Hoarding one’s hurts hurts only the hoarder.
Malcolm Forbes

David Weinberger
When I was younger, I liked money – the feel of it. I would sit with my dad and count his coins and be like, ‘Yeah.’ I’d saved ВЈ700 by the age of 10. I thought: ‘What the hell am I hoarding this for?’ So I bought a drum kit.
Cara Delevingne

We are not cisterns made for hoarding, we are channels made for sharing.

Americans want action for their money. They are fascinated by its self- reproducing qualities if it’s put to work. Gold- hoarding goes against the American grain; it fits in better with European pessimism than with America’s traditional optimism.

Rob Manuel

Innovation comes only from readily and seamlessly sharing information rather than hoarding it.

Susan Sontag
If money is your hope for independence you will never have it
Henry Ford
People who wander are nicer to be with. Movement militates against hoarding possessions and against bigotry, because you are constantly moving across boundaries and having to negotiate with people.

Do not discourage your children from hoarding, if they have a taste to it; whoever lays up his penny rather than part with it for a cake, at least is not the slave of gross appetite; and shows besides a preference always to be esteemed, of the future to the present moment.
Samuel Johnson

Paul Arden

Everything can be brought to the extreme. Food is good, overeating is bad. Possessions are good, hoarding is bad. Guilt is good, obsessing about guilt is bad. But I think guilt is good because I’m like, “Hey, I just stabbed that guy and I feel pretty good.”
Lino Rulli
Knowledge is power. Information is power. The secreting or hoarding of knowledge or information may be an act of tyranny camouflaged as humility.
Robin Morgan
The world doesn’t need more people playing small. It’s time to stop hiding out and start stepping out. It’s time to stop needing and start leading. It’s time to start sharing your gifts instead of hoarding them or pretending they don’t exist. It’s time you started playing the game of life in a “big” way.
T. Harv Eker
Have you been able to think out and manage your own life? You have done the greatest task of all…. All other things, ruling, hoarding, building, are only little appendages and props, at most.

Andy Behrman
I lay there silently, hoarding my small dignity. I did not ask about the gate or the closet.

I did not know that my bones, those solids, those pieces of sculpture would not splinter.
Anne Sexton

Eugene V. Debs
Reaganomics, that makes sense to me. It means if you don’t have enough money, it’s just because poor people are hoarding it.
Kevin Rooney
To compose our character is our duty, not to compose books, and to win, not battles and provinces, but order and tranquility in our conduct. Our great and glorious masterpiece is to live appropriately. All other things, ruling, hoarding, building, are only little appendages and props, at most.
Michel de Montaigne
You and I, we are the Church, no? We have to share with our people. Suffering today is because people are hoarding, not giving, not sharing. Jesus made it very clear. Whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it to me. Give a glass of water, you give it to me. Receive a little child, you receive me. Clear.
Mother Teresa
Greed is a deprivation of abundance, a hoarding, a constriction of energy.
Terry Tempest Williams
