Quote of the Day
There is no such thing in the world as luck. There never was a man who could go out in the morning and find a purse full of gold in the street to-day, and another to-morrow, and so on, day after day: He may do so once in his life; but so far as mere luck is concerned, he is as liable to lose it as to find it.
P. T. Barnum
On recovering my senses, I hastened to quit a place where I hoped there was nothing further to detain me. I first filled my pockets with gold, then fastened the strings of the purse round my neck, and concealed it in my bosom.
Adelbert von Chamisso
Flattery and deceit are the darlings of great men, and so with these men spread the butter on thick, if you want to get something out of them, otherwise you'll come home to me with a full belly and an empty purse.
We are Jesus Christ's; we belong to him. But even more, we are increasingly him. He moves in and commandeers our hands and feet, requisitions our minds and tongues. We sense his rearranging: debris into the divine, pig's ear into silk purse. He repurposes bad decisions and squalid choices. Little by little, a new image emerges.
I'm sickened by all religions. Religion has divided people. I don't think there's any difference between the pope wearing a large hat and parading around with a smoking purse and an African painting his face white and praying to a rock.
A little wanton money, which burned out the bottom of his purse.
A car for every purse and purpose.
Alfred P. Sloan
Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse.
If a man empties his purse into his head, no one can take it from him.

Those who corrupt the public mind are just as evil as those who steal from the public purse.
Adlai E. Stevenson
No people is wholly civilized where a distinction is drawn between stealing an office and stealing a purse.
It's true; once you are a father, there's no turning back. Your heart strings as well as your purse strings are never again the same.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
It is not poverty so much as pretense that harasses a ruined man - the struggle between a proud mind and an empty purse - the keeping up of a hollow show that must soon come to an end.
It is criminal to steal a purse, daring to steal a fortune, a mark of greatness to steal a crown. The blame diminishes as the guilt increases.
I ran five miles today. Then, finally, I said, 'Here, lady... take your purse.'
I think what it really is, is that I date creative people. And I think that what intimidates them is not my purse; it's my mind.
I don't carry a purse when I fly because I have my Hello Kitty carry-on. I'm the biggest adult supporter.
I can be standing in Barneys with my coat and purse and my selections, and some white woman will say, 'Can you get this in my size?' What she sees is a black woman, and her service button goes off.
My weakness is dark chocolate. I carry little tins of it in my purse.

The best way to make a silk purse from a sow's ear is to begin with a silk sow. The same is true of money.
Norman Ralph Augustine
I'm a disorganized mess. My purse is gross: I once found a shoulder pad, string cheese, and a Christmas ornament in it!
Regardless of the gender of the highest wage earner, the balance of power in the relationship will suffer if the higher earner uses control of the purse strings as a system of reward and punishment. It will also suffer if the lower earner takes a chippy, haughty attitude to spending money they haven't actually generated themselves.
Sometimes if I have a big enough purse I'll bring my perfume or something. Right now I really like Beaute, it's by Johan B. and it's really nice, so I like that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
