In one of his Famous Quotes concerning money, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. said “A man is usually more careful of his money than of his principles.”. I am sure everyone reading this has seen an example.

One of the Famous Quotes of Robert Byrd addresses money. Byrd said “It is money, money, money! Not ideas, not principles, but money that reigns supreme in American politics.”.
