— Jerry Gilles, author of Money Love

#2 of Top-10 Sensational Quotes about Prosperity

To me, true prosperity begins with feeling good about yourself. It is also the freedom to do what you want to do, when you want to do it. It is never an amount of money; it is a state of mind. Prosperity or lack of it is an outer expression of the ideas in your head.
— Louise L. Hay

There is no secret to how to attain prosperity. The Universe supports and rewards us for taking risks on things that matter to the Universe.

Prosperity will then manifest itself easily provided the Universe  agrees that we are doing the right things in our lives to deserve this prosperity.
— from Life's Secret Handbook (Reminders for Adventurous Souls Who Want to Make a Big Difference in This World)

No people ever yet benefited by riches if their prosperity corrupted their virtue.
— Theodore Roosevelt

#9 of Top-10 Sensational Quotes about Prosperity

— Mike Huckabee

#10 of Top-10 Sensational Quotes about Prosperity

You can’t be genuinely prosperous unless you have personal freedom. You will have attained true personal freedom in this world when you can get up in the morning when you want to get up; go to sleep when you want to go to sleep; and in the interval, work and play at the things you want to work and play at — all at your own pace.

Quotations about Prosperity

Gold Coins and Puzzle Ring

#1 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotes

Your prosperity consciousness is not dependent on money; your flow of money is dependent upon your prosperity consciousness.
— Louise L. Hay

Too much prosperity makes most men fools. [and most women, too, of course.]
— Italian Proverb

#3 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotes

— James Allen

#4 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotations

In an overly materialistic world, prosperity is unfortunately and invariably associated with hoards of money and countless possessions. Yet to the truly prosperous people of this world, prosperity is prosperity in its purest and original sense. Prosperity comes from the Latin word "spes", which means “hope and vigor.” To the truly prosperous person, being prosperous means being positive and happy in the moment.
— from 101 Really Important Things You Already Know, But Keep Forgetting by Ernie Zelinski

#5 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotes

As much as we need a prosperous economy, we also need a prosperity of kindness and decency.
— Caroline Kennedy

#6 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotations

Love your bills. It is essential that we stop worrying about money and stop resenting our bills. Many people treat bills as punishments to be avoided if possible. A bill is an acknowledgement of our ability to pay. The creditor assumes you are affluent enough and gives you the service of product first. I bless with love and stamp a small kiss on each and every check I write. If you pay with resentment, money has a hard time coming back to you. If you pay with love and joy, you open the free flowing channel of abundance. Treat your money as a friend, not as something you wad up and crush in your pocket.
— Louise L. Hay

#7 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotes

When you are congruent in your personal life, you will be
congruent in your business life [which in large part contributes to your financial prosperity].
— Brendon Burchard, Founder of Experts Academy

#8 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotations

Never economize on the small luxuries of life. Drinking fine wine and eating chocolate won't solve your problems — but they won't hurt either.
from Life's Secret Handbook by Ernie Zelinski

#9 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotes

We deny ourselves the smallest comfort or pleasure; even if it only costs a few dollars. This is not prosperous spending.
Prosperity says you can have red bell peppers instead of green, rib eyes instead of sirloin, and romaine instead of iceberg. It's not about spending everything you make, but enjoying what you do spend without felling guilty about it . . . The positive feelings and emotions that prosperous spending brings is what attracts more positive things in your life.
— Joe Vitale

#10 of Top-Ten Sensational Prosperity Quotes

To rejoice in another's prosperity is to give content to your lot; to mitigate another's grief is to alleviate or dispel your own.
— Tryon Edwards

Prosperity for Smart People

Prosperity Image - Gold Coinds

You can't have the space for prosperity and success when you are obsessed with security. It is not possible to obtain unwavering security — physical, emotional, or economic — by having money. Keep in mind that security, like success, can be defined in many ways. If you focus less on how much your financial assets are worth, and more on what a creative and well-balanced individual you can be, security will take on a new meaning.
— from The Joy of Not Working by Ernie Zelinski

Prosperity Through The Joy of Not Working

Your security is not your job, or your bank account, or your investments, or your spouse or your parents. Your security is your ability to connect with the cosmic power that creates all things.
— Louise L. Hay

There is a spiritual realm that encompasses all beings.
Make friends with the angels, who will always be with you,
although invisible. Make good use of their assistance while following your dreams and in all your creative pursuits through life. Your
success and prosperity will come much easier and a lot quicker.
— from Life's Secret Handbook (Reminders for Adventurous Souls Who Want to Make a Big Difference in This World)

Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes; adversity not without many comforts and hopes.
— Francis Bacon

If you don't care about the people around you or treat them
as if they don't matter, you'll stop the flow of possibilities. This includes your financial prosperity. Creating a vehicle for good that you feel passionate about is the final step toward true prosperity.
— Joe Vitale

He that lives upon hope will die fasting.
— Benjamin Franklin,
The Way to Wealth

If you want to experience abundance, then don’t choose a path that ensures scarcity or limitation. Choose a path that has a shot of leading to prosperity. Say no to non-prosperous choices like a job with a fixed paycheck.
— Steve Pavlina

Practice being kind to yourself in small, concrete ways.
Look at your refrigerator. Are you feeding yourself nicely?
Do you have socdks? An extra set of sheets? What about a
new house plant? A thermos for the long drive to work?
Allow yourself to pitch out some of your ragged clothes.
You don't have to keep everything.
— Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity

Feeling prosperous means paying your utility bills on time and
with a smile on your face. Prosperity means not only giving to the
homeless person, but having a smile on your face when you do it.
Prosperity also means buying fresh produce with a smile on your
face instead of buying day-old bread or bargain overripe fruit with
a scowl on your face. Still more, being prosperous means tipping
generously with a smile on your face when the waiter has given you great service instead of trying to stiff him with a mere percent, or worse, no tip at all.
— from Career Success Without a Real Job by Ernie J. Zelinski

Every time I see a coin on the street, I stop, pick it up, put it into my pocket, and say out loud "Thank you, God, for this symbol of abundance that keeps flowing into my life" Never once have I asked, "Why only a penny, God? You know I need a lot more than that."
— Dr. Wayne Dyer

It's God's will for you to live in prosperity instead of poverty.
It's God's will for you to pay your bills and not be in debt.
— Joel Osteen

It’s a serious character weakness to think you can get something of value for little or nothing, to believe that life will flood you with abundance when you won’t commit yourself to delivering your best contribution in exchange. In fact, it’s a safe bet that you’ll subconsciously sabotage yourself from being in such a place for long. You won’t allow yourself to receive what you don’t feel you’ve earned. To receive life’s bounty, you must know without a doubt that you deserve it.
— Steve Pavlina

We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.
— Dwight L. Moody

Remember God in prosperity, and He will remember you in adversity.
— Muhammad

The trick is to make sure you don't die waiting for prosperity to come.
— Lee Iacocca

Always feeling rushed is no way for a prosperity-minded individual to live. The objective of life is not to get through it as fast as possible.
— from The Joy of Not Working by Ernie Zelinski

Prosperity Through The Joy of Not Working

Prosperity in the form of wealth works exactly the same as everything else. You will see it coming into your life when you are unattached to needing it.
— Dr. Wayne Dyer

We can have technology, prosperity, nice homes and cars, but at the same time we must be conscious of what we are dumping into the water, the air and our food.
— Kevin Richardson

There is in every true woman's heart, a spark of heavenly fire,  which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity,
but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.

— Jan Denise

When you focus on being a blessing, God makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance.
— Joel Osteen

We already have so much abundance. We truly do. We need not search too far. It is within. The reason we fail to recognize this is because we haven't quite mastered the art of being. For abundance to prevail, we must have love, gratitude, acceptance and compassion.
— John Welwood

It's a funny thing about life, if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you will often get it.
— W. Somerset Maugham

The world is full of abundance and opportunity, but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car, a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel. They expect little and as a result they get little.
— Ben Sweetland

True Prosperity Is Living Easily and Happily Whether You Have Lots of Money or Not!

Friendship makes prosperity brighter, while it lightens adversity by sharing its griefs and anxieties.
— Marcus Tullius Cicero

Heard about The Secret and The Law of Attraction?
Want to know the secret behind The Secret? The Law of Attraction will not bring you abundance and prosperity for just thinking pleasant, positive thoughts. It is no cosmic mistake that the word "attraction" has the word "action" in it. Abundance is, in fact, the result of creative thinking and a lot of action. Much action, much prosperity, in other words. What are you waiting for?
— from Life's Secret Handbook by Ernie Zelinski

Begin to recognize prosperity everywhere, and rejoice in it.
— Louise L. Hay

The Beat scene was beautiful. It was live jazz and we were just dancing our hearts out for hours on end, happy on very little. I mean we were living, most of us, on a shoestring. Yet, there was always so much to go around, if you know what I mean. You know, there was so much energy and sharing and inspiration and pure moments and quality times together on very little or no money.
— Suzanne Verdal McCallister  (the real Suzanne that Leonard Cohen sang about in his song Suzanne)

Spiritual leaders say that as a matter of course prosperity will come when you are pursuing the right things with your life.

For some people this means having to give up a substantial amount of their income, at least for a certain period of time.

Prosperity cannot be restored by raids upon the public Treasury.
— Herbert Hoover

Having taught economics courses at private vocational schools and universities, I have always had a problem with GNP as a yardstick of prosperity. GNP is improved by increases in questionable activities such as consumption of cigarettes and the production of weapons. Moreover, a substantial increase in car accidents will favorably affect GNP [and apparently national prosperity] because more funerals, hospital visits, car repairs, and new car purchases will result.

— Tacitus

Prosperity makes few friends.
— Luc de Clapier

Your prosperity will grow to the extent that you do. Your feeling of prosperity may require that you overcome the fear of leaving a secure job for a less secure job, with less pay, but a lot more freedom. Fact is, feeling more prosperous doesn’t necessarily mean earning more money. Sometimes it means earning less money.

— Plutarch

Of prosperity mortals can never have enough.
— Aeschylus

Contrary to popular belief, prosperity is an emotional state that has little to do with your wealth or the state of the economy. You can feel more prosperous in a one-room cottage than most wealthy people feel in a twenty-room mansion. Misers will hoard a lot of money and spendthrifts will spend whatever they have — you don’t have to do either to feel prosperous. You may have to give up your secure, high-paying corporate job, however — and grow spiritually in the process.
