Wednesday Wisdom

I lull you with pretty posy pictures - spring is in the air. I have not made it out to the arboretum yet. These are some past spring photos.

With Mr. Toad's Wild Ride on Wall Street these days, let's look at some quotes about money.
There's wisdom to be had somewhere here.

Money is like muck, not good except it be spread - Francis Bacon  1625

Money, it turned out, was exactly like sex, you thought of nothing else if you didn't have, and thought of other things if you did.   James Baldwin 1961

Show me the money!   Cameron Crowe, Jerry Maguire 1997 spoken by Cuba Gooding Jr.

"Money isn't everything" according to those who have it - Malcom Forbes 1978

Money doesn't talk, it swears - Bob Dylan from It's Alright, Ma (I'm only bleeding)  song 1965

and now I'm off to work to earn some cold hard cash (gotta keep Ray in the lap of luxury living!)


  1. That's a lot of tulips.
    Money is means to an end. And more money is better than no money.

    1. oh believe me I like money and spending money.

  2. Lovely photo's Joanne, thanks for brightening this world.


  3. Yep, only people who have it say it isn't everything.

    1. it's even easier to be sad and miserable with more money

  4. Beautiful photos! Happy Spring to you!
