I wanted to share some quotes about money and abundance - some words of wisdom that would inspire you as well as share some wisdom from some thought leaders on this subject.
So rather than spend hours going through all my books, I decided it would be quicker to start with a search online.
But I was in for a surprise! When I entered the search term ‘quotes about money’ everything that came up was all around ‘money isn’t important’, 'if you aspire to having money you must be a shallow person’, ‘too much money will cause problems’ and more along the same lines.
With mass consciousness like that it's no wonder we have such a hard time being comfortable with money.
So then I was even more determined to find some wonderful quotes from people who know about money and the good that it can do so that I could share them with you….

I prefer to talk about thriving though, not merely surviving - and so money and abundance becomes something that flows to you out of being who you truly are, and doing what it is your soul is calling you to do.
So these quotes about money and abundance distill great ideas into a sentence or two, allowing you to tap into some wonderful information quickly, when you don't have time to read a whole book on the subject.
These words are written by people who know all about money and abundance, and how it will flow to you as long as you respect it, care for it and don't see it as the ultimate goal.
Choose your favourite ones and pin them up somewhere, to remind yourself of the fact that money and abundance are not hard to come by - in fact it's your birthright to thrive.
So read some of the quotes below, and you'll realise that you too can live in the flow and thrive, just the same as anyone else.
