Always Borrow Money From a Pessimist

Always borrow money from a pessimist, he doesn’t expect to be paid back.

My email is often filled with more spam than mail, but recently I signed up to receive inspirational quotes from a variety of sources. Usually, I receive quotes about living a better life, making the most of what you have, and counting your blessings. So I couldn’t help laughing when I found this quote in my inbox earlier today.

Since I started writing this blog I’ve been amazed at the number of times financial references pop into my every day life. Hopefully, no one takes this quote to heart. Obviously anyone who borrows money, should expect to pay it back.

  1. From Real Simple mag? I get those too! They are often really fun quotes! =)I enjoy your blog (from one frugal girl to the other)

  2. Real Simple is my absolute favorite magazine. I love the ‘new uses for old things’ articles. Before throwing something out or giving it away, I always ask myself, could I use this for some other purpose šŸ™‚ About 25% of the time I find some other use for something that would have otherwise been garbage.
