Quote of the Day, 2:

"Lack of money is the root of all evil."
-- George Bernard Shaw.

I like this one because it strikes right back at all those people who say "Money doesn't buy you happiness" or similar quotes. My father-in-law -- a person with money -- said that to us once: Money can't make you happy, he said.

Maybe it can't, but it can remove sources of unhappiness. There is no life that would not be better if it had more money, and there is no problem so terrible that the infusion of a lot of cash wouldn't make that problem a little more bearable.
