Income quotes by Carol Bellamy
#1. The real solution is to improve the incomes of the poor and provide their children with decent education. #Quote by Carol Bellamy
Income quotes by Rose Wilder Lane
#2. I am too sick to work and haven't money enough to last 2 months and pay income tax. I want to keep going but do not see quite how, and there is no alternative - rather than justify my mother's 25-year dread of my "coming back on her, sick", I must kill myself. If she has to pay funeral costs, at least she will cut them to the bone and I will not be here to endure her martyrdom and prolong it by living. #Quote by Rose Wilder Lane
Income quotes by Adel Al-Jubeir
#3. We support any deal that denies Iran nuclear weapons, that has a continuous and robust inspection mechanism and that has snap-back provisions in case Iran violates the agreement. Our concern is that Iran will use the income it receives as a result of the lifting of the nuclear sanctions in order to fund its nefarious activities in the region. #Quote by Adel Al-Jubeir
Income quotes by Jarod Kintz
#4. Bestseller doesn't necessarily mean good writer. I think it takes 10,000 book sales to make the bestseller's list, and at about 9 dollars a pop for my book, if I had an extra $90,000 dollars of disposable income, I'd be a bestseller tomorrow. But would I be a better writer? No, I'd be a poorer writer - about $75,000 dollars poorer. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Income quotes by Bernie Sanders
#5. I will do my best to transform our trade policy and take on these corporations who want to invest in low-income countries around the world rather than in the United States of America. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Income quotes by Timothy Geithner
#6. The world is likely to view any temporary extension of the income tax cuts for the top two percent as a prelude to a long-term or permanent extension, and that would hurt economic recovery as well by undermining confidence that we're prepared to make a commitment today to bring down our future deficits. #Quote by Timothy Geithner
Income quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#7. If Thomas Jefferson thought taxation without representation was bad, he should see how it is with representation. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Income quotes by Rex E. Lee
#8. I have no criticism of the basic concept of irrefutable authority. Properly employed, it is the easiest, the surest, and the proper way to resolve conflicts. There is an omnipresent temptation, however, to rely on such authority regardless of its applicability; and I know of no better examples than the scriptures and the Constitution.

We find it easy to lapse into the expansive notion that the Constitution, like the gospel, embraces all truth and that it protects and guarantees all that is right, equitable, and just. From that grand premise it is only a short and comfortable leap to the proposition that the Constitution embraces my particular notion of what is right, equitable, and just. The Constitution lends itself to this kind of use because of its breadth.

Issues such as foreign aid, fluoridation of water, public versus private education, progressive income tax, to which political party I should belong and which candidate I should support; questions about economic development and environmental quality control; questions about the power of labor unions and the influence of big business in government--all these are issues of great importance. But these questions cannot and ought not to be resolved by simply resorting to irrefutable authority. Neither the Constitution nor the scriptures contain answers to these questions, and under the grand plan of eternal progress it is our responsibility to develop our own skills by working out our own answers throug #Quote by Rex E. Lee
Income quotes by Tom Lehrer
#9. On my income tax 1040 it says 'Check this box if you are blind.' I wanted to put a check mark about three inches away. #Quote by Tom Lehrer
Income quotes by Adam McKay
#10. Everything in America is so stratified by class now. We have the 93rd level of income inequality in the world. You're already seeing highway lanes that are for pay and ones that aren't. #Quote by Adam McKay
Income quotes by Andrew Jackson
#11. We are beginning a new era in our government. I cannot too strongly urge the necessity of a rigid economy and an inflexible determination not to enlarge the income beyond the real necessities of the government. #Quote by Andrew Jackson
Income quotes by Mark Sanford
#12. I think it would be nearly impossible to find someone who has contributed more to South Carolina than Carroll Campbell. His efforts to transform South Carolina's economy and raise our state's income levels are still paying dividends today. #Quote by Mark Sanford
Income quotes by Chelsea Clinton
#13. What's important to recognize is that in the U.S. today, tens of millions of kids start life on a uneven playing field. Imagine having to try to run a race if you started ten yards behind everyone else, hadn't eaten breakfast that morning, or maybe even dinner the night before, had slept in your third homeless shelter that month and didn't have shoes that fit right. Catching up would be really, really hard. With almost 32 million American kids living in low-income families, that means four out of ten runners are starting far back. #Quote by Chelsea Clinton
Income quotes by Cliff Stearns
#14. Since 1994, unemployment rates are lower. Median household income is higher. A greater percentage of Americans are graduating from college. Home ownership rates are higher. And the violent crime rate has decreased. #Quote by Cliff Stearns
Income quotes by Mark Shields
#15. The economy of the United States gross domestic product doubled from 1996 to 2015, doubled, more than, $8.8 trillion to $17.1 trillion. And the median household income went down. #Quote by Mark Shields
Income quotes by Robin Roberts
#16. When my mother makes out her income tax return every year, under occupation she writes, eroding my daughter's self-esteem. #Quote by Robin Roberts
Income quotes by PIRO JM
#17. What do you expect, lose everything or go outside to put into practice your ability to generate income to support your family? I am coming to you! #Quote by PIRO JM
Income quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#18. When the Constitution declares that 'all men are created equal,' it is not referring to intelligence, good looks, good humor, height, weight, or income. It is talking about certain rights, 'inalienable', in that they cannot be taken away. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Income quotes by Mark Driscoll
#19. But birth control can also be compelled by sinful motivations. These can include putting lesser priorities like career above higher priorities like family or greedily wanting to make as much income as possible to the exclusion of everything else, and not incur the costs of child raising; being selfish and not wanting to have to care for a child; or immaturely not wanting to take on the responsibility that good parenting requires. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Income quotes by Bob Hawke
#20. While society cannot provide employment for its members, the production/work/income nexus has to be abandoned as a justification for our present parsimony to the unemployed. An assumption cannot be used to justify making second-class citizens of those who are unfortunate enough to constitute living proof of the inaccuracy of that assumption. #Quote by Bob Hawke
Income quotes by Robert Reich
#21. I'm 40 years old. What I have seen my whole life is widening income inequality. #Quote by Robert Reich
Income quotes by Richard Rothstein
#22. Zoning thus had two faces. One face, developed in part to evade a prohibition on racially explicit zoning, attempted to keep African Americans out of white neighborhoods by making it difficult for lower-income families, large numbers of whom were African Americans, to live in expensive white neighborhoods. The other attempted to protect white neighborhoods from deterioration by ensuring that few industrial or environmentally unsafe businesses could locate in them. Prohibited in this fashion, polluting industry had no option but to locate near African American residences. The first contributed to creation of exclusive white suburbs, the second to creation of urban African American slums. #Quote by Richard Rothstein
Income quotes by George William Curtis
#23. Anger is an expensive luxury in which only men of certain income can indulge. #Quote by George William Curtis
Income quotes by Frank Bruno
#24. I still get invitations from all over Europe to speak at dinners, and it's an honour that promoters and charities can use me to create income. #Quote by Frank Bruno
Income quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#25. When President Obama speaks about raising taxes on the rich, he speaks about high-income employees and small business owners, not entrepreneurs who build big businesses. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Income quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#26. In addition, if a person makes the error of identifying self with his work (rather than with the internal virtues that make the work possible), if self-esteem is tied primarily to accomplishments, success, income, or being a good family provider, the danger is that economic circumstances beyond the individual's control may lead to the failure of the business or the loss of a job, flinging him into depression or acute demoralization. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Income quotes by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
#27. Even though I had a good income from my lectures, no one would give me a loan. The insanity almost drove me to sympathize with the feminist movement. #Quote by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
Income quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#28. I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective
the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Income quotes by Honeya
#29. Do not cut down on your expenses, Increase your income! #Quote by Honeya
Income quotes by Ha-Joon Chang
#30. The top 10 per cent of the US population appropriated 91 per cent of income growth between 1989 and 2006, while the top 1 per cent took 59 per cent. #Quote by Ha-Joon Chang
Income quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#31. The scholars who research happiness suggest that more money stops making people happier at a family income of around seventy-five thousand dollars a year. After that, what economists call "diminishing marginal returns" sets in. If your family makes seventy-five thousand and your neighbor makes a hundred thousand, that extra twenty-five thousand a year means that your neighbor can drive a nicer car and go out to eat slightly more often. But it doesn't make your neighbor happier than you, or better equipped to do the thousands of small and large things that make for being a good parent. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Income quotes by Dick Morris
#32. The most pernicious of his [Obama] proposals will be the massive Make Work Pay refundable tax credit. Dressed up as a tax cut, it will be a national welfare program, guaranteeing a majority of American households an annual check to 'refund' taxes they never paid. And it will eliminate the need for about 20% of American households to pay income taxes, lifting the proportion that need not do so to a majority of the voting population. #Quote by Dick Morris
Income quotes by Michael Dahlen
#33. During the twentieth century, however, the size, scope, and power of government exploded. Total government spending increased from 6.73 percent of GDP in 1906 to 37.79 percent of GDP in 2014.[2] The dollar has lost more than 95 percent of its value due to the inflationary policies of the Federal Reserve. Top marginal income tax rates have been as high as 94 percent. Entitlement programs now constitute more than 60 percent of the federal budget. And businesses are hog-tied by more than 175,000 pages of red tape in the Code of Federal Regulations. What #Quote by Michael Dahlen
Income quotes by Paul Graham
#34. I'd like to propose an alternative idea: that in a modern society, increasing variation in income is a sign of health. Technology seems to increase the variation in productivity at faster than linear rates. If we don't see corresponding variation in income, there are three possible explanations: (a) that technical innovation has stopped, (b) that the people who would create the most wealth aren't doing it, or (c) that they aren't getting paid for it. #Quote by Paul Graham
Income quotes by William F. Buckley, Jr.
#35. A capitalist is someone who derives a substantial share of his income from his equity in producing companies. On this scale the figures are discouraging. Approximately ninety percent of the capital of this country is owned by five or less percent of the American people. #Quote by William F. Buckley, Jr.
Income quotes by Simon Kuper
#36. The things we once thought of as luxuries soon become necessities (although, by the same token, our sense of well-being would quickly adapt to losing half our income). What we care about is not our absolute wealth but our rung on the ladder. Ruut Veenhoven, a leading researcher of happiness, says, "When we have overtaken the Joneses, our reference drifts upward to the Smiths, and we feel unhappy again. #Quote by Simon Kuper
Income quotes by Takashi Murakami
#37. My parents came from the Kyushu Island in the Southern part of Japan to find work in Tokyo. So we could only afford to live downtown, in a low-income area. It was just by the river, and whenever a typhoon came around, we were under water up to, like, here. That's the kind of place we lived in. #Quote by Takashi Murakami
Income quotes by Stephen F. Lynch
#38. Trade reform has also been linked to increased income disparity as skilled workers have captured more benefits from globalization than their unskilled counterparts. #Quote by Stephen F. Lynch
Income quotes by Paul Craig Roberts
#39. The tax that was supposed to soak the rich has instead soaked America. The beneficiary of the income tax has not been the poor, but big government. The income tax has given us a government bureaucracy that outnumbers the manufacturing work force. It has created welfare dependencies that have entrapped millions of Americans in an underclass that is forced to live a sordid existence of trading votes for government handouts. #Quote by Paul Craig Roberts
Income quotes by Matthew S. McCormick
#40. 1. Myth: Without God, life has no meaning.

There are 1.2 billion Chinese who have no predominant religion, and 1 billion people in India who are predominantly Hindu. And 65% of Japan's 127 million people claim to be non-believers. It is laughable to suggest that none of these billions of people are leading meaningful lives.

2. Myth: Prayer works.

Studies have now shown that inter-cessionary prayer has no effect whatsoever of the health or well-being of the subject.

3. Myth: Atheists are immoral.

There are hundreds of millions of non-believers on the planet living normal, decent, moral lives. They love their children, care about others, obey laws, and try to keep from doing harm to others just like everyone else. In fact, in predominantly non-believing countries such as in northern Europe, measures of societal health such as life expectancy at birth, adult literacy, per capita income, education, homicide, suicide, gender equality, and political coercion are better than they are in believing societies.

4. Myth: Belief in God is compatible with science.

In the past, every supernatural or paranormal explanation of phenomena that humans believed turned out to be mistaken; science has always found a physical explanation that revealed that the supernatural view was a myth. Modern organisms evolved from lower life forms, they weren't created 6,000 years ago in the finished state. Fever is not caused by de #Quote by Matthew S. McCormick
Income quotes by Julian Simon
#41. Greater consumption due to increase in population and growth of income heightens scarcity and induces price run-ups. A higher price represents an opportunity that leads inventors and businesspeople to seek new ways to satisfy the shortages. Some fail, at cost to themselves. A few succeed, and the final result is that we end up better off than if the original shortage problems had never arisen. That is, we need our problems, though this does not imply that we should purposely create additional problems for ourselves. #Quote by Julian Simon
Income quotes by Mark Zandi
#42. Potential home buyers have a two-step decision process. First, they determine whether they can afford to make a purchase - does their income safely cover their mortgage payment? Then they determine whether owning is a better financial choice than renting - are the costs of owning a home lower than the cost of renting it? #Quote by Mark Zandi
Income quotes by Rashmi Bansal
#43. The very act of becoming an entrepreneur is contrarian to middle class values, study hard, get a good job, be happy with secure income and steady salary. #Quote by Rashmi Bansal
Income quotes by Carl Paladino
#44. We are angry about paying the highest income taxes and property taxes in the nation and getting less and less for it. We are angry about our incompetent, dysfunctional government that pays no attention to the desires of the people. We are angry about the cesspool of corruption and conflicts of interests and self-dealing that is Albany. #Quote by Carl Paladino
Income quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#45. As a broad generalization, liberals see income as a public good that is distributed, like crayons in a kindergarten class. If so-and-so didn't get his or her fair share of income, it's because someone or something - government, the system - didn't distribute income properly. To the extent conservatives see income inequality as a problem, it is as an indication of more concrete problems. If the poor and middle class are falling behind the wealthy, it might be a sign of declining or stagnating wages or lackluster job creation. In other words, liberals tend to see income inequality as the disease, and conservatives tend to see it as a symptom. #Quote by Jonah Goldberg
Income quotes by James Mirrlees
#46. I think, in effect, in most of the European countries, the total marginal tax rate is over 50 percent; that's to say, add on other taxes like VAT to the income tax. #Quote by James Mirrlees
Income quotes by Jeffrey D. Sachs
#47. it is the provision of public services, notably the universal access to affordable day care, even more than income support to families, that is key to the elimination of poverty among families with children. Sweden's public services, of uniformly high quality, ensure a decent start for all children. Sweden #Quote by Jeffrey D. Sachs
Income quotes by Norman Borlaug
#48. I now say that the world has the technology - either available or well advanced in the research pipeline - to feed on a sustainable basis a population of 10 billion people. The more pertinent question today is whether farmers and ranchers will be permitted to use this new technology? While the affluent nations can certainly afford to adopt ultra low-risk positions, and pay more for food produced by the so-called "organic" methods, the one billion chronically undernourished people of the low income, food-deficit nations cannot. #Quote by Norman Borlaug
Income quotes by Charles Bukowski
#49. fuck


she pulled her dress off
over her head
and I saw the panties
indented somewhat into the
crotch.

it's only human.
now we've got to do it.
I've got to do it
after all that bluff.
it's like a party--
two trapped
idiots.

under the sheets
after I have snapped
off the light
her panties are still
on. she expects an
opening performance.
I can't blame her. but
wonder why she's here with
me? where are the other
guys? how can you be
lucky? having someone the
others have abandoned?

we didn't have to do it
yet we had to do it.
it was something like
establishing new credibility
with the income tax
man. I get the panties
off. I decide not to tongue her. even then
I'm thinking about
after it's over.

we'll sleep together
tonight
trying to fit ourselves
inside the wallpaper.

I try, fail,
notice the hair on her
head
mostly notice the hair
on her
head
and a glimpse of
nostrils
piglike

I try it again. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Income quotes by Leon Panetta
#50. If we don't do something to simplify the tax system, we're going to end up with a national police force of internal revenue agents. #Quote by Leon Panetta
Income quotes by Sam Ewing
#51. I try to figure my adjusted gross income, but no matter how I figure it, it's still gross. #Quote by Sam Ewing
Income quotes by Bernie Sanders
#52. In 2008, Goldman Sachs only paid 1.1 percent of its income in taxes even though it earned a profit of $2.3 billion and received an almost $800 billion from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury Department. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Income quotes by George W. Bush
#53. And what's interesting, and I don't think a lot of Americans understand this fact, is that, one, most new jobs are created by small businesses; two, most small businesses pay tax at the individual income tax, or many small businesses pay tax there. #Quote by George W. Bush
Income quotes by Marion Nestle
#54. At the moment, world hunger and starvation have everything to do with politics. Political conflicts, insufficient responses to natural disasters, corrupt political institutions, and inequalities in income and education constitute what public health practitioners call the 'root' causes of hunger and malnutrition. #Quote by Marion Nestle
Income quotes by John F. Kennedy
#55. In those countries where income taxes are lower than in the United States, the ability to defer the payment of U.S. tax by retaining income in the subsidiary companies provides a tax advantage for companies operating through overseas subsidiaries that is not available to companies operating solely in the United States. Many American investors properly made use of this deferral in the conduct of their foreign investment. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Income quotes by Seth Meyers
#56. The first time I had disposable income, the two things I cared most about were a television and a couch. #Quote by Seth Meyers
Income quotes by Judith C. Waller
#57. Economic experts tell us that the women of America spend 80 per cent of the national income, and the largest part of this expenditure is made for the necessities and the small luxuries of life. #Quote by Judith C. Waller
Income quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#58. I have thoroughly tried school-keeping, and found that my expenses were in proportion, or rather out of proportion, to my income,for I was obliged to dress and train, not to say think and believe, accordingly, and I lost my time into the bargain. As I did not teach for the good of my fellow-men, but simply for a livelihood, this was a failure. I have tried trade; but I found that it would take ten years to get under way in that, and that then I should probably be on my way to the devil. I was actually afraid that I might by that time be doing what is called a good business. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Income quotes by Ron Paul
#59. Income taxes are responsible for the transformation of the Federal government from one of limited powers into a vast leviathan whose tentacles reach into almost every aspect of American life. #Quote by Ron Paul
Income quotes by Thomas Sowell
#60. Lofty talk about 'social justice' or 'fairness' boils down to greatly expanded powers for politicians, since those pretty words have no concrete definition. They are a blank check for creating disparities in power that dwarf disparities in income - and are far more dangerous. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Income quotes by Faraaz Kazi
#61. Their hands are tied not by ropes but by the greed of the intermediaries that the system has generated, who eat up the farmer's income while it is on its way into his hands. #Quote by Faraaz Kazi
Income quotes by Dee Hock
#62. It is not making better people of others that management is about. It's about making a better person of self. Income, power, and titles have nothing to do with that. #Quote by Dee Hock
Income quotes by Robert B. Reich
#63. Look back over the last hundred years and you'll see the pattern. During periods when the very rich took home a much smaller proportion of total income - as in the Great Prosperity between 1947 and 1977 - the nation as a whole grew faster, and median wages surged. The basic bargain ensured that the pay of American workers coincided with their output. In effect, the vast middle class received an increasing share of the benefits of economic growth. We created that virtuous cycle in which an ever-growing middle class had the ability to consume more goods and services, which created more and better jobs, thereby stoking demand. The rising tide did in fact lift all boats. On the other hand, during periods when the very rich took home a larger proportion - as between 1918 and 1933, and in the Great Regression from 1981 to the present day - growth slowed, median wages stagnated, and we suffered giant downturns. #Quote by Robert B. Reich
Income quotes by Oscar Wilde
#64. It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Income quotes by Andrew Lloyd Webber
#65. Here's the truth. The proposed top rate of income tax is not 50 per cent. It is 50 per cent plus 1.5 per cent national insurance paid by employees plus 13.3 per cent paid by employers. That's not 50 per cent. Two years from now, Britain will have the highest tax rate on earned income of any developed country. #Quote by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Income quotes by Cynthia Sue Larson
#66. When my income exceeds my outgo, my upkeep will be downright easy. #Quote by Cynthia Sue Larson
Income quotes by Kimberly Giles
#67. You have probably worked your entire life to create a sense of identity around your job, your family, your hobbies, or your physical characteristics. But none of these is who you really are. You are not what you look like. You are not your family. You are not your job, income, or performance. You are not your current situation or the mistakes you have made. Mistakes are just locations on your journey; they have nothing to do with who you are, and neither does what you do or how successful you are.
You are bigger than all those things. You are much more than just a businessman or a mom or a student. You are a divine, irreplaceable, one-of-a-kind, amazing, loving, eternal being, and your value comes from that fact alone. You come from God, who is love, which to me would mean - you are love too. You have to be. And if you are love then nothing you do or don't do can change your value, because no matter what you do or how many mistakes you make, you are still YOU; you are still LOVE. You can't help it. You cannot be anything else. #Quote by Kimberly Giles
Income quotes by Robert D. Putnam
#68. The achievement gap between children from high income and low income families is roughly 30-40% larger among children born in 2001 than among those born 25 years ago. The class gap among students entering kindergarten was two to three times higher than the racial gap. #Quote by Robert D. Putnam
Income quotes by Amy Reed
#69. I've spent my life comparing myself to everyone around me. I've made it an art form. I've developed detailed systems to calculate where I stand, based on GPA, body mass index, fashion, popularity, family income, etc. Based on this criteria, I have always fared somewhere in the safe middle. #Quote by Amy Reed
Income quotes by Steve Forbes
#70. Start by scrapping the tax code. Don't fiddle with it. Junk it. Throw it out. Bury it. Replace it with a pro-growth, pro-family tax cut that lowers tax rates to 17% across the board and expands exemptions for individuals and children so that a family of four would pay no taxes on the first $36,000 of income. #Quote by Steve Forbes
Income quotes by Richard Neal
#71. The tax relief that this Congress has given now in terms of four tax cuts has overwhelmingly gone to the people at the very top of the income scale in America. #Quote by Richard Neal
Income quotes by T. Coleman Andrews
#72. The income tax is bad because it was conceived in class hatred, is an instrument of vengeance and plays right into the hands of the communists. It employs the vicious communist principle of taking from each according to his accumulation of the fruits of his labor and giving to others according to their needs, regardless of whether those needs are the result of indolence, or lack of pride, self-respect, personal dignity or other attributes of men. #Quote by T. Coleman Andrews
Income quotes by Robert E. Slavin
#73. The principal reason that districts within states often differ markedly in per-pupil expenditures is that school funding is almost always tied to property taxes, which are in turn a direct function of local wealth. Having school funding depend on local wealth creates a situation in which poor districts must tax themselves far more heavily than wealthy ones, yet still may not be able to generate adequate income. For example, Baltimore City is one of the poorest jurisdictions in Maryland, and the Baltimore City Public Schools have the lowest per-pupil instructional expenses of any of Maryland's 24 districts. Yet Baltimore's property tax rate is twice that of the next highest jurisdiction.(FN2) Before the funding equity decision in New Jersey, the impoverished East Orange district had one of the highest tax rates in the state, but spent only $3,000 per pupil, one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in the state.(FN3) A similar story could be told in almost any state in the U.S.(FN4) Funding formulas work systematically against children who happen to be located in high-poverty districts, but also reflect idiosyncratic local circumstances. For example, a factory closing can bankrupt a small school district. What sense does it make for children's education to suffer based on local accidents of geography or economics?
To my knowledge, the U.S. is the only nation to fund elementary and secondary education based on local wealth. Other developed countries either equalize funding #Quote by Robert E. Slavin
Income quotes by Carl Honore
#74. As it turns out, people who cut their work hours often take a smaller hit financially than they expect. That is because spending less time on the job means spending less money on the things that allow us to work: transport, parking, eating out, coffee, convenience food, childcare, laundry, retail therapy. A smaller income also translates into a smaller tax bill. In one Canadian study, some workers who took a pay cut in return for shorter hours actually ended up with more money in the bank at the end of the month. #Quote by Carl Honore
Income quotes by Dave Ramsey
#75. Your greatest asset is your paycheck. Disability insurance protects you and your family if you are unable to work by providing income which will help pay your bills and take care of your family. It's just as important as life insurance. #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Income quotes by Andy Weir
#76. Computer programming is pretty much guaranteed income. I'm good at it, and I like it. #Quote by Andy Weir
Income quotes by Greg Egan
#77. A recent survey of 2,000 male graduates of Harvard Business School
found that penis length & IQ were equally good predictors of annual
income.

Income quotes by Susan Davis
#80. Most of them benefit businesses, things like research and development tax credits. But people will also benefit, too, from things like - the earned income tax credit and the child tax credit have been made permanent. They predominantly help lower-income families. #Quote by Susan Davis
Income quotes by Joe Scarborough
#81. We're going to look awfully stupid if we give income tax relief to people who do not pay income taxes. #Quote by Joe Scarborough
Income quotes by Timothy Geithner
#82. The major economic policy challenges facing the nation today - pick your favorites among the usual suspects of low public and household savings, concerns about educational quality and achievement, high and rising income inequality, the large imbalances between our social insurance commitments and resources - are not about monetary policy. #Quote by Timothy Geithner
Income quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#83. The moment you make passive income and portfolio income a part of your life, your life will change. Those words will become flesh. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Income quotes by Michael J. Boskin
#84. New and expanded refundable tax credits would raise the fraction of taxpayers paying no income taxes to almost 50% from 38%. This is potentially the most pernicious feature of the president's budget, because it would cement a permanent voting majority with no stake in controlling the cost of general government. #Quote by Michael J. Boskin
Income quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#85. All indications are that most Americans have become entrapped in wealth. Studies have shown that the wealthier people become, the lower percentage of their income they tend to give away. For example, in 2000 the gap between the average wealth of Americans and that of the poorest 25 percent of people on the planet was four times greater than what it had been in 1960. During this same period of time, the percentage of our country's GNP (Gross National Product) that went to providing assistance to the poorest 25 percent of people on the planet decreased to about one tenth of what it had been in 1960. While there are many incredibly generous Americans, as a nation we've clearly become entrapped by our wealth. #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Income quotes by Bob Burg
#86. Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them. #Quote by Bob Burg
Income quotes by Patti Stanger
#87. As long as women are in the work force making their own money and decisions, men are going to have to realize that this way of life is here to stay - because it takes two incomes to make it and more now. The sooner you address your style of saving and spending with your mate the better off your relationship will be. #Quote by Patti Stanger
Income quotes by Michael Steele
#88. [The healthcare bill is a] headlong rush into socialism ... we will not stand for the Obama-Pelosi-Reid hijacking of our freedom and democracy so they can impose their socialist 'utopia' of higher taxes, restricted access, inferior quality, and deadly inefficiency on the best health care system in the world ... You and the RNC are all that stand between the Democrats' scheme to take more of your hard-earned income to pay for this unsustainable, freedom destroying entitlement and an opportunity to work for real, truly bipartisan step-by-step solutions ... #Quote by Michael Steele
Income quotes by Will Rogers
#89. If your Income Taxes go to help out the less fortunate, there could be no legitimate kick against it in the world. This is becoming the richest, and the poorest Country in the world. Why? Why, on account of an unequal distribution of the money. #Quote by Will Rogers
Income quotes by Dale T. Mortensen
#90. Although labor income is by far the largest component of gross national product, a job is not just a commodity. For many, work is an important reason for living. Even for those who are less fortunate in their allocation of work, being unemployed is a miserable state. #Quote by Dale T. Mortensen
Income quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#91. We must develop a federal program of public works, retraining, and jobs for all - so that none, white or black, will have cause to feel threatened
... There is nothing except shortsightedness to prevent us from guaranteeing an annual minimum and livable income for every American family. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Income quotes by William MacAskill
#92. One additional unit of income can do a hundred times as much to the benefit the extreme poor as it can to benefit you or I [earning the typical US wage of $28,000 or £18,000 per year]. [I]t's not often you have two options, one of which is a hundred times better than the other. Imagine a happy hour where you could either buy yourself a beet for $5 or buy someone else a beer for 5¢. If that were the case, we'd probably be pretty generous – next round's on me! But that's effectively the situation we're in all the time. It's like a 99% off sale, or buy one, get ninety-nine free. It might be the most amazing deal you'll see in your life. #Quote by William MacAskill
Income quotes by George Aiken
#93. True conservation provides for wise use by the general public. The American people do not want our resources preserved for the exclusive use of the wealthy. These land and water resources belong to the people, and people of all income levels should have easy access to them. #Quote by George Aiken
Income quotes by Anne Robinson
#94. I've always taken risks and bought property well. As journalism wasn't particularly well paid, buying homes and selling them for profit improved my income. #Quote by Anne Robinson
Income quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#95. Barack Obama's enemies are the people who make this country work. Barack Obama's enemies are those who succeed. Those are the people whose income he wants to redistribute. Those are the people whose income he wants to take, using the power and the force of the federal government to do it. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Income quotes by Leila Janah
#96. The problem in a lot of low-income countries is that people take out loans to go and get degrees, which are then irrelevant in the job market. #Quote by Leila Janah
Income quotes by Janet Yellen
#97. The past few decades of widening inequality can be summed up as significant income and wealth gains for those at the very top and stagnant living standards for the majority #Quote by Janet Yellen
Income quotes by Kiera Cass
#98. Our caste was just three away from the bottom. We were artists. And artists and classical musicians were only three steps up from dirt. Literally. Our money was stretched as tight as a high wire, and our income was highly dependent on the changing seasons. #Quote by Kiera Cass
Income quotes by Robert Reich
#99. As we segregate by income into different communities, schools in lower-income areas have fewer resources than ever. #Quote by Robert Reich
Income quotes by Ha-Joon Chang
#100. Once you realize that trickle-down economics does not work, you will see the excessive tax cuts for the rich as what they are
a simple upward redistribution of income, rather than a way to make all of us richer, as we were told. #Quote by Ha-Joon Chang
Income quotes by Natascha McElhone
#101. I feel awful for women who are trying to raise kids on their own, with zero income and no fathers present - that's single motherhood. #Quote by Natascha McElhone
Income quotes by Berkeley Breathed
#102. The cartooning was always just an abstraction. It was an income. It was making me famous. It was allowing me to go and do other things that I'd wanted to do. #Quote by Berkeley Breathed
Income quotes by Ann Romney
#103. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person who is trying to hide things, or do things? #Quote by Ann Romney
Income quotes by Michael Lewis
#104. The simple measure of sanity in housing prices, Zelman argued, was the ratio of median home price to income. Historically, in the United States, it ran around 3:1; by late 2004, it had risen nationally, to 4:1. "All these people were saying it was nearly as high in some other countries," says Zelman. "But the problem wasn't just that it was four to one. In Los Angeles it was ten to one and in Miami, eight-point-five to one. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Income quotes by Kenneth Arrow
#105. The general uncertainty about the prospects of medical treatment is socially handled by rigid entry requirements. These are designed to reduce the uncertainty in the mind of the consumer as to the quality insofar as this is possible. I think this explanation, which is perhaps the naive one, is much more tenable than any idea of a monopoly seeking to increase incomes. #Quote by Kenneth Arrow
Income quotes by Paul LePage
#106. And my response is 70,000 people in the state of Maine that paid income tax in 2011 will not be paying income tax in 2012. #Quote by Paul LePage
Income quotes by Thomas Piketty
#107. To be sure, the cost of managing capital and of "formal" financial intermediation (that is, the investment advice and portfolio management services provided by a bank or official financial institution or real estate agency or managing partner) is obviously taken into account and deducted from the income on capital in calculating the average rate of return (as presented here). But this is not the case with "informal" financial intermediation: every investor spends time - in some cases a lot of time - managing his own portfolio and affairs and determining which investments are likely to be the most profitable. This effort can in certain cases be compared to genuine entrepreneurial labor or to a form of business activity. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Income quotes by Melissa Scott
#108. Writing isn't generally a lucrative source of income; only a few, exceptional writers reach the income levels associated with the best-sellers. Rather, most of us write because we can make a modest living, or even supplement our day jobs, doing something about which we feel passionately. Even at the worst of times, when nothing goes right, when the prose is clumsy and the ideas feel stale, at least we're doing something that we genuinely love. There's no other reason to work this hard, except that love. #Quote by Melissa Scott
Income quotes by Isabel Allende
#109. Giving women education, work, the ability to control their own income, inherit and own property, benefits the society. If a woman is empowered, her children and her family will be better off. If families prosper, the village prospers, and eventually so does the whole country. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Income quotes by Bernie Sanders
#110. I think Katrina is one more indication of how inefficient and corrupt this Administration is, and indicates the absolute lack of seriousness that [George W.]Bush has in making the government respond to the needs of the people. They are so separated from the lives of normal, low-income people that it never occurred to them that if you're poor and have no money, no car, that you can't leave. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Income quotes by Shakti Gawain
#111. While no amount of financial wealth can guarantee an experience of prosperity, it is possible to experience prosperity at almost any level of income, except when we are unable to meet our basic physical needs. #Quote by Shakti Gawain
Income quotes by Irwin Redlener
#112. Many low-income children face chronic stress from nutritional deprivation or persistent violence at home or in the community. By addressing their medical, emotional and developmental needs through a comprehensive clinical care model, we can lower their risk of developing long-term physical and mental health issues. #Quote by Irwin Redlener
Income quotes by James Weldon Johnson
#113. I had made my mind up that since I was not going to be a Negro, I would avail myself of every possible opportunity to make a white man's success; and that, if it can be summed up in any one word, means "money. #Quote by James Weldon Johnson
Income quotes by Matt Taibbi
#114. The sudden introduction of these magic mortgage bonds into the marketplace pushed most every major institutional investor in the world to suddenly become consumed with the desire to lend money to American home borrowers, even if they didn't know to whom exactly they were lending or how exactly these borrowers were qualifying for their home loans. As a result of this lunatic process, houses in middle- and lower-income neighborhoods from Fresno to the Jersey Shore became jammed full of new home borrowers, millions and millions of them, who in many cases were not equal to the task of making their monthly payments. The situation was tenable so long as housing prices kept rising and these teeming new populations of home borrowers could keep their heads above water, selling or refinancing their way out of trouble if need be. But the instant the arrow began tilting downward, this rapidly expanding death-balloon of phony real estate value inevitably had to - and did - explode. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Income quotes by Manoj Arora
#115. Money has the power to buy you things. But a much bigger power of money is in generating more money for you. Those who are able to manifest the latter, are never short of it. #Quote by Manoj Arora
Income quotes by Ellen Cushing
#116. The vast majority of Americans, at all coordinates of the economic spectrum, consider themselves middle class; this is a deeply ingrained, distinctly American cognitive dissonance. #Quote by Ellen Cushing
Income quotes by Sam Harris

Income quotes by George Deukmejian

Income quotes by Alan Keyes
#119. The income tax is a twentieth-century socialist experiment that has failed. Before the income tax was imposed on us just 80 years ago, government had no claim to our income. Only sales, excise, and tariff taxes were allowed. #Quote by Alan Keyes
Income quotes by Anonymous
#120. Profitably selling to the bottom of the pyramid is difficult, but it can be done. It requires companies to focus on business fundamentals and start their ventures with a rigorous understanding of two key challenges in low-income markets: changing consumers' behavior and changing the way products are made and delivered. #Quote by Anonymous
Income quotes by Robert Higgs
#121. Income inequality has no necessary connection with poverty, the lack of material resources for a decent life, such as adequate food, shelter, and clothing. A society with great income inequality may have no poor people, and a society with no income inequality may have nothing but poor people. #Quote by Robert Higgs
Income quotes by Bill Gates
#122. In low-income countries, getting to a health post is hard. It's very expensive. #Quote by Bill Gates
Income quotes by Laura Wasser
#123. If one person is spending all of their income on clothes, travel, hobbies, and entertaining, and one person is saving it, that may not be quite fair if and when you guys split up, depending on what the law is and what you decided to do. #Quote by Laura Wasser
Income quotes by James C. Scott
#124. The power to gossip is more democratically distributed than power, property, and income, and, certainly, than the freedom to speak openly. #Quote by James C. Scott
Income quotes by Christopher Dodd
#125. Low-income taxpayers deserve the same rights as everyone else. It was wrong of the IRS to target low-income taxpayers, and I am please by the decision to correct this unfair practice. #Quote by Christopher Dodd
Income quotes by Carolyn Weber
#126. And there you are. In the ring. With The Terror. it's just tiny, feeble you, another student or two smarter than you, and your professor, far smarter than you. Oh sure, your professor civilly serves tea or sherry depending on the time of day, but The Terror remains.
Gradually, however, The Terror morphs into The Excitement as you being to lose yourself in the luxurious tendrils of a stimulating argument. Time always flies, the hour (or two or three) leaving you exhausted, happy, perturbed, and yet strangely satisfied by the end…. As a result, pursuing one's degree at Oxford becomes for most not a matter of prerequisite for a job, or to please one's parents, or to make minimum income bracket. Rather, the opportunity to study here seals an experience marked by intense personal growth resulting from a genuine desire to learn. A heady, hearty experience that changes you forever because it cracks you open ultimately to the humility of learning, which is where all of this wanted to take you in the first place." 56 #Quote by Carolyn Weber
Income quotes by Francine Prose
#127. My publishers, two Catalan brothers with an inherited income, took me out to lunch to inform me that the first print run would be only five hundred copies. Five hundred readers? I accept! And the lunch was delicious. #Quote by Francine Prose
Income quotes by Harry Browne
#128. I found that I was getting a warm reception for my message of freeing you from the income tax, releasing you from Social Security, ending the insane war on drugs, restoring gun rights, and reducing the federal government to just its constitutional functions. #Quote by Harry Browne
Income quotes by Tim Ferriss
#129. Three ingredients of luxury lifestyle design are time, income, and mobility. #Quote by Tim Ferriss
Income quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#130. [T]he essence of so-called war prosperity: it enriches some by what it takes from others. It is not rising wealth but a shifting of wealth and income. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Income quotes by Pete Seeger
#131. I like to say I'm more conservative than Goldwater. He just wanted to turn the clock back to when there was no income tax. #Quote by Pete Seeger
Income quotes by Alan W. Watts
#132. We therefore work, not
for the work's sake, but for money - and money is supposed to get us
what we really want in our hours of leisure and play. In the United
States even poor people have lots of money compared with the wretched
and skinny millions of India, Africa, and China, while our middle andupper classes (or should we say "income groups") are as prosperous as
princes. Yet, by and large, they have but slight taste for pleasure. Money
alone cannot buy pleasure, though it can help. For enjoyment is an art
and a skill for which we have little talent or energy. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Income quotes by Penn Jillette
#133. Well, it's not really the right word, but freedom is kind of a hobby with me, and I have disposable income that I'll spend to find out how to get people more of it. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Income quotes by Caris O'Malley
#134. So what do you do?' she asked. 'I sneak around at night, well, usually at night, and gather coins out of fountains', I said slowly, watching her face for judgement. She burst into laughter. 'Like spare change? You collect people's wishes? And you spend them on yourself?' 'They're not wishes' I said. 'They lose their symbolism once they hit corporate water. At that time they either become extra income for people who don't need it, or they can help me get along in the world. #Quote by Caris O'Malley
Income quotes by Katherine Boo
#135. We talk a lot about infrastructure in cities, and it's talking about highways and it's talking about trains, but I think more important to people who are low income is, how do I get from here to there? How do I become part of the affluence that's surrounding me? #Quote by Katherine Boo
Income quotes by Major Owens

Income quotes by Chris Lutz

Income quotes by Doug Henwood
#141. A rentier is an investor whose relationship to a company or enterprise is strictly limited to the ownership of financial wealth (such as stocks or bonds) and the receipt of income on that wealth (such as dividends or interest). The financial system performs dismally at its advertised task, that of efficiently directing society's savings towards their optimal investment pursuits. The system is stupefyingly expensive, gives terrible signals for the allocation of capital, and has surprisingly little to do with real investment. #Quote by Doug Henwood
Income quotes by Mian Muhammad Mansha
#142. People like me, whose income largely comes from dividends, should pay more taxes. #Quote by Mian Muhammad Mansha
Income quotes by Mike Huckabee
#143. I'm still one who says that we can get rid of the Internal Revenue Service if we would pass the fair tax, which is a tax on consumption rather than a tax on people's income, and move power back where the founders believed it should have been all along. #Quote by Mike Huckabee
Income quotes by Radhika Vaz
#144. What 'next level' I wanted to scream! The level of sleepless nights and zero disposable income? Is being constantly tired and borderline broke supposed to make us more in love or something? And what makes you think that as a couple we haven't already reached that level of pain and anxiety? Perhaps we did it without having kids! Maybe that is how fabulous we are. Did anyone think of that? #Quote by Radhika Vaz

Income quotes by Brian Godawa
#146. Needless to say, Lot kept his faith to himself. He told no one of his family background, for fear of them discovering his religion. He never told anyone who he really was. He also saw that the society that touted itself as the "Cities of Love" was actually quite inhospitable to strangers and visitors. Traveling merchants who came to sell their wares in the cities were usually beat up and run out of town, because they were considered greedy. In reality, it was because their prices were so cheap. But the local workers maintained a greedy control over the marketplace. The city took so much of the workers' income, they barely had enough to live on. So, they did not want anyone else to have what they could not. #Quote by Brian Godawa
Income quotes by Dave Barry
#147. If you're like most members of the Baby Boom generation, you decided somewhere along the line, probably after about four margaritas, to have children. This was inevitable. Mother Nature, in her infinite wisdom, has instilled within each of us a powerful biological instinct to reproduce; this is her way of assuring that the human race, come what may, will never have any disposable income. #Quote by Dave Barry
Income quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#148. The consequences of inflation are malinvestment, waste, a wanton redistribution of wealth and income, the growth of speculation and gambling, immorality and corruption, disillusionment, social resentment, discontent, upheaval and riots, bankruptcy, increased government controls, and eventual collapse. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Income quotes by John Brunner

Income quotes by Tino Sehgal
#150. We package everything as a product so we can derive income from it. Then we can occupy ourselves with higher-order psychological lifestyle things. This is a very new issue. Money still matters, but other factors have joined the status game - like how interesting, how meaningful your work is. #Quote by Tino Sehgal
Income quotes by Morgan Freeman
#151. My roots were pretty far removed from high income. It's interesting to be back there at the level of income I have now, at this stage in my life. #Quote by Morgan Freeman
Income quotes by Star Parker
#152. Those on the left who scream about income gaps choose to focus on the success of those at the top rather than the failures of those at the bottom. They conveniently ignore that liberals are the ones who have pushed the moral relativisim and welfare-state dependence that has destroyed black families over the last 60 years. And it is these same liberals who fight to keep low-income kids in failing public schools and fight efforts to get school choice. #Quote by Star Parker
Income quotes by Nicholas Kristof

Income quotes by Thomas Piketty
#154. Among the members of these upper income groups are US academic economists, many of whom believe that the economy of the United States is working fairly well and, in particular, that it rewards talent and merit accurately and precisely.

Income quotes by Thomas Sowell
#157. High tax rates in the upper income brackets allow politicians to win votes with class warfare rhetoric, painting their opponents as defenders of the rich. Meanwhile, the same politicians can win donations from the rich by creating tax loopholes that can keep the rich from actually paying those higher tax rates - or perhaps any taxes at all. What is worse than class warfare is phony class warfare. Slippery talk about 'fairness' is at the heart of this fraud by politicians seeking to squander more of the nation's resources. #Quote by Thomas Sowell

Income quotes by James Altucher

Income quotes by Alan Greenspan

Income quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#163. All men know that by sheer weight of physical force, the mass of men must in the last resort become the arbiters of human action. But reason, skill, wealth, machines and power may for long periods enable the few to control the many. But to what end? The current theory of democracy is that dictatorship is a stopgap pending the work of universal education, equitable income, and strong character. But always the temptation is to use the stopgap for narrower ends, because intelligence, thrift and goodness seem so impossibly distant for most men. We rule by junta; we turn Fascist, because we do not believe in men; yet the basis of fact in this disbelief is incredibly narrow. We know perfectly well that most human beings have never had a decent human chance to be full men. Most of us may be convinced that even with opportunity the number of utter human failures would be vast; and yet remember that this assumption kept the ancestors of present white America long in slavery and degradation.

It is then one's moral duty to see that every human being, to the extent of his capacity, escapes ignorance, poverty and crime. With this high ideal held unswervingly in view, monarchy, oligarchy, dictatorships may rule; but the end will be the rule of All, if mayhap All or Most qualify. The only unforgivable sin is dictatorship for the benefit of Fools, Voluptuaries, gilded Satraps, Prostitutes and Idiots. The rule of the famished, unlettered, stinking mob is better than this and the on #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois

Income quotes by Anne-Marie Slaughter
#165. Someone must transform income into the food, shelter, clothing, nurture, discipline, education, minding, nursing, transportation, and emotional support that creates life outside of the office, permits survival of the race, cares for the ill and disabled, and makes life livable when we can no longer care for ourselves. #Quote by Anne-Marie Slaughter
Income quotes by Arthur C. Brooks
#166. Liberals are more likely to see people as victims of circumstance and oppression, and doubt whether individuals can climb without governmental help. My own analysis using 2005 survey data from Syracuse University shows that about 90 percent of conservatives agree that "While people may begin with different opportunities, hard work and perseverance can usually overcome those disadvantages." Liberals - even upper-income liberals - are a third less likely to say this. #Quote by Arthur C. Brooks
Income quotes by Famke Janssen

Income quotes by Marc Andreessen

Income quotes by David Foster Wallace
#169. So this purports to be a disease, alcoholism? A disease like a cold? Or like cancer? I have to tell you, I have never heard of anyone being told to pray for relief from cancer. Outside maybe certain very rural parts of the American South, that is. So what is this? You're ordering me to pray? Because I allegedly have a disease? I dismantle my life and career and entered nine months of low-income treatment for a disease, and I'm prescribed prayer? Does the word retrograde signify? Am I in a sociohistorical era I don't know about? What exactly is the story here? #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Income quotes by Matthew Desmond
#170. Resource-poor schools in low-income neighborhoods often leave children with subpar language and critical-thinking skills. Those deficits will remain even if those children relocate to safe and prosperous neighborhoods later in life. To think of those school-conditioned speech patterns and belief systems as evidence of a "culture of poverty," the invention of poor families themselves, is to overlook the influence of broken cultural institutions through which low-income families pass.

Income quotes by Seneca.
#174. Why of your own accord postpone your real life to the distant future? Shall you wait for some interest to fall due, or for some income on your merchandise, or for a place in the will of some wealthy old man, when you can be rich here and now. Wisdom offers wealth in ready money, and pays it over to those in whose eyes she has made wealth superfluous. These #Quote by Seneca.
Income quotes by Thomas J. Stanley
#175. Most people have it all wrong about wealth in America. Wealth is not the same as income. If you make a good income each year and spend it all, you are not getting wealthier. You are just living high. Wealth is what you accumulate, not what you spend. #Quote by Thomas J. Stanley
Income quotes by William Batchelder Greene
#176. What is it to be rich? It is to have an assured income in excess of expenditures, and to have no occasion for anxiety for the morrow. It is to be above the necessity of living from hand to mouth. It is to be able (or to have grounds to insanely suppose one's self to be able) to live outside of God's providence. #Quote by William Batchelder Greene
Income quotes by Jacqueline Novogratz

Income quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#178. The reason this system can't be overthrown in this country," Walter said, "is all about freedom. The reason the free market in Europe is tempered by socialism is that they're not so hung up on personal liberties there. They also have lower population growth rates, despite comparable income levels. The Europans are all-around more rational, basically. And the conversation about rights in this country isn't rational. It's taking place on the level of emotion, and class resentments, which is why the right is so good at exploiting it. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Income quotes by Murray Rothbard
#179. Just as no one is morally required to answer a robber truthfully when he asks if there are any valuables in one's house, so no one can be morally required to answer truthfully similar questions asked by the State, e.g., when filling out income tax returns. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Income quotes by Olawale Daniel
#180. When your SALARY is RAISED, don't RAISE your PROFILE. Instead, RAISE your INVESTMENT so you depend on PROFIT and instead of SALARY. Don't buy a new CAR. Buy a new TAXI. Don't buy new SHOES to WEAR. Buy SHOES to SELL. SELL and you will EXCEL #Quote by Olawale Daniel
Income quotes by Alfred Marshall
#181. And very often the influence exerted on a person's character by the amount of his income is hardly less, if it is less, than that exerted by the way in which it is earned. #Quote by Alfred Marshall
Income quotes by Caroline Criado Perez
#182. A UK Department for Transport study highlighted the stark difference between male and female perceptions of danger, finding that 62% of women are scared walking in multistorey car parks, 60% are scared waiting on train platforms, 49% are scared waiting at the bus stop, and 59% are scared walking home from a bus stop or station. The figures for men are 31%, 25% , 20 % and 25%, respectively. Fear of crime is particularly high among low-income women, partly because they tend to live in areas with higher crime rates, but also because they are likely to be working odd hours and often come home from work in the dark. Ethnic-minority women tend to experience more fear for the same reasons, as well as having the added danger of (often gendered) racialised violence to contend with. #Quote by Caroline Criado Perez

#183. A high income job, a big house, nice cars, and lavish vacations don't mean you are rich, in fact it could mean exactly opposite #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Income quotes by Seth
#184. We happily give up our freedom and our income in exchange for having someone else take responsibility for telling us what to do next. #Quote by Seth
Income quotes by Dave Matthes
#185. I fancy myself a writer. And writing, in its most eloquent manner, since time became a concept indoctrinated by true troglodytes, tickles my dong; it throttles my flume; it punts my epididymus to horizons fantastical.

And not just writing bullshit; a few seemingly overused words to describe the belched bark of a goddamn sequoia, but actually writing. Writing to me is not about thinking, it's not about personality traits or hell, even the conveyance of feelings. Writing is like breathing to me. I have to do it. I have to inhale it and exhale it, no matter what comes in and likewise what comes out. Traversing the slopes of the soul, scratching that all but intangible itch, I find solace in the abyss of my complacency. It‟s not for recognition, not for income or monetary satisfaction. None of that really matters to me. The only thing that matters to me is finding the way to transfer a thought to paper; a heartbeat to the surface; a blink and a gasp to submissively correspond with the outcry of tangible suspense. #Quote by Dave Matthes
Income quotes by John F. Kerry
#186. Medicare is paid for by the American taxpayer. Medicare belongs to you. Medicare is for seniors, who many of them are on fixed income, to lift them out of poverty. #Quote by John F. Kerry
Income quotes by Jacob Lund Fisker
#187. In the same vein, tally up the sum total of your earned income so far, subtract your savings, and compare the difference to your pile of stuff. Was it really a good deal? #Quote by Jacob Lund Fisker
Income quotes by Martin Adams
#188. Our inability to share the gifts of nature causes much suffering in the world today... We mistakenly believe that a free market should allow people and corporations to profit from nature, yet we've failed to consider the immense cost to life that occurs whenever people are allowed to reap what they haven't sown at the expense of others. While the privatization of capital can lead to production efficiencies that benefit the entire market, the same can't be said for privatization of nature. Whenever the income stream from nature is privatized, human beings take for themselves the gifts that would better be freely shared with everyone. #Quote by Martin Adams
Income quotes by Martin Adams
#189. Since people can only be paid for their goods and services or extract rent from society, less income is available to service the payment of goods and services when proportionally more income is used to pay monopolized rent for land. Essentially, whenever property owners collect rent from rising land values, fewer financial resources are left over for wages and capital investments, and this dynamic can effectively put society on the fast track toward social decline and wealth inequality. #Quote by Martin Adams
Income quotes by Alex Kapranos
#190. I didn't grasp the basic principle of being a promoter, which was: Put on music but also generate an income. I was on the dole most of the time. #Quote by Alex Kapranos
Income quotes by Martin Adams
#191. Broadly speaking, there are only two ways human beings can make an income: ...by contributing to society or they can extract an income from society #Quote by Martin Adams
Income quotes by Michael Lewis
#192. The relationship between the people and their money in California is such that you can pluck almost any city at random and enter a crisis. San Jose has the highest per capita income of any city in the United States, after New York. It has the highest credit rating of any city in California with a population over 250,000. It is one of the few cities in America with a triple-A rating from Moody's and Standard & Poor's, but only because its bondholders have the power to compel the city to levy a tax on property owners to pay off the bonds. The city itself is not all that far from being bankrupt. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Income quotes by William Shakespeare
#193. Pain pays the income of each precious thing. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Income quotes by Bill Drayton
#194. In 1962, when I was 19, I visited India. With introductions from people involved in the U.S. civil rights movement, I was able to visit with several of the leading Gandhians there. The hundred-to-one difference in average per capita income between America and India at the time was a stark reality for the people who became my friends there. #Quote by Bill Drayton
Income quotes by Wilkie Collins
#195. I am not against hasty marriages where a mutual flame is fanned by an adequate income. #Quote by Wilkie Collins
Income quotes by Nina Easton
#196. A huge segment of the country has always felt overtaxed. In 1938, when taxes were roughly 17% of income, a 'Fortune' survey found that nearly half of all Americans thought they paid too much relative to what they got in return. #Quote by Nina Easton
Income quotes by Adam Hasner
#197. I will never support any tax increase on middle-income earners, ever ... If you're not going to eliminate loopholes and exemptions, then I wouldn't support lowering rates. #Quote by Adam Hasner
Income quotes by Robert Reich
#198. As income from work has become more concentrated in America, the super rich have invested in businesses, real estate, art, and other assets. The income from these assets is now concentrating even faster than income from work. #Quote by Robert Reich
Income quotes by Bear Grylls
#199. Whatever doesn't kill you only serves to make you stronger. And in the grand scheme of life, I had survived and grown stronger, at least mentally, if not physically.
I had come within an inch of losing all my movement and, by the grace of God, still lived to tell the tale. I had learned so much, but above all, I had gained an understanding of the cards I had been playing with.
The problem now was that I had no job and no income.
Earning a living and following your heart can so often pull you in different directions, and I knew I wasn't the first person to feel that strain.
My decision to climb Everest was a bit of a "do or die" mission.
If I climbed it and became one of the youngest climbers ever to have reached the summit, then I had at least a sporting chance of getting some sort of job in the expedition world afterward--either doing talks or leading treks.
I would be able to use it as a springboard to raise sponsorship to do some other expeditions.
But on the other hand, if I failed, I would either be dead on the mountain or back home and broke--with no job and no qualifications.
The reality was that it wasn't a hard decision for me to make. Deep down in my bones, I just knew it was the right thing to do: to go for it.
Plus I have never been one to be too scared of that old imposter: failure.
I had never climbed for people's admiration; I had always climbed because I was half-decent at it--and now I had an avenue, through E #Quote by Bear Grylls
Income quotes by G. William Domhoff
#200. The idea that a relatively fixed group of privileged people might shape the economy and government for their own benefit goes against the American grain. Nevertheless, the owners and top-level managers in large income-producing properties are far and away the dominant power figures in the United States. Their corporations, banks, and agribusinesses come together as a corporate community that dominates the federal government in Washington. Their real estate, construction, and land development companies form growth coalitions that dominate most local governments. #Quote by G. William Domhoff
