Some people are a fountain of useless information, remembering song lyrics for every tune since the 1950s and thousands of movie quotes. Quotes are still published in books but the Internet is now the best place to find them in a jiffy. Whether you like to buy gold coins, jewelry, or gold bars, you will appreciate these great quotes about the precious metal.
Mae West should have been labeled a psychic for saying, “No gold-digging for me; I take diamonds! We may be off the gold standard someday.” The U.S. eventually cast aside the gold standard in exchange for our current system. Thomas Hood would not have minded, as long as he could still get his hands on “Gold! Gold! Gold! Gold! Bright and yellow, hard and cold!”
The famous poet Robert Frost even found gold a topic of choice. An excerpt from one of his poems goes, “But not gold in commercial quantities. Just enough gold to make the engagement rings and marriage rings of those who owned the farm. What gold more innocent could one have asked for?”
Chinese Proverbs provide us with some of the most memorable life lessons. One of them reads, “Gold cannot be pure, and people cannot be perfect.” We think that is definitely some food for thought. Though an engagement ring need not be made of gold, this quote is rather funny: “The three rings of marriage are the engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffering.”
Graham Greene had tongue in cheek when he said, “I had very good dentures once. Some magnificent gold work. It’s the only form of jewelry a man can wear that women fully appreciate.” Mahatma Gandhi provided us with a reminder to focus on what matters, stating “It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”
