as reprinted in “Simple Abundance” by Sarah Ban Breathnach

“When money is plenty this is a man’s world. When money is scarce it is a woman’s world. When all else seems to have failed, the woman’s instinct comes in. She gets the job. That is a reason why, in spite of all that happens, we continue to have a world.”

~Ladies’ Home Journal, October 1932

“It is easy to be independent when you’ve got money. But to be independent when you haven’t got a thing-that’s the Lord’s test.”

~Mahalia Jackson
