Above all, you want to create something you're proud of. This has always been my philosophy of business. I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive, then I believe you are better off not doing it.


Richard Branson

Banks are an almost irresistible attraction for that element of our society which seeks unearned money.

Class has nothing to do with money and vice versa.

Class, Money

Lisa Vanderpump

For a successful entrepreneur it can mean extreme wealth. But with extreme wealth comes extreme responsibility. And the responsibility for me is to invest in creating new businesses, create jobs, employ people, and to put money aside to tackle issues where we can make a difference.

I actually live in a house now and mow the lawn and all that stuff, and it's because I've made some money doing what I do. But I still like the free gypsy style of life, that's why I go on tour.

JJ Cale

I came from nothing but I always knew I'd make money. I went to Monte Carlo with friends when I was 19. I saw all those rich people and I swore to myself that one day I'd be one of them.


James Herbert

I mean, money people are usually quite brisk, but mine aren't, and they keep on giving me spaces so that I've been able to go on and do plays and films.

Jeremy Brett

I think that lawyers are terrible at admitting that they're wrong. And not just admitting it; also realizing it. Most lawyers are very successful, and they think that because they're making money and people think well of them, they must be doing everything right.

Lawyers, Money

Alan Dershowitz

If I could actually survive in a foreign country with no money, taking care of myself, I couldn't be crazy.


Michelle Shocked

If I, as so many other colleagues, would have worked for the sake of money, I could have become a millionaire. But money was of no importance to me. I worked on a film for years until I thought it artistically perfected. I was my own boss, nobody could tell me what to do. Had I ever had the impression that my freedom as a creative artist would be limited, I would have gone abroad.

Leni Riefenstahl

In the early 1960's there was no money to be made from it. If you posed for an O'Neill wetsuit advertisement, you'd get a free wetsuit... maybe. Had there been an opportunity to make a living surfing, I probably would have never made movies.

Money, Wetsuit, Movies

Bruce Brown

Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.

Innovation, Money

Steve Jobs

It's great to hear that we've offered some light in people's lives when they feel despair. Beyond that, the rest of it is pretty meaningless - money, adulation and fame will never make anyone happy in my experience. The real achievement is to feel like you've made a difference for your fellow man.

Money, Adulation, Fame

Tom Chaplin

It's lovely to have money to give away - that's the bonus of winning the Nobel.

Nobel, Money

Doris Lessing

Making money is not gonna change anything about what I am, except I won't answer the door.
