Stirring up trouble…

I just added this little gem to my Frugal Quotes generator:

We live in a strange society.  The Bible says that debt is a curse and children are a blessing.  But we apply for a curse and reject blessings.  Doug Philips

You can see the script in action here, but if you want my script on your blog just pop over to Frugal Hacks and look in the sidebar to grab the code.  Once installed, it will show any of over 100 different random quotes about debt, frugal living, and other wise and witty bits of financial advice and commentary.  As I add new quotes on my end, they will show up on yours too.

Cool, huh?


  1. I’ve seen the above quote as a banner before on Doug Phillip’s blog… any idea how to get that banner? I’d LOVE to add it to our blog!

  2. Shelbi,
    Funny! I’ve been trying to come up with a smart comeback, but you’ve got me. I just have to bow to your superior wit and admit that I don’t necessarily agree with all the quotes I chose to include. We think investments that eat can be quite worthwhile. 😀

    Which quote do you mean? Can you provide a link to verify it so I can update it?
    Thanks for letting me know!

  3. I may be wrong about this, but I believe that the first quote should be attributed to GK Chesterton.

  4. Great quote. I had this one on my status on Facebook last month. It is also the first thing written in my journal for 2010 🙂

    Thanks for sharing it here too.

  5. I think I found a possible …er, …conflict of quotes:

    “Never invest your money in anything that eats or needs repairing.”
    Billy Rose

    Unless I’m misunderstanding, that quote is rather incongruous with your quote from Doug Phillips :).
    Just saying… :).

Don't just think it: say it!
