My board of wisdom, my favorites words of wisdom that keep me going each day and re-accessing my self. What sort of person am I? What sort of person would I like to be? How can I be better? Kinder? Wiser?

These quotes gave me strength years ago when I embarked on my journey and I am sharing them with you. So I thought, since they were very useful to me – I hope they will be useful to you as well and perhaps give you the wisdom to go on about your personal finances.

1. The Holy Bible by God

“Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.”

Psalm 1:1-3 NLT

Why I Like it?

A beautiful verse.

While this verse does not talk about money per-se, but I believe it captures the essence of all there is. There is so much to be learned from the Bible – it is a power house of wisdom not just stories.

It is a clear indication of where we should all be going for our financial counsel.

2. Henry Ford

“If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability”. 

Henry Ford

Why I like it?

At the university we learnt a lot about Henry Ford and his business philosophies on production. He is the founder of Ford Motor Company. This quote may well have embodied all that Henry Ford learned through his experience as an industrialist and all the knowledge he had amassed as a result.  A man who spent years improving his craft and took risks to succeed, to him perhaps the only thing he could bank on was his knowledge, experience and ability.

3. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Many people take no care of their money till they come nearly to the end of it, and others do just the same with their time”.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Why I Like it?

Probably I might say, I like the man more, he is German writer and statesman with an interesting perspective on things.

For instance he famously said this about the society at his time that “We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe” or “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it”.

I just love the way his mind worked.

4. Norman Vincent Peale

“Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that”.

Norman Vincent Peale

Why I like it?

Norman V. Peale lived on the positive side of life something that a lot of people do not have. So when I want to do something but I find myself lacking in one way or another, I always remember this quote. Because in life, there are battles we must face but to win these battles we must win the battle over the mind first.

5. P.T Barnum

“Money is good for nothing unless you know the value of it by experience”.

P.T Barnum

Why I like it?

There is an old adage that money is entrusted to those who take care of it. Remember the Parable of the Three Servants in Matthew 25:14-30 – Please read it if you have not. Amazing lessons can be learned from this. 

Jack Ma, CEO of Alibaba is someone I truly look up to. He famously once said when asked what money meant to him as wealthy person that “I believe when you have $1 million, that’s your money – when you have $20 million, you start to have a problem. When you have $1 billion, that’s not your money, that’s the trust society gave you. They believe you can manage the money better than the government and others.

I hope you have learned something.
