If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
— Benjamin Franklin

Never give anyone total access to your pockets, your pockets, your purse or your mind.
Unknown purses quote

It is criminal to steal a purse, daring to steal a fortune, a mark of greatness to steal a crown. The blame diminishes as the guilt increases.
— Friedrich Schiller

Those who corrupt the public mind are just as evil as those who steal from the public purse.
— Adlai Stevenson

Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse.
— purses quotation by George Washington
