Collection of quotes on honest – and dishonest – money

A great collection of quotes is contained here.

The best one, by Chief Justice Salmon Chase in dissent of Knox vs. Lee:

The legal tender quality [of money] is only valuable for the purposes of dishonesty.

And perhaps the funniest:

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, and that’s good enough.
