Inspiring Quotes

After a few months on Emma now I’ve noticed the quotes cupboard for the bottom of the feed seems a little bare. I know lockdowns are in place around the world (that comment is going to date), but I’m sure Old Mother Hubbard can justify a trip to the shops to stock up.

Here’s a topic to add famous quotes for the developers consideration and/or all of our amusement.

Keep it clean and appropriate out there!

The sayings and quotes are all from white middle aged men and not particularly men I admire. How about some inspirational quotes from a diverse range of people.

There’s lots of inspirational quotes about money, from literature, history and more recently from world commenters in this global pandemic. I just think the quotes should be from a more diverse pool of people not the standard , Branson, Jobs etc. I personally would like to see something more interesting, uplifting and encouraging.

My personal favourite

  • “Don’t spend your money” - My Dad
