Money is a token, money buys freedom, it don’t necessarily buy happiness and I’ve still got things I’m overcoming in my own mind, but money will buy you the freedom to not have to work as many hours. Money will buy you the freedom to spend more time with your family.
I remember watching an episode of ‘Seinfeld’ in which George can’t understand why security guards can’t sit down. He gets obsessed with it and eventually buys a chair for a security guard who sits down and goes to sleep. The shop gets robbed. That’s a brilliant extrapolation of what is essentially observational comedy.
This is typical Mourinho. Rashford is the biggest talent you have in England. He needs games. He should be playing every week. Instead, he buys Lukaku, he buys Sanchez.
A pound invested in energy efficiency buys seven times more energy solution than a pound invested in nuclear power.
Money doesn’t just buy a nice car; it also buys better education or healthcare. Increasingly, it can buy impunity from justice, a pliant media, favorable laws, business advantage, and even elections. This, in turn, perpetuates the policies that allow a tiny elite to accumulate ever more wealth at the expense of the majority.
One of the funny things about the stock market is that every time one person buys, another sells, and both think they are astute.
If a kid goes and buys a CD at Best Buy, we have no idea who the person is, how many times they listen to it, or anything like that.
When you are having fun and creating something you love, it shows in the product. So when a woman is sifting through a rack of clothes, somehow that piece of clothing that you had so much fun designing speaks to her; she responds to it and buys it. I believe you can actually transfer that energy to material things as you’re creating them.
No one really buys records anymore. You can look at sales and do that math real quick. Unfortunately, it’s fast food in the music industry. People don’t ingest full records anymore.
The danger of what’s happening right now in terms of using reconciliation is, the purpose of the Senate is going to be defeated. And that is to bring consensus to big issues in this country so that we have a reasoned and thoughtful approach and that the American public buys into it.
The Internet and Yahoo are firmly established as ‘must buys’ for brand advertising.
I am going to make singles with other artists and put those out there – I’d love to work with Bruno Mars, Drake, Kendrick Lamar. But when somebody buys a Tee Grizzley album, all they’re going to hear is Tee Grizzley.
I don’t care if it’s a white millionaire kid from Oxfordshire who comes to my show, buys my record, supports me and rates me. It’s cool.
It’s very difficult to explain to a normal working citizen the implications of what $18 trillion in debt means and what it means when the Federal Reserve buys the U.S. Treasury bonds to finance our loss every month.
Every now and then I have to teach directing. The thing about the theatre is that the most important thing you can do as a director is to make sure that everybody is in the same world – you have to create the world and make sure everyone buys into it.
A filmmaker has almost the same freedom as a novelist has when he buys himself some paper.
Money has no religion. Money does not belong to any class or creed. Neither it belongs to a gender nor an age. Money decides fate. Money also decides status. Money buys you food and money buys a basic necessity like water too.
I love Kamal and Sarika because they are my parents. But nobody buys me a car because of that, and you aren’t flooded with offers, either.
When I first saw my line in stores, that’s when it really hit me that there was a consumer on the other end of it all, and they were going to have to spend their own money on it. So there was that initial panic. I remember thinking, what if nobody buys it?
It’s crazy to make records nobody buys. It’s just a waste of time.
Bad impulse buys make you feel grim, don’t they? It’s like having consumer Tourette’s. I gravitate towards austere foreign-language film DVDs when insecure.
I’ve seen articles suggesting that Wal-Mart buys at prices lower than our competitors’, and that this gives Wal-Mart an unfair advantage. I don’t believe it… What we hear is concern that in some circumstances, Wal-Mart may actually be paying more than our competitors.
Among this country’s enduring myths is that success is virtuous, while the wealth by which we measure success is incidental. We tell ourselves that money cannot buy happiness, but what is incontrovertible is that money buys stuff, and if stuff makes you happy, well, complete the syllogism.
Roughly speaking, when you are dealing with business firms operating in a competitive system, you can assume that they’re going to act rationally. Why? Because someone in a firm who buys things at $10 and sells them for $8.00 isn’t going to last very long in that firm.
