Quote of the Day
Nothing except the mint can make money without advertising.
Thomas Babington Macaulay
The world is not so much in need of new thoughts as that when thought grows old and worn with usage it should, like current coin, be called in, and, from the mint of genius, reissued fresh and new.
Mint's business model became, 'We'll go for free, and then we'll find these savings opportunities for you.' You know, better interest rate on your credit cards, when should you consolidate your student loans, when does it mathematically make sense to refinance your mortgage, and Mint figures all that stuff out for you.
The truth is, I can't help the way people perceive anything, from the role of financial industry in the economic crisis, to the place of women's fiction in the canon of modern literature, to the rank of mint chocolate chip ice cream as a favorite Baskin-Robbins flavor.
Every cloud has its silver lining but it is sometimes a little difficult to get it to the mint.
The mint makes it first, it is up to you to make it last.
Luxury lives in the finer details. It's a cloth napkin at a dinner table. It's a mint on your pillow before bed.

A penny will not buy a penny postcard or a penny whistle or a single piece of penny candy. It will not even, if you're managing the U.S. Mint, buy a penny.
P. J. O'Rourke
I never carry a purse. My iPhone is always with me, a credit card, and a piece of mint chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream gum.
Rachel G. Fox

Kevin Systrom of Instagram used to work for us as a consultant in the early days of Mint. I knew him a long time ago. Maybe I could have gotten in there. But with photo sharing, I don't know if there's an obvious business model. I don't think there's a competitive, sustainable advantage.
Ally MacLeod thinks that tactics are a new kind of mint.
The world is like a little marsh filled with mint and white hawthorn.
After building most of Mint.com's prototype by myself, I talked to anyone and everyone I knew about Mint. It's counter-intuitive, because you might fear someone will steal your idea, but it's the only way to make connections, be sure you're on the right track, and provide a solution for an audience broader than yourself.
If someone offers you a breath mint, accept it.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

The coolest gift I've ever gotten from a fan was from the Franklin Mint. It was a knife, and it had a picture of General Wade Hampton, who my oldest son is named after. It's a collector's item and came with a case and a stand and everything.

Gian Carlo Menotti
It is the destiny of mint to be crushed.
Waverley Lewis Root
I have a friend - not a dwarf - who's an alchemist of sorts. He concocted a men's cologne... He gave me a bottle as a gift. I was thinking we should totally put this on the market.

I feel like everything I ever did in my life led me to the Franklin Mint.
I get up at 5.30am, sluice myself and have two Weetabix and some mint tea, before starting to write by 6am.

Charles Farrar Browne
