There is no easy formula for determining right and wrong livelihood, but it is essential to keep the question alive. To return the sense of dignity and honor to manhood, we have to stop pretending that we can make a living at something that is trivial or destructive and still have sense of legitimate self-worth. A society in which vocation and job are separated for most people gradually creates an economy that is often devoid of spirit, one that frequently fills our pocketbooks at the cost of emptying our souls.
— Sam Keen

Today's gasoline prices are taking a severe toll on Americans' pocketbooks. Consumers are anxious.
Pete Domenici pocketbook quote

We ask from the heart that supermarkets, which are now more profitable and selling more, help us to take care of the pocketbook of the people by not raising prices.
— Nestor Kirchner

I was raised by a single mother who made a way for me. She used to scrub floors as a domestic worker, put a cleaning rag in her pocketbook and ride the subways in Brooklyn so I would have food on the table. But she taught me as I walked her to the subway that life is about not where you start, but where you're going. That's family values.
— Al Sharpton

It is an unfortunate human failing that a full pocketbook often groans more loudly than an empty stomach.
— pocketbook quotation by Franklin D. Roosevelt
