Benjamin Franklin Quote – Money is a Vacuum

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one”

Benjamin Franklin graced us with many witty and intellectual quotes, some proverbs of life, and others simple facts of life. This is one of those quotes. Money does tend to pull and ‘suck’ us in, making us want it even more. That isn’t to say that money is directly bad, but money should not be the object. If you go into a job or business with only the thought of money, you won’t achieve happiness. Find what you’re passionate about, and the money will follow.
