Budget Quotations

Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you're a director. Everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee.
James Cameron

A budget tells us what we can't afford, but it doesn't keep us from buying it.
William Feather

The budget is not just a collection of numbers, but an expression of our values and aspirations.
Jacob Lew

We can't equate spending on veterans with spending on defense. Our strength is not just in the size of our defense budget, but in the size of our hearts, in the size of our gratitude for their sacrifice. And that's not just measured in words or gestures.
Jennifer Granholm
