Gold quotes page 1

Economically, and historically, paper is not money. It can't be money. It's only money
because we're forced to
use it because there is a residual trust in the pieces of paper that
we carry around because at one time it did
have real value... History shows that people have
chosen gold first and probably silver second. They'd rather
have cigarettes than pieces of
paper.
Ron Paul, 1983

Aesop

English proverb

Roosevelt asked the American public to turn in their gold in 1933, for which they were paid
$20.22 per ounce in paper money. He then raised the price of gold to $35 an ounce. In other
words, for every $20.22 in gold that was turned in, the public was cheated out of about
$15... If anyone was caught holding gold coins, the punishment was a $10,000 fine and ten
years in jail. One reason for doing this was to get the public used to paper money as the sole
currency of the world.
Robert Kiyosaki

Gold is the glue, sinews, and strength of war.
English proverb

Let us fall in love again and scatter gold dust all over the world.
Rumi

What you have to do is you have to find things that will protect your assets, real assets:
Silver, rice, natural gas; something that will hold its value in an inflationary time… I do it two
ways: I own gold and silver coins in my hand, in my house, in my box; I also own gold and
silver futures - that's another way to do it.
Jim Rogers
