A few inspiring quotes by Dave Ramsey

Today I stumbled across the name Dave Ramsey. I don't know this guy, but I've heard some of the quotes which are now being ascribed to him. I think some of these quotes are quite relevant for people who want to learn how to save money and make your money go further.

Here are some quotes by Dave Ramsey, courtesy of this page.
  1. We buy things we don't need with money we don't have to impress people we don't like.
  2. If you will live like no one else, later you can live like no one else.
  3. Act your wage.
  4. Pray like it all depends on God, but work like it all depends on you.
  5. You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.
  6. A budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went.
  7. For your own good, for the good of your family and your future, grow a backbone. When something is wrong, stand up and say it is wrong, and don't back down.
  8. Without a mission statement, you may get to the top of the ladder and then realize it was leaning against the wrong building!
  9. You must walk to the beat of a different drummer. The same beat that the wealthy hear. If the beat sounds normal, evacuate the dance floor immediately! The goal is to not be normal, because as my radio listeners know, normal is broke.
Here is a video of Dave Ramsey. I like him already, even if I only got to know about him during the writing of this article.
