The art of living easily as to money is to pitch your scale of living one degree below your means.

To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy. As everyone else, I love to dunk my crust in it. But alone, it is not a diet designed to keep body and soul together.
- Bette Davis, The Lonely Life, 1962
Knowledge is like money the more he gets, the more he craves.
