What is your favorite Dave Ramsey quote? Here are some of my favorite Dave Ramsey quotes.

“If you will live like no one else, later you can live like no one else.”

“Normal is broke. So be weird.”

“You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.”

“A budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went.”

“Fear is the enemy of hope.”

“Change is painful. Few people have the courage to seek out change. Most people won’t change until the pain of where they are exceeds the pain of change.”

“Debt is normal! So why be normal?”

“So content people may not have the best of everything, but they make the best of everything. That is who you want your children to be.”

“That stupid saying "What you don't know can't hurt you" is ridiculous. What you don't know can kill you. If you don't know that tractor trailer trucks hurt when hitting you, then you can play in the middle of the interstate with no fear - but that doesn't mean you won't get killed.”
"If broke people are making fun of your financial plan, you’re on track."“Don’t take financial advice from broke people.”

"Broke people giving financial advice is like a shop teacher with missing fingers."

If the Red-Faced Kid (‘I want it, and I want it now!’) rules your life, you will stay broke.”

“Act your wage.”

“Stupid is not illegal.”

"Work is a surefire money-making scheme."

"If you want something you've never had, you'll have to do something you've never done."

"You can't work three hours a week and make $100,000. Get rich quick doesn't work. Crock pot mentality always defeats microwave mentality!"

"Poor is a state of mind. Broke is, 'I'm just passing through.'"

“I'm not against people having new cars. I'm against them having you. We spend a tremendous amount impressing somebody at the stoplight who we'll never meet. It makes you broke and keeps you broke.”

“Let some one else take the butt kicking on devaluation.”

“To think that the handling of your personal finances is merely a matter of math control is naive. You must get better control of all aspects of your life. Until you do, [even the best advice] will have little effect but will instead be neutralized by the other habits in your life.”
