabriel

Taming the financial markets and winning back democratic control over them is the central condition for creating a new social balance in Germany and Europe. -Sigmar Gabriel

The world economy today is recovering slowly, and there are still some destabilising factors and uncertainties. The underlying impact of the international financial crisis is far from over. -Hu Jintao

From the ashes of a financial crash, there is a chance to create a new economic settlement that is more equal, sustainable and democratic. -Frances O'Grady

If we get our self-esteem from superficial places, from our popularity, appearance, business success, financial situation, health, any of these, we will be disappointed, because no one can guarantee that we'll have them tomorrow. -Kathy Ireland

My job requires me to put on a little dress and run around the streets of New York in heels. But I also had the financial means to hire a yoga teacher to come to my house while my sitter watched the newborn. For 95 percent of the world, that's not realistic. -Sarah Jessica Parker

I agree that there are some bad apples on Wall Street. I spent about ten years exposing corporate and financial fraud for 'Barron's' magazine and I found a lot to write about. -Ben Stein

One of the greatest gifts my father gave me – unintentionally – was witnessing the courage with which he bore adversity. We had a bit of a rollercoaster life with some really challenging financial periods. He was always unshaken, completely tranquil, the same ebullient, laughing, jovial man. -Ben Okri

I work hard, I make my own living and I love it. I like having financial independence. -Salma Hayek

With the lessons taken from the financial crisis in 1997, the Republic of Korea has been able to surmount the global economic crisis rather successfully. -Lee Myung-bak

The truth is, I can't help the way people perceive anything, from the role of financial industry in the economic crisis, to the place of women's fiction in the canon of modern literature, to the rank of mint chocolate chip ice cream as a favorite Baskin-Robbins flavor. -Erin Duffy

Fortunately, when Korea was struck by the 1997/8 financial crisis, that was a good opportunity for us to engage in fundamental reforms and strengthen our financial structure. As a result, our financial regulatory structure and regime have been very much strengthened. -Lee Myung-bak

Fiscal crises often turn into financial crises, dealing a blow to the real economy. -Lee Myung-bak

Adoptive parents are taking on enormous responsibility, both emotionally and financially. Quite frankly, they need as much disclosure as possible about the child's background and health to assure the best fit and be prepared. -Pat Robertson

Relationships and the stress of the world going down, it puts a lot of stress on people, you know financially. -Rick Springfield

Derivatives in and of themselves are not evil. There's nothing evil about how they're traded, how they're accounted for, and how they're financed, like any other financial instrument, if done properly. -James Chanos

It's almost sickening now that the regulators 'on the beat' while the biggest credit collapse in modern financial history unfolded are now patting themselves on the back for their 'brave' stance on short-selling! -James Chanos

I'll always understand the Schadenfreude aspect to short-selling. I get that no one will always like it. I'm also convinced to the deepest part of my bones that short-selling plays the role of real-time financial watchdog. It's one of the few checks and balances in the market. -James Chanos

We urge the Department of Justice to carefully investigate and aggressively prosecute all senior bank officials who participated in manipulating the London interbank offered rate throughout the financial crisis. -Peter Welch

There are still deep-seated structural problems that threaten the economic balance in the world: Between the United States and China, for example, but also within Europe. We have taken a few steps toward taming the financial markets, but we haven't come nearly far enough to rule out a repetition of the crisis. -Peer Steinbruck

Greece will not manage to get back on its feet without restructuring its debt. There is no way around it. The country's creditors will have to reduce a portion of its debts by extending maturity dates, lowering interest rates or giving them what's called a 'haircut' in financial jargon. -Peer Steinbruck

The U.S. will lose its status as the superpower of the world financial system. The world will become multi-polar. -Peer Steinbruck

The biggest financial pitfall in life is divorce. And the biggest reason for divorce is marriage. -Gene Simmons

I have done everything I can to move Britain out of the financial danger zone. -George Osborne

I want Britain to be the home of successful competitive and stable financial services. -George Osborne

I want Britain to be a global financial centre but I want it to be properly regulated. -George Osborne

The fans know what's happened to me over the past couple of years. I lost my family. I pretty much got devastated financially and the fans know that I've had some hard times – and that's the nature of loyal fans. They want to see the people that they love and believe in get back on their feet. -Hulk Hogan

I simply want you to give to yourself as much as you give of yourself. By taking care of yourself financially, you will truly be able to take care of those you love. -Suze Orman

The only way you will ever permanently take control of your financial life is to dig deep and fix the root problem. -Suze Orman

If you're financially responsible, your children have a much better chance to grow up financially responsible. -Suze Orman

I have always advocated doing everything possible to pay off credit card balances; it's good financial management and the ticket to a strong FICO credit score. -Suze Orman

If you pay off your mortgage before retirement, you take a huge financial load off your shoulders. You also become eligible to take out a reverse mortgage once you turn 62. -Suze Orman

The foundation of a financial fresh start actually has nothing to do with money or specific financial dos and don'ts. -Suze Orman

Put your financial life on autopilot as a form of 'forced' saving. -Suze Orman

So many financial dreams are thwarted by the failure to act upon good intentions. -Suze Orman

Thoughtful financial planning can easily take a backseat to daily life. -Suze Orman

No one's ever achieved financial fitness with a January resolution that's abandoned by February. -Suze Orman

Here's my gift-giving rule: Respect your current financial situation. -Suze Orman

If you're not staying on top of your money, you are putting your financial well-being at risk. -Suze Orman

Like your home's closets, your financial clutter needs an overhaul every now and again, and the payoff will go far beyond the psychic satisfaction of neatening up. -Suze Orman

Even if you were to fall into extreme financial hardship and file for bankruptcy, you need to understand that your student loan debt will not be discharged in bankruptcy. It is the Velcro of all debts. -Suze Orman

We have got to change our ethics and our financial system and our whole way of understanding the world. It has to be a world in which people live rather than die; a sustainable world. It could be great. -Vivienne Westwood

As far as your personal goals are and what you actually want to do with your life, it should never have to do with the government. You should never depend on the government for your retirement, your financial security, for anything. If you do, you're screwed. -Drew Carey

A college degree is the key to realizing the American dream, well worth the financial sacrifice because it is supposed to open the door to a world of opportunity. -Dan Rather

You can build a statistical model and that's all well and good, but if you're dealing with a new type of financial instrument, for example, or a new type of situation – then the choices you're making are pretty arbitrary in a lot of respects. -Nate Silver

I have a perverse attraction to risk. Not physical risk but emotional, financial risk – anything than can't kill you immediately. -Scott Adams

Our youth deserve the opportunity to complete their high school and college education, free of early parenthood. Their future children deserve the opportunity to grow up in financially and emotionally stable homes. Our communities benefit from healthy, productive, well-prepared young people. -Jane Fonda

The one thing that makes me feel super lucky about my financial success is that I have a housekeeper. -Gwen Stefani

I want to struggle and make films. It's not a financial thing, it's more of a who-I-am thing. -Scott Caan

The best discussion of trouble in boardroom and business office is found in newspapers' own financial pages and speeches by journalists in management jobs. -Russell Baker

While no amount of financial wealth can guarantee an experience of prosperity, it is possible to experience prosperity at almost any level of income, except when we are unable to meet our basic physical needs. -Shakti Gawain

The prevailing ideology of the modern west – which is political economy – is in the doghouse. Having failed to notice atmospheric pollution, the economists then frightened themselves with the sort of financial crisis they said they had abolished. -James Buchan

In rising financial markets, the world is forever new. The bull or optimist has no eyes for past or present, but only for the future, where streams of revenue play in his imagination. -James Buchan

In falling markets, there is nothing that has not happened before. The bear or pessimist sees only the past, which imprisons the wretched financial soul in eternal circles of boom and bust and boom again. -James Buchan

Bulls don't read. Bears read financial history. As markets fall to bits, the bears dust off the Dutch tulip mania of 1637, the Banque Royale of 1719-20, the railway speculation of the 1840s, the great crash of 1929. -James Buchan

Cause and effect, the riddle of all history, is a particular devil in financial history; and never more so than today, where entire classes of security are collapsing not on public exchanges and stock-tickers but because there are no markets to establish prices this side of nothing. -James Buchan

Computer hacking really results in financial losses and hassles. The objectives of terrorist groups are more serious. That is not to say that cyber groups can't access a telephone switch in Manhattan on a day like 9/11, shut it down, and therefore cause more casualties. -Kevin Mitnick

The Olympic Games are highly commercialised. They purport to follow the traditions of an ancient athletics competition, but today it is the commercial aspect that is most apparent. I have seen how, through sport, cities and corporations compete against each other for financial gain. -Ai Weiwei

Men are likely to be quite generous, especially financially. -Warren Farrell

The first reason for the preponderant influence of those Evangelicals who define themselves as advocates of Religious Right theological and political ideologies is that they have both the financial means and technological know-how to make widespread use of modern electronic forms of communication. -Tony Campolo

I've stopped apologizing to myself for having this great period of success and financial acceptance. -Robert Plant

So actually war is politically profitable, financially profitable, morally depraved. -Dennis Kucinich

Now the main areas of higher education that still enjoy considerable financial support from government are subjects like engineering and science and the research ringfence which is the basic minimum to protect Britain's scientific competitiveness. -Vince Cable

We do recognise that there are areas where the current financial services market, the banking market, just isn't working for chunks of the British economy. -Vince Cable

I think what is happening is I think first of all there is confidence in the U.K. economy. We're in a German rather than a Greek position in international financial markets, which is very positive and keeps our debt service costs down, and we're also beginning to see real evidence of rebalancing. -Vince Cable

There was, of course, a global financial crisis. But our Labour predecessors left Britain exceptionally vulnerable and damaged: more personal debt than any other major economy; a dangerously inflated property bubble; and a bloated banking sector behaving as masters, not the servants of the people. -Vince Cable

There are endless new variations on how to hurt a woman physically, emotionally, financially, and socially. -Gloria Allred

Some argue that now isn't the time to push the green agenda – that all efforts should be on preventing a serious recession. That is a false choice. It fails to recognise that climate change and our carbon reliance is part of problem – high fuel prices and food shortages due to poor crop yields compound today's financial difficulties. -Lucy Powell

Globalisation means that for a high-wage, developed economy like Britain's to compete we need to focus our efforts on the highly skilled, added-value sectors such as advanced manufacturing, creative industries, engineering and even financial services. -Lucy Powell

There has been a banking crisis, a financial crisis, an economic crisis, a social crisis, a geostrategic crisis and an environmental crisis. That's considerable in a country that's used to being protected. -Jean-Francois Cope

Study after study has demonstrated that people are better off financially, healthier, happier if they are married, and indeed, I repeat, if they are formally married as opposed to simply living together. -Malcolm Turnbull

2009 was a tough year, but Australia rose to the challenge of the global financial crisis. It shows what can be done when we all join together and work together, governments of all persuasions state, territory and local; businesses large and small; unions and local communities right across the nation. -Kevin Rudd

What we have seen in financial markets should bring home to us all that the central organising principle of this 21st century is interdependence. For the century just past, interdependence may have been one option among many. For the century that is to come, there is no longer an alternative. -Kevin Rudd

The stability of global financial markets is a public good. If governments fail to protect this public good, then those who suffer are the working people of the world whose jobs, whose homes, and whose standard of living depends on it. -Kevin Rudd

Potential home buyers have a two-step decision process. First, they determine whether they can afford to make a purchase – does their income safely cover their mortgage payment? Then they determine whether owning is a better financial choice than renting – are the costs of owning a home lower than the cost of renting it? -Mark Zandi

The Obama administration deserves credit for quickly ending the housing free fall. In particular, Obama empowered the Federal Housing Administration to ensure that households could find mortgages at low interest rates even during the worst phase of the financial panic. -Mark Zandi

Too-easy credit and millions of bad loans made during the U.S. housing bubble paved the way for the financial calamity and Great Recession that followed. Today, by contrast, credit is too tight. Mortgage loans are particularly hard to get, creating a problem for the housing market and the broader economy. -Mark Zandi

The Tea Party was born out of the disgust many Americans felt early in the financial crisis upon learning that the federal government was even contemplating reducing the principal on some troubled mortgages. -Mark Zandi

Defaulting on the nation's debt would be cataclysmic. The U.S. Treasury's Aaa rating is the one constant in the world's financial system. When times are bad anywhere on the planet, global investors flock to Treasury bonds because they know they will get their money back. -Mark Zandi

The principal linkages between Japan and the U.S. global economies are trade, financial markets, and commodity markets. -Mark Zandi

Washington's answer to a self-inflicted financial crisis reminded Americans why they so deeply distrust the political class. The 'fiscal cliff' process was secretive and sloppy, and the nation's so-called leadership lacked the political courage to address our root problems: joblessness and debt. -Ron Fournier

So how does the machine work that you have a financial crisis? How does deleveraging work – what is the nature of that machine? And what is human nature, and how do you raise a community of people to run a business? -Ray Dalio

In China anything less than 6% growth is a recession meaning that it also causes financial problems and it's disruptive and it's a problem. -Ray Dalio

In some respects, inside information is a form of financial steroid. It is unfair: it is offensive; it is unlawful; and it puts a black mark on the entire enterprise. -Preet Bharara

Today the financial market is no good, but the money is there. -Jack Ma

Infertility is this huge emotional roller coaster. If you want in your heart more than anything to have a baby, it's the hardest thing you will ever go through physically, emotionally, and financially. -Cindy Margolis

We have so many kids in America to be adopted, but it's expensive. All these families that want children aren't able to because of the financial aspect, and that, to me, is just the most disgusting thing ever. -Cindy Margolis

The United States has the most sophisticated financial markets in the world, which does not leave much room to maneuver. But it also offers investors the greatest access to information and the ability to execute trades quickly and efficiently. So it is a mixed bag of opportunity. -Andrew Lo

Many of us like to think of financial economics as a science, but complex events like the financial crisis suggest that this conceit may be more wishful thinking than reality. -Andrew Lo

The financial implode is bound to be reflected in the movies that are being made, there's no question. -Clive Owen

Probably the reason it's a little hard to break away from the album format completely is, if you're getting a band together in the studio, it makes financial sense to do more than one song at a time. And it makes more sense, if you're going to all the effort of performing and doing whatever else, if there's a kind of bundle. -David Byrne

Well, Marx is having a comeback. I hear him mentioned a lot in terms of the global financial situation and the general sense of injustice out there. A lot of economic experts in America refer to him without actually using the M word, but he's around. -David Byrne

I hope that my investment into Atomico will become my best financial investment to date. -Niklas Zennstrom

My friends started having children after college, while I was pursuing this crazy acting career and living hand to mouth. Plus, all my boyfriends were artists struggling to make a living. Having kids didn't make any sense – why would I take on more of a financial burden when I couldn't even afford a dog? -Edie Falco

Studies show that children of divorced parents can have outcomes as positive as those coming from intact homes, provided the father remains financially supportive and active in his children's lives. -Larry Elder

The way I look at it, everything is a trade. You acquire some money, so then you've got no financial burdens, but everyone wants your money and so who can you trust? Or you've got no money and you can trust anyone, but then you've got the worry to pay bills. Which is worse? -Matt LeBlanc

Work to me has become kind of a hobby. I was a part of something that gave me financial independence and the rent is paid. Now it's just about projects that turn me on. -Matt LeBlanc

I came from a family where I felt great pressure to be financially successful, and I felt that staying in Chicago and doing theater, I was, in all likelihood, not going to find financial success. -David Schwimmer

Let us not forget, the financial crisis had its roots in the decision by Congress to embark on a course of social justice to get everyone that wanted a home into one, regardless of whether or not they could afford it. -Ed Royce

Imagine if the pension funds and endowments that own much of the equity in our financial services companies demanded that those companies revisit the way mortgages were marketed to those without adequate skills to understand the products they were being sold. Management would have to change the way things were done. -Eliot Spitzer

We are all used to paying a sales tax when we buy things – almost 9 percent here in New York City. The application of this concept to the financial sector could solve our need for revenue, bring some sanity back into the financial sector, and give us a way to raise the revenue we need to run the government in a fiscally responsible way. -Eliot Spitzer

Don't reward bad behavior. It is one of the first rules of parenting. During the financial cataclysm of 2008, we said it differently. When we bailed out banks that had created their own misfortune, we called it a 'moral hazard,' because the bailout absolved the bank's bad acts and created an incentive for it to make the same bad loans again. -Eliot Spitzer

Once again, the puppets on Capitol Hill are about to slam the Muppets on Main Street. The country still hasn't recovered from the Wall Street-induced financial cataclysm of 2008, yet Congress is preparing to enact the Orwellian 'JOBS Act' – a bill that should in fact be called the 'Return Fraud to Wall Street in One Easy Step Act.' -Eliot Spitzer

Growing up, my father was a financial analyst for an oil company. He was just a regular dad. And when I would say, 'Hey, come see my play,' he'd say, 'Sure.' He'd see one, 'Oh, good play' – you know, very typical dad reaction. -Eric McCormack

I was brought up in an environment where my parents expressed their financial concerns in front of their children. -Natalie Imbruglia

Once you succeed in tennis, financially you become quite well off. -Stefan Edberg

I represent Staten Island and Brooklyn, and not just that the financial services industry is important to the U.S., but is disproportionately important to New York City. -Vito Fossella

During the financial crisis and bailouts of 2008, it probably occurred to very few average people that we were entering a period of hardship for billionaires. -Thomas Frank

Our current way of regulating the financial system is dysfunctional. Oversight is dispersed among numerous confusing bodies that at times have seemed to be racing each other to the bottom. Setting up One Big Regulator would end that problem. -Thomas Frank

Just as the financial crisis has created toxic assets and 'zombie' financial institutions, so has it transformed conservatism into a movement of the living dead. -Thomas Frank

There is much to dislike about President Obama's approach to the financial crisis. But opposition, it seems, will have to come from somewhere other than conservatism. The party out of power is also a party out of touch. -Thomas Frank

Anyone can wear any color. The question is about finding the right shade. There is a momentary trend to dark colors because when the financials are not that great, people go for black, navy and grey. -Ozwald Boateng

It's nice to be financially secure. Apart from that, I really don't care too much about money. -Magnus Carlsen

My private financial situation is such that I don't need to worry about my investments. I don't have much to invest. -Wolfgang Schauble

The United States lived on borrowed money for too long, inflating its financial sector unnecessarily and neglecting its small and mid-sized industrial companies. -Wolfgang Schauble

A perfect storm is in the making: financial uncertainty, economic downturn, government cuts, rising unemployment and a future that looks less clear the more we try to fathom it. -Jonathan Sacks

Governments must commit to sound economic and financial policies. This is how we ensure reform in the euro area – and our independence. -Mario Draghi

TV presenting isn't the hardest job in the world, and I've done all right financially out of it. -Gail Porter

My dad was rubbish at all other aspects of his financial life, but he's pretty good at paying the rent. -Robert Carlyle

If you create incredible value and information for others that can change their lives – and you always stay focused on that service – the financial success will follow. -Brendon Burchard

I never had any financial support or sponsors, and so I always had to, at every level, prove myself the hard way. I was five years in Japan before I got my debut at Le Mans. And I think this is a humble way to get through as a racing driver. -Tom Kristensen

Writing is as big a part of my career as acting is, financially and time wise. So, yeah, I love it. That's all I wanted to do since I was young was be a writer. So that and acting are the two most important aspects of my career. -Jonah Hill

I make almost all the decisions on set and have to deal with all the financial aspects. -Michel Hazanavicius

I was friends with all different people and all different groups. And that led me to being friends with a few people who didn't even go to my school. Now I have the most amazing collection of friends of all ethnic backgrounds and upbringing and financial backgrounds. -James Maslow

I invested. I wanted to cushion the future. I'm a financial success! -Joanna Kerns

There is much more good gained from having a fully functioning financial market than there ever is not having that. -John Key

I was so lucky to have parents who supported me, 100%, with whatever I was doing, both financially and emotionally. Having that they made my life so much easier. Instead of becoming a bartender and trying to survive while trying to pursue your dreams, I didn't have to worry about that aspect. I could just pursue my dreams. -Cam Gigandet

There are a lot of millionairess situations. I'm one of them. I've always dated down financially. And now I'm changing my tune on that one. Things are going to change for me. -Patti Stanger

Successful men don't date up. They are intimidated by wealthy women unless they are blue bloods. Successful men want to always take care of their women, and that means financially. -Patti Stanger

My choices in projects have all been character or role-based, and on a financial level, it's obvious: as an actor on a TV series, I get a wonderful paycheck, and a consistent paycheck, which doesn't always happen when you're doing theater or movies. -Jim Parsons

To be in a position, at my age, where I am financially independent, I can help develop things, I can promote stuff that I believe in, I can say no a lot and spend time writing – that is a gift. -Ellen Page

Refuse to accept the belief that your professional relevance, career success or financial security turns on the next update on the latest technology. Sometimes it's good to put the paddle down and just let the canoe glide. -Simon Mainwaring

Wish I could, through my own financial prestidigitation, transform a dollar bill into two, or two million. It is an awesome and mysterious skill. -Michael Ian Black

If I wanted to work financially, I would have made a series of different choices. I do get offered lots of movies which you could make a lot of money out of. And I always say, 'Why would I do that, when someone else could do it much better than me? Why would I want to do an action picture? Why?' -Stephen Daldry

I have never been motivated by money in my life. You can't make choices based on what the financial return might be. -Stephen Daldry

At nineteen I was pretty sure I was going to be a professional soccer player. At that time I played for one of the Norwegian premier leagues. But I tore ligaments in both knees, so I started studying business administration and economics and became a financial analyst, and I worked at a brokerage firm as a stockbroker. -Jo Nesbo

During the financial crisis, I worked with hundreds of executives who struggled as a result of their thoughts about job security. When their beliefs changed, so did their emotional experience – and they were then able to focus on the task at hand more effectively. -Andrew J. Bernstein

When I was younger I didn't have much financially, like we couldn't afford a lot of stuff and I remember seeing little girls' rooms on TV and they'd all be pink. I didn't have my own room, I shared with my brother, so I would have this daydream and imagine that one day I could have my own room and it would all be pink, like Cinderella's. -Nicki Minaj

I ran for Congress not because I was having a mid-life crisis. I left the private sector because I saw a looming financial crisis that was coming to this country. It's unsustainable. -Steve Daines

For too long, Americans have fallen victim to financial abuses at the hands of predatory lenders that operate in the shadows. -Kay Hagan

North Carolina is home to some of the largest financial institutions in the country, and a vibrant network of community banks. We're a banking state, and we're proud of that distinction. But we also understand that responsible financial regulation protects consumers and businesses. -Kay Hagan

For 10 years, I'd been working as a freelance writer and editor, making money but not a living. It was a good arrangement family-wise, allowing me to stay home with our daughter, but not so great financially or, sometimes, ego-wise. -Will Allison

I'm not a financial expert. The Robin Hood tax seems to me a very simple and beautiful idea. I don't see the problem. -Bill Nighy

The United States tax system today is very prejudiced towards financialization, leverage, and lack of investment. -Frederick W. Smith

Hedge funds, private equity and venture capital funds have played an important role in providing liquidity to our financial system and improving the efficiency of capital markets. But as their role has grown, so have the risks they pose. -Jack Reed

The financial crisis is a stark reminder that transparency and disclosure are essential in today's marketplace. -Jack Reed

I don't know if Jesus said it in the Bible, but someone said that 'the love of money is the root of all evil,' and I do think there's a correlation between the ambition that a lot of people have, in terms of financial remuneration, and the loss of core values. -Norbert Leo Butz

I think there are specific times where film noir is a natural concomitant of the mood. When there's insecurity, collapse of financial systems – that's where film noir always hits fertile ground. -Werner Herzog

Establishing a 0.03 percent Wall Street speculation fee, similar to what we had from 1914-1966, would dampen the dangerous level of speculation and gambling on Wall Street, encourage the financial sector to invest in the productive economy and reduce the deficit by more than $350 billion over 10 years. -Bernie Sanders

If a financial institution is too big to fail, it is too big to exist. -Bernie Sanders

After all, Wall Street is clearly the most powerful lobbying force on Capitol Hill. From 1998 through 2008, the financial sector spent over $5 billion in lobbying and campaign contributions to deregulate Wall Street. -Bernie Sanders

The Federal Reserve has a responsibility to ensure the safety and soundness of financial institutions and to contain systemic risks in financial markets. -Bernie Sanders

Through all aspects of society be it art, design, the financial markets, government, technology or communications we are witnessing unprecedented global transformation – the result of which is impossible to predict. -Malcolm Mclaren

I have no interest in managing my financial affairs. -Ken Livingstone

Nine out of ten adult Americans have a checking account. It's the most widely used financial services product in the United States. -Carolyn Maloney

Countries are not like financial markets. Social change cannot be executed as swiftly as credit-default swaps. You cannot sell short on social commitments and practical responsibilities. -George Papandreou

Increased revenues, meaning higher taxes, will be a central element of any successful long-term budget plan, and President Obama is right to insist that the wealthy – the slice of America that has come through the recession in by far the best financial health – should provide those funds. -Steven Rattner

If you invent something, you're doing a creative act. It's like writing a novel or composing music. You put your heart and soul into it, and money. It's years of your life, it's your house remortgaged, huge emotional investment and financial investment. -James Dyson

God understands more about the financial markets than many who write about them. -Jean-Claude Juncker

The Luxembourg financial centre is based on several pillars, we are characterised by the breadth of our product range, we are an active participant in the international credit business. -Jean-Claude Juncker

Taking away the risk from the financial sector and taking it on to the public shoulders is not the right approach. -Jeroen Dijsselbloem

The dynamic of globalisation in financial and economic terms, but also in geopolitical terms, confronts Europeans with a stark choice: live together, share a common destiny and count in the world; or face the prospect of disunity and decline. -Jose Manuel Barroso

As an entrepreneur, I knew that if my company failed, I could always try again. So I often felt that the only real risk of true financial ruin came from the possibility of a serious illness that either exceeded my insurance plans lifetime limits, or was not covered due to rescission. -Eric Ries

I'm the CEO of A$AP Worldwide. But as you can see, when I'm with them, everybody's equal. We don't really base our love off of finances or who's superior by financial status. We're all equal. When I'm with them, I'm letting them shine 'cause it's just like how it used to be. They still there. I'm just chilling out front. -ASAP Rocky

It was always a challenge for me to prove that a Russian financial investor can be as successful in the West as back at home in Russia. -Alisher Usmanov

Of course most Americans don't know how A.I.G. brought the world's financial system to near-ruin or what credit-default swaps are. They may not even know what A.I.G. stands for. But Americans do make the connection between their fears about their own jobs and their broad understanding of the A.I.G. debacle. -Frank Rich

Media is very different from financial services. People are very fickle and very vocal. They believe that things should be one way and not the other. It's still very rewarding to build products for huge audiences. It feels like you're making an impact. -Max Levchin

If financial assets no longer work for you at a rate far and above the rate of true wealth creation, then you must work longer for your money. -Bill Gross

The reality is that asking the public to fund political campaigns accomplishes nothing. Candidates continue to seek interest-group support through other channels, both financial and in-kind, and corruption problems abound. -Bradley A. Smith

I think something that forces financial institutions to write down underwater mortgages, I think, would be a sensible thing to do. -Christina Romer

When you print money, the money does not flow evenly into the economic system. It stays essentially in the financial service industry and among people that have access to these funds, mostly well-to-do people. It does not go to the worker. -Marc Faber

Millions of Americans were duped by the federal government and the Federal Reserve into buying homes they could not afford and failed to count the cost. When the financial crisis of 2008 hit, they could not keep up the monthly mortgage payments and defaulted. -Mark Skousen

For those of us in the financial world, Black Friday has a strong negative connotation, referring to a stock market catastrophe. -Mark Skousen

Market capitalism survived and prospered after the boom-bust industrial revolution of the 19th century, and the Great Depression and world wars of the 20th century. It will recover from the financial panic of 2008-09 and Obamanomics. -Mark Skousen

As the financial experts all over the world use machines to unwind Gordian knots of financial arrangements so complex that only machines can make – 'derive' – and trade them, we have to wonder: Are we living in a bad sci-fi movie? Is the Matrix made of credit default swaps? -Richard Dooling

My perception of life is not to ask Francois Hollande, who isn't the father of my children, to support me financially. -Valerie Trierweiler

My feeling is that maintaining financial independence is also a healthy way to keep my feet on the ground. -Valerie Trierweiler

When I was a child, there was very little money, so I've always been concerned for my financial security, which has meant that finding myself as a writer was a bad move. The practical difference the money has made is that I can support myself by fiction. That is what I have been trying to do throughout my life. -Hilary Mantel

I believe that through knowledge and discipline, financial peace is possible for all of us. -Dave Ramsey

You don't want to have so much money going toward your mortgage every month that you can't enjoy life or take care of your other financial responsibilities. -Dave Ramsey

I've had nonstop financial problems my whole adult life. It's always been a constant balance, year to year: 'Where's the time? Where's the money?' -Lorrie Moore

Let us not be defeated by the tyranny of the world financial markets that threaten peace and democracy everywhere. -Stephane Hessel

I don't need anyone to look after me financially and, while it's hard to trust that a man loves you for the right reasons, you have to take a leap of faith. -Tamara Ecclestone

I've got eighteen-year-old twins that need to go to college, so there's still a financial issue, but I could retire tomorrow and just count ducks by the side of the lake, and that would be just fine by me. I'm not a high-energy guy. -Jonathan Banks

I'd like to be the next Oprah financially, but I'm not a TV actor. I'm not someone with an entertainment background, I'm a cop. And I'm not afraid to go anywhere and get down and dirty. -Steve Wilkos

The Affordable Care Act's requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax. -John Roberts

Discovering various economists, economic works, reading financial periodicals and keeping up on current events in geopolitics and economics around the world opened my eyes to many facets of how the extended order works. -Kurt Bills

I think as a business it would be amazing if the euro was to collapse, but financially and economically I think that would be a bit of a tsunami for everybody to cope with. -Lloyd Dorfman

Veterans are driven by the same frustrations that the public has with what is happening in Washington… the fiscal irresponsibility and the financial crisis that our country is facing. -Pete Hegseth

Dealing with those personalities and the people who run this music thing has been most challenging. It's hard to really communicate things to people who run a business yet forget the nature of the business. They only look at the bottom line and the financial return, you know, they forget what it is they're packaging. It's art. -Q-Tip

If the childhood obesity epidemic remains unchecked, it will condemn many of our kids to shorter lives, as well as the emotional and financial burdens of poor health. -Richard Carmona

Unprecedented financial pressures, and an ever-increasingly aggressive public culture, along with social, moral and spiritual fragmentation, are leading to lives being overwhelmed by stress, intolerable interior isolation and even quiet despair. -Sean Brady

The financial crisis of 2008 was not caused by investment banks betting against the housing market in 2007. It was caused by the fact that too few investors – including all of the big investment banks – bet too heavily on the housing market in the years before 2007. -James Surowiecki

Art collecting has traditionally been the domain of wealthy individuals in search of rewards beyond the purely financial. -James Surowiecki

What is good for you creatively is usually bad commercially. You thrive financially by sticking to a series and not fiddling about too much. You do yourself harm by moving away from the series and the genre. By trying things not based in that particular mode of writing, you will just lose readers. -John Connolly

For women especially, it's important to be financially independent. -Karrine Steffans

Your employer is the last person you should want to provide for your healthcare, from a privacy, financial, and value standpoint. Employees with families should get the family, meaning spouses and children, off the company plan. In most cases, that will save them money. -Paul Zane Pilzer

Innovation requires resources to invest, and you can see many companies pulling back and going into an intense protective mode in a major extended period of financial distress. -Peter Senge

I'd probably still be a financial journalist now if it weren't for writing novels. Mmm. Fun! I'm much happier writing novels! -Sophie Kinsella

Once 'Walk Two Moons' received the Newbery Medal, I decided to write full-time. Partly because there seemed to be an audience out there who wanted to read what I wanted to write, and partly because I could now support myself financially through writing. -Sharon Creech

The only way to permanently change the temperature in the room is to reset the thermostat. In the same way, the only way to change your level of financial success 'permanently' is to reset your financial thermostat. But it is your choice whether you choose to change. -T. Harv Eker

While one should never underestimate the ability of risk-besotted financiers to wreak havoc, the real threat to capitalism isn't unfettered financial cunning. It is, instead, the unwillingness of executives to confront the changing expectations of their stakeholders. -Gary Hamel

Work is an activity that is financially-driven or one that you'd like to do less of. -Tim Ferriss

Parenting classes should be mandatory, whether you are adopting or not, and would include an evaluation of your current physical, mental and financial state as well as how ready you are to take on the rigors of parenthood. Our children are our most precious natural resource, and there is absolutely no other way to parent but to put them first. -Dale Archer

Imagine the world of mobile based on Nokia and Motorola if Apple had not been restarted by a missionary entrepreneur named Steve Jobs who cared more for his vision than being tactical and financial. -Vinod Khosla

This country, of course, needs fundamental reform of our financial regulatory system, as I, and many other financial institution executives, have publicly advocated for a considerable period. -Stephen A. Schwarzman

It's really interesting that we've had this great Tea Party movement that is all about restoring free market capitalist values, but what they completely fail to understand is that what we've got now is a situation where there is a small class of gigantic financial companies that have put themselves above capitalism. -Matt Taibbi

The moral angle to the foreclosure crisis – and, of course, in capitalism we're not supposed to be concerned with the moral stuff, but let's mention it anyway – shows a culture that is slowly giving in to a futuristic nightmare ideology of computerized greed and unchecked financial violence. -Matt Taibbi

Ratings agencies are the glue that ostensibly holds the entire financial industry together. -Matt Taibbi

It's not a stretch to say the whole financial industry revolves around the compass point of the absolutely safe AAA rating. But the financial crisis happened because AAA ratings stopped being something that had to be earned and turned into something that could be paid for. -Matt Taibbi

The only reason investors haven't run screaming from an obviously corrupt financial marketplace is because the government has gone to such extraordinary lengths to sell the narrative that the problems of 2008 have been fixed. -Matt Taibbi

There are some who think that the government is limited in how many corruption cases it can bring against Wall Street, because juries can't understand the complexity of the financial schemes involved. But in 'U.S.A. v. Carollo,' that turned out not to be true. -Matt Taibbi

Over the years, many in the public have become numb to news of financial corruption, partly because too many of these stories involve banker-on-banker crime. -Matt Taibbi

You win the modern financial-regulation game by filing the most motions, attending the most hearings, giving the most money to the most politicians and, above all, by keeping at it, day after day, year after fiscal year, until stealing is legal again. -Matt Taibbi

The threat posed by Bank of America isn't just financial – it's a full-blown assault on the American dream. Where's the incentive to play fair and do well, when what we see rewarded at the highest levels of society is failure, stupidity, incompetence and meanness? If this is what winning in our system looks like, who doesn't want to be a loser? -Matt Taibbi

'Nobody goes to jail.' This is the mantra of the financial-crisis era, one that saw virtually every major bank and financial company on Wall Street embroiled in obscene criminal scandals that impoverished millions and collectively destroyed hundreds of billions, in fact, trillions of dollars of the world's wealth – and nobody went to jail. -Matt Taibbi

I no longer care about the financial system. I gave them my roadmap. OK? Thanks, bye. I've no idea what's going on. I'm disconnected. I'm totally disengaged. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

People employed in financial institutions are rarely interesting and even more rarely likable. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

We have this culture of financialization. People think they need to make money with their savings rather with their own business. So you end up with dentists who are more traders than dentists. A dentist should drill teeth and use whatever he does in the stock market for entertainment. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

What we need to do is break the financial community's grip on society. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Businesses can lead with their values and make money, too. You don't have to simply be purely profit-driven. You can integrate social and environmental concerns into a business, be a caring business, be a generous business and still do very well financially. -Jerry Greenfield

Businesses typically look at issues like price, quality, time of delivery. They don't often think about social and environmental impact because they're focused on their financial bottom line. -Jerry Greenfield

Macau is limited in size and land is expensive, so gaming and leisure development must be more efficient. We follow a very conservative financial strategy. -Stanley Ho

'Flying Down to Rio' established RKO as a leader in musical film production throughout the 1930s. The film helped to rescue the studio from its financial straits and it gave a real boost to my movie career. -Ginger Rogers

Over time, the welfare state has become dysfunctional in a surprising way. But in a way it became a victim of its own success: It became so successful at prolonging life, that it becomes financially unsustainable, unless you make major changes to things like retirement ages. -Niall Ferguson

I think the rise of quantitative econometrics and a highly mathematical approach to risk management was the obverse of a decline in interest in financial history. -Niall Ferguson

Risk models are a substitute for historical knowledge, because they tend to work with just three years' worth of data. But three years is not a long time in financial history. -Niall Ferguson

As a financial historian, I was quite isolated in Oxford – British historians are supposed to write about kings – so the quality of intellectual life in my field is much higher at Harvard. The students work harder there. -Niall Ferguson

It's difficult for me to trust a woman. Men are attracted to beautiful women. Women are attracted to men who offer security – financial security. And if you have money and you're famous, women find that sexy. -Curtis Jackson

Since 2001, people have been scared. There's been some really scary stuff that's been happening – 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, Katrina, anthrax letters, D.C. sniper, global warming, global financial meltdown, bird flu, swine flu, SARS. I think people really feel like the system's breaking down. -Max Brooks

In America, what you've accomplished financially is a measurement, whether you like it or not. -Eli Broad

American business would be run better today if there was more alignment between CEOs' interest and the company. For example, would the financial crisis of 2008 have occurred if the CEO of Lehman and Morgan Stanley and Goldman and Citibank had to take a very small percentage of every mortgage-backed security… or every loan they made? -Aubrey McClendon

Made with Pencils is grounded in the creativity of a few, propelled by the financial support of many, and most importantly, it's empowering generations to come. A simple idea, a heartfelt desire, and a world of possibility. A pencil, a promise, and a dream. -Adam Braun

Unless you have financial resources of your own, you can't be free. -Georgette Mosbacher

I'm not such an artist type that I can't handle the real world. I read the financial pages, because most people don't talk about art. -Caio Fonseca

The families in positions of great financial power obsessively interbreed with each other. But I'm not talking about one Earth race, Jewish or non-Jewish. I'm talking about a genetic network that operates through all races, this bloodline being a fusion of human and reptilian genes. -David Icke

I was very, very financially secure my whole life. I have been very lucky to say that. -Brian Wilson

When your focus is social change and not financial change, why wouldn't you want to share that openly? Innovation only succeeds when it's shared. -Cameron Sinclair

I'm happy to tell you that my debt is retired. That happened because I got a good financial adviser. -Lisa Caputo

Go out and interview people to find a partner whom you can trust. Find somebody who subscribes to the same view that you do. I'm happy to tell you that I practice what I preach. I would have never thought I'd end up in financial services. -Lisa Caputo

Students today need experience to get a job, and they need a job to get experience. The Chegg Champion program provides students with a real-world working experience that actually offers financial rewards. -Osman Rashid

People should have an escape valve for their money, their assets. If you have substantial financial assets, the government is going to confiscate the purchasing power of those assets and spend it. -Peter Schiff

Non-bank financial institutions provide credit that is essential to U.S. businesses and consumers. -Henry Paulson

There is a very real danger that financial regulation will become a wolf in sheep's clothing. -Henry Paulson

It is the policy of the federal government to use all resources at its disposal to make our financial system stronger. -Henry Paulson

Our overriding goal in restructuring our financial architecture should be that taxpayers never again have to save a failing financial institution. -Henry Paulson

One of the most constant aspects of American life is change – and nowhere is it more evident than in our financial markets. -Henry Paulson

If the financial system collapses, it's really, really hard to put it back together again. -Henry Paulson

An open, competitive, and liberalized financial market can effectively allocate scarce resources in a manner that promotes stability and prosperity far better than governmental intervention. -Henry Paulson

From the beginning of time, we've had financial crises. People always blame the banks and for good reason. When you look for the root causes, they're almost always failed government policies. -Henry Paulson

For market discipline to constrain risk effectively, financial institutions must be allowed to fail. Under optimal financial regulatory and financial system infrastructures, such a failure would not threaten the overall system. -Henry Paulson

When you have an attorney giving you advice, it would be nice to know what their financial relationship is to the advice. -Lowell Bergman

As music became more profitable in the 1990s, it seemed like it attracted a lot of people who were just interested in the financial aspect of it, which is depressing. -Moby

The financial world is at the cutting edge of high technology. -Robert Harris

One cannot see any world leader who has got a grip on the financial markets these days. They're too big, too fast. I think that's quite scary. -Robert Harris

We live in an age of great jitteriness in the financial markets. And there's no doubt at all, I think, that the volume of computer-traded stocks has helped contribute to that. -Robert Harris

The financial markets tend to be just a backdrop for a novel, for a heist or something that isn't necessarily integral to it. On the whole, I don't think the financial world has been well served by novels. -Robert Harris

Being in the public eye is part of what I do, and taking on a multitude of different projects – television, radio, fashion, writing or deep-sea diving – is a blessing. It is also how I pay my bills and fund my own skating, as I don't have a sponsor or financial help from my federation. -Johnny Weir

The assumption that Washington could and would resolve Lehman Brothers without a bankruptcy, as it had Bear Stearns, was the single biggest mistake in the series of mistakes in 2007 and 2008 that led to the financial panic and the ensuing epidemic of job losses. -David Malpass

The Fed should make a clear commitment to stable money to reduce the swings in interest rates and inflation. Instead, it champions and flaunts unstable money. This encourages momentum trading and the growth of derivatives. Meanwhile, layers of financial regulation make Washington bigger and more powerful but don't fix the underlying problems. -David Malpass

Think how weird profit margins are: We've got high unemployment and financial crises – and world record profit margins. People think the American market is very cheap. We don't. The market quite incorrectly gives full credit to today's earnings. -Jeremy Grantham

I would say that financial markets are very inefficient, and capable of extremes of being completely dysfunctional. -Jeremy Grantham

I consider most of the talent in the financial world to be suboptimal. It could be better placed earning its living in the real world. -Jeremy Grantham

If you worry about financial Armageddon, it is indeed metaphorically the time to stock your bunker with guns, ammunition, canned food and gold bars. -Nouriel Roubini

A currency serves three functions: providing a means of payment, a unit of account and a store of value. Gold may be a store of value for wealth, but it is not a means of payment. You cannot pay for your groceries with it. Nor is it a unit of account. Prices of goods and services, and of financial assets, are not denominated in gold terms. -Nouriel Roubini

No country can be complacent in making sure that excessive debt of the household doesn't create excesses and weaknesses in the financial system. Everything is interconnected. -Nouriel Roubini

The economic costs, the financial costs, the job losses, the income losses, the fiscal costs of bailing out financial system are becoming larger and larger. -Nouriel Roubini

The global financial crisis – missed by most analysts – shows that most forecasters are poor at pricing in economic/financial risks, let alone geopolitical ones. -Nouriel Roubini

Intellectual capital will always trump financial capital. -Paul Tudor Jones

I have seen journals with good financial backing and editorial support die because they looked so bad nobody wanted to publish them. -Denis Dutton

The newness effect of a new thing wears off in nine months to a year, but financial security can last a lifetime. -Dan Buettner

My go-to gifts are scarves from my friend Matin Maulawizada's nonprofit organization, Afghan Hands, which supports disenfranchised women in Afghanistan. In exchange for their beautiful embroidery, the women are given financial aid and classes in math and literacy. The scarves are all stunning and one of a kind. -Claire Danes

Nine Inch Nails is like building an army to go conquer. We build it, then we play, and we have to play so much to validate building it, financially. It leads to getting burn-out because a tour that would be fun if it lasted three weeks has to last 15 weeks. -Trent Reznor

People who work in financial services don't have one shred of concern about the well-being of the people they serve. They're only interested in themselves. -Barry Schwartz

If our financial industry regarded security the way the health-care sector does, I would stuff my cash in a mattress under my bed. -Avi Rubin

Economic and financial crisis are getting much more usual, and they are not confined to a given country but they immediately spread all over the world, and you have to be prepared for that. -Sebastian Pinera

No matter who you are, what you've accomplished, what your financial situation is – when you're dealing with a parent with Alzheimer's, you yourself feel helpless. The parent can't work, can't live alone, and is totally dependent, like a toddler. As the disease unfolds, you don't know what to expect. -Maria Shriver

People don't like it, but inevitably we need to think about both the costs and the benefits of health care. We cannot avoid the financial consequences. -Steven Levitt

Schools still operate as if all knowledge is contained in books, and as if the salient points in books must be stored in each human brain – to be used when needed. The political and financial powers controlling schools decide what these salient points are. -Sugata Mitra

If you have a traditional view of economics, you're probably thinking of Ben Bernanke making Fed policy, or the guys creating financial derivatives at Goldman Sachs. -Emily Oster

There are good reasons why we don't want everyone to learn nuclear physics, medicine or how financial markets work. Our entire modern project has been about delegating power over us to skilled people who want to do the work and be rewarded accordingly. -Evgeny Morozov

The richer you are and the more financial advisers you employ, the less likelihood there is that you can ever discover what you are really worth. -Felix Dennis

America, ladies and gentlemen, has done more for me financially than Britain ever has, or ever could have done. -Felix Dennis

The financial benefits of prefabrication have never been as large as its advocates predicted, for although some labor costs can be reduced by machine manufacturing, on-site assembly of any building still depends to some extent on the handwork of skilled craftsmen. -Martin Filler

Art is not an investment. Art is something you buy because you are financially solvent enough to give yourself a pleasure of living with great works rather than having to just see them in museums. People who are buying art at the top of the market as an investment are foolish. -Arne Glimcher

A strong accountability system needs to broaden, not narrow, the curriculum. That cannot happen if you only have accountability without adequate school funding. Until Tallahassee understands the need to raise the bar as well as the financial investment, Florida will continue to celebrate mediocrity at the expense of true achievement. -Dan Gelber

I feel very lucky that I don't have to rely on a man to give me financial security. That's a big deal. -Kirsten Dunst

As with products on supermarket shelves, the public has a right to know where their financial products and services come from. -Geoff Mulgan

Traditionally, sport has looked down at number crunchers, but the reality is that they give sport the financial sustenance it needs. -Harsha Bhogle

According to the supermarkets, there is no such thing as 'out of season.' Berries in the middle of February? Why not? Seafood flown in from Japan? Sure. While it all adds up to appetizing and varied meals throughout the year, regardless of the weather, it comes with a price tag – both ethical and financial. -Homaro Cantu

What is the source of power of musicians who are financially browbeaten, most of whom work for minimum wage or less? Musicians who cannot even afford to buy tickets to operas or concerts in which they themselves perform? -Itay Talgam

America is militarily overstretched, politically polarized and financially indebted. -Ivan Krastev

Impact investing has become a broad umbrella that includes all investing with a focus on both financial return and social impact, but in its best form, impact investing prioritizes impact over returns and achieves outcomes that traditional investing cannot. -Jacqueline Novogratz

After working in cities for nearly 40 years, I am telling you that every city can improve its quality of life in less than three years, no matter the scale or the financial conditions. -Jaime Lerner

Climate change should not fundamentally be seen as a political or partisan issue, but it has been turned into a political football primarily by the climate deniers who have a vested interested in maintaining the status quo. That includes certain industrial interests, financial interests and political interests. -James Balog

My grandmother told me: 'Never be in debt to anyone or anything.' Which is probably why I've never been financially extravagant – I still go to Costco. I'm always conscious of living within my means. -Jill Scott

I would say for every successful black woman in America or in the world, really, it's difficult to be the head of the household, financially. It is for the man in your life. It can be very hard for them. And there's a delicate balance. I'm not quite sure I know what that balance is just yet. -Jill Scott

I don't want the United States to be in a global economy where our economic future is bound to that of Zimbabwe. We can't necessarily trust the decisions that are being made financially in other countries. -Michele Bachmann

You know for years, I've heard financial experts stress the importance of teaching your kids about money, but it wasn't until I saw my own son's perspective change that I became a true believer. -LZ Granderson

Maybe we all need to leave our children with a value legacy, and not a financial one. A value for things with a personal touch – an autographed book, a soul-searching letter. -Lakshmi Pratury

There are a lot of pros to doing a film, as far as it helping your film career, and it is completely different financially. But theatre is the only place where you get to actually be the character, and nobody is going to come around and change it later. -Jimmi Simpson

I've lived so frugally for so long. I have to have that financial security or the world feels out of control for me. -DJ Qualls

When I was at drama school, I was totally broke, and a lot of my mates had jobs and were financially very good to me, so if, for example, I take them away on a trip to a football match in Europe, it means that I can pay them back a bit. -James Nesbitt

If you thought financial crises came and went, just count on them – another economic collapse, it's almost going to be like not news any more. But for startups this is great, because it's a perpetual driver of disruption. -Steve Jurvetson

The U.S., France, Germany and Canada have all responded to the financial crisis by boosting rather than cutting their science funding. The U.K. has not. -Martin Rees

There are uses to adversity, and they don't reveal themselves until tested. Whether it's serious illness, financial hardship, or the simple constraint of parents who speak limited English, difficulty can tap unexpected strengths. -Sonia Sotomayor

There is a need for financial reform along ethical lines that would produce in its turn an economic reform to benefit everyone. This would nevertheless require a courageous change of attitude on the part of political leaders. -Pope Francis

Yes, there is a burden of financial insecurity. I don't think you find it in mood. Income is correlated with life satisfaction, so maybe you do find it in life satisfaction. You don't find it in mood, and I think it is very important. -Daniel Kahneman

There are so many different kinds of motivation for investing or giving or parting with your money in whatever other way, and plain old financial return is obviously attractive. But people are not always rational and are not just looking for that. -Jessica Jackley

Greed is not a financial issue. It's a heart issue. -Andy Stanley

I don't need legitimization to take part in Israeli productions; I am a good actress. To work in Israel is a financial investment for me. I do it for emotional, not artistic, reasons. -Mili Avital

I took up boxing out of sheer interest and to help my parents financially. -Mary Kom

My parents couldn't give me a whole lot of financial support, but they gave me good genes. My dad is a handsome son-of-a-gun, and my mom is beautiful. And I've definitely been the lucky recipient. So, thank you, Mom and Dad. -Ashton Kutcher

I like to dress up and look nice. I'm not quite at the stage yet financially to do that too often, but it's nice to push the boat out a little bit for award ceremonies and stuff. -Simon Bird

Catering is extremely demanding financially and physically. It's a business. -Diane Mott Davidson

There are people who design buildings that are not technically and financially good, and there are those who do. Two categories – simple. -Frank Gehry

Acting never was about the money for me… Maybe in 10 years, I'll be able to appreciate the fact that I am financially stable and independent and I don't have to make bad choices. I can be very picky. -Emma Watson

The Federal Reserve, the Treasury, all the regulator agencies – if there's a problem of the financial mechanism in society, the only one to fix it is government. They've got a legitimate role. -Dick Cheney

Thank God I have a financial planner who is really conservative. -Artie Lange

It's hard work, 'Doctor Who,' but let's be frank about it, I'm fortunate to be rewarded in the ways that I am. I don't just mean financially, I mean the nature of the part and everything that comes with it. -Matt Smith

I don't think I'd be happy if I were satisfied. I enjoy challenge, and I wouldn't say that I'm an ambitious person career-wise or financially, really. I would like to travel more comfortably, but that's really about all I need. -Jason Isbell

I know it's financially lucrative to go out on my own, but I don't like it. It's really hard work, just the performance aspect. I like people who look like they've been together for too long and sound like they've been together too long. I like rock n' roll bands. -Jason Isbell

Things like the financial markets – a proper grounding in mathematics could help the common man. I believe that if people are more familiar with mathematical concepts… it can help deal with modern life, which is increasingly complex. -Viswanathan Anand

Every morning when I pick up the newspaper and read about an earthquake in Japan or problems in European financial institutions, the first question I ask our staff is 'What is money-market-fund exposure?' -Mary Schapiro

I came out of my professional athlete career with a 450 credit score, no money in the bank to show for it, but I had an Ivy League degree. So I put that Dartmouth degree to good use and got a job on Wall Street. I hated it but used the time to make connections and become financially literate. -Brian J. White

I'm lucky enough that financially I don't have to feel obliged to go for the bigger stuff. I like the stories and scripts to dictate if I want to do them. -Ewan McGregor

I think the business community is smart enough to realise that just having a trade union is not enough. They are smart enough to know they need to be part of a union that has political and financial power. -Marjorie Scardino

Minnesotans lost their jobs because the credit rating agencies didn't do the only job they're supposed to have, the only job they had, which is to give accurate, objective ratings to financial products. -Al Franken

I'm very, very fortunate to be in the job that I'm in, and I would love for it to continue forever, but it won't. I have to financially and emotionally prepare for the day that 'Mad Men' will go away, because who knows what my next job is going to be? -Rich Sommer

I was OK in school, but I always missed a lot because I was playing so much. But if I'd stuck at it, I imagine that I'd be doing something financial or economical. Finance always attracted me, even though maths was always a bit of a love-hate relationship. I would have tried playing football, but I don't think I'd have made it. -Matteo Manassero

There are few colonial nations anymore. Instead, we are colonized by financial institutions beyond our political control. We are colonized with pens and papers and millions of little digital bursts transferring billions of dollars all over the globe in the blink of an eye. -Charlie Pierce

Every movie that I've had to really knock down the door for has been an enormous success for me. Not just like a financial success but a real personal success. -Jodie Foster

If America is a ship, it looks a lot like it's sinking – financially, morally, spiritually. It's frightening. -Kirk Cameron

I really feel all my adult life has been spent in that little black box. If a wonderful part on TV came along I would do it. But I don't want to do a recurring role. It would just be my luck that the thing would be successful. I'm old enough now and also secure enough financially that I really only want to do what I want to do. -Bea Arthur

I think there's really only been one successful video game adaptation, and that was probably 'Tomb Raider.' Whether or not you thought it was a good movie, it was successful financially. -David S. Goyer

As I've progressed in my career, I've come to appreciate – and really value – the other attributes that define a company's success beyond the P&L: great leadership, long-term financial strength, ethical business practices, evolving business strategies, sound governance, powerful brands, values-based decision-making. -Ursula Burns

Managing and navigating through a financial crisis is no fun at all. -Howard Schultz

Credit markets were originally created to serve human needs; to provide businesses and individuals with capital to start or expand businesses or fulfill other financial needs. -Muhammad Yunus

My mother was devoted to helping people – with my father's money! – who had great voices but didn't have the financial means to study music. He and my mum gave away dozens of music scholarships, and my mum opened a school in town, introduced opera to children and created fantastic programmes. -Salma Hayek

The main message of Climate Revolution is that climate change is caused by the rotten financial system we've got, designed to create poverty and rip off any profits for a small amount of rich people. Meanwhile, it destroys the earth. -Vivienne Westwood

Economics is all about consumption. People either spend money now or they use financial instruments – like bonds, stocks and savings accounts – so they can spend more later. -Adam Davidson

The economics profession advances by one confusing financial disaster at a time. -Adam Davidson

If the American government can't stand behind the dollar, the world's benchmark currency, then the global financial system will very likely enter a new era in which there is much less trade and much less economic growth. It would be, by most accounts, the largest self-imposed financial disaster in history. -Adam Davidson

When you see a merger between two giants in a declining industry, it can look like the financial version of a couple having a baby to save a marriage. -Adam Davidson

Obviously it's much easier to say that you're going to follow your passions when you're financially secure, but at least we can take solace in the fact that we now have the time to pursue the things that we really want to pursue because now the option of doing things just for the money isn't necessarily there. -Natalie Portman

I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let's face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what's sexy. And men define what's feminine. It's ridiculous. -Beyonce Knowles

A clear lesson of history is that a 'sine qua non' for sustained economic recovery following a financial crisis is a thoroughgoing repair of the financial system. -Janet Yellen

I would ask: Given the nature of free-market capitalism – where the rule is to rise to the top at all costs – is it possible to have a financial industry hero? And by the way, this is not a pop-culture trend we're talking about. There aren't many financial heroes in literature, theater or cinema. -Martin Scorsese

You should breathe deeply and chant, 'Money will easily and effortlessly flow into my life' as often as you can every day. Things will start to change after a month. If you believe you will be financially secure, then you are opening yourself up to change. -Louise L. Hay

My target is to make the players as rich as possible within the financial constraints of the club. My target is not to give them less money. I'm happy to make them rich. -Arsene Wenger

I put forward a pretty general theory that financial markets are intrinsically unstable. That we really have a false picture when we think about markets tending towards equilibrium. -George Soros

A lot of the evil in the world is actually not intentional. A lot of people in the financial system did a lot of damage without intending to. -George Soros

The reality is that financial markets are self-destabilizing; occasionally they tend toward disequilibrium, not equilibrium. -George Soros

Roads, better harnesses for horses, time-keeping devices, financial instruments like a currency that was recognized everywhere in the kingdom, enforceable contracts – all of this made commerce more appealing than plunder. -Steven Pinker

Ever since Romanticism, an oppositional mode, artists have the right, and indeed the duty, to attack social convention. But it is ridiculous and in fact self-infantilizing for them to expect to be financially supported by the general public whom they are insulting. -Camille Paglia

My financial service business is the absolute best thing I have done to empower the poor. I run many charities and fight many political causes, but my financial service company is the greatest gift I've given. -Russell Simmons

I'd say the main way people get into terrible financial trouble is just to spend too much money relative to their income, and that is an endemic problem in the United States of America, and that's the kind of thing that should be taught about in schools. -Ben Stein

Forces that you might think are utterly unrelated to creativity can have a big impact. Technology, obviously, but environment, too. Even financial structures can affect the actual content of a song. The making of music is profoundly affected by the market. -David Byrne

So many times I've heard people say that the right to marry for gay and lesbian couples won't really change anything other than some legal and financial stuff. It's a dumb argument: those legal and financial effects matter. -Alice Dreger

The problem of a rising population destroying more than four tons of soil for every human already alive needs to find its way into corporate board rooms if we are to enjoy future financial, economic and political stability. -Allan Savory

Structured settlements are a common way for people who have been injured to receive an insurance payout. The periodic payments provide ongoing income and reduce the risk of blowing a lump sum through poor financial choices. -Suze Orman

The foundation of a financial fresh start actually has nothing to do with money or specific financial dos and don'ts. The first, and most difficult, step is to absolve yourself and your spouse or partner of any guilt. -Suze Orman

Every financial worry you want to banish and financial dream you want to achieve comes from taking tiny steps today that put you on a path toward your goals. -Suze Orman

If you make time each month to give your money some attention, you'll start the next year in fabulous financial shape. -Suze Orman

Learn to recognize true wealth. Money itself will not make you financially free. That comes as a result of only that powerful state of mind which tells us that we are worth far more than our money. -Suze Orman

Understand and accept the cycles of money. The setbacks you may have today or next year will not keep you from financial freedom. If you hold on to your goals and dreams, you will get there. -Suze Orman

Yes, your kids should go to school. No, you shouldn't bankroll their degree whatever the cost. You've spent your life creating a sound financial plan; don't upend it by suspending your retirement savings or taking out a home equity line of credit to pay for a pricey college. -Suze Orman

Prenups are so unromantic – a sign of distrust, not love. Time for a reality check, my friends. First, drawing up a prenuptial agreement together is a sign of incredible trust and financial openness – you're fooling yourself if you think you can achieve complete intimacy without it. -Suze Orman

You have got to be the masters of your own financial future. -Suze Orman

Anything that gets people to think harder about their financial security and take some responsibility is a good thing. -Suze Orman

Cash – in savings accounts, short-term CDs or money market deposits – is great for an emergency fund. But to fulfill a long-term investment goal like funding your retirement, consider buying stocks. The more distant your financial target, the longer inflation will gnaw at the purchasing power of your money. -Suze Orman

When it comes to tackling your financial goals, whatever they might be, there's no time like the present. -Suze Orman

Time is key to building your financial security. -Suze Orman

There are 80 jobs in which women earn more than men – positions like financial analyst, speech-language pathologist, radiation therapist, library worker, biological technician, motion picture projectionist. -Warren Farrell

Feminists who say that I switched sides because I am an opportunist should know that exactly the opposite is true. It's cost me a lot of money. I've gone from being well-to-do to being $70,000 in debt. I have done something self-destructive financially. I could only do it because I don't have to support a wife and child. -Warren Farrell

I can live in a bubble, I like not to know anything about financials. -Alice Temperley

I am a woman who, you know, I run my own business. I don't need a man financially, for anything, but just to be a companion. -Jessica White

My life has shifted to different levels financially, in terms of fame as a result of being blessed enough to be able to share my music with the world, and what that has done for me. Despite all of that, I always want people to listen to my music and be able to relate to it as well as to me. -Trey Songz

Executives must place a priority on wellbeing if they want to attract the right people, keep their best people, and drive their company's financial performance. -Tom Rath

As an actor, the ambition is to play interesting characters. And in the indie genre world, the budgets are low. That allows me, as an actor, not to have a financial value behind my name, to justify me being in these bigger parts for these types of movies. -A. J. Bowen

It is human nature to be shortsighted and to lose momentum to make changes once the story is out of the headlines and there aren't financial incentives or political rewards. We owe to ourselves to learn from the past so we can try to do better. -Sheri Fink

I knew ART was was going to give me this opportunity to expand my role as a director and finally let me have a seat at the table where I could get involved in these policy discussions and producing discussions and, frankly, the financial discussions. -Diane Paulus

BitCoin is actually an exploit against network complexity. Not financial networks, or computer networks, or social networks. Networks themselves. -Dan Kaminsky

There is a big divergence between views on a variety of policy issues from fiscal stimulus to financial regulation. It's my hope and my ambition for the economics profession that as we advance our knowledge, that those discussions will narrow in their focus, and that it will help to have more prudent policy-making down the road. -Lars Peter Hansen

Early on, in discussions of financial oversight, people would say, 'Well, this is a very complicated problem, therefore it requires a complicated solution.' And at that step, I would say, 'Well, wait a minute. Just because it's a complicated problem doesn't mean the best course of action immediately is one that's complicated.' -Lars Peter Hansen

Just as Wall Street needs to break the hold of the bonus culture, which drives risk-taking that is rational for individuals but damaging to the financial system, so science must break the tyranny of the luxury journals. The result will be better research that better serves science and society. -Randy Schekman

Do not leave yourself or your family unprotected against financial storms… Build up savings. -Ezra Taft Benson

The private sector is growing so incredibly in India, in every city you have industries for whom building a concert hall would be nothing financially. But they just don't do it. -Zubin Mehta

Maitre d's are at the financial spigot of the restaurant, meaning they control who gets in and who doesn't, but aside from that, they don't do anything. And yet they get paid as much as the highest-paid people in the place. -Joe Bastianich

London is the financial capital of Europe, a great platform to America and Asia. I love the fact that in British culture you can be whoever you want, and people don't even look at you. I don't feel that in Paris or Milan. -Lapo Elkann

Historically, philanthropy has been something that you do when you turn 65, and you are retired, and you have spent your life accumulating your financial resources, and now you finally have time to do it. But because of the Internet revolution, that in turn revolutionized economic growth and wealth generation. -Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen

The single most remarkable (and revealing) fact of the Obama presidency may very well be the lack of a single prosecution of Wall Street executives for the massive fraud that precipitated the 2008 financial crisis. -Glenn Greenwald

If you look upon chronic diseases as an epidemic, and you see that the chronically ill are the poor, then you see that this issue of the uninsured is not really a moral but a financial obligation to change health care. -Patrick Soon-Shiong

There is a finite group of major financial players… and overall, the best thing for all of us is to be in an industry that's well respected, well regarded, and well thought of. -Gary Cohn

I think with every successful consumer Internet business, there will be lawyers that are interested in going after your company, especially when they think that there's a financial incentive. -Jeremy Stoppelman

We all know business financial performance improves when more women are in senior levels of management and leadership. -Beth Brooke

You have no ability, if you're a financial institution and you're threatened with criminal prosecution, you have no ability to negotiate. -Warren Buffett

The digital revolution has wrest a little control away from corporate publishers and white, male, middle-aged critics, but the financial value put on the job of the writer and the misconceptions around that make it extremely difficult to enter the profession. -Sara Sheridan

The Internet can give young people a fantastic platform to become financially independent and have global businesses without leaving Russia. -Dasha Zhukova

The District of Columbia is an extreme example of disconnect between financial input and educational outcome. Unfortunately, extreme is not the same as abnormal. -P. J. O'Rourke

Tax time is the perfect opportunity to jumpstart your spring-cleaning by tackling your financial to-do list. -Alexa Von Tobel

Without any formal personal finance instruction in our high school or college curricula, many college seniors who graduate in the red will continue to make common financial mistakes that only exacerbate their debt burdens. -Alexa Von Tobel

By teaching twenty-something year olds responsible debt management practices, we can help them create a balanced lifestyle and find peace of mind through increased financial awareness, smart saving and long-term investing. -Alexa Von Tobel

The best advice that I can offer is that being proactive and a careful planner is key. Think about the major things that could shake up your financial life, and I'll bet there are some great ways to protect yourself. -Alexa Von Tobel

Investing in renter's insurance is hugely worthwhile. It protects you from a whole load of financial pitfalls around your home. Your home should be the center of your sense of security – not the cause of you losing financial security. -Alexa Von Tobel

A good financial plan is a road map that shows us exactly how the choices we make today will affect our future. -Alexa Von Tobel

At LearnVest, we're working to make financial planning both accessible and affordable so that everyone has the opportunity to get on track financially. -Alexa Von Tobel

A financial plan is a way to take all of the money advice you come across and figure out how it applies to your specific financial situation. -Alexa Von Tobel

We're providing planning to a huge audience who's never had access to financial planners before. This was always my plan for LearnVest. It was in my very first pitch deck. -Alexa Von Tobel

When you have a lot of money, there's so many places you can go to manage your money. But when you don't have money, mathematically you actually need a financial plan more. You can't really afford to make mistakes. So why is this such a luxury product? -Alexa Von Tobel

Being that I was raised in the Catholic faith, I am very careful about what I choose. I've turned down a lot of projects that… could have helped me a lot financially, and I've quit shows because of where they were going and because I feel like I have to be a role model for my kids. -Siobhan Fallon Hogan

When you grow up in life and you're poor, and because you're an athlete or you got rich overnight in music, unless you have access to financial advice or for the transition or matriculation of that process, then of course, you're going to go broke. -Steve Stoute

Sometimes I have so many financial conflicts of interest that I can't even keep them straight. -Michael Arrington

If a tech journalist needs financial security before doing what their conscience dictates, I'm not sure they should be calling themselves journalists at all. -Michael Arrington

Friendships and marriage are far more potent than financial conflicts. -Michael Arrington

I think it is really important that people at least have some potentially difficult discussions about what their expectations are – and not just financially – prior to getting married. It should really even happen prior to people living together or casting their lot together. -Laura Wasser

Especially where financial matters are concerned, when it comes to dissolving a marriage, any dissembling at all is strictly against the law – on penalty of perjury. You need to disclose fully and factually, which is precisely what the discovery process is all about. -Laura Wasser

You shouldn't be trying to create a system where no bank fails, but you should be creating one that catches a bank and allows it to fail without impacting the financial markets. -Bob Diamond

Soon after the financial crisis of 2008, I was at a meeting in Washington with a group of U.S. senators. They had invited me to provide a point of view on new regulation; regulation aimed at ensuring we never have to go through the events of 2008 ever again. -Bob Diamond

Inventing sources is not a crime in and of itself, although it certainly violates every code of journalistic ethics known to man. A criminal fraud case would require that the reporter's deceit had been malicious and resulted in financial gain. -Brendan I. Koerner

St. Louis is a customer- and partner-rich environment for any financial tech startup. -Jim McKelvey

It's obvious that St. Louis has certain advantages compared to other cities: namely, a concentration of financial services. -Jim McKelvey

President Obama has a good sense not just of the economic requisites for financial crisis firefighting but also how you build political support for moving forward on reforming the financial system, making sure that the banks are carrying enough capital. -Lael Brainard

We need financial regulation that allows businesses and the banks they use to have access to the tools that help keep prices of consumer goods – like groceries and home heating oil – steady, while ensuring that the taxpayers are never again on the hook for the types of wild bets that helped crash the economy in 2008. -Jim Himes

It should surprise no one that I'm out arguing for small government, reduced spending and getting our financial house in order, along with reasonable regulations and no more. -Mike Pompeo

So many women are financially dependent on men. So why can't men be dependent on women? I'm totally okay with it. -Sonam Kapoor

I started feeling secure in every way once I began to accept myself the way I was. Whether that was emotional, financial or professional security, all of it came and embraced me because I embraced myself. -Vidya Balan

I'm a bit of a shopaholic. I've been working in the Bollywood film industry since I was 17, and I have always been financially independent, but I think I would be useless looking after my own money. -Shilpa Shetty

For too long, tricks and traps in mortgages, credit cards, and other financial transactions have stripped wealth from working families. -Jeff Merkley

The American people deserve to know that their elected leaders play by the exact same rules that they play by and that their lawmakers' only interest is what's best for the country, not their own financial gain. -Kirsten Gillibrand

While we can't begin to repay the debt we owe our veterans for their brave service, we can certainly take steps to ease the physical, psychological and financial hardships they may be experiencing. -Kirsten Gillibrand

When I was first elected to the House in 2006, it was important to me to send a clear message to the people of NY-20: I wanted to be a representative for the people and shed some light on their government, so I became the first member of Congress to post my schedule, my financial disclosures and my earmark requests all online. -Kirsten Gillibrand

Early education is the type of issue politicians nod their heads at, and then when it comes time to make a tough decision, a financial trade-off, inevitably it's about the first item tossed from the table. -J. B. Pritzker

I thought a company that provides mutual-fund information could be a great business, because you could construct an effective moat by building large financial databases and customer lists and a strong brand name. -Joe Mansueto

My background in financial services and my experience as a state representative have given me the ability to identify our country's fiscal problems and find steps to remedy them. -Darlene Senger

For me, one of the lessons from 9/11 is that you have to give the organization context for how you're acting, and you've got to communicate constantly, in this case particularly with all the changes that were occurring in the financial marketplace and in the economy. -Kenneth Chenault

The potential financial reward for building the 'next Windows' is so great that there will never be a shortage of new technologies seeking to challenge it. -Bill Gates

The spread of online information isn't just good for charities. It's also good for donors. You can go to a site like Charity Navigator, which evaluates nonprofits on their financial health as well as the amount of information they share about their work. -Bill Gates

Even the securest financial plan and the finest health coverage aren't enough to hold us steady when the challenges come… We need something more, something deeper and unshakeable, something that will see us through life's hard times. -Billy Graham

Millions of Americans and people around the world, especially young people who face intense financial challenges today, haven't been taught how to take control of their financial future. -Robert Kiyosaki

If you want to thrive in today's economy, you must challenge the status quo and get the financial education necessary to succeed. -Robert Kiyosaki

The subprime disaster was a result of financial bombs – derivatives – exploding in financial institutions such as AIG and Lehman Brothers, as well as banks and financial institutions throughout the world. -Robert Kiyosaki

This 90/10 rule holds true in almost anything financial. Take the game of golf, for example. Ten percent of the professional golfers make 90 percent of the money. -Robert Kiyosaki

A financial crisis is a great time for professional investors and a horrible time for average ones. -Robert Kiyosaki

When you think about it, three of our biggest financial decisions in life are made at times of peak emotional excitement: deciding to get married, buying a home, and having kids. -Robert Kiyosaki

Unlike many of its European neighbors, Britain shares many of America's financial traits. -Robert Kiyosaki

Working hard to earn more money and then giving it away in higher taxes isn't financially intelligent, even if you do put some of it into a retirement account. -Robert Kiyosaki

When my book 'Rich Dad's Prophecy' was released in 2002, most financial newspapers and magazines trashed it because I discussed a looming stock market crash. -Robert Kiyosaki

The minute a Wall Street firm purchases your debt, your bank no longer has it on its financial statement, which then allows the bank to look for more credit card customers. That's one reason why you get so many credit card offers. -Robert Kiyosaki

If medical doctors can be sued for malpractice, shouldn't financial professionals practice under the same safeguard? -Robert Kiyosaki

Remember that all financial markets are filled with good but not necessarily innocent people looking after their own self-interests before they look after yours. -Robert Kiyosaki

Many financial advisors recommend that you diversify for your own protection. What they fail to tell you is that it is also for their protection. Since most financial advisors cannot tell you exactly which stock or mutual fund is a great investment, they tell you to buy a bunch of them. -Robert Kiyosaki

By the 1880s, baseball was entrenched in the Cape's sandy soil. Semipro teams, commonplace before World War I, were organized into the first Cape Cod League in 1923 – Orleans joined the four original teams five years later. By 1940, the league had foundered on financial shoals and disbanded. -Jane Leavy

If I had my choice, every high school would be teaching financial literacy along with math and science. -Gregory Meeks

What's good for the financial industry probably isn't good for you. -Bethany McLean

I've watched the world crash and burn in every sense. I've watched the record industry crash and burn; politically I've watched it crash and burn, financially crash and burn. -Daryl Hall

Across the globe, regardless of nationality or financial status, there is a common dream every mother has for her children – for them to live full, healthy and productive lives. As a mother, I share that dream for my children. -Sylvia Mathews Burwell

Technologies, including cell phones, have the potential to help millions of poor people out of poverty by enabling access to a range of safe, affordable financial services – most importantly, savings accounts – that have long been out of reach. -Sylvia Mathews Burwell

I made my money in an honest way. And I have declared it all. By co-founding Infosys along with Mr. Murthy and others, I earned financially. -Nandan Nilekani

A couple of taxi drivers have asked me if we can survive financially as an independent nation. I say, how come we are more stupid than Denmark or Finland or Sweden? They've all got the same amount of people. Are we all going to down tools? Is everybody in Scotland going to stop working? -Eddi Reader

If you take the '70s with Blaxploitation pictures, there was a proliferation of black-content films and motion pictures, television, stage plays and so forth at a time when Hollywood was in trouble financially, and it was cheaper to do black films to keep the lights on until they could reestablish themselves. -Glynn Turman

If we are going to be able to create a new economic vision, companies will need to rethink every aspect of their operations; their bottom lines, ownership structures, demands on financial returns, how they raise capital. For example, an ethical company would say it should only take a fair share of the planet's resources and campaign on this. -Tim Jackson

We are all socialists now, it seems. John McCain, David Cameron and Gordon Brown attack bankers' irresponsible behaviour and salaries, and call for state intervention in the financial markets. But these calls will not get them elected or re-elected if they are addressed only to the banking sector. -Noreena Hertz

My father wasn't allowing me control and the financial freedom that I was asking for. I was 17, about to be 18 within a year, so I started asking more questions because I felt that I needed to start learning about those things. -Dominique Moceanu

I'm glad I made business investments, because it gave me the confidence financially to make brave choices. If I hadn't done that, I'd still have been trying to play 19-year-olds in films. I know there are other avenues for me. -Preity Zinta

It's great to talk about how good things are now. But we can't sit on our laurels and expect that our time will sustain itself if we don't do a better job on issues like education… It's absolutely the case that the low cost of college tuition that I was able to enjoy and the financial aid I was able to receive made my education possible. -Wendy Davis

I have to tell you, I live paycheck to paycheck like most Americans. It's very difficult for me to say, 'Hey, I can give up my paycheck,' because the reality is, I have financial obligations that I have to meet on a month-to-month basis that doesn't make it possible for me. -Linda Sanchez

The financial doctrines so zealously followed by American companies might help optimize capital when it is scarce. But capital is abundant. If we are to see our economy really grow, we need to encourage migratory capital to become productive capital – capital invested for the long-term in empowering innovations. -Clayton M. Christensen

We have shown that solar-electrified villages can be technically and financially self-sufficient. -Bunker Roy

It's easy to complain that pharmaceutical companies place profits over people and apparently care more about hair loss than TB. However, many in the pharmaceutical industry would be glad for the opportunity to reorient their research toward medicines that are truly needed, provided only that such research is financially sustainable. -Thomas Pogge

Shipping is so cheap that it makes more financial sense for Scottish cod to be sent 10,000 miles to China to be filleted, then sent back to Scottish shops and restaurants, than to pay Scottish filleters. -Rose George

A lot of the actors I knew threw in the towel when they became mothers. I couldn't do that financially, and I didn't want to – but I was knackered all the time. -Lesley Manville

A financial institution has the task of taking risks, and if it's a well run institution – say, Goldman Sachs – it tries to cover the potential losses to itself, but only to itself. -Noam Chomsky

Obama's primary constituency was financial institutions. They were the core of the funding for his campaign. They expect to be paid back. And they were. They were paid back by coming out richer and more powerful than they were before the crisis that they created. -Noam Chomsky

From the 1970s, there has been a significant change in the U.S. economy, as planners, private and state, shifted it toward financialization and the offshoring of production, driven in part by the declining rate of profit in domestic manufacturing. -Noam Chomsky

I never dreamed I would want to be or become a financial advisor. -Willie Aames

The true identity theft is not financial. It's not in cyberspace. It's spiritual. It's been taken. -Stephen Covey

Obamacare has made the government part of our health care decisions. The IRS controls all of our financial information. The NSA apparently sees everything else. -Ben Shapiro

Quite frankly, the financial community has to improve its image. The financial community has to be much more transparent than it is. -Henry Kravis

I had always been interested in markets – specifically, the theory that in financial markets, goods will trade at a fair value only when everyone has access to the same information. -Pierre Omidyar

When you're talking about capital and financial things, which I certainly pay a lot of attention to, I base those decisions on one question that I typically ask myself, which is 'Does it help us to build a better company?' -Jim Bankoff

Especially when you talk about the power of documentary filmmaking, you can't really have a slant; financially, you can't have a slant on the end goals. -Amy J. Berg

We can't deny the financial toll illegal immigrants take on our communities. -Dick Mountjoy

It's expensive to raise a child with special needs, which people don't even think about. Emotionally it can be a struggle, but financially it's really rough. -Elena Delle Donne

Reflecting back, we all make mistakes; we all go through our stuff – relationships, financial, all kinds of stuff – and if you can grow from that and pass that message on, it's a pretty cool thing. -Nikki Sixx

Eligibility for a temple recommend is not based on financial worth. That has nothing whatever to do with it. It is based on consistent personal behavior, on the goodness of one's life. It is not concerned with money matters, but rather with things of eternity. -Gordon B. Hinckley

An effective U.S. policy toward Sudan – one capable of changing the situation in the south and affecting the lives of its people – will require top-level attention and a great deal of energy. It should have three elements: aid, diplomacy, and financial disclosure. -Elliott Abrams

It's not just professional athletes and soldiers who are at risk from traumatic brain injury. More than 1.7 million people a year sustain a traumatic brain injury, and about 50,000 of them die each year, according the Centers for Disease Control. There are both emotional and financial costs from these injuries. -Anne Wojcicki

Socialism is about claims of justice, and it is also about money: about wealth, income, physical and financial capital. It is an ideology based on allocating economic resources. It may try to achieve that goal by nationalizing assets, by command-and-control regulation, or by taxation and redistribution. -Virginia Postrel

In terms of companies, they must stand for something bigger. They must be dedicated to something larger than financial results. I reject the Milton Friedman belief that a company's sole responsibility is to the shareholders. -Srikumar Rao

Many bought into the idea that America could go from a technology-based, export-oriented powerhouse to a services-led, consumption-based economy – and somehow still expect to prosper. That idea was flat wrong. Our economy tilted instead toward the quicker profits of financial services. -Jeffrey R. Immelt

You know, oil prices from 2007, on the strength of a very robust global economy and a very robust emerging China, many of you will recall, ramped up to near $150 a barrel. Then we had the financial – U.S. financial collapse. Oil prices collapsed all the way down to $40 a barrel. -Rex Tillerson

It is important that the right of Israel to exist should be respected and also the viable Palestinian authorities, in terms of political and financial situation, be supported so that both can live side by side in peace and security. That is a two-state solution. -Ban Ki-moon

Mysterious can be cool, if you're in Hollywood and everyone's happy. But it can be really bad if people perceive that the financial interests are adversarial, that there's money versus people. A lot of Goldman Sachs people went into government, so at a time when there's a distrust of institutions, some of that reflects on us. -Lloyd Blankfein

We certainly had an upheaval at the start of the Great Depression, and that resulted in a lot of financial reform, but it wasn't done in one stroke, and it wasn't done immediately. The Depression was in 1929 and resulted in the Securities and Exchange Act of '33, '34, '35, '37, '39, and '41. -Lloyd Blankfein

I am pleased to be part of Promontory's steady efforts to assist banks and other financial firms in meeting legal and regulatory obligations and challenges. -Laurence D. Fink

It's OK to have a plan, to invest in your future – for your financial security, your love life, your personal fulfillment, and even your happiness. To have personal happiness as a stated goal doesn't detract from it if you get there. -Karen Finerman

I foresaw the financial crisis. I get messages in my sleep, in pictures and words. I understood that I have a mission and a role in ensuring human existence. I received a message that people would soon start to go crazy. -Shari Arison

I appeal to the Latter-day Saints to be honest with the Lord, and I promise them that peace, prosperity and financial success will attend those who are honest with our Heavenly Father. -Heber J. Grant

All too often, lotteries only add to the problem of the financially disadvantaged by taking money from them and giving nothing of value in return. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

Remember this: debt is a form of bondage. It is a financial termite. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

Priesthood quorums teach and assist their members to attain good health, financial stability, and a year's supply of food and clothing. They also teach their members to be self-reliant and to give their time, talents, and means in behalf of the Church, community, and needy. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

The Patriot Act, passed overwhelmingly but hastily after 9/11, allows the FBI to obtain telecommunication, financial, and credit records without a court order. -Rebecca MacKinnon

When I was in high school, my mom hated football. But then, the more I played, the more it grew on her. This game has done a lot for my family – not just from a financial standpoint, but it also helped bring my family together. -Nick Ferguson

I remember bumming rides across town to Georgia Tech, trying to get myself registered, trying to apply for financial aid, trying to get their coaches to watch my film. -Nick Ferguson

Paradoxically, resource-rich developing countries are often worse off than comparable countries that lack those resources. One reason for this is that large resource endowments provide a huge financial incentive for attempts to overthrow the government and seize power. -Peter Singer

We all have something about ourselves that we'd change if we could in a perfect world, be it our body image, our financial status, our relationship, whatever. I wanted to talk about how nobody's exempted from the realities of life and all those things. -Keri Hilson

A financial shift happened with 'Facing the Giants' and 'Fireproof,' where movies that were faith-based films were profitable. And people in Hollywood – like people in downtown U.S.A. – are out to make money. -John Schneider

When I was in the middle of the 'Scott Pilgrim' series, and it was slowly becoming more popular, though still not financially solvent, I had this real bratty instinct to turn around and do something super arty and dark. I felt dismissed by comics culture, stuck in between the artcomix world and the nerdcomix world, and I was cranky about it. -Bryan Lee O'Malley

The financial services industry is a ward of the state. -Timothy Noah

On Wall Street, financial crisis destroys jobs. Here in Washington, it creates them. The rest is just details. -Timothy Noah

You shouldn't end a band like Westlife and not be financially secure to some extent, but I wasn't at all – it was the complete opposite. But you look at stuff then, 'Well, what do I have? I don't have money but I have a great marriage, three healthy kids, and I have my voice. I'll just start again.' -Shane Filan

Why me? Why did this happen? How could I be in Westlife and then have nothing to show for it financially at the end of it? But it's like, why not me? That's just life. It's tough. There's a lot more problems in the world. There are a lot of people who would wish to God they had my problem instead of having a sick child. -Shane Filan

If I'm honest, I thought Westlife would keep going for longer than it did – we all did – but it sort of came to a natural end. When we decided we were going to split, I thought, 'If I'm going to sing, I'm going to have to do it solo.' Also, financially I was broke, so the decision was ultimately made for me. -Shane Filan

European museums are all dependent on government financing. The moment European governments are under financial pressure, their budgets are cut. -Thomas P. Campbell

Insurance and funding traditionally drive capital investment. But in a world based on access, not ownership, the duration, value, cost and extent of financial services is distinctly different. -Lisa Gansky

Today, the Pope is only a religious figure. At the time of 'The Borgias,' he was also a political leader, a financial leader, and the head of an army. I think popes are much less relevant today than they were then. -Francois Arnaud

Obsession with conventional ideas of 'success' can be harmful enough, but compound that stress with relationships, family, financial woes and health concerns, and you find yourself in a constant state of fight or flight. This causes people to be more reactionary, which further perpetuates the cycle of stress. -Ariel Garten

Wall Street is littered with clever plans to use financial instruments to change behavior – carbon trading, for example. Some have changed the world, and others failed miserably. -Andrew Ross Sorkin

Several companies have explicit policies against cronyism, with good reason. Hiring a family member simply for a relationship can be troubling and may not necessarily serve a company's interests. But by and large, financial firms in particular commonly hire people who have certain connections, whether through family or a business relationship. -Andrew Ross Sorkin

You know what works in venture capital? A group of incredibly smart, connected people who have the financial wherewithal and risk appetite to make multi-million dollar bets on unproven ideas and inexperienced founders. People who can make decisions quickly, and who spend their time trying to help entrepreneurs make the most of that cash. -Sarah Lacy

Accounting rules give financial institutions flexibility about when they choose to recognize venture capital profits. -Alex Berenson

It's one of the fundamental principles of the stock market: When interest rates go up, stocks go down. And along with financial companies and cyclicals, technology companies – with their sky-high price-to-earnings multiples – should be among the biggest losers in an environment of rising rates. -Alex Berenson

Robert M. Morgenthau, the Manhattan district attorney, has seen a few financial schemes in his time. As the lead local prosecutor in the world's financial capital, he has battled frauds like the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, which stole billions of dollars from investors worldwide. -Alex Berenson

Equity is the cushion that protects financial institutions from unexpected changes in the value of their assets. The greater the leverage, the smaller the losses required to wipe out a company's equity, leaving it without enough money to repay the people who hold its debt. -Alex Berenson

The biggest profit center for investment banks is the hefty fees they charge for underwriting stock offerings and giving financial advice, and analysts put those profits at risk if they publish negative conclusions about the companies that pay the fees. -Alex Berenson

Trust-me companies are companies whose financial results gallop ahead of their businesses, companies with seemingly perfect control over their quarterly sales and profits. Companies whose financial statements are loaded with footnotes: companies that short-sellers often attack but rarely dent. -Alex Berenson

Some companies use off-balance-sheet partnerships to raise money or to buy assets without ever telling their shareholders in their financial statements. -Alex Berenson

Although not well known outside Wall Street, Freddie Mac and its corporate cousin, Fannie Mae, are two of the world's largest financial institutions and play a crucial role in the housing market. -Alex Berenson

Upon graduation, believe it or not, I had no job. I had no interviews. I had no prospects. I had no worries. What I did have, I had passion. I had enormous passion. I had passion for financial markets. I had fallen in love with financial markets. -Gary Cohn

I loved doing 'Teachers.' I don't know if it's set me on a road, but it certainly got me out of financial penury for two years. But as much as I love it – and it's a huge sacrifice – as much as I love it, I'm in acting because I'm searching to do lots of different things. -Raquel Cassidy

As Congress debates overhauling the nation's health care system, it should not authorize a reform plan that would further our financial woes. We must avoid creating an unsustainable government program. There is no question that reform is needed, but health care can be made more affordable without massive and expensive new bureaucracies. -Erik Paulsen

In 2010 and 2012, I won the Democratic nomination in the 22nd Congressional District on the program 'Save NASA Impeach Obama,' without any organizational or financial backing from the party. -Kesha Rogers

Go out and interview people to find a partner whom you can trust. Find somebody who subscribes to the same view that you do. I'm happy to tell you that I practice what I preach. I would have never thought I'd end up in financial services. I'm happy to tell you that my debt is retired. That happened because I got a good financial adviser. -Lisa Caputo

Citigroup has the opportunity to be the largest financial institution and to serve us well. What we decide to do is not what everybody else does. Other companies sponsor women's events and put a woman's face in advertising. This is financial services wrapped in pink. -Lisa Caputo

Reducing debt through budgetary consolidation is essential to restoring Europe's financial health. -Victor Ponta

It's obvious that Pemex doesn't have the financial capacity to be in every single front of energy generation. -Enrique Pena Nieto

Union leaders argue that pension shortfalls account for a proportionally tiny portion of governments' financial problems, and by all accounts, there are plenty of parties to blame for the growth in payrolls and obligations. -Charles Duhigg

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac buy mortgages from banks and other lenders, providing those financial institutions with capital to make new loans. -Charles Duhigg

If Freddie Mac is unable to raise capital, it could spark a political and financial crisis. -Charles Duhigg

Some financial advisers say anyone who may move in less than seven years should not take out a reverse mortgage. -Charles Duhigg

Massachusetts has prohibited most financial advisers from using titles like 'certified senior adviser,' and some of the largest insurers, including MetLife and Genworth Financial, have similar rules. -Charles Duhigg

I was not proficient in Latin and so was not able to go to Oxford or Cambridge. However, I did enter the first-rate chemistry honours program at the University of Manchester in 1950, where the professors were E.R.H. Jones and M.G. Evans, and graduated in 1953, with the financial support of a Blackpool Education Committee Scholarship. -Michael Smith

A show can be artistically successful; a show can be financially successful; a show can be successful by the transformative experience the audience is having; a show can be successful from the point of view of what is experienced by the cast and the company on a daily basis. -David Binder

Favouring employment versus the financial markets is a decent policy; certainly not beneficial for the currency or the gilt market, but beneficial for the people. -Bill Gross

From a completely financial standpoint, digital is starting to crack as far as an independent filmmaker's access to getting your story out there – Amazon, iTunes, all of those. It makes the prospect of doing it yourself – not easy by any means – but possible, maybe for the first time. -Shane Carruth

Bill Clinton, talking about the need to financially empower wives and mothers in regressive countries, once remarked that women have 'the responsibility gene.' No one has that gene more markedly than his wife. -Tina Brown

Business requires understanding financial matters, but management is different from running the financial aspects of the business – it requires understanding complex systems, how they operate, the nature of organisations, what happens when people interact in groups and how to motivate and guide people. -Rosabeth Moss Kanter

We want to show how technology can be applied to fix our problems. We need to celebrate not just success but to celebrate people who make a difference. It starts with people who do things for love, with no expectation of return. Some of that turns into enormous financial success, and then some of it goes back into doing it for love. -Tim O'Reilly

I loved Internet businesses, having built and sold one. And I loved the financial business, despite the fact that it was almost all a scam. -James Altucher

Don't stay at the job for safe salary increases over time. That will never get you where you want – freedom from financial worry. Only free time, imagination, creativity, and an ability to disappear will help you deliver value that nobody ever delivered before in the history of mankind. -James Altucher

The first rule of personal finance is that it's not personal and it's not financial. It's about your ability to make ten changes and not get too depressed over it. -James Altucher

The prevailing – and foolish – attitude is that a good manager can be a good manager anywhere, with no special knowledge of the production process he's managing. A man with a financial background may know nothing about manufacturing shoes or cars, but he's put in charge anyway. -W. Edwards Deming

It's sort of good to see your vocation as a daily task and have fairly modest expectations for financial or reward in other coin – glory, love, whatever. -John Updike

I started out in public service in 1998 after the Asian financial crisis of '97. -Benigno Aquino III

Our economy is increasingly dependent on the success and integrity of the financial markets. -Michael Douglas

Those who perpetrate fraud against our financial institutions will be met with the full force of law enforcement. -Loretta Lynch

Part of Obamacare eliminated the private sector financial market that engages in giving college student loans. I mean, now the federal government has taken over college student loans, so I sit back and strategically look at this and say this just cannot be happening. -Allen West

Most everything I do on a creative level is beyond the fame and money. I sort of work as an actor… and take care of my family and mouths to feed and all of that. I don't really care about fame, but our business means money sometimes and financial success, which I can pass on to my family. -Corbin Bernsen

I do believe women have different ways of taking risks, of ruminating a bit more before they jump to conclusions. And I think that as a result, particularly on the, on, you know, on the trading floor, in the financial markets in general, the approach would be different. -Christine Lagarde

Gender-dominated environments are not good… particularly in the financial sector where there are too few women. In gender-dominated environments, men have a tendency to… show how hairy chested they are, compared with the man who's sitting next to them. I honestly think that there should never be too much testosterone in one room. -Christine Lagarde

I'm of those who believe that excesses in all matters are not a good idea, whether it's formation of bubbles, whether it's excess in the financial market, whether it's excess of inequality, it has to be watched, it has to be measured, and it has to be anticipated in terms of consequences. -Christine Lagarde

Free enterprise cannot only make us better off financially, it can make us better people. -Mitt Romney

Today, even small entities that trade complex instruments or are granted sufficient leverage can threaten the global financial system. -Paul Singer

Creating a regulatory system that reflects the modern-day realities of financial markets is not as difficult as it may appear. -Paul Singer

Compared to developed countries, or even to some major emerging countries, burdened by aging populations, financial crises, widening budget deficits, faltering faith in politics and growing social demands, Africa has become the world's last 'New Frontier:' a kind of 'it-continent.' -Mo Ibrahim

I am proud of Edinburgh's status as a financial centre, but where is it on the index of global financial centres? Sixty-fourth. Below Hamilton, Casablanca and Mauritius. London, by contrast, is second only to New York. That's a link worth keeping. -Rory Bremner

The United States are ruled by a financial, media-centered, military-industrial apparatus. Behind Obama's grin, he orders bombings. He just displays a different image than Bush. That's how he expands U.S. global domination. -Nicolas Maduro

Ours is a world which feels so unsettled and dangerous in large ways, whether it's terrorism or global financial meltdown or climate change – huge things that affect us deeply, and yet things about which we can do, individually, very little. -Sarah Waters

I never looked at my future as comedy. Even at Second City, I always thought of it as acting. I knew I was going to be an actor financially, emotionally, egotistically. -Scott Adsit

I've known the panic of financial struggle. I didn't grow up with money at all, and my family has certainly known the panic of, 'Oh, gosh, where's the next bit of money coming from?' -Cate Blanchett

Establishing the rights for gay people to be married would cost the Australian government nothing financially and would gain for you worldwide respect from people like us and, of course, would change lives enormously – the lives of gay people and of their friends and of their families and therefore of Australia as a whole. -Ian Mckellen

I have an accountant, obviously, because I'm self employed, and I use an independent financial adviser. I trust my accountant because we have worked together for a long time now. -Richard C. Armitage

There's a belief in some cultures that if a person experiences good fortune in financial terms and does not share the good fortune, when that person becomes ill with a mysterious fever and dies, people tend to say: 'Aha! It was because he didn't share. It was the spirits who brought him down.' -David Quammen

You have kids growing up in some of the worst circumstances financially, living in some of the worst ghettos, and they succeed. They succeed because an adult figure, typically a mother, maybe a grandmother, nourishes the kid, supports the kid, protects the kid, encourages the kid to succeed. It's as if the environment never happened. -James Heckman

I've been able to help my family financially since making my first hit record. I bought my parents a house. My husband and I have a property in Portugal and one in Mumbles, Wales, and my family are always coming out to visit us. It has been fantastic to have such a successful career and to have been able to help everyone. -Bonnie Tyler

When you suddenly become successful, the change is enormous, both financially and in terms of recognition and the way people treat you. I found that hard to deal with. I got very guilty about it, and I think I put up obstacles to prevent myself enjoying it. -James Nesbitt

In response to the drop in wealth suffered as a consequence of the 2008 financial crisis, homeowners and firms did attempt to increase savings in financial assets by reducing expenditure on durables. -Dale T. Mortensen

Intuit's mission, values, and culture of innovation set us apart as a great place to work. Our 8,000 employees are innovators and entrepreneurs that are inspired by the important work they do that is delighting customers and improving the financial lives of millions of people. -Brad D. Smith

We are out-of-the-gates strong in fiscal 2015. We grew revenue 8% in the first quarter and exceeded our QuickBooks Online subscriber and our company financial targets. -Brad D. Smith

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

At Mint, we developed five pending patents on our technology, ranging from categorization to the Ways to Save system that calculates how much a new financial product would save a user given their present financial situation. -Aaron Patzer

When Lincoln ran into trouble during the Civil War, he got new generals. He brought in Grant. I hope that President Obama will bring in some new generals on the financial front. -Marcy Kaptur

Because there are little to no consequences for conducting cyberattacks, criminals and nation-states are becoming bolder in their threats and behavior. Russia, China, North Korea and Iran are increasingly hacking into U.S. companies and government networks for espionage purposes or financial gain. -Michael McCaul

In financial terms, my sense is that the distribution of wealth, unequal as it is, is self-perpetuating, and, especially in a linked and accelerating world, the rich get ever more quickly richer while the poor get ever more speedily poorer. -Pico Iyer

We have got to cut the spending. We have got to fix Medicare and Social Security. And actually, if we don't cut spending, this country is already broke. We are going off the financial cliff: the big cliff that is going to cause a total economic collapse of America. -Paul Broun

I'm very concerned about the nuclear weapons development for Iran and the destabilizing influence it has and they have in that part of the world. And I strongly endorse continued pressure, diplomatically, financially, economically. -Michael Mullen

We are still behaving as if a worker really doesn't have a family because the work pattern really was meant for men who really were the financial support but weren't looking after their families. We need to change this, and we can easily do that. -Gloria Steinem

There's been such a sense that there's one set of rules for trillion-dollar financial institutions and a different set for all the rest of us. It's so pervasive that it's not even hidden. -Elizabeth Warren

The 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act will reestablish a wall between commercial and investment banking, make our financial system more stable and secure, and protect American families. -Elizabeth Warren

If large financial institutions can break the law and accumulate million in profits – and, if they get caught, settle by paying out of those profits – they do not have much incentive to follow the law. -Elizabeth Warren

Who is Antonio Weiss? He's the head of global investment banking for the financial giant Lazard. -Elizabeth Warren

I have voted against only one of President Obama's nominees: Michael Froman, a Citigroup alumnus who is currently storming the halls of Congress as U.S. Trade Representative pushing trade deals that threaten to undermine financial regulation, workers' rights, and environmental protections. -Elizabeth Warren

There is one thing Anthony Weiner and I agree on: there are a lot of smart, hard-working people in the financial industry. -Elizabeth Warren

Families rely on financial services more than ever, but those who need them most – who struggle to make ends meet – too often must contend with sky-high interest rates and tricks and traps buried in the fine print of their loan products. -Elizabeth Warren

People who graduate are more resilient financially, and they weather economic downturns better than people who don't graduate. And, throughout their lives, people who graduate are more likely to be economically secure, more likely to be healthy, and more likely to live longer. Face it: A college degree puts a lot in your corner. -Elizabeth Warren

Some economists estimate that for every family that goes bankrupt, there are about 15 more who are in the same amount of financial trouble and would profit from bankruptcy but just haven't filed. -Elizabeth Warren

Bankruptcy is about financial death and financial rebirth. Bankruptcy is the great American story rewritten. We're a nation of debtors. -Elizabeth Warren
