Personal Finance Books Quotes that Inspire Everyday

Just like a single moment can change someones entire life, sometimes the best important ideas from any books can be summarized in a few simple quotes. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the personal finance books that I have read that helped me produce a profound impact on my financial life.

The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason

The Behavior Gap by Carl Richards

“But in the end, financial decisions aren’t about getting rich. They’re about getting what you want—getting happy.”
